Letter: Local voting patterns have skewed left

I’ve done a deep dive into voting patterns of UNC students living on or near campus who are registered in Orange County, focusing on 1992-1996, and 2008-2016 presidential elections.

Letter: ​Embrace and debate conflicting opinions

The decision for UNC Students for Justice in Palestine to cancel a speech by Rania Khalek because her beliefs about the Syrian war are too controversial is a nonsensical outrage especially as she is an effective advocate for the Palestinians who have lived with Israel’s heavy boot on their necks for over seven decades.

Letter: ​​You don’t need a degree to succeed

In response to “Opinion: We generally love college, but not at this moment”: I believe the timeless adage “You can be anything you want to be when you grow up” is a reasonable truth, but should be followed by “as long as you work hard toward your goals."

Letter: ​House Bill 2 has gone on for too long

I have read so much on this unjust bill and how it came about from the fearmongering of the Conservative side who based it on no factual evidence, (and) feel that granting the basic right of using the restroom you identify with is some sort of threat to girls and women.

Letter: Health care proposal is bad for America

Trumpcare is a blow to working class families, older adults and an assault on Medicaid and Medicare! It does nothing to CUT costs, the very premise on which it is planning to supersede Obamacare!

Letter: Tell your reps to take money out of politics

Perhaps my fellow citizens have failed to notice that we, as a society have invested a great deal of trust, power and authority in legal entities whose only reason for existing is to make a profit.

Letter: ​DTH sports coverage is not sexist

Although the UNC women’s basketball team may have won their game by a buzzer-beater, they still do not need the coverage that the men’s team does. The UNC women’s basketball team is not nearly as popular as the men’s.

Letter: ​We must keep an eye on our government

Extracted from the full quote by John Philpot Curran, “The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.”
