  • Federal Government
    555 words
    How much power should the federal government posses The government is responsible for creating beneficial laws for its citizens, but many times over-steps its bounds. In trying to make laws to protect health and well-being, the government takes away from its citizens freedom and rights as competent adults.

The U.S. government was built on the grounds of combating oppression o...

  • Descendents Of African Americans Slaves With Reparations
    1,054 words
    If the United States government were to support the reparations to the descendents of African American slaves it would be an admitting of their responsibility. This is an issue that the United States government does not want to bring back to the forefront.

  • Connotation Of The Words Auden

Individuals who met the government's standards were lauded as model and patriotic citizens. Those who did not, such as those in the Red Scare of 1950's, were ostracized. This alarmed a generation of writ...
  • U.S. Federal Government

People were employed by privately owned businesses and the poor, if they received any help at all, were aided b...
  • American Airports And Flight Security
    1,221 words

  • Sacred Duties And Obligations To Their Government
    766 words
    The fathers of the Constitution explicitly pointed out that the people do "ordain and establish this Constitution" not for themselves, but for "the United States of America". John F.

These statements come to the same conclusion: the people of America have a greater duty and obligation to serve their country than they do to their own self-gain. Lets us refer to the Bill of Rights as an example. Thi...
  • Totalitarian Government A Citizen's Life
