Abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. Democrats are pro-choice meaning the choice is up to the woman. They strongly and clearly support Roe v. Wade, a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion, and a woman's right to make decisions concerning her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of capability to pay. Abortion is an intensely personal decision between a woman and anybody involved with her; there isn’t any say so for politicians or the government. Democrats also recognize that health care and educational classes help reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies and also reduce the need for abortions.
He has a semi-aggressive on the environment and clean energy, enforcing energy pollution standards and looking for new ways to get private investors to buy in on clean energy for the future. He believes foreign affairs should only be addressed when the US is directly involved or when our safety is at risk. There are only small differences between these two candidates. Both agree on Immigration and the restrictions that should be enforced. Alameel has a more aggressive approach to green energy than Pope does, with their major difference being that Pope wants less Washington in the senate, and Alameel wants to reconcile with the republicans and make the federal agenda work within the state.
", but are the laws that the Obama administration are attempting to make paving the way for Americans being disarmed in the future? In this paper, I hope to help the reader realize that Obama does not want to take our guns, but the actions we are taking now may not be the best decisions for the present or the future. The majority of the time that gun control is discussed, you will hear points made such as "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." Anti-gun-control lobbyists argue that Obama blames mass shootings, homicides, and suicides on guns. Is Obama placing blame in the wrong place?
Respect for God, life and other human beings. So how can this be bad for a society? It can't and that's why conservatives think it is most important in the function of a government (18-19) If America could live up to the religious standard, crime would be nonexistent. Of course, this is impossible, but it is the idea that drives conservative thinkers. Kristol points out that recent liberal attempts to slow down and decrease the crime rate h... ... middle of paper ... ... this article he mentioned that he would like to see Clinton succeed at decentralizing the government, creating a more democratic society, boosting the economy, and turning around the general aura and perspectives the people have for this country.
According to the Republican National Convention web site, republicans “believe government should tax only to raise money for its essential functions,” such as keeping citizens safe from criminals and maintaining basic infrastructure and national security (Barton). With this being said, taxes should not be increased, but instead decreased, to lead to more spending on the free market and less spending from the federal government. The money the government uses to spend comes from the taxpayers, and republicans believe that those taxpayers have the right to use their money in other ways, such as spending on the free market, or saving it for the future. In turn, the republican idea is that when the taxes on things are lower, the people will spend more, which creates a steady, stable economy. The Republican Party would like to see a de-regulated economy with less taxing and more spending.
Democrats believe that healthcare should be available to everyone, and should not have any pre-existing conditions that could hinder the average American. By providing it to everyone, Democrats hope that it will strengthen Medicare and reduce fraud, as well as close the holes that are left by the poor who cannot afford insurance. Republicans believe in quite the opposite. They want primarily for the healthcare reform to be abolished, and for more people to have their own insurance. Republicans also have many ideas, such as tax incentives and opening up insurance borders to try and help with insurance
Third party political organizations are an important part of the United States government. One of the major issues that the Constitution Party is currently against is gun control. In order to support their disagreement with the policy they call upon the 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights, which preserves citizens of the United States right to bear arms. According to their website, “armed people are free while disarmed people are slaves.” ( ). They believe that disarming or placing restrictions on having a firearm will result in a “total police surveillance state” and compares the policy to one that may have been imposed by dictators such as Stalin or Hitler.
Other factors that have affected my socialization to politics include how much politics is talked about at my home, the activity of my parents in politics, and even such things as television and newspapers. All of these information channels have had an affect on my views and opinions on politics and the issues that politics deals with. Some of these sources, however, have a greater affect on me than others do. The first political event I can remember was the 1996 presidential election. Back then I was a young little boy that was curious of the world and its purpose.
These recent legislations that government enacted have been to benefit voters. This research paper will go in depth with the main restrictions, laid out by either the states or the government, placed on different races in America, look at the over-comings of these limitations, and get a small glance at how voting is today and the acts the government put in place to help voters have a more pleasant voting experience. There is no “right to vote” written in the U.S. Constitution, therefore each state has taken the task of deciding who gets to vote into its own hands (The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, 1). The states set their own standards and evolved separately unless federal laws were passed pertaining to every state. This independence ultimately led to segregation between who had the privilege to vote and who did not.
Recently, this loophole has become the center of the gun control debate. Those who support gun control at gun shows (generally liberals) are saying that it is necessary to restrict the sale of firearms at gun shows because convicted felons and known terrorists are currently able to obtain weapons from gun shows. The other side of the debate (generally conservatives) contends that the enforcement of gun control at gun shows is a wasted effort and will only cause mounds of unnecessary paperwork. The National Rifle Association published “Anti-gun groups…” by Jim Pate on their website. This article quite obviously presents a strongly conservative view as would be expected from the NRA on issue of tougher gun control laws.
