  • I Supported Bernie, and Now I Support Hillary

    Like many other people my age, I was a big Bernie Sanders supporter. I agreed with his policies, was inspired by his candidacy, and was disillusioned with a system that I felt was corrupt. Since then, I have put deep reflection and thought into the consequences and the stakes of this election. What is the best way of achieving the bold, progressive change that America needs?

  • Why Hillary Stands for Me

    I’ve noticed that in the press the past couple of weeks a lot of the same things: critique of Hillary’s character, the crazy claims Trump makes, Trump’s many shifts in his campaign, a lack of support from Bernie supporters, people saying they might not vote at all, etc. Throughout all this chaos, I feel like we have strayed from what is really important: what Hillary stands for. The issues Hill prioritizes is a huge part of why I think she is the best candidate not just for our country, but also for me. So here are some examples of things Hillary supports that matter to me.

  • Hillary Is For Everyone!

    In my opinion, Hillary Rodham Clinton is one of the most inspirational people in history. Hillary’s campaign is really making me excited for November, especially given who her competition is! As we can all see, Hillary is the only qualified candidate. As a daughter of two immigrants, Hillary is not only a great choice, but she is our only hope.

  • Election Update

    Following the widely praised Democratic National Convention, Hillary took a large lead in both state and national polls over Donald Trump. Yet three weeks later, her advantage has been holding steady, suggesting her edge is more than just a convention bounce. It would be unwise to become complacent, yet there is no denying this simple truth: HIllary Clinton is vastly more likely to win the presidency than Donald Trump.

  • Voting Isn’t the Only Way to Impact this Election

    The 2016 presidential election is a pretty big deal. It’s possible that this election might be the biggest presidential election of our lives. The stakes are HYUGE (pun intended)! This 2016 election is the most important election since the Civil War because Donald Trump is running for president. Yes, Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for president of the United States of America.

  • Coming Together: Why I’m With Her

    Cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls. ~Hillary Clinton, Victory Speech, June 7, 2016

  • Dear Bernie Supporters: Hillary vs. Trump is NOT a Lose-Lose

    As an avid Hillary supporter, I have had several discussions with friends about the upcoming presidential election. When I talk about the election with Bernie supporters, there is one statement that often comes up: Clinton versus Trump is a lose-lose situation for our country. Obviously, I find this a completely false statement which I would like to debunk.

  • Split Victories, but Hill Still in Commanding Lead

    Last night, the states of Kentucky and Oregon held their primaries. Hillary won Kentucky and Bernie took Oregon, but the math remains. Going into the night, Bernie needed 63%-37% wins in every state to overtake Hillary, but got that margin in neither contest. Now, he needs approximately 68%-32% wins in every remaining state, including places where Hillary is favored like California and Oregon. With that said, let’s take a closer look at the primaries last night:

  • Different, Not Wrong

    Hey guys! Today I want to discuss the right way to respectfully disagree with one another, something I feel is super relevant in this election. The great thing about our country and the election process is the principle that all of our ideas matter. Many people might not share our own perspectives on issues such as marriage equality, healthcare systems, etc. Different perspectives, and different ways of handling these political disagreements, are prevalent in this election and even in our own conversations with friends.
