During the primary election I voted for Bernie Sanders. I, like many other Millennials, grew up much differently than the generations before us. Growing up with the internet at our fingertips and seeing plastic politicians represent our county caused us to swoon over a presidential candidate with a proven 40 year track record of being an all-around “good guy.” It’s no secret that most Millennials are trapped by student debt, so the promise of reforming Wall Street and holding big banks accountable was music to our ears. Photos of Bernie as a young activist during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s kept young voters flocking to him, even a small finch landed on his podium in approval. Bernie had become a symbol of hope and change that most of us predicted was too good to be true.

Once Hillary Clinton won the primary election, I decided to stick with the Democratic Party, and do my part on electing a candidate that maintains a good majority of my own values. To start, Hillary Clinton is experienced as First Lady, Senator of New York, and as Secretary of State. I strongly stand by her policy on Women’s Rights, including a woman’s reproductive rights. Her strong commitment to Civil Liberties and LGBTQ Rights, including equality under the law to every American regardless of race, sexual orientation, or gender is something that our country cannot afford to lose. Clinton’s policy on immigration will give hard-working individuals who are seeking a path to citizenship fair opportunity at the American Dream. For me, Clinton is the right choice because she seems to be in touch with the reality of our country’s biggest flaws, such as crippling debt, national security, our gun epidemic, and climate change. On November 8th, I will be voting for Hillary Clinton.

Throughout the past few months many CCP students have expressed their disinterest in voting this election. Americans have been overloaded with shocking facts along with rumors that hold little credibility throughout this feverish election. The 2016 presidential elections have been like none of its predecessors. This era of moderate, politically correct candidates has seemed to have passed somewhere between “locker room talk” and WikiLeaks.

The frustration of not feeling completely represented by the two major candidates is something that must be dealt with by carefully examining what each candidate has to offer. What values are most important to you personally? Civil liberties, economic stability, national security, environmental awareness, high-quality education? There is not one person who stands neutral on every one of these aspects. The entire world has kept a close eye on our spectacle of an election, causing American voters wishing to bury their heads in the sand. As much as so many of us would like to avoid an election we are not connected to, the truth is that we will all be impacted by the country’s next president. Our nation is not a reality TV show that can be turned off.

Voting is the backbone of a democracy; a right that numerous individuals in decades past have devoted their lives to ensure. Every vote really does count, especially in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania could be the deciding factor for this election. In past elections, Philly has stayed apart from rural and small town Pennsylvania, which tends to lean more Republican. With the Democratic National Convention being held in Philly this past August, it’s clear to see that the Democratic Party is counting on Philadelphians to go out and vote. It’s up to us to decide who will mend our impoverished cities, give our children opportunities we didn’t have, and most importantly lead our country with dignity towards a brighter future.

    The Corruption, Lies and Prostitution Of Hillary Clinton

    https://1drv.ms/v/s!ArsSr-P0CcWcgcErlakxe9ob-2KlkQ HILLARY CLINTONS LIES AND HYPOCRISY
    What can we say about this picture? Here is Hillary Clinton who loves little pup seals. She supports animal-rights of all sorts. Such as pup seals, the bald eagle and other animals. However, in her great wisdom and self justice, she cannot support the unborn baby. I would submit if all the unborn babies had political voice, political power, and could vote, she would find a way to include them. But as it is, they are easy to betray they put up no fight and she gains the vote of those women that find certain expediency in the death and the killing of the unborn. These types of people will all always say that the female has a right to kill as she sees fit. After all, the baby might be poor, the baby might be sick or the baby may be unwanted. Yet, after a lifetime I can tell you with many, many experiences of people born very sick, with heart conditions and such, with people born with polio, never once have I heard one of them say they did not want to live. So in the doing of killing the unborn there is absolutely no substantiation that killing is what a child, and infant would ever assume as an answer to whether they wanted to live. Hillary, has in the past supported the most barbaric legislation in the form of partial birth abortion. The idea itself is so appalling that it pales other atrocities done by the Gestapo and other evil. Yet, this twisted soul of Hillary supports the death of the innocent. She will not aid or protect. Kind of like Pontius Pilate would not aid or protect the innocence of Christ. She betrays those she can for her benefit. For example. The servicemen at Benghazi, the coal miners of Virginia or anyone else standing in her way, and her obsession for power is easily crushed.
    She has been the absolute worse Secretary of State I know of. I could mention the failed policies of Libya, Iraq or Afghanistan. The absolute worse unbelievable stupid incompetent decision of all time lies in her negotiating with Iran. The idea is so stupid I have trouble even thinking about it. A sworn enemy of the United States for any reason receiving money from the United States, is nothing less than aiding and abetting the enemy. The idea that Iran can refine or have in any capacity heavy water and make excuses is total incompetence. The idea that Iran can tell Hillary or her protégés that Iran is gathering the heavy water for better enemas is answered by the Obama administration and Hillary shaking their head yes and saying we all love better enemas. Where, oh where is John Bolton. Please, John Bolton come and negotiates for us. We have total incompetence in Hillary and this administration towards national security.
    However, Hillary will take some money from Islamic Countries and prostitute her belief in standing up for women. Go to http://www.islam.info.tm
