America for Dummies (aka Europeans)
I am Oliver Urbanowicz, a second-year bachelor student of European Law, from San Diego, California, with a deep interest in law and government. Because American politics is such a common topic of discussion here, I get asked a lot of questions about what I think of current events. I’ve found that a lot of people here in Maastricht don’t have a full understanding of the more technical parts of American politics, so I started this column, America for Dummies (aka Europeans), to address certain current events in my homeland. Mostly it will just be my opinion, which I like to think is near the political center, but I hope, dear reader, to educate as well. So if you have a question about any aspect of American politics or law, feel free to leave a comment, and you might see an answer in one of the articles.
