The news right now is peppered with articles about Obama's actions of making sure all companies offer insurance for their employees that includes contraception. Dan Mercia of CNN writes it as, “An original mandate on providing contraception was part of the new federal healthcare law spearheaded by Obama, the Affordable Care Act. It required that insurers provide, at no cost to those insured, all forms of contraception approved by the Food and Drug Administration.” This is not something that is making the Catholic people happy because they believe life should not be prevented. The author of the NY TIMES article talks about just such a case when Judge John Kane issues an injunction against Obama's insurance mandate. There is nothing that says judges, individuals, or companies can ignore a law once its made because their beliefs don't follow under that law.
With the foundation of a federal government, that government can regulate and maintain both domestic and international trade without individual state interference, therefore making the United States one of the most important trading countries in the western world. This is only one possible explanation, another might be that they honestly did purely want to build a government for the people of the United States and by the people, which is supported by Paul Johnson’s writings. Other debates between intentions lie behind the injection of United States into the Vietnam conflict. Some historians say that the reason for our entrance into the conflict was to protect democracy and stop the spread of communism. Others say that the U.S. involvement wasn’t to protect democracy but to protect our economic interests in the nearby South Pacific and Middle East.
LONG TERM INVESTMENT DECISIONS RICHARD CORRAL PROFESSOR TOKUNBO OSINUBI ECON 550 STRAYER UNIVERSITY 16 JUNE 2013 Introduction “In the Declaration of Independence, the Founding Fathers envisioned a government that protected the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. They likely did not imagine a government has the power to protect people from the supposed dangers from raw milk, texting while driving or alcoholic energy drinks, or to mandate that people buy health insurance. Stepping in and regulating the free market is an inappropriate role for government, and it does more harm than good” (policymic, 2013). Throughout history, there have been many cases of some type of government regulation attached to a business or people involved in the business. There are many in the business of business who believes regulation of any kind is bad for business.
English Only Legislation Literature Review Emmanuel Santiago ENG 201 Professor Sheila Figueroa January 9, 2011 Our country was founded on the ideals of freedom and religious tolerance. America’s founding fathers intended for us to be a nation of tolerance towards cultural diversity too. Early projects by members of Congress to obtain an English only legislation have failed to make any significant progress. Immigrants already understand that success in America cannot be attained without proficiency in the English language. Do we need federal legislation to further assert this fact?
Morphing America: Straying from the Founding Principles By international comparison, America is arguably the gold standard for what all aspiring nations should try to achieve in terms of liberty and personal prosperity. However, if the founders were able to weigh and measure our progress since the inception of their grand design, our present system of governance, along with its predecessors would certainly fall well short of the superior standards they evinced. Now, it is obvious that these men have long been absent from the likes of the living so it is relatively impossible to ascertain how they would literally judge our present society, but their wishes are well documented in history and sufficiently afford us with the ability to judge
Some members of Congress argued that a listing of rights of the people was a silly exercise, in that all the listed rights inherently belonged to citizens, and nothing in the Constitution gave the Congress the power to take them away. It was even suggested that the Bill of Rights might reduce liberty by giving force to the argument that all rights not specifically listed could be infringed upon. In part to counter this concern, the Ninth Amendment was included
Persuasive Communication Presentation Christina Vasquez Victoria Lara Irma Jacquez PHL 458 April 15, 2013 Deborah Moore Immigration Reform “We are the first nation to be founded for the sake of an idea—the idea that each of us deserves the chance to shape our own destiny. That’s why centuries of pioneers and immigrants have risked everything to come here…The future is ours to win. But to get there, we cannot stand still.” President Obama, January 25, 2011 Immigration Reform In evaluating the pros and cons of immigration reform, legalization program, it is important to keep in mind that legalization is not only a humanitarian act; it is also a form of economic stimulus. There are 11 million undocumented people living in the shadows, this is neither good for the economy or the country. We need to encourage them to come out of the shadows so they can pay their taxes and play by the same rules as everyone else.
Many American today don’t realize the importance of such a document, and how it extremely relates to way our society is organized. It’s meaning is a statement of the conditions of legitimate political authority, and proper ends of the government. It proclaimed that political rule would reside in the sovereignty of the people. If we didn’t have the declaration of independence today, our society would be much different. We shaped our life as they are today according to the principles of freedom, equality and liberty, and if we did not follow them many of us today wouldn’t have the freedom to exercise whatever religion we want, have free access to the media or even have the job the want to have.
Bill of Rights and Amendments Paper Lucy Cortez His/301 December 21, 2011 Mrs. Rios Bill of Rights and Amendments Paper This paper will discuss how and why the amendments became apart of the constitution, what problems motivated the adoption of the Bill of Rights, the effects of the Bill of Rights, what problems or changes in society led to later amendments, discuss the 13th through 15th amendments, and the effects. How and Why Do Amendments Become Part of the Constitution? They are ratified by the house of congress and senate as needed. They are actually laws and follow the same essential path as federal laws, with a couple extra requirements. The founders never intended the Constitution to be finished, or untouchable.
It is truly in all Americans’ best interest to urge reform immediately (New Corporate Alliance Urges Universal Care).
The issue with implementing a system for universal coverage in the United States is not about the will to help people, it’s a fundamental struggle between the values of freedom and order. While it can be easily argued that the order provided by the universal healthcare systems in first world countries across the globe has created stability and equality, it is important to take into account the strong sense of freedom of choice that makes the United States so different from every other country in the world. Americans now have the choice to buy or not to buy health insurance and that right to freedom of choice cannot be ignored (Patients' Freedom of Conscience: The Case for Values-Driven
