CLINTON'S $2,000/TICKET, BOOK SIGNING
Hillary Clinton is selling tickets for $2375 Canadian, $2,000 US for attending her book signing tour. That people will pay such a price, or any price, for the event is reflective of the American Condition that has devolved over at least 8 decades -- since the "Progressives" started takeover of the once quite honorable Democrats. Hillary Clinton epitomizes the corruption that Harry Truman spoke of when he said, "the only way to become wealthy in politics is to be corrupt."
As a person, Hillary Clinton is of no importance to most Americans. However, what she does, virtually entirely for herself, is of import. Her search for power and enormous wealth for doing nothing is of import to all Americans. That she is celebrated by millions is reflective of The American Condition that has devolved over many decades. I believe President Harry Truman, who eschewed the use of one's government position to accumulate wealth, would condemn her actions. The Honorable president Truman would, in all likelihood, view Clinton as dishonorable, hence unworthy of the presidency. Yet she wants it and millions agree and vote for her.
Don't try to tell me there is no "cultural revolution" in America as a once-friendly reporter averred and dissolved a longtime friendship. I'm trying to envisage Truman's reaction if he could be told that Clinton, who has made 10s, even 100s, of millions of dollars, now seeks $2375 per ticket for a book tour. Perhaps her 100s of millions from the Clinton Foundation and her reported sale of their Hamptons vacation property for $29 million will not be sufficient to sustain her. She epitomizes an article I wrote some years ago -- "Breeding Mediocrity In America." It has been bred and is being nurtured with "leaders" like Clinton. And greed!
