This conservative idea is rational, but simply not true as the American Psychological Association states the “psychological and social aspects” between homosexual and heterosexual relations are very similar and make both equally fit to care for a child. Many conservatives see anything other than being attracted to the opposite sex a sin because of arguable biblical textual aspects. Biblical references are interoperated in accordance to one’s individualistic ideas and cannot be used as concrete evidence in any situation. There are points to the popular consensus among conservatives that peoples of sexual orientation other than between man and women are not considered
The people who are against immigration want it to get rid of it or they want it to be extremely limited in our country. One person who talked about how limiting immigration and stopping people from coming to the United States is a good change for us is David Goldman. In his article “President Trumps Immigration Ban is Magnificently Right” Goldman says that Trumps 90-day travel ban is “callous towards individual Muslims but merciful to American citizens, who have the right to go about their business without fear of mass terrorist attacks.” (Paragraph 3). Being against immigration because of the fear or extra crime and terrorism seems to be one of the main reasons for people in the United States to be against it. In the last election it was one of President Trumps main areas of focus.
Numerous Americans would agree, 2015 was not a pleasant year in the United States. Although there have been strides in technology and civil rights, tensions rose in the Middle East and countless mass shootings occurred. As the 2016 election nears, a myriad of presidential candidates are promising a better future, but one, in particular, has caught the eye of the nation. The billionaire’s name is Donald Trump and he is the GOP’s front runner. Supporters believe in Trump’s campaign slogan that he will “Make America Great Again”, but there also those who have condemned him as well as his ideas.
To put things into context, candidate Donald Trump does not posses these qualities. Despite the time he called multiple women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” Trump’s reckless behaviour can jeopardize America’s relationship with its allies. The British parliament considered to ban trump due to his “hate speech” against Muslims. President Pena Nieto of Mexico absolutely opposed Trump’s idea of building a wall and he explained how Trump’s demagoguery was “how Mussolini got in, that’s how Hitler got in”. Trump also pledged stern action against China for “ripping [America] off” these type of threats will worsen America’s relationship with its allies.
Despite claiming to be an activist against racism, Carson has stated that he does not believe a Muslim should be allowed to be president of the United States. In an article written June 2015, Carson states, “Racism was once epidemic in America, but through struggle, sacrifice, soul-searching and meaningful social change, we have made much progress. Clearly, the struggle is far from finished, and we must own up to that fact and that challenge.” Many media outlets have called him a hypocrite, saying although he claims to be an activist, he is being racist when stating that Muslims should not be president. Carson has not backed down from his statement, believing that a Muslim president would be a terrorist attempting to attack the United States. Despite his controversial stance on this issue, Carson has only risen in the polls, destroying Trump’s major lead.
To begin with, Trump wants to abolish abortion, but have a few exceptions. His exceptions for abortion is rape, incest or health issues in women. Trump was all on abortion being instinct forever, until he changed his views to pro-life based on pro-choices. One of the reasons why Donald Trump changed his mind was for the reason that he had a friend that were a couple and they were going to have a child, but the family didn’t want it, eventually in life they kept it and the child grew up to be an excellent boy. On the contrary Trump has stated during a previous interview with a radio host that "abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood should not -- absolutely should not -- be funded."
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.
Consequently the Puritans had no qualms with killing for land. A similar situation occurs in modern America. Everyday, American citizens justify refusing marriage licenses to gay couples on the ground their religion deems others inferior. This idea of inferiority also exists in Puritan gender roles. Puritanistic beliefs dictate that while men and women are equal in their ability to achieve saintliness their equality stops there.
To be clear, the two numbers do not necessarily indicate causation, and there could be several other factors attributed. However, what cannot be debated is the same Pew Research Center study found a majority (Both, Democrats and Republicans) believe money has a greater influence on politics today, and the high cost of presidential campaigns discourages good candidates. (Desilver & Van Kessel, 2015). The sentiment of voters is clear, big money has permeated campaigns to an unacceptable degree. To illustrate, Super PACs made $65 million in expenditures in 2010, $608 million in 2012, and $339 for the 2014 mid-term elections (Desilver & Van Kessel, 2015).
The first controversial issue I have been drawn to, has been Donald Trump run the presidency. I have been draw to this event for a few reasons. I was interested to see if Trump could in fact find a way to convince the American public that he is fact fit to be the president of this country. Trump ultimately accomplished this by starting a movement to “Make America Great Again,” campaigning to make changes. He used the fact he was not a career politician, to gain the peoples trust, despite questions about events from his past personal life.
