On November 22, 1963 tragedy struck the United States. The President of the United States, John F. Kennedy (JFK), had been assassinated in Dallas Texas. The assassin was a lone gunman by the name of Lee Harvey Oswald… or that’s what we are told. After the assassination theories began to emerge as to other reasons the president could have been assassinated. But the real question that arose was, could these conspiracies theories be true? With the many conspiracy theories revolving around the JFK assassination, many of the conspiracies make sense. The multiple gunmen conspiracy, Lyndon B. Johnson conspiracy, C.I.A conspiracy, and the Cuban government theory all have very valid points as to why they could be true.
The United States spends more on its defense than any other country in the world, in a democratic state whose constitution Alexander Hamilton helped to inspire. It’s questionable as to what lengths a democratic system should go to keep its citizens safe as ultimately security cannot be unconditionally guaranteed. Having a debate between liberty and security is by no means a new one, its influence on political thought can be profoundly polarizing, as the extremes of both liberty and security can be witnessed around the world and throughout history.
The foundations of the Act were created long before 9/11. However, the 9/11 tragedies were the trigger point that led to the Act’s implementation. The patriot act is frequently seen as un-American because it violates basic freedoms and human rights. For instance, the Act violates privacy. On the other hand, supporters of the patriot act claim that it is the only way for America to ensure national security. Proponents argue that terror events happen because of lack of carefulness in law enforcement. National security issues occur because of the lack of laws for tighter security. Simultaneously, the patriot act increased the abilities of the government. For instance, the Act allows government interception of personal communication through wiretapping and other means. This enables the government to intercept communication among terrorism suspects. Law enforcers can also intercept personal communications of innocent citizens and non-citizens. However, patriot act supporters argue that electronic surveillance of people suspected to be a threat to national security has been in practice long before the patriot act. Secret hearings, warrants, and wiretapping have been around since 1978, based on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance
Issue six is concerning Dr.Doctormans involvement in this case. He had not participated in injection of the lethal dose of medication that would soon kill Mr.Conners. One could argue that he knowingly acted in a manner that accelerated Mr. Connor's death. (Section 2 provision A)
Terry Tempest Williams constructs a convincing argument for why the US government should be honest with its citizens. She stresses the importance of this “transparency” in the government with particular reference to the deadly repercussions of nuclear testing. The US government conducted these nuclear tests because the United States wanted to remain superior in nuclear weaponry around the globe. After World War II ended, the Cold War began, and the United States needed to defend itself and its citizens from the threat of communism from the Soviet Union. “The Korean War was raging. McCarthyism was rampant. Ike was it and the Cold War was hot. If you were against nuclear testing, you were for a Communist regime” (Williams 318). To start the nuclear
Two or three radical scientists have out and out rejected the money related structure is to blame. Preparing, or more especially alluring aptitudes, is logically a fundamental for finding a professional class work. Be that as it may, according to business investigator Joseph Kennedy, our present structure makes a not as much as noteworthy show with respect to of giving the most legitimate getting ready to negligible measure of money, the common limit of a market. He communicates that various review schools, especially in the poorest neighborhoods, disregard to train the fundamental capacities of examining, forming, and number juggling. Auxiliary schools in like manner encounter the evil impacts of poor execution, even as a bit of the brightest understudies spend their lesser and senior years in a holding configuration sitting tight for colleges. In any case, he doesn 't oblige his criticism to basic and helper guideline, as he proceeds to inspect how the school system furthermore indicates honest to goodness advertise dissatisfactions, as a colossal piece of government help just funds instructive cost increases, rather than growing moderateness.

The 1966 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was drafted in response to demands from leaders in the press and key individuals within Congress for greater access to government information in order to strengthen accountability in its personnel practices, domestic and foreign intelligence gathering efforts, foreign policy decisions, and other activities. The FOIA serves as a mechanism for the public?s right to know which in effect threatens the government?s right to protect state secrets and other privileged information. As a result, the process of implementing, interpreting, and applying the FOIA over time has been shaped by these competing interests.
Even with the emergence of domestic spying and snooping on citizens of the United States, the country is relatively secure. There is a fine line that must be walked in order to meet the needs of providing security for the nation and providing the civil liberties that are afforded to the citizens of the country. This line has become blurred since the attacks of 9/11 with the addition of numerous laws and acts to assist the federal government in meeting the threats posed to the nation. The cost of some of these laws and acts will continue to be looked at for the foreseeable future, as they should be. Once the government starts taking away civil liberties in the name of national security and security for the population, the country’s foundation is all but lost and the oppression begins of the very citizens the system was designed to protect.
"In time of war, the lot is silent " Cicero. The U.S government should have the right to violate citizens ' civil liberties in the name of national security, but only when necessary.

“The data broker Aristotle Inc. markets its ability to identify 190 million voters by more than 500 consumer data points such as their credit rating and size of their mortgage.” “An intrepid 2012 thesis by a Harvard undergraduate, Melissa Oppenheim, found that fifty-one members of the U.S House of Representatives bought data from Aristotle using some of their congressional allowances.” (Angwin, Julia. Dragnet Nation: A Quest for Privacy, Security, and Freedom in a World of Relentless Surveillance. p. 33. Print.) This imbalance must be fixed for a democracy cannot thrive without a cohesive system where we work together equally. This also makes it so the majority representative people cannot be elected in the government making it so that the
