All of these wonderful freedoms are given to us so that we can live in a country that is truly free. My responsibility to America is to practice my given duties as a citizen, use my freedoms for good and not for evil, and use any of my abilities for the good of my country, helping in any way possible. I should vote in elections. It is something that other countries do not have the privilege of doing. I should respect others, listening to their opinions and ideas, and not condemning them.
Barber’s claim is sound because it agrees with the noble ideals set by our founding fathers and can be applied universally as every country naturally wishes to have a peaceful and educated society. Barber uses logic in arguing for mass public education, quoting two of the most influential founders of our democracy, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. Barber knows that in a democracy, the people decide what is best for the nation, and if the nation is uneducated they will make the wrong decisions. Jefferson and Adams warn about those “tyrannies” of an uneducated society, which is why Barbers claims are truthful that education allows people to “think critically and act with deliberation”(6). To answer the question of how a society achieves equality and opportunity for its citizens, one should totally disregard William A. Henry’s callous remarks and illegitimate claims in his essay, “In Defense of Elitism.” His reasoning for selective educational opportunities tries to divide our country, which will discriminate individuals, amplify class
Furthermore, it is certainly not okay to get a person fired for their political beliefs. As citizens of a country built upon the concept of freedom, we should respect that. We should all respect and accept the fact that having different views is okay because that is how we learn from each other in order to continue grow as a great
If you remember to always use kind words and actions nobody should have to be afraid. If we want to keep the United States as “the land of the free and the home of the brave” then we need to strive to be as good as we can. Responsibility is not a four letter word. It 's not something bad that we have to fear. My basic responsibilities to America and your basic responsibilities are the same.
To me, the american dream is to be freedom and have freedom of speech. Freedom and freedom of speech are what many americans want. Having freedom means that you have the right to say what you want as long as it’s not illegal, and it gives americans the right to say what they want even if it offends another person. The following text show evidence of the american dream: “Home” by Dierks Bentley, “Coming to America” by Neil Diamonds. In Bentley's “Home” he believes that the struggle is worth it, and to him the American dream is the struggle.
How to be a good American means following the laws. By doing that it makes you an good citizen. You have to give back what you get for example; giving out your opinion and being able to have freedom. Being an good American means being able to speak your mind or anything really and being able in a way be a leader for people or even for yourselves.

also to have a good education. It means that I can say "The Pledge of Allegiance" and that I can vote for the President,and the Mayor. But to me it means most of all to be free and to be proud that I live in the United States of America because not all people have the benefit of being free some people out there are fighting half killing each other just to support themselves and their families. Being an American also means that we are treated equally no matter what color skin we may have, and it doesn 't matter what culture you are from and we also have rights that give us the ability of freedom of speech; i also get to go to school for free and you can go wherever you want u want to go to the beach or maybe to the mall or just to a friends house u can go in peace and parents can let their kids go to school or on field trips by themselves without the fear of their kids getting hurt. because we are american we can have privileges like caring for your community like say You could join a trash pickup.
After all, as a sociologist, we need to realize that oppression needs a solution, specifically powerlessness and violence because it still occurs today. People should feel that they have the resources and opportunities to succeed. Also, they are able to voice their own opinions at school, work, and surroundings without been seen as an inferior. Dominant groups or professionals should allow more privileges to the powerless group and provide them with opportunities to develop their skills overtime. It is also essential that school and jobs can teach a powerless individual to become powerful and have the right to be respected at all times.
While these activities are disturbing, and should definitely have been more well-regulated and transparent, they are necessary for the security of our country. Meanwhile, on the other end of the spectrum, freedom is balancing out these security checks. The American people value there various civil liberties and freedoms greatly, viewing the bill of rights as one of the most important documents in history. There are even entire political parties and action groups dedicated to defending the rights given to us in the first, second, fourth, and various other
I believe this has helped me to stay focus on what I want even when everyone else thinks otherwise. I understand that police officers are not always liked or appreciated, but I’m not going into this profession to be liked or loved by the rest of the world. I’m doing this for myself, because I believe that this is the best profession for me and believe that this is an honorable profession regardless of what others may think about it. In my opinion, joining the police force is the right thing to do; and I believe that we should all do the right thing all the time and not only when it is convenient or when we have the support of
