If you sit toward the back of any lecture hall, you are privy to the private lives of basically everyone in front of you. Facebook, iMessenger, Twitter, BuzzFeed and other less-than-appropriate webpages sit innocently beside the current lecture material, giving the semblance of productivity and focus. A distracting albeit amusing portal into the hypocritical nature of overwhelmed, exhausted college students trying to enjoy their lives.
Since his 2016 presidential campaign, President Donald J. Trump and his constituents have seemingly used fear as an effective tool to persuade voters. Anti-immigration rhetoric, and arguably propaganda, have been used to fabricate an irrational fear of a non-existent danger. The bolstering of the perceived danger of immigrants and foreigners has been preyed upon most recently in an advertisement put out late last week by the Trump campaign, which attempted to conflate a convicted murderer, the “caravan” of Central American migrants walking toward the United States and the Democratic Party.
Today is one of the most important days for the City of New Brunswick, as residents have the opportunity to elect a new Mayor for the first time in almost three decades. The current mayor has been in office since 1991, and I for one think it is time for new leadership that will finally put the people of our city first.
Staying true to political history, polling seems to indicate that the president’s opposition party will make big gains this November. In this round of midterms, that means the Democratic Party is prepping for a return to (some) political power. For many, the anticipated “blue wave” will serve as a clear attempt to hamper the Trump administration, and to restore some parity to Washington, D.C. This zero-sum game approach means that many Democratic nominees are banking to win on the simple basis that there’s a “D” next to their name instead of an “R." Still, something else has emerged in this election cycle: full-fledged progressive politicians gaining more ground than ever.

“Look at the hordes of Dutch and Irish thieves and vagabonds, roaming about our streets, picking up rags and bones ... Look at the English and Scotch pick-pockets and burglars, crowding our places of amusement ... Look at the Italians and French mountebanks, roaming the streets of every city in the Union ... Look at the wandering Jews, crowding out business streets with their shops as receptacles for stolen goods, encouraging thievery and dishonestly among our citizens ... Look at the Irish and Dutch grocers and rum-sellers monopolizing the business which properly belongs to our native and true-born citizens.” While this excerpt might sound like a President Donald J. Trump who accidentally traveled too far back in his time machine on the hunt for his distant cousin and former President Ronald Reagan, it is actually an 1844 election circular from the “Know-Nothings” political party and published in the New York Daily Plebeian.
Amid news of Megyn Kelly’s NBC show being cancelled after her comments about blackface, I was taken off guard when hearing about the confusion, terror and pure shock that so many people felt and had.

Democratic representation is built on pillars of inclusion and the will, opinion and consent of the governed. For the representative structure to be stable and uphold foundational values, it requires harmony between substantive and descriptive representation in which the values and characteristics of the electorate are reflected in the government, broad citizen eligibility for public office, uncompromisable voting rights, accountable effectiveness and policy influence based in the people. The system in which democratic representation acts as an engine of prosperity and progress for all holds the overarching characteristic of high voter turnout.
