About Me:I'm a teenager who talks too much. I bother my friends and parents with political jargon all the time, I figured I should bother people like me instead.
Activities:Speech. Choir, Drama, Ronald McDonald House, Football, student council
Beliefs:I was raised in a Middle Class Republican family without strong religious views. When it comes to religion, I feel as if it has no part in politics. When speaking on politics, I find myself leaning towards the right of the poltiical spectrum when on the topic of our nations economy. However, I often find myself on the left when it comes to social changes. I feel as if keeping a moderate mind will help me grasp ideas from both sides of the spectrum, allowing me to know as much knowledge as possible(Even if it's total B.S)

If the examiners came in for a week to see our classes then we would probably be able to achieve much more....

The popular vote is meaningless during presidential elections. As most voters are unaware of this, the media publicizes these farcical popular elections as though they decide who will become president. In fact, the president is more selected than elected and the electoral process is just to make the election appear to be legitimate. shared BoP Opponent must prove that the popular vote is integral in the election process for the presidency....
