In Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, presidential candidate Joe Biden made instant history. With a confused statement regarding the capital gains tax, the candidate forgot for a brief moment that he was running as a Democrat. The 78-year-old man firmly asserted that he would “eliminate the capital gains tax” in an exchange with competitors. Following the debate, Biden apologized, explaining that he thought for a moment that he was running for the Libertarian nomination.
The Iraq war began in 2003 and has caused the death of over four thousand American soldiers and devastated civilians. The war was controversial from the beginning; many people protested and spoke out against it. When people questioned the war, the state often insisted that we were over there fighting for our freedoms. Many thought this was a made-up scapegoat, but it turns out our freedom really was in Iraq the whole time.
