First, it must be understood exactly why Conservatives should care about what the Left thinks. The Left has constantly been trying to portray conservatism as bigoted and racist. Not saying that Trump is bigoted and racist, but Trump gives the Left a concrete example to use against conservatives. A majority of Trump’s supports are not racists, but there is a small sub-sect of his followers that are very “loud” and are, indeed, white nationalists. Given that the Left can look at Trump and say to independents or other potential future conservatives, “Do you really want to vote for, join a party, or subscribe to an ideology that really is racist and bigoted, as proven by Donald Trump’s presidency/candidacy?” No!
In other words, Republicans are claiming that fraudulent voting is an issue in the electoral process and having to provide further identification such as a photo ID is a solution. “Democrats say the changes have little to do with fraud prevention and more to do with placing obstacles in the way of possible Democratic voters, including young people and minorities” (Lizette A1). In other words, Democrats do not see this is a real issue because there is “scant evidence of voter-impersonation fraud” (Lizette A1) and say that Republicans are just using this as a better sounding defense in order to accomplish more voter discrimination towards particular groups of
Preclearance was a constitutional response to voter discrimination, but it was also unconstitutional to apply it to states based on past issues (Sensenbrenner, 2016). Thus, the law’s strongest protections have been rendered meaningless. Clearly they never heard of Tocqueville’s tyranny of the majority. The tyranny of the majority is when a dominant group uses its control of the government to abuse the rights of minority groups (Magstadt, p.78, 2015). Executing laws that place restrictions on minorities sounds all too familiar.
Question two As the chairman for the Republican National Convention and knowing that Buckley V Valeo decision will not be soon changed, I would argue against changing the current campaign system in the most spectacular way. I would get on air and frame as the case as the liberal media trying to suppress free speech. I would attack the media on its double standards and vendetta against businesses. The press demands to know the inner working of institutions, yet it hardly respects other people’s right to assemble nor does it promote candidates that reflect the views of people whom want to make America great. The first amendment guarantees the right to assemble even in secret.
Secondly, I find Trump to use the flag to distract his supporters from the fact that his administration, which most Republicans campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare, could not carry out their main “promise” to the US. In regards to the football players’ kneelings, I would agree as to why they would not consider the flag as reverent as “patriotic” citizens would. Since the flag is a reminder of a black and white history, black NFL players are more inclined to protest against what they see as unjust. Whites did not really have a big problem against the flag, but blacks have a history that separates them from what the flag represents. My only question is “why now?”.
They have firm believes in Obama’s failure in presidency, minimizing the government and taxes, and conservative ideas, as shown with gay marriage and immigration. Although the Republican Party does, in fact, believe in more traditional ideas, as such, they are not as radical as they are represented by the Tea Party. The American population as a whole is seeing a misrepresented idea of what the republican party is, does, and
Lyndon B. Johnson wanted votes, he needed votes if he wanted to become president. To keep all of the southern votes he provided a watered down pro-discrimination bill. He was for discrimination as a Texas senator, he needed votes if he ever wanted to achieve that dream. He saw a perfect way to get those votes from the south, give them exactly what they want; even if it is against what he thinks is right. LBJ was
I am a right wing Libertarian which is the Democratic Party. The democratic party was made back in 1792 to combat Republicans who supported Thomas Jefferson. At that time the Democratic party often referred to its own party as “The White man 's Party” because the Republicans at the time mostly lived in the South and favored slavery unlike Democrats. I Believe as one person that we should have same sex marriage legalized. Saying two people can 't be married based off it being wrong and preachers unwilling to want to wed them based on their religion is ridiculous.
Moral foundation theory is composed of six systems for which only three of those are attributed to republicans. Those are loyalty, which means conservatives always alert for betrayal, making their authority very well known, and maintaining sanctity to prevent degradation. In the case of conservatives sanctity comes in the shape of a place that can be similarly related to liberty, freedom and something that requires endless dedication. On the other hand democrats are associated with being fair by staying away from cheating and by saving society from harm. By attributing these values to each group, there is a clear explanation of why there can be such different perspectives on politics for both conservatives and liberal groups.
Many Southerners felt that state governments alone had the right to make important decisions, such as whether slavery should be legal. Advocates of states’ rights believed that the individual state governments had power over the federal government because the states had ratified the Constitution to create the federal government in the first place. Most Southern states eventually seceded from the Union because they felt that secession was the only way to protect their rights. But Abraham Lincoln and many Northerners held that the Union could not be dissolved. The Union victory solidified the federal government’s power over the states and ended the debate over states’
