When we selected this issue’s theme in November, the topics on all our minds were the election and ensuing political issues. We found ourselves so passionately talking about certain topics that we felt we had no other choice than to publish these controversial topics in Klipsun. Some people on the Klipsun staff expressed concerns about publishing a political issue so long after the election. We decided, however, that just because the election was over didn’t mean we had forgotten the issues.

Politics are personal. They affect our everyday lives, from paying taxes to checking out library books, and they affect our futures, from having the right to choose to traveling the world. For this issue, we tried to ensure each story was as objective as possible and covered a wide range of issues that affect each U.S. citizen personally.
