Franklin Delano Roosevelt uses Pathos as well in his speech and he uses it in a way that makes the audience feel for him. "...- nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance." Roosevelt uses loaded language to emphasize what fear, which is useless, does to us and how it affects our plans. FDR presents us with many rhetorical devices in this speech and we have to look at this speech from the view of a citizen in the early 1930’s that is broken and lost everything and is starving. ”So, first of all, let me assert my
Over 100 million people in the world do not have the same basic freedoms that every American has, and over 4 billion people face harsh religious freedoms not allowing them to believe in what they want. During times of conflict in the world the United States and its presidents work to keep the freedoms that we as Americans have. Both Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” speech and Kennedy’s inaugural address describe how they want to preserve freedom in our country and the world. However, Roosevelt’s speech talks about aiding other countries to protect freedom and liberty, whereas Kennedy’s speech talks more about protecting our own country 's freedom and how to do it, through negotiation.

On February 1, Woodrow Wilson released the extraordinary announcement of the Imperial German Government.
One such rhetorical device is consonance. Throught the middle part of Kennedy’s speech he refers to, “tyranny,” “liberty,” and the ever present “friend or foe.” The “friend or foe” reference really comes into play when Kennedy is calling for unity, and global peace. He also alludes to the Monroe Doctrine, which states that the United States will protect all of the Americas from further colonization. He recognizes this as saying the western hemisphere intends to be the, “master of it’s own house.” He also utilizes analogies, where in one part he describes a power-hungry fool riding the back of a tiger. John F. Kennedy also uses metaphors and alliteration to inspire and unite the American citizens.
If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.” Franklin D. Roosevelt stated this quote, it explains how one must try everything before assuming something. If all fails then there’s always something else to try. Never give up on trying and in his speech, The First Fireside Chat, he persuaded the people to try to give the government their trust when they had a solution to the country’s banking issues. In his speech, President Roosevelt uses the term Logos, which is one of the rhetoric terms that gives the audience proof or a reason to believe what is being said, in this statement, “it is issued early on adequate security -- and every good bank has an abundance of security.” to persuade the citizens of the national security every bank has so their values would be completely safe.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States, in his first inaugural address, expounds how America will combat the Great Depression. Throughout his address, Roosevelt attempts to boost the morale of the American people, give them the confidence that situations will ameliorate, unite the country, and make it known that he is working alongside them. He adopts a concerned yet uplifting tone in order to develop a sense of trust and hope in the American people. Roosevelt commences his address by sparking optimism in the listeners and assuring he will give them nothing but complete candor. He provides citizens with a sense of comfort by affirming that the nation “will revive and will prosper.” He enlightens Americans that fear is making matters worse and the only thing they “have to fear is fear itself.” Roosevelt provides this information in order to revitalize the nation “in these critical days.” By attempting to appease the somber emotions of the American people, Roosevelt translates his commiseration for and belief in the nation.
Immediately after this violent occurrence, the US entered World War II. The US had many successes up till Roosevelt’s death such as: occupying Sicily, decreasing the land mass of Germany in Africa.
