On Thursday January 20 th 2005, President Bush delivered his second inaugural address after being sworn in for his second term. In his address Bush promised to keep his word and fulfill his duty as president of the United States. These duties have not been upheld according to the numerous protestors who showed up at his Inauguration. In his Inaugural Address Bush discussed many things. The inaugural address was a speech which would reassure the American people that President Bush will lead us to victory. In the Address Bush promises to fulfill the oath that he has sworn.
He said " The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands The best hope for peace in our is the expansion of freedom in all the world" (web). This meant that in order to maintain peace and freedom we must help the countries who suffer in dictatorship and terrorism. Peace and freedom are America's vital interests. Every person in this world is said to have equal rights. " No one deserves to be a slave" said Bush (web).
The address says that the United States policy is to support the growth of democratic movements. Bush also said that he will tighten security. The government is working to improve security tactics and make sure its is strong and effective. Bush will make clear to other nations the choice between oppression and freedom.
He said that the people do not and will not be "bullied." He wants them to stand for their liberty and the United States will help them. President Bush has declared to end tyranny. His advisors said that his speech reflected the main goals and purposes of his foreign policies among Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East. "And all the allies of the United States can know: We honor your friendship, we rely on your counsel, and we depend on your help. Division among free nations is a primary goal of freedom's enemies. The concerted effort of free nations to promote democracy is a prelude to our enemies' defeat" said Bush (web).
Bush said that "relations with 'every ruler and every nation' will be predicated on how they treat their own people, a profound break from traditional U. S. policy and from the Bush administration's practices in his first term, when it worked with repressive governments in the war against terrorism. In his doctrine for the next four years, Bush presented the United States as a beacon for the subjugated around the world and promised to confront the despots who enchain them" (web - Bush Pledges to Spread Freedom). On Thursday George Walker Bush took an oath and was sworn in for his second term as President of the United States. He also gave his second Inaugural speech which inspired people around the world and gave them hope.
Freedom, equality, and peace will grow as nations recognize the importance of ridding the world of terror. I feel that Bush in his upcoming term will uphold global law and justice.
