Benjamin Franklin and Patrick Henry were two important people in American History who made a difference. Franklin’s “Speech in the Convention and Henry’s “Speech in the Virginia Convention” helped guide our nation to independence and democracy. Both speeches have good examples of rhetorical devices, but I think Patrick Henry speech ‘Speech in the Virginia Convention” has better rhetorical devices. Some examples are rhetorical question, logos, diction, and imagery. Patrick Henry style and content is more effective then Benjamin Franklin because Patrick uses a plethora of things such as imagery, “There is no retreat but in submission and slavery!
The United States would gain more voters for the presidential election, keep their military as is, and relief overpopulation in the states. Puerto Ricans are citizens of the United States, which means they could move to the mainland to gain a healthier lifestyle, making them a state would be beneficial for the most part. Puerto Rico being the poorest state should not be a problem, they’d benefit economically and recuperate if granted
This is important because it keeps the nation’s rules simple, orderly, and understandable for the average citizen. Furthermore the Mayflower Compact stated that laws should be made for the general good. In emerging governments this tends to get glossed over. Opting instead to enact laws that will boost their GDP over their country’s general happiness. A happy nation, however, is easier to run, as the natural tendency will be to trust the government, rather than fear or despise it.
It is having a sense of purposefulness rather than hopelessness. This theme is seen in The Glass Castle, as well as in the article “Rethinking the American Dream” by Davis Kamp, which supports these ideas. In his essay Kamp talks about how Moss Hart was able to believe in his version of the American Dream the same way the Walls children did. Hart aspired to be more than what those around his would expect, and through his belief in his dream he was able to achieve his dream. In his article Kamp also mentions that fact that some people think that the AMerican Dream is dying, but reveas that this is only because society was becoming hopeless.
It could be argued however that this complements the social workers value that “the promotion of empowerment must be upheld” (BASW 2012), by convincing people to help themselves they are left empowered and self-reliant rather than relying on others. It is more likely however that this is one of those aforementioned new spheres of values that conflict with the traditional social work values, and is the domain of political ideologies that have aimed to reshape the humanist social work models (Bernard 2008), thus the value of money (funding) is placed above the fundamental value of the acts flagship concept of “wellbeing”. In fact the government regards this of such importance that they have added a whole section to the
By making naturalization an easier process with less red tape obstructing its pathway, several moral issues and unconstitutional policies can be avoided. Currently, President Obama is very progressive in his immigration policies and has passed some legislation successfully, such as his criminal-only deportation policies which have effectively reduced deportation rates. If not for resistance met in Congress by those who have taken a misinformed stance against immigration, many more laws could have been passed. Jeff Guo of the Washington Post recently released an article appropriately titled, “The Biggest Ideas Underpinning the Anti-Immigration Movement Aren’t Backed Up by Data,” and as his article suggests, much of the stigma that comes with the word “immigration” is at best urban legend, and at worst, vestiges of racist ideas. As the frustration towards immigration mounts, so do the severe, bordering-unconstitutional
Perhaps the best way to do this would be to solely base bails off of risk assessments. By using the basis of risk for bails, then the system improves as it no longer disproportionately discriminates against people from low income backgrounds. Moreover this approach is within the limits of the Constitution as the basis of dangerous is not per se unconstitutional according to the precedents set forth by United States v. Salerno ("Bail"). Ultimately, as shown the modern American bail system fails to protect the constitutional rights of the accused. By setting overly high bail amounts, judges often discriminate against people who are of lesser financial status since they do not have the ability to pay.
It shows the American citizens that immigrants can bring in more positive into the country than negative. The AIC also promotes a more humane immigration policy to be considered throughout the immigration process. The institute advocates for the human rights and constitutional laws to be enforced for the existing immigration laws. The AIC works towards offering fairness and justice for immigrants of the USA. This AIC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that accepts charities from those who are willing to change the immigration process for the better.
My belief is that illegal immigration should not be as frowned upon as it is in our current society. I believe this because immigration benefits our country in many ways. I believe The United States should allow immigrants from all around into our country because they are a positive influence on our
America- the Land of the Free- gives us the chance to be free… something that other countries simply do not. The American Dream is the idea that each law-abiding citizen deserves equal opportunity in seeking success through perseverance and dedication. Initially, this "Dream" was only extended to white property owners, but today it applies to all Americans. Unlike other countries, your financial status at birth does not directly affect your social status as an adult. Some say that the old American Dream has died, but the idea of starting something from nothing is truly inspiring.
