As the roaring twenties reached their end the battle against alcohol in the United States is just arising to a turning point. With serious controversy over the Volstead Act the country was greatly divided. There was also the extreme rising occurrences of crime, the creation of gangs and a newly established, unorganized criminal justice system. Prohibition was a disaster across America and the more reforment from the government just made things worse.

In his untitled gun control and gun rights cartoon, Chris Britt establishes an accusatory tone using critical irony and a macabre diction to condemn the national threat disregarded by the Republican Party for ignorantly advocating unregulated licensing of guns. Chris Britt evidently displays, in his work, a frustrated sentiment towards the American federal government, specifically addressing the Republican Party. Deliberately, Chris Britt labeled the gun store as “GOP Guns and Gore” and highlighting that the store is “Open 24-7”. Bluntly, Britt specified “GOP” (“Grand Old Party”), interchangeably corresponding to the Republican Party, to emphasize his personal disdain against their party platform. Indisputably, through irony, Chris Britt exhibits
The drama of what happened subsequently is a powerful story of a nation in turmoil. The unhinged assassin 's half-delivered strike shattered the fragile national mood of a country so recently fractured by civil war and left the wounded president as the object of a bitter behind the scenes struggle for power over his administration, over the nation 's future, and, hauntingly, over his medical care. A team of physicians administered shockingly archaic treatments, to disastrous effect. As his condition worsened, Garfield received help by Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, worked around the clock to invent a new device capable of finding the bullet. Meticulously researched, epic in scope, and pulsating with an intimate human focus and high-velocity narrative drive, The Destiny of the Republic will stand alongside The Devil in the White City and The Professor and the Madman as a classic of narrative
Dinesh’s D’Souza’s Ronald Reagan is a biography recounting the life, acting career, and political career of President Ronald Reagan.

He also destroyed the National Bank and authorized the Specie Circular. Because of these infringements on the rights of the people, Andrew Jackson was not a champion of the common man; the nickname “King Andrew,” from his opponents was accurate. When he was elected president, Andrew Jackson felt that he needed to remove John Quincy Adams’ appointees from office. To him, the clear answer was to replace them with his own followers and friends, creating a government where only one political party was effectively represented by presidential appointments. This use of the spoils system put people who were not qualified in powerful positions simply as a reward for supporting Jackson.

made a mistake. President Nixon would be the first American President to actually lose a war. Despite his actions against our government, John Kerry went on to be an elected Senator from the State of Massachusetts in 1996. His well-publicized history of being a radical supporter of the Vietnamese communists and possibly guilty of war crimes had no effect on the voters. Others believe that our moral decline began in the 1940’s and 1950’s with the Presidents Woodrow Wilson and President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Brown).

Kevin Chen March 1st, 2018 Book Review: 1984 by George Orwell I. Summarize The political critical novel 1984 written by George Orwell portrays a hypothetical totalitarian society dominated by the Party (symbolized as Big Brother) after World War II where humanity (including both physical and psychological freedom) has been eliminated due to strict hierarchy levels in the nation of Oceania. Inhabitants throughout Oceania showed no existence of humanity, as their government took away their fundamental rights such as freedom and sex. Additionally, the Party took control of everyone’s mindset by replacing ‘what’s true’ into ‘what’s absurd’ as well as ‘Modern English’ into ‘newspeak’. Slogans such as “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance
To have reached adulthood in modern America is to have lived a life haunted by the political trials and fibrillations of Richard Nixon: Commie-hunter in the postwar Congress, globe-trotting veep to an unappreciative Dwight Eisenhower, sweaty television debater overcome by a cool Jack Kennedy, loser even for governor of California, he was nonetheless propelled into a melodramatic presidency in 1968 by the war in Vietnam and the implosion of the Democratic Party. He was and always would be with

This fact, coupled with the GOP attacks on Trump, reveal a Republican party that is embracing a voting block that ignorantly or knowingly supports the immoralities of the left. The GOP will never capture even a luke-warm percentage of the Hispanic vote regardless of all the shameful pandering and treasonous affiliations with the left. Willful ignorance combined with the corruption of money and power have joined to form a party no longer in touch with the constituents responsible for their political appointments. Gone are the days of Reagan conservatism. However, a light has flickered to life at the end of the tunnel with Trump 's continued success.
