I believe that most of my political ideologies are closely associated with the Democratic Party. For instance, I strongly support abortion, stricter gun background checks, affordable education, use of alternative energy, promotion of welfare, the expansion of social security, and a better immigration system. Thus, I believe in an efficient and just government that has enough power to govern all of its people without discrimination. In this regard, it’s plausible for a government to have enough power to deal with issues that the country is struggling with. Among all of the important issues that a government needs to tackle, personally, the issues of abortion, promotion of welfare, and the use of alternative energy, are the most important to …show more content…

In other words, if we don’t take action right now to cut carbon dioxide and prevent the increasing greenhouse effect, the ocean levels will slowly rise as glaciers melt and retreat, imperiling the habitat of many endangered species. Since global warming is a proven phenomena, caused by an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, it’s important for the government to regulate the carbon dioxide emissions of factories and the car manufacturers by enforcing laws and regulations. By reinforcing laws and increasing the number of professional government inspectors, any loopholes and acts of bribery can be eliminated. Although regulating the carbon dioxide levels is important, nonetheless, nothing can truly be achieved if production has to stay the same while demand increases; thus, to make this scheme effective, a greener, renewable energy source is needed. Alternative energy is always a subject that is almost completely ignored by the Republicans, but mentioned by a handful of Democrats. But so far any significant effort, such
