However the Democratic population is around 70% but only 20% vote. Why aren’t people voting? Some say there is no valuable gain to vote when one person one vote isn’t really true. People believe this because Republicans have more access to resources than Democrats because of their wealthy stature. To my understanding these resources may aid candidates with publicity and networking benefits making their candidate more dominate than others running for
Because, Trump is not the usual type of candidate who runs for President. He is predominantly a businessman and TV celebrity. Moreover, there were more heavyweight candidates like Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, Lindsey Graham and so on. Initially the media mocked Trump as clown. But what was started as a joke, has become the most dramatic as well as exciting political campaigns in contemporary history.
It was mentioned that celebrities had more of an influence on personal issues they demonstrate through social media such as Twitter and Facebook, issues such as political views or current events. A Statistic showed that 58% of people interviewed believed that they are impacted and influenced by celebrities’ views on a certain political candidate, such as in this past election. Per the article it is also true that athletes tended to have more of an influence on people and their decision making on products and brands. For example, when we see Lebron
In The Outrage Industry, Berry and Sobieraj argue that the topic of media outrage is very multidimensional. Outrage is defined as avstrong reaction with anger, shock, or rage. In the political context, this could be how citizens react to a speech a politician has made, commentary between politicians aired on television, and or commentary between political journalists. America loves sensationalism. When the media broadcasts negatively charged reactions between political journalists or politicians, their ratings go up.
By capitalizing on the presence of Islamophobia, politicians have been able to renew and grow radical nationalism. The use of entrapment and unnecessary surveillance has created an environment where the Muslim-minority can be easily targeted and identified as a threat through damaging rhetoric. The rate of anti-Muslim crime over the past two decades has risen exponentially, leaving many to have to fend for themselves and fight injustice in a society where their mere presence is considered threatening. Rhetoric framing the privileged majority as somehow under attack has allowed politicians to enter wars and maintain damaging military presence while justifying the acts, stating that they are necessary for national security. It is clear that until political rhetoric completely shifts away from its pattern of marginalization and Muslim-focused hate, Islamophobia will remain a painful element of western society, leaving many to suffer the consequences of acts completely unrelated to
Does Nancy Pelosi ever listen to herself? She talks incessantly about income inequality, and one of her favorite topics of all time is talking about the privileged wealthy and all the breaks they get. Pelosi can be seen on countless hours of video clips calling for the top one percent of wealthy Americans to pay their fair share of taxes. In a true tale of the pot calling the kettle black, Pelosi is the richest woman in Congress AND the seventh wealthiest member of Congress overall. Her net worth exceeds $100 million, mainly because her husband Paul Pelosi is a very savvy venture capitalist and investor in real estate.
Anyone who was the right age during this boom had more opportunities than others to find success. Also, in 1935 it stated there was about 600 thousand less births which ultimately lead more opportunities with education, sports ambitions and career opportunities. The timing of being born in 1935 was what allowed so many more opportunities than that of someone born earlier or later. Upbringing also gives someone more chances at success. The way one is brought up is even more important to future success than how smart an individual might be.
On the other hand, tragedies can eventually create a better world for all mankind. The terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, were some of the worst attacks in history. At the same time, both President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair wrote a speech that motivated people to change the world for the greater good. They were able to turn a negative tragedy into a very powerful outlook on the future. Bush and Blair achieved their goals through the use of tone and rhetorical
Today, snap judgements that are based on a person’s skin color are made, in the form of racism. In the past 70 years, major improvements have been made upon curving racism, but it is still a problem in the world. Some people have labeled the current president of the United States, President Trump, as a successful businessman, and they use this judgement to justify their faith in him. Yet others label him as a racist bigot, and use this label to justify their protests against his jurisdiction over the United States. It has been over a century since Victor Hugo wrote Les Miserables, yet the problems that Hugo addresses still exist, albeit in a different form.
