Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The AP Government course has opened my eyes to the world of politics and has given me insight to the way in which the world operates as well as the many problems at hand (or so our media says...). Mr. Gaug does an excellent job of testing his students through various activities and assignments.
What I learned is that no matter how hard any individual could try, they would not be able to avoid Government or Politics. The world operates through the laws and rules set up by our Government and it is our duty to understand them and address situations with said laws and rules. We as a people have a very powerful voice and it is up to us to use that voice in order to push for change or resist change. Despite America's ever growing political diversity, we as a nation need to distinguish the good, the bad, and the unnecessary things that reside in this country. Mr. Gaug enabled me to branch out and find where I sit in the whole scheme of politics, especially through his weekly Current Event assignments.

Advice for students:
Be open minded and always side with the U.S. Constitution. Realize that it is open to interpretation and that it should not be over analyzed. You are going to see how the entire government system works and see who you are and what you stand for. The more towards the middle you are on the political spectrum, the better.
