In the 2018 midterm elections, 57.5% of registered Michigan voters cast a ballot. This was an increase from the 42.8% that voted in the 2014 midterms. The uptick can be attributed to the dislike of President Trump but what also energized voters were two popular ballot proposals: anti-gerrymandering proposition two and proposition one, which legalized recreational marijuana. These initiatives brought many to the polls who might have stayed home, providing a blueprint on exactly what the Democrats need to do in Michigan and across the country to ensure victory in 2020.

Of all the things to impeach President Trump on, the Democrats have chosen the route that could also bring his potential 2020 opponent down. After a whistleblower revealed that Trump had asked Ukraine’s president to do him a favor and dig up dirt on Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, the Democrats have opened up an impeachment inquiry. While Trump’s actions are clearly corrupt, the facts surrounding Hunter Biden’s involvement with a Ukrainian oil company while then Vice President Joe Biden was in charge of cracking down on Ukrainian corruption is just as bad.

Just a few years ago, I stumbled across a song in a “For You” playlist on Apple Music. As I began to listen to the soft piano ballad, I was moved by the songs lyrics as well as the emotion and power in the singer’s voice. The tune was called “You Should Know Where I’m Coming From,” written by an artist who I hadn’t heard of before: Banks. Now, the Indie R&B singer is on the top of my list of favorite artists.
