I would like to preface this article with the following statement: I am not pro-Trump. Even so, this does not take away from the fact that Hillary Clinton is also a terrible candidate:

  1. She’s a compulsive liar.

When it comes to telling lies, Mrs. Clinton has quite the résumé. For example, when the bodies of the four Americans killed in Benghazi were being unloaded at Andrews Air Force Base in 2012, Clinton blamed the attacks on an “awful internet video that we [the American people] had nothing to do with.” Never you mind that in a private email chain to her daughter the night of the attacks, Hillary said that “[t]wo of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like group,” and made no mention of a video.

  1. She has put national security at risk.

It should be clear that when FBI director James Comey said, “We found work-related emails, thousands, that were not returned,” and “[o]ur investigation found that there was classified information [on her server],” Mrs. Clinton violated the U.S. Code. It is therefore likely that she has committed a felony. Even if this doesn’t convince you, 2,000 of the 33,000 deleted work related emails were classified, according the the FBI.

  1. Her record of consistency is abysmal.

Mrs. Clinton is remarkably inconsistent when it comes to policies and views on social issues. Clinton has an odd tendency to fit her values to whatever the public opinion is. For example, Hillary stood in front of Congress in 2004 and declared, “Marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman.” Compare that to 2013 when she said on Human Rights Campaign’s YouTube channel, “I support [gay marriage] personally and as a matter of public policy and law.”

How will America choose between an orange-faced authoritarian and a hypocritical liar diagnosed with pneumonia? Fear not, because America has made it through bad times before, like the Great Depression or the Vietnam War. So keep your chin up, stay confident and always, always question authority.
