What I Love About Hillary...

I love that she listens to the issues that we the voters care about and she responds. Her agenda is our agenda.

People criticize her for having focus groups and meeting with small groups and say she is pandering. I think those folks are wrong. Hillary actually listens and she is forming her campaign platform around the issues most important to us as Americans.

Hillary's concerns regarding the issues reflect my own concerns.

I care about Women's rights.
I care about systemic racism in America.
I care about the attacks on Planned Parenthood.
I care about Gun violence in America.
I care about the path to citizenship for immigrants.
I care that college needs to be made more affordable.
I care about escalating prescription drug prices.
I care about voting rights.

These are just a few of the issues I care about and I think Hillary is the one candidate from either party to best be able to address these issues and many more. I think she is the best person we can count on to make progress in achieving what America needs.

7. Hey, I care about those too.

And a whole bunch of others that are actually more important to me.

Top of the list? An end of bought and paid for, corporate enablers in high office.

Next? No more warmongering presidents.

Next? No presidents that take million$ in "campaign contributions" from "super pacs."

The above aren't negotiable. Period.

18. Sorry, not out to trash anyone

I just state the facts. If Bernie don't make it, she will get my full vote. I don't disagree with any of the originators post. WE cannot afford to allow the GOP to win anything.

Can you imagine Trump behind the nuke process?

12. Speaking for myself only,

I don't really fault Hillary on her domestic agenda, which is generally positive, but I do take issue with her hawkishness internationally and her close ties to Wall Street, which is why I support Sanders. Each of us has our priorities.

13. Do you care about the economic side of this?


About welfare reform?
About Glass-Steagall and our savings accounts?
About keeping Social Security strong or even expanding it?
About keeping our jobs in this country?
About stopping the privatization of our schools and Post Office?

There are a lot of things besides the ones you list that are important to a lot of us.
