The Electoral College is a good antidote to the poison of regionalism because it forces presidential candidates to seek support throughout the nation” (Samples, 2000). John Samples earned his Ph.D. in political science from Rutgers University. He is the publisher and President at the Cato Institute. Samples is an author, who has published a book and many scholarly articles in Society, History of Political Thought and Telos. John also believes that if we want to demolish the Electoral College, then were in return demolishing the Senate as well.
One example we see from Mr. Milk where is comparing the lack of hope the homosexuals have for their future to struggles that all minority races have come to know such as unemployment and foreign language. Also Dr. King uses the use of a metaphor when comparing other countries speed in constitutional rights as “jetlike” while America “creep at a horse-and-buggy pace.” Mr. milk 's speech is very powerful because he is a living example as a homosexual individual in an political office. On the other hand Mr. King 's letter is important because that was the only way for him to communicate with the outside world. In his letter, Mr. King makes clear that he will fight all injustice in any way he can despite of the consequences, and the fact that he is writing from a jail cell only intensifies his

The purpose of the article “Monday 's takeaways:Clinton gets under Trump’s skin,” by The Associated Press, was to inform the reader that Clinton really did a great job in the debate. The speaker was an educated writer speaking to an audience made up of decided voters and maybe even undecided voters.The subject was about the debate that took place with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The audience, speaker, and subject affect the text because the speaker makes sure that the audience knows that he is clearly on Clinton 's side of the subject.The text appeals to logos because it did use facts based off of dates and times. It also appealed to ethos and pathos because it was also an opinion, which made the author lose credibility and appeal to
Point of view plays a very strong role in the novel because it is what decides what readers know and don't know. In this case, it decided how readers feel and helps feed ideas into their minds. "I knew exactly what to make of it, and it made me mad enough to spit...what business had dad in healing that man...what right had Holgren to cross paths with the Great God Almighty"(80). The use of specific words in this case is what gives the readers the idea of the event being a miracle. Rueben's use of the word "dad" and "Great God Almighty" causes readers to believe with Rueben that his dad is comparable to a god.
I believe in the speech Patrick Henry reached ehis goal from the help use of his rhetorical techniques he uses throughout his speech. Authors that use many different kinds of rhetorical techniques often have a better speeches and prove their point with more evidence and well written thought out information. Patrick henry uses metaphor, logos, ethos, to persuade the Virginia lawmakers and citizens to go to war. Throughout his speech henry uses metaphors into his reading to convince his audience. The first metaphor compares the siren they hear to signing a sign of peace.
The Symbolic Meanings of the Hold Button While facing a life-threatening illness, one tries to hold on and tries to control things around them. This is very prevalent in Angels in America by Tony Kushner. The hold button that Roy uses contains a good deal of symbolism in regards to his control over his life, but also to his control over words and their meanings. Through this, one can see his continuing attempts to gain more control over his life as it is slipping away from him. Not only is Roy’s use of the hold button symbolic of his repressed gay identity, but it also enables him to assert his dominance and control over words, his fate, and others.
Zinn talks about the discrimination against gays and lesbians. He finds that “to combat discrimination against them, to give themselves a sense of community, to overcome shame and isolation”(Zinn Online). Community was completely necessary to get what their agenda passed in the country. Community gives people strength and Harvey Milk realized this. This is why Harvey emphasized smaller elections closer to the people.
John F. Kennedy, in his inaugural address demonstrates great uses of many different rhetorical strategies to make his address very informal and effective to the American people. Kennedy’s purpose of this text was to get his goals across to the American people for his presidency and unite the people to help achieve a common goal. President John F. Kennedy starts his speech by listing former Presidents and other political members and finishes with fellow citizens. This implies his respect for his job and the respect he has for the American citizens. The people he list have different political views which shows how he can work with people to accomplish goals no matter what party they are in.
Lasswell’s definition of politics has been in the past supported by prominent political scientists such as Abraham Kaplan and Robert A. Dahl, both men believe the study of politics is largely to do with the use of influence by those who find themselves in influential positions. In their book “Power and Society: an introduction to the social sciences” both Thomas Dye and Brigid Harrison define politics as “the study of power”. One of the Oxford dictionary’s definitions of power is “the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behaviour of others or the course of events”, thus proving there is most certainly a very close link between politics and influence. The study of politics is certainly the study of influence and the influential, as it looks at how exactly men like Barack Obama and David Cameron use their power to influence millions of individuals on a global, civic and personal level.
