Constitution place on state’s power to determine voter qualifications? Those limitations start with the Voting Rights Act of 1965. This act prohibits racial discrimination when voting in the local, state, and federal levels. “Section 2, which closely followed the language of the 15th amendment, applied a nationwide prohibition of the denial or abridgment of the right to vote on account of race or color” (ourdocuments.gov). Not since the reconstruction period after the civil war had there been such a “significant statutory change in the relationship between the Federal and state governments” (ourdocuments.gov).
The 22nd amendment states that, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice...” Recent discussions and proposals have been put forth to repeal or modify the amendment. No person should have that opportunity to surrender to the charms of power. Two four year terms should be more than enough time to make a positive change for the nation. Two Presidential terms should be the limit of power, and I am not the only person who believes so. “Term limits… have [been] approved… in 19 states.”(graphics) Past presidents have supported the limiting of terms for presidency; two supporters were George Washington and Harry Truman.

(2)This caused a lot of controversy because some believed it was unconstitutional.
Although there has been a decline in the number of homeless Veterans since this announcement, the current glide path suggests they will miss the goal unless services are expanded and more success is achieved. In fact, in 2012, VA served more than 240,000 Veterans who were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless—21 percent more than the year before. These numbers suggest the VA is becoming more effective and is serving more of the demographic in need, but it also paints an unacceptable picture of nearly a quarter million Veterans who were faced with life on the streets that year. More disturbing than this is the fact the percentage of homeless female Veterans with children increases each year, despite current VA
In fact, according to a study done by the Oxford University, attendance has gone up by twenty percent since 1990. There is much more that one can do with any kind of degree than anyone think of.

They believe that the education of the arts is a waste of time and money, resulting in the failure of those classes being in schools for students.

Gun violence in America has been alarmingly increasing since the 90s and has continued throughout the years. Although guns may save lives, evidence shows that most guns in America are stolen from other thieves and misused. Due to lack of gun control found in nearly fifty percent of the states, guns are mostly misused for other reasons. Since 2012, there have been gun sales spiking across the U.S. Every year, America’s minimum increase in gun sales is five percent. The American government should raise gun laws to reduce gun violence, which leads to death.
Cosmetology has a lot of downfalls to being successful. Having to complete 1,250 hours then testing for state boards. If state boards are passed, I’ll be a certified hairdresser.

The term “gender gap” attempts to explain the differences between the genders in their party identifications and their voting choices. In the election of 1980 the discussion of the emergence of a gender gap ensued for this was the first time more women than men voted and there proved to be a significant gender divide between the Democrats and Republicans. From the 1920s until the 1980s, lower levels of female voters were recorded. And after the 80s, slightly higher levels of female voters were recorded. In addition to the changing number of voters, a gender reversal in voting choice and party identification has been noted.
Is there really a need to be married anymore? Does marriage actually benefit your relationship, or is it an outdated institution that we’ll be better off without? In this speech, I’ll convince you that marriage is a thing of the past, and that society’s views on marriage have changed enough in the past decade that marriage really isn’t necessary anymore. One of the main purposes of marriage is to maintain a permanent relationship, but nowadays marriage doesn’t lead to a permanent relationship due to the increase of divorce rates. In the US, 41-50% of first marriages end in divorce, and the average marriage duration is 8 years.
They house out of state inmates to make extra money and charge a per diem or a monthly rate for each prisoner. CCA tried to gain full control of all the prison system of Tennessee but they were declined due to the opposition from public employees, disagreement and the skepticism of the state legislature. After the initial defeat at first, CCA still ended up successfully expanded and has other for-profit prison companies. “As of December 2000, there were 153 private correctional facilities (prisons, jails and detention centers) operating in the United States3 with a capacity of over 119,000 (Cheung, 2004).” Some people believe and set an argument that the privatization can save the government money and that the profit can help.
