Author: Luiza Cavalcante (Leftist) Before Judie Whitmer, a democratic socialist who won her election a few weeks ago to become chair of the Nevada Democratic Party could celebrate, she received an email from the party’s executive director. The message got straight to the point: the director would be quitting. So was every single other employee. And so were all the consultants. On March 8th, a … Continue reading Democratic Socialism Could be One of 2021’s Biggest Winners
(Left Leaning Contributor) We are on a collision course with China. With Chinese leader Xi Jinping telling soldiers to “prepare for war” and ordering bomber planes to infringe on Taiwan’s airspace, it is obvious that China is preparing to greatly expand its influence and territory in the coming years. These aspirational goals have already led to the suppression of democracy in Hong Kong, the imprisonment … Continue reading Addressing The Communist Party of China as an Asian American
Author: Alex Munguia (Conservative) One of the biggest conservative goals for America as a nation is the promotion of the nuclear family. Within recent decades we have seen decreases in the number of people having children, and this could have harmful effects on our society for decades to come. To combat this, moderate republican senator Mitt Romney of Utah has proposed his new Family Security … Continue reading The Romney Family Plan, Have You Taken a Look?
Millennials’ older-sibling-like custody over Gen-Z is eerily similar (though less mean-spirited) to baby boomer’s charge of millennials as their avocado toast munching, diamond market destroying, adult-children. What keeps this dynamic of generations alive is how they interdependently function as currency in an increasingly tedious social climate and characteristically unstable economy. This has made the kids of today, a generation of people born from the mid … Continue reading The Kids Aren’t Alright: Gen Z’s Forced Role as Both 2020’s Scapegoats and Saviors
Author: Luiza Calvacante (Leftist) Seven months ago on a chilly Sunday in late April, Washington’s State Capitol building was swarming with Right-Wing protestors demonstrating anti-lockdown sentiments. The protest brought together fiscal conservatives and civil libertarians in a flurry of star-spangled paraphernalia, brazen, maskless faces, and more than a few picket signs reading, “Give me liberty or give me death.” Though seeming all too out of … Continue reading How We Internalized Capitalism: A Look Into The Psyche of The American Worker
Author: Alexandra Djonovic (Left Leaning) I would have never believed you if you told me, a proud and archetypal member of Generation Z, that I would be coaching disgruntled adults, sometimes significantly older than myself, on what a deductible is. Some things are too emblematic of adulthood, and grasping healthcare in this country is one of those things. And yet here I am. I work … Continue reading A Complicated Patchwork: You Shouldn’t Feel Bad If You Don’t Understand U.S Healthcare
Author: John Bedell (Democrat) Ah, the Bald Eagle. With grace and majesty it floats through the air, the stark white head stands out against the cloudless blue sky. Spotting a pine tree, our friend the Eagle calmly comes to a landing on the thickest branch, three-quarters of the way up the tree, and surveys the land below, the yellow beak maintaining a noble smirk as … Continue reading Bald Eagle: America’s Bird
2020 is a level pulled out of the world of Jumanji, literally. In just the first half of the year, an entire continent was on fire, a pandemic broke out, invasive murder hornets were found on the continental US, the existence of UFOs was–for the first time–confirmed by government officials, and the established social order seemed to be on the brink of collapse. What’s next? … Continue reading And that’s the tea: Comparing and Contrasting Democratic Movements in Hong Kong and the US
