On November 8th, millions of Americans will head to the polls to participate in one of the most consequential elections of the past decades. The outcome of this election will not only determine the future of the United States, but also will have an effect on the rest of the world.

The choice is between the two major party candidates, the Republican or the Democratic candidates, one of which will become the 45th president of the United States and govern for the next four years.

Throughout this long presidential campaign, the Republican candidate Donald Trump with his vague economic, social and political plans, divisive and racially toned rhetoric, his calls to deport millions of refugees, his treatment of women, un-presidential behavior, his numerous bankruptcies, his shady business dealings and many more character flaws, has come to prove that he is unqualified to become the leader of this country.

In addition, considering his business dealings in Turkey and Azerbaijan, we deem Donald Trump to be an unacceptable choice.

The Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton has over thirty years of experience in the political arena, as a first lady, senator and secretary of state. She has shown to be a balanced politician. She has adopted the Democratic Party’s platform based on social justice and the protection of the working people and the middle class. Hillary Clinton has fought for progressive ideals throughout her career.

Based on all these and other factors, the Social Democratic Hunchakian Party endorses the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton

In our endorsement letter addressed to Mrs. Clinton, we expressed our hope that on the issue of the Armenian Genocide, she reverts to the position she held as a Senator.

We urged her to support the right of self-determination for the people of Nagorno-Karabakh, and the resolution of the Karabakh conflict through peaceful means.

We also asked her, as President, to increase cooperation between the United States and the Republic of Armenia, increase financial and other forms of aid aimed to benefit the people of Armenia and democratic institutions.

Thus, we call upon the Armenian American community to participate in the upcoming elections, in large numbers, and to vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, as the next president of the United States.

  1. It’s amazing that in this day in age, Armenians, even the supposedly “educated” ones in the group, still believe that their vote counts when it comes to serious political matters. Wake up folks, US politicians DO NOT make political policy. This is especially true of foreign policy. The nation’s special interest groups (AIPAC, Pentagon, military industrial complex, big pharma, mega corporations, Wall Street, etc.) and think tanks (Heritage Foundation, CFR, Chatham House, Jamestown Foundation, etc.) are the ones tasked with formulating/crafting political policy. For their part, similar to what salesmen do, US officials are tasked with selling political policies to the sheeple. The American people’s gross lack of understand of how the political system works in the American empire is actually the strength of the American political system.
