We value our freedom above all else, going to nearly any cost to defend it. Along with this, however, we also gain a strong attachment to our privacy, defending it as vivaciously as we do our freedom. This attachment to privacy is evidenced by the outrage expressed at the NSA’s surveillance programs. These programs were set up by the US government to detect terrorists and criminals operating covertly within our borders, and included such activities as warrantless wiretapping and recording of all internet traffic. While these activities are disturbing, and should definitely have been more well-regulated and transparent, they are necessary for the security of our country.
pilots, soldiers and anybody else in the military can be a patriot. in fact there probably the greatest patriots we have. They fight for us, our country and most importantly our freedoms. if we did not have our freedoms then we could go back to everybody being or servant sto others and not being equal. D. Martin Luther King has shaped America into something we today know as normal but things in the past they would look at us like were crazy.
Mr. Hadley describes how he wants them to “make the right choice for the long run” (implying how much more honorable the infantry would be). The irony in that is shown by the way they do actually have the “long run” in mind while making their decisions by picking a branch that will ensure their lives. In John Knowles’ novel, “A Separate Peace” the author uses rhetorical devices to describe how Brinker, Gene, and Mr. Hadley view which branch of the military the boys should enlist in. It is obvious that the author supports Mr. Hadley’s view of picking the more honorable route that ensures fame and glory in the end instead of their lives. An argument between the boys and Mr. Hadley breaks out as Brinker and Gene attempt to defend themselves.
There are many and reasons that the United States is a free country today and Patrick Henry is one of those reasons. Henry was a loyal patriot and believed that the United States had to fight back against the British before it was too late. Henry uses many rhetorical strategies in his speech in order to grasp the attention of the government and the citizens of the U.S. One example of a rhetorical strategy being used is when Henry says that “They tell us sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with such so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger.” Henry is trying to inspire Americans to attempt to make them believe that they are strong enough to fend against the British and their Army. He begins to talk about how the British are constantly gaining more control of the U.S. and eventually
There are many confusions about what it means to be an American or how to become one. Even people that are Americans have delusions about what it means, and even how to respect their culture and history. There are many requirements that have to be meet to become an actual American, or commonly known as a citizen of the United States. The three main things that are required to be an American and uphold the honor that it takes to be an American are, being loyal to the United States, treating the common man with respect, and accepting what other are Americans, no matter their age, culture or ethnicity. To begin, loyalty is the single most important pillar of what it means to be an American.
He also used ethos by appealing to their emotion, after a well written speech about his goals he used this quote to get the American people working and helping America become a flourishing country. In the very next sentence he says, “My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man,” because Kenned knows his audience he said this to establish respect for other countries and appeal to their ethos and make them want to comply to what America says so the whole world can be happy and prosperous. In conclusion President John F. Kennedy used many different rhetorical strategies to get his point across in a speech that was shorter than most Presidents Inaugural Address’s. This shows that Kennedy knew what he was doing during the
As stated by Baylor School, the signers are “men who will risk everything to support the rights of man established by God” (Baylor School). Jefferson wants to inspire the rest of the American colonists to believe in the fight for freedom, even if it meant sacrificing their own lives. The Declaration of Independence is one of the most enduring documents because it reflects the will of the people. The genius of Thomas Jefferson is that he uses the rhetorical devices so effectively in his writing. The audience is moved by his words.
The military leaders, government, and citizens will be taught about leadership and new strategies to protect the people of the land from events in World War II. The Pearl Harbor attack has given the leaders of our country a new perspective allowing for new ideas to be used in war and new strategies to prepare the people for what may come. Experience equals knowledge. “To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.” (George Washington). No matter where or when, preparation is key.
Why is being on time in the military important? Being on time in the military is important because of several reasons. As a soldier I feel I am held to a higher standard. I am an example of my country and I want those around me to see the pride and honor I have for the career I have chosen. Not only am I an example of my country but I am an example to those who come after me and I need to set a high standard for them to keep our military superior to those who come against us.
As election time draws near, I can not help thinking more and more of my vision for America. Election time makes us think about our visions and our values, for our government, our nation, and maybe even ourselves, but our visions must always be in our minds. Without constant thought and hard work, visions cannot be fruitful. I envision the nation our founding fathers would have wanted to emerge from their efforts, a hopeful nation, blessed by God and enlivened by faith. America should protects every life, from conception to the grave.
