“ They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger?” this statement weakens the spirits within the colonist due to the intolerable acts. Although Britain thought the act would help them strengthen it was undermined by the presence of increasing the military activities. According to henry no matter what happens the war will come, “ The war is inevitable and let it come! I repeat it sir, let it come.” The main point of the speech is that the colonists must go to war to protect their own freedom.
In his “9/11 Address to the Nation” the 43rd President of the United States of America, George W. Bush assures that America will not be affected by the unruly and evil attacks carried out on September 11th, 2001. The President drafted this speech to resist the impending fear and questioning that American citizens around the country would soon be consumed by. Because 9/11 was the most impactful, yet devastating terrorist attack on the United States to date, Bush was not able to derive his thoughts from others’ ideas and speeches, thus he was forced to dig deep and extract the emotions and thoughts aroused by the “despicable acts.” Much like any great leader, President Bush wanted to stress the importance of instilling a sense of pride and resilience in the country and fellow countrymen and women to come together and remain as one. As the head of the “brightest beacon of freedom and opportunity” President George W. Bush declares that the United States of America will “remain strong” and appear unaffected as the country continues to build and rebound from the senseless acts of terrorism and hate. When being sworn into office, the elected presidential candidate must swear to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States to the best of his/her ability.
The law states that is freedom of speech to burn our American Flag, but how is stomping and burning the symbol of this nation where our freedom of speech should be. Most do it out of anger toward our country, but why do they have to take such drastic measures to show their anger. Wattad stated” grant the flag special respect.” ( 1, 2008) It's not saying take away freedom of speech just grant something that represents what our soldiers are fighting for special respect. So if someone would burn the American flag than they would be punished not given a warning and let go. However, even though it might make a grown man cry to see this it doesn’t even come close to how a soldier who have fought for this symbol must
The Native American Chief Pontiac made it clear that he would not endure the white man’s aggression when he tells his people “Send them back to the country which I made for them. There let them remain.” (American Yawp, Pontiac Calls for War). It is also a reaction to the conclusion of the French and Indian War. It was drafted after the Treaty of Paris, and it sought to appease the Native Americans. The Main idea of this legislation is that it strictly forbade American settlers from expanding west of the Appalachian Mountains.
In responding to some Quaker leaders who wrote about the American Revolution, he tells them they should not get involved in politics. He goes on to praise the Quakers for their belief in peace. However, because Britain is attacking Americans, the colonists have no choice but
Patrick Henry’s was “Speech in the Virginia Convention.” Ben Franklin’s was “Speech in the Convention.” Benjamin Franklin wants to not fight in war but Patrick Henry does. Benjamin Franklin agrees with our Constitution but Henry does not. Benjamin Franklin said that we all need to stand together to prevent war. Franklin was Federalist but Henry was Anti-Federalist. Franklin said there would be more violence (pre-war.)
John had also assured Thurston that he would not protect the queen and that he would land the troops from the Boston if necessary (Pitzer). As he was doing this, he also recognized the Provisional Government after the overthrow. In fact, this very man had done all of these acts without official permission from the U.S., so John Stevens shouldn’t have been allowed to do all the actions he did. This was obviously unjustified since Stevens wasn’t even supposed to do these things that led to the
We would be permitting a Sate to “prescribe what shall be orthodox” by saying that one may burn the flag to convey one’s attitude toward it and its referents only if one does not endanger the flag’s representation. Here I stand to say that for Johnson to burn the flag is very disturbing to our country as well to our peers. For him to do that wasn’t right and very rude. Many U.S. troops fight for our flag each and every day for our freedom and for us to live a natural free life instead of having many rules that would over power us.
It’ll show the world that we’re dominate. So people who are thinking about attacking us will know what’ll happen if they lose. What I want is what is best for the nation. I can’t do that if you, the people don’t trust me. Abe wants to completely end slavery.
President Lincoln was against the secession of states for a variety of reasons. In his first Inaugural Address he said that, “We cannot remove our respective sections from each other nor build an impassable wall between them”. The states cannot physically be separate and should not be separated by law either. Lincoln believed that secession was unlawful, saying that, “no State, upon its own mere motion, can lawfully get out of the Union”. They would be breaking the law by cutting their status in the union.
