When it comes to Crooked Hillary Clinton, there are very few instances when any of her views are even remotely understandable. Virtually everything she says is a lie. But even when you take that into account, the issues she is actually transparent and open about are all completely horrifying. When it comes to this corrupt politician, there is no winning.
One of the most appalling stances Hillary has taken is fighting hard to enact stricter surveillance measures on the American people. Under the ridiculous guise of “safety,” Clinton has openly supported the idea of infringing on individuals’ rights to privacy.
Even when Clinton was basically forced to be critical of the NSA — back in 2015, shortly after the Edward Snowden conflict — she used language and rhetoric that refused to take any side on the issue. As a result, most Americans quickly realized that she was trying to play both sides in order to protect her political standing. She would initially lean towards defending the American people’s rights, but would ultimately back the NSA and the surveillance state.
Of course, that’s exactly what happened.
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, though. After all, she was quoted as saying, “How much is too much? And how much is not enough? That’s the hard part,” in regards to the amount of power the NSA should have. There’s no doubt that she believes that government organizations should have more control, power and resources than the country’s citizens. Politicians like Hillary believe that they own us — they believe that they’re above the law — so they continue to expand their own power by weakening ours.
This is a classic authoritarian leftist maneuver. Trying to suppress the rights of the people by pretending they’re doing it for our own good is shady and condescending. People like Clinton clearly think we’re all stupid enough to fall for this. Should she unfortunately be elected this fall, we’re all in serious danger of being spied on everywhere we go.
