The Liberal Lens bids farewell

This column can be described as an attempt to portray myself through my writing. Fifty-nine articles later, I honestly can’t think of anything further that needs to be said to explain what I believe to be true about politics.

If voters were able to consider both candidates irrespective of political affiliation and who is offered on their ballots, I think that it would force them to consider ideas outside of their personal ideologies.

A race between Whitman and Brown in November is ideal

Frankly, a race between Whitman and Brown is the kind I want to see in November. Jerry Brown has extensive experience and knowledge concerning the position of governor, having successfully served as governor of California from 1975 to 1983.

Concern over for-profit earmarks are an indication of politicians’ interests

Earmarks rules are geared toward ending politicians’ practices of garnishing perks from private corporations, and in turn providing these corporations with taxpayer dollars.

Join the statewide protests today on Dexter Lawn and Marsh St.

When I think of the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights movement, I see that protesting does change society.

Fear must be eliminated for the truth to advance in America

Action and protestation based on fear and imagined threats is becoming a trend in conservatism today, and until that is corralled, truth can’t prevail in society.
