    I'm 15 and going to be a sophomore next year.

    I'm like the only one in my class that pays attention to current events while other kids are focused on basketball and crap. I'm a strong Christian Conservative Republican and proud of it!

    Prescription For America's Drug Problem

    America declared a war on drugs about 45 years ago. This war has been about as successful as our foray into Vietnam. I'm sorry: less successful. There was a time in our past when the government tried to make alcohol illegal. The only thing this accomplished was to make several...

    A few years back, my next door neighbor (a

    peer) said something like "Obama is just trying to take all of our money" (they're a pretty well-off family) and I remember her going off on this little rant about how bad the president is because she probably heard so many biased things from her parents. I like to keep myself...

    When you think about it,

    there's so much money in the world, there are billions of dollars on certain people's bank accounts and yet there is so much poverty, so many people die of hunger and curable diseases. If we would put high taxes, somewhere around 50 percent on people who earn, lets say over 300...
