With some Americans refusing to stay open minded to the beliefs of the opposite political party, our country will get nowhere. As one of our country’s Founding Fathers, Washington would not approve of this, and demand the next president change this. If George Washington was still alive today, he would be able to give the next president advice to transform our country. Someone with the unbiased mindset toward the two main political parties would be a much needed perspective for the next president.
The first example of pathos is seen in the quote, “ We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed” (King 3). This statement supports King’s argument by expressing how his people can no longer wait for their freedom, because if they do, it’ll never come. In this case, good things do not come to those who wait. The second example of pathos is seen when King says, “If today’s church does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church. it will lose its authenticity, forfeit the loyalty of millions, and be dismissed as an irrelevant social club with no meaning for the twentieth century” (King 9).
The progressive era was a historical movement in time where extensive social activism and political reform were taking place all across America. If would be inadequate to say that one class of women, either the working class or the middle class, were affected more or less than the other by this era. They were both handing different forms of change and reform, but all of equal value. The working class women were piloting research, implementing reformation programs, attempting to increase wages, improve working conditions, and lobbying legislation to make positive changes. Amongst the working class women were many notable women that changed history.
This act is preventing us from living to our full potential. Those Brits have the willingness to come to us, the American Colonists and say that we have to pay extra taxes for something that they do as well, this act is just hypocritical. Everyone deserves the same rights and it’s not fair to discriminate by who you are. The Proclamation of 1763 shows us that we don’t have equal rights as of now considering that American settlers cannot expand west of the Appalachian Mountains. Do you want a government that forces you to do stuff without getting to have a say, or a government that will listen to you and you will get a voice in it.
One of the most recognizable people in the U.S.A, Rosa Parks played a role in the reaction that would give rights to millions of people. Her simple action helped push people to fight for the civil rights movement. Rosa encouraged these people because of the hardships she went through because of her action. Without her, the civil rights movement could of failed, and those rights may fail to exist today.
We need to keep fighting until these rights blanket the entire population and we are all safe in our own skin. We are a country built on the back of horror and death, so it is time that we step away from our past and make the sacrifice of those hurt worth it. We need to make this a country that we can be proud of
Whether it be religion, race, gender equality, right to vote; one thing is for certain, these freedoms came at a cost. In current times, countries all over the world are fighting for what we have. The least we could do is continue to fight for the things that make us,
Logan Feys argues, “To be human is to be an individual human, with individual tastes, talents, values, and aspirations that are distinct from those of others. Living in society, we are under constant pressure to surrender our individuality to the will of the major, the school, the workplace, the family, etc”. People should be both non-conformist and conformist. Individuals should be non-conformist and conformist because it is important to be different from everyone else but it’s also important to share some similarities with other individuals as well.
I would like to begin, sirs, by announcing; I am not the first with these thoughts. Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine – only a few of the men that share the same notion. It is true; I do not hold the reputation of these men. Nonetheless, I have been involved in American Politics for the past decade . We have passed the simple point of peace.
To be honest I wouldn’t give up my freedom for increased security from terrorism. Benjamin Franklin stated, “They who would give up essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.” I couldn’t have said it any better. We have been fighting for our rights for a very long time. Many people have died to ensure that people have liberties.
I’ve ascertained that we as women have come a long way. However, we still have a long way to go and I am grateful to know that the many challenges women faced before me have led me into becoming the strong woman I am today. I’ve learned a lot about women in the 1920’s and being a woman here into the 20th Century, makes me happy to know the advantages and opportunities I now have. Giving the right, to vote, the right to a higher Education, having the opportunity to see my dreams come true, came from the help of women from my past. I am now able to accomplish, almost any goal within reason, just the same as many goals as any man could or would ever try to accomplish.
