Generally speaking, the speech does follow Aristotle's method of persuasion, and it's well structured. However, Sanders speech wasn't effective, necessarily the speech itself was convincing he definitely has what it takes to get people to vote for him. The Mortensen Riverfront Plaza speech is one of his strongest, but I don't believe it has what it takes to help him win connecticut. So, from my perspective as the audience not it didn't move me entirely making it not effective. I do agree with the vast majority of the issues he talked about, and find him to be trustworthy.
The Persuasive Patrick Henry And The Colonists Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” speech is one of the most remembered speeches in US history. The colonists followed Patrick Henry because of his motive and drive to do what was right for his country and persuaded them pretty good using Logos, Ethos and Pathos. Patrick Henry persuaded the colonists using Ethos and Logos the most by using Logic and Ethics to get the colonists on his side. Henry’s leadership not only persuaded the colonists but also helped them see something to fight for and risk their lives to make this country free and independent. From the start, it was important to get as many colonists on his side and recruit more and more.
On March 23, 1775, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” was heard all throughout St. John 's Church. These famous words were not only from a great speaker looking to have his voice heard, but the words truly had an everlasting impact on freedom’s history. In the speech, “Give me Liberty or Give me Death” by Patrick Henry, he used figurative languages such as allusions, parallelism, and biblical references to bring his speech to life. These examples are just a few ways that Henry used literary devices, to create emotion and realism. In this specific piece of literature, qualities like patriotism and individualism are exceedingly prominent, this all being due to Henry’s use of literary devices.
King gives plenty of historical references and back-ups throughout his cogent writing. When he asks the clergymen “why direct action?”, he responds by claiming that nonviolent direct action fosters tension that a community has been negligent to resolve. He also relates his call to direct action mentioning his personal ideals of how nonviolence tension is alright because it nurtures growth. Then Dr. King follows his personal relation with Socrates (para. 10) Dr. King possesses a unique argumentative style because he is intuitive.

Rhetoric is a universal staple to effective communication, yet it is defined differently to various sources. Quintilian defined it as a method for good men to transmit good messages, while Aristotle coined it as the aptitude to “discover, in any given case, the available means of persuasion” (Beebe & Beebe, 2006). For instructors, it is used in student-centric “perceived caring” to establish a teacher’s character, assisting his or her messages in effectively impacting students (Tevan & McCroskey, 2009). Together, these fragmented ideas combine to form rhetoric, and those who can employ them are, in turn, effective rhetoricians. In popular culture today, these fragments form many fictional personalities: commercial characters, literary protagonists,
Paine’s purpose of using imagery is to make his words and ideas easier for the continental army to go and fight for their freedom. Imagery is similar and supports the inclusion of repetition. Thomas Paine uses imagery to make things easier to understand just like if he were to repeat something many times to make it more clear. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” He is describing how much tyranny is like hell and how hell is not easily conquered. He gives the appeal that we must not be afraid and in the end we will have great triumph.
Use of Rhetorical Appeals in “Duty,Honor, Country” The effectiveness of rhetorical devices is no better illustrated than in the essay “Duty, Honor, Country” by General Douglas MacArthur. Throughout this piece the tone and opinion is made clear without being heavy handed making the piece infinitely more relatable.

Establishing one's own credibility is a challenge often faced by both speakers and writers. How do you get an Audience to trust you?

Because of this, McClellan was almost always ready to move but not quite. He was afraid to risk failure so he never would risk doing anything. On the other hand, the Confederates leaders had General Robert E. Lee, who commanded the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. He was considered a big risk taker. McClellan was not too worried about Lee or his army thinking that Lee was weak and too cautious but Lee was anything but that.
