The French and Indian War was important to the American Revolution because the debt from the war was the reason that Parliament started taxing the colonists. Also, the French and Indian War made Britain very weak, making the colonists’ actions work a whole lot better. Since France was not happy with the outcome of their war with Britain this was a main reasons for France’s interest in helping the now Americans throughout the Revolutionary War, which was very important to the colonies’ victory. The reason why Britain started to tax the colonists was because of the debt resulting from the French and Indian War. The first tax was the the tax on sugar, which was put on the colonists to help pay off the war debt.
A free college education in universities and community colleges will leave graduates debt free and fuel the economy. There are many people with more intelligent minds than students in Harvard, but students of Harvard have rich parents who can get them the best possible education. People would rather not go to college than face student loans their entire life. Making a college education free will not make a degree less valuable because the value of something does not just come from how much money it costs. If someone has a degree, regardless of how much they pay for it, it has the value of education itself.
Many Puerto Ricans have always dreamed of seeing their beautiful commonwealth become its own country. American laws today are imposed on the territory, but by leaving Puerto Rico to make its own choices, the citizens could design their government whichever way they would like. This choice has the support of many current Americans, from former inhabitants of Puerto Rico wishing for independence to politicians not wanting to support the island in times of need. On the contrary, Puerto Rico has been the colony of a nation for hundreds of years. They have not had independence since before Spain took over the island in the 1500s, and because of that, it could be disastrous to simply cut all ties with the nation.
Additionally, if they sent the troops for good reasons and had good intentions for the colonies, the colonies would not be scared to declare their independence. A reason they may have worried about preserving the loyalty of the colonists is because when one nation or government has more people loyal to them, there are more taxes being issued and more money for the kingdom. This quote applies to the peoples logical sense because the colonists went to the new land searching for freedom and they see it wrong for the British to be
People may ask why the americans desired independence, but that was not originally what they wanted. Nowt that time has past and the United States Of America are now an independent nation, I believe that declaring independence was a great idea because of the successful things it has helped create. The Americas was a great opportunity for many British who wanted to start a new life in the Americas. Except it was soon found to be a terrible idea after the amount of taxes they made them pay for necessary things apart of their culture. In the evidence it states, “After months of protest in the colonies, Parliament finally voted to repeal the Stamp Act in March 1766.
The American Dream is so essential to our country as it is an honor to reach your goals and make it a reality. The American Dream is the national ethos that people’s lives would be better and more abundant with many opportunities. The American Dream was more accessible to attain back in the days, however, changed over the years. Although the “American Dream” is still possible, many people, minorities are affected by the lack of improvement in social mobility in our society. The American Dream is still alive by being able to live a middle-class lifestyle and by obtaining it through perseverance and hard-work.
One man who worked vigorously to acquire his dream was Martin Luther King Jr. His dream was for equality to every citizen and with all of his hard work, it paid off (Meacham). The beliefs of the American Dream vary from group to group; person to person (Rodriguez). For instance, whites are less likely to believe in the American Dream than non-whites. New people coming into the country see their life here as the American Dream. However for the people who have been here longer, think of the dream more related to wealth than the traditional values (Rosenfeild).
The founding fathers, then took necessary actions to gain freedom from this bond with Great Britain. The Founding Fathers were justified in the rebellion because; King George was unfair and took advantage of the new world, as well as the colonists. The founding Fathers created their new government because Britain was not protecting them; they taxed them greatly, and the
Summary: The purpose of “Civil Disobedience” was to open people’s eyes to the injustices committed by the government and to cause them to do something about it. Thoreau talks about how the American government is by definition unjust due to its support of slavery and the Mexican War and how change is needed very soon. He warned to “not at once [have] no government, but at once a better government.” in order to make it clear that he was not calling for a revolution, but a reform of the government. In the very beginning, Thoreau says that he believes “That government is best which governs least.” because the American government has made it so that the majority has all the power, even if they use their power to commit injustices. Thoreau wanted
Do people discriminate others to hurt them or they do not realize what their actions are doing? Racial discrimination is when a person is treated less favorably than another person in a similar situation because of their race, colour, descent, national or ethnic origin or immigrant status. One of the biggest discrimination in this country is racial discrimination towards Latinos and people of color. Racial discrimination has become a part of everyday life in America. We have to stop this hatred in our country because this country is based on freedom, peace, and home of immigrants.
As tensions in Great Britain grew economically and politically, the American colony declared themselves an independent nation. Gaining their independence was significant, however, keeping it would be the challenge. The Americans knew a stable federal republic was essential to remaining independent, thus they created the Constitution. Although, the creation of the Constitution and the equality it ensues a controversial issue, the Constitution did not fulfil the job it was designed to do. The document did not establish a fair government.
There has been much debate over the idea of the American colonies separating and becoming independent from Great Britain. The colonies as a whole agree with the idea that it would be much more advantageous to become our own independent country and be able to freely make decisions for the colonies welfare. That is why it has come to my better judgment to agree with the colonies decision to become independent from the British. I believe in this decision because it is very important for a county’s people to have protection. Protection is something the American colonies do not have at the moment and I do not see Great Britain providing this protection for them.
Some of my tactics will help America to do just that. Let us keep positive as American’s that our nationalism being spread for bigger and better things in these countries. The mission of the united states is one benevolent assimilation. We also have to help these countries because a free man can not be long an ignorant man as
They have been loyal for 117 years. They have asked to make it to become a state and it has good reason. They want to join the government and become apart of the legal system. Although it has a lot of debt it can bring a lot of money into the states that can be put to good use. Puerto Rico can be trusted to uphold the morals of the US government because they have as a territory.
People of color who grow up in America believe that their race/culture is not important because they are ashamed of there culture. People of color try to hide who they really are to fit into other races.This relates to me, because I am arabic and not a lot of people like arabs because they think i am a terrorist and i am going to bomb them. Growing up in America as a boy of another race I sometimes feel I like i want to change my race and i feel ashamed that feel that way about my race/culture. The authors of “fish cheeks” “crabs” and “how to date” argue that growing up as a person of color in America is tough because they are embarrassed of their race , struggle with poverty, and embrace other races instead of their own. The authors of “fish cheeks” “crabs” and “how to date” argue that growing up as a person of color in America is tough because they are embarrassed of their race.
