Madame Secretary By Raúl Eduardo Chao
Paperback: $14.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book presents 40 reasons why Hillary Clinton should not be elected to the presidency of the United States in 2016. All historical references and arguments are taken from prestigious magazines... More > and newspapers like the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN and the Wall Street Journal. The author contends that the only path for Hillary's road to the White House is to destroy her adversary, much like Barrack Obama did against Mitt Romney in the 2012 elections. No candidate to the presidence of the US has ever had so many scandals, lies and conflicts of interest than Hillary Clinton. If she reaches the presidency, her appointments to the Supreme Court will affect the growth and constitutional order in the US for several generations into the future. America should not go back to the corruption and crony capitalism of the 1990s. She should be stopped while there is time. Not voting in 2016 will get Americans a Supreme Court that will forever distort and destroy the legacy of our founding fathers.< Less
