Thanks to all of the pyrotechnics at the first presidential debate on Monday night – and thanks to Donald Trump’s Chernobyl-style meltdown over his IRS records, his business history, his Iraq war position, and the like – it was easy to overlook the insane proposals put forward by Hillary Clinton.
Hillary openly advocated some of the most radical propositions in American history. Here are six of them.
1. “Profit-Sharing.” Clinton advocated making “the economy fairer.” In promoting that stupid notion – stupid, because mutually consensual exchange is by nature “fair” from any objective point of view – she pushed raising the national minimum wage (throwing thousands out of work) and “equal pay for women’s work” (read: unequal pay for the same work for men). But her truly insane line came next: “I also want to see more companies do profit-sharing. If you help create the profits, you should be able to share in them, not just the executives at the top.” Now, many companies already have so-called “profit sharing” – employees who own stock benefits. On a broad level, all companies have “profit sharing” – you have continued employment because your company earns a profit. You don’t have a share of every dollar of profit earned because you don’t get dinged for every loss. But Hillary seems to be advocating for a full-scale governmental intervention into every business in America – letting the feds decide how much employees should make in every industry. This is, as Dennis Prager pointed out today, economic fascism.
2. “Clean Energy.” Hillary proposed that we would have 10 million new jobs through government investment. This is hogwash. Obama made the same sort of claims about his green jobs programs, then later had to admit that his administration couldn’t even define a green job. When she says that we must deploy “half a billion more solar panels,” she’s operating in a fantasy universe where carbon based fuels are less efficient than solar power, as Trump rightly pointed out.Read the last 4 NSANE Things Hillary Said In the Debate HERE.
