Do you believe you can change the government for the better? Just wait until the next elections in the United States. There are political parties with ideas, who believe they can. Political parties are defined as an organized group of people with the same political aims and opinions, who seeks to change the public policy by having their candidates elected to the public office.The media ,Political Parties, Voters, and the Electoral Process are all connected, the next president of the United States will face a more difficult economic and fiscal situation than any President in recent memory. While some citizens would prefer that governmental leaders implement spending cuts while others would favor an increase in revenue, as a practical matter the country’s precarious financial situation cannot be addressed exclusively by just one of these options.
Anything that goes against what the corporate powers that be is demonized and twisted into a different form through their media outlets to create something that the ill-informed will swallow it no questions asked. Anyone that speaks out against what is obviously wrong with the system is turned into an enemy, while the one’s violating our rights and freedoms are treated like benevolent kings. Recently there have been many successful efforts to subjugate the poorer voters in this country. These measures have passed and it will become difficult for poorer and elderly people to vote in this country. The reason for this is simple, poor people and minorities are more likely to vote for Obama in the coming election and they have more numbers than those that will not.
With that idea implanted into the audience’s mind, Thoreau proceeds to exercise diction while fully getting his point across. “..But at once a better government” demonstrates not just a show of authority but an immediate request for the government to be improved. Additionally, Thoreau uses many (maybe excessive) rhetorical questions beginning with “Why”, when highlighting folly methods used by the government and when exposing the unfairness of the U.S. government’s laws. Notably, Thoreau utilizes the rhetorical strategy mixed metaphors to instruct the people how to disobey the government in the sentence “Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine.” A very significant aspect that needs to be taken into account while examining Thoreau’s essay is the time in which he created it- 1849. The Mexican War is taking place which Thoreau utilizes to demonstrate how the government “abuses” their powers.
After spending the primary season trying to prove they are most in tune with their party, they run for election on the basis of being most in tune with the nation. However, large swaths of the nation are at odds with the social contracts that politician holds with their party (or, otherwise, they would all be members of that party). This sets up the confusing political structure in American culture where politicians must first promise their parties they care strongly about certain issues, then assure the rest of the country that they do not actually care that strongly (Strom 1990). This confusing political structure emerges directly out of the conflicts in the
Assignment One In Miles Benson article, Political consultants tailor candidates’ message to what the voters want to hear, he has several opinions and views on how political consultants, opinion polls and negative advertising affect how politicians want us to feel, react and ultimately vote. It seems that research has discovered that if a politician talks in platitudes he has a better chance of getting himself or herself elected. Being specific seems to detrimental because too many questions are asked. Bill Hillsman, a media expert said that, “obviously, a candidate seeking votes is going to emphasize shared concerns and issues that are popular. But all too often political leadership simply means finding out what the people want and telling them you’ll give it to them” (Benson A3).
In presidential elections people vote for or against a president and this vote is formed from a variety of influences specifically the words of other people. Peers debate amongst one another when making a large decision like determining the nation’s next president. Their choice of words must be persuasive and supported with factual information, otherwise the opposing side will not be persuaded. The candidates work hard to build up a strong influential appearance, yet a slip of words or a minor reaction to an incident can destroy their reputation in seconds. It is easy for society to slander another person’s name; these same words have the potential to influence the outcome of a future generation.
Also the act also has many pros that may be seen as cons due to the fact that it is very controversial. Also I believe that president Obama could focus more on other issues like immigration, economic recession and the Iraqi War. As Rick Perry says “Obama care has got everyone on edge. I mean, small business - men and women or big businesses are sitting out there saying we have no idea what this is going to cost, but we know it's going to cost us and cost us a
One of Obama's weaknesses is that he supports tax increases. He believes this will help the economy improve. Others believe that Obama's lack of experience will be a negative. People believe that he will not have the experience to be able to handle the strains and responsibilities of being President. I support Senator John McCain.
Occupy Wall Street’s Main goal is unknown, however; some of their goals include bank reform, more and better jobs, economic justice, and getting money out of politics. While the goals for their issues may be different, both movements are focused on money, politics, and how our tax dollars are being spent. While the Tea Party movement has turned into a political party, the occupy Wall Street movement is saying they do not want to be associated with any political parties. Moreover from the air, they both look alike, in that there is anger, they are demanding to be heard, and they have legitimate concerns said former Sen. Bob Bennett, R-Utah, whose 2010 re-election bid was hindered by the Tea Party opposing him. Both the tea party and occupy Wall Street movements have been dismissed as not being very important.
What are they doing? Because don’t seem like they are doing their job. And also can they fix the fiscal crisis and the falling economy? Well the answer to that would be no! It’s just some more empty promises from wealthy, money hungry officials who just want votes and publicity to tell people how they are going to fix things and it will be different.
