I think Chalmers equates independence with slavery because he already believed he was free under British rule. He mentions how he is proud and loves his country and there shouldn’t even be any change to independence because Britain protects them from becoming taken over. 4.) How does the language used by the two writers differ, and what does this tell us about their views of politics? Paine’s writing is much more poetic to me in my opinion.
Samuel Adams and John Hancock were highly influential in the spurring of the American Revolution. Each contributed by provoking the American colonists into action, especially in Boston. Because of their success and direction, Adams and Hancock were elected by the colonists to multiple leadership positions. Of course, though, there would be nothing to provoke into revolution if it hadn’t been for the tyrannous British oppression. Samuel Adams was a powerful writer and orator.
On January 20, 1961 John F. Kennedy presented his inauguration speech to America. He aims to enthuse Americans to change their attitude to a more worldwide view. John F. Kennedy effectively uses antimetabole, alliteration, and anaphora’s to achieve his purpose. The use of antimetables in J.F.K’s speech helps him keep his point clear. Kennedy says “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country…” this is said backwards so the Americans start thinking about the country as a whole.
Many look to George Washington for the great things he accomplished in his lifetime. Winning the War for American Independence, being the first president, and shaping the way the Constitution was written and how the federal government was formed are all attributable to him. However, from his youth, he was a man who focused on the little details in his life predicted his behavior in large situations as they were presented to him. The mentality and experience he had from such a young age made him into the great leader he was. People who were under him as president must have enjoyed having a loyal educated president who knew what he was doing.
Discuss each selection in its own complete paragraph. Answer: I think that Thomas Paine’s writing “Common Since” probably can be used as a form of protest. I know that really he is urging people to ratify the Declaration of independence and that’s not much of a protest because he isn’t going against it, he is for it but there are some signs of it in his writing. He is against staying loyal to Britain. He is protesting against the loyalists who want to stay loyal to Britain and not be free.
During the creation of Constitution, each state had to approve it. During this time there were people who supported it, Federalist and who did not, Anti-Federalists. I am siding with Anti-Federalist since they were right in thinking they did not want to give all their power away to the national government. If you lived in a state separate from where government state is established, how would you get your problems in your state solved if you had a government who was telling you what to do but not really knowing what problems you had in your state. If I lived back in that time, and having just finished the war with Britain where we finally got our independence, I would remind people all the issues we had.
Disagreements erupted over how the colonies felt that they should be treated and the way they were actually treated by Britain. The British stance was that the colonies were created for the benefit of Britain and the Colonialists wanted more say in their own existence. One main cause of the revolution was that the Colonists wanted more representation within the British government hence “no taxation without representation”, (Hickman n.d.), Britain was unwilling to do this. Another factor was the geographical distance between Britain and the Colonists, this created a sense of independence with in the colonies. Britain therefore tried to tighten control over the Colonists through a series of acts designed to quell any sense of rebellion.
He did believe that the government should have the reins and be in control, but he always wanted the people of America with him every step of the way and to know what was going on. He never wanted them to not know what was going on and to never have to question what they were doing. In Document G, FDR says “The voice of great events is proclaiming to us. Reform if you would preserve.” Like stated earlier with Hoover, Conservatives are highly against change in government and want little to none to happen. Honestly though, sometimes it is the only way that you can improve.
George III, King of England, stressed very clear his commitment to defeat the rebellion through his speech toward Parliament in London on October 26, 1775. Despites all the consequence of the rebellion, he concluded that “none affects me more sensibly than the extraordinary burden which it must create to my faithful servants”. To him, America’s rise against England was liked the disobedient son, and that’s why the father wanted to put his son in discipline. Indeed, it was impossible for
Although i believe many things from both people, I would have to say my philosophy would be Jefferson’s philosophy because he believed every word of the Constitution. It does not make sense to compose an important document that is beneficial to the people, and not stand by it. That's like being a teacher who composes a set of classroom rules and does not enforce them. 8.) I believe Adams was a great president because he managed to keep George Washington’s policy of remaining neutral and staying isolated.
