Clinton for president

Posted on October 25, 2016
Donald Trump.
The man who mocked a disabled reporter. The man who declines to disavow racists. The man who targeted immigrants as “rapists” and “murderers.” The man who boastfully said that he sexually assaults women. The man who marveled on television about his daughter Ivanka’s “very nice figure” and mused, “I’ve said that if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps, I would be dating her.”
If president, Trump will tragically turn back the clock on what this country has expensed innumerable lives and fought for: abolishment of slavery, women’s suffrage, racial equality.
As a nation based on freedom for all, we can’t let what he stands for win.
That is why Hillary Clinton should become the next President of the United States.
Clinton is a woman who dedicated eight years in the U.S. Senate on the Armed Service Committee, served on other committees on the budget, the environment, transportation, health, workplace safety, pensions, and children, families and the aging. A woman who was honored as “a tireless voice for children” by the nation’s leading child advocacy organization. A woman who was called by GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham “one of the most effective secretary of states, greatest ambassadors for the American people that I have known in my lifetime” in May 2012. A woman who was named by Time magazine one of the 25 most powerful women of the past century.
This is a woman who is vital to the United States to further the progressive issues we as a nation have long valued and voiced for.
Unlike Trump whose father gave him a “small loan” of $1 million, Clinton grew up in a middle class family experiencing the financial challenges associated with a modest lifestyle.
A person who views $1 million as a “small loan” and calls poor people “morons” is not suited to be in the position of privilege in the oval office.
In terms of foreign policies, Clinton has traveled to 112 countries, attended 306 diplomatic meetings, and spent the equivalent of 87 full days on airplanes.
If president, she may be the most qualified president in a generation. There are very few people who have run for president who are as cultivated about the aspects of foreign and domestic policy as she is.
Moreover, she perceives women’s rights and human rights as fundamental for U.S. security interests. She understands that our national security needs to be more than military strength.
She was one of the first presidential candidates to speak about race and the issues regarding the Black Lives Matter movement after the church shootings in South Carolina. Likewise, she supports Latinos’ and other immigrants’ path to citizenship. She believes that women’s rights are human rights, that global warming is real, that affordable health care isn’t optional, and that the minimum wage needs to be a livable wage.
Vote for Clinton because she will strengthen our economy and democracy.
Vote for Clinton because she has a great understanding of our nation and of our world.
Vote for Clinton because she will protect our rights, even Trump’s.
