I would like to officially endorse Senator Elizabeth Warren as the next President of the United States of America. This decision wasn't easy, especially with the candidates running in the Democratic Party. Her story, and her values in what she is fighting for got to my heart the most, because her values are what I envision a liberal Democrat should be.
Senator Warren even has a similar political history as mine, coming originally from a conservative background and seeing truth that the conservative movement is not what it claims to be. And learning what it means to be a Liberal Democrat fighting for rights of the oppressed, the bullied, the poor and mistreated. Fighting for basic human rights which should be an American right as a whole. We've both realized the GOP does not do that for the American people. Her mission, as clear as day, is exactly what that is. Fighting for the rights for the people. Her history as a Senator is exemplary of that. She's put together bills on a variety of issues, particularly those of medical and education, which seem to be her top priorities. She has worked well in bipartisan efforts, which is crucial because the President represents all Americans. She fights for human rights, which includes the rights of women and immigrants. Every issue a Democrat values she fights for it. And is a well-respected leader that fights for people including Veterans and Military members. She has earned my vote and support.
My last topic I feel is an important one. Regardless of what Senator Warren decides to do, she will have my full support, but I strongly feel that not going on Fox News is a mistake. Few reasons, one, she doesn't know who she may inspire for votes or open eyes to the truth of our country. Majority of Americans are aware that most of the hosts on Fox News are propagandists and will do their best to distort Warren's policies for their agenda, but it’s about the people, about the voter knowing that their opinions matter. I think if she goes on they will see that she does care about what they have to say about our country. If she does go on Fox, hold the pundits and propagandists accountable for their libels. I know she can handle criticism which she has been handling it well from Trump and his base, and we know she will not cry on Twitter when she is criticized like how Trump handles criticism.
Her leadership is truly valuable for our country, and with her history of bipartisan effort I feel that's what our divided country needs, so we can be united, decent and working together regardless of political affiliation. Where facts do care about feelings and we have consideration of others. I am ready for Warren to be the next President of the United States of America.
