For the 2016 presidential election I will be eighteen years old, so I plan to vote for Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders seems like a good candidate to be elected as the new president of the United States because he cares about us the people. A few reasons why Bernie Sanders would make an excellent president are because he plans to make college free, open work opportunities, and give everyone a reasonable work wage with those new jobs. However, the most important reason for me as a woman would be Bernie’s proposal to fight for women’s rights.
Bernie Sanders believes that college tuition isn’t in the interest for our country’s future. Bernie Sanders states “It is insane and counter-productive to the best interests of our country and our future, that hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college” (Bernie). Bernie Sanders’ point is that many of the talented people in our society may not be able to pursue their dreams or pursue their desired job because they and their parents can’t afford college. If Bernie Sanders is right that many Americans can’t afford to go to college, as I think they are, then we need to reassess the popular belief that FAFSA and other scholarships will considerably lower the price for college.
Bernie Sanders believes that all students deserve the opportunity to receive an affordable, quality education from the earliest stages of schooling to high-level degrees. He has sponsored bills to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, as well as to drastically diminish interest rates on student loan debt.
The recent events of the 2016 presidential election have turned the race into an absolute nightmare. The American voters have whittled the candidacy down to two candidates of completely polar views on nearly everything. Clinton is on the far left and Trump is on the far right, which generates a precariously balanced peace between them. One little gust of accusation and everything comes tumbling down. Consequently, the presidential race has been bitterly fought, and both campaigns have utilized cheap tactics to attempt to pull ahead of the other candidate. However, the 2016 election was not this harsh in the beginning. The candidates focused more on boosting themselves up, rather than beating the other candidates down. One candidate that stood out in their creation of excellent advertisements was Bernie Sanders. Although he only has a small number of ads, they are all high quality, and are built around a variety of rhetorical appeals. Bernie Sanders’ campaign has created three ads--”It’s
Seventy-two percent of Democrats support the idea of the government taking over college and university payments, while 73 percent of Republicans oppose it. Independents are divided, 40 percent in favor and 42 percent is against free college (Cohen) . There is a smaller percentage of people who approves. Having a tuition-free college has pros and cons that both affects the people as well as the government. However, pros are more relatively accountable based from my research and observation.
3) “Surely, every American college ought to defend this waning possibility, whatever we call it. And an American college is only true to itself when it opens its doors to all - the rich, the middle, and the poor - who have the capacity to embrace the precious chance to think and reflect before life engulfs them. If we are all serious about democracy, that means everyone.”
College is one of the most important and life changing times in the life of an American. Leaving high school behind and venturing out to the adult world is an amazing experience that every individual should experience. However, young adults from every corner of the country leave college with crippling debt or do not go to their preferred college of choice. College education should be cheaper as it will help families and students financially and give them the satisfaction with having the opportunity to go to their first choice for college.
In “The Bernie Bomb” by Kimberley Strassel, critical, mocking tones emphasize Strassel’s feelings towards Bernie Sanders’ inability to become the President of the United States. Bernie Sanders gave quite a performance at the first Democratic debate of the year. Strassel shares her thoughts on the nature of his responses to important issues during the debate by concluding that his followers should regret making donations to his campaign seeing that he really is not in it to win. Her witty critiques indicate her strong feelings that donating to Sanders’ campaign in hopes that he will become President, is truly not worth the money.
The moment when you’re standing on that stage holding your diploma is a memory that will never fade. You’ll look back from pre-k till your senior year in highschool. A college education is almost mandatory in today’s society. Without a college degree the best job you’re likely to get is at a fast food restaurant working with high schoolers. Some students get perfect grades, and receive academic achievements, but their parents can’t afford the tuition of a community college let alone a University. The question is around from many students, families, and even teachers, wondering if free college should be a grant to this society. In my opinion I believe free college tuition should be funded by the US government. It will help families and students get some stress off their back, let alone to influence them to work
Humans always seek to convince each other that their opinions are in fact superior to other conflicting ideas, and none have mastered this art better than those who seek to run for various political offices within the United States. Through a variety of persuasive techniques, the ultimate goal is to gain the utmost respect and trust of those that they seek to gain support from. As we find ourselves in the midst of an election year, our intellect is flooded with speeches and new ideas as it pertains to modern issues. Bernie Sanders is no different and uses similar technique in order to convey his own political ideologies by convincing us of his knowledge of wealth disruption through statistics, passion for this country through emotion driven
Going to college is similar to going to the casino, in the sense that many people are told they should be willing to take a loss for a possible win in the end. In his essay “It’s Time to End Tuition,” Jon Wiener tackles the problem we have in America in which students incur massive amounts of debt as a result of attending college. He is successful in painting a picture for his audience with an analogy describing how many people attending college in pursuit of higher education end up owing “more on their student loans than they do on their credit cards” (Wiener). In order to stop student loan debt problems in America we should provide more opportunities for individuals who desire more education by making tuition at public colleges free which
Bernie Sanders is a staunch believer in the fact that women should have the fundamental right to control their bodies when it comes to sexual and reproductive health. He’s received both a 0 percent rating from The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), and a 100 percent rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America. According to The NRLC, Sanders has voted against the pro-life position more than 100 times in his federal legislative career. Let me just quote a couple of things that The NRLC notes about Sanders pro-choice

Over the past elections, it seems as though politicians have taken action based on the profit and influence. The 1% of the country controls more wealth than the other 99% of American Citizens; there is no fairness. Bernie Sanders, the democratic socialist, believes this too. Americans have been taught that socialism is wholly wrong and our country cannot incorporate the idea and system; nevertheless, Franklin D. Roosevelt implemented social reforms. This brought citizens hope and a new way of living; children no longer worked in mills and fields, women no longer suffered and the progressive income tax system was organized. The term socialism can exist without the accompanying negative portrayal. Sanders will bring options for America. Health
President, Barack Obama, in his speech, “Democratic Convention Presidential Nomination Acceptance Address,” discusses and implies his reason of becoming Americas next President. Obama’s purpose is to convey the idea that he can become the next President, by recognizing what the past Presidents did and what change he can do as the next one. Obama uses a hopeful and promising tone along with the use of pathos, logos, and ethos to appeal to the audience in a relatable way.
