It is frustrating to the Progressive Left that so many Americans are opposed to their biggest agenda items; European/Chicago Style Gun Control, California-Style Environmental Extremism, Open Borders, and giving politicians, unions, the Democrat news-media and left-leaning special interest groups a monopoly on political speech.
“Committed Democrats and liberal-leaning interest groups are facing a reality in which any policy gains they achieve are going to come through the profligate use of executive authority, and Clinton is almost uniquely suited to deliver the goods,” (Vox Pundit Matt Yglesias) writes. “More than almost anyone else around, she knows where the levers of power lie, and she is comfortable pulling them, procedural niceties be damned.”
What he calls “Procedural Niceties” the rest of us would call “the Constitutional Separation of Powers.”
And indeed, Hillary’s agenda is open borders, gun control, and creating a left-wing monopoly on political speech.
Clinton has latched on to some of them. She says she’ll appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn the Citizens United decision that ushered in a new era of soft money in politics and force government contractors to disclose political donations. She says she’ll make sure her Homeland Security secretary is more lenient about deportations, and that she will close the “gun show loophole” by requiring private gun sellers to register as licensed dealers.
