Hillary Deserves Better

Did you ever stop to wonder why so many voters have a negative impression of Hillary Clinton? Could it be because the GOP, knowing she would be the next Democratic nominee, spent eight years trying to convince people she is untrustworthy, incompetent or worse? Sadly, instead of focusing on governing this nation, a GOP controlled Congress wasted millions of taxpayer dollars "investigating" her, aided by right-wing political pundits who never stopped attacking her in the most unfair, personal and cruel manner. As a result, many people now accept statements like "Hillary is a crook", or "devious", or "untrustworthy" as if they were truths instead of GOP political propaganda unsupported in fact.

The truth is Hillary Clinton is a woman who has dedicated her life to serving this country and is entitled to be treated with respect. She has never been accused of violating her marriage vows or being anything other than a loving mother to her daughter. She is intelligent, well educated and possesses a wealth of experience ensuring she will make an exceptional President. She is also an incredibly strong person to take all the crap thrown at her and keep on going. The "crooked Hillary" hype being accepted by so many proves that propaganda works.

If you say something often and loud enough, people will start to believe it whether it is true or not.  Which, by the way, has been the GOP's modus operandi for decades.
