Fighting for equality was a relevant theme in early America; however, fighting was only half the struggle, once you won what happened next was up to the leaders of the new system. In Abraham Lincoln’s speech “ The Second Inaugural Address”, America is nearing the end of the civil war and Lincoln explains what should happen next as their victory approaches. Through the use of rhetorical strategies such as diction, allusion, and syntax the audience connects to Lincoln and his statements while understanding the great capability of America. Throughout Lincolns Speech he often times alludes to references the general population knows about so they can connect to him and his statements while receiving a greater knowledge of his purpose.

The new reform will, furthermore, also grant work permit for those who are eligible, allowing them to work in the country , as it will result in more competitive labour market in the United States. Donald Trump’s Viewpoints Donald Trump is opposed to
Prior to taking POLS 1101, I had already obtained much knowledge about America under British rule, and the struggle that led us to become the independent country we are today. What I did not know is our current government structure and the processes and systems of our government. I also learned more about the Electoral College, the United States Supreme Court, the Nuclear Deal, and Britain’s “question time.” I enjoyed participating in these discussions, because each post required research, exploration, and consideration before meaningful dialogue; it requires students to analyze textbooks, the media, and much more, leading to one gaining a well rounded knowledge on a subject. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to read what my peers had to say on the exact same question, comparing and contrasting our answers and opinions. Two of my favorite trips that we, as a class have taken this semester were: the trip to Congress and the trip to the land of interest groups.
It is fitting that the speech of November 14, 2015, dealt with “giving veterans a chance” (“Weekly Address: Giving Veterans Their Chance” n.p.). In terms of Machiavelli’s principles, the leader of the country rules the nation by employing its “old conditions, and not being unlike in customs, [people] will live quietly together” (Machiavelli 6). The United States is an example of such a place, where every new rulers have different policies, but exhaust every
The hard work of achieving the American dream is where the immigrant’s experience comes from. One program called DACA has helped immigrants, it has granted them a work permit and a legal status to be able to stay in this country and avoid the risk of getting deported. Many of them have lived or have been born in this country and wants to contribute and continue to make it their home when talking about this program. Trump is undecided about what he is going to do with DACA, but during his election
Some education solutions are Dream Act, DACA, and recently they have added DAPA. These programs are here to help young adults go to college and get a degree in what they want to be when they grow up, these programs are both for young adults and adults who want to go to school. The president has been trying to pass the Immigration Reform Act to help immigrants and stop some of the deportation, but hasn’t really succeed in that. For many, including Donald Trump, deporting all of the 12 million immigrants and build a wall, which Mexico will be paying for, is the best solution to all of the immigration problems. They have come up with many good solutions that helps immigrants in their stay here in the United States, and many more that they have come up with but can’t get it to pass through congress because there are many people that do not want them
What do you think being an American is? Is it the freedom were given or the way our politics affect our everyday lives our is it knowing that we are safe and free because we have a good strong army to defend us.

The American dream at one point was what drew people to American; the right to life, liberty, and the happiness. The American dream is the hope to acquire currency, large homes, raise a middle-class family, and pursue what brings people joy in life. But in the year 2016, the American dream becomes hard to believe in. The American dream may still exist, but it is not equally accessible to all Americans. This is true because the American dream is not affordable for everyone, it is not available to everyone from different degrees of education, and race and ethnicity creates large social barriers.
The conversations often makes others get a better insight into my identity. I have constantly helped redefine Americans ' understanding of what it means to be Persian, while simultaneously challenging others to change their understanding of who an American is and how great this country is. For me, these actions have not been the result of choice, but rather simply a fact of life, blessed and lucky to be born an American with my unique identity I would have it no other way. Over the summer I had the opportunity to pursue an internship abroad in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The internship was related to accounting and business analytics.
Being an American is living life how you see fit. A birthplace is only necessary to fill out legalities, it does not determine who you are as a person. Only you can decide that. Do you want to parade your personality to everyone or cower and conform to society’s expectations? Do you want to be afraid of the new or embrace it with open arms?
