Based on reading Julius Caesar I learned that neither Marc Antony nor Julius Caesar would make a good president of the United States. I believe Brutus will. Although Marc Antony and Julius Caesar had great leadership qualities I believe they did not have good morals or enough strength and courage to handle the power. In Julius Caesar, Brutus was known as being noble and always thinking of the good of Rome. If Brutus became president of the United States he would make sure everyone is treated fairly and with honestly.
Similarities between past and modern republican platforms: · Abortion views are the same – Unborn child has individual right to life, no infringement · Immigration – Law is strongly enforced against those who come overseas with a visa · Marriage is the base and national standard of our society Similarities between past and modern democratic platforms: · Work force – More job opportunities for all · Middle class tax cuts · Achieving adequate housing supply so that everyone has a proper place to live 5. I feel like Jefferson would be part of the Democratic Party in today’s world. He was a secular and liberal humanist, and that leans more towards the platforms of the Democratic Party. On the other hand Alexander Hamilton would be closer to the Republican Party because he extremely supported a theocracy, and he also cared more about the stability of the country economically instead of the people, hence he created the Federalist
Thoreau believes in a government that puts the needs of the people ahead of the needs of the unjust few. His belief can be misinterpreted as a cry to abolish the government but he makes it clear by stating, “But to speak practically and as a citizen, unlike those who call themselves no-government men, I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government” (Thoreau 830). This sentence is the most important statement made by Thoreau because it is the starting point of what he wants in an American Government. He does not ask for a perfect government but a fair and free government. He goes on to say that some injustice was far too great to overlook, such as slavery.
Krikorian presents a good argument and has done his homework. The author seems to respect patriotism and feels we have a greater obligation to our citizens than foreigners. Krikorian speaks of a country we once were when our grandparents came to America but not that same country now. He argues our immigration laws need to be shaped to improve the United States along with the government enforcing more stringent immigration laws. This would shrink the illegal population and life for American workers would improve.
All this equality was due to the Amendments to the constitution, and vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General (Vonnegut 8). Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, symbolically portrays the idea of fairness in a society. She is the one in charge of lowering the capacity of a bright and intelligent person to the level of a normal and unaware being. Equality is a great idea that the world should extend and embrace; however, absolute equality is another issue in which to much of a good thing may cause matters to go wrong. In a world of absolute equality, each human being would never be looked upon as anything more or less than the person beside him or her.
Individual Rights and Public Order Criminal Justice 101 by: Daniel S Eaton The merits of individual rights for us as Americans is basic natural rights. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Our Constitutional rights as Americans, especially the first ten amendments or The Bill of Rights, are the most important of our individual rights and without these rights that were written for us by our fore fathers we would most likely still be living in the fashion as they were before the constitution. In my own opinion individual rights are important because I like knowing that the government isn't going to come break down the door of my house just because they want too. The fact that due process must be involved and there must be evidence before I can be hauled off to jail and left there.
Bilingualism in America essay: Should, English be the only language? That is a question that is argued over frequently, especially in the United States. Hayakawa supports that English being declared our official language can do no harm, stating this, “While it is certainly true that our love of freedom and our devotion to democratic principles help to unite and give us a mutual purpose, it is English, our common language, that enables us to discuss our views and allows us to maintain a well informed electorate” (Hayakawa 389). If any person is knowledgeable enough to talk on bilingualism it would be Hayakawa, his track record and life events speak for themselves. Hayakawa is a well educated teacher of linguistics, an author on language theory books and a leader in the effort to make English the official language of the United States.
I feel like it is important to the United States because this is the way it has been for a long time. We can try and change the fact that race and ethnicity is not an important factor to us but it will not stop. Other races came to America to have a free life. The white always thought they were better than any other race. I think that it is only one true race and that is the human race and it should not make a different to anyone about you race or ethnicity.
American exceptionalism can give America an edge over other nations simply because of our freedom to choose what we want to be and do. Americans may never trade or give up what they have in this country for anything different. We have high taxes, low minimum wages, and even may flaws in the political system and also corrupt politician that are supposed to keep us running. Many people may argue that the United States is better than almost any country because of our freedoms, but
