As I stated earlier, the purpose of this film was to get Americans to support the war. I believe that the audience of this film was Americans who were not exactly sure if they agreed with America being involved in the war. In my opinion, this film was successful in helping Americans change their views on the war. I think that Americans saw how Rick was able to change from a selfish, cynical man who did not care about the politics happening around him, to a pro-interventionist who did his best to help the fight against the Nazis by letting Ilsa leave with Victor. Before this film I am sure that many Americans were like Rick and did not care much for politics or war, but after, I believe many changed their views and felt they needed to stand united and support the fight against the Nazis.
Maybe what it really means to be an “American” is to accept the fact that America is a country full of contradictions and ironies, and instead of chasing perfection, one must simply accept the good with the bad. In Bulosan’s “Be American”, the Philippino immigrant Consorcio wanted so badly to be an American citizen right away that he spent his first paycheck entirely on classical American literature and books on politics even though he couldn’t read or write in English. Consorcio didn’t even know that he was supposed to wear shoes or sleep under the sheets in his bed when he first got to America; he was simply
He shares his fears and concerns with us of a real situation that first generation Americans are dealing with in our country as we speak. His thoughts of being left alone with no tie to his culture are valid and he wants us to see what will happen if we don’t hold onto these cultural ideals. In “About Men”, Ehrlich tells us what a cowboy is and how she believes he has been stereotyped by our culture.

.young Americans.” President Truman did these bombings because he was not thinking about himself, but he was thinking about others. In conclusion, bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki may have been one of the ideas that many people have their opinions on. As I said before, the President really did not think about himself.

In past times of war, when the draft was instated, the draft was always something a man would have to worry about—it could change his life forever. However, with the current war in Iraq, a man and his family do not have to worry about him being drafted; it is his choice to serve the country in this manner.
