Letter to the Editor: Listen carefully

By Maurice Wolfthal     9/13/16 10:32pm

To the Editor:

Kyle Sheehan calls himself "fiscally conservative" and "a non-interventionist." But, Donald Trump has called for a huge increase in military spending in the tens of billions of dollars. And, he said he would do that by cutting the safety net. Trump repeatedly said he supports the use of torture against "our enemies." And, he has boasted that he would "do what it takes" to wipe out ISIS. Do torture and "do what it takes" sound non-interventionist?

Listen carefully to what this candidate is saying.

Chelsea Asibbey for SA secretary

In a rather rare contested election, the Student Association has two candidates on the upcoming ballot for secretary: Chelsea Asibbey and Calla Doh. Due to her fresh perspective outside of the Student Association, willingness to take initiative on her own ideas and emphasis on serving Rice communities, we, the Thresher Editorial Board, endorse Chelsea Asibbey for SA secretary.
