Have you noticed when electing a president even if they get eight years, they spend two of those years running for re-election rather than running the country? Yeah, me too. So, starting after I step down as your beloved Dictator, all presidential terms are for six years, and only six years. You get six whole years to guide the country and then you step down, like I did, gracefully and with dignity, as befits your office. But we 're not stopping there folks!
This was a big add on to his resume for becoming the president. Here he also showed his leadership skills and grew his favoritism over the people. Then as it got closer to the next election he didn’t run but he helped campaign for William McKinley. William ended up winning the election but did not finish up his term as he was shot and died eight days prior. So, with that Theodore Roosevelt, the Vice President at the time was sworn in and took the role as President of the United States.
In the last chapter, Butler provides various ideals in effort to rid the Chokehold in its entirety. In chapter 8, “Woke: Unlocking the Chokehold” Butler opens the chapter by informing the reader that racial inequality is something that has been around for some time. As far back as I can remember African-Americans, specifically mean have never been treated the same as any other race. There have been attempts to end discrimination, however, none of these attempts warranted any long-term solutions. One instance that Butler believes should have been a major turning point was Barack Obama being elected President.
Most leaders in the past would only have people of the same view in office. Doing what Abraham did shows his strength as a president. Anyone who's been through at least primary school will remember learning about how the United States used to support slavery. This was actually the reason the civil war even happened. Abraham tried to get rid of slavery so the north and south broke apart over that dispute.

Lyndon B Johnson's Great Society Speech Lyndon B. Johnson is mostly known for being the president of the United States, but that is not all he was. He became Vice President of the United States in 1960. After John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Johnson became President of the United States (Lyndon B). May 22, 1964, Johnson spoke passionately and empathetically at a political event in Ann Arbor Michigan to President Hatcher, Governor Romney, Senators McNamara and Hart, Congressmen Meader and Staebler, and members of the Michigan delegation about building a Great Society to help eliminate hard times for the poor (Johnson). Johnson conveys his message about building a Great Society by using pathos, ethos, and logos, by using personal information to appeal to our emotions, and by using plausible statistics.
Introduction While responding to a controversy that endangered his presidential campaign, Barack Obama delivered a speech many consider to be one of the greatest ever given on the topic of race. The speech, titled A More Perfect Union, was delivered during the democratic national convention on March 18, 2008, in Philadelphia. The response was relatively positive. In the speech, Obama illustrates his involvement in and passion towards the racial makeup of America, however the reason for this speech is not shown until he mentions his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. In the weeks prior to the speech, Wright, an outspoken pastor, accused the government of committing hateful acts against black Americans.
I disagree that the Constitution is an “agreement with Hell,” because although there may be some sections that aren't ideal, the American Constitution is remarkable because it has the ability to change and adapt to the times. William Lloyd Garrison, a famous abolitionist, proposed that all states that don't keep slaves should secede from the Union because he felt that the Constitution heavily supported slavery. His argument is now not valid because the Constitution has been amended, and now slavery is illegal. No one today could claim that the United States as a nation supports slavery. William Wells Brown, a former slave, also advocated for the nullification of the Constitution.
Slavery had been a central issue in the United States since the founding of the country when the Founding Fathers As the U.S. moved closer to war, it became more divided by its attitudes, interests, and general lifestyles. Although sectionalism, the loyalty to interests of a particular region over the country, can be traced to the earliest years of the new nation, it became more of an obstacle in the 19th century as Americans began to see themselves as either Southerners or Northerners. Although sectional discord was an important factor leading to the onset of war, at its core was the division and conflicts related to slavery. This is seen with a brief examination of the election of 1860. In this presidential race of 1860, Lincoln carried all of the North except New Jersey, and “without receiving a single vote in ten southern states, [he] was elected the nation’s sixteenth president.” The Republican Party’s platform not only opposed the expansion of slavery to the western
(266). The number of articles about the abolitions of slavery shows the change in the fight for abolition of slavery. Before the revolutionary war only a few articles were about the abolition of slavery. One of the most influential articles was from Thomas Paine, he writes “That some desperate wretches should be willing to steal and enslave men by violence and murder for gain, is rather lamentable than strange.” With this sentence Paine shows how he does not understand the need for slavery. Even though there was already being spoken about the abolition of slavery, there were only a few articles about it before, while after the war there is an increase in the number of articles, showing that there is an increase in the fight for abolition of slavery after the war.

During the following national election, 2000, Bush won the swing states by 72,949 votes. In the following presidential election, in 2004, Bush won again; his victory is similar to that of Clinton in 1996.
