Have you thought about who you’ll vote for this coming up election? And if you have, did you think about the the pros and cons? Today I will be talking about why Hillary Clinton would make a good candidate to vote for. I believe Hillary Clinton is the best candidate because she supports disability rights, LGBT, and women’s rights. Clinton is the candidate I endorse for the 2016 presidential election since I believe she can make a change happen in today 's society.
President Obama is leaving office soon, and many people think there is not a lot of change he can do anymore because he is simply running out of time. President Obama made it clear that he was not going to leave office without trying to help the nation one last time. He decided to endorse Mrs. Clinton as the next president. There have been multiple times when he has spoken out and against Mr. Trump and his comments, and Mr. Trump in return has also made disgusting remarks against President Obama. Even though he spoke against one candidate, it did not mean he automatically endorsed Mrs. Clinton.
White Privilege Everyone right now is so worried about too many different things. “How am I going to deal with my college debt?” “How could I possibly sell enough weed to pay my rent?” “Why can’t people see how perfect Trump is for this country?” or even “Why do I have to wait a month for my iPhone7?” The world is truly in a time of struggle, but amidst the struggles, we can’t lose sight of the real important people that deserve our attention, more specifically, the ones that gave us this amazing country: straight, white men. Black lives matter? Not as much as White lives. Who else is qualified to run corporate America?
Presidential candidates have different beliefs and values however the most basic form of respect did not occur during the campaign, just like in the movie “Freedom Writers” the most basic form of respect was not shown. Each party, the democrats and republicans, did not use their parties values to help unite the country. No matter what one believes, and before he has even been in office, there are many that are angry and have been rioting based on judgement about Donald Trump. This can be compared to the movie where the students judged each other simply on race and not having a true understanding of who they are and their situation. Judging others based on fear, race or religion is a significant issue that needs to be solved so that our county’s future has more peace than hate.
However, these internet memes do not address the fact that Trump barely addressed the discrimination towards the LGBTQIA community before and during the election. Additionally, these memes do help further the ongoing debate between both conservatives and liberals who have a very clear line on who should use what restroom. Memes that address certain issues that are currently going on in politics, allow for many people to anonymously post facts or opinions about each candidate or political party. Trump’s actions, and the politicians that have been appointed to his cabinet, have proved that he does not care about the current issues going on. Many people of the LGBTQIA community were expecting President Trump to address the “bathroom debate” during his Address to Congress, but he did not bring it up at all.
However, the teacher was still not satisfied, saying all is vanity, "a chasing after the wind, there is nothing to be gained under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 4.9). Self-interest can lead to self-destruction especially when it is hurting others. Living in a capitalistic society this is something often seen and sadly many are immune to the pain they cause others, for example in September of 2011 the GOP presidential debate, CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer presented a hypothetical question about whether an uninsured 30-year-old working man in a coma should be treated. Congressman Ron Paul responded with “what he should do is whatever he wants to do and assume responsibility for himself, that 's what freedom is about. The follow up question was “are you saying that society should just let him die?” To which the crowd shouted
According to Josh Sanburn of Time.com, “In 2000, British politician Denis Healey, who had been involved in Bilderberg for decades, told the Guardian, “To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So, we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.” (Sanburn, 2016) Meeting minutes are not written down and no votes are taken which causes conspiracy theorists to question even more just what goes on at these secret meetings. Some of the more notable members of this secret society include Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and in the past, David Rockefeller and David Cameron, who is the British Prime
A job has working hours and demands which are expected to be met; beyond that there is no need for the public to have access to information and knowledge that extends into the politician’s private life. Already being under a vast amount of pressure this invasion of their privacy can bring family or personal drama to the surface. An example of this is the Bill Clinton- Monica Lewinsky affair scandal, where president at the time, Bill Clinton, was accused of having an affair with his intern, Monica Lewinsky. They both denied accusations which prompted the impeachment of Bill Clinton despite his success as a president; being responsible for the lowest employment rate in 30 years. Furthermore, allowing the public access to political leaders’ private information allows for personal attacks which bear no importance to political issues.
I feel the United States is a nation being hamstrung by corruption, and politicians that favor money over the well-being of the people. With the electoral primaries underway the GOP and DNC are showcasing flaws that question whether democracy exists in the United States. During the Iowa primaries, Republican Ted Cruz told voters Ben Carson would be dropping out. This strategy by Cruz led him to beat Trump by 3.3%. On the other side of the fence, Democrat Hilary Clinton hasn’t yet been indicted for the controversy surrounding her e-mails.
Some people think that the soldiers are simply liabilities trying to drain government funds with their “PTSD” and “Depression”. However, if someone witnessed an explosion big enough to destroy two blocks, or saw a soldier dying on their way to the airport, perhaps they would understand. It made me feel bad, because I never supported the veterans’ cause. I never donated, or bought poppies. The dark reality struck me as I realized how inconsiderate and foolish I had been for my fifteen years of existence.
While on his presidential campaign tour, which was already off to a rocky start, anti-FDR press released an article that said the president had left his dog, Fala, behind accidentally and spent “20,000,000” of “American taxpayers” money to retrieve him (Weintraub 124). This preposterous and untrue rumor spread like wildfire and truly caused the American people to shift their standpoint towards Governor Dewey, putting him in the electoral lead for some time. However, FDR and his journalists were not going to give up this campaign without a
Vox Magazine states, “While the world rages on and problems like starvation, a massive refugee crisis, and homelessness remain unfixed, people in America — including an American presidential candidate — are arguing over a red beverage container.” Also, this debate has drawn focus away from the November 13th massacre in France. Instead of arguing over a cup, these celebrities should be trying to educate their audiences about worldwide issues. But at the end of the day, Starbucks probably did not intend this major response to its holiday cup. Instead, Starbucks intended that the cup be treated as a blank canvas, according to an article on Today. “Over the past few years, our customers have been showcasing their work on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, and we even held a contest to support this creativity.
He has been capturing viewers’ attention for a while, he has gained many followers. Why should we support ignorance? Why should we have an unruly president? Donald Trump isn’t even able to unite Americans at his own presidential rallies, so I’m sure he isn’t able to unite the United States. Donald Trump’s motto is “Let’s Make America Great Again”, America cannot be great if our future president isn’t great.
The possibilities of Donald Trump winning the election are low because his votes can be drastically affected by his previous negative comments. This implies that Trump has been targeting people with racial negative comments that affect the whole United States. “The American people are not going to elect a president who insults Mexicans, Muslims, women, veterans, insulting virtually everybody who is not like Donald Trump.” (Bernie Sanders) This statement supports my opinion in which Donald Trump’s election can come to an end with his discriminating comments. The following points out the possibilities of Donald Trump winning the election are low because other candidates have a higher demand of votes. “I’m the only candidate, “she said,” who has
In the chapter “Don’t Get Mad; Don’t Get Even; Get Ahead” Matthews discusses ways one cannot waste energy trying to get back at an enemy. It states how one should focus efforts on getting simply ahead of the enemy. The chapter cites the dilemma of former Speaker Newt Gingrich who attempted to shut down various government institutions after Bill Clinton forced him to exit Air Force One from the back. All this did was ruin Gingrich 's political spine. Others like Pat Sullivan, who helped Herbie win but did not receive help in return, tried to get even but fail in an eight year struggle.
