Wills’ claims that the federal government's chief law enforcement official might need a refresher course on federal law pertaining to legal immigrants. Some American legislators have taken up the position that prohibiting bilingual ballots would be racist. However, evidence shows that millions of other American citizens feel that prohibiting the bilingual ballot is a step in the right direction. Wills’ begins his article with a political anecdote quoted by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. When he was asked whether he would favor the prohibition of the bilingual ballot, he simply stated, “Of course not.” Wills’ continues in the next section stating that our national identity and our federal laws are being weakened by immigration that is influenced by these bilingual ballots.
Thesis Statement: President Barack Obama is not the best choice for President of the United States due to the fact he is pro war, he does not put the American people’s needs first, and he is a liar. The president of the United States, What comes to your mind when you picture the person that is running our country? I picture an honest, person, with honor and integrity, compassion and a firm hand in giving the American People the best he can. The President should be doing things to better American people and America itself for that matter. I do believe that the current President, Barack H. Obama, is not the best choice for the American people.
They were either pursuing a better life, new opportunities, or just running away from a political system. Here they found peace, tranquility and opportunity for advancement — the so-called” American Dream”. Illegal immigration is one of the most controversial issues in the United States, but the new the Arizona law has provoked intense debate from Texas to Montana, drawing support in several polls and generating rejection by major civil rights groups. That is, Americans are trying to correct unlawful immigration dilemma with laws that infringe people’s freedom, liberty and equality. Although the federal government stills working on the immigration reform, according to Arizona’s law, it is a state crime not carrying immigration documents.
As directly stated with complete evidence from an attorney, these contradictions are not only unjust but go against Arizona at the federal court level. Publisher Amir Efrati, of The Wall Street Journal states, “The states have no power to pass immigration laws because it is an attribute of foreign affairs. Just as a state cannot have their own foreign policies and immigration laws either” (Efrati). Also, Stephanie Condon posts how Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham stated, “ Arizona's new immigration law is unconstitutional and that "it doesn't represent the best way forward" when it comes to addressing illegal immigration” (Condon). In simple terms, if this law is not repealed Arizona will be going against the constitution, the 14th amendment is used unjustly, and bigger problems will
Should the United States abolish gun ownership? Introduction: The gun control debate poses the basic question: Who is more trustworthy, the government or the people? Argument A: Increases in gun control laws in the United States of America are unconstitutional. Increases in gun control laws in the United States of America are unconstitutional because the Second Amendment states that we have right to bear arms, citizens have the democratic ideal of life or justice, and statistics show that states with more gun rights have a lower crime rate. (Emotional arguments) Gun control is based on the faulty notion that ordinary American citizens are too clumsy and ill-tempered to be trusted with weapons.
The definitive answer of course is there is no universally practiced direction for guiding ones ship through the economic swell (democratic capitalism is basically the closest bet). I found myself watching a truly comical and hilarious film: Dr. Strangelove. A line resonated with me; “war is too important to be left to the politicians”, said by the deranged General ‘Jack Ripper’ (IMDB, 2012). Luckily I had a pen and paper in front of me and I wrote this down¬¬¬¬--- is International Political Economy to important to be left to governments? Neo-Liberals would say it is too important to be left to the government; they would however say that the government and state are influenced by numerous factors such as factors deriving from individuals, corporations or interest groups (O’Brien & Williams, 2010, pg.
Inequalities in United States The United States has been seen by both its citizens and those abroad as a place where one can pursue an American Dream. Unfortunately, in the modern world this “American Dream” has been proven time and again to be a lie. While many may deny the effects of the United States current economic, societal, and political climate, statistics and facts point to the death of the American Dream and greater disparity in overall equality. Therefore, while it may be a debated idea, inequality in the United States is not a debatable idea. Based upon social class and political power in public policy, the United States has proven to be a nation where the economy, society, and political system do not function in the same way for all of its citizens, and everybody works for the benefit of the few, and against the interest of the many.
Changing the Security along the U.S and Mexico Border There is no other place in the world where an invisible line draws such a disparity in wealth and lifestyle. There are Mexican refuges that want to come to America for a better life for themselves and their families. There is no easy answer to fix this issue. The Department of Homeland Security was created in response to the Sept. 11th attacks. Their mission is to prevent illegal aliens from entering that cause a threat to American society.
Is the 2nd Amendment Worth Saving? Is the 2nd Amendment Worth Saving? “Good people don’t need laws to tell them to act responsibly… and bad people will find a way around the laws.” – Plato “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants” - Thomas Jefferson “The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed, which Americans possess over the people of almost every nation… (Where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” - James Madison -The Federalist Sandy Hook: Littleton, Colorado (Columbine): Newtown, Connecticut. These names strike fear in to anyone who was alive to hear about them as they happened. These were mass shootings in very public places, schools.
Well almost everyone. Robert Bryce asserts, “American energy independence is a dangerous delusion and not a reality.” I support Bryce’s conclusions due to evidence laid out by sources such as White, Zuckerman, and an Independent Task Force (ITF). I concur with each of these sources; energy independence is a distant dream that can’t be achieved in today’s global economy. Energy independence sounds like a good idea and a catchy phrase that will benefit our country. Political authorities have convinced us that using foreign oil and driving cars is bad behavior that funds terrorist activity.
