Locke’s ideas helped created our form of government by calling separation of legislative and executive powers. Base on Obama’s actions Locke would agree that this bill is needed because he is ignoring his duty. However Locke’s idea of separation of powers is different from ours, given what he wrote, there is proof that he would be slide with those wanting to force the President’s hand in this issue. John Locke’s ideas of separation of power is a lot different from our idea. Locke believed in a limited monarch, and we clearly do not.
Politicians convince society that government has a constitutional obligation for the lifelong, paternalistic support and care of Americans. Regardless of effort, preparation, education, or work ethic, many believe that politicians should strip money and property from the rightful owners and use it to make the leeches of society more comfortable in their little self-made, ideological world. However, in reality, they enslave themselves to government and live their lives in fetid ghettos of their ow... ... middle of paper ... ...the next feel-good injection bears no resemblance to the Founders vision for this great land. The American dream is there for those who follow the history lessons of America and embrace the dream.

President Abraham Lincoln once said, “ America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”. This quote is timeless, and made me realize how important it is to maintain the freedoms set forth in the constitution because it is very unlikely America will ever be destroyed from outside means like modern terrorism. Instead we will decay from the inside by straying away from freedom and equality until the whole system collapses. Because of government corruption, economic inequality, and a corporation dominated free market I think it truly is the worst of times to be an American.
Intro: US Presidents have made it a goal during their term(s) in office to establish a good relationship with foreign countries and even try to improve upon existing connections with our allies. Some believe it is to prevent conflicts between the countries while others dispute that it is a threat assessment by the United States to pick and choose their friends and enemies. Preventing conflict between two democracies or countries that practice democracy is called Democratic Peace Theory. However, research has begun to show that Democratic Peace Theory is ineffective and needs to be brought to an end as a model for how international relations are formed or destroyed. Democratic Peace Theory needs to be abolished as a support for forming foreign policy between democracies because of the burden placed on both parties to come to an agreement but still stand proud and victorious as a country without conceding anything.
This book shows, very well, what the colonists had to go through to get their independence and how they had to do it. This book also had a very strong arguments and was convincing, I believe and agree with everything this author talks about. The colonies did what they had to do, which was obviously break away from Great Britain. They did not need Great Britain to protect them anymore, in fact, Britain was hurting the colonies. With all of the taxation without representation and all of the other things going on, the colonies had no choice but to follow these rules; and this made them furious.
Add into the equation his treating of foreign terrorists as common criminals and a Congress that long ago abdicated its responsibilities of war, peace and border security; and we have a country sinking into an abyss that may never again rise to the world prominence and national security we have for so long taken for granted. Americans are no longer secure within our own borders, and our leaders are doing nothing to remedy the circumstances; rather, they are doing everything in a reactive, politically correct manner that is causing greater damage. Congress allows the President to write his own laws while they shrug with their indifference. It is utterly essential that we unite, coordinate, and network with conservatives across this great land. Every group regardless of size, location, name or political party affiliation, must come together as one conservative voice at ... ... middle of paper ... ...t do is organize the turnout at the polls.
Mustapha Mond is the most powerful character in Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Mond keeps scientific and historic documents from reaching the people. Mond believes that science, religion, and art threaten Brave New World if let out, but religion would be bane of Brave New World. The moral dilemma of monogamy would be the bane of Brave New World itself. If the people of Brave New World found out about religion the people would learn the moral dilemma of “every one belongs to everyone else”(Huxley 31).
Ultimately, Nineteen Eighty Four has made me realize the immense power that governments have to control their people. I believe this is the case because as a civilization, we are dependent on our government. If it were to turn on us, we would be left like lost vulnerable children separated from their parents. We would have no direction, no security and no hope. Even though this is the harsh truth I have also learnt that this overdependence and vulnerability can be avoided by the promotion of self-expression and individuality.
These actions blocked American citizens from enriching and expanding the young nation. In Washington’s farewell address, he tried to persuade future presidents to keep the United States in isolationism, defined as “ a policy of avoiding political or military agreements with other countries” (Hart 163). President Madison was justified in shifting American foreign policy from isolationism to intervention because he was helping his nation become a wealthy and respected country, rid itself of its problems, and make its national pride soar. Although we should always aim for peace, in this case, war was the best choice. In Jefferson’s, Adams’s, and Madison’s presidencies, they all attempted diplomatic solutions and failed every time.
For starters, The American Revolution was waged as a war of last resort because the colonists could not execute any more plans to make truce with Britain peacefully. According to John Dickinson in The Olive Branch Petition the colonists wrote, “We therefore beseech your Majesty, that your royal authority and influence may be graciously interposed to procure us relief from our afflicting fears and jealousies, occasioned by the system before-mentioned, and to settle peace through every part of our Dominions, with all humility submitting to your Majesty’s wise consideration, whether it may not be expedient, for facilitating those important purposes, that your Majesty be pleased to direct some mode, by which the united applications of your faithful
