In what has since been referred to as the “four freedoms” speech, Roosevelt describes the ongoing war in Europe and the United States’ inevitable role in it. He calls for an end to the isolationist foreign policy that had been in effect since the end of World War I a generation earlier. He explains that our freedom and our way of life are directly threatened by the spread of fascism, and though he does not intend to immediately send American soldiers into combat, that we must be prepared for anything. He states that our aid and support of European democracies (via the Lend Lease Act) are vitally important if we are to “maintain a free world.” Roosevelt states, as a message to the Axis powers, that “such aid is not an act of war”. However, he then clearly tells the nation that “if the dictators are ready to make war upon us, they will not wait for an act of war on our part.” Sensing the seemingly inevitable involvement in the war, he tells Americans that “we must all prepare to make the sacrifices that the emergency demands”, meaning that we must be militarily prepared for anything, and that the nation must be mentally prepared to make significant sacrifices.
Truman:- Harry Truman was president of America after the death of F D Roosevelt in April 1945.

Harry Truman was born in 1884 in Lamar, Missouri. He was brought up in a rural background and in World War one he served on the Western Front as a captain in the American artillery. After the war, he took a law degree at Kansas City and after this he moved into the social and political circles of the Democrat Party.
Some of the techniques I noticed were syntax, repetition, logos, and finally, pathos. Eisenhower’s Inaugural Speech of 1953 was very successful in connecting to his listeners. He was able to get his penultimate purpose across, which was that the country needed to band together once more to stay strong against the flare up of communism, but I believe his ultimate purpose was to keep the country moral high, and keep the people together, so they could overcome anything, whether it be communism or aliens. The United States of America will forever be banded together after this

Those words that were used by Bush are also essential because they represent solidarity. During this period American’s want to feel like they are living in a safe country and Bush reassures them that this is true by stating: “Our military is powerful, and it’s prepared.” By saying this he lets American citizens know that their military is powerful and will protect them, thus reassuring them that if anyone tries to attack them again, the military will be prepared to
Franklin D Roosevelt was very clever in a sense. Roosevelt always kept the people on his side by telling them that its for their benefit even though sometimes it affected the people of the United States badly. But that was one of the reason he was a good leader, because he kept the people on his side all throughout the war for constant
He said that he was resigning because it was best for the country. He said that American needs a “full time president and a full time congress”. Nixon knew if he would continue his presidency that he couldn’t put in everything he had and neither could the rest of the American government. The third most important issue the president addressed was the appointment of Gerald Ford. He told the American people to support him for
With Henry appealing to something like faith that the audience members held so dearly he was able to not only capture their attention, but keep their attention and ultimately persuaded them to his sentiments. Henry untimely wanted the audience to know he would rather die for his country then to be without freedom. Within his speech Henry informed the Virginians what they had been doing in an attempt to achieve peace, was not successful nor would it ever be. (2) The receptive audience felt the same sentiments as Henry. Henry’s speech was a pivotal point in American History.
People who were under him as president must have enjoyed having a loyal educated president who knew what he was doing. With his high knowledge in political philosophy, he set an example for his fellow citizens over the course of nearly half a century. He summed up the lessons he'd learned in his "Farewell Address to the People of the United States," with its central theme of union based on the primacy of the Constitution. He spoke out his theme with warnings to steer clear of sectional and political divisions. Washington also advised on foreign relations; on the role of religion, morality and education in public life; and on the need to protect public credit and stabilize commercial and manufacturing interests.
