One can see why Michael J. Petrilli thinks as he does because President Obama inspires all to take personal responsibility for one’s own education and that in doing so success is guaranteed. You only get out of it what you put into it. This idea is supported by my own experience. For example, I know a lot of teachers who want to see NCLB go away. I think if those in charge would listen to the teachers more often our educational system would improve tremendously.
He understands that the country wants someone who can connect to the majority of the country and will do what is right for everyone and not for just one race. In order to show Obama possesses this quality, he opens the speech with a quote from the Declaration of Independence. “ We the people, in order to form a more perfect union.” He uses this quote to show that he has knowledge and appreciation for the country’s history and elaborates on this quote in a way that shows he has everyone’s best interests in mind. He explains that the history of the country is important to keep in mind so that we do not make the same mistakes in the future. “ The profound mistake of Reverend Wright’s sermons is not that he spoke about racism in our society.
Our Founding Fathers’ legacies have laid a path for America to follow, sidestepping injustice and promoting American ideals. Our Founding Fathers’ creation of the Electoral College was the guiding hand of America’s government and since 1787, electoral voting had always been used in presidential elections. It had been used for more than two hundred years and since then, no major problems have arisen. This month’s resolution is resolved: Direct popular vote should replace electoral vote in presidential elections. My partner and I strongly urge you to negate the resolution due to the following contentions: Contention #1: The Electoral College can enhance the ideologies of the Democratic and Republican parties.
Type of Premise: Prescriptive premise Explanation: A prescriptive premise is a premise in an argument containing a value statement. (Judith Boss, 2011) 1 is a prescriptive premise because the value statement of how marriage is a bond between a man and woman is recognized by society as what a typical “American family” should be. 3 is a prescriptive premise because the value statement that marriage is not based on reproducing is true. Marriage is based on the union of two people who love each other and want to spend their lives with each other. Though having offspring is why marriage is created marriage should be based on the basis of how two people love one another.
They believe that there should be no forced retirements, and people should be able to work as long as they choose, if they are the best qualified candidate for the job. When they look at education and the responsibility to handle education for the youth, the libertarian group wants the parents to have a choice of which education they child receives. It could be home taught or public taught; just the parents should take on the cost of the education. This
A good government must work as a team, in agreement about policy and practice in order for it to function. Rousseau states that the “concentration of powers” only exists as the “consequence of an agreement” made by individuals (Rousseau 141). For a government to be strong the people must agree, and for them to agree there must be fair and equal rights for all citizens. A government must provide a foundation of support for its citizens. Roosevelt insists that everyone has the right of “equality… jobs… security… civil liberties” which should be provided and ensured by the government (Roosevelt 154).
But now, equality and recognition as citizens were within their grasp, and all they had to do was put their trust into their country. Green successfully does this by using ethos to clear all the fear and doubt within the African American people, and it also starts to rebuild their trust within their country. Green tells that they won’t be able to lose if they choose to fight, because they are the “armies of the living God.” If the African Americans chose to fight for the Union, then they would have to put trust in their country’s future. If they really want their future to be different, then all they had to do was join the Union ranks and fight for “truth, justice, and equality for all men.” Green’s efforts in rebuilding African American’s trust in America was successful, African Americans joined the Union ranks and fought for their country. In the end they won, and slowly but surely the African American’s trust in their country built.
The successful candidacy and ascension of Barack Obama to the United States presidency were characterized in similar ways to his speech delivered in Cairo in June 2009, as an historic moment; his remarks in the latter context were interpreted by some as an attempt to recalibrate and reset America’s dialogue with the “Muslim World.” Indeed Obama proclaimed in his opening monologue, “I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive…” Equally important to analysis are Obama’s proclivities and skill of elocution, the establishment and maintenance of credibility vis-à-vis the audience, his appeal to reason, and the alignment of presumed core audience values with their sympathetic imagination. It shall be shown that framing theory complements analysis of ethos, pathos, and logos and is essential to fulsome elucidation of the text. A salvo of dichotomous pairs framed the first three minutes of the speech, during which pathos prevailed in tone and substance. “Tradition” was set against “progress”. These words most embody the Muslim world that Obama set out to describe.
Darling, Move a Little Closer John Downe, in his letter to his wife, persuades his spouse to emigrate to America by emphasizing the beauty of the independent country. Downe does this in order to justify his reasons to his wife to arrive to America; to present to her, and the rest of Downe’s family, that they can, indeed, sustain a life above the poverty line. He adopts a colloquial and sincere tone in order to illustrate multiple points to promote the beneficial ideas of his family moving to America. John Downe conveys his ideas about the protective and financially-free society America seems to be; by presenting the freedom he and his family could gain by living in the independent land. He begins the letter with a sincere tone towards his spouse, “My dear wife,” to imply that he, indeed, does care for his significant other.
Priestley’s use of the word ‘body’ shows that we are all connected and linked. Everyone needs to work together. The Inspector wants to teach the Birlings how to be more responsible and that money and class is not going to make you a better person and should change their attitudes towards the working class after he had spoken to them to change. In 1945 he wanted people to be equal and not be separated by rigid class or gender and boundaries for people to earn a more valued place in society. Priestley deliberately set his play in 1912 because the date represented an era when all was very different from the time he was writing.
