OPINION: To Save the GOP, Trump Must Go

The midterms have come and gone, and the predicted “red wave” looked more like a ripple. Weak candidates appeared to be one primary issue. Senatorial candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano in Pennsylvania are great examples. Putting policy aside, these Republicans were deeply flawed candidates that ran poor campaigns. Both were endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

Fishers Residents Debate the Role of Public Education

A debate is raging in Fishers, Indiana and across the country over the role that public education should play in the lives of students. HSEqual and Fishers One are both community organizations offering different views. HSEqual is pushing for an equal outcomes approach, while Fishers One is pushing for an equal opportunities approach. Their disagreement points out a central issue in American politics.

OPINION: We Deserve More Control Over Social Security

There is no guarantee that I will be alive tomorrow, or that Washington D.C. will not be wiped out in a nuclear blast, taking the U.S. Treasury and the Social Security Trust Fund with it. With that in mind, I like to think I can make better decisions for myself than some arbitrary force controlled by elitists on the Eastern seaboard. My previous article established how Social Security could be put on solid financial footing. Now, what could be done to give people more control over how Social Security is invested, and when they get paid?

OPINION: A Plan to Save Social Security for Our Generation

Social Security is going broke. By the time the Baby Boomers all retire, let alone when we get our chance to migrate to Florida and sip margaritas on the beach, there might be no money left, or the age of full benefits will be 150.  The continued existence of the system depends on young people not having the financial sense to realize that it is a scam. So how can we fix it, without screwing people over who have already paid into the system?

The Fight for Student Journalism at IUPUI

The Sagamore, IUPUI's old student-run news publication, ran from 1971 to 2009. It shuttered in 2009 for a number of reasons. The established difficulties of print journalism combined with administrative overreach produced a paper in an existential crisis - that lost its appeal to writers and readers. But it didn't have to happen. In fact, a former Sagamore editor successfully prevented it from shutting down thirty years before.

OPINION: Why Same Sex Marriage Could NOT Be Left to the States

The conservative judges on the court seem to have a bone to pick with precedent, right? 50 years' worth in the case of Roe v. Wade. While Obergefell v. Hodges has yet to survive a decade. However, overturning Obergefell v. Hodges would require such an infringement upon state's rights and a mangling of legal precedent that a conservative justice wouldn't dare take the risk.
