We must name it, describe it, analyze it, understand it and change it” he is talking about the injustices of the American government. The more the American people are better to understand the way our system really works the more we will have the power to change the corrupt system. One point that stood out for me was when he said that the U.S. was so afraid that if they were to leave
Our inconsideration toward mother earth is leading to an array of problems in today's world. This devastation can cease quite simply with acknowledgement, consideration, and participation. First, America must acknowledge the effects our waste and pollution has on the world around us. Next, we must develop consideration for the earth and the people we are hurting by destroying it. And lastly, we must participate in the revolution to give back to the earth and reestablish it.
Americans today have much concern about the concept of outsourcing. Ron Hira and Anil Hira in there book Outsourcing America, pose the question “Who is right and why is there difference in opinion whether this is good for America?” Critics continue to argue that outsourcing has a negative impact on American jobs, the economy, national security and pose that should this be allowed to continue, a prosperous future for all Americans is dim. However, it is also profitable for all to view their complaints as objectively as possible because they would never mention the vast benefits that come with outsourcing, especially here in America. Yes, the subject does bring a lot of insecurity and confrontation, but there are those who see it differently. While outsourcing has negative and positive implications, in the long run the future for American will lean towards the positive side of the scale.
The opening quote from Stossel’s book for the segment states that man’s natural instinct is to blame the government and ask for it to do something, often making the problem worse. He attributes putting this responsibility on the government to our upbringing. We are raised to follow orders from our parents, our ancestral clan leaders, our teachers, and now, from Washington. When we hit a bump in the road, we are programmed to run to the government and ask them to act, but Stossel
The continued power grab will destroy the capitalist system shackling the limbs of the free market. The regulation imposed creates factions limiting the ease of market entry. The environment that our American business calls home must remain competitive assuring quality goods to consumers while encouraging technological advancements. The path our federal government is currently on is a path of non-democratic regulation that is a threat to the growth and prosperity of our country. It is simply a matter of the true meaning of the Constitution, specifically the commerce clause that must be addressed.
Illegal votes minimize citizen’s rights in the Constitution and it undermines our democracy that was established and preached by the founding fathers; therefore a solution for this loophole should be quickly tied and these actions no longer tolerable or allowed under the 14th amendment. As citizens of the US, we have a right stated in the 1st amendment to be able to express our opinions; our values and beliefs should be directly represented through the voting process. Although future elections are predicted to be heavily influenced by this growing minority population, politicians are beginning to apprehend the negative brunt illegal immigration has bestowed upon our country as this could be a small factor in the current struggling economy. Congressman Tom Tancredo has vast prospective ideas on how to reform our immigration system. By working across the aisle a feasible and successful solution to the straining liability and encumbrances may be obtained to make our country incorrupt and hospitable to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness to the citizens of the United State of
The second poem “Shine, Perishing Republic” by Robinson Jeffers mostly resembles my attitude towards America right now. I do believe that the government is trying to do anything possible to gain more power even if it means ruining or destroying the environment and society. I feel like the government pretends to actually care about our well-being but we're brainwashed to actually think that. I really don't understand how people can actually do whatever it is they want to do even if it isn't right just to make themselves happy and to have a good time. This era is actually really messed up, it seems like there isn't any structure with our society that everyone is just going with the flow of what's “in”.
FDR felt that the American government was going to fix all the problems of the people and make their lives improve over time. His ‘New Deal’ plan really stresses this fact. He knew that the people could accomplish anything with just a little coaxing from their leader. Hoover thought that their needed to be less government control and the people had to do some things for themselves. He wanted them to be able to fix their problems themselves and let the government do more important jobs and have to worry about them less.
Exposing violence in the media teaches bad morals and is not supported by the greater good of society. In the show “24”, the main character, Jack Bauer is effective and powerful in saving America, by using torturing methods. The message sent is, “..as long as the tortures manage to choose the correct victim…those who know a lot and those who know a little spill... information within seconds after pain starts-which is not a common occurrence”(Cusac 140). The show makes scenarios look so unrealistic, that you can’t determine what the truth is and what is make belief. Some may say, “Its unfair competition.
On the contrary, slowly analyzing our American Government and seeing its policies also contributes as a national concern for the people around us. Government creates conversions, stability, and admissions for different types of citizens. To clarify, economics and fundamentals is the triple-beam balance in our world that holds us steady. Scholars need to realize that supplemental information in today’s world could provide leads to entrepreneaurship and career buliding. Government is a huge thing and could be detrimental if taking lightly to promote national
