Corporation should have a first amendment right to spend as much money as they want to influence the outcome of an election. However when corporations, donate unlimited amount of money, it is to get something in return. Which leads to corruption because candidates are more likely to be drawn by the money and change their positions so that it aligns with the business, unions and only benefit the rich. That in itself goes against the first amendment because the average american can not have their free speech herd over the millions of dollars donated by
However, the British Government was in serious debt at the time of its extreme taxing of the colonists. National debt doubled from £75 million in 1754 to £133 million in 1763, as money to finance the war was borrowed heavily from British and Dutch bankers. (website about taxes) Because of this enormous debt, the British needed to make up for it by setting new taxes into affect. It is arguable that the debt was in part a burden of the colonists ' as the war ended to their advantage, and was undertaken upon their account. It is also debatable whether or not the colonies were obligated to help out their mother country in this way.
I was asked a question which is: will you reenlist and fight for our country or will you quit and go home.I am going to reenlist for three reasons which are: I want to have freedom, Washington needs more men, and Congress is bringing more supplies. The first reason I am going to reenlist because I want freedom. Britain should not lay down huge taxes (Thomas Paine page 153). This reason makes me want to reenlist because Britain lays down huge taxes, and there are strict acts. I also couldn’t even afford to live in a house without losing so much money because of the taxes.
“Most of the sins of politics are derivative of this larger sin — the need to win.” (Obama, 109) In any political campaign money is a much needed resource. “Money can’t guarantee victory”, however “without money, and the television ads that consume all the money, you are pretty much guaranteed to lose.” (Obama, 109) To gain the money to run a campaign in American many side deals have to be done with sponsors. Not the mention the time and effort put into gain such high amounts of money, it took three months for Obama’s campaign to raise just $250,000 and fall flat of their $500,000 goal. Our government is flawed but it manages to keep our country
In theory this sounds like a great idea but it would require a large tax increase that most successful people in America at the time would most likely not want to pay. They would raise the idea of Social Darwinism once America is successful and question why their money they earned is going to the unsuccessful. He has the idea that the government should limit one person’s wealth to 50 million dollars. This cap may seem large to the average citizen but to people that had massive amounts of money like the Rockefeller family this would merely be a fraction of their
if we want to continue growing then we need the help of Britain. Leaving them will slow us down drastically. And even if we win the war it will be hard to get back on our feet. So make the logical decision colonists and stay with Great Britain so we can prevent the consequences that will come and the losses we will
The name is a bit misleading because it suggests that the ones who were at war were the French against the Indians. This is not the case though, The French were vastly outnumbered compared to the British so they relied on the natives, also enemies of the British, to help them defeat the British. Although the extra men didn’t alter the outcome of the war it changed something in the colonies. Just like any other war, it costs money to have soldiers, weapons, and ammunition. The French and Indian war nearly doubled the national debt of the British so they decided to raise taxes on the American colonists in an attempt to raise money.
We loved to watch our favorite athletes win a championship. But athletes are paid an insane amount of money today. Athletes should not be paid huge amounts of money because many athletes only work for 5-10 years and make more than one family in a decade, are sports really so important that we should spend trillions of dollars every year on them, and there are more important career paths that deserve better recognition and better pay. How
The stakes could not be higher, if we don't change how the world produces and distributes its food than the suffering in violence in the past few years will be repeated but a thousand times worse but luckily today we have climbed and demographic modeling software that are far more reliable .These models are quite clear, the years 2050-2080 are probably not going to be as productive as the ones between 1950 and 1980, but this doesn't necessarily mean disaster. We can avoid this nightmare and replace it with a vision of a world, where no one needs to starve. We have the solutions, all we need now is the will to act on
The U.S- Mexico border is 1,969 miles long and would take a rough estimate of $22.4 billion dollars to secure it. Arizona has raised $50 million in private donations for it. So we have some of the money, but nobody wants to take a step in making our border safer. The government would also have to buy some private land in order to build the fence and would also have to get border security (‘’What would it take to secure our border’’). It is obviously a huge expense, but it is something that needs to be done.
Britain had invested a lot of money into the war, so therefore their war cost was remarkably high (National Park Service), so they tried to raise their Tax revenue considerably high un-noticed. Without a representative, the Colonists in, what we now know as America, realized this change. They began to protest against the high taxes, and their famous quote was “No Taxation without Representation!” (A&E Networks) Because they were being taxed, without any consent of representatives. These are half of the reasons why the war started now; obviously, this was obviously changed today, as now taxes are decided on the costs of Government facilities, and not even every of them. The elected representatives of the legislature branch decides the taxes, and they use taxes to pay for government facilities and people who own a job in the government.
