2. The areas that have influenced me to be liberal about economic policies is school. Being a student and having to pay absurd amounts for tuition, I want the government to focus more on educational spending so that the students don’t have to pay as much out of pocket. I also have experienced and seen lots of bullying and discrimination happen in and during school. I feel like school has influenced me to be liberal about people’s civil rights. My religion hasn’t really influenced my political views at all. Another influencing factor was my family. My family didn’t come from a privileged background but rather a middle working-class family. This prompted me to believe that the government should make employment easier to achieve. In addition to making employment easy to achieve, there should be equality to minorities in jobs as well. My friends are another influencing factor to why I’m liberal. Like me, my friends are also students going to school and facing the financial troubles of tuition. Along with that, they face discrimination before because they are minorities. My friends also came from a low economic background, which influenced them to lave liberal views on economic policies.

3. Based on my political thinking people would think that I am an ideological thinker. Most of the time I’m not an ideological thinker because I don’t get involved with economic and political policies often. The economic and political policies that affect me, will cause me to retaliate and make me more ideological about theses economic and political problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
