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.
Electoral College is Wrong The Electoral College is the name given to a group of electors who are nominated by political activists and party members within the states. The electoral college really isn't necessary and should be abolished. There are numerous reasons why this is so. With the Electoral College in affect third parties don't have a chance to become the president, which isn't fair. Electors are expected to be honest but in the past our country has caught some untruthful ones.
Tompkins is incorrect about Johnson because he was a bad president, no matter the time, or congressman in charge. Johnson let his personal vendetta against aristocrats and view of African Americans cloud his judgment. Also he did not work with moderates even though they desired to work with him, which would have given him more support in Congress. Plus he knowingly got himself impeached and did not care. A President should put the country before himself and the presidency also requires him to provide stability of the Government.
In his essay titled “Don’t Vote!,” Klassen makes arguments of why people should not vote in this year’s election. Klassen feels as if our government is criminal, the majority rule is unfair, the president is a tyrant, and we do not have freedom. This however is a tragedy, since democracy and our freedom to vote is part of what defines our country. Although I do not agree with Klassen on many of his claims I do agree with him when he states, “Americans have always been busy people preoccupied with their own lives and they pay remarkably little attention to what our full-time political government is really doing.” Thi... ... middle of paper ... ... position of senator by one vote. Also in the 1960 presidential election, one additional voter per precinct in Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey and Texas would have elected Richard M. Nixon instead of John F. Kennedy as president (http://www.insuredemocracy.com/vote.htm).
It totally freaks me out. I really do not know why either. I have never liked talking about politics or listening to politics. Just like I do not care about sports on TV either. I feel the reason more people are not involved is because they do not believe in our politicians either and/or the system of voting.
I am part of a dying breed. I am in my twenties, I vote, and I am politically informed. Most of my peers can't even name their representatives, let alone get off the couch to vote. This unfortunate fact is due to many reasons, but primarily because young adults are dissociated from society, and do not see democratic participation as essential to the survival of our country. Another important reason is that corporate interests run the United States government, and young people see individual efforts such as voting to be futile in the face of these powerful opponents.
Donald Trump has been a bad influence to the United States that doesn’t deserve to be president. The entire thing he has done during his running doesn’t show that is able to be president. Trump is an arrogant person that doesn’t deserve to be president and doesn’t deserve to be able to run a country; he is acting like a child he is not mature to run for
Not to our kids, families, society, nor to other countries, which in turn leads us to believe he is not fit to be commander in chief. Children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly, all are groups that make up our country and each look up to the president as a leader and conductor to what is right. Other countries, whether it be our allies, our enemies, impoverished or underdeveloped nations see America as the Land of the great, a strong country with endless opportunity. If a leader such as, Donald Trump, came into power it would shatter this persona and we would lose the respect of other nations along with the citizens that make up our own. Time after time Trump has given us many reasons to believe he is not a role model for anyone, a leading example is his lack of respect for women.
In conclusion, Barack Obama has not had what it takes to get the country back in the shape it needs to be in. It is understandable that he came into office of a country that had already been messed up by presidents before, but he has offered nothing but empty promises to fix it with. President Obama has failed the United States with multiple aspects: Obamacare, allowing the NSA to spy on normal citizens, not getting beneficial proposals passed, lying to America on multiple occasions, and being a hypocrite. His main failure as a president would be lying to the citizens of the country. In one of his famous speeches, Barack Obama said it was “time for a change.” This probably is not the change he anticipated.
Our country is still suffering deeply from an economic recession and currently has extremely unstable relationships with foreign countries. In this era, the United States (U.S.) is the only remaining superpower, so you will think that America would improve its own economy and foreign relations. Truth is our country suffers from both domestic and foreign problems that remain unsolved. There are budget cuts in almost every area or our government and the government are even considering higher taxes. These domestic problems are still no comparison to the hatred many foreigners have for our government.
