With 7 political parties debating numerous of topics ,things can get a little crazy . Although we laughed, the topics that were discussed were serious, and the seniors (political candidates ) did an excellent job debating them.
The political parties all included : The Democrats, The Republicans, The Black Panthers, The Libertarians, The Anarchists, Modernist and, Brown Berets .They decided to argue the following topics : abortion ,immigration , police brutality, education/ tuition fees, death penalty, national anthem, Miranda Rights for minors. These topics couldn’t have been more relevant to our everyday lives. Mr. Gonzalez, the government teacher, decided to give our seniors a challenge in arguing these topics from the perspective of the political party they chose to represent.The seniors made us, the audience, have an open mind to the world around us and the issues we face everyday as young adults and as Americans.
The seniors are trying super hard to make sure that they leave there mark, there legacy, there stamp saying that they were here in some type of way. This is one of those moments we as the lower classmen will definitely remember. This project had a influence so big on us not only because it was an huge election for America but also because we prepare to become adults everyday. What better way to prepare than to get a taste of what the real world issues are?
