  • 15th amendment and african americans
    African Americans have had an extensive and vigorous plight when it comes to racial equality in the United States. From the Dred Scott vs Sanford case when the Supreme Court deemed that we were beings of an inferior order, to the absurd Jim Crow laws that stated that we were separate but equal, African Americans have dealt with many obstacles historically and still continue to deal with the short end of the draw socially in the present day. Throughout all of the issues that have been bestowed up

  • Immigration
    An issue long going in The United States has been the topic of immigration. The problem with immigration is solely economics and nothing more. People complain about aliens taking our jobs, lowering our wages, using up our law enforcement time and hospitals along with stealing our identities and a long list of many things. But I believe the real issue is that the common American doesnít understand the real outcomes of immigration. Immigration has been subject to news a lot lately and this is beca

  • Prison
    The incarcerated life of a prisoner is usually a reoccurring cycle; commit a crime, go to prison, get released. Commit another crime, go to prison yet again, and get released once more. For many criminals, this is the cycle that will define who they are. Is it their fault? Not entirely. The prison system is set up exclusively as a form of punishment, which it should be for the most part, but lacks in guidance. However, a large number of criminals who get locked up spend their days reflecting on

  • Why two different Chambers?
    I believe we have two different chambers for many reasons. There are two that I think is important or at least they should be important. Those reasons are peace and equality. Peace should be one of them because it will cut back on a lot of debates and arguing amongst themselves. Two different people, two different houses you get two different sides and hearings. I don\'t think anyone can make a right decision with so much drama going on. Secondly, equality should be another. Say for instance, th

  • Why we have a House and a Senate
    Why do we have two chambers in Congress, the House and Senate? Since members of both are elected by, and represent the people, wouldn\'t the lawmaking process be more efficient if bills were considered by only one body? While it may appear clumsy and often overly time-consuming, the two-chamber or "bicameral" setup of Congress works today exactly the way a majority of the Founding Fathers envisioned in 1787. Clearly expressed in the Constitution is the Founders\' belief that power should be shar

  • Judicial Bias Between White and Blue Collar Punishment
    There are many ways punishment is differentiated between the rich and poor, pointing out that white collar crimes including theft involving millions of dollars often get far lighter sentences than blue collar crimes.

Criminals often receive preferential treatment and lighter sentences than blue collar criminals. There are many reasons this happens mainly due to their influence and high pa

    Introduction Democracy is a word commonly used in the justification for the United States of America interceding in international disputes for the sake of a certain country?s people.

However, one must be aware of what exactly democracy is and why it a valued system over other governmental systems that have been in place for hundreds of years s

    Classical geopolitics has its origins in the emerging geographical conditions of world order at the end of the 19th century.
