Should You Attend the Women’s Marches?

History was made on January 21, 2017. With an estimate of 4.2 million attendees in the United States, according to The Washington Post, the Women’s March on Washington was the single largest one-day protest in American History.  Many considered the march to be a “success”, since there was a large crowd in comparison to President Trump’s inauguration crowds. However, even in the first march in January, some still questioned its effect. Now, after the events in Charlottesville, Women’s Marches are reconvening around the country, multiple taking place in nearby locations, such as San Francisco and Oakland. The new marches raise…

U.S. Third Parties Matter

Throughout our lives, especially during election season, we’re exposed to the power of the Democratic and Republican parties. Two parties dominate American politics, and their propaganda and ideologies are passed on from generation to generation. As children grow up in this environment, they begin to conform to one of the two parties instead of seeking out a party that meets their needs. This is a failure of the system that needs to be changed once and for all. When I was a little girl, I simply qualified myself as a Republican since my dad was one. It wasn’t until I…

Dumb Things Politicians Say

Sometimes people say stupid things, and sometimes those people are politicians, so I’ve decided to gather the most idiotic quotes from politicians around the U.S. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try and shut the whole thing down.”- Missouri representative, Tom Akin, and licensed physician. “We should understand that you don’t deal with nations like Russia and China by embracing arm-in-arm and singing kumbaya.”- Texas senator, Tom Cruz. Weird, I thought that’s what we’re supposed to do. “Women are best suited for secretarial work, decorating cakes and counter sales, like selling lingerie.” – Larry Koon,…

New Club Offers New Perspective

A new club focused around conservative philosophy is coming to San Mateo next semester, though it has already begun recruiting members and discussing plans. Calling themselves the “Patriots of SMHS,” members held an informal meeting last Tuesday to talk about what the club should focus on. This club isn’t necessarily for debate. The goal is for it to be a safe place for republicans, libertarians, and others with interest in learning more about conservative principles to speak freely about what conservatism is and why it is the philosophy they have adopted or wish to do so. Though the Patriot Club…
