• Trump and Women

    (I had the idea to write about Trump and his awful misogyny. I opened my computer and clicked on this blank doc. As I wondered how to begin this post, it struck me that I wrote a similar one a few months back. It’s so depressing and enraging to think that Trump gets worse and worse every single day, and that this man could be our president in just five weeks.)

  • Paving the Way for Hillary

    We all know Hillary belongs on the list of the most powerful women in history, but do you know who those other women are? I’m here to tell you about some of the most powerful women this nation has ever seen, who paved the way for Hillary. Let’s start by going back to the time of the American Revolution.

  • Trump's Taxes

    Sometimes I wish I could attend a town hall or small rally for Trump. Not to support him, of course—so that I could stand up at the end and ask him, “WHY HAVE YOU NOT RELEASED YOUR TAX RETURNS?”

  • What to Look For in the First Debate

    The first presidential debate is on Monday! It will be held at Hofstra University starting at 9:00 PM and will be moderated by Lester Holt. The debate kicks off the last leg of the campaign, and the event has a big impact on the race. If you support Hillary Clinton, or any candidate really, it is essential to watch the debate. Behind the scenes, Hillary has been preparing heavily for the debates, and is reportedly poring over briefing books and policy papers. Meanwhile, Donald Trump has taken a more freestyle approach to preparing for debates, with his most intense prep sessions being Sunday chats with his campaign staff.

  • Health of the Race

    Hey guys, only a couple days away from the first debate and I wanted to talk about a topic that I think is really prominent in the news right now. As you may have heard, our girl HRC came down with pneumonia. Pneumonia is a little sickness that usually only lasts about a week, but we need to look at the big picture. Following her sickness, the response has been really interesting and slightly alarming. I’m going to go through my analysis of three aspects out of this little blip on the radar and how they might be having a bigger impact than we think.

  • Climate Change during Election Season

    Perhaps the most fundamental albeit frequently neglected issues the world faces today are climate change and global warming. There are several steps that are critical for our next president to take to preserve our environment and the health of United States citizens, but unfortunately, climate change is a topic on which both current candidates have dramatically different approaches.

  • Trump's Failed Visit to Mexico

    Yesterday Trump decided to visit the last place you’d expect: Mexico. Surprisingly, he didn’t go to stay at a lavish Trump resort and spend millions on a luxurious vacation—he went to meet with the Mexican president, Enrique Pena Nieto, presumably for no purpose other than to give off a “presidential” air.

  • Hillary, My Heroine

    The year was 2008, and I was eight years old.

    Politics was a grown-up term that I didn’t know much about, other than a few names: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John McCain. Although the real meaning of the election was lost on me, my parents encouraged my brother and me to formulate opinions about the world. However, there was something standing in my way of deciding who to cheer on. Being a young child, I idolized my parents and pretty much went along with whatever they said. This time, though, my mom supported Hillary, and my dad supported Obama. What to do?

  • I Supported Bernie, and Now I Support Hillary

    Like many other people my age, I was a big Bernie Sanders supporter. I agreed with his policies, was inspired by his candidacy, and was disillusioned with a system that I felt was corrupt. Since then, I have put deep reflection and thought into the consequences and the stakes of this election. What is the best way of achieving the bold, progressive change that America needs?

  • Why Hillary Stands for Me

    I’ve noticed that in the press the past couple of weeks a lot of the same things: critique of Hillary’s character, the crazy claims Trump makes, Trump’s many shifts in his campaign, a lack of support from Bernie supporters, people saying they might not vote at all, etc. Throughout all this chaos, I feel like we have strayed from what is really important: what Hillary stands for. The issues Hill prioritizes is a huge part of why I think she is the best candidate not just for our country, but also for me. So here are some examples of things Hillary supports that matter to me.
