I’d read biographies of the founding fathers and world leaders, as well as start my own writings explaining history. I’d have essays filled with why World War II was so close, what happened between Russia and America, and why we had the Great Depression. When I’m twenty-one, I will be able to vote for the next election. My ideas I’ve shared with the world, and the massive amounts of education I’ve went through will have me prepared for our next presidential election. My vote, along with many others, will be important, and could possibly get my ideas for America implemented into the system.
Conscription, also known as drafting, is a law that the government made for people to go to war. This law stated that anyone who was old enough and was able to fight in the war had to go, whether they wanted to go or not. People thought conscription was very beneficial, I on the other hand disagree. Personally, I do not think conscription is a good idea. It is unfair to force people to go to war, by forcing men to enlist in the army, the army force will not be as strong as it could be, and if conscription occurs, there’s an emotional toll to fighting.
I could have gone to ROTC for example and still had a chance to experience some normal civilian college life. I also could have attended a normal civilian college, graduated, and then gone to Officer Candidate School for 12 weeks and fulfilled my duty to serve, sigh… But I chose West Point because I had to Optimize and chose the best feasible option at my disposal.

Even though he was born and raised in America, Thomas Jefferson consistently supported immigrants' rights to relocate to nations where they felt they would have the lives they wanted. He wrote numerous letters to immigrants and other politicians on the topic, maintaining that it was a right that could not be revoked. In a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, Albert Gallatin, in 1806 Thomas Jefferson stated: I hold the right of expatriation to be inherent in every man by the laws of nature, and incapable of being rightfully taken from him even by the united will of every other person in the nation. If the laws have provided no particular mode by which the right of expatriation may be exercised, the individual may do it by any effectual and unequivocal act or declaration.

What should we bargain in our education and what content should we write into the textbook to prevent the following generation from waging war? Concerning these enquires, which put forth by Virginia Woolf nearly a century ago, it seems the human race fails to give a satisfactory riposte. No matter how hard human beings have tried, war stays to be an inevitable matter.

If you come to America underprivileged or impecunious, then you should have the chance to turn that around through your hard work and determination. Every individual may have different perspective to what their American

The Syrian refugee crisis, a product of the civil war in Syria, has dominated headlines in the news recently. Even though there is support to have these migrants resettled, there is a major pushback against refugees going into Europe and the United States. This debate will get more heated with this being one of the main issues in the presidential campaign, with the opposition growing in numbers due to the recent terrorists attack However, the opposition 's arguments against Syrian Refugees can be boiled down to fear and ignorance. If our country listens to the fear spreading around the world today, then the people who will suffer will be the Syrian Refugees. Elizabeth Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, argues, “We face a choice, a choice to lead the world by example, or to turn our backs to the threats and suffering around us” , which clearly exposes the fact that if we succumb to fear, not only we will turn our back on the refugees, but so will many other countries (Warren Video).
