Lincoln 's main rhetorical appeal was the use of emotional language in using word such as dearm , best , last , and hope. Using these words to show how american needs to get back to it roots of why it was formed. To be a safe haven for people who are being persecuted not to persecute people because their look or act different from us. This also appeals you your ethos because irtt saying America’s not where it should be how can you help get it their. I agree at with this quote that at that point in time , but that were better now.
Amendment Paper The first amendment was passed on September 25, 1789, and was written by James Madison. It was written because american citizens demanded a guarantee of their basic freedoms. Many people were worried that the government would take away their right to freedom, and they wanted to have a document that stated that they couldn 't do that. America was founded by people that had immigrated here from Europe who wanted religious freedom. I think the first amendment is so important because it covers the rights of religious freedom, freedom of speech and the press, and as well as the right to assemble and petition the government.
I believe the union will hold strong! R: thanks for being here HC: thanks for having me From these two men u can see that there is complete different ideology as to what will happen. Will we stay unified as the United States or will we shatter and cluster in accordance to our ideology? What does the future have instore for us as a Union? Only time can
All I’m trying to say is that this is our chance to free America from Britain. I wouldn’t care If i were on the verge of dying I will fight till my last breath and keep my heart towards the truth. We are an amazing country and we deserve to be free and that is why I am Reenlisting. Because this is my duty to protect our country from Britain’s unfair rule. The question “Would you Re- Enlist” is significant because it shows who will stand for America or back down.
Freedom of religion is another right that is very important. People have the right to practice their religion or not practice any religion. Freedom of religion makes living in the U.S. more comfortable due to the fact that in other countries everyone has to follow one religion. Freedom of protesting is another right that the first amendment grants us. Protests help people get together for a cause and even if it good or bad it should be allowed because we were given the right to protest.
Madison introduced a series of thirty-nine amendments to the constitution in the House of Representatives. Among his recommendations Madison proposed opening up the Constitution and inserting specific rights limiting the power of Congress. Seven of these limitations would become part of the ten ratified Bill of Rights amendments. On September 25, 1789,congress approved twelve articles of amendment to the Constitution and submitted them to the states for ratification. If Madison was not so stubborn on getting his way then I am not sure we would have The Bill of Rights, or as many rights as Madison wanted.
So why should I give up these rights that have been long fought for. We come from a diverse nation and we should be able to find other ways to fight terrorism other than sacrificing our liberties. Our civil liberties take precedence. The rights of the people in America should not be invaded upon because these rights are warranted. If our rights are invaded it not only oversteps the
Of the ten amendments in the Bill of Rights, the most important one in my opinion is the first amendment. The First Amendment protects the freedom of speech, religion, and the press, as well as the right to assemble and petition. In parts of the world you may face execution for speaking, assembling, or petitioning against the government, including members of the press, or following a different religion. Thus I consider myself very lucky to be living in a country who grants it 's citizens such
We honor them by honoring those principles of freedom – even when a callous few vainly attempt to demean the dignity rightfully due them.” The intended message is that these soldiers fought to protect America’s freedoms, including that of free speech. In honoring them we should honor what they stood for, because even if a select few wish to abuse free speech it is still for the greater good. The opinions of Hudson Jr. and Collins are consistent with the viewpoints of this essay. Westboro Baptist Church may be a revolting group, but the First Amendment protects exactly these types of people. The Phelps family has the right to voice their opinions, and preventing them from doing so would be unconstitutional and only add another wrong to the equation.
The First Amendment of The Constitution is engraved in the minds of the American people for being the guarantor of the Freedom of Speech clause. Nevertheless, the vagueness of said clause has been subjugated to challenges that ask; “Should Freedom of Speech be regulated?” The Supreme Court appeared to be inconsistent for creating answers on a case-by-case basis. However, in the midst of said inconsistency, the Supreme Court’s most compelling standard to determine if speech can be constitutionally restricted is if said speech abridges people from other constitutionally guaranteed rights. To begin, establishing a line between constitutionally protected speech and regulated speech proved to be a daunting task for the Supreme Court. Most importantly, it meant that the Supreme Court was going to run into another major issue; Whether or not individuals would be partially abridged of their Freedom of
Without the Mayflower Compact, the American people might still be governed by England. Similarly, the journey of the pilgrims to find religious and moral freedom has become a symbolic pillar of our nation 's values. When the pilgrims came to America, they were searching for one thing in particular. Their religious freedom, and they were willing to fight tooth and nail for it. Today, freedom is the cornerstone of what it means to be an American.
The first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution are collectively known as the Bill of Rights. Largely the product of James Madison, the 10 amendments officially became part of the Constitution in 1791, after being approved by Congress in its initial session in 1789. Initially, 12 amendments were adopted by Congress and sent to the states for ratification or rejection; the first two amendments were not approved, thus leaving the 10 amendments as we know them today. Madison 's speech in the U.S. House of Representatives on June 8, 1789, in which he argued persuasively for the insertion of a document to the Constitution that would protect "the great rights of mankind," still stands today as one of the most consequential speeches in the annals
The 1800s would be the start of a new era for the United States. That was the start of the government getting involved that would last into today. In the early 1800s America was evolving into a new country with new sets of laws, that soon would be known as amendments. The Bill of Rights was the beginning of the United States developing a structured government system. The Bill of Rights were the first ten Amendments of the Constitution, and were laws that Americans had to follow.
