In "Idiot Nation", Michael Moore openly and honestly expresses his feelings about the American system and education. He presents this as an essay, selected from his novel Stupid White Men, in which he submits his arguments as a political activist, concerned about the state of this nation. Moore spends most of his time in this selection, proving the sorry situation of American society. His arguments present a current issue that concerns the country today. He aims at politicians and other leaders to make the audience aware of all the corruptness in office.
President Roosevelt starts his speech out by comparing the present, then the year 1906, to former president George Washington 's time as leader. He compares and contrast the problems of the time. He then begins his discussion of “Pilgrim 's Progress”. It is about right after this that President Roosevelt produces an ethical appeal to his audience when he speaks, “There should be relentless exposure of and attack upon every evil man, whether politician or businessman, every evil practice, whether in politics, business, or social life.” With this statement, he is portraying to the crowd that he is not
The SOTU demonstrated this idea easily, as many democrats sat stoney faced as Trump continued his aggressive attacks on immigration. However, though some would say this represents the stereotypical SOTU, presidents do not often clap goadingly in the direction of the silent opposition. Trump’s rhetoric during his speech transcends just his sentences. Every action contributes to a speech’s overall effect. Trump clapping in democrat direction only increased the hostility of the atmosphere and made many around the U.S realize that his immature measures would not stop anytime soon.
Referring to such a defining moment in history were just one of the reasons why President Lincoln’s speech was so successful. The Gettysburg Address, one of the shortest, most quoted, and successful speeches in U.S. history was all due to the way President Lincoln was able to use ethos, logos, and pathos while presenting his speech to the audience at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Firstly, of the three modes of persuasion President Lincoln used his first was ethos. Ethos, are used to convince the audience with the author’s reliability or ethics. President Lincoln being well known as “Honest Abe” to countless individuals and being the President of the United States surely give him the credibility of having ethos in his speech.
Around the third act at the play at about 10:13 P.M. John Wilkes Booth then shoots President Lincoln in the head.

During the Civil War President Lincoln he wrote a letter saying even if he did not get re-elected he still wanted the Republican to keep on fighting to end the Civil War.
There were 3 major challenges in his life. Racism, betrayal and struggle. Today I wish to inform you about the challenges that faced the future 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama II. 4th August 1961, in Honolulu hospital in Hawaii, Barack Hussein Obama II was born having a white American mother and a black Kenyan father, very unusual for its time not to forget the heavy opposition from all parents involved.

On November 4th, 2008, former President Barack Obama made his victory speech to approximately 200,000 people at Grant Park and to those watching it through broadcast. In the year 2008, was a critical time period for the United States since the long lasting eight year presidency of George W Bush was ending and a new president was approaching the White House with new proposals. During the time George W Bush was in office, the United States was facing many problems, as with wars going on, financial crisis happening, and global warming being another factor. The country needed to be restored from all the monstrocity going on and become that strong country that once was. Barack Obama’s campaign and the succeeding election was the answer to all necessities in the country.
“But they didn 't have much to say about how they 'd make it right.” In this sentence President Obama talk about the negative strategy that the republicans and this leads President Obama to talk about more negative things that the republicans do for example on the next two lines. There are also many rhetorical pauses in the speech, not only when the citizens clap in their hands, but also when President Obama changes his subject in the speech. President Obama also uses rhetorical questions in the text for example page 3 line 8: “Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning.” In this sentence President Obama gives the citizens a question but he doesn’t really need an answer because he already knows it and he already know what to say, but when he uses this kind of rhetorical questions he makes the citizens think that he wants to hear their opinion and that their opinion is very important in America and that create a bond between the President and the citizens. With this speech President Obama creates a bond between him at the citizens and he build up a lot of trust and that is one of the most important things for an election because it is hard for a president to win an election if the citizens don’t trust

Speeches in America’s history have been very powerful and moving. The speech given by Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain before the Battle of Gettysburg that changed the minds of 114 mutineers to fight alongside him in this battle. I feel like I could compare Colonel Chamberlain's speech to the wonderful “I Have a Dream Speech” spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Both of these amazing and powerful words spoken by Martin Luther King Jr. Colonel Chamberlain’s speech were trying to move these mutineers to fight for his regiment that is below half strength and Dr. King is trying to get rid of racism.
