Another reason not to vote for Hillary

The following Letter to the Editor appeared in the Union Leader.

Another reason not to vote for Hillary
To the Editors: As if we didn't have enough reason not to support Hillary Clinton, the New Hampshire chapter of the National Education Association recently gave her its endorsement. This largest union in America doesn't endorse candidates based on their service to the public.

The NEA continually strives to force every taxpayer to send as much money as possible into their hands through frivolous lawsuits and legislative edicts. To this end, the NEA supports candidates committed to using the power of government to suit their financial, not educational goals.

From its perspective, the NEA chose wisely, for all evidence suggests Hillary Clinton would be delighted to send our money to the NEA in exchange for political influence. Its the true reason she earned their endorsement, and the reason she must not have the public's endorsement in January.

Whether you're a Democrat, Republican or independent, one thing is clear. Hillary Clinton has neither the integrity nor competence to serve as President. Hillary Clinton stands for Hillary Clinton, nothing more.
