Jared Chastain: “To be fair, ‘we’ probably didn’t vote at all because our lord and savior Bernie ‘lost’ to the ‘lesser of two evils.’ ”

Anneliese Zook: “The campus had a fairly large turnout. Whitman county went blue after all. In a sea of red.”

Randy Stillwell: “I wonder if the people of Syria voted to be gassed. I would like to discuss the ‘solution’ the students have … I understand that there is a blue side to college beliefs but really, what would they suggest the U.S. do?”

James Ellis: “If anything, Republicans should be outraged by this, considering Trump ran on an isolationist platform and opposed Obama taking any action in Syria.”

Joel Jones: “Good move, and excellent way to come together for future dialogue on this and other issues of concern. Well done!”
