Looking into views on both sides of the election: Romney

This election, the buck stops here. Or maybe not. President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney could not be more different. Not necessarily in their policies, which the third debate showed they have a few areas of agreement on, but instead what they represent for voters and a generation. This […]

Internationals on domestic issues

While students from 39 countries call John Brown University their college home, those allowed to vote in the upcoming election are naturally limited to citizens of the United States.

Looking into views on both sides of the election: Obama

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: The room silences, the loquacious words of a highly eloquent speaker fills my ears with the promise of, that’s right, C-H-A-N-G-E. I can feel my inner patriot stir as I am lifted to my feet in a surge of passion, I agree, our nation needs change. Obama’s […]

Belief is action, not just a fact of faith

I want to talk about something I feel God has been challenging me with lately. Before I begin, I first want to let you know a little bit about me. I am not a theologian. I don’t have any credentials to be talking on my subject other than my observations […]
