He responded, “You mean it’s not politically correct, and yet everyone uses it? You know what? Give me a better term.” On the flip side, when another Republican candidate, Marco Rubio, was asked about Bush and Trump’s use of the phrase he responded, “… those are human beings.” Even though he does not use the phrase anchor baby and is not ready to repeal the amendment completely, he too is adamant that there is a problem with the law concerning this issue. Democrat, Hillary Clinton, certainly is not missing out on the controversy that is taking place with this issue at hand. She tweeted out in response to Jeb Bush asking for a better term with, “How about "babies," "children," or ‘American
Limits to Congressional Terms The only constant thing in America is change; except when it comes to the congressional member that govern our country. Many political pundits questioned how a junior senator from Illinois became President of the United States; because of change. The America people want it but Congress is having none of it. Legislation to limits congressional terms is not as published as gun control, but it is a domestic policy issue that many American are very concerned about. The founding fathers of America did not indent careerism in politics.
They all stated that we as American’s should not worry about the government looking into our business if we have nothing to hide. However, on June 12, 2013 Rand Paul explained the importance best when he stated” In the United States, we are supposed to have a government that is limited with its parameters established by our constitution. This notion that the federal government can monitor everyone’s phone data is a major departure from how Americans have traditionally viewed the role of the government. If this is acceptable practice, as the white house and many in both parties now say it is, then there are literally no constitutional protections that can be guaranteed anymore to citizens. In the name of security, the Constitution has become negotiable.” Because of this, the American
In (Doc E) Lyndon B Johnson was speaking to Roy Wilkins and Roy asked “ If he had felt so strongly about the issue , why had it taken him so long to act on it.” Then Johnson quoted Martin Luther King “Free at last, free at last.” You can infer from this quote that he was implying that he is not chackled to Texas theories anymore and he can speak his mind now as being President. This shows that his decision was principle because he is saying that before as Senator he was against integration because he had to follow the people’s opinion now he does not have
Carrie Chapman Catt uses a lot of ideas about democracy in her speech that was logical. Catt uses logic to appeal to her audience from the first reason of women suffrage inevitability to the end of the speech. Catt uses the Declaration of independence, which turn out to be the basic rule of government (Catt, 1917). This is because it states that all men (women) are created equal and Catt used that along with the quote from Woodrow Wilson that states “we are fighting for the things which we have always carried nearest to our hearts: for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government” (Catt, 1917). The logic in Wilson’s quote as it relates to women’s suffrage is if democracy is the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government than why do women not allow to vote because they too submit to authority as men do.
After women won the vote, the leader of the National Woman’s Party believed that woman needed an amendment to stop all discrimination based on sex. It was introduced by Alice Paul in Congress in 1923 and then re-introduced in several different ways every year until 1971. In 1972, the ERA was finally passed the House and Senate. At that time, it was given 10 year extension. However, in 1973, Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade activated a strong anti-feminist movement that opposed the goal of feminists who supported abortion rights and the ERA.
Let us have the rights we deserve” (Alice Paul). When the President first went into office, he did not support women's suffrage. By asking the President how long women must wait, Alice Paul refers to the the seventy years that women have fought for suffrage. Alice Paul makes a connection between liberty and suffrage, which keeps her motivated to fight for her right to vote. When Alice Paul asks the President for liberty, she asks for the right to
A common belief of many people throughout the world, specifically America, is that a woman is only a woman if she can bear children. As exemplified by Trans Justice in the following excerpt, “transphobic violence is justified using medical theories and religious beliefs, and is perpetuated in order to preserve US heterosexist values” (TransJustice 228) The theory that only persons who are biologically female can be a woman is a violence against trans women, which is perpetuated daily within the American societal norm of the gender
This movement not only involved with white suffragists, but also with the black suffragists; the whole event was concentrating on sex and racial equality. "As Stanton consistently put it, the republican lesson of the war was that popular sovereignty, the equal political rights of all individuals, preceded and underlay government and nations.... The belief that the right to vote was the individual 's natural right made the case for woman suffrage much stronger." (Dubois, 91) Stanton believed that through the lesion of equal political rights and individual’s natural right made the woman suffrage even stronger. The biggest winner of the whole event is Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
Introduction: A Basket of Deplorable(s): Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton’s Use of the Word Deplorable Before addressing the quote-on-quote controversial word used by the Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton to describe half the supporters of the Republican Nominee Presidential Nominee Donald Trump Campaign, it is important to make one fact clear. Regardless of the political spectrum, presidential candidates support, presidential candidates should never negatively described their opponents’ group of supporters and/or voters. In other words, attacking presidential candidates’ campaign is one factor, but attacking their supporters is another issue within itself, which causes more harm than good. In a regrettable manner,
“We publish the papers with input from the companies but they have absolutely no right to change what we say,” he said, and added the he had donated his own consulting fees to nonprofits. Mr. Sanders reiterated that he would vote against Dr. Califf. Even so, Dr. Califf’s candidacy appeared to have broad support, and most observers expect him to be confirmed. A date for the confirmation vote has not been
My Thoughts on Hillary Clinton When considering Hillary Clinton for presidential candidacy, I believe that the scandals swirling around her detract from her eligibility to be elected to the highest office in the land. Her experience isn’t enough for her to be a worthy president, we need to trust in the person who takes that place and Hillary Clinton is far from trustworthy. Although Before I can get into the topic of this paper its best to kick it off with a brief history of the woman herself. Hillary Rodham was born on October 26th, 1947, in Chicago, Illinois. She attended Wellesley College, afterwards Hillary then went to Yale Law School, where she met Bill Clinton.
