The only thing you should do is to serve to your country up to two years and protect its citizens. Imagine a country, which has no mandatory military service, which is not able to defend itself. Can we actually call it a state? Historically, if a young man did not serve in the army, he was not considered a real man, and moreover it was considered as a disgrace. We should be aware that modern world is not full of excessive love and harmony in all countries, so heads of governments pay much attention to the issues of the
Should the voting age be lowered to thirteen? I think that the voting age should stay at eighteen. The reasons I think this is because, younger kids are immature, they don’t pay taxes, and they don’t know how government really works. One of the reasons I think the voting age should not be lowered is because younger kids or teenagers are immature. Some claims you can state that may conclude they are immature are because they would vote for fun and not take the voting seriously.
There is just under a year until the presidential election, yet candidates are well into their campaigns, sinking large chunks of money into advertising and traveling state to state. Banning hateful TV ads would also make sense because they are often funded by Super PACs as I have already mentioned. It seems that most other counties only have limits on spending, because there is no point of limiting how much a candidate can get if he or she is only allowed to spend a certain amount of
Children are not permitted the same rights and responsibilities an adult has. A child doesn’t have the same standards as an adult has. A good example is children don’t get to join the military as an adult could they must be 18 years and older to join the military. Teenagers don’t make the same decisions as an adult would. “With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults.”(Berger) The reason why is because their brains are still changing they are still going throw a change they are still growing.
They actually stated this “Gerald Jackson, the founder of a nonprofit group called Learning for Everyone, has also made the point that not all students need to prepare for college”. I strongly disagree with that statement because there is very smart people who don’t need to prepare for college but college isn’t like high school, college is a very different level of education it’s gonna be a lot harder than high school work. So basically anybody going to college should study for it cause you know what to go to college thinking you know everything and then fail. The people that aren’t going to college and plan on going straight into the workforce will be hard, because they are going in blind without going to college to have a set job title. Both of the arguments were good ones they both stated facts on what they were arguing about i just thought argument B was the better argument.
One cannot put the stress of having to choose a president who will lead the country for the next four years on a 16 year old who is having a mental breakdown because there crush wont text them back. Lowering the voting age would only decrease the voting percentage in the in the young voters. We should be more focused on how to make voting easier and more flexible for everybody, like the passage said we need to make voting mobile ,secure but also easier ways on how people can vote from there comfort at home. Even thinking of lowering the voting age is just asking for less votes or even worst votes from teenagers who are still dependent from their parents ,and there opinions .America will continue to grow and have new presidents wwe just need to make the right decisions and keep the voting age at
It isn’t actually that frequent, about once a modern lifetime, but seems to have gotten more frequent the closer we get to now. In the last twenty years, we have had two times when the system has given a winner that wasn’t supported by the majority of voters, yet we didn’t have any in all of the 20th century. This could mean that it is getting more and more likely that the electoral college will have someone that the majority of voters didn’t vote for. All of this contributes to the idea that one vote is worthless, which is why the electoral college is antithetical to a democracy. Congressmen aren’t elected through a slate of people voted by citizens to vote for citizens, so why is the president?
Introduction Thesis: David Wallechinsky, a journalist for PARADE, believes that North Korea is not a threat to the U.S. Too Poor soldiers are weak/ underfed ramshackle neighborhoods behind nice ones Keeps are 15+ years old 15 year old unfinished hotel Why is it important? They don 't have enough money to take care of their country as it is, let alone fund a war. Too Oppressed/ Isolated When visiting the couldn 't walk or talk Leader’s pictures everywhere Government controls everything No technology Why? Too undeveloped to harm us. Weak Military Soldiers malnourished Lacks power to attack Defensive not offensive Disabled nuke facilities Disclosed weapon capabilities It seems like everyday we hear news about the growing threat of North Korea.
Many people who are against the legal drinking age being 21 years old believe if people can fight for your country they should be allowed to have a drink. They believe this because at 18 years old people are adults at that point. At 18 years old people can vote, smoke, and marry but they cant not drink. Others think they are wrong because at age 18 most kids are still in high school. Not everybody is full matured by 18 years old.
Fine, says Democratic state Rep. Ron Wilson of Houston. Lower the voting age to fourteen.” This statement is a perfect example of what unfairness is. Why should juvenile’s suffer consequences like an adult, if they can’t even live or act like one in their daily lives? Or in this case, can’t even vote. I believe that the authorities do not care about what happens to a child when they receive an unreasonable
While there are a vast number of proponents, the same thing cannot be said for opponents. The first group of people to oppose AB 12 would be the assembly members that voted against the formation of this law back in 2010. Assembly members against the bill believed that there were not sufficient government funds to put towards it. The second group to oppose Assembly Bill 12 are taxpayers. They believe that programs like Adoption Assistance, Transitional Housing Programs, and Kinship Guardian Assistance have been of enough help for foster youth.
If you have lived in Texas you would have to vote for a slate of 34 Democratic electors. Anyone can be elected as the electors that are going to be voting for you. Voters can sometimes get confused about who to vote for and vote for the wrong candidate. Electoral college is unfair to voters. Because of the winner take all system candidates don 't spend time in states they don 't have a chance of winning, focusing only on the tight races in the “swing” states.
Abidjan Bright Badih Elarba Texas Politics 1133.010 Fall 2015 Voter ID law in Texas It was in 2011 that the Legislature passed Bill 14 that allowed Texas to have a strict voter ID law for the November election. Many people were opposed to this because it limited many eligible citizens from voting causing a lower voter turnout than what Texas has already had. This is a major problem in Texas because majority of our population consists of immigrants from Mexico and many of them are still fighting for citizenship. Because of this law it is in question, how much power does our state actually have in the regulation of elections? Limits on voter qualifications are stated in the US constitution and within federal laws as well.
Since the younger generation of America is the one that most needs to be educated in civics, this could be threatening because they can 't run a country while simultaneously knowing nothing about it. Furthermore, most Americans in general care more about their personal lives than what 's happening in their country. The article claims, "we stopped engaging with one another as a civilized society".
For instant, if I was a Republican this would be a great opportunity to lead in an election. Since most of the people voting Democrat, will possibly be turned away because they were unable to provide the required documentation by law. However, if I was Democrat, this could be considered a hindrance for my supports to vote. I really don’t see the equality of how an individual can be allowed to vote by absentee vote if they are not on active military duty. For instance, college students, who are permitted to vote absentee.
