Is Hillary Clinton Ill?

Lew Rockwell links to a story about Susan Sarandon raising the possibility that Hillary Clinton is ill.

I hope libertarians recognize that from a libertarian perspective this is a plus for Hillary over Donald Trump.

A great leader that can barely get out of bed is much preferable to an energetic leader who can rally the masses.



A Sick Hillary Versus a High Energy Trump


  1. 'A great leader that can barely get out of bed is much preferable to an energetic leader who can rally the masses.'
    Dunno, I'm thinkin' FDR. Yikes!!!

    1. You are taking an absolute example versus a comparative example--and further we are talking about the types of illness that slow a person's work schedule.

      If Hillary and Trump were the same on all issues, from a libertarian perspective, because of her illnesses versus Trump's energy, you would want Hillary.

    2. I think if things worked that way, you'd be right. However, history is rife with examples of an ill president's "actions" actually being performed by his wife or someone else on the staff. In many ways, that makes Hillary more of a wildcard like Trump.

      Or, maybe more like Hillary puts it -- "a loose cannon". Of course Hillary is like a cannon pointed at your own hull.

      I think this election is much like the economy. It's just too difficult to predict the better candidate between Trump and Hillary. For one thing, there are too many complicating factors, and for another it's like deciding between a shotgun slug or a .50 cal to the head.

      I either won't vote, or I'll vote libertarian just for the hell of it, but I no longer even try to weigh in on the lesser of the other evils. There's just too much evil to see any good at all.

  2. A year or two ago Roger Stone had been suggesting that Hillary was quite sick (cancer?) and would not be in good enough health to become president. Maybe he was right.
