Obama has been praised by the Democrat base for his opposition to the war from the beginning, although it has been pointed out that he was not actually in the Senate at the time the war was voted on. McCain supports the war and was among the first to promote the current successful surge strategy. In a national election, however, the question of whether or not we should have gone to war will be far less important than the question of what course of action should be taken now. Obama favors an immediate troop withdrawal, while McCain argues that troops should remain in Iraq until the country is able to stabilize politically and prevent itself from becoming a haven for terrorists like Afghanistan did after its war with the
The Crucible/Goodnight and Good Luck Essay In ‘The Crucible,’ John Procter gives his life to defend his concept of justice and truth. Two and a half centuries later, Edward R. Murrow went against Joseph McCarthy to defend democracy and truth, which he felt were being threatened, risking his television show and career in the process. One could say that these two individuals were foolish in the risks that they took, especially considering that there was no guarantee that their fight would be won. Both individuals could easily have gone on with their lives and careers without having to jeopardize anything. But they made the sacrifice and chose to do so anyways.
Baldwin's biographer points out that, while Baldwin could not possibly ignore what eleven million voters were telling him, he could still put his own spin on the ballot result. Baldwin's own favourite newspaper, the Birmingham Post, pointed out that "the answers given to questions 5a and 5b are most significant peace-loving as this nation is, it still believes in a need to resort to arms". Moreover, while people might favour sanctions, Baldwin knew that applying sanctions would mean taking physical action, including blockading aggressor nations' ports, and he was not prepared to do that until he knew what American policy was likely to be. So we might say that the ballot confirmed Baldwin in his already cautious foreign
I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to take a ten percent chance on change.” Obama is talking about how important change is to American’s and how George Bush did not accomplish that, and McCain supported Bush most of the time. He incorporates the voters by talking about how they have suffered through the last eight years and to make the next four better. If the voters want change to be apart of the fundamentals of the American nation at this point in time it will not be achieved by electing McCain. McCain really draws the voters in on this aspect of his speech. “In America, we change things that need to be changed.
One of the most influential promises President Barrack Obama made was getting the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell done away with once and for all by starting the bill of getting the policy appealed.

Summary Michelle Bachmann, former Republican presidential candidate, was in an interview on CBS show “Face the Nation” and stated that the Tea Party has changed the Republican Party for the better.

Lasheena Jackson English –Comp 101-25 Midterm “Liberators” In my opinion I believe that the Occupy Wall Street protesters deserve the appellation liberator. The protestors are liberators because there goal was to free American citizens from the current state of the American condition. Even though the protestors were not as organize as they should have been, it is no denying that they was able to spark a movement that quickly expanded across the nation. Addressing these people as occupiers to me is disrespectful because it downsizes all of their efforts to bring awareness to the nation’s current state. Occupy Wall Street protesters were a group of brave individuals who took a stand on the issues that they believed in, they should never be addressed as occupiers.
He has instilled positivity back into our patriotism. He does not deny that our nation has great issues at hand, but he says that if we work together, we can achieve solutions. I think that Obama's speeches and ideals are, in many ways, just claims. But in significance to his presidency, it is his belief in these statements that America needs to see. After eight years of struggle and disapproval, we are starving for someone to look up to and lead the way, and we found that in Obama.

Finally, the supreme court support was vital as much as presidential support for example, Montgomery bus boycott Browder V Gayle which desegregated
