Hillary has shown she’s ready, willing and able to lead

To the Daily Sun,

There are so many reasons why I support Hillary for president that I have frankly found it challenging to put my thoughts down on paper. But here goes.

It's really simple. Hillary is the best candidate. She is the most qualified person to serve as our next president. Hillary is ready from day one to serve as our next commander in chief. Her command of foreign policy, her ability to work across the aisle and get things done, her history of advocacy for children and families and average Americans are all without parallel.

We live in challenging times. We need a leader who can bring us together as a people to move our country forward. We need someone who is going to fight for working people, for the middle class, for our college students, and for our veterans. Hillary has vowed to take on the special interests, to fight for campaign finance reform, and to hold Wall Street and the pharmaceutical companies accountable.

Hillary will work on creating jobs, and grow the economy.

Throughout her career, Hillary has demonstrated that she is ready, willing and able to work with people of all political stripes, and for meaningful change and progress.

And, yes, it's high time we elected a woman president.

So, it's our time to vote. I am asking for the sake of our country, our state, our communities and our families to join me and thousands of other Granite Staters and vote for Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 9.

Three-ring election circus shows America is on the decline

To the Daily Sun,

Nothing reveals the depths of America's depression than recognizing the front-runner for president in the Democratic party in New Hampshire is a devout socialist. After seven years of Obama's failure to lift the nation's prosperity, an envy-promoting socialist, a snake-oil-selling, bullying, celebrity billionaire, and a certified, flip-flopping, full-time liar, under investigation by the FBI, married to one of the most celebrated womanizers of all time, are now leading the pack. The world is having one belly laugh watching our "three stooges" for president marathon. Obama lowered the stature of America in the eyes of the world. These people will do the same.

What's the difference between a socialist and a Democrat? Today, nothing. A metamorphosis has happened in the Democratic Party. Since its founding, Democrats did all they could to keep plenty of daylight between themselves and the word socialist. Socialist was seen as a poison word, most often identified with the ruinous economic failure of the Soviet Union and other countries. Democrats have turned on a dime, embracing devout socialist Bernie Sanders whose candidacy wraps itself in the thinking of German intellect, Karl Marx.

The implications of this change are monumental. Especially as it relates to past voting allegiances. Democrats are betting they can win elections with the ever growing "underclass" made up primarily of blacks, Hispanics and other fragments who self identify as left out. The Democrats are putting minorities at the front of their bus, pushing the majority, "working class," which is predominantly white families to the back. It's political racism in reverse. For the last century the "working class" has formed the backbone of the Democratic Party. Not anymore! The candidacy of Bernie Sanders vaporizes that history in an instant.

In fact, Donald Trump's stunning success has one source: Democrats' new socialism paradigm. Trump's supporters are almost all working-class citizens who lean conservative in the Democratic Party. They now see their best interests with a Republican, not a socialist Democrat where the underclass will realize almost all the gains paid for out of the hides of the middle-class, white, working family. It can not be any other way. Tax collection follows a bell curve. For everyone one rich, there are 10,000 in the middle paying taxes that in total dwarf what the rich pay.

The unhappy conservative Democrat and the unhappy liberal leaning republican have joined to create a huge voting block for Trump. Voters totally disenchanted, disgusted with Democrats, President Obama and everything Washington, D.C., stand for. The current three ring election circus is yet another reality check America's best days are indeed behind it.
