The Republicans have won and Abraham Lincoln is now the new president. The great debate continues regarding the hot topic of secession. The state of Georgia appears to be the site where this issue of secession is currently being debated by Alexander Stephens and Robert Toombs. The issue is whether the confederate states of South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia,Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas have the right to secede from the union or not.

The issues being debated include state rights and disagreements over tariffs but the greatest division is on the issue of slavery, which is legal in the South but is gradually being banned by states north of the Mason-Dixon
William Jennings Bryan delivered this speech on July 9th, 1896. It was known as the “Cross of Gold” speech. He wanted to use silver for the national currency and not just gold. On March 4th ,1895 a few Democrats addressed the ongoing question of “should silver be used as the national currency?” If so, then the people who believed it should needed to form organizations and take charge to make silver the national currency. People are worried that if silver becomes our national currency then they will lose money because silver does not equal up to the amount that gold it worth.
Sir Winston S. Churchill, the former prime minister of the United Kingdom, was a skilled politician as well as a talented military leader. His success in both fields had much to do with his talent for oration; a strong command of language leads to a firm impression on the minds of listeners. One speech that demonstrated his expertise in syntax is The Defense of Freedom and Peace, wherein he pleads for aid against tyranny by using poignant imagery, concepts of camaraderie, and thematically consistent phrasing to sway his audience.
The various ideologies of love mentioned by speakers in Plato’s Symposium portrayed the social and cultural aspect of ancient Greece. In the text, there were series of speeches given by Phaedrus, Pausanias, Eryximachus, Aristophanes, Socrates, and Agathon about the idea of love, specifically the effect and nature of Eros. Within the speakers, Agathon’s speech was exceptional in that his speech shifted the focus of the audience from effect of Eros on people, to the nature and gifts from the Eros. Despite Agathon’s exceptional remarks about Eros, Socrates challenged Agathon’s characterization of Eros through utilization of Socratic Method.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the United States was booming with new industrial innovations because of new technologies, and it was becoming one of the leading economies in the world. This economic boom came to a sharp halt as events such as the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl hit, causing millions of Americans to face economic struggles. “The Strenuous Life,” a speech given by Theodore Roosevelt, displays the ideas of American work ethics that led to economic growth in the early 1900s. These ideals of work ethic not only prompted the cause of the Dust Bowl, but were continued on into the lives of the affected farmers as Americans displaced and in poverty from this event continued to participate in migrant work with awful living

Many civil rights leaders have spoken out about their controversial views of how to address injustices. For instance, during the Civil Right Movement, Kathie Amatniek and Harvey Milk both spoke to voice that their societies that are directing injustices towards gays and women. Using pathos and metaphors, Amatniek wants America to rid of traditional views of gender. Meanwhile, Harvey Milk uses using pathos, diction and humor to connect with his mainly homophobic audience to abolish the negative stereotypes of gays. In both Amatnieks Funeral Oration for the Burial of Traditional Womanhood and Milks The Hope Speech similar rhetorical appeals and stylistic devices are used to say what the audience, as an individual, should change social injustices.
Chrétien’s speech is mainly targeted towards Quebecers wishing to separate from our country. This speech took place prior to the referendum regarding the issue of whether or not Quebec should proclaim its individual sovereignty. Chrétien also recognizes Quebec as a “distinct society” whilst specifying Quebec’s unique language and culture which makes it an admirable community. To bring this all together, Chrétien stresses the beauty in Canadian diversity, generosity, tolerance and respect which is idolized by other foreigners. I appreciated how Chrétien identified and acknowledged Quebecers cries for change and even says that he knows the separatist party will guarantee exactly that. This brings an essence

Baby boomers have ruined America and should take responsibility for the weakened state of millenials. Baby boomers grew up in an era of prosperity. They were raised by parents who survived poverty, war and showed a true sacrifice of a generation burdened with great moral struggles. Baby boomers received inexpensive and available education, preparing them for a thriving open job market. This led to Americans greatest invention, the middle class. But this great invention is being shook off like a bad case of fleas due a new generation called the millenials. Many millenials are being left in what they call a quarter life crisis, a period in which someone in their early twenties feels doubtful about their own lives, brought out by stress of becoming
