When Ronald Reagan and George Bush first declared a War on Drugs in America, they opened a bunch of chaos, crime, social injustice, and a lot of heartache in the black community. The Drug War policies and laws that was implemented, violates human rights, and force police officers to aggressively pursue nonviolent criminals. This system was perfectly designed to gain social control rather than relieve neighborhoods from drugs, which have a lot of citizens questioning was this a major success or failure.

The British impressed thousands of American sailors into the Royal Army, punishing Americans despite America’s state of sovereignty during Britain’s war with France. This blatant disrespect of America’s neutrality was a big factor in America’s decision to declare war against Britain. Furthermore, the British still kept the Orders in Council even after America passed several embargo policies hoping for change. The policies were ignored by the British and Americans were only harmed by Jefferson and Madison’s attempts for peace. Ultimately, the War of 1812 was due to Britain’s inability to respect America as a nation separate from the French and British

I feel the same way, I still believe that the United States should get rid of the School Of the Americans, we should also stop invading smaller country and assassinating their leader. There is so much hate from other countries tours the United States. Back then I never knew why so many other countries hated us but after learning more about the War Power Act, and reading about how many countries the U.S has invaded, is no wonder why we are hated around the world. When you have the U.S. invading Countries like Iraq, Nicaragua, Angola, Cuba and Vietnam, without the Congress makes you believe that the War Power Act gives to much power to one
They ask if our own nation wasn’t using massive doses of violence to solve its problems” (Paragraph 3). Dr. King feels that he cannot speak against violence being used in the ghettos without having protested the greatest use of violence, “[his] own government.” (Paragraph 3). Dr. King uses specificity such as “Molotov cocktails and rifles” (Paragraph 3) to create a vivid image of the violence that has occurred in his own nation. Dr. King made this speech to address the violence going on in the Vietnam War. Throughout the speech he is answering the question of “Why a civil rights leader has become a anti-war protester?” He uses rhetorical strategies such as; diction, similes, and specificity to strengthen his argument.
She used her previous acting experience to pretend to be sick. The court allowed her to get better first, but after she had “healed”, she acted weak at court.

On October 28, 1919, Congress, over President Woodrow Wilson’s veto, passed the Volstead Act, more popularly called the National Prohibition Act. This act established the banning or prohibition of: selling, producing and distributing alcoholic products. This act put thousands out on the streets and angered millions of Americans. But as Americans, the citizens joined together and managed to discover a bypass for this newly established law. Bootlegging was the given name for this detour.
As stated in the article by Trevor Burrus “Face It: Guns Are Here to Stay”, “Even if the government enacted a massive program to confiscate these weapons, the feds would fail in their task and frighten millions of Americans in the process.” Gun laws simply penalize and restrict honest citizens while criminals continue to find ways and loopholes to arm themselves. Gun laws currently established serve their purpose rather poorly as criminals unceasingly buy guns even after they are said to be forbidden. History serves as a clear example of how guns protect the rights and liberties of individuals as it was private guns that aided colonists in fighting the British and gaining America’s
