Groups Endorsing Hillary Clinton

During the Democratic primary season, I will be supporting Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nominee for president. I think both Hillary and Bernie are good candidates, and both are far better than the Republican nominee, Donald Trump. Hillary is more moderate than Bernie, but I think she can pushed farther to the left if social movements are successful in pushing the political center farther left. I support Hillary because of her toughness, and her realistic view of the political obstacles and the conservative opposition that any Democratic president will face if elected. Ever since the Republicans gained the majorities in the House of Representatives in 2010, I’ve seen how they obstructed President Obama’s initiatives on immigration reform, gun control, climate change, the minimum wage, stopping the deportation of certain illegal immigrants, and infrastructure spending. Because of gerrymandering, I do not think the Republicans will lose control of the House, even if Donald Trump loses badly in the general elections. Both a President Hillary or a President Bernie will have problems with an obstructionist House. I want a Democratic President who is a tough political strategist who can fight the Republican House and pass some meaningful legislation.

About angelolopez

I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life. Since I was a child I’ve drawn on any scrap of paper I could get a hold of. When I went to San Jose State University, I became more exposed to the works of the great fine artists and illustrators. My college paintings were heavily influenced by the humorous illustrations of Peter De Seve, an illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. I also fell under the spell of the great muralists of the 1930s, especially Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. I graduated with a degree in Illustration. Since my time in college, my goal has been to be a successful children’s book illustrator. I’ve illustrated 3 books: Two Moms the Zark and Me by Johnny Valentine in 1993; Night Travelers by Sue Hill in 1994; and Cherubic Children’s New Classic Story Book Volume 2 for Cherubic Press in 1998. I’ve painted murals for Lester Shields Elementary School in San Jose, the Berryessa branch of the San Jose Public Library, and Grace Community Church in Los Altos. I’ve had a few illustrations published in South Bay Accent Magazine and I will have an illustration published in the January/February issue of Tikkun magazine.

  1. I’m with you, Angelo. I’ve wanted to vote for her for years. Now I have the chance. Of course, I live in Kansas, so my vote won’t count. However, I think a Hillary Clinton presidency will be excellent for the country.
