Outspoken Conservative Leaders are Essential

The Republicans are known for being the economic, money-making, and money-saving tycoons; a class of people who put hard work first and entitlement last. Although the Republican Party has strong economic platforms, the social ideology of the party seems to be unsure and shy. The insecurity stems from the over-dominating leftist media that portrays Republican ideas as racist, misogynist, bigoted, and xenophobic. A silent majority is established when a group of people with similar interests maintain a quiet political stance. In this case, it is because of these slanderous claims from the liberal rhetoric. In a situation such as this one, outspoken conservative leaders including Milo Yiannopoulos, Ben Shapiro, and my personal...

Is Affirmative Action, in reality, Racist?

The richest quality that the United States should take pride in is the diversity of our people. Diversity includes the very intricate and complex cultures and races that make up our population.

The “Trump” Nobody is Talking About

The media is very picky. Depending on the network, certain news stories are presented as they occur or are twisted for a headline that best aligns with the networks’ views. Both sides of the political spectrum are to blame as Fox News tends to be more conservative and CNN and MSNBC tend to be more liberal. Because of this disruptive behavior, popular liberal media has neglected to show the most recent tolerant actions and orders of President Trump. The main focus is to continue the degradation of the president. February 27th: An executive order from the president’s desk is signed to...

“Agreeing to Disagree” is Lazy

The political season is over but the deep polarization of political ideology continues on. So we as a society continue to argue with one another because of it. I have done it, you have done it, we have all done it at some point. We argue on Facebook, Twitter, on our campuses, and especially at the Thanksgiving dinner table every year. At what point, however, will we stop using the phrase “let’s just agree to disagree” and come up with potential solutions, find a common ground, and build a sense of unity again? The American political divide isn’t just amongst peers, family, and...
