ELDER PATRIOT – Hillary Clinton would do better if she just hid under a rock until November 8th. The following video is offered as evidence:
She asks the union members “Why aren’t I fifty points ahead [you morons,] the choice has never been clearer.”
Really, Hillary? Maybe the men and women you are castigating in this video are looking at the maps below that indicate clearly why son many union members have decided to ignore their leadership this electoral cycle and are supporting Donald Trump. Union membership is down and jobs have disappeared in virtually every year since Mrs. Clinton first arrived in Washington in 1992.
Union members have grown tired of being dupes while their leadership sacrificed them to the altar of Hillary’s corporatist agenda.
Unionized workers have watched as their jobs were shipped abroad in the never-ending search for low-cost labor. Over the years Mrs. Clinton and her ilk talked a good game but the proof has been in the pudding. The only interest Mrs. Clinton had in unions was when union leadership delivered their votes to the Democratic Party. In return leadership benefitted personally while the men and women they represented saw their wages and opportunities shrink.
The steady decline of the unions was accelerated by the passage of NAFTA that Bill Clinton championed and Hillary Clinton openly and aggressively campaigned for. For Mrs. Clinton that was not a decision she regretted as her authorship and support of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) proves.
If you ever needed more proof that Mrs. Clinton lacks the temperament for the job of being president it is the hubris that she demonstrates in this video. It must be tough running on her record when her opponent has a long track record of creating so many union jobs.
