The Factors You Should Be Considering This Election Season

Which candidate is a better equipped to be our leader?

This presidential election has everyone feeling all sorts of ways. I'm sure there are many words we can all use to describe the candidates, especially coming from our younger generation. Although, have you ever asked yourself which candidate is the lesser evil? Regardless of your answer, let's begin.

Experience in Politics

Hillary Clinton: About 48 years

She has been the First Lady of the United States, a senator in New York, and the United States Secretary of State. #girlpower

Donald Trump: 1 year & 4 months

Trump has not provided his experience in politics. But the man is confident on his ideas and proposals. He announced he was running for president on June 16, 2015. So yeah, up until now, about a year and a half. He also has been a businessman for about 45 years. Trump also has 19 years of experience with beauty pageants and about seventy years harassing women. #spraytanpower

What does the President think of them?


"...I know how hard this job can be. That’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it. In fact, I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office. She’s got the courage, the compassion, and the heart to get the job done."


"And then there’s Donald Trump. He’s not really a plans guy. Not really a facts guy either. He calls himself a business guy, which is true, but I have to say, I know plenty of businessmen and women who’ve achieved success without leaving a trail of lawsuits, and unpaid workers and people feeling like they got cheated."

Now I know what you anti-Hillary's are thinking, what about her email scandal? Or she's a liar! She stole Bernie's candidacy! And probably many other vulgar things I can't discuss because I have to keep it PG.

First of all, when Hillary lost against Obama back in 2008, she still supported him. As democrats, we have to fight for the middle class together. We have to fight for equality. We have to fight for the majority, not the minority. The United States needs a leader who will make progressive changes. All you new voters, this is our future! Your vote matters. Who cares what Facebook tells you? Look at the real facts. I can assure you, Donald is an excellent example of everything our president shouldn't be. Hillary has made mistakes, but bigger mistakes will be made if we let Donald become president. Jill Stein and Gary Johnson are great candidates as well, but if they were so great, why weren't they endorsed by their rivals and the President? Bernie Sanders created a movement amongst the youth, a movement that affected me. That movement taught me to fight for my voice to be heard. That movement taught me that I want change, for the middle class, illegal immigrants, LGBT members, children and so much more. Because of the change, I want to see in our great country, I'm with her.

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
