A pragmatic defense of Bernie Sanders

A pragmatic defense of Bernie Sanders

I am a pragmatic voter. Unfortunately, as a Bernie Sanders supporter, many of my peers do not see me that way. In political debates in hallways, offices, and classrooms, I have been surprised by the absolute dismissal of Bernie, which many “informed” students on campus have communicated when either side gets on the soap-box.

Political theater: why Hillary’s emails are a non-issue

Political theater: why Hillary’s emails are a non-issue

Over the past few months, the 2016 presidential race appears more akin to political theater then politics. We have Bernie Sanders, the underdog, taking on the Clinton political machine with his special brand of democratic socialism. On the other side, there’s firebrand Donald Trump, whose mix of nationalism and pure pompousness have propelled him to the front of the Republican […]
