Question:

What's the most important thing when writing?

Inactive
Noah V.
Answer:

I'm going to preface this by saying that writing is not a "topic" that you learn but a skill that you become good at. So I don't necessary have an "answer" here - but I think the most important thing when writing is having a good flow. It's not always good to try and use the best words possible or biggest words possible. It's more important to make sure that your sentences are clear, they all flow well, and they aren't choppy and make the reader stumble or become confused.

Question:

Why is it that certain parties do well in midterm elections?

Answer:

Midterm elections are mostly driven by one big thing: who is currently in the White House. This will drive midterm elections because it determines who turns out to vote. Voter turnout in midterm elections is usually very low. This already advantages Republicans because their voter base is usually older and more reliable voters. But under a Republican president, there's less urgency to vote for them. This is why I believe that before the Kavanaugh hearings, which motivated Republicans to get to the polls in 2018, Democrats were on the verge of a wave election that we had never seen before. Republicans got lucky in how they were able to use the Kavanaugh hearings to drive their base out to vote. The only exception to the midterm rule, which says that the party holding the White House always has a bad year? 2002. That's because Bush and the GOP were helped by the effects of 9/11 and the subsequent wars, keeping Democratic gains very low that year. That is in part because of the "rally around the flag" effect, which says that approval ratings of the incumbent POTUS go up because of a national tragedy. Happy to explain more in a session!

Question:

Why are term limits frowned upon?

Answer:

Advocates and opponents have been debating the concept of term limits for decades. Those in favor point to multiple advantages, such as popularity that term limits have with the general public and the elimination of "career politicians." However, the disadvantages have been highlighted through many studies by political scientists. For instance, research done by a group of political scientists found that term limited elected officials pay less attention to the interests of their constituents and decrease the power of legislators in comparison to the executive branch of government. With regard to constituent interests, the research shows that legislators in a chamber with term limits campaign just as much as those in a chamber without term limits. However, for those that are term-limited, a desire to be elected to office beyond their current position means that they will be focusing on issues and matters that have broader appeal instead of focusing on the needs of their constituents. Overall, term limits are popular, but they're a bad idea and would create a lower-functioning government for the people.
