Hillary: ‘Government Cannot and Should Not Control Any Individual's Life’

Hillary: ‘Government Cannot and Should Not Control Any Individual's Life’ By Pete Winn May 16, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, told an assemblage of human rights and “civil society” activists gathered at the State Department Wednesday that “government cannot and should not” control the lives of individuals.

“(T)o make the case for civil society is really quite simple because government cannot and should not control any individual’s life – tell you what to do, what not to do,” Clinton said, taking part in a “Global Dialogue of Civil Society.”

Clinton said that any “sustainable society” must have three “legs” to stand on: an accountable government, a free-market economy, and civil society.

“The economy has to be in the hands of those who are the entrepreneurs and creative innovators,” she said. “But it is in civil society where we live our lives. That’s where our families are formed; that’s where our faith is practiced. That’s where we become who we are, through voluntary activities, through standing up for our common humanity. And so, as we see the explosion of civil society groups around the world, we want to support you.”

Civil Society is a buzzword for U.S. efforts to bring “social change” and “democracy” to countries of the world by working with “civil society activists” around the world.

Clinton drew on her own experience as a social activist to illustrate what the U.S. supports.

“I started my career working in civil society,” she said.

But it is too late to be the first gay POTUS...shame.

What she means by "life" is what they do with their sex organs.

Everything else should be under government control, especially their earnings and property.

Government should not control individual lives.

Unless, of course, the individual lives are unwanted. Then it is dandy to kill them with tax dollars.

There's no other explanation for all the "Democrats fear Zero is unelectable" stories we've been seeing lately. The Bamster is doing the Slave Party equivalent of the RINO swan dive, on cue. I can't see Romnuts doing anything but taking a political powder under the circumstances. From 'first black President' to 'first woman President,' here we come. Sorry ladies, but I'm afraid that there are just too many women who would get all tingly about this for a squishy RINO pulling his punches in the name of chivalry to overcome. Hence, the media game will be to start by playing up 'Romney is mean.' He'll respond by trying to prove he's 'a nice guy.' Game over.

One problem with your scenario.

If the Democrat party gives the boot to "the first black president" -- in favor of "the first womean president" -- they will lose the black vote. Forever.

And, if the Democrat Party can't command 90% of the black vote, they will never win another election.

Guffaw! A disciple of Alynski. What an odd, incongruous thing to say in a discussion of civil society. She's never believed that. With every fiber of her being, she has always lived and breathed as an unadulterated statist. A true believer. A subtle dance to the right during an election year? Trying to sound more centrist? Somebody contemplating an 11th-hour run for Pres?

It means something entirely different when she says it.
Conservatives: Gov't should not make laws to take away my freedom, property and livelihood.
Liberals: Gov't should not make laws to curtail abortions, food stamps, handouts, benefits, affirmative action etc.

Personally, I don’t think Romney has a chance, even against Obama. But I do think that the Democrats may simply be sick of Obama. A lot of his corporate fanciers have seen the cold light of day, I think his inept handling of the Afgahn situation and other foreign situations has alienated even a lot of Democrats, and it is pretty clear that Obamacare is not popular with anybody and will probably be overturned.

He is focusing on an increasingly narrower segment of the Democratic constituency, and while Hollywood and blacks may like him no matter what, the rest of the Dems are feeling a bit neglected. I think they would be very happy to replace him, particularly with Hillary. Hollywood would come around, blacks might not vote for Hillary but they certainly wouldn’t vote for the Republican either, and I think it would give the Democrats as a whole a chance to regroup and no longer feel the party was focused on just one group (blacks) with one program (redistribution of income) and one goal (government uber alles).

So personally, I don’t see this as an unlikely scenario at all.

OTOH, if he steps down because of "birthers" and the Rats let him go for Hillary, not only will they still vote for the Slave Party, Zero may just get the insurrection he wants.

Thanks Sub-Driver. She's just another left wing liar.
Clinton said that any "sustainable society" must have three "legs" to stand on: an accountable government, a free-market economy, and civil society.
To maintain civility, we need the 1st Amendment (which is why the left pushes for "hate speech" and "zero tolerance") and the 2nd Amendment (which follows right behind the 1st because some people are hard of hearing).
