Bush effectively executes his 9/11 speech and uses rhetorical devices to catch the citizens attention, calm the America people and unite them together again. Bush addresses the audience and the problem as a catchy first sentence. “Our…fellow citizens, our way of life…our very freedom…” Due to Bush repeating “Our” he utilizes the device of anaphora to hook the reader’s attention. The president starts to tell his audience that the terrorist attack might have threatened their freedom and way of life but will never successfully take it. Bush uses the
She says, "When the world threw problems at the White House, he was not baffled". This shows that even the entire world hurling issues at Reagan would not faze him. He would calmly examine them and find the right solution. Thatcher's use of allusions and personification brings more description of Reagan's great character into her speech. Thatcher dedicates her speech to Reagan and paints him as a great man and one to be remembered throughout all time in her eulogy.
This fear, he is hoping, will cause his people to want to take action and precautions against the evil at hand. Because he wants his people to be on his side when launching war on Japan, he appeals to pathos in the way he speaks by provoking feelings of anger and a hunger for revenge toward Japan. Other strategically stated phrases from Roosevelt, such as “deliberately sought to deceive” or “unprovoked and dastardly”, have a similar effect. Words that really stand out when this is said are deliberately, unprovoked, and dastardly. He really makes a point of how the Japanese went out of their way to attack America when in turn, Americans have been nothing but peaceful to Japan and its people prior to the attacks.
Therefore, President Kennedy claims that America is to uphold the very foundation of the nation not only within the country, but on a global scale. He does this by subtly comparing America to John Winthrop’s “City Upon a Hill” in the third paragraph of the piece and in the end where he states, “The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it - and the glow from that fire can truly light the world” (Kennedy 3). President Kennedy does this to show the citizens of America what they are capable of as well as to earn their trust after a close presidential election. Furthermore, Kennedy does this to unite the nations under a common cause. President Kennedy further illustrates America’s responsibility by using specific diction and syntax.
Although he shows these traits, he doesn’t realize that he has friends. He is finally convinced when Alai says to him, “‘Always my friend, always the best of my friends,’” ( ). The extent of his friendship is shown by this, warming the heart of readers. Another powerful example of his friendships extent is when William Bee answered, “‘Ender, if you 're on one side of the battle, it won 't be equal no matter what the conditions are.’ ‘Right!’, called the boys. Many of them laughed.
What if hypocritical, selfish Americans took your rights, along with your land? Albert Gallatin, an American Senator from 1845, is a primary source that talks about the account of Manifest destiny (the belief that the expansion of the US throughout the American continents was both justified and inevitable,) as a negative. Indian Chief John Ross was stripped of his freedom as well as his land. Alexander Hamilton, one of the United State’s own founding fathers, bashed Thomas Jefferson on his decision, mentioning quote, “lucky coincidences and unexpected circumstances and not the result of any wise or thoughtful actions on the part of Jefferson’s administration.” Manifest destiny was an extremely negative event in the history of the United States. Alexander Hamilton, one of the United State’s own founding fathers approached Manifest Destiny negatively, in an article in the newspaper,“New York Evening Post” titled: “Purchase of Louisiana” in July 1803.
He influenced society in that time by border protection. The Simpson-Mazzoli bill was a great example of that. Along with Reagan declaring the war against terrorism sent a worldwide message that we were a nation not to be messed with. Reagan also kept one of our most important imports safe and continuously being able to come into the U.S. Border protection was one of the biggest topics that Ronald Reagan shaped society in. Reagan had many views on society and politics.
Henry’s use of symbolism helped raise the excitement of war between the colonies causing them to battle Great Britain. Because they went to war, the colonies finally gained their freedom and independance. Within Henry’s speech, the use of symbolism helps to show the colonists what negative events are really taking place. Symbolism can be found in several other speeches or writing pieces to help give something a greater
Ronald Reagan became one of the most influential political leader of the modern work and a hero for the people of United States of America. Only one President can be compare to Reagan’s Presidency and that is President Franklin D. Roosevelts from 1933 to 1945, was equaled in same social and ideology and political impact.

Additionally, the President was able to suspend any writ of habeas corpus, which prevented trials from taking place (2009). Booth himself wrote about Lincoln in a negative manner. “Our country owed all her troubles to him, and God simply made me the instrument of his punishment” (Booth, April 13-14, 1865). This quote proves that Booth saw the assassination of Lincoln as both patriotic and
His letter to his mother allows every audience member to think back on personal conflicts they may have had when it came to disappointing someone close to them. The detailed sadness and attempts to better/correct himself, puts the reader in a state of sympathy towards the author, allowing them to feel what he had gone through and effectively immersing them in the article. This use of Pathos benefits him as he effectively reaches his audience on a personal and emotional level, reminding them that though everyone is different, we are all still humans. Kefalas makes an effort to blend these emotions with his argument, making an attempt to win over his audience and bring them to his side. This effective strategy aims straight at the hearts of the readers as he/she must question if what they recently believed in, is truly humane and justified.
The American people claim Ronald Reagan to be one of the most influential and greatest president, and icon, of all time. He was the man to bring Conservatism officially into the Government. Most of what made him a great influence was during his presidency when he begn his plan to fix the economy, bring back American pride and exceptionalism to the people, and end the communist threat. He was the one president that accomplished in 8 years what took multiple presidents to do. He is the man that ended the Cold War, and made America the better place it is now.
