He has chosen to title his essay “Losing the War.” This however is not originally the title. The longer title is as follows; “World War II had faded into movies, anecdotes, and archives that nobody cares about anymore. Are we losing the war?” Albeit subtle subtle, this is perhaps one of the most powerful choices Sandlin made in his argument. He is suggesting that although the war is considered “won” in the history books, the trauma it caused —as the general nature of the war— is anything but victorious. He is also arguing that the American public is, actually, losing the war.
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.
Thomas Jefferson’s opinion of how the national government should be run, changed quite a bit over the course of his presidency. He started it off as a strict constructionist as he opposed the excise laws and his opposition to the Alien and Sedition acts. At some point he began to transform into a loose constructionist when he bought the louisiana purchase and he improved our navy to help fight the Barbary war. Somewhere during his presidency his views changed and it was most likely before he bought the Louisiana territory. Before Jefferson entered the presidential office he was a states rights supporter and when the tax on whiskey was placed he opposed it, saying “The first error was to admit it by the Constitution.” (Doc A).
Abraham Lincoln, who is widely known as an advocator against slavery, was, in the beginning, not strongly one way or another. He said, that, “My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not to save or destroy slavery” (Doc. 10). His opinion later changed when he got a visit from Fredrick Douglas and he because a pro-abolitionist. After the civil war ended, all freed men were supposed to be given 40 acres of land, taken from the chief rebels but things got complicated, and most rebels were forgiven, and given their land back (Doc.
In Coates’s letter to his son, he wrote about the racial injustices that African Americans lived through from now and back then. Although most Americans believe that all the promises of the Civil Rights Movement have been realized based on Obama’s speech on Selma, after analyzing a Langston Hughes poem, Martin Luther King Jr.’s letter, and the article “A Letter To My Son” it is clear that we still have a long way from truly ridding America of racial tensions and progressing toward becoming a more integrated America. If you were to look at the world through the eyes of an African American back in the 1950’s, you would notice that everything is in black and white rather than color.
made a mistake. President Nixon would be the first American President to actually lose a war. Despite his actions against our government, John Kerry went on to be an elected Senator from the State of Massachusetts in 1996. His well-publicized history of being a radical supporter of the Vietnamese communists and possibly guilty of war crimes had no effect on the voters. Others believe that our moral decline began in the 1940’s and 1950’s with the Presidents Woodrow Wilson and President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Brown).

In “Trapped in Trump’s Brain” is an editorial written by Maureen Dowd, a democratic columnist. Recently, President Trump has been passing many laws that the public disagree upon such as the Ban Act. He also lack giving a good and efficient response in interviews. Many people see him having characteristics of a dictator. Her is that because Trump does not trust anyone who disagrees with him it leads to a political mess and shows his narcissistic side.
foreign and domestic policies because it scared Americans and caused tension within the country and worldwide, leading to a lack of trust within the country. The second Red Scare, propaganda, Russian growth in power, nuclear tension, and the Hollywood Ten were all parts of the war that damaged American policies. Civilians lost trust between one another and within the government. Communism intimidated many people, and the Cold War made it appear as though it would soon take over the world. However, Truman and Eisenhower made it evident that the United States was fighting for innocent civilians worldwide, but they could not promise a steady government or country while the tension exists with Russia, but the nation is doing what they must(Document C).
Because of this the US would have withdrawn without victory. This would cause world tension with their alliances. Not a good combination, but luckily these plans were not followed through by the president. If the world tension became even more serious and the US would have gone into debt, the economy would basically have another Great Depression except depression isn’t really great. This means that since your alliances have now become your enemies and do not support you, you will not receive any imports or any goods and you are already in debt.
After the elections of 1860s the Whigs party was left behind, and a new party was created to make a positive impact for the future. Abraham Lincoln became the first Republican president, and also he was one the best presidents the United States ever had. Since then, the United States has been ran by the sectional parties. Even thought it was not the first political party, the Republican Party was created to make a change, the Republican Party let humans be treated like humans. The Republican Party beat the Democrats and Whigs in making a movement against slavery, in my opinion is because is something that they were scared of, however the new sectional party helped them win the election of 1860, and then abolished slavery.
President Gerald Ford was left with a population of people that were let down by a scandal that knocked a candidate for the best president this nation had ever seen and just dumped him out of the office. Also an endless conflict that was the war in Vietnam. Coming in with great hostility did not help President Ford when he pardoned Former President Nixon. But, Ford did face the stagflation and recession this nation was having during this time period. Ford always had in his mind that anything could happen that the United States was not immune to anything and this made his disbelief in Government Bailouts a reality.
They thought that the election of Abraham Lincoln threatened their way of living based on slavery. The Confederate’s president was Jefferson Davis, who was from Mississippi. Davis’ intentions were to peacefully secede, but the United States as a whole would not let that happen. Once war had officially begun, the Confederacy was off to a pretty good start being led by General Robert E. Lee from Virginia. Lee and his troops earned big victories within the first two years of the war.
have a political appeal since it had a synthesis of both liberal and conservative ends. The wrong elements of the reform that they also thought had a political appeal were strongly opposed by interest groups, leading to a subsequent failure of the reform (Hoffman, 2011, para. 33). The greatest undoing of the Clinton’s administration was they were overambitious by simultaneously trying to secure universal coverage, transforming the sector into a managed care, controlling costs, regulation of the private insurance market and also changing the financing of the sector through an employer mandate. Achieving of all these goals was a difficult political task that would be an uphill task to achieve with each dimension of the plan galvanizing the opposition.
