Washington begins with the notion that without religion, there can be no morality. From there, he addresses all of the potential concerns of a nation that lacks moral character to graduate from its infant stage into a more mature society. In his view, Americans must have strong moral character for patriotism to grow and American government to strengthen domestically and internationally. To this end, Washington’s Farewell uses a variety of principled and pragmatic arguments to convince his readers that morality is necessary to prevent the new American government from slipping into the chaos of individual enrichment and European-style
He began to write a pamphlet that he called Common Sense. This pamphlet, published on January 10,1776, explained his reasoning for why New England should fight for independence. He felt that being part of Great Britain would drag the colonies into wars that weren’t New England’s problem. He also felt that by being a British nation, they would still be persecuted by what religion they followed, thus making their journey from England useless. One of the last reasons he felt that they should not be a British nation was that Britain did not care about what happened in New England.
Throughout the history of American Constitution, almost 5000 amendments have been introduced in the Congress. However only 27 amendments have been ratified by the Congress.The first ten amendments to the Constitution of the U.S. were passed and ratified in December 1791 by the Congress. The document was written and codified by the Founding Father, James Madison. The second part of amendments was adopted separately. It was a historical moment since after such resolutions the lives of American citizens have changed incredibly.
The papers that they would write detailed how the Constitution would provide “a remedy for the diseases most incident to Republican Government” and to “secure the public good and private rights” (Fed #10) arguing over concepts that they felt were key to providing this security. One of their main objections against the Articles of Confederation was that the “Separation of Powers” maintained in the Articles was not an effective way to protect the public against potential abuses. The Federalist argues that each department should have a will of its own and have as little as possible to do with the appointment of members of the other branches; that each department should have enough power to carry out its mission an them limit its power so that it cannot become to tyrannical.

Going Against The Government Ronald Reagan once said, “Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” This quote says that the government is put in place to protect it’s people not to interfere and run their lives. With this quote Reagan is stating that the government does not have the right to take control of our lives. Many people often contemplate whether it is appropriate to go against the government or not. One should be able to voice their opinions and not be afraid. Therefore, it is appropriate to go against the government.
He believed if God wanted America to be independent it would have happened, and it is our duty as citizens to obey the laws because we will be disobedient to God. The plain truth is the past of English monarchy will not bear looking into.
"He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good." (168) Jefferson addresses this problem because, the King is refusing to enforce laws the colonists need. It is crucial to point out this problem, for it can lead to further denials by King George III. He is in a way deriving them of their unalienable rights, of which nobody has the right to take. "For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent."
This act is preventing us from living to our full potential. Those Brits have the willingness to come to us, the American Colonists and say that we have to pay extra taxes for something that they do as well, this act is just hypocritical. Everyone deserves the same rights and it’s not fair to discriminate by who you are. The Proclamation of 1763 shows us that we don’t have equal rights as of now considering that American settlers cannot expand west of the Appalachian Mountains.

The court ruling disapproved with states banning interracial marriage because it was unconstitutional. In spite of the fact that a privilege to marry is not listed in the Constitution, the Court said that such a privilege is covered under the Fourteenth Amendment in light of the fact that such choices are vital to our survival and our values. Accordingly, they should essentially reside with the individual instead of with the state. This choice is a conflict with the popular argument that something cannot be an actual constitutional right unless it is spelled out straightforwardly in the U.S. Constitution.

Firstly, I agree that the US should not offer military aid to countries which do not qualify for it.
