An old policy, with a new look. The Truman Doctrine changed the path of the U.S. involvement in international affairs.

The conservatives strongly opposed government intervention because it meant that it would disrupt the free market and its economic growth and affect their personal economic
Washington’s intentions were to avoid a war, rather than creating any disruptions. His decisions proved to be the right ones, and he was able to get on Britain’s good side due to this treaty.

That is why it has come to my better judgment to agree with the colonies decision to become independent from the British.

Protection is something the American colonies do not have at the moment and I do not see Great Britain providing this protection for them.

Mandatory voting is a violation to our civil rights and will become a law in the United States. Although many people believe that mandatory voting helps to strengthen a democratic government by making more voters participate in political process. However, mandatory voting violates the democratic United States by restricting people’s rights.
Despite many Americans believing that the American Dream is no longer available as there are government restrictions that limit their potential for success in any fashion, others insist that the American government provides rights for the people of America to be able to constantly achieve what they believe to be the American Dream.
