If we go back to the past, there are many scandalous things that the government has had done, from the Teapot Dome Scandal to when Carnegie & Rockefeller put a man for president so that they can get more money to the Bill Clinton appeasement and wars that the citizens of the U.S do not approve of. There is probably one event that many people may think is worse and that is the Watergate Scandal. Watergate showed the many flaws that the government had at the time Many people do not know why Watergate occurred when Richard Nixon was leading in many states through his reelection campaign in 1972, he won every single state except Massachusetts basically he was destined to be president again (Hughes). Nixon was already a popular choice as a president as many people liked him because he was slowly removing troops from the not liked war that was the,Vietnam War. Many people of the United States have heard about Watergate and how Nixon is involved, he had a lot of public support from people all over the country for his efforts with dealing of the Vietnam War and other foreign affairs.
Deja Vu As our 'writer ' says,” Candidates who tried to offer a sunnier vision, Carson, Kasich and “Bush.” The 'sunnier ones ' just sat back and let the left wing rant and rave. Not Trump, he stood up on his back legs and told them 'to go to hell ' and how to get there. As Reagan ran against a failed President in 1980 and later in 1984 an earlier version of 'Bernie ' [Mondale]. We now have Trump running against, what is left of a failed president 'Obama ' a failed Secretary of State, who a majority of Americans believes, she lies and can not be trusted. But, is well loved and adored [worshiped] by the left wing MSM.
Ronald Reagan found many ways of bringing the government back to what the founding father imagined it to be. As president he cut the budget and ended the Cold War. He got many United States citizens revert to the conservative way of thinking. “Republicans believe every day is the fourth of July, the Democrats believe every day is April15th.” Ronald Reagan created a way of thinking that brought the government to its knees. (Web article from Time) He brought down the budget and told the soviets no more.
This caused panic about health and brought with it heavy dietary policies from the federal government. The fifth event is how rock and roll defeated communism. Not only is rock the embodiment of freedom, but it became a vessel for anti communist extremists to reach young people. The sixth event is how Ronald Reagan wrongfully pulled out of Lebanon. Schweikart explained how this move made America seem weak and put a target on our back for terrorist organizations.
The fight seems never ending and it appears that there may never be an end to it. All Reagan really did was close a chapter in the book of the cold war but there are still many unread stories and chapters. The collapse certainly did not mean the end of the cold war although many American history books will have you believe this. The Soviets could not keep up with their countries and states so they decided to secede and collapse the union which left Gorbachev to resign and watch the Union go. They were constantly criticized by the US for their flawed system and called it an “evil empire”.
When the North was in power many people lost beliefs on Ngo Dinh Diem (Prime Minister) since he declined the national election. He also outsmarted Bao Dai and became the President of the Republic of Vietnam.(vietnamwar.info). People from South Vietnam then disliked Diem for hate towards Buddhist, and soon after the Viet Cong (National Liberation Front) were created and it was an anti government activists including communists and non-communists (vietnamwar.info). After the war ended, and many people’s lives were ruined many families wanted to immigrate to America and begin a new life in America. People knew they could have more freedom, start over and have a better life with their families.
In society, the vast majority of people are encompassed by the growing economic issues of the modern age. Yet–concerned primarily with themselves–people expect authority to handle any and all crises; however, blame them (namely politicians) when the results are not in their favor. Surprising, when the present meets the past, the differences are not as striking as one may expect. For instance, in 1981 when Ronald Reagan had become the president of the nation, the nation had been in shambles due to the aftermath of the Vietnam War (economic troubles and social unrest unravelling). Understanding the ignorance of the public in regards to acting on problematic issues, he addresses the need for change starting with the people themselves–a lesson
The NRA played a leading role in the defeat of the Gun Show Background Check Bill. Their sheer size alone, consisting of four million members and lobbyists, became a force to be reckoned with. Being that their members are highly passionate about their group, unfortunately it is often less threatening for a senator to side with the NRA than their views than risk their career. The NRA threatened that they would retaliate against supporters of the bill and “called the expanded background checks a first step toward a national gun registry and government confiscation of firearms” (Barrett, Cohen) (Sidlow, Henschen)
Most people might say that President Bush and President Reagan are like comparing vinegar and water they are complete opposite good leaders but yet they were not historical figures. Bush said I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save free market system. Those words would never have been said by Regan, as Bush did a massive spending spree in his last weeks of presidency. Bush claims to be the conservative that Reagan was, early on in his career he challenged the GOP, which Regan won in 1980, Bush and other republican challengers thought his conservatism would be rejected by the voters. It is known that Regan’s record in all aspects is inferior to Bush by advancing conservative principles.
Any individual who wants to be reelected wants to run just as great, or even greater of a campaign to win the election as they once did. However, Bulworth did not, he spoke about exactly what he wanted to talk about to whomever he wanted to talk to. A liberal who later is accused of being conservative politician, despises his life and job. He lost millions of dollars in the market and has no sense of hope for the future. He then signs a lucrative deal with a life insurance company which will give huge amounts of money to his daughter.
