The Electoral College system assures balanced power between the states, puts the independent parties under control, grants balanced voting, and supports the major political parties. The Electoral College has proven itself to be very sufficient in determining the president and the vice president of the United States. Since this system has been successful since our Founding Fathers created it, there should be no reason as to why we should get rid of the Electoral
Washington acknowledged that political parties are a part of human nature in his Farewell Address, and that still holds true today. That said, he had a powerful reason to make these suggestions: he wanted to maintain unity. If George Washington was alive today, his
The loss of his culture, and relationship between David and his grandmother at a very young age. David, not only lost his parents but, also his grandmother and support system that he could relate to at the time. Which could possibly been seen as abandonment issues to someone to someone who is very young. Thus, playing out the same kind of behaviors as an adult to his own son which was magnified by his trauma, substance abuse and loss of his identity. That can be seen as a pattern of intergenerational issues that will continue to affect the family as a whole from start to finish.
Dave showed us that these responsibilities could be very simple. One that he loved to stress was voting. But I already knew what the simplest responsibility to America was. I’d known it from the second I laid eyes on Dave. Without even trying, he showed me that being proud of my country was my responsibility.

The first thing that stood out to me was how confident Dr Martin Luther king was as a speaker and how much he captured the audience attention. You could feel the energy of the crowd without even being there. His eye contact stood out to me as well, he wasn’t just reading from a paper he spoke from his heart making his speech even more powerful. A quotation that really inspired me is “I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment. I still have a dream.” I love this quote it shows how strong he was as a person.
Today we are entering a new era for our country and its people. Today we celebrate not the victory of a party, but a victory for all the people of South Africa. Our country has arrived at a decision. Among all the parties that contested the elections, the overwhelming majority of South Africans have mandated the African National Congress to lead our country into the future. The South Africa we have struggled for, in which all our people, be they African, Coloured, Indian or White, regard themselves as citizens of one nation is at hand.
A great victory for citizens of America and a great personal triumph for Mr. Watson. This shows us that we truly do live in a democratic society accepting of citizen input. Gregory Watson’s resilience in government process is a truly honorable feat, even though all he did was simply write a letter and got involved with his nation and its government. His story opens so many doors in the hopes that if things need to be changed things can get changed. Personally it has prompted me and made me more comfortable in becoming a more involved citizen.

School has taught me a wide array of knowledge that will assist me when I get into the real world. It has helped me have better reasoning, problem solving, and memory skills. Without school, I wouldn’t be nearly as intelligent or mature as I am today. I also wouldn’t have met all of my friends, who’ve helped shape me into the man I am today. As I’ve gotten deeper into my education, I realized that every year the stress levels and stakes get a bit higher.

It will expand from not just military and physical health but also to mental/emotional health. Mental health is discussed in the curriculum but it doesn’t compare to the amount of military and physical health topics discussed.
