Oh boy. I highly recommend everyone does their research on Hillary Clinton. Don’t give her your vote just because she is a woman. Consider what she has done and what she will do for the United States. She shouldn’t be voted president just because we finally want a woman in the white house. Make sure you are aware of what she stands for and what she has been willing to do in the past. We have placed her on a pedestal as pro-feminism, pro-lgbt, pro-progress, but people need to understand that this is how politics work. As millennials, we are changing and becoming more open minded. We are the target group that need to be encouraged to vote for her. Now I am not saying to not vote for her, and instead vote for a republican who will destroy any progress made. But be wary of who you are choosing to vote for.

hillary clinton won a plea bargain while defending a child rapist who she knew to be guilty. part of her defense was that the 12 year old girl “sought older men” and was “emotionally unstable”. she was recorded laughing & making jokes about it, and when the tapes surfaced to the media years later, she said she was just doing what she had to do to the best of her ability.

All issues of wealth, power, and violence are also women’s and LGBT rights issues. For instance, neoliberal economic policies of austerity and privatization disproportionately hurt women and LGBT individuals, who are often the lowest paid and the first workers to be fired, the most likely to bear the burdens of family maintenance, and the most affected by the involuntary migration, domestic violence, homelessness, and mental illness that are intensified by poverty.
Clinton’s record on such issues is hardly encouraging. Her decades of service on corporate boards and in major policy roles as first lady, senator, and secretary of state give a clear indication of where she stands.
