On November 6, 2012, Mr. Giovannangeli's Political Science, American History, and Canadian History classes (also known as "G-Nation") celebrated their second American Election Party. Students dressed as their favourite American politician while they watched the election results. Surprise appearances were made by Bill and Hilary Clinton, Mitt Romney, and other well-known politicians. Obama would have come as well but he was a little busy that night.
High school students get the worst reputation of being ignorant of politics and "what's going on in the world" but this crowd was fully informed and waited in anticipation as the votes came in late into the night. The only admission requirement for the party was food to be shared with the group. Tables were filled with delicious food and drink, much to the satisfaction of the many political junkies in attendance.
Now, I am a very political person and have been warned by my fellow journalists at MORE News not to try to impress my views on others but that doesn't mean I can't inform you about the candidates running for President. For the unaware, Democrat President Barack Obama was running for his second term against Republican Mitt Romney.
It was a tight race, with some states coming in 51% to 49% but I am happy to report that President Obama defeated Mitt Romney and won his second term in office. If you were watching the elections and wish to be more informed about all kinds of Canadian and American politics, STM has a Political Science class you can take in grade 12. Even when the election season is over, politics does not stop. It should be continuously studied and examined at all times. Politics is interesting, enlightening and entertaining (in an educational way), and students celebrated their love for it at the G-Nation American Election Party.
