promised as President that his would be the "most ethical administration in the

Bill Clinton and His Values
The spiritual values contained in Biblical Christianity
(honesty, integrity, purity, love for God, respect for oneself and others,
etc.) are the values that make for strong lives, strong families, strong
churches, and strong societies.
Economist Warren Brookes said,
The spiritual values
[Christians and Jews] celebrate are universal and fundamental, and without
them, even the most conceptually efficient economic system will fail. Democracy
itself could disappear into tyranny. After all, economic activity is about the
adding of value. But in its essence, value is spiritual, the expression of
qualities of thought: self-discipline, order, self-respect, honesty, integrity,
purity, loyalty, principle, genuine pride, love and respect for others. The
list is infinite. Societies with strong spiritual values tend to generate
economic value and expand. Societies with too materialistic values ultimately
fall into disrepair and decay. Those that have tried to abandon religious or
theological support for moral values, which are the key to self-government,
have generally declined into despotic deprivation.

Bill Clinton does not share those values.
In fact, Bill Clinton said of those values....

President Bill Clinton, Nov. 8, 1997
I'm a bald faced
but I know you don't care.
What's troubling is that many American people
don't care. They either
don't think a person's values are important or they actually share those
values. For others, they are willing to overlook the character issues if the
candidate will tell them what they want to hear. And for many others, they have
become desensitized to corruption because in their view ALL candidates are
Bill Clinton made masterful use of the mainstream media to
propaganda and convince the American people that values
didn't matter so long as he was looking out for their best interests. And the
dumbed down American populace bought the lies - hook, line, and sinker.
being President a reflection on the American people?
In the years following Clinton's presidency, the American people
were again called upon to relinquish countless civil liberties and ignore the
U.S. Constitution to another slick talking President. Following the events of
September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush was able to convince most
Americans that a rag-tag group of people living in caves and communicating with
walkie-talkies were able to orchestrate a plot to cicumvent the most powerful
military on the planet and fly giant airliners into American buildings with
pinpoint accuracy. That nonsense was later followed by even more ingenious
tales of a backward tyrant in possession of weapons of mass destruction, thus
providing the excuse to invade a sovereign nation and overthrow it's leader.
Embolden by their web of deceit and the gullibility of the American
public, George Bush handed over to an openly collectivist Barack Obama the keys
to the Treasury of the United States. Seeded with many appointees from the
original Clinton Administration and a select few keepers of the Bush reign,
Obama proceeded to transfer trillions of dollars from the American taxpayer
into the coffers of an International banking cartel. Within months, America's
population, their children and grandchildren were enslaved to soaring deficits
and a debt that can never be repaid. All this... thanks to the policies
originally introduced to America by William Jefferson Clinton and his cronies
|No matter what you might
think of his morals or politics, he may be the slickest politician ever to
slide down Pennsylvania Avenue. Even if a videotape surfaces showing him with a
bundle of checks and missing files in one arm and a woman of ill repute on the
other, he´ll continue to slip through the net." - Libertarian presidential candidate Harry Browne
What are the values Clinton thinks important?
Honesty and Truth
Honesty and truth is a value that many Americans no longer hold.
Far too Americans have for so long listened to the lies, they no longer have
the capacity to even discern truth from lies. Rather, they have taken the easy
broad road of accepting whatever they hear from the mainstream media propaganda
pundits without question. They have preferred to embrace their own relative
truths oftentimes not even knowing the basis for how they arrive at that
Bill Clinton, over the years, has repeatedly evaded
tough questions, or offered partial truths, instead of being forthright and
honest. Clinton says one thing (what people want to hear), do another, and then
change his tune again almost before the ink is dry from the pens of
Establishment owned reporters. In politics it's called "maneuvering" - in
reality, it's called lying. Sadly, many
Americans judge the man by what he says rather than what he does.
|"Clinton's an unusually good
liar. Unusually good. Do you realize that?''
- Democratic US Sen. (and Medal of Honor
recipient) Bob Kerrey of Nebraska.
In his 1995 State of the Union Address, of 23 points made, 23
were incorrect and/or outright lies. Did anyone in the liberal mainstream media
call him to account? Of course not. Rather, they praised him.
astonishing to me that Bill Clinton, a man of obviously questionable moral
character, was even considered by the American people for the highest
executive office in our government, let alone be elected to it. And to be
re-elected after showing his true colors was a disgrace!
What the Democrats and the Clinton administration wanted to
change is everything we have stood for during the past three hundred years,
from the leadership of respected elected officials to the moral foundations of
liberty. They wanted to seal the tomb of the Constitution
our forefathers pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor for
and replace it with the
10 Planks of Communism. Hence, the reason they don't like
to look at the past but only the future. To liberals, their failed programs and
crimes of the past should not reflect on their empty "promises" for the future.
They never speak of retaining America's greatness; they want to remake it after
their own progressive image.
Bill Clinton and his liberal cronies have no real ideas except
for spending more money. So, rather than addressing the issues in a
constructive way, these liberals have taken a different tack:
- They lie.
- They redefine terms to fit their agenda.
- They call their opponents "extremists."
- They frighten the country with fraudulent claims of the
threat their opponents supposedly pose.
- They scare old people.
- They charge that their adversaries actually want to starve
the vulnerable, take food from childrens mouths, poison the earth, oppress the
helpless and make little children sick.
Liberal Democrats loved to say,
Clinton is a leader who does what's right not because it is easy, but
because it is the right thing to do."
- Since when was lying the "right thing to do"?
- Since when was sexually harrassing women the "right thing to
- Since when was turning away from the covenantal vision and
biblical principles of our Founders the "right thing to do"?
- Since when was infanticide the "right thing to do"?
- Since when was limiting First Amendment rights based on
political beliefs the "right thing to do"?
- Since when was funding with American tax money obscene and
sacrilegious paintings the "right thing to do"?
- Since when was obstrucing justice the "right thing to
- Since when was promoting homosexuality the "right thing to
Doing the right thing is an honorable thing and a value all
Americans should aspire to, but redefining perversion, dishonesty, and evil as
"the right thing to do" is an affront to all that is right, dishonors the
office of the Presidency and is hardly a value to esteem.
foremost leader in our nation, Bill Clinton ruthlessly ignored the wishes and
values of the American people, as he has pursued a liberal social agenda the
likes of which we have never seen before.
The direction President Clinton
led this country was appalling to all who fear God and dare to believe that
the old fashioned morality of the Bible has yet to be improved upon. Bill
Clinton's outspoken support for homosexual and
abortion rights should alarm all Christians. Add
to that allegations of marital infidelity and
for most Christians, this man epitomized all that is
really wrong with America.
Opportunity and Responsibility
President Clinton claimed he believes in opportunity for every
American, for every child, for every family. But opportunity, he says, must be
accompanied by responsibility; we should meet our responsibilities to one
another, to our families, to our communities, and to our country. And, what's
his idea of an opportunity... to join Hillary's
Ironic that a "draft
dodger" would talk about meeting our responsibilities.
Principle and Ethics
Candidate Bill Clinton said, "American politics is being held
hostage by big money interests.... [C]liques of $100,000 donors buy access to
Congress and the White House.'' Yes, as President Bill Clinton sold private
White House dinners to donors who gave at least $100,000 to the Democratic
National Committee - plus "private impromptu meetings'' with senior officials,
a "personal DNC staff contact'' to cut through federal red tape, and seats on
foreign trade missions.
Although Clinton promised to raise ethical standards when he
first ran for president, his administration was totally mired in an ethical
swamp and according to the GAO, ethics investigations of the Clintons and their
aides are costing American taxpayers more than $1 million per month.
- In May of 1993 the White House fired seven long-term travel
