America has not had an easy history. Short compared to other countries and nations, but definitely not easy. So in these times of great strife and great anger and great need, there needs to be great leaders who can inspire the very People to climb out of the deep pits that they have sunk so far down into, to stand for something bigger than themselves, standing as one when the world wants them to stand apart. Two of these great, awe-inspiring leaders was Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan, arguably two of the greatest Presidents this nation has ever experienced. Roosevelt and Reagan both were leaders in a time of great, great sorrow, great pride, amazing victories and devastating losses, and to get through such times, all they needed
As I try to answer this question myself, I began first by trying to inventory the things I appreciate most about America. I quickly determined that the things I cherish most might be quite different than my other classmates, friends, and possibly my own family and that’s when I realized that the discretion to express your own ideas and to think
When you ask a non American “What does America mean to you?”, they will more often than not answer with hamburgers, obesity, NFL and Reality TV. That is okay because who doesn 't love hamburgers and football filled Sundays, who doesn 't love watching silly reality TV shows and who doesn 't love a cheat day every once in awhile? Those people are judging a book by its cover and fortunately for me… well my thoughts about America are quite different. When an individual asks me “What does America mean to you?”, I immediately think of three words, freedom, love and family. The most important right someone can have in this world is freedom and luckily for americans we have the luxury of freedom all the time. America has the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly and petition, the freedoms I just listed are only a few that America are known for. Sadly for other countries, most of them do
I would like to begin, sirs, by announcing; I am not the first with these thoughts. Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine – only a few of the men that share the same notion. It is true; I do not hold the reputation of these men. Nonetheless, I have been involved in American Politics for the past decade . We have passed the simple point of peace. We have tried many a ways to end this peacefully. Our pleas, petitions, protests – all flouted at the will of the King. Is what we ask, to be treated equal and fair, too much to grant? Too much for our people, yet easy enough to give to our northern brethren? I should say not. But here we are. We have been treated immorally – first in our markets, then in our governing bodies, in our homes,
My fellow Americans, I would like to thank you all for coming out today to listen to me speak on behalf of the future. America, the future is now. I want to strive in making a major impact on our country. Being President of the United States comes with a lot of responsibility. With all this responsibility, I want to make certain that America is the best it can be. In order for us to achieve the goal of making America the future it wants to be, we need to reform gun laws and assure that firearms are in safe and legal hands. We need to unite to stop the illegal immigration flowing into this country and slowly bring an end to climate change and global warming.
I am honored and humbled for this great opportunity to address this joint meeting of the Congress of the United States. Honorable Speaker, Vice-President, and members of congress, I am truly privileged to stand here on behalf of my Hispanic, and immigrant brothers and sisters, who stand as an important pillar of this nation’s economy and prosperity. A year ago, I was living in one of the most dangerous countries of the world, devastated by the hands of poverty and delinquency, and torn with the materialized selfish thoughts and avarice of corrupt political leaders. A country where the struggle of survival is an everyday challenge. It was a year ago that I lived in a nation in which opportunities for socioeconomic progress are scarce, and were the idea of safety is forever perpetuated as a
Since the Declaration of Independence ratified over two centuries ago, the United States of America have become a dominant, strong government. It has come from a vast, resource full land with only Native Americans to a vast, resource full land with every race. Americans seem invisible after all the success that the country has created that people might think that they are invisible, but if something happened inside America with the government, the whole country would go into chaos. If the government tried to recreate the government in The Hunger Games, the population would try to fight back but inevitably fall.
Tom Hayden, the voice behind the manifesto, was a student at the University of Michigan where the speech was given at in Port Huron, Michigan. He displays dissatisfaction and unimaginable events many young people were feeling in the 1960s. He goes on to say how we were once a nation of strength and wealth, the only with the atomic bomb at our disposal, the least scarred by modern warfare, as well an initiator of western influence throughout the world (2), as if everyone in the world wanted to be like the United States. The idea of the statement set out by Tom Hayden is to promote change and progress for the future, rather than having history re-peat itself all over again. In a period with hatred and bigotry in the south is when we as a whole
The United States of America is a big, powerful and wealthy country in the world. The division of class, individuality, religion, and race are but a few of the embellishments within the society. The blend of these numerous diversities is the crucial ingredient to the modern nation. America has been formed upon them, with that said the “average American”- have a single means in common; a single concept; a single goal; the American Dream. The Dream consists of a seemingly simple theory; success.
I envision the future America as a sanctuary that will protect and love the citizens of this country more than it is shown in the society of today. I imagine that the violence and chaos that is present today will eventually be defeated if we can conquer it with compassion and understanding. When we provide good work ethics along with focus, America will be built up the way it was intended to be. The thirty-third president of the United States, Harry S. Truman, stated, “America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” Needless to say, America no longer needs to be presented as the country that is filled with destruction, but viewed as a place of peace and freedom.
Progressivism was a reform movement that began during the end of the 19th century and continued through the first couple decades of the 20th century. During this time, many writers, politicians, and social welfare advocates came forward as leaders of the Progressive movement and sought to solve societal problems that were caused by capitalism and the Industrial Revolution. While these Progressives often differed in what they saw as America’s main problem and how it could be fixed, they shared the common belief that in order for the reforms to work, the government needed to take the lead, be actively involved in the reforms, and be more democratic. All citizens, similarly, were to take responsibility for their society as well. What follows is
America is a big superpower, a force to be reckoned with, and a corporate country. America is built upon freedom and money just like anywhere else. But with the way I think that were going, that’s the only thing America will be in the future. And the American dollar will be worth less and less, and the economy will crash more and more. Like I said earlier America is a corporate country based upon cash.
In conclusion, inevitable factors indicate that the road to achieve the American Dream is difficult. Therefore, all Americans need to have confidence to achieve personal goals and believe that tomorrow would be better that today. In other words, people still should follow the national government and have a positive attitude to
