Contributing sentiments towards policy:

33% : "Apparently 12 years of tuition-free public schooling is not considered socialism.
66% : Both inside and outside of my lecture halls, I felt surrounded by narrow-minded thinking, disguised as patriotism and fiscal conservatism.
2% : They know I am a journalist, the group of people set upon by vigilantes and police alike, dubbed by the president as the "fake news media".
16% : The intimate details of Trump's taxes were finally revealed, showing a president who pays less in tax than me.
34% : As a 25 year old burdened with student loans and part of the first generation to be worse off than our parents, I found it disheartening to see my generations' politics dismissed by people with disproportionately less social and financial burdens than their younger, more diverse counterparts.
11% : We work harder than our older counterparts to make rent and pay off student debt, while being dismissively referred to as "side-hustlers".
55% : Supposed liberals, laughing off ideas that would make the lives of the less wealthy tangibly better: a free healthcare system, a universal basic income, the erasure of student debt.
98% : I know the people who inhabit these gated communities, tucked away behind perfectly manicured bushes.
96% : For my mental health and sanity, I chose to make peace with that reality.
95% : And so the state I loved so much, with its sprawling landscape, comfort foods, and friendly disposition also became my enemy.
93% : When the squad - the group of new, radical, congresswomen of color who have so inspired millennials - was dismissed by Nancy Pelosi as only speaking for "their Twitter world", it feels like a self-important finger saying "shh" to America's youth.
93% : You care about politics and want to change the world.
15% : I had come to embody the social justice warrior trope not just to older people, but to my peers as well.
15% : I might not be screaming "the end is near" in the town square like the local lunatic any more, but I am having conversations with people if and when they are willing.
12% : In hushed conversations by boys in pastel shorts and fishing shirts, I heard racial slurs slung around without remorse and the women who dared to speak up to them called "annoying bitches".
10% : How could she not care?
9% : My fellow young people are not uninformed or dispassionate; they are tired.
