Throughout history, countries are inevitably pulled into conflicts that result in war. These conflicts usually occur because of interests in: economic gain, territorial gain, religion, and nationalism. America, like every country, needs a military to defend itself, especially when tensions arise in other parts of the world and when militia numbers start to decrease. This then allows the government to draft its population to serve in the military. People argue that young men and women’s bright lives are often cut short, and not allowed their Constitutional right to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”, but there are many benefits for the nation and the individual by serving one’s country.
Even so, money is being spent effortlessly on the war, instead of helping the lower class which it was a promise the government didn’t keep.

Of course, it is possible to disagree with the view that deportation keeps undocumented immigrants living in fear and instead argue that if immigrants are deported America would be letting too many immigrants in and then we'll lose a lot of our belongings then all immigrants are going to want to work and also take our jobs away from us. However the weight of the evidence is on the other side.

This is fundamentally why Undocumented immigrants people will be living in fear if they are being

But how to blame our future warriors? Nowadays, TV commercials are filled with military propaganda with catchy phrases such as “Accelerate Your Life” and “A Global Force for Good.” Who can say no to that? But before seeing a recruiter, consider the following: Imagine getting a new job as a teacher at a local high school.

Franklin regarded the importance of expanding westward necessary for the American colonists; more land was needed for the colonists to keep growing, but the French were in their way.
