If I get drafted to go to war it would be a hard decision to make if I would go or not because you may never get to come back alive. Thinking about it I would definitely go to war because it’s the right thing to do. If you love your country why not go to war to defend its freedom for your family and every citizen that lives in it. Your country is your home a real man would do anything to defend their home. America is a free country and I agree with the opposing person that wouldn’t go because it forced on them.
The Military Draft: Unfair and Unnecessary The freedom to choose a life served in the armed forces is a right given to the American people by its government. A draft ruins the benefits of an all volunteer military , is against life ownership principles, and only adds more numbers to the troops we have stationed all over the world protecting countries other than our own. An all volunteer military ensures that the soldiers we train, support, and trust with our lives and the lives of other; want to serve and protect. Driven by patriotism, and faith, these soldiers have a state of mind that cannot be forced. Being away from home, family, and almost every luxury is both physically and emotionally taxing, having the courage to do this makes being away easier, being told by a piece of paper that you are leaving for a few months to a few years to a location you don’t know, is terrifying.
It is not acceptable to go beyond legal, moral, and/or ethical boundaries when the nation is at a risky time of war, but only on certain conditions. Some issues discussing this are the neutralism of U.S., the Executive Order #9066 declared by FDR, and the decision to drop the bomb. These issues greatly impacted America’s standing in the world and history immensely. It was recorded into history for the mistakes that we did and the damage we caused. The U.S. struggled with each issue and did what they thought was right, even if damage was caused.
Controversies of oil or political control are only some of the reasons citizens assume is the reason. Despite these facts, a majority of the United States population agree that the Iraq War is not neccesary. The United States White House and the Bush administration assure the citizens that they are trying their best to complete the Iraq War, and return the soldiers back to their homes. Through the recent surge of reinforcements in Iraq, the government state that this is essential to ending the war faster. But carnage the surge has caused, the war has been made longer instead of shorter.
When the war started many American people was against it and want this to end son as possible. They were against it because United States didn´t have any trade with Vietnam or something like that. Many people give their opinions about the war in Vietnam. In the next paragraphs I am going to talk about two American groups fell about the war, the two groups are the American public and the soldiers. The first group the American public at the beginning of the war agreed with the fact that Us was helping South Vietnam, this because the president of the united States in this year told the people that they need to go to war and they have to go even if they don´t like the idea.
From 1948 until 1973, during both peacetime and periods of conflict, men were drafted to fill vacancies in the armed forces which could not be filled through voluntary means. In 1973, the draft ended and the U.S. converted to an All-Volunteer military. Today, people that argue that the draft needs to be reestablished have a strong base for their commanding arguments. Some believe that serving in the military is a civil duty, and to live in this country one must defend it. That patriotism is illustrated in this quote by George Washington, "It must be laid down as a primary position and the basis of our (democratic) system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal service to the defense of it" (Moore).
I believe that most countries would not want Americans to be meddling the lands’ of others, day in and day out. In addition to that, it will only waste more money and more lives of U.S. soldiers that could be used far better elsewhere. If the U.S would stop fighting in unnecessary wars, then there will be fewer deaths. The U.S already have enough problems to deal with and the U.S. should not need to spend more money on unnecessary fights. If the U.S. would stop dealing
We can control our own actions whether they are right or wrong and be held accountability for them. We can teach others from right and wrong. We cannot control the actions of others even if they are good, but we can definitely hold them accountability for the wrong actions. Having more information about the timeline and events of 9-11 makes me wonder if the President would have acted on some of the information would so many people have died that day. President George W. Bush declared, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America.
A lot of people really feel that the drinking age should really be higher than 21. There are so many reasons why this should be taken into consideration. The following examples and statics should help make this argument a bit clearer. Many people have heard the argument that 21 should be lowered in the United States because when people turn 18, they can join the military to defend the very country that will not drink at 18. Most people thinks that it makes no sense that you, at 18, have the adult mind to join the armed forces, but you are not old enough to have a drink before you go off to war.
Gun control laws have become such a huge controversy in the United States due to the fact that citizens believe their Second Amendment right is being taken away from them. In my eyes, I believe that extended gun control measures should be taken to ensure that access to assault weapons should be limited to certain people. I believe one deserve a well rounded background check to see if any mental health issues are visible. I also believe you have the right to own a weapon and the government is not trying to take away your hunting rifles, personal permitted handguns, etc. They government is emphasizing more on the fully automatic weapons, explosives, armor and other things that only the military should have access to.
