I just couldn't understand why you were making so much sense. I was fighting it. I've been told that you were Republican Light (like) from the right wing and male chauvinists. I was supposed to hate you. Being fed all these stories and claims. Years of sewing the seeds to form prejudged version of the Hillary they wanted to portray you as. But really, not who you are.
But then I actually started paying attention, listening, checking. That was my turn. I broke free from their control and actually started thinking and searching for myself. You know, the control freaks, corporatists and bigots worst nightmare. The illusions were broke.
No, Hillary couldn't be the one candidate with the best and true Universal Health Care. I was told she was the one in bed with the Corporations. That she wouldn't offer a Universal Health Care, to protect the insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies. But she is. A plan that will control costs and bring health care costs down. Then I find that the reason Republicans dislike Hillary, according to Darryl Issa on his appearance on Real Time, that she dared tried to pass Universal Health Care. You know, that thing most people in our country believe, as Hillary does, that it is a moral right. Surely at least Democratic politicians should be favoring the same principle, that Health Care is a right. But then another Democratic candidate is actually attacking Hillary with the same attacks Republicans made for being against Universal Health Care. This can't be right. That's not what we were told.
Hillary is supposed to not be for the people and would continue Corporate rule. She is supposed to pass legislation in favor of the Corporate donors instead of the people. So why is it when I check, she indeed did oppose the Cheney Special Interest incentive loaded Energy Bill in 2005, but the new guy didn't? She was the first to talk about closing Corporate loopholes and to talk about changing our trade laws to be Fair Trade with Labor and environmental policies. And was always opposed to FREE trade. And Hillary was the one who voted in favor of Prohibiting weakening of any law that safeguarded from unfair Trade Practicies.
Now I also find out that Hillary can receive contributions from donors, but that doesn't mean her vote is against the people. She actually still voted to Cap interest rates to protect citizens from being gouged by Lenders.
OK. This was all just so illuminating. Hillary has been honest and puts her words where her actions are.
But wait. We're supposed to now believe that Hillary doesn't care about the voters. That she doesn't believe in everyone participating in our electoral process. That somehow she thought that votes were to be taken for granted or just come to her without even campaigning. But even Hillary honored the DNC's wish to not campaign in Florida before the their Primary, because Florida scheduled their Primary before they were supposed to, wasn't it Hillary who waited for the polls close and go down there to just say thank you, you still matter to me?
"New York Sen. Hillary Clinton thanked Florida voters for their support. "I could not come here to ask in person for your votes, but I am here to thank you for your votes today,"Clinton told a cheering audience "
Isn't Hillary cris crossing the country (where legal) to reach out to voters, so they can hear what she will do for them and the country as President, regardless that it may not be for getting votes? This week going from Pennsylvania, to Indiana and West Virginia, with a stop in Michigan, continuously talking about her "Solutions for America", to move us forward. Real issues that are supported by her lifetime of work.
Thank you Hillary, you had me with your Solutions.
