Every four years, the US will have a presidential election for the next person who will run the country. Our representatives and senators are elected by the people of their state and are supposed to represent the majority in the presidential election as set by the founding fathers. It was not an easy task for our founding father to create a document that would last a lifetime. With the Constitutional Convention of 1787, there was a great debate over whether the Articles of Confederation should be revised or abandon.
The presidential election in 2016 has definitely been one to remember. A woman won a nomination and Donald Trump became the presidential nominee for the United States of America. Chris Matthews, who is a political commentator, wrote a book titled Hardball: How Politics is Played Told by One Who Knows the Game. This book lists several maxims, or rule of conduct, that he believes politicians use the most. A few of them seem obvious, like positioning or keeping your enemies in front of you.
Nixon also used national security issues to gain prominence in Congress which led him to serve as president and vice president. To secure a seat, Nixon used many core properties of McCarthyism in his presidential campaigns. Along with the core properties of McCarthyism, Nixon supported the investigation into Alger Hiss, like McCarthy, in order to gain his political debut and soon, he became a young political star. While Nixon ran for re-election, he came to the realization that his old simplistic ways of appealing to the public would not work anymore. In Congress, Nixon was able to secure a Senate seat by implying that the opposing candidate was a Communist sympathizer because she voted against the HUAC.
“My purpose is to be president,” Kasich responded. “And those who are wondering about Donald Trump, if I go head to head with him in Ohio, I beat him by 18 points. I intend to go all the way, I intend to be the nominee, and I intend to beat Hillary Clinton by more than 11 points.” Kelly pressed on to question Kasich’s candidacy asking if he stealing votes from candidates that had a better chance of beating Trump. “I’m not sure who those people are but people counted me out, they said you know, he will never get to New Hampshire and we went to New Hampshire and we finished second,” Kasich said.

Utkarsh Sharma Ms. Harris English 3.1 21 September 2015 Rhetorical Analysis The Democratic Party candidate election of 2008 was a historically significant event for the people of the United States of America.

When people go to the voting booth and fill out the ballot with their candidate of choice, many people think they are directly voting for that candidate. However, America uses electoral votes/electoral college that has 538 electors distributed throughout the states, who determine the winner of the presidency. So what are Americans voting for? Why is such a system in place when we have popular vote? In the past, the most efficient way to give citizens around the country an opportunity to vote was the electoral college, or so the founding fathers thought.
The Anchor Baby Debate The anchor baby debate is gaining momentum as this year’s presidential election debates are gearing up in the political news. The term anchor baby is typically an offensive term that refers to a child that is born in the United States to a noncitizen mother and granted birthright citizenship. Almost every candidate has had to address this controversial topic in some shape, form, or fashion. The thoughts on what should be done about the law and the use of the phrase differ among the candidates.
But, they will have another role as well. Once a year after the election the American public will be given an opportunity to vote on how the president is doing with a simple up or down vote. If less than 45% of America gives the president a thumbs up, they are bumped out of office (good-bye have a nice life) and the vice-president becomes president and the third most popular candidate becomes vice-president. And this happens every year, giving the president motivation to give it their all, for all six years if they want to keep their job.
Democracy in the United States is reliant upon its citizen’s ability to act as an informed electorate and vote for leaders through a critical process of due diligence. In an election as momentous as the presidency, various influences can give voters a false representation of their political endorsements. A central role in this notion is the ability to subconsciously prime voter perspectives and impact election outcomes using various forms of rhetoric. Politicians employ both forensic (judicial) and political (deliberative) rhetoric to attack the credibility of their opponents based on past injustices and persuade voters to take specified action in the future.
