Ninety-two of the sitting one-hundred Senators voted for the law. This is because military spending has always been supported in Congress due to the fear of political attacks. If a Senator voted no no this law because they believed the money could better spent on free college, an advertisement could be ran stating that the Senator in question does not support the military because they voted no on this law. Consequently, politicians in America are in a stranglehold, forced to vote to spend money on things
We have to stop this hatred in our country because this country is based on freedom, peace, and home of immigrants. When we start naming and group each other , we might take as a joke, but we are racially discriminating one another race. A person offending or joking of an race does not try to know the person as a human being. They go off what they have heard or seen on television that 's why I believe the media has two sides. In this year 's election one of the
One reason that I believe Donald Trump is infringing on human rights is because he wants to build a wall on the border with Mexico. The wall goes against human rights because it slows the flow of illegal, but suffering immigrants who would later become citizens of the United
Learning from the shortcomings of others can benefit others in the pursuit of peaceful living. A majority of the American public do not want the Confederate monuments removed from public display (NYPOST 8/17/17). In a survey conducted by the Nypost news team and PBS, 62 percent of people did not want the Confederate statues removed from public display. Twenty-seven percent of people found the Statues offensive and wanted them removed. The majority of United States citizens that do not want the statues removed claim to reject racist ideology.
For instance, it could decrease illegal immigration, if the 14th amendment wouldn’t allow them to. According to Center for Immigration studies “ Disposing birthright citizenship would decrease the incentive to come and bring spouses and other family members with them.” Another pro if the 14th amendment was ratified and changed would be saving money on health care and social service. Some cons of birth tourism are it punishes the children who are born. They have no control over where they are born due to the parents interest in taking them elsewhere. Another con is that the population is increasing so they’re has to be more money funded to these individuals.
Kyle gingerich 7th grade Claymont schools The ballot is stronger than the bullet -Abraham Lincoln. Although people say that voting is not worth doing, voting can change the world. It is important to vote because 1 vote can change a lot of things like voting for president or voting for your town is important. You can also vote for your right to do something. If you don’t vote you may not get what you want that is why they made voting so we can vote for what we want.
Another important change in racism is marriage has changed. White people would never marry a black person, now fully one quarter of whites say they would marry a black. Lastly, in 1972 two thirds of whites said homeowners should be able to discriminate against blacks when selling their homes. That then dropped to 28 percent in 2008. These are many examples of how racism has changed, and obviously it has gotten better in different ways.
One of the many reasons why people argue about minorities, and or race and ethnicity being poorly portrayed in Hollywood, is because that’s how people are going to accept that specific race. Although some defender argues that people do not judge a race by the things they see in a movie, I couldn’t disagree more. A movie or a TV show gives these certain characters a voice, and if they themselves are accepting the negative things, then others will. In that situation it causes fear. I strongly believe the entertainment industry uses race and ethnicity as a leverage for more
However, just the fact that the majority agreed on a law doesn’t mean that it’s just. Sometimes, refusing to obey specific laws aids democracy as it ensures that just laws are being made. Through out history, there have been many cases of people breaking the law for the better good of society. In the 1850’s, American abolitionists overlooked the Fugitive Slave Law, letting slaves run away from their Masters. Also, in 1872, Susan B. Anthony had voted before women were allowed to vote, which ignited the Women’s Rights Movement protests for voting and changed the law for the
Lincoln is more of a fight for the 13th amendment and offers us an idea on how Republicans struggled to pass the vote. They needed twenty percent of Democrats and all the republicans. Even getting the republicans to support the amendment was a challenge. However, we fail to see how the African American is playing a role in this movie, they appear in the background while white men give them their rights. After a long period of negotiations, President Lincoln was able to pass the 13th amendment under a congress that didn’t have southern representation.
In other words, Republicans are claiming that fraudulent voting is an issue in the electoral process and having to provide further identification such as a photo ID is a solution. “Democrats say the changes have little to do with fraud prevention and more to do with placing obstacles in the way of possible Democratic voters, including young people and minorities” (Lizette A1). In other words, Democrats do not see this is a real issue because there is “scant evidence of voter-impersonation fraud” (Lizette A1) and say that Republicans are just using this as a better sounding defense in order to accomplish more voter discrimination towards particular groups of
First, it must be understood exactly why Conservatives should care about what the Left thinks. The Left has constantly been trying to portray conservatism as bigoted and racist. Not saying that Trump is bigoted and racist, but Trump gives the Left a concrete example to use against conservatives. A majority of Trump’s supports are not racists, but there is a small sub-sect of his followers that are very “loud” and are, indeed, white nationalists. Given that the Left can look at Trump and say to independents or other potential future conservatives, “Do you really want to vote for, join a party, or subscribe to an ideology that really is racist and bigoted, as proven by Donald Trump’s presidency/candidacy?” No!
The Federal government declared two years of registry to make it harder for immigrants to become American citizens. Federalists wanted to control aliens, so they made the sedition acts. Immigrants wanted religious freedom, economic security, land ownership, and education and social advancement. Everyone wanted the American Dream. The American party was against Catholics and Eastern Europeans, so immigration slowed down and people did not feel
Living in this beautiful country I have come to realize that our government feels as if they need to make up for our past political parties mistakes. Although they had good intentions, it has only made it harder only the majority of the population. America is unknowingly judgmental towards any select person that has a belief or opinion that is not supported at the current time. As an example people have seen the harsh behavior gay people have faced over the last hundred years so they decided to make their beliefs the most important.
The possibilities of Donald Trump winning the election are low because his votes can be drastically affected by his previous negative comments. This implies that Trump has been targeting people with racial negative comments that affect the whole United States. “The American people are not going to elect a president who insults Mexicans, Muslims, women, veterans, insulting virtually everybody who is not like Donald Trump.” (Bernie Sanders) This statement supports my opinion in which Donald Trump’s election can come to an end with his discriminating comments. The following points out the possibilities of Donald Trump winning the election are low because other candidates have a higher demand of votes. “I’m the only candidate, “she said,” who has
