Conservative principles have been largely abandoned and ignored by national leaders for several decades. Those leaders all belong to, and owe allegiance to, liberal organizations and institutions whose goals are the destruction of independence for America and all other countries.
Interestingly, Hillary now morphs toward the right. With her eye on the Presidency, she tries to sound like a moderate. Her ingrained liberal views are being "rewritten" so she can garner the short-term memory of American voters by pretending to be something she is not.
Like President "W" who postured as a conservative to get elected and now presides well to the left of center, Hillary will falsely posture as a centrist knowing that as President she would then be empowered to officiate from her true, ultra-liberal position.
Government actions over four decades clearly demonstrate the desire of the rulers is to control all action and thought. Ever expanding government programs, with specious promises of social welfare for everyone, are creating a mentality of dependence. Under pretense that new laws and government control will make life better, elected and appointed liberals have tightened their grip on the throats of the citizenry. They strategically allow just enough goodies to flow through so that the portion of the population dependent upon their largesse will grow and ensure their reelection.
That mentality of dependency, and an unwillingness to really become involved in the politics and risks of freedom, just may now be strong enough to allow election of the chameleon Hillary as president. Should that happen the resulting abandonment of any pretext of individual freedom and responsibility will be shortly drowned under the flood of liberal, government-managed life in America.
