Term Limitation of Congress In America, it is a constant debate whether members of congress should be term-limited. Many people believe that the current members of congress have been in their position for too long and are subject to prejudices and old ideas. Although, the terms of house and senate should not be limited due to the fact that, the power to change a representative is in our hands as well as we, as a country, do not need a congress with little experience. A lot of people believe that getting a congressman they do not like voted out is a myth. This is because in the past as well as now, the majority of some districts do not pay enough attention to know that someone does not deserve their position.
This doesn’t mean everyone will. As the Port Huron Statement points out “each individual sees apathy in his fellows” and this “perpetuates the common reluctance to organize for change.” People having the ability to affect the government and its proceedings means it’s a true democracy; government “for the people by the people.” People don’t always take advantage of this, however those that do contribute to the democracy as a whole. Lobbying allows people to influence politicians, but it’s not the only way. Just writing letters can create change or at least make the politicians aware of the problems. Citizens don’t always take advantage of this, but the option to do so is always present and available if citizens would like to do so.
This is what started the Blue Lives Matter movement, a movement for police officers to be protected. Due to a spike in police deaths the government imposed harsher laws against assaulting, harming, or killing a police officers. The BLM community is concerned because they feel like they are taking a step backwards in the relationships between the community and its people with the local police officers. Lots of people are saying that the movement is unjust because they believe that “All Lives Matter,” but the movement is just simply pointing out that African Americans are being wrongfully targeted and killed. The movement is trying to prove that all of our lives should be equal not one life is better than the
Despite the fact that the protagonist is President of the United States, many people do not treat him as such, and his status has almost completely no meaning after the flu strikes. “Neither one of them even suspected I was the president. I had become quite a mess by then.” (134) Despite this, many hierarchies form in the post-flu world, but are unpopular and meaningless. “There were claims of Dukedoms and Kingdoms and such garbage, and armies were raised and forts were built here and there. But few people admired them.
The fact is that Trump doesn’t have a grand plan and his ideas are typical conservative-American. He is playing to the American dream at a time when the citizens are beyond frustrated with the do-nothing politicians in office who are sweeping all of their problems under a floor rug. Both the economy and security has initially left our country, and people are finding themselves desperate for any kind of hope. The deportation ideas that Trump has brought to our attention may be found completely absurd, but have been done before under a loved president. The concept of keeping illegals out of our country and that one cannot simply take upon residency without permission is not insane.
One as a young adult always complains about how one has different ideas that are able to work to change the real government style, but they are rarely portrayed in the society. At the same time, different kind of questions are always made towards the government and they are rarely portrayed. Because of the different types of questions that one and the media can argue about, they are arranged as public questions and a reporter’s type of question. Fallows describes in his article Why Americans Hate the Media what specific questions are made by both, the public and the reporter. Talking about the public “the citizens asked overwhelmingly about the game of politics” (Game, Fallows).
Forced Labor in the USA has been a major problem since the past few years, yet the government nor the citizens who has been victims of Forced Labor, has not made any major plans to put Forced Labor into an end. It is in need to put Forced Labor into an end so that the victims of this problem may have everlasting freedom and success in their own separate lives. The citizens of the US are experiencing “Forced Labor” in a way that they don’t even know that they’re already being victims of this certain problem. In other words, these citizens are being “tricked” because of the false advertisements that are being given to them, which blinds them because they don’t know the background of the store they’re going to work for, which makes them realize in the End that they’re already victims of Forced Labor. There are many possible solutions to put Forced Labor into an end.
Media has a powerful influence that can decide whether you like something or not. Media does have its flaws. Many people believe media to be an unbiased source but in many cases the only depict the bad sides of people. A good example of this could be the 2016 Presidential election Republican candidate Donald Trump. In many news stations and media sites they mostly depicted only his ugly side almost showing biased towards the other candidate.
Also this sparked change in the eyes of many whites and blacks that said everyone is enough with inequality in the United States of America. The Government and law enforcement played a tremendous role in the experience of the freedom riders. The law enforcement wasn’t very helpful and allowed people to beat the freedom riders for a couple of minutes and have no consequences; whereas the Federal Government was protecting the freedom riders at the expense of the tax payers. The Federal government allied in more than one way; by US Marshals, National Guard, and the United States
This is because a country may have constant GDP growth, but this wealth is distributed between very few. In both films, the legacy of colonization and exploitation left a profound effect on the political structures of the corresponding nations. After achieving independence, this method of rule was still considered the norm by many of the country’s corrupt leaders, including the infamous Idi Amin (The Last King of Scotland). The constant state of civil unrest and squandering of the nation’s major resources caused by political competition is a major reason that development in Uganda today is not where it should be. Additionally, the widespread poverty and subsequent lack of education prevents the people of Uganda from organizing and mobilizing as they could to help bring an end to ongoing strife.
With statistics shown about how the number of electors each state gets isn 't even fair, and that smaller states really do get more of an advantage it leads me to really question why they even have this system. America is about freedom, the freedom to choose your leader, the freedom to vote for laws, and the freedom to vote for who is eligible to pass these laws. If we are promised all these freedoms why is it that there is a whole complicated system not everyone even knows about that actually proves the popular votes of the people do not decipher our president? I believe it should be banned from use due to the unfairness of the process as a
All of these issues contribute to the deadlock of American government. Contributing to the deadlock of congress is the agenda of individual politicians. In the case of many elected officials, it is not the main objective to do best for their people, but
Obvious critics were business owners. They were not very appreciative of the minimum wage, though this wasn’t all businesses. Other critics include Huey Long and Father Coughlin. Huey Long was actually once a supporter of FDR, he later decided to run for President. With all the work done and change made, America was still struggling.
