Many people all around the country probably won’t certainly agree with the author of A More Perfect Constitution by Larry Sabato. Larry Sabato main idea was that the United State Constitution was outdated and needed to be reform somehow. He believed a change to the Constitution will going to be really hard due to the massive number of traditional political conservatives that the country had. Sabato explain that these conservatives’ people will oppose to the idea of different view of the Constitution by saying “the Constitution is just good as it is”. The conservatives’ support only their views as the Constitution was just fine the way it is, and it was original because that was the intent of the founders in how to interpret the Constitution.
In later decades, in the War of 1812, America would try to stop trade with Britain again using a method called embargo, which would not be effective because they did not have the debt that the War had caused. Therefore, the reason that the actions of the colonists worked is because of the strain that the War had put on Britain’s
This is saying that the people that support the flag want the nation to break apart again. As Allen Guelzo states, “The flag of treason should be suppressed.” This is a good point, but it is not true. As chip Reid says. “The flag is an important part of an educational experience intended to inspire Americans to learn about their past.” This shows us that people are just bitter and not capable of handling the truth that the whole slavery idea was long ago and now that flag means nothing but something that you see on
After the American Revolutionary War, many Americans were opposed to the idea of a strong central government. They saw the idea of a strong centralized government as a gateway back into the familiar tyrannical government and abuse of power that they had just fought so hard to free themselves of. The idea of creating a new Constitution was unnecessary to some because the Articles of Confederation were already in place. The non-supporters of the newly proposed Constitution called themselves “Anti- Federalist.” Naturally, many of the supporters of the new Constitution felt that it was very much needed and they felt as if the Articles of Confederation were not strong enough to functionally run the government. The “federalists,” or supporters of the proposed Constitution, wanted to
Living in a democratic country is a privilege considering, we are not controlled by one, rather the members of a state have a say. Without unity, democracy may be at risk because citizens may opt out of democratic engagement. “Isolation Bad for Democracy” written by Tom Sandborn, covers topics on how this dilemma has various solutions. During these modern times, our economy is constantly fluctuating causing people to move, following their work. Socially, we may feel connected to our peers, but when it comes to reality there is a strong disconnection between human interactions.
He claims that the WWI was “Armageddon” or the end of the world because it was the most destructive war ever witnessed by humanity. He also says that because it was a great war, the criminals and heroes cannot be found in such a war. However, these features are not what we saw in the past wars because in the old wars, there are heroes, such as Fredrick, Napoleon, Hannibal who physically lead their soldiers in the front lines of the army, but this cannot be seen in this war because of the decline of individual’s role in the new war that the process is a cooperative affair rather than individual. Moreover, this new feature is the reason of not having “loin-hearted warriors” because if the leader is away from his soldiers, then who will motivate them and lead them physically to do their job. As he mentions that it is not a stock market for the generals to do their job far away from the center, but it is war and they needs to be at the center of the battlefield and seriously direct their army.
And best of all, these are the people that know that one must fight for their own rights, for they will not be willingly granted to them. One may say that these protests are unnecessary due to their insignificance towards the fact that Donald Trump is, and will, be the President of the United States in January. However, these are the very ideas which Martin Luther King Jr. and Henry Thoreau both denounced. We mustn’t look at the immediate outcome protests may cause, but the future outcomes they may cause. These protests will be looked upon in the future by historians, and they will be praised even more if Donald Trump’s presidency produces a negative outcome.
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). Letting fear affect our opinions will lead us and the rest of the globe to block Syrian Refugees. Fear has not only played a role in today’s refugee crisis, but of a similar crisis during World War Ⅱ, where Ishaan Tharoor of the Washington Post exemplifies, “Consider this 1938 article in the Daily Mail, a
Oceania is constantly at war with either “Eurasia or Eastasia……. Oceania was at war with one of these Powers” (Orwell, 17). The use of the phrase “one of these powers” shows that members of the Outer Party aren’t exactly sure who Oceania is at war with which makes it easy to assume that there might not even be a war at all. The Inner Party attempts to prevent globalisation in fear that it will take away from their patriotism. Hate against the other continents is extremely exaggerated to the people of Oceania which allows them to dismiss any international integration, therefore dismissing globalisation.
Peace cannot exist when war is a threat. In 1984, people feel endangered by bombs and Eurasian soldiers, when the actual danger is the Party. It is true that war may encourage nationalism in a country and also unite people but it stimulates more chaos and agony than union. "Freedom is slavery" also acts as an unconscious disheartenment for anyone who might contemplate seeking freedom. “freedom is slavery” is saying that people who follow their will is not free, because they are not protected from their own unsuccessfulness they get from bad decisions.
Compulsory voting has proven to better represent the young, poor, and minorities who tend not to vote. However, it is not cost effective. The labor involved and the cost to pay for the jurisdiction and congressmen to pass it is extremely high. America would lose more money a year on this system and further drive down already struggling sectors such as social security and education by being forced to draw even more of their finds a way. As it stands now the concept is not constitutional, an altar to the first and twenty-fourth amendments would be required at least, and that would still not guarantee it to pass.
Even though, originally, George Washington and the framers of our Constitution were against “factions”, political parties soon sprung up over the course of our nation’s history. This is due to the fact that people with the similar beliefs group together, and soon enough, political parties formed and became a staple part of our government in the United States. However, this is not the way it has to be. Political parties are beginning to become irrelevant in the current state of our nation. Now more than ever, political parties are not necessary because they produce an unresponsive government, create little change, and cause internal corruption.
Civil Liberties Some would argue that people would rather have security instead of liberty. But if that were true, why would we risk our lives in a war to ensure our freedoms? It’s because our rights are some of the most important things in our lives that some of us would die for. However, ever since the tragic incident of 9/11, National security has slowly been chipping away at our liberties. National security has altered several of our amendments taking away our freedom of speech, freedom of unreasonable search and seizures, freedom of being held without charge, and much more.
Many people debate on subjects that never get resolved. Debates, such as the economy never get fixed. But debates are just one of the reasons the U.S. is not a democracy. All in all, the voting statistics, gun debates, and police brutality are some of the main reason why the US isn’t a democracy. Voting is a good thing for our government.
Allowing for a balanced and stable government. While it is currently still a function system in our government, there is a major flaw that causes problems depending on what parties are in control. During Obama 's second term this has been a problem because even if he vetoed a particular bill, the legislative branch was able to override that veto. Or the Government shutdown occurring in 2013, because the legislative branch refused to move ahead with funding. Leaving a period of time where the government was essentially in a
