Although, Thoreau does not like the way government rule however his not an anti-government. He believes the government is necessary for ruling the country, but the corrupt government is not beneficial at all because it is only benefiting people who are involved in the politics. He believes government power should come from the people and citizens should receive all the advantage than political leaders. Therefore, Thoreau thinks the current government is flawed; thus, we must create new form political system. When he mentions this statement his intentions become more clear “I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government.
If enough people signed the petition the government would have to vote on whether or not the law would be passed. Voters could also decide whether or not an official could be removed from office with a recall. Referendum allowed citizens to spurn or approve new laws introduced by the government.

Debates between the two sides can sway your vote to one side or the other depending on what the candidates say. During the election year of 1984, Walter Mondale was the democratic nominee for president. Geraldine Ferraro was the first woman nominated to run as a vice presidential candidate by a major party. Mondale used the strategy of testimonials or endorsements as his political propaganda, targeting retired people, paperworkers, and Asian Americans. The information of Mondale to have used this type of propaganda is in his ads, such as “Asian Americans for Mondale Ferraro” and “Retirees Support Mondale-Ferraro” (Doc A).
We’ve been trying to get rid of the Electoral College for the past couple years now, but we as the people have failed to act and therefore they will put it to the side and say “Don't worry, we will get to it”. No longer should we stand for this we have to insure that votes are actually making a difference in our country. What is the point not voting if we are just ignored and tossed aside? The Electoral College is the sole reason why some people just do not care about voting, because they feel like they don't make a difference in the matter, and that is correct in some degree because the Electoral College makes it that
Society’s values influence people to construct their personal mores around them, and those who do not are not accepted by society. In our society, those who have well-paying careers are valued above those who do not. So when McCandless decided against following the path society expects him to, his parents were upset. “Chris informed his parents that he had no intention of going to college. When Walt and Billie suggested that he needed a college degree to attain a fulfilling career, Chris answered that careers were demeaning ‘twentieth-century inventions,’ more of a liability than an asset, and that he would do fine without one, thank you” (114).
I also need to state the positions of the speakers and determine if they use good evidence to support their arguments. As the strategists, I am responsible for making plans and connections outside of class. The main expectations for my role were to take good note of the speech that the speaker used and to make create a strategy for my team. Our main goals for the game is to become President of the National Assembly, to maintain a neutral position as an indeterminate member, and to survive the French Revolution. On the first day of class, we went around and visited the different factions and talked to them about the president.
After reviewing the transcript of the debate, as well as in class discussion, I have come to the same conclusion that Cruz did. Cruz makes an effort in the debate to attempt some kind of political acumen, and to emphasize that debates should be about debating issues, rather than making a spectacle about politics. I think the point that was brought up in class, that politics has become more of an 'us-vs-them ', or horse race is particularly apt here. In particular, our lectures on national media, as well as the readings further emphasized the point. National media, such that exists today, has made elections more of a 'sports ' type of election.
Political parties in the United States are organized through specific factors and mainly categorized through three factors. Firstly to begin with the national, the national party has a national chair that speaks for a specific party. The national party chair is the head of the committee. The chair is picked in two ways one he can be chosen by the current president or through the new presidential candidate. He has the right to place a person due to the time or duration they have been in.
I will be focused on the importance of voting for the president themselves is important. Individuals whom are over the age 18 and have a vailidated citisenship of the country they wish to vote on, have the opretunitiy to vote on several different ascepts of the government. Some states allow 17-year-olds to vote in primaries and/or register to vote if they will be 18 before the general election. Before the presidents can make it into the general election, they must first pass the Primary-election. The primary election very similar to the general election in that voting ballouts are handed out.
But the problem is, we seem to have forgotten the foundation of these rights and our very existence. We live in a day and age where, despite the advancement in technologies and our understanding of science, our understanding towards the importance of life and its accompanying rights is rather miniscule. The people have the responsibility to abolish the current government who seem to not really care so much about majority of America. And yet, we the people are not being heard. Take this gun violence issue that our country is facing for instance.
An individual vote should be counted. (another word for according) to the 14th amendment that states “”, meaning that the citizens of the United States need “fair representation”. Because of the Electoral College, it is not (another word for happning). This (another word for misinterpretation) has been (another word for proven) in at least two elections and people are getting (another word for fed up) with the failure of democracy. The Declaration of Independence states, “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government”.
