The upcoming Presidential election was defined for me yesterday when I read an article about a young American actress, Chloe Grace Moretz, who supports Hillary Clinton:
It’s not the first time Chloe Grace has shown her political leanings, the outspoken 19-year-old has previously spoken of her support of Clinton’s bid for the White House over fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders, and admitted she thinks Republican Trump has no chance of succeeding President Barack Obama as U.S. leader.
“My biggest issue as a young person, male or female, is our educational system. When I turned 18, I decided that I couldn’t justify the expense of college, “she tells Elle.com.
At just 17, Chloe Grace was earning a reported $500,000 a movie. But says she chose to skip college at 18, because of the huge cost of college education. A top-tier U.S. university education can cost $60,000 a year, and a public college will cost half that, according to student support organization College Board.
“I can’t justify spending my own money and throwing it away to go to college just to pay it back for 15 years,” she says.
“It feels really inappropriate, like I’m getting robbed. So I told that to Hillary Clinton. I said, 'Why can’t we make it so when kids turn 18, they want to go to college? It should be free.'”Really? Is this truly what we've come to in America? Or where we want to go?
Must I explain the obscenity in this young woman's remarks? If so, we have not only lost all reverence for the principle of private property in this country, but we have also lost our decency.
The opinions of this young actress might be dismissed as the self-centered ravings of an ignorant Hollywood starlet, but can they be excused? For, if we do excuse them, or if candidate Clinton accepts them or campaigns on them, what does it say about her, about us?
I should not be surprised that people in this country not only talk and think this way, but also want this warped morality to be the rule of the land. We live in an age when what is matters less than what isn't and what must be matters not at all.
If we do not reject this nonsense and embrace our sacred, American principles of life, liberty and property, there will be nothing of substance left of our society but a worthless shell, the awful, horrible refuse of what once was and should have been.
