Even though it might seems as a small problem, comparing to all other troubles that the nation has experienced, nonetheless it must be addressed in a timely matter because any delay in making the decision will make the issue even more severe. It might cause people’s choice of government to become much skewed. If some area has a majority of supporters for a certain party and the conditions for them to vote are beneficial, the community will be able to include all their votes, and comparing to a place that has supporters of the opposite party but has no opportunity to vote. The candidate for the election will lose that majority of votes and people will be faced with the government that only minority wanted to see in
In 2010 backbenchers were threatening to rebel over tuition fees. This was enough to force concessions to be made so the rebellion wasn’t as large as expected. It could be said that they failed because the bill wasn’t defeated but in a way it was a success as changes were made. This shows that the image of being lobby fodder is being shaken off by the more outspoken MPs. It is difficult for a Backbench MP to influence government policy if a government has a large majority in Parliament.
Things which convince the majority of today’s voter in the United Kingdom are not really the long-term policies of the parties, or any alignment to parties. As a mentioned before even the class system is not that important anymore, therefore it is not a main reason to vote for the party which used to be the one related to the voter’s class. It is much more likely that the voting public decides what to vote influenced by so-called short-term factors. Another term which is used is issue-voting so the electorate decides new for every single election what are now at the moment the policies I want to support. A voter could switch from voting for the Conservatives to vote for the Labour Party at the next election because they decide according to single issues.
For example: the verbal submission of arguments about where the class should take their next field trip is a political discussion, used by some to convince their peers to support their idea. Or the argument to persuade your parents to change their ideology on the belief of the “reckless teenager” and allow you to take on responsibility in your life and go to parties. Though these forms of politics affect a very minuscule populace and hold very little importance to outside parties, they are none the less politics. One cannot deny the overwhelming presence of politics in our society and the effect of governmental politics in our everyday lives. It is so vast, that the discussion of any sort of morals or ideology will either be is some shape or form in agreement or disagreement with current political views.
So instead of asking why kids should be allowed to vote, shouldn't we be asking why kids shouldn't be allowed to vote? One possible reason why kids cannot vote is because they don't know much about politics. Most kids don't realize it, but they know a lot about politics. In fact, they might know more about politics than adults because kids get a hands-on experience with politics every day. Every day kids are struggling to become popular in school by winning people over.
Gun control has become a large topic of argument in recent years as politicians have begun using it as a tool to win votes. To me there is no reason why a person should not be allowed to own a gun and have it with them. Especially if they have gone through classes or have gotten a permit for the weapon, but many people see the idea of all people being able to own a gun as a harm to society. Guns have various usages besides the downsides that many gun control supporters capitalize. Many people have guns for the sole purposes of self-defense or hunting.
Some people think that by accepting the bill they will have to let everyone in, other citizens believe it is unfair for them; they believe they will take most jobs and in some cases take away a citizen’s job. Another factor why people oppose to it is because they believe that undocumented people do not pay their taxes. Another con would be that more people would be inspired to cross to the United States. There are many contradictory statements that make the bill seem like its benefiting undocumented students without anything in return, when in reality it would help
I feel our government is not looking out for most of the people. I feel that they only look out for the wealthy, which is a small percentage of our country. Now people are getting fed up, and they are speaking out and protesting. In response to the mostly peaceful protests, the police are using violence to try to stop them. It doesn’t seem like the government is doing much to fix the situation.
I tried to keep focus but my solitude was starting to become unbearable. Yes there were many students around but they all seemed to have their own network since they knew their classmates from their previous schools while all of my friends were in regular ed classes. I started to rebel and slacked off so much that teachers began to wonder why i was in a advanced class since they thought i couldn't hack their work load when in reality all i wanted to do was be placed in regular ed just to be with my friends. Odd and dumb reason, i know but I didn't know that at the time. Eventually I was moved from classes due to my insubordination and i was content at the time.
Thinking about it, how much participation in political government do young people have opposed to older people? Less, but not none. Participation can be as limited as participating in a government course, or as simply as expressing an opinion in a public form. Now taking a look at emotion versus reason; young people tend to be veered by emotion more than someone who has invested interest one way or another. The more that you experience in life the more concrete, more static your ideas begin to become.
