United States currency is supposed to represent what we stand for as a nation. When you see his face what do you think of? The one dollar bill has the face of our first united states president George Washington. Seeing his face I think of him helping to build our country. One of the men who took a stand against Great Britain all those years ago.
JFK and the CIA didn 't need to try to assassinate Fidel Castro and fail 682 times. They just needed to talk it out like adults, and say if you take them out of Cuba we take them out of Turkey. That 's what happened when JFK started getting nervous and talked to Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev. That 's how the Cuban missile crisis ended with only 1 death. The Cuban missile crisis was a peaceful ending.
However he did not know who hoisted the flag. In the film, it accurately depicts how the president meets the three flag raisers in his office and encouraging them to help the government with the war bonds drive. It also shows him learning about the other flag raisers. Doc Bradley, Ira Hayes and Rene Gagnon were the main cause for the war bonds drive to be successful during World War II. They were soldiers that gave the citizens more hope than celebrities.
Due to the fact he is a modern hero, all modern heroes should exhibit this. Another time Atticus demonstrates this is when the trial in which he is defending a black man is drawing to a close. When Atticus is pleading to the jury he makes this statement regarding fairness, “I am confident that you gentlemen will review without passion the evidence you have heard, come to a decision and restore this defendant to his family. In the name of [G-d], do your duty” (275). This seems like standard closing remarks but in this context, it means to judge the case without the racism one would expect from an all-white jury.
Kennedy wisely sticks to using pathos throughout his entire speech, rather than relying on his then-minimal ethos or allowing his stirring speech to become bogged down by logos represented by the dull facts and figures of statistics. As a very young President just starting his first term, Kennedy lacks the reputation and reliability that an older, more experienced politician might have available. While it is true that most of the nation had seen him on television during the Nixon-Kennedy Presidential debates, those debates were the near-total of the people’s exposure to the dashing young President, and a pretty face does not a solid political reputation make! However, no matter how dashing and heroic he might have appeared to be in those
Since the inception of our constitution in 1787, there has only been 4 elections where the Electoral College has allowed the future president-elect candidate to win the election, despite losing the popular vote. 4/57 elections is probably something that political scientists don’t lose sleep over, but it is a topic that is worth mentioning and discussing, especially after the controversial presidential election in 2000. From my point of view, I believe that the method we use in selecting our presidents is flawed and ineffective for a couple of reasons. First, the Electoral College has far fewer votes than the American people, yet their vote has a lot more meaning. With 538 delegates representing the Electoral College, it is unfair and inequitable to the millions of people who devote their time and energy to stand in long
How should history view Rutherford B. Hayes: hero or villain? Explain. Rutherford Hayes the 19th President of the United States didn’t win the popular vote but, “was elected president after a partisan Electoral commission awarded him all of the electoral votes in dispute.” Hayes appears to have a good personality and to have good intentions for the country. It Also seems that he has a very good reputation for honesty. “Hayes’ presidency is an excellent illustration of how party stalemate and equilibrium can hamper effective executive leadership.” Some events Hayes’ presidency that can lead to see him as a hero are the following.
A court is only as sound as its jury, and a jury is only as sound as the men who make it up. I am confident that you gentlemen will review without passion the evidence you have heard, come to a decision, and restore this defendant to his family. In the name of God, do your duty." This quote is an example of how Atticus was pleading to the jury to make the right choice. He wanted justice to happen even if he was the only man in the whole town to stand up for an African American, Tom Robinson.
When capital punishment came back in 1976, 1,458 people have been executed since. According to the Guardian, the United States is one of four countries in the whole world that has capital punishment. The others being Iran, North Korea, and Yemen. Initially you would think the United States would no longer have capital punishment in place, but it is still believed today by many people and can be interpreted as “eye for an eye”. Personally, I do not think that a person shall be sentenced to death regardless of how bad the crime is.
“The danger that innocent people will be executed because of errors in the criminal justice system is getting worse. A total of 69 people have been released from death row since 1973 after evidence of their innocence emerged. Twenty-one condemned inmates have been released since 1993, including seven from the state of Illinois alone. Many of these cases were discovered not because of the normal appeals process, but rather as a result of new scientific techniques, investigations by journalists, and the dedicated work of expert attorneys, not available to the typical death row inmate.”(Innocence and the Death Penalty: The Increasing Danger of Executing ). In the article it shows that it was at times that there were innocent people waiting to be executed even though they were innocent and were lucky that evidence of their innocence emerged if it didn't they would have be executed.
