Also, Iran and Afghanistan also known as ISIS, are miserable terrorists, and this falls under the president’s job to make sure that they don’t come into the United States. The President of the United States has so many jobs to complete that is it more complex than any human being on the
Gallant heroes must not back down from a challenge and an audacious hero will take risks to help commoners. Courageous heroes are brave because they are fearless and courageous heros also help out the public. According to Sam Adams, a hero of the revolutionary war once said “ The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” By saying this he showed he had respect for the american citizens and their beleifs. Sam was one of the most courageous heros because he was the first person to address the Boston Massacre, the day after the massacre happened! Samuel Adams is courageous because his respectful political views and he was well respected for his care for the american people, and he was the first to address the boston massacre.
For both the U.S. public and the Johnson administration, the heavy fighting in early 1968 brought with it a demand for reexamination of American policies. As historian Doris Kearns Goodwin has recorded, Johnson similarly insisted that his policies had not failed and that he had not been forced to begin American de-escalation after the Tet Offensive. The resulting pressures forced Lyndon B. Johnson to confront some of the hardest issues that any American president has ever faced. They led him, in the end, to choose the path of negotiation, de-escalation, and tentative disengagement as less dangerous to America’s domestic stability, economic health, and international stature than the highly uncertain path of more arms and troops. This proud politician, nearing the end of more than thirty years of public service, clung stubbornly to the illusion that he could still salvage an honorable settlement of the war that he knew would forever define his
Toner’s three O’s, owing, ordering, and oughting. According to the Barnes Center lesson on Ethical Leadership a leader who possesses this strength shows that they owe others respect and dignity, they understand that they are ordered to do what is right no matter what, they are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, and understand that they ought to do what is needed to help others no matter how hard that may be. Churchill knew this and it was never more evident than when gave a speech in 1946 from the U.S denouncing the Soviet’s propaganda of spreading communism. According to History.com, Winston Churchill accused the Soviet Union of being the biggest threat to Christian civilization and for trying to spread communism throughout the world. This was the first time that another leader called out the Soviet Union for being a threat to the European values and it was labeled “The Iron Curtain Speech”.
In the writing "Civil Obedience" by Henry David Thoreau, I can see the depth he goes into trying to explain how America's government should respect us as much as we respect them. He uses very descriptive words that make me understand where he is coming from. The idea of this writing was to make all of America agree with him and stand up to the government. Thoreau states, "I do not care to trace the course of my dollar, if I could, till it buys a man or a musket to shoot one with — the dollar is innocent — but I am concerned to trace the effects of my allegiance". I feel like in this, he shows how he doesn't necessarily care about the past of the government, or what has happened, rather what will happen.
As stated in the Articles of Impeachment of Andrew Johnson, he “did unlawfully, and in violation of the Constitution and laws of the United States, issue and order in writing for the removal of Edwin M. Stanton from the office of Secretary for the Department of War” (citation). This statement reveals how Johnson fired Edwin M. Stanton, who was his only secretary at the time, and replaced him. This is a violation of the law wether it happened once or more and a president should not have excuses when it comes to breaking the law. This contrasting view also believes it was reasonable because Johnson thought that if he did not fire him, it would have been unconstitutional. Later in history, Congress repealed the act which he broke.
The Tonkin Gulf Resolution was passed by Congress, it allowed President Lyndon B. Johnson to take any action that he thought would help protect the U.S. Troops in Southeast Asia and the individuals in the United States. President Lyndon B. Johnson gained full authority, no one else can take any actions. He was basically on his own. Before the Tonkin Gulf Resolution, Johnson wanted to expand the war, but he was afraid that the other people would not support him.
In the history textbook, it sounds like our nation is the best and the greatest, but when you find the truth about of our nation, it makes a total difference. You might think, “Why am I here?” “Is it safe for me to stay in this nation?” Everything starts from the government. Because their duty is to rule the nation, so they get the credit or the blame. Although some people disagree with this idea because people are not perfect and they make the mistakes, but this is above the limit line of mistakes. It is intentionally done for it.
Writing from the perspective of a professor at the University of New York, and applauding President John F. Kennedy for his concerns about the world. In my speech, I tried to use a 1st person perspective as I am impersonating Stephen F. Cohen. I used quotes from John F. Kennedy’s speech such as, "Peace is the most important topic on our earth” and, “The United States, as the world knows, will never start a war” to show relation to his speech but also to show understanding of his remarks.
From building libraries, to handling the Civil War with intelligence, and tying the nation back together and building schools, George Washington had started it all. He was one of our great Founding Fathers of the Constitution, and without a start, there would be nothing. In the same manner, Washington did fought to keep our country from invasion. He was not the type of president to have power over his head and demand unreasonable things. Even after the war, he was one to lead the country back to peace and keep the nation safe and away from
