    Democracy calls into question after Trump election

    1. According to Roger Scruton, a writer and philosopher, "Democracy is championed as a universal good by the West, but we over-estimate its power to guarantee personal and political freedom." Despite being "the best innovator in the world" as claimed by Navarro, America seems to have no talent...

    Labeling Millions of People

    Hillary Clinton said that half of Trump's supporters are deplorable and that they're racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. She had no right to say that. She labeled people who she knows nothing about. She went too far. She should be ashamed of herself for saying such awful things about millions of...

    Not a Tyrant

    I'll be honest. I was very disappointed with the election results. I didn't want Hillary to win the Democrat nomination and I didn't want Donald Trump to win the Republican nomination. I wanted two different people to run for President. But I can tell you about three people who were originally...

    Hillary

    Hillary Clinton can't be trusted because of the series of allegations that she's been facing. If I was facing such allegations, I would be sent to prison but she's getting off scott free. That is sad. Because of these allegations, I would rather have a dog catcher for President. Also, Hillary...

    The Reasons Why I Voted

    I voted for Bernie Sanders on March the 1st for two reasons. 1. I believe that Sanders can be a great President and 2. It took a vote away from Hillary Clinton. I didn't vote for a republican candidate because that wouldn't have taken a vote away from Hillary and it wouldn't have helped...

    I Don't Trust Hillary Clinton

    (This is a poem that I wrote about Hillary.) Because of the allegations that have come out against Hillary Clinton, she's a person who I don't trust. Hillary's supporters don't want me to tell you this but I must. Because of these allegations, I can't and won't trust her to run this country. If...

    Florida Law Would Make It A Crime For Transgender People To Use Public Bathrooms tl;dr Floridian Republicans have proposed a bill that would make it a misdemeanor for a transgender to go to the wrong bathroom (or any sex segregated area). On the surface, this looks like more discrimination...

    Filibuster Vs. tyranny of the mob.

    Filibuster Vs. tyranny of the mob. Filibusters defend the rights of minority parties against mob tyranny. I am not opposed to filibusters’ worthy purposes but they should not stand alone as an unlimited absolute. Protection of minority rights should not require tolerating minorities’ eternally...

    Election coming down to last few days

    I don't think we will know strongly either way until after the votes start coming in on Tuesday and even then it will probably take a while. The battleground states will make or break whoever wins and a lot of them are still up for grabs. A lot of money and time are being spent in states like...
