Vote for a female president. Sure. But Hillary is not Golda Meir

To The Daily Sun,

Hillary, you do not have the temperament to be president.

You watch what and how you say things. But that is natural for someone with legal background.

Temperament definition: a person's nature, especially as it permanently affects their behavior.

You lied to the families and American citizens that the cause of Benghazi was a video.
Now you are being sued by two of the families of the Benghazi dead. As you said they misunderstood you in their grief when you and the families met the caskets in America.

They did not misunderstand you. You lied.

Your "temperament" gave Putin power in the Russian reset. Russia took back some of Crimea. Russia just recently bombed air fields where our jets are located. He is constantly crossing the line and Obama does nothing. There is still tension at the border between the two countries.

I don't want war with Russia, but it was your reset button with Russia gave Russia the power and impetus to cross the border and take back Crimea.

You negotiated lower numbers of nuclear weapons with Russia but helped in the negotiations in giving Iran money to get their nuclear weapon and intercontinental ballistic missiles. Oh ... do not forget, Iran will now have more money to support terrorists who hate the U.S.

Iran just recently received over $400 million in unmarked currency and called us a banana republic.

You said you were going to get carried away with all the jobs that you are going to create. Your economic plan is a job-killer.

You are perpetuating the economic classes. Tax the rich is what you want.

The rich create jobs. The top 5 percent pay 50 percent of the federal taxes. The rich invest in new companies and improvements in existing companies, which creates jobs.

The only jobs created in the past eight years were fast food restaurants, and low-skilled paying jobs. Oh yes, green-energy jobs. Yes, they were created, (but) only because the federal government subsidized them.

So I pay taxes to create a job that would not have been created without the government subsidy.

Let the market create the jobs.

When JFK and Reagan cut taxes, there were many high-paying jobs created.

Hillary, you did not ask for the endorsement from the largest police union. You are perpetuating the race problem in this country. All lives matter.

Our military is in trouble. There are jet fighters with no pilots to fly them.

Intelligence reports were manipulated to show that the U.S. was better in fight against ISIS. The White House did not take blame, but suggested the blame be put on the military. Surprise, surprise, the White House did not take any blame.

Hillary when secretary of state wanted to outsource control to Clinton Foundation. Can you imagine a foundation that sold rights to U.S. uranium to Russia for money to be in control of the State Department permanently?

Hillary, the State Department was up for sale when you were secretary of state. What would you sell if you were president?

Hillary, you do not have the temperament to be president of the United States.

We want a strong America.

Hillary, would I like a woman president? Sure. But Hillary, you are no Golda Meir or Margaret Thatcher.

You do not even come close.

Democrats had the votes to do whatever they wanted in 2010; so why didn't they?

To The Daily Sun,

In her Aug. 10 letter, Bernadette Loesch condemns Republicans for not passing laws that Democrats could have passed, but didn't, early in President Obama's first term.

Democrats didn't need a single Republican vote to pass anything they wanted. Why didn't they fix the problems they complain about? Voting? Gun violence? Public education? Aging and dangerous infrastructure. Too much money in politics? In particular, why didn't Democrats close the wealth gap (rather than making the rich richer and the rest of us poorer)?

The obvious answer is that Democrat solutions don't work or Democrat politicians don't want the problems solved.

Loesch refers to President Obama's comment, "If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists ..." Our Constitution defined a government for the purpose of protecting our liberties. Who believes that is the priority of Washington politicians and bureaucrats? Seventy percent of Americans believe our country is headed in the wrong direction.

Government is making American life riskier by releasing imprisoned criminals early, by ignoring our immigration laws allowing illegal immigrants to roam our country killing 400-500 Americans annually and committing thousands of rapes, robberies, burglaries, and other crimes, and by allowing thousands of unvetted immigrants and refugees to come here from hotbeds of violence and terrorism.

Government (Obama's policies) has created an economic environment that makes most Americans poorer. Good jobs are destroyed and are typically replaced with lower paying part-time jobs. More and more Americans struggle with stagnant or reduced wages, increased cost of living, and increased taxes.

Is government accomplishing its primary responsibility to protect the people's liberties? No, Democrat policies are increasing the threats from criminals and terrorists. Just as important, Democrats are pursuing polices to take away American's constitutional rights.

Americans have been threatened with prosecution for speaking politically incorrectly (even if factually), e.g., about Islam and about climate change. The power of government has been used against everyday citizens who complain about corruption in Washington, oppose, or peacefully organize to oppose government policies.

Our Second Amendment Right is under attack and it will disappear if President Obama or a President Clinton appoints another Supreme Court justice. Law-abiding citizens are the scapegoats because Democrat politicians refuse to protect the American people from criminals and terrorists.

Contrary to our constitutional rights, Americans are subject to warrantless searches, excessive or no bail, excessive delays before trials, other invasions of our privacy, and arrest without legitimate probable cause.

President Obama's policies harm most Americans, making us poorer, less free and less safe. A President Clinton would continue those policies that harm most Americans but reward her rich and powerful supporters.
