more than any other race. They have faced segregation, racism, violence, and of course slavery. Finally seeing the progress and success of the race with one of their own being elected President for the first time in history, with reason, becomes overwhelming. But if blacks truly care about the progress of their race, they need to do what they as people have been begging others to do throughout history, and that’s look past a man’s color and into his heart or in this case, his agendas. Barack Obama may claim he loves the black community, but his agendas and causes that he is promoting say otherwise and consequently, will kill more and more blacks
War In Iraq: Good Or Bad? Both of the candidates have opposing ideas of what should be done next in Iraq. Sen. Obama has the idea of definitely withdrawing from Iraq and leave Iraq the way it is right now. Sen. McCain has the idea of continuing pressure on Iraq until U.S. can assure that Iraq won’t fall in the hands of terrorism. I think that what should be done is what Sen. McCain proposes, I have gone many times through his plan and I think that is better than Sen. Obama’s plan.
People want to see the American soldiers come out of the Middle East as soon as possible. They want gas prices back to normal and a president who can represent the most powerful nation in the world with excellence and pride. Many feel that President Bush has over-stayed his stay in the White House. America is looking for a new face: a dominant leader who can be the voice of the nation. Many people believe that Barack Obama is that person.
Bush states that “as long as our country stands people will look to the resurrection of New York City and they will say here buildings fell here we rose”. He addresses most about September 11th and relies on analogies to explain his ideas for example “we have a calling from beyond the stars to stand for freedom. This is the everlasting dream of America”. Although a lot of people disagree with his decisions and visions for America he states that “ordering Americans into battle is the hardest decision, even when it is right.” Even though G. Bush has served a second term as president is a part of the Republican Party which the way he speaks about our country and September 11th convinces me that he and his political party are most going to war instead of world peace and our environment. George Bush and bill Clinton are very different in how they served their terms as president.
Martin Luther King Jr. would be so surprised to see Barack Obama an African American man our new president of the United States. Im sure he would realize the difference he made if he saw that so many white people contributing to the presidential election. Not only that, but a lot of white folks even voted for him and attended many of his rallies. I can recall that in one of Barack Obama’s speeches he touched upon a very famous preacher this famous preacher being Martin Luther King. He stated that he wouldn’t be in the position he is now if it wasn’t for M.L.K.’s dedication in what he believed
Lincoln writes, “Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.” This sentence creates a coordination of words and importance as it does with the utilization of asyndenton. Synchises is seen again in Lincoln's writing when he states, “The world will little note or long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” This sentence and the use of synchises stresses that the American people must honor the lives that had been lost to preserve America's freedom. The Gettysburg address not only plays with the audience's emotion with the application of repetition devices, such as anaphora and epistrophe, tautology, and synchises, but also creates solemn tone yet passionate tone that encourages American's to remember soldiers lost, and to continue to fight for the freedom of
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.
Also the act also has many pros that may be seen as cons due to the fact that it is very controversial. Also I believe that president Obama could focus more on other issues like immigration, economic recession and the Iraqi War. As Rick Perry says “Obama care has got everyone on edge. I mean, small business - men and women or big businesses are sitting out there saying we have no idea what this is going to cost, but we know it's going to cost us and cost us a
As an incredibly historical day all over the world, no matter a person’s race, religion, or political status, today, January 20th, 2009 has emerged to be one major topic for years, in many discussions. A handsome man by the name of Barrack Obama becomes the very first African American to hold the office as President of the U.S.A. Times are changing; some would say for the better, others would say for the worse. Over the past few years people have grown to see despair in America and elsewhere in the world. Perhaps a little naively, the country is simply grasping for any change right now, hoping that this charismatic, new, young, president will be the “knight in shining armor,” able to achieve the impossible and create a miracle. Possibly by
He gave hope to the number of Americans without healthcare or who are struggling to find a job. The President stated that the United States is a country that is not afraid when times are hard and is willing to fight through the troubles for our children and grandchildren. He proposed many ideas that he thinks will help better the nation. As one of the key components of democracy, popular sovereignty, the people of this country want solutions to the problems and Obama has some ideas. Now it is in the hands of Obama and his administration to take it a step further and see if it is really the answer our country is looking
