After eight years of presidency, Obama’s administration is finally coming to an end. The issue returns to who will succeed him - a democrat or a republican? Currently, the mid-primary elections are taking place to determine who the most suitable candidate is, with Bernie Sanders trailing Hillary Clinton to become the democratic nominee. Due to his emphasis on economic reform and narrowing the income gap in the United States, Sanders targets the working class through his goals of redistributing wealth. He also appeals to families by pushing for free nationwide college tuition, which would relieve some of the financial burden laid on parents and guardians.
Yes, the Revolutionary War did cause a big change for some people’s daily lives in America, and yes, the 13 colonies did separate from Great Britain and become an independent nation, but for many, the war had little or no effect on their lives and rights. This war was not a “complete” change; it was a change for a group of certain people and only them. Women, African Americans, and people who were poor were not changed drastically by this war. They still faced the same circumstances and treatment by their society as they did before this war. Although, the colonies formed a new nation, the war truly, was not revolutionary for all.
Individuals who migrate to America, all share one common goal: a better life. In most cases, many immigrants come to this country in hopes for a better life for themselves or even families, which is exactly what Jurgis aimed to accomplish. Situations like Jurgis’ and other many immigrants who come to this country for a better life or the “American Dream” will do anything possible to work hard enough to get to that point. This is vital to recognize and understand in the social work profession because many of these individuals will find themselves coming to this country with the same mindset, possibly unable to find legal jobs which will lead them to seek illegal jobs with low pay, gruesome conditions, and illegal acts if they are not made aware and pushed into the right path. For a social worker, being able to guide those who need the knowledge and oppurtunnites to achieve the goals they wish to accomplish to the right path is what makes the central issue of Capitalism important so no individual will ever find themselves enslaved to trying to provide for their family or themselves financially or living in a “Jungle” like society where individuals will compete for a chance to work, regardless of the pay in order to achieve the “American
What does it mean to be an American: The land of the free and the home of the brave? Due to the diversity that America offers, the people regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, cultures, backgrounds and sexual orientation have an equal opportunity for a better life in America. In Anna Quindlen’s “A Quilt of a Country,” she explains how people view America. She writes that being an American is an idea that works despite that fact that it should not due to the diversity that exist in the country. Quindlen informs the reader that America was uniquely constructed on no precise culture or race.
America has been built on the foundations of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but how have those words help to define what our country is as a whole? America could not have become what it is without the foundations created by our founding fathers. With the unalienable rights established by our founding fathers, we, as citizens, are blessed to live a prosperous life in which our future is determined by our actions. America is a country where a man can have a dream and accomplish it, become one with his fellow citizens, and discover new innovations daily. Being an American gives citizens the right the live the American dream, cultivate the world’s melting pot, and strive to innovate new ideas.
Those citizens have the mindset that the American Dream just is not possible in modern society. Is the American Dream Still Possible by David Wallechinsky addresses multiple view points from different Americans who don’t think the dream is accessible any longer. The excerpt states, “ But many average Americans are struggling- squeezed by rising costs, declining wages, credit-card debt and diminished benefits, with little left over to save for retirement” (55). Wallechinsky is correct in his statement that many Americans struggle. Most Americans come across problems that could potentially destroy their American Dream but the ones who succeed are the ones who don’t lose hope.
The American Dream is a dream that all mankind has. A lot of the common people place confidence in the fact that poverty is one of the biggest factors holding people back from that dream. People who agree that poverty is detrimental and will not let people achieve the American Dream find ways to help them be able to experience it. Some people might assume that poverty actually helps them achieve the American Dream. Each year the poverty rates are increasing tremendously and will keep increasing if no one takes action.

Governmental growth during this period, assisted in problems facing the nation, however brought about question in reference to American people and their freedoms.

During his time in college, Sanders was an active member of the Congress of Racial Equality as well as being involved in the historic March on Washington in 1963. He told the Burlington Free Press, “That was clearly a major American injustice and something that had to be dealt with” (5 Things You Should Know About Bernie Sanders). Even then, as a twenty-two year old college student, Sanders was already finding ways to make equality happen. After graduating, Sanders told Guardian newspaper, “I saw unfairness.
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” By Emma Lazarus (1883). No undocumented person should be treated as a criminal. Undocumented immigrants arise in the United States due to the lack of opportunities in their homeland, and they know America is a nation where a dream can become real. Those individuals willingly perform jobs that nearly all Americans refuse to do; they are reliable people, pay taxes, and help America’s economy. Yet, should undocumented immigrants be granted a path to citizenship?
My name is Kane Zimper and I am running for President. Our Party name is the Trustworths, because you can trust us with anything. We picked the eagle for our symbol because it symbolizes America.
