Why Should I Vote for Hillary: Hillary Supporters on Facebook

I was thinking about how much I value the candidate I support. I thought about how if I got the chance to tell people to vote for a certain candidate running I would and would also send bumper stickers, stickers, pins, literature, and a T-shirt to the new supporter immediately.

The show that Bill Maher recently did where he had a segment called “Caucus Me!” got me thinking, “What if I did this to supporters of other candidates?”

I sought out officers of all the major Facebook groups for Hillary, Barack, and John.

This is what Hillary supporters had to say. I’ll post the conversations with other young political minds unedited and then give comments after each of them. Hope you learn something about the youth of America. If anything, you will learn, we care but just may need some direction in order to care about what really matters in America.


I would like to know why I should vote for Hillary.

Hillary has made a career out of advocating for women, children and families. And yes, along the way she has ruffled a lot of feathers. She has been called a communist, a calculating b*tch, and worse. Polarization and calculation have become bad words. They are not. FDR, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, even Thomas Jefferson were very polarizing and calculating individuals. They, like Hillary accomplished much for this country.

Hillary has drastically increased the adoption rate in this country, she has created an office within the Department of Justice dedicated to investigating violence against women, she was largely responsible for the original SCHIP legislation which now covers almost 7,000,000 children, and she has long represented America abroad and done us proud. She has visited over 80 countries and hosted numerous international conferences at home. She stood up for women's rights in Beijing and founded Vital Voices an organization that has helped to implement the Good Friday Peace Accords as well as give a voice to previously voiceless women in Taliban Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

To use the buzzword change for a moment, Hillary has long been a voice for change. I believe there is value in looking at what a candidate has accomplished and comparing that to what they promise. Hillary promised Universal Health Care, she promises a better life for low-income families, and children in this country, and she promises an improved America, one that has better relations with the world around it.

Hillary has already done all these things with gusto and will continue to do them if elected.

So you are voting Hillary because she supports women's rights and "universal health care" and because she has polarized people yet been extremely successful?
