Political Science Student
Quentin is a student of Political Science. He became interested in history and politics in 2015 watching the Republican and Democratic primaries as well as the 2016 General Election. He is from Hawaii and currently attends school in Colorado.
He voted for several members of the Democratic Party including President Joe Biden although he is an unaffiliated voter as he does not believe it is wise to fully align with a party that does not fully align with his beliefs, particularly on issues such as abortion.
He believes the Democratic Party is becoming too elitist in its politics, embracing symbols of wokeness, intellectualism, and social justice while neglecting and alienating blue-collar, working-class Americans. He also believes Democrats are weak in fighting for their priorities and hardly ever go far enough in fighting for the working class.
However, he is alienated by the Republican Party’s obsession with the military, the police, guns, the church, and conservatism on fiscal and social issues. He is a believer in breaking up the two-party government system and increasing the role of smaller political parties, and he hopes that Democrats can expand their agenda to be more working-class to include socially conservative voters.
Some of Quentin’s most passionate political issues involve foreign policy, free speech issues, reducing homelessness, increasing diplomacy, and spreading and protecting democracy.
Some of his political role models include Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson, George H.W. Bush, Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, and Daniel Inouye.
He respects the political work of Krystal Ball, Saagar Enjeti, Kyle Kulinski, and David Doel.
