During his Republican National Convention speech, he wanted delegates to continue the promise of the Roosevelt in his speech, “eliminate the unnecessary function of government.” Reagan’s comparison to Roosevelt fueled his desire to a leader like Roosevelt, exploiting the modern presidency and move the United States to “rendezvous with destiny.”

America’s founders rested upon unique principles found in God’s Word: individual freedom, limited government whose power derives from the people, equality of man, and guaranteed rights that would provide hope to a nation. Following a departure from fundamental values of America’s founding that believed traditional systems of government were outdated and needed to be replaced, Reagan held a key role in setting the United States back to its original purpose with an emphasis on the individual. In his presidency, people were not seen as communities or groups, but as individuals with a
Ronald Reagan: An Era of Steady Economic Growth In a time when there was a lack of jobs, rising inflation, and an energy crisis all affecting the country, there was no doubt that Jimmy Carter, the sitting president at the time, would clearly be challenged by his opponent, Ronald Reagan. Reagan, a former governor of California, was known as a great communicator from his days being a governor. Reagan, who was best known at that time for the time he spent as a Hollywood actor and governor, came from humble roots, born and raised in a small apartment without running water and indoor plumbing. Later on, Reagan attended Eureka College in Illinois.
In this essay, I will discuss the purpose of the War on Drugs. Note, that my knowledge and credibility will come from The New Jim Crow, written by Michelle Alexander. First, I will define exactly the reason why we created the War on Drugs. Next, we will look at the effects that War on Drugs created. Thirdly, we’ll discuss some of the excuses that law enforcement officers did and still do, to “crack down” drugs.
Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, pursued policies which evinced his personal belief, challenging the public and ultimately not assisting the development of civil rights for African American people in the USA. His exploitation of the racial tension in the US at the time demonstrated to be a political tool to gain more power and popularity with the white Americans in the 1980s. Reagan’s era encompasses his opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, signed into law by President Johnson. Additionally, it further consists of his lack of pursuit against affirmative action and statements which would not coincide with what he was trying to achieve.
The public has lost a very large amount of trust in the government. Causing what is becoming a very large problem within the world. Racial profiling.

Racial profiling is practice by law enforcements officers by targeting individuals for suspicion of crime based on their race, ethnicity, religion or nationality.

Racial profiling is a longstanding and deeply troubling national problem despite claims that the United States has entered a "post-racial era."
Have you ever been racially profiled ? Racial profiling is a very big national problem. Even though supposably the United States has entered a “post-racial era.” It happens every day in cities across the country. Law enforcement and private securities tend to target people of color mainly for embarrassing or scary reasons.
Racial profiling has been a long-standing issue in the United States in regards to law enforcement at the federal, state, and local levels. It has existed in America since the first introduction of African-Americans, for instance, when slave patrols stopped and questioned any African-American unaccompanied by a white person. It continues to be a prominent topic covered by the media today. The media often covers stories on minorities being racially profiled and targeted by law enforcement not on their behavior, but on their personal characteristics, which debunks any argument that the United States is in a “post-racial era.” “Whites and some people of color point to the virtual lack of overtly racialized law- for example, Jim Crow statutes-
As of recent, the war on drugs has been a very often discussed topic due to many controversial issues. Some people believe the War on Drugs has been quite successful due to the amount of drugs seized and the amount of drug kingpins arrested.

These minor changes in the way we combat drugs will create significant change and have lasting effects.
