Many Americans voted for FDR because he told them that he would take bold steps to solve the nation’s problems. In the middle of a horrible depression this still gave people hope. “Almost every American found something to be pleased about and something to complain about in this motley collection of bills, but it was clear that FDR was taking the ‘direct, vigorous’ action that he’d promised in his inaugural address”. Even though he wasn’t doing anything to make the economy better, he was still
Andrew Jackson now symbolizes presidential greatness. Founder of the national party system,champion of the common man,and creator of the strong presidency are but a few of the accolades history and historians accord him"(184). He obviously thinks very highly of Jackson. The reader can assert that Curtis wrote this book so people can sympathize with Jackson, and even though he was not perfect, he always did the best that
As well as learning the reasons he took the role as president, we understand the reasons Washington retired. I was not aware of the fact he retired because of the many rumors that were floating around. Washington had so much abuse from the media and he eventually was tired of it. We typically hear about the Farewell Address and don’t ask any questions. We just assume that Washington said farewell; there is a whole other side to the address.
The best way to describe Theodore Roosevelt is an “Original”, a man like no other helping shape and influence American history for the better. Mostly known for serving two terms as president and being one of the youngest president’s to serve in history, but he was more than that. What made Theodore Roosevelt special was that he believed in peace but just because he wanted peace did not mean he would be a coward and be bullied by others. He has even won a noble peace prize for helping end the Russo-Japanese war. Being one of the few faces found on Mount Rushmore he has earned his right to be remembered throughout history.
It was never far from his mind to envision himself as a hero and a conquistador. " There [was] a persistent feeling in his correspondence as well as in his children 's writings that people like Thomas Jefferson, who shied away from battle, were not completely men" (Hendrickson 342). For Hamilton, it wasn 't the blood, the pain, or the suffering of battle that made it appealing to him. Hamilton viewed it as a stage for him to act on, and to display the qualities of selfless courage that would win him the honor, love and respect he so
He really let people talk and listened to the problems. John Adams had a hard presidency many people didn 't agree with him. First his Vice President was on the opposing side which made it hard. He raised many new taxes and increased the power of the central government which many didn 't like. Adams creates the alien and sedition
Many people think they can fulfill the role of being president, Others know that they cannot. Being a president is a huge thing to come by and not many can do it but thomas jefferson i think did the best at filling in the space of leadership. To begin with, Thomas jefferson was known for doing many things that other presidents did not really acomplish, for example Jefferson served in many other parts of the government from here to france and did a decent job at it as well(Source #3). He learned politics down to the core so that he could run his country the right way making him and his people happy in the process.
Douglass makes sure to remind his audience that their “fathers were wise men”, and so their decision to engage in violent resistance was just as well a wise decision (Douglass 111). Perhaps the most compelling argument Douglass makes throughout the entirety of the speech is that The United State’s fathers “were peace men; but they preferred revolution to peaceful submission to bondage. You may well cherish the memory of such men” (Douglass 113). Including this points out how America’s founding fathers are cherished for the change they brought about through the means of violent resistance. If they could be celebrated for such actions, how can the enslaved be so reprimanded for taking part in the same determined fight?
Now, they can no longer control it because of the modern-day technology allowing for leaking to occur. Also, the cyberspace accepts more and more people to voice their opinions. (can you rephrase this and back it up?) In turn, the Justice Department is receiving an “overwhelming consensus” in favor of a reporter’s privilege. They continued by saying that “Congress is currently considering such legislation to address the unique concerns raised in cases like [United States of America v. Jeffrey Alexander Sterling].”
Recently, many people have forgotten why the United States of America was formed, for freedom and independence from a king and state. Some of us even have trouble remembering what rights we do have, due to the gradual but continuous media and educational focus on more current distractions. Few have taken notice, or been able to see through the daily fog of which Iphone to buy or what flag offends who. There is still discrimination everywhere we look being race, body type, the religion we follow. More and more police are being caught on camera shooting unarmed citizens, throwing bombs into cribs during no-knock, warrantless entries, and causing the general public to lose faith in a system of governance originally set up to protect and serve.
While reading I would often have to put the book down and think about how shady this whole operation was, and how genius Woodward and Bernstein were for figuring out various leads and clues. The way this book is written the reader feels as if they are right there with the reporters investigating. The whole scene when Bernstein flies to Miami to investigate one the burglar’s phone records and an influx of money in his bank account, and the reader finds out that this money was from donations for Nixon’s campaign, makes the reader feel disgusted with American politics. Both men provide so much information in this book about exactly how Watergate happened and who was involved, it made me realize how a man who was elected to run this country honestly and with integrity, was so twisted and a criminal. The authors perfectly capture the severity of this scandal and how it truly is one of the shadiest and biggest political scandals to ever occur in our nation’s history.
A senator must be elected and that shows he is sure to captivate the audience 's heart. Prior to this he said his opinion on the management of politics particularly the present administration in
I’m standing here with so much in my mind yet no words capable of leaving my tongue. I speak on the behalf of lady Macbeth when I say that my heart aches to know that such an honorable man has been taken away from us. King Duncan was respected by many people and prioritized his country before him. He was a very trustworthy king to his men and to his people as well. I’m standing here
