Descriptors more befitting of nations like Saudi Arabia or Sudan, both of which are designated as the “worst of the worst” regarding their citizens’ liberties by Freedom House, are instead applied to Israel.

The Iowa caucuses which were among the tightest in recent memory. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio received 27.6, 24.3 and 23.1 percent of of the vote, respectively. The Democratic side was even closer, with Hillary Clinton barely edging out Bernie Sanders 49.9 percent to 49.6 percent. These numbers suggest that parties are having a hard time picking a candidate.
The Daily Gamecock will not be endorsing candidates in the 2016 Republican, Democratic and Libertarian primaries. The likelihood of coming to a meaningful staff consensus on these issues is small, and that is definitely not a bad thing. Diversity in political views makes this campus and nation stronger rather than weaker.
As of January of this year, the U.S. Congress has an approval rating of 16 percent. Americans are understandably frustrated with the mess our legislative branch has become. Regardless of party affiliation, roughly 80 percent of us can admit that the partisan gridlock that has overcome Washington is a problem.
Dear Paige Pierce,
Trains are a fact of life in Columbia and at USC, especially on the south side of campus.
If you're gay, you're probably familiar with the apps Grindr and Tinder. Because queer people, for the most part, have small social networks that limit the number of other queer people we interact with, these are apps that help connect us with other members. It's important to keep certain caveats in mind when using these apps, however, like their sexual nature, and the disconcerting pervasiveness of anti-blackness in these networks.
Like every other student, I have been required to take a number of required courses that are not a part of my major’s requirements — primarily, those that comprise the Carolina Core.
Recently, in Trump news, we have heard about how he has forfeited his place on the debate stage, joked about testing the loyalty of his followers by shooting someone and been endorsed by none other than the original far-right nonsense factory, Sarah Palin. He has accrued a genuinely hilarious slew of endorsements, actually. Rounding out the pack are none other than Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin, everyone’s favorite crazed foreign leaders.
On Tuesday, Donald Trump announced that he will not participate in Thursday's Republican debate. This means that the debate may actually have some political discourse or intelligent discussion, although that's not guaranteed. By skipping the debate, Trump makes an appeal to his voter base but leaves himself vulnerable. During a tight Iowa race, this could be the move that paves the way to a Ted Cruz victory.
In response to last Wednesday's letter to the editor, regarding student fan base attitude during the Mizzou game:
Last April, I penned a column attacking Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy that appeared in The Daily Gamecock just before she launched her campaign. Titled “I’m not ready for Hillary,” it was a blistering indictment of Clinton’s political record and personal motives.
While Americans suffer under the disconcerting rise in prescription drug cost, pharmaceutical companies continue to offer their CEOs egregious salaries, which are then supplemented by stock option grants and cash bonuses.
America prides itself on being a vessel for equal opportunity in myriad ways. We claim that anyone can make it, irrespective of his or her background. This is a myth that helps to mystify the ongoing violence and class warfare against poor and working class people.
Oftentimes, I find myself sitting in class wondering, “Is college really worth it?”
Over the weekend, news came out from various anonymous sources that Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, is preparing a run for the presidency. This news doesn’t mean the bid is certain; the media was equally sure that Vice President Joe Biden would enter the fray last year. But it does mean that there are now two New York City billionaires threatening to run third party if the primaries don’t go the way they would like.
In some of the boldest moves of his time in office, President Obama recently moved forward on the internationally backed Iran nuclear deal and has endeavored to mend relations with the Republic of Cuba. These actions, despite their overall praise from much of the world, have not received a stellar welcome back home.
If you walk to class along Greene Street most mornings, you cannot fail to notice the people preaching on the street or handing out religious materials. You also cannot fail to notice that they are ignored by the vast majority of students passing by. Despite being a practicing Christian, I admit that I have, for the most part, paid them little attention myself, either because I am legitimately trying to get somewhere quickly or because I am somewhat embarrassed by the heavy-handed methods often employed by those of my faith in such preaching.
Salisbury, Maryland, is what I list as my place of residence on most applications that I fill out. And while most people have no idea where Salisbury even is, I know everything about it.
A programmer from India getting his master’s, a doctor from China going for post-doc, a biologist from Iran doing cancer research and a statistician from Bangladesh pursuing a doctorate — what do they all have in common? They all have to live and work with Americans despite vast cultural differences.
