The present day generation is fighting against this with the help of social media. Except, it is harder to spread those ideas until we have children of our own.

The U.S. draft is controversial between many Americans opinions because of its unfairness. What is a draft and what happens in a draft? First of all a draft occurs only when there is a national crisis, a crisis which requires more troops than the volunteer military can supply (Veterans for Peace). This requires a joint effort between the congress and the president. The president must sign a legislation put forward by congress to initiate the draft (Veterans for Peace).
Politics is a critical element of Richard II, and it is a guiding force of King Henry when he makes the decision to banish Exton. Appearances are crucial to any politicians, but particularly to a new king, such as Henry, who overthrew the last king in a military coup. King Henry shows a great understanding of himself and politics and is a better ruler than Richard because of that knowledge. King Henry has to solidify his rule, authority and power, and he has to do it quickly.
During the Vietnam war a draft was put into place. The draft required all able males between 18-26 to join the war. Although it was deemed necessary, was it constitutionally right? All able bodied adults between the ages 18 to 40 should not be subject to to required military service due to three reasons: if an individual is not self motivated to join the military their actions and attitude will be negative; in certain situations people aren’t able to take time away from their obligations because they are the sole provider; if the government obligated people to require military service it would create enormous conflicts between the people and government.
Everyone has the right to vote, but many don’t take that opportunity.

The protests were to make America the country it was supposed to be and most citizens were working together as one nation. There is also the argument that Americans have not actually lost pride in America, but gained pride and patriotism. Jerry Stinson stated, “In the last almost thirteen years, overt displays of patriotism have dramatically increased.” This is most likely due to 9/11, and the grief that flooded American citizens causing them to feel an overwhelming sense of patriotism.
Americans ask, “Why do we vote?” It’s really a silly question isn’t it? This is a serious issue, many people believe that their vote doesn’t count and will not affect the presidential election. These people then complain about the way things are. “Your vote is your voice.”

Becoming a lawyer is a highly skilled profession and requires many years of education and training. This may frighten many people away from this profession.

Before anyone thought about fighting the British for what they believed to be right, Concord was just a common town with average people trying to make a living. But in the time right before the war started, Concord was a very different place. No one wanted to fire the first shot, but they were preparing if it did happen. Gross tells us how they were some tense weeks, and William Emerson even said that it was a time of “Dread suspense.” The homes of the people of Concord lay
Every citizen has the right to vote, but not everyone does these days.
