Jonathan Jaklitsch Anthropology 143 1/28/08 Essay 2 No one likes to feel like an outsider, but inevitably, it happens to all of us at one time or another. For some people, feelings of foreignness can be influenced by one’s race, religion, or culture. For me however, my feelings of foreignness originate in my political party affiliation. I consider myself a Republican. Now, that may not seem unusual, but as a teenager from New York, I definitely stand out. In New York State, Democrats outnumber Republicans by a five to three margin. In New York City, the numbers are even more slanted—five to one. When you add in the fact that a substantial majority of young people side with the Democratic Party, I appear even more unique. In high school, our AP Government class would often debate certain issues such as abortion, taxes, and foreign and domestic policies. In these debates there would generally be about five, including myself, on the Republican side, fifteen on the Democratic side, and about five undecided. Each side would give their opinion on the issue and what they thought should be done about the problem.
