Vote ABC

Hillary Clinton is the epitome of a corrupt government official, a liar and a thief. She and Bill stole precious antiques including china, statues given by world leaders, infamous paintings and numerous other items too many to mention. Simply google what Bill and Hillary stole from the White House when they left in 2000. Hillary will say absolutely anything to get elected so that the Clinton Foundation can continue to support the millionaire lifestyle they are accustomed to. The actual amount of contributions given to those needy organizations is only 18 percent of the contributions collected. The remainder 82 percent of the contributions are for the expenses and administrative fees for jet-setting around the world in this millionaire status. Look for yourself - 82 percent administrative fees! Simply google Clinton Foundation F990. No more socialists in our White House! The Democrat Party has been highjacked by these socialists who are now in control and two of Obama's top advisors are Iranian including Hillary's advisor Huma Abedin. Why is Iran the new ally of the United States and why is Israel considered our enemy? No more of this political correctness nonsense and no more socialists in our White House! Vote for ABC (Anybody But Clinton) for president. If you are a hardcore Democrat whose party has been seized by these socialists, then I say to you simply hold your nose at the polling booth and do for once what is right. Vote these socialists out of our government and vote for any Republican to get this done and get this country back on the right track.
