Lucas’s Politics Class Service Reflection

In my politics class, which is taught by Stefan Stawnychy, we have heavily focused on this year’s election. We have discussed various issues and each candidate’s take on them. When one chooses a candidate, they most likely have to agree with some of their stances on certain issues. In order to see the stances each candidate has on an issue, it is much better to see them side by side. One can see which stance they agree with better if they are put next to each other. Thus my politics class decided to do a project where we would present each candidate’s stance on the issues side-by-side. My partner, Kofi Hope-Gund, and I worked on the issues: the wall and LGTBQ rights. Through doing this I got to dive deep into both candidate’s campaigns and the way they presented their issues. I got to see some faults in both campaigns, as well as some good things. One very interesting thing that I found was that Trump does not list his stances on LGBTQ rights on his website. This is very concerning because this is a very important issue in our country and he does not even bother to address it. Hilary goes in to great detail on her stances on the issue. Overall, this project was very enriching for my knowledge of each of the campaigns and it led me to become much more engaged in the election.
