Bill (O'Reilly), Hillary Rodham Clinton, And The "Problem" Of Human Freedom

by Austin Hill - May 4th, 2008 -

Most telling, in my view, was his line of questioning - - and her answers - - regarding America's energy policy, and her plans to change it. O’Reilly launched into this subject noting that Hillary has recently proposed a suspension of the federal gas tax, and called her proposal the “same old politician stuff” because the Democratic Party has opposed ANWR drilling, and because Hillary herself has voted seven times in the Senate to oppose nuclear energy.

After some back and forth during which Clinton would only blame “we, the people” - - and of course, “corporate America” for the problem, we finally get to her answers on what to do about the energy crisis. In Hillary's view, refusal to drill for oil or build nuclear reactors is not the problem. People driving SUVs and charging what the market will bear for the limited supply of oil is the problem. Her solution.

“Well,” Mrs. Clinton responded. “Here's what I'm going to do, and I've said this very clearly. In the short term, I do want a gas tax holiday, but to pay for it by putting a windfall profits tax on the oil companies…”

O’Reilly challenged Mrs. Clinton on what she meant by taxing the “windfall profits” of oil companies. After dodging some more, she finally stated that she wants to “set a baseline” (presumably she means some level of profits that she believes is “okay”), and when oil companies achieve beyond that baseline, then she intends to “tax the profits.”

From here, Mrs. Clinton went on to disclose her intention to “take-on OPEC” (O’Reilly assured her that, being in Saudi Arabia and Venezuela, the OPEC bosses “don’t care what you say”), and explained that she will “change the law” so American citizens can file anti-trust actions against OPEC, as well.

When O’Reilly noted that her plans to “take action” against OPEC would likely cause oil prices to rise even further, Mrs. Clinton insisted that “we're not going to be sitting idly by acting, you know, like we can just get away with this. We've got to change the way we behave, the way we drive….”

Please note; HIllary Clinton has no intention of allowing us to drill for oil or build nuclear power stations. She plans to make you drive smaller cars shorter distances. The problem is not that the Democrat Party has banned drilling for oil and building nuclear electic facitilities. The problem, to the Democrats, is that Americans will not be "responsibile".

You are just too free to choose the type of vehicle you want and drive whenever you feel like it. That is what has to change . . . as far as Clinton and the Democrats are concerned.

Talk about tyranny.
