Re: “Test Your Presidential Passion

The Clintons are so desperate that they will stoop to nothing in lying and deceiving the voters. Hillary tells lies causally. Her husband is no different. If that is not elitist, what is? He tells 7 lies in a 15 word statement, about Hillary’s Bosnia’s trip. What do they think of the voters? Do they think the voters are fool when without thinking they underestimate the intelligence of the hardworking voters in small town America? Are they so out of touch with the conditions of the small man that they think that small town America does not feel? Bill Clinton himself recently stated that the U.S. is in a deplorable state because of high gas, war in Iraq, foreclosure, and recession. Hillary says she needs to clean up. My question is, why does Hillary needs to clean up after Bush if people are not frustrated, bitter and angry? Being bitter, angry and frustrated does not mean they are not optimistic. Small Town Americans are proud. They are optimistic. And yes they are bitter, frustrated but optimistic. One is not exclusive of the other. People are human. They feel. They suffer when they cannot feed their kids, pay their bills, keep their homes, and have a job. They are bitter, frustrated and angry when their pregnant sister dies because she has no insurance. They are bitter, frustrated and angry when presidential campaigns owe them money after they have performed a service. They are bitter, frustrated and angry when political candidates patronize them with lies about Bosnian snipers. They are bitter angry and frustrated when their child in Iraq dies, a victim of a faceless enemies. Yes, they are bitter angry and frustrated. They have all rights to their humanity. But instead of killing, fighting or doing crime, these hard working people cling to something they are familiar with. They cling to something that will never let them down; their traditions and hometown culture. Like people every where when you are in pain you cling to something. It can be negative things like drugs and crime or it can be positive things like family, religion, faith, church, hunting, and sports. I reiterate it’s optimism and pride that make small town people cling to their hunting instead of killing. It’s optimism pride and faith that makes them cling to their religion instead of delusion. But yes they are bitter, angry and frustrated; let’s not steal their feeling, from them. Clintons get out of your, 109 million bubble and get in touch, get real. As for you McCain, you get angry; bitter and frustrated and negatively attack colleagues and family. Small Town America choose the positive alternative faith, hunting and HOPE.
