Since the founding of America, the courts were designated as the final arbiters of justice, but were inefficient in its execution. The judicial branch should support the federal government, not weigh it down. Hence, replacing the court system with coin flips adequately resolves all of its current
At Little Rock Central, everyone says that there is no equal opportunity and that racism still exists, which is true in many ways. Currently, prestigious academic programs solely seek for those that are hispanic/latino and African American, yet not for those who are Asian and Caucasian because everyone automatically assumes that they have a lot of money. This is not fully true and since we even have a candidate for president, Donald Trump, who will not allow Muslims in because they are supposedly a “threat”. Over time, our society has grown and improved from its immoral ways, yet society still has that hint of segregation. As an effect of all these assumptions, lifestyles and adversaries, social relationships have caused different races to not communicate as much with each other without insulting them.
Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped. With the wall comes its high costs like the cost of materials to build it or the money paid to the workers that are building it. When President Trump was doing the presidential campaign, he predicted the border was going to cost about twelve billion dollars, but that turned out to be untrue. Vanda Felbab-Brown herself writes, "... A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) internal report in February put the cost at $21.6 billion, but that may be a major underestimate.” Most of this is due to the size of the wall and all the fees that come along with building the wall on other territories. You would think that Trump would pay for it all himself but, that is simply not the case.
For instance, the Civil Rights Movement solely would have been significantly less brutal if the government had accepted racial justice and made reforms regarding african american rights. However, because our society was stuck in the systems of decades prior, our government objected to any sort of improvement, even if it did seem more ethical. Many of our leaders at the time were headstrong to what they had been taught: non-whites are inferior. Even if the ethics they had been raised on were false and inhumane, many leaders remained firm in their belief and intolerant to any idea of civil rights. Tuchman’s claim is relevant in instances like the civil rights movement as the governmental leaders were persistent in their own, intolerant beliefs.
This truth hiding is also causes society a portrayal of deceitfulness, which can cause problems. Next banning books takes away a person 's First Amendment right; this means that we are not getting our right to speech as listed on the first line of the Bill of Rights. Banning books takes away our Constitutional rights, which every American citizen has. These are just a few of the reasons books banning is a huge national problem. In the
They do not have any of the traditional tools for lower court judges; instead, they have sanctions. Informal sanctions supplement with formal rules, and avoiding reversals are one of the informal motivations for the lower courts. Lower courts desire to avoid reversal, and do not want to be overturned as there is prestige about having a decision made that is not being constantly reviewed and consequently reversed. The Supreme Court only look at the role of certiorari, and do not look at the certiorari that were not granted, nor at factual decisions. They are not seeing if they are creating or upholding doctrine.
Words do not directly lead to violence, in fact words are often used to settle disputes in a more constructive way than violence. One’s inability to accept the views of another person is not the fault of the latter, but the former. Fighting words can be qualified as words that are not necessary to communication of information or opinions. The Fighting Words Doctrine allows the government to favoritize and discriminate citizens, which is exactly the opposite of what the First Amendment is all about. The First Amendment keeps the government from limiting speech, especially unpopular opinions because the views of the minority are just as important as the views of the
Over the last 250 years, America has had controversy over the word Federalism. It is used as a concept in the constitution but it is never mentioned. Federalism is basically the power that is separated from the States’ Government and the National Government. In my opinion I feel like we need more federalism, because I feel like it will control all of the factioning done by the government. I feel like the factioning is the government trying to take away our rights.
Since you said to write about a topic I could relate to the most, I am going to write about how my siblings and I struggle with undocumented parents to this day. Immigration is probably the most overlooked and ignored issue in the past years. Bernie Sanders in a speech onced said “We cannot and should not sweep up millions of men, women, and children – many of whom lived here for many years, contribute to our society, and are integrated into the fabric of American life – and throw them out of the country unjustly”. “Equality for all” is probably the most famous quote in American history yet equality is not distributed equally. I truly believe that everybody deserves to have a share in the “American Dream”.
Lincoln is more of a fight for the 13th amendment and offers us an idea on how Republicans struggled to pass the vote. They needed twenty percent of Democrats and all the republicans. Even getting the republicans to support the amendment was a challenge. However, we fail to see how the African American is playing a role in this movie, they appear in the background while white men give them their rights. After a long period of negotiations, President Lincoln was able to pass the 13th amendment under a congress that didn’t have southern representation.
