To gain faith back from the public, Congress had placed many restrictions on the government, based on the public’s opinion. The Watergate, Nixon Scandal affected America greatly. It led to the first time President of the United States of America had ever resigned. After Ford 's pardoning, it caused the nation to be conflicted. People lost confidence in their own government because of the thought that future Presidents may take advantage of their own power, just like Richard Nixon did.
On the domestic aspect, citizens were beginning a new chapter in which they did not trust the government. Stemming back to Lyndon B Johnson and the Credibility Gap of the Vietnam War, the most recent, most devastating attitude change surrounded the Watergate Scandal and the aftermath. During Nixon’s presidency, he was attempting to bug the Democratic Party headquarters located in the Watergate Hotel. While his henchmen were placing the bugs, they were caught, thus causing a huge controversy amongst Americans. Although Nixon attempted to cover up his ties to the break in, it eventually came out that he ordered it to be done.
Khan has given Mr. Trump exactly what he needs, another “personal attack” story that will dominate the news cycle. When Mr. Khan and his wife took the stage last week during the Democratic Convention, the words of his speech and image of grieving parents who made the ultimate sacrifice froze the crowd. The moment produced raw emotion mixed with a personal politicized attack on Donald Trump. Mr. Khan attacked Trump on his proposed “Muslim ban” and questioned Trump’s respect for minorities. Based on Trump’s immigration stance, Khan asked if he’d ever read the constitution and “gladly” offered him[Trump] a personal copy of it.
The president-elect Donald Trump has expressed his belief on Muslims by calling for a ban on all Muslims entertaining the US. The number of reports of racist and anti-religious incidents around the country since the election have spiked, showing how the words of public figures have a large hold on US communities. Since the election more than 700 reports of hate crimes

In recent years, the U.S. Senate has been embroiled in a countless number of filibusters which have a long history in the U.S. Congress. To supporters of the filibuster, such political procedures play an important role in a democratic society. They believe that the filibuster embodies the spirits of democracy to protect the minority from oppression in the United States. Reformers or skeptics of the filibuster, on the other hand, believe that filibusters sometimes severely hinder the operations of the government. Although people have witnessed many filibusters in history, the number of filibusters in the past few years surprised and infuriated many in America.
When we lead ourselves to believe our illusions, we can find ourselves trapped in an unrealistic perception of life. These illusions are attempts to distract ourselves from the reality that we are not satisfied with life. When these illusions turn out to be false, we often attack those who revealed the illusion to us. This is perhaps to hide our anguish, and feelings of inadequacy. These illusions are almost always damaging to us; however, to view life in a realist perspective is often too hard.
A stain in one’s name is a serious dishonor. Rumors, as well as wrongful actions, affect how the world sees us and how we see the world. Thus human beings are victims of their own reputation. To avoid this, one tends to use pride as a shield. However, instead of protecting us, pride hurts us even more by impeding us from solving our issues.
Stereotyping is actually more serious than we thought and it is becoming a major problem in our society today. But what is stereotyping?

. In my view, the author is correct since people have been known to abuse their power, especially when they are in a position of power like a presidential candidate. More specifically, I believe that people convince others into following them and try to force their beliefs onto others, regardless of those who don’t share the same opinion. This can be seen in the lines “He used his vow to torture terrorism suspects as an applause line at a Las Vegas rally Monday night … And when a protester was ejected from the rally, Trump said, “I’d like to punch him in the face.””. This quote shows how some people don’t care about other people or their opinions if it gets in the way of their goals.
Syed Rizwan Farook -- who along with his wife, Tashfeen Malik, carried out the San Bernardino shooting massacre -- apparently was radicalized and in touch with people being investigated by the FBI for international terrorism, law enforcement officials said Thursday.

President Barack Obama hinted as much Thursday when he said that the attackers may have had "mixed motives." David Bowditch, assistant director in charge of the FBI 's Los Angeles office, told reporters Thursday that

President Carter was initially trusted by the public because he was considered an outsider in a political sense. He was a peanut farmer instead a crook, businessman on Wall Street. The American public tended to disagree with Carter’s foreign politics, such as handing over control of the Panama Canal to a dictator, and ending the Russian wheat deal to establish trade with the U.S.S.R. But the foreign event that made Carter look the weakest was his handling of the Iran Hostage Crisis where 52 American embassy officials were held hostage and tortured for 444 days in Tehran (History.com). Carter had first allowed a shah to seek medical attention in the U.S. after previously being banned from coming, after the shah was in America, Iranian students attacked the embassy and took hostages.
