We aren’t even close to the full population voting during the election. From this past election, people still don’t understand how Clinton won the popular vote, and lost the election, and then they think this is all unfair. But that is not how the founding fathers had planned for it, because if the majority always won, then the minority would always lose. Also, there are so many people that don’t really understand politics and what each candidate represents and will do, if we
In this paper, I will answer these questions and argue Max Abrahams views that terrorists are simply disenfranchised people seeking to belong. In the US when we think of terrorism we immediately picture a bearded Muslin man shouting allahu
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.
But recently gerrymandering has become more controversial because people feel that it has taken away their rights as a voter and it swings the votes to one side by a big percentage. Current cases are before the courts to decide if gerrymandering is legal. Some states have been discussing whether it should still be allowed during elections. “Many efforts are underway to remedy this political
4. No, obviously not, because if anyone or many people in the U.S. did not like him then they would rebel or create some type of havoc to show how much they disliked Washington. Many people would be upset with the decision and that would play a big role on how the government would move forward. 5.
McCarthyism falsely accused people of supporting communism and being unloyal to America(Document D). These claims had no proper evidence which justified the said assertions. Individuals who were accused of being a communist or a spy, even if the facts were not accurate, were looked down upon and occasionally prosecuted. Accused people no longer supported the war, for it led to the government punishing the innocent(Document G). Not only was the government believed to be unreliable, but trust between people was a large issue during the Cold War.
Each one wants to portray one political party as the villain and the other as the hero. Common news sources that tend to be very biased are Fox News, CNN, BuzzFeed News, and many more. With many social problems each party wants to solve them one way, and any other way is wrong, however, this is not an ideal way to govern. You step on everyone’s toes, and things wont get done. A very popular topic that divides the nation greatly is abortion, many think its wrong and cruel, while others believe its correct in certain situations.
We hear Democrats blaming Republicans for legislative stagnation and the rise in unemployment. The main effect of these occurrences is known as party polarization, a phenomenon in the United States where the two main political parties are seen as polar opposites of each other and therefore highly discouraged from collaborating or uniting. Party polarization causes a person’s political beliefs and ideals to be defined by the political party they identify with. There are many reasons for this devotion to a party’s political standpoints, such as regional and/or cultural differences, the desire for an increase in each party’s power and influence by special interest groups, and the general narrowing of political parties into the two-party system.
There are so many candidates running for the republican candidate, and many of them don’t speak a lot. Donald Trump, however, cannot keep his mouth shut, and manages to make himself known to everyone. His face is everywhere, and he seems to be the first person people think of when they think about the election. However, maybe if people started watching the debates and paying attention to what Donald Trump actually says, including his grandiose plans for a giant wall, then maybe the public will understand why Donald Trump isn’t a good choice for the Presidential
Most came to believe that he did not care for the economy or the people only what they carried in their pockets causing him to lose support for re-election. After his two successful foreign affairs, Noriega and the Gulf War Americans were definitely happy and showed their support for George. One event that weakened the American people and George’s relationship is when George lied about not having new taxes. WHen he clearly passed acts that established new taxes, this angered many
Many people have different views on religion, and bin Laden’s religious views are tremendously different than other religions. Bin Laden was a Muslim. Muslims believe that killing and attacking people were religiously correct. Him and his religion believed violence was the right thing to do from God’s perspective (Dearden, n.d.).
How can a person with that much money relate to an ordinary person? The United States has made great strides towards bringing awareness towards diversity, but with how this political campaign has been shaping up, it has caused a divide not only between political parties, but in race relations as well. Trump’s average supporter does not have anything in common with him except for what the words that come from his mouth. Mr. Trump is popular with people who are against immigration, have fallen behind on these hard economic times, and do not hold a college degree (Guo, 2015). In the same article, the author discussed how Republicans without a college degree were more likely to think that immigrants weaken the economy more than college educated Republicans do (Guo, 2015).
It has been proven in 2000, when George W. Bush lost the popular vote by .51% yet still won the electoral college vote by 271 to 266, this doesn’t seem right to me at all. Part of living in the U.S. is having the opportunity to vote for the person running your country, we are always told “our vote matters” which it does in a sense, but it seems more as though we are voting for other people to vote. The Electoral College system is very unequitable in my eyes. The people chosen for our electors meet on the Monday following
This rhetoric can encourage for more terrorism to take place, especially in the Western world where this rhetoric is most prevalent. Anti-Muslim rhetoric can encourage terrorism because it causes some Muslims to feel hatred toward Westerners and be violent to Westerners as a result. Therefore, I have come to the conclusion after reviewing all of the information given, that ethnic profiling should not be used to prevent terrorism. Not only does profiling encourage terrorist acts, it has a countless amount of ethical implications as explained by the Open Society Justice Initiative. This source persuaded me that ethnic profiling is ineffective, supported by studies that have been conducted.
