Women’s Movement A Product Of Hope And Imagination, Yet Mrs. Clinton Makes Fun Of These Things

The women’s movement, like all civil rights movements, was first of all the hope that life could be better for women in America and elsewhere in the world.

All human rights movements start off as hope and imagination.

It takes a lot of hard work to bring about meaningful change, but it starts off as hope and imagination

Here is what Hillary Clinton, a beneficiary of the woman’s movement, said today while campaigning in Providence, Rhode Island.

“Now I could stand up here and say, let’s get everybody together, let’s get unified the sky will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing,” she said, to a smattering of giggles. “And everyone will know we should do the right thing, and the world will be perfect.”    

What a lousy thing for Mrs. Clinton to say. 

Why be a liberal if you can’t hope something better without being made fun of by someone on your own side of the aisle?

  1. She is jaded and Obama is naive, he sends out flyers saying you have to buy health care even if you cant afford it and she makes fun of how high he is on hope, the better pick will never be known and the results of who takes office will be told by time. There is no doubt that we all want hope and hearing someone with hope can be hard to swallow, we are all jaded and through lifes experiences we see the death and suffering and yet we as a society ignore the problems until they hit our homes directly and we shop at wallmart and let the chinese buy our debt while we get drunk at hooters watching sports. the congress will put an end to steroids but not homeless vets, its a sick selfish world and darwin was right. I am not hopeless but I am not naive either.

  4. THIS IS A CHANCE TO MAKE HISTORY.SENATOR CLINTON OFFERS THE ONLY TRUE UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE.IT IS WRONG TO ASSUME YOUNG PEOPLE DO NOT NEED HEALTHCARE COVERAGE.A TWENTY TWO YEAR OLD CAN HAVE A SERIOUS ACCIDENT OR CATASTROPHIC DISEASE. A THIRTY YEAR OLD CAN HAVE A HEART ATTACK.TWENTY AND THIRTYS ARE PRIME CHILD BEARING YEARS.IF YOU LOOSE YOUR JOB OR CHANGE CAREERS IT CAN BE EXPENSIVE TO GET HEALTHCARE ON YOUR OWN.IF YOU NEED TO CARE FOR ELDERLY PARENTS WHO DO NOT HAVE HEALTHCARE IT CAN DEPLETE YOUR SAVINGS AND RETIREMENT PLAN.IF WE ARE TO BE A GLOBALLY STRONG COUNTRY WE NEED TO BE GLOBALLY HEALTHY.PLEASE VOTE YOUR HEART AND MAKE UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE A REALITY.
