America will not become a communist nation, ever. Harvard thought me, when we stand as one, then we can accomplish much more together. As I have been doing for the past decades. And I will intended to do that for the rest of my life. Rejecting or not given me a fair hearing as one of the best Supreme Court nominee by the President of the United States of America, because it is the last year of his Presidency, is unconstitutional in Harvard or any Princeton law books, the books inside of chamber is included.
This holiday reminds Hawaiians as the day their mother and land was illegally and wrongfully taken away from them. “Was it practical for the Jewish people to reclaim Israel?” asks Henry Noa, the prime minister of the Hawaiian Government. He then states “It took them 1,800 years. So what’s 50 years to us?” All these changes for Hawaii took place less than 150 years ago, from the annex in 1898 to Hawaii becoming a state in 1959. Henry Noa states a valid point.
All his decisions required the consent of the cabinet and he could no longer appoint the House of Nobles and was prevented from dismissing it. In addition, the constitution instituted property requirements for voter eligibility and barred Asian immigrants from voting. Furthermore, white foreigners no longer had to become citizens to vote, they only had to meet a set of requirements, such as an income of at least $600, a property of at least $3000, and literacy in English, Hawaiian, or any European language. 2.

When Abraham Lincoln became President there was a fear from the southerners that the southern way of life would end. The southerners thought that if the western territories became free states that the Republicans would change the Constitution and make slavery in all areas outlawed and many thought that they would leave the Union before this inflicted upon them. The southerners held back from the division until 1860 when Lincoln became President. In history it is known that South Carolina was the first state that began the secession. “On December 20, 1860, a state convention repealed South Carolina’s ratification of the U.S. Constitution and voted to withdraw from the Union.
Even today, the Electoral College ensures that “the preferences of minority voters count for almost nothing” (Hoffman). The popular “winner take all” system of distributing electoral votes at the state level fundamentally disenfranchises the conflicting opinions of minority votes (Hoffman). In alternative systems of distributing electors proportionally or using the national popular vote, the ballots cast by minority voters across the country would significantly add to one candidate’s total. In this manner, the effects of the Electoral College with regard to suppressing minority votes is appallingly similar to the types of political gerrymandering banned by the Voting Rights Act of 1965. (Kelkar) The minority votes, even if they comprise 49% of the state population, get virtually nozero electoral representation in the vast majority of states.
After the WW2 this became the way to escape the large poverty population in Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans with residency in Puerto Rico cann’t vote in the US Primary elections or for congress only the nominate vote. Only Puerto Ricans with Residency in the 50 states can vote. 1918-1999 Many Military bases have open and closed of which only 1 base remains, It is The Buchanan Army base in Guaynabo Transition 4: “Now that you have heard my speech, I want you to remember these important points.” 7. Conclusion = Summary of important facts reviewed during the main points of the speech • Puerto Rico took a break from Spain in 1898 claiming some independence • United States did not hesitate to step in and kick Spain out • Years later the US and PR were engaged under the Jones Act making.
“It is time for both the US government and the tribes to stop pretending that they are like foreign countries negotiating a settlement” (Riley, Naomi). People are confused and troubled as to why the government is acting as though they are separate from the United States. Many believe that if we treated tribes like France, a country or government apart from our own, we shouldn’t be funding or giving money to them (Riley, Naomi). That we could use that money toward something more beneficial to the general people of the US. The general opinion for this stance is that it would be more fair to everyone to abolish the tribal sovereignty and reservations, based on government funds and land or
This quote from Queen Lilioukalani's "Abdication Speech" is the second part that Queen Lilioukalani stated. This states that at the time of this agreement she was mentally stable and she will disown and disclaim all the laws, rights, or title she was given by the Government of Hawaii and under the new Government (U.S.) laws, she will claim only what rightfully belongs to her. This was important, along with the rest of the speech, to end the Government of Hawaii and end the Hawaiian and U.S war that has been going on for so long. This is another important aspect of this speech because this states that the Queen herself will not possess any rights that the Government of Republic of Hawaii had anymore and will disown any titles that was granted to her. The reason this is important to the study in this course is that, though Queen Lilioukalani says that she wasn't under any "mental reservation or modification", she was probably actually under a lot of pressure for making this speech.
According to David Newton in “Same-Sex Marriage: Overview”, up until 1990, the controversy on same-sex marriage hardly existed, as people automatically shunned the idea. Marriage was between a man and a woman- that was all people knew, and all they wanted to know. However, in 1990, for the first time, 3 same-sex couples sued the state of Hawaii, hoping to gain the right of marriage. Instead, they received an amendment to Hawaii’s constitution banning same-sex marriage- the state’s quick, easy answer to the couples. And the struggle began from there, encompassing 25 years, innumerable lawsuits, and multiple hindering bans.
The Bill of Rights were proposed to fix problems from a number of Constitutional delegate. They claimed that at the moment, the constitution had no laws giving rights to an individual citizen! A compromise was made that put the original Constitution in power, but they all knew they were going to put in amendment 's right after. Originally twelve amendments were tried, but only ten out of the twelve were approved by the three-fourths majority of state legislatures that were necessary to amend the Constitution. Many Americans take for granted everyday all of the rights the Bill of Rights gives to each and everyone of us.
Hawaii is a small nation of tribes in the Pacific Ocean that have be isolated from the rest of the world until now. We respect your ways of life but refuse to accept them. By annexing Hawaii the United States is taking away the rights of our people. We have their own government and way of life. The Hawaiian Patriotic League of the Hawaiian Islands does not support the annexation of our home lands.
The Dawes act nullified previous land allotments forced upon the Native Americans by the federal government. This new act insured that the allotted land, that the Native Americans were forced to live on and rebuild their lives, will now be given to white settlers. I don’t think this act is fair or just. It’s other process that is trying to get rid of the Native American culture and lifestyle. They’re separating big parts of the region, and making them relocate to a smaller area.
My first reason behind this is the Athenian government only granted citizenship to men who parents were free-born Athenian parents. These were the only people who could vote, and do other things involving the government. So all the people that could vote would vote for a person to be ostracized. Which means that the government banishes you from the city-state for a certain amount of years. This is an example of them not being democratic at all.
