Throughout the movie, President Shepperd is continuously struggling to keep high approval ratings, during primary season. When he and Sydney begin falling in love, the opposing party, Senator Bob Runsom, denounces the president and Sydney during interviews and press conferences, causing the media to go crazy. Public announcements are made, saying that Sydney once participated in a protest, in which an American Flag was burned.

The effect is the president’s popularity decreasing, affecting his political influence; taking a major hit in the polls.

President Johnson usually spoke harshly about Congress and his mouth had the tendency to get him in trouble.

I do not think that we should increase border patrol because people that need to get out of another country because of say war, or poverty. For them to be safe, they can come to the United States and start a brand new life and not have to worry about their home being destroyed from bombings. I believe that we are too harsh about security in the first place. There is no need to build a wall or a fence because there are less expensive and intrusive ways to restrict access such methods as virtual walls using sophisticated monitoring or employment restrictions. There are many good things that come from not increasing border security.

As we may know, breaking the law is not always justified. It may lead to dysfunction and chaos in our society. Laws are created and exist to keep the citizens secure, safe, and from behaving in a negative manner that will greatly affect the quality of our lives. Everyone knows that the law should not be broken due to them being an essential piece of humanity, however "the only reason the law should ever be broken by someone was if it was necessary to stay alive or to defeat injustice. The law should protect everyone and if it 's not doing that whether it be due to oppression or survival, it is OK to break it" (Debate.org).

The ideas behind this moral distinction is that in passive euthanasia the doctors are not actively killing anyone but they are just not saving the patients. Most people think that euthanasia can be justifiable, when the patients are facing incurable disease, undergoing suffer, terminally ill and requests for euthanasia as their last wishes. For instance, Somerville (2010) argued that it is important to respect the people’s right of self-determination and autonomy. In other words, people should have the right to choose their time of dying but the state have prevented and stop them from doing it.
