GEORGE WASHINGTON Born on February 22nd, 1732 in Mount Vernon, VA, George Washington, the first president of the United States was an Indian killer and a slaveholder, though he told his country he cherished them. In fact, he owned his first slaves at age 11. Not only did he tell his people lies, but he started The Whiskey Rebellion in the year of 1791 due to himself enforcing a tax pay on farmers who were selling bottles of whiskey on the frontier, but then again, we all make mistakes. Or was it really a mistake? Washington wasn 't all bad.
There have been forty-four presidents and they all gave n “Inauguration Speech” like George Washington, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and even Barack Obama. They all have their own meaning and are sentimental to them. My favorite is John F. Kennedy, and he was an amazing so it was very truthful. He put his heart in it.
British Columbia, Columbia, Colombo, District of Columbia, the Columbia river, and Columbus day are all named after the one and only, Christopher Columbus. Christopher Columbus has many things named after him and is one of the most celebrated and renowned men in America even though his is not American.

While technical definitions of the word “paranoia” are about a mental disorder, it’s the only word that fully encompasses the fear, mistrust, and suspicion demonstrated by the film JFK. This kind of paranoia is generally a suspicion of conspiracy, which can be anything from exaggerated stories about Freemasons in America, to a belief that the government faked the Moon Landings, to thinking that the American government conspired to kill the president so our country could go to war. Many paranoid conspiracy theories don’t do much of anything besides hold back the people who believe in them, but others, like in JFK, can cause harm or injustice to those accused. However, in the movie, Oliver Stone puts this kind of paranoia in a positive light, as if saying that conspiracy theorists are righteous seekers of truth and justice. Paranoia is a major theme behind the movie JFK, and shows how far some people will go to prove a suspected conspiracy.

I think Theodore Roosevelt did not set the country on an unsustainable path to ruin. It’s extremely hard to predict the future on something like what a country will turn into. Theodore Roosevelt probably didn't think about the future consequences of his decisions. I don’t blame him for that he probably thought he was doing the right thing. We can’t blame someone who’s been dead for 97 for the current economic problems.

And our duty as a Party is not to our Party alone, but to the nation, and, indeed, to all mankind.
“I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” (Christopher Reeve) Heroes don’t need to a have a special feature about themselves but instead, their power is helping others instead of oneself’s. Heroes aren’t the people usually fantasized in movies they’re just normal people who risk their lives for others, do extraordinary things, and people who don’t care about themselves but others. Heroes no matter the consequences will help to benefit the needs of others.
