The speeches, both were given around the same era, only three years apart. In the late nineteenth century, Americans began to feel dissatisfied with the negative impacts the technological boom made (“New Nationalism vs. New). Technology has been changing rapidly, and it altered the lives of many people, and some people believed that the society and the economy had a lot to catch up (“New Nationalism vs. New). Two presidents, Roosevelt and Wilson both gave a persuasive speech trying to make a change during the Progressive Movement (B&N). They both agree that the current laws were not doing well in controlling the big businesses and that changes need to be made immediately
The implementation of those government programs were to support the New Deal which was presented with the sole purpose of providing relief to struggling Americans. Those government programs were brought along with a sharp increase from deficit spending from his predecessor, President Hoover; the deficit spending increased 1 billion dollars following Roosevelt’s election and continued to increase throughout his presidency (Document 5). The display of his spending and increased government involvement is consistent with his traditionally viewed liberal philosophies, but his policies and actions deviated from those liberal principles. During his campaign, Roosevelt took careful time and measures to outline what the very being of liberal thinking was and how he planned to frame his policies around that (Document 1). His promises were inconsistent on the campaign trail such as reducing government operation cost which would ultimately result in reducing government involvement and provision for equal opportunity (Document 4).
After eight years of presidency, Obama’s administration is finally coming to an end. The issue returns to who will succeed him - a democrat or a republican? Currently, the mid-primary elections are taking place to determine who the most suitable candidate is, with Bernie Sanders trailing Hillary Clinton to become the democratic nominee. Due to his emphasis on economic reform and narrowing the income gap in the United States, Sanders targets the working class through his goals of redistributing wealth. He also appeals to families by pushing for free nationwide college tuition, which would relieve some of the financial burden laid on parents and guardians.
In this part of Franklin Roosevelt’s inauguration speech he is encouraging the people of the United States and showing his zeal to improve the economy. In the cause of the depression Roosevelt came up with the plan of the NEW DEAL. In his new deal plan, he aim was to stop deflation. Though there were complications in regards to this
Franklin was narrowly elected and gave him confidence that his political star was rising. He believed in progressive government and instituted a number of new social programs and by 1930 Republicans were being blamed for the Great Depression. Franklin sensed opportunity and began his run for presidency, Calling for intervention in the economy to provide relief, recovery and reform. His upbeat, positive approach and natural charm helped him defeat Republican incumbent Herbert Hoover, in November 1932. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first impact was that he worked with Congress to get budgets approved and systems modernized to have greater Military forces.
While the international consensus is currently towards globalization of the economy, the political consensus is still mainly national. This discrepancy in has created “winners”, including those in the upper middle class of developing countries and the top one percent of the wealthiest people, and “losers”, the global working class and lower middle class. The losers in particular are not satisfied with how their position has diminished relative to before, which has led to reactionary movements throughout the world ("The Winners and Losers of Globalization"). For example, in France, Marine Le Pen of the Front National (FN), a party that calls itself the sole savior for the “French victims of globalization” (Angel), leads most polls for the upcoming 2017 French presidential election (Goulard). In the United States, Republican nominee Donald Trump makes calls for “economic independence” (“Policies – Donald J. Trump”) in response to North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
As the President of the United States in the early 1900s, Theodore Roosevelt did many things that showed his progressivism. One of the reasons that we can describe Theodore Roosevelt as being a progressive president is because of his focus to limit the power of big businesses by destroying trusts between large companies. Roosevelt believed that big business was something that needed to be regulated and believe that it was bad for the United States (Sicius 138). This was especially the case when companies began to form trusts with each other to monopolize certain industries. For example, J.P. Morgan was in the process of making a trust with other big businesses, such as the railroad industry, to drive out competition from the market.
Former President, Barack Obama, in his speech, “Remarks on Immigration Reform”, the purpose is to convey how immigrants impact society in positive ways, encourage us to strengthen our country in different ways regarding immigration, and to strike against politicians against immigrants. His rhetoric is so prosperous because of his effective use in logos, pathos, and language. President Obama announced on January 29,2013 an abounding amount of executive actions to assist eleven million immigrants protection against deportation. With actions being taken during presidency a plan of action was taken in place. Prioritizing enforcement against illegal criminals, giving an opportunity for people who are here for an education, and equal rights for those who are illegal to come out of the shadows for work.
Considering the impact of deliberative rhetoric on the modern democracy and the US political course we should recall the events of the presidential campaign of 2008 and the elections, during which Barack Obama was elected as the 44th president of Unites States of America. Due to the competition between John McCain and Barack Obama, the last candidate won the election with the support of the democratic party and 52.93% of the votes given for his support. The question could be arisen at this point “With regards to the efforts of the democratic party’s propaganda, is the free deliberative rhetoric is beneficial to the functioning of a democracy considering the recent course and outcome of elections?” Yes, because the rhetoric used by Obama during the presidential campaign has affected the outcome of the
The state of the country's economy during a presidency is one of the most important characteristics of a president's success, and both Eisenhower and Johnson thought about their country's wealth. Eisenhower's tenure was marked by a booming economy (Ambrose 347), and he had to find a way not only to preserve it but to benefit from it. During his presidency, the federal spending as a share of GDP decreased by two percent (“Dwight D. Eisenhower: Domestic Affairs”), but still domestic spending increased despite all his attempts not to let that happen by blocking expensive programs (Ambrose 479). Though income and real purchasing power of Americans increased, many people still lived below the poverty line (“Dwight D. Eisenhower: Domestic Affairs”). Mostly they were
Congress would grant Roosevelt sweeping powers to regulate banking. The week following this, most American banks would resume operations but this whole motion would not settle well with Huey furthering their rivalry. This was in response to the Great Depression growing worse. Huey would respond by stating that there needed to be a 100% tax on the rich (Bondi, Page 93-117). Huey kept getting high appraisal for his ideas and he was a huge fan of John L. Lewis and claimed that he was the Huey Long of Labor which would help him gain greater popularity among the labor unions (Bondi, Page 133).
The Pendleton act influenced the Corporations, the name for it was the Pennsylvania Idea. In the late 1800s’ senators, mainly republicans senators, the republicans that wanted to become president. For example William McKinley raised money by going directly to the corporations and ask them if you give me the money and past a favorable legislation or vise versa stop negative legislation, whatever it is in order for you to wrake in the big dollars. Teddy Roosevelt disagreed on what president William McKinley did after his assassination, Roosevelt made it his mission to regulate as well as making it completely fair in competition system in Capitalism. Teddy Roosevelt believed that money in politics was a negative influence in campaigns.
The personal vendetta Jackson had for Clay and Calhoun also assisted in his decision making on the charter renewal. This decision resulted in rogue banks attempting to print their own money, so counterfeiting became a problem. The election period from the 1820 's until the 1830 's resulted in a new type of politics, that was "characterized by pandering to the masses" (Schultz, Mays, Winfree, 2010). There were four factors involved; (1) the booming economic growth caused Americans to feel that government should be more responsive to their needs; (2) voting expansion, more men were able to vote; (3) the continual presidential election of 1824 that raised national political awareness; (4) which led to the rise of mass parties and the second two-party
augmented fivefold, which was a staggering increase, even though some scholars viewed the increase as a clear parity that created a gap between the rich and the poor. These scholars acknowledge the contribution of industrial giants such as Andrew Carnegie as well as John D. Rockefeller in revolutionizing business operations and ushering in of the contemporary corporate economy. However, the revolution sometimes affected free-market in a negative way through unfair market and economic competitions in the process. During this period, a rocket number of people were allowed and empowered to perform their voting rights. However, the bunch of leaders they voted in ignored the interest of those that voted them to the positions their held.
In the event of a federal rate hike, in mid-December, there will be many pros and cons. Some of the pros include higher interest rates for savers and more interest income for retirees. A rate hike could also help people who are on-the-fence about buying a house get off the fence. It could also help to strengthen the dollar bill and might lead to a slight jump in bank loans. The con that people are most worried about is a higher interest rates on loans.
