Hillary Clinton for president

In the upcoming presidential election, there is one professional, well qualified candidate who is truly fit to be president of the United States of America. Hillary Clinton deserves voters’ support this November, and we at The Olympian endorse Clinton for the following reasons.

Clinton has dedicated her life and career to improving the lives of her fellow Americans. For example, Clinton was the First Lady during her husband Bill Clinton’s two terms as president from 1993 until the end of his second term in 2001. In 2001, Clinton became the first female senator in the state of New York, and was re-elected in 2006, before her first presidential campaign in 2008. After Obama won the election, Clinton became Secretary of State under the Obama administration.

Clinton is running as the Democratic Party’s nominee. Here at The Olympian, we found that many of the Democratic Party’s policies and values closely reflect our own. Democrats are pro-choice, they believe that every woman is entitled to making her own decisions about her own body. They believe in a strong public school system, and believe that higher education should be made more affordable and available to lower and working class families. They believe that we need gun control, carbon dioxide emission limits, and affordable health care for all.

Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s nominee, lies frequently and has built a campaign on promises he knows he can’t and won’t keep. He is unprofessional and inexperienced in politics and is an alleged sexual predator. He is extremely unqualified to take on such a role as president of the most powerful nations in the world.

Although we do not support and agree with their choice in nominee or many of their policies, some of the things we find attractive about the Republican Party are their ideas to provide education and prepare prisoners for re-entry into the world once they are finished serving their sentence, and their commitment to rebuilding our military into the strongest on Earth.

While we found that we agree with some of the Republican Party’s beliefs, we continue to support Clinton in this race.  We believe she is well qualified, professional and well-equipped to become the 45th president of the United States. We’re with her.
