Contrary to those principles, the Barbary War, where for nearly three years the American military exercised a naval blockade of the North African coast wasted millions of dollars of the people’s money and unconstitutionally violated states rights and strict constructionist principles, in their place asserting an alien un-Republican nationalism. While the evidence found in Jefferson’s political and military dealings helps us understand how Madison and him “out Federalized the Federalists”, an examination of Jefferson’s economic policies truly proves that in the words on one historian he was the “American Sphinx”.
Through his involvement, he played a critical role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the South and other areas of that nation. On August 28, 1963, King gave an emotional and political speech for freedom “I Have a Dream...” He used symbolism, metaphorical imagery, repetition, emotive and controlled language and other powerful techniques to create an impact on the audience. King’s speech begins with a very strong use of language that creates a logical and emotional appeal on his audience. His logical appeal is created when stating that the Emancipation Proclamation gave “hope to millions of Negro slaves who had seared in the flames of withering injustice.” Throughout his opening sentences he creates an emotional appeal by his emotive language; he describes that it has been one hundred years after the Emancipation Proclamation but still “the life of the Negro is still badly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination.” King uses symbolism and metaphorical references to convince his audience that there must be equality for all races. A clear example of this is shown when King is comparing the “sacred obligation” that has been given to the Negros as a “bad check, a check which has come back marked i... ... middle of paper ... ...the most significant moment in this speech occurs towards the conclusion.
Obama on Racial Unity In the 2008 speech “A More Perfect Union” Senator Barack Obama illustrates himself as a diverse and benevolent leader to repeal said exigencies of him being anti-American and win over American votes. Obama constructs ethos by mentioning he has experienced the luxuries and poverties this world has to offer, attracting rich and poor alike. The tone used by Obama experiences many shifts to appeal to the diverse audience and win their understanding that he hopes can turn into a vote. The speech ultimately achieved its purpose as it aided Obama achieving his utmost goal; becoming President of The United States of America. The Senator builds up his ethos by using many flashbacks and his experience with both rich and poor: black and white.
But how can effectiveness be justified in today’s standards? A dictionary definition claims effectiveness, “the degree to which objectives are achieved and the extent to which targeted problems are solved.” Every president always has a national agenda, a list of goals they want to accomplish during their term as president. Our current two-term President Barack Obama inherited an unstable and unsustainable economy that put him to the test many times. Many people still demean him because of the national debt. Some may even argue that the President, the symbolic image of the nation’s pride and economic change, has only led to unemployment and pushed our nation over the fiscal cliff.

(Goldstein and Wapner, 2006) The Republican presidential contenders consider global warming as a hoax or, at best, make light of its importance. The most vocal denier is Rick Perry, the Texas governor and longtime friend of the oil industry, who claim that climate change is an unproven theory created by "a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects." Unfortunately, because of the economic downturn, addressing climate change has become less urgent for voters but that doesn’t mean that the issue is going away. The nation badly needs a candidate with a logical, disciplined national strategy.
The oil industry is making an immense profit. Oil companies that secured leases in 1998 and 1999 haven't been paying royalties, even though a bill signed in November of 1995 required royalties to be paid in proportion to the oil profit made. An example of a company profiting because of this is "West Texas Inte... ... middle of paper ... ...ational security. As voters, and future voters, we need to vote for candidates that understand the colossal importance of using renewable energy and offshore drilling to start a recovery of the economy and keep America as a power figure. It will cost billions of dollars for research and perfecting offshore drilling, but it is a long-term investment that will have an enormous payout.
Jefferson believed the creation of the National Bank was unconstitutional. In the article “Jefferson and the Louisiana Purchase” the author argues, “While it a National Bank was not expressly mentioned in the Constitution, Hamilton felt that the elastic clause (Art I., Sect. 8, Clause 18) gave the government the power to create such a body. Jefferson completely disagreed. He felt that all powers given to the National Government were enumerated.
King paints his speech with vivid " theme" words, quotations, and allusions leaving the listener with a striking and unifying message. It is 1963* and one of the most historic demonstrations for equality has just taken place. Martin Luther King Jr.'s setting is the memorial of the President who has defeated the Southern states and the issues of slavery once before. In the introduction, King effectively uses a play on words, "Five score years ago" to not only salute former President Lincoln's famous address and nod at the fact that one hundred years ago the blacks were promised to be free. He begins with a narration that reminds us of a "Great American" that signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
With the beginning of industrialization in the United States, business owners here have been looking to the federal government for a helping hand not only to bail them out of trouble but also just to boost their profits. At a time when “children as young as nine and ten toiled 14-hour shifts” and “adolescent girls labored from six in the morning until midnight for three dollars a week”, the government has been in the business of helping the rich oppress workers by breaking up unions with federal troops (Parenti 64). World War I escalated the relationship between big business and the federal government. Defense and weapons contractors made vast amounts of profit from producing supplies for the war effort while the worker came home with very little. Instead of federal troops, courts were now being used to break up unions.
