  • I must disagree with the points made in this article, democracy is a logical system that puts the power in the hands of the people, and arguing that what the majority wants can be “Wrong” on such an objective level is just factually inaccurate. Now, I am actually a hardcore liberal, who took the Trump victory extremely hard but you mentioned in…Read More

    Dear Farah :
    I am upset by your post, “Media To A Muslim,” because I hate that we live in a country where you have to say, “Hey, maybe everyone in this entire religion doesn’t want to kill you” and that we have a president who probably believes this. This whole idea that people are evil because they believe in a certain God (Which is the same…Read More

    • Dear Andrew:

      I am amazed about your post, “Healthcare Hypocrisy,” because you explained deeply how you felt about Republicans and their action. Not only did you clearly state your opinion, you used direct quotes the people said to support your ideas. This made it more and more convincing to the reader.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “You know, I have to rely on my staff, and I could probably tell you that I read every word, and I wouldn’t be telling you the truth, nor would any other member”. I think this is ridiculous because something that could affect the whole country in the present and future isn’t being given 100% attention.

      Another sentence that I liked was: “Oddly enough, the host of a satirical late night show, Late night with Seth Meyers, who pointed out this hypocrisy on his segment “A Closer Look” got a response from Paul Ryan after jokingly putting clips of Ryan criticizing democrats next to clips of republicans doing the thing Ryan was criticizing”. This stood out for me because it showed how even big republicans like Paul Ryan cared when they were criticized on a TV show, not even officially one discussing politics.

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time when I was watching the news the commentators on CNN were discussing Obamacare. I constantly heard that the republicans wanted to get it “repealed and replaced”. Afterward i heard that despite this they didn’t even have a plan, just an ida which was quite funny. They sounded so sure about actually executing their non-existent plan.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you make the subject of politics something that should be talked about more amongst kids. You bring up lots of key issues that should resignate to many Americans and spreads awareness.

  • Dear Kyra
    I am happy about your post “did a day without immigrants actually have an impact” because in a time where we have a President who is worryingly nationalistic and seems to only care about a small portion of the world’s, and america’s population, we need a day like this that highlights the importance of the people is monumental. The p…Read More

    Dear Andres

    I am upset by your post “Police Brutality,” not because your writing aggravates me, but because I hate that we live in a country where this is even a problem. I believe strongly that there needs to be trust in law enforcement, but the way law is enforced in this country leads to fear of the police, which is disgusting, we need to tru…Read More
