I feel that in any other state, applying the new voter ID law would not have as big an impact as it would in Texas. Since Texas has such a huge population of immigrants trying to get their citizenship it limits many people that make up the majority of the population. According to the Texas voter data for the 2014 November election, out of 14,025,441 registered voters only 4,727,208 were recorded in the turnout amount. So, based off of this information I can assume that applying this law to Texas could significantly affect the voter turnout negatively. Being that Texas has such a low voter turnout rate, I feel that the voter ID law should not be applied mainly because of the issues with the ethnicity background of our population.
This makes it difficult for candidates to reach out to this demographic to get them to come out to vote. The link between the different ethnic groups plays a role in the voting turnout as well. The Hispanic and African American communities tend to vote at lower rates than the Anglo (white, English speaking) Texans. With the 2008 election of President Barack Obama, the first black president, the vote within the African American community rose greatly and was about equal to the Anglo vote. Many politicians blame the 2011 Texas Voter ID Law as the cause for many of the issues with voter turnout.
There are other and more unique reasons in Hawaii that cause a much higher growth rate of homeless people compared to the steady number in most states. These causes include, rising costs in daily goods, low wages, and limited land (Bussewitz). Also, it is not easy for a homeless person to move to another state since Hawaii is an island. The minimum wage in Hawaii is $8.50. This means that an individual would have to work 140 hours a week in order to just afford a two-bedroom apartment in Honolulu.
There’s being a debate mainly informed by the fact that there is a agreement that the governor of Texas has less potential compared to the others governors from other states. And the debate is wether the governor of Texas needs more power or not. There is some people who think that the governor needs more power in order to be equal with the other states. Theres has been some people who believe that the governor should stay the way it is because they say that the Governor’s office in Texas is is considered to be extremely weak specially if they compared it with the other states. For example, governor of Texas should have a charismatic ability, the power of media, personality and some persuasion in order to work the government of Texas.
I, Jacob Patterson, am choosing to run my gubernatorial campaign on the platform of restricting the amount of foreign legal immigration into the state of Texas. Why restrict the amount of immigration into the Lone Star state? Well if you ask me there are actually three main reasons, those are: jobs, security, and defending america 's culture. Countless legal loopholes currently reside in our country 's legal immigration laws and many states simply don’t abide by the statutes currently implemented in the Immigration Act of 1990. As Texans it 's our duty to protect and secure our border as a part of national security.
Thesis: From my understanding, during the process of the economy’s expansion; the reason for this, are due to, immigration and better opportunities. Immigrants, from Southern and Eastern Europe outnumbered cities, by over one to three million people. There were, of course, other reasons for this expansion; The laissez-faire was the reason for this as well. They were the policy that wouldn’t deal with free trade, free enterprise, as well as, marketing. Although, many people thought it only protect only the weak competitors from better ones.
The majority of students who have older family members didn’t have to experience the struggle that students have to face when it comes to tuition prices today. Just five years ago tuition prices were much more affordable than they are now, some prices have gone up 21%. In other countries prices for a higher education are much more reasonable and in some cases even free. College tuition prices need to go back to the way they once were or else colleges everywhere and even the economy could suffer in the future.
My home state is Texas, and a problem Texas faces is an overall mindset of systemic racism, sexism, and xenophobia. Texas is a very conservative state, thus many of the policies passed by our legislation are written at the expense of women and minorities. Although I might sound highly critical of our state government, I do not believe that these negative mindsets are deliberate attempts to put others down, I feel that it is simply an ignorance to the issues women and minorities face, and a lack of empathy. Ignorance is easily countered by thorough education. The easiest way to solve this is for us constituents of these politicians, to bring the issues that affect us to the forefront.
The Great Migration is one of the most useful trips the blacks have made. The Great Migration was a lot of colored people making a trip to the north to find a better environment to live in other than the south because they did not like it at all. They’re life there was a lot better than as it was in the south. It wasn’t as segregated as the south, they had a lot better life there in the south. They had much more freedom before in the south but in the north they colored could vote.
Texas Political Culture There are multiple classifications for political cultures Moralistic political culture- ones believe that the government should promote the public good and in order to ensure that good the citizens should participate in politics and civic activities Individualistic political culture- ones believe that the government must limit their role when providing to society in order to make the citizens able to pursue their economic interests Traditionalistic political culture- ones believe that the government should controlled by political elites and must be guided by tradition. Changes in Texas The One Party State- Texas had been governed by the Democratic party for over 100 years. But the pattern was broken when a competition
“Gerald Gaes gives a specific numerical example involving Oklahoma, a high-privatization state, where a difference in overhead accounting can alter the estimate of the cost of privatization by 7.4% (Volokh, 2014).” Private prisons were most commonly smaller than the federal or state prisons so they can’t hold up to the same amount of prisons. There being, there has to be a lot more of them. “The first private contract to house adult offenders was in 1984, for a small, 250-bed facility operated by CCA under contract with Hamilton County, Tennessee (Seiter, 2005, pp. 162-165).” As of 2008 there was 126,249 state and federal prisoners held in a private prison, accounting for 7.8 percent of prisoners in general. So the private prisons quickly stepped up and made the prisons bigger to account for more prisoners.
•P 5: He isn 't happy with people who serve their lives to working for the state. •P 8- He doesn 't find the government to respect people and its people responsibility to challenge the state. •P 9 : Regarding to Paley a social philosopher who argued all civil duties gain from expediency. •P 10: Speaking of effectiveness on voting and lack of action in society, slavery and Mexican war. •P 11: Thoreau explains that the majority wont abolish slavery until it is appropriate.
In the Modern Era There were three main ideological tendencies which were economic liberalism, social conservatism, and overlaid with populism. Have found their expression in a dominant political culture that tends to favor low taxes, low government services, and pro-business policies. These three ideological tendencies should be looked as the foundation of Texas’s political culture. For most of the modern Texas political history- low taxes and low services approach to government. People that want to raise taxes has always been politically dangerous to candidates and public office holders in Texas.
Drugs alone bring in about $40 million dollars into the Mexican economy (Que Seria De Mexico). Without this amount of money due to drugs, the Mexican economy would most likely suffer or struggle without the substantial income. This revenue due to drugs is significant in comparison to other economic revenues. The Mexican revenue in 2009 for remittance was $21.181 million, tourism was $11.275 million, oil was $30.882 million, and foreign investment was $23.179 million (Que Seria De Mexico). The revenue is outstanding in comparison to the other sources of income for the country.
Mexican Leadership Within the past decade there has been an increase in Latino representation that has jumped started the advocacy of Latino related issues all across the nation. Prior to this influx of representation, Latino politics was extremely limited to only local government. In today’s society, Latino politics is a main issue on both the Republican and Democratic platform. Even though this has been a tremendous milestone to reach, Latinos continue to be underrepresented in all forms of government. According to Juan Gonzalez, in 2009 Latinos “represented slightly more than 1 percent of all elected officials in the country at the time when Latinos were 15 percent of the population.” Latino issues may be raised right now, but their needs
