Speakout

Vote is decided

I am calling about the speakout article, "I can trump you." I agree with this person 100 percent about Benghazi and the emails of Hillary. In addition, I have come across a direct quote of Hillary's from a reliable source in which she says, "We are going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." Gee whiz! What is the difference between Hillary and Sanders? Who knows? But this helped decide my vote.
