Political Issues between Richard Burr and Elaine Marshall
With the race for Senator of North Carolina coming to a close and with Richard Burr in the lead over Elaine Marshall, this is a very crucial time for Marshall to use some political issues in her advantage as well as it is for Burr to maintain his lead. There were a lot of differences on topics between both of these candidates.
The resource that I used in finding topics that both of these candidates disagreed on was Project Vote Smart. Project Vote Smart is an historic undertaking. It’s where citizens come together, not in a selfish way of interest or to support one candidate over another, but to defend democracy. It gives you access to information on certain topics surrounding our world. Even if one candidate suffers grave attacks from opposing candidates and political parties, many are not willing to manipulate information and deceive voters.
Here are the results from both parties using the Project Vote Smart. Keep in mind that while Burr filled one out and Marshall did not. Marshall’s results are based on a infer answer meaning based on public statements, voting record, and evaluations based on special interest groups.
On abortion issues of whether you were pro-choice or pro-life, Marshall’s inferred answer was pro-choice while Burr’s answer was pro-life. Burr then states, “I oppose abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is threatened. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund abortions.”
On the topic of Budget, Spending, and Tax issues both candidates were given the question. Do you support using government funds in an effort to stimulate and improve the economy? Marshall’s inferred answer was yes, while Burr answered no. Another disagreement from Burr and Marshall was on the topic of Immigration when this question was asked. Do you support a pathway…...

Political Views - Mock Election

... Presidential Speech Hello, My name is Lukas Gorn I am running as Democratic candidate for the position of United States of America's President. As a running candidate, I believe there are five important topics in our society that I would like to focus on. Those topics are: sexual orientation, immigration, abortion, defense, and poverty. Sexual orientation is very discussed topic in our society. People say being gay is immoral and that homosexuals should not get the same rights as heterosexuals would, but I disagree with that statement. Homosexuals are people, and our constitution guarantees civil rights to anybody in our society. Now what those rights may include are up for interpretation; my interpretation is that everybody is a human being and that everybody has the right to do what they please. When it comes to same sex marriage, I am very supportive of this right, but I also believe it is up to the state to decide to practice it. A federal law should be in place where all states must recognize a same sex marriage so couples can get the same rights wherever they may reside. Millions of people venture into our country every year, legally and illegally. We have so many aliens due to our country having so many opportunities for them to succeed and while our country is on top I do not see why should not give a helping hand to those who need it. Our country has a long and rich heritage of immigration and we should not forget this. We need to bring the 11 million......

Arguments Between Two Philosophers

...Arguments between Two Philosophers Let us set ground rules for this debate. First knowledge is real. Second what we experience with our senses are real. Both are fixed and unchanging Correct A. Then there is the issue that both cannot be true. P. Correct A. Then disproving these theories is what must be done. P. Correct A. Knowledge is real because we learn from knowledge P. What we experience with our senses must be real because we can see, taste or, feel it. A. For this debate we must pick a form to represent both our sides, a chair will do. P. I agree A. Knowledge from form is what we learn about the usefulness of the chair. P We know what the chair is for because deduction and senses tell us to use the chair for sitting correct. A. Correct P. Then there is no knowledge needed because the form dictates what it is used for. A. The chair is never changing and knowledge of this helps us realize what the form is for P. Agreed A. If this is the case then the need for senses is not valid, because we use the knowledge of sitting to determine that the chair is real. P. I disagree. The only way to know that we use the chair to sit in is by the senses. Look at it this way if we could not see the chair then is it a chair, we have to feel the form to verify it is a chair and we need to sit in it. A. Your point is valid but there is not a need to see the chair, we only need the knowledge that the chair is in the......

The View of War Between William Faulkner's "Two Soldiers" and E.E. Cummings "My Sweet Old Etcetera"

...The View of War between William Faulkner’s “Two Soldiers” and E.E. Cummings’ “my sweet old etcetera” William Faulkner’s “Two Soldiers” and E.E. Cummings’ “my sweet old etcetera” are both written about the emotions involved during a war. “Two Soldiers” is about a person watching their loved one going to war and ‘my sweet old etcetera” is about a person who is on the front lines. While each story is a reflection on war, Faulkner’s is about the despair you feel in the trenches and Cummings is about the despair you feel while you watch someone go to the trenches. William Faulkner’s story “Two Soldiers” is a heart wrenching one about a little boy age eight watching his brother, Pete, go off to war for the first time. The story is told from the little brother’s point of view and we never learn of his name. The brothers are from a small town in Mississippi when they first hear on the radio about the bombings in Pearl Harbor. You can tell in the story that the mood of Pete changes with each radio broadcast. The little brother gets more and more concerned with what is bothering Pete. Pete does not want to talk about it. Pete tells his little brother that he has to go help out with the war. The little brother decides that he will go with him. Pete tries to explain to the little brother that he is too small to go to war. The little brother replies with, “I’ll chop the wood and tote the water for you-all then!” (289). He doesn’t quite understand why he cannot go with Pete...

Political Views

...There have been no time where we as a Filipino have not kept our promise in time or words being 2 or 3 hours late and blaming the traffic not ourselves. Even new found friends will ask to 'borrow' money without the slightest hesitation (a request to send money by Western Union into the province was not uncommon!) Only few politicians or even those in the higher social standing to the average citizen will sugar coat and not ever keep his word a broken word is like a gust of passing wind. Every businessman dealing with a foreign partner expects the partner to provide all just to sit and wait for the big pay-check to come through. 3. Political - one summary word: Make-believe. Everybody in politics is there with a private agenda. Nobody cares for the country because of 1 & 2 above. Lip service is plenty simply because talk is cheap!

Two Views of Totalitarianism

...Two Views of Totalitarianism George Orwell’s 1984 and James McTeigue’s “V for Vendetta” are very similar, but have some distinct differences in the plot. “V for Vendetta”, a futuristic version of a totalitarian government is taken over and destroyed by a masked man named V. Orwell’s 1984 is similar in this respect except that Winston, the protagonist of 1984, doesn’t seem to be as successful as V. Orwell was one to speak of how he sees the battle to be. Orwell has written several novels on the idea of revolutions against a superior government; one example would be 1984. He has inspired others to write there ideas on the thought of the future revolution from a dictatorship of extreme power. The film V for Vendetta is one example of an Orwell inspired story. In both Orwell's novel 1984 and the film V for Vendetta the protagonists Winston Smith and V live in similar difficult lives with extreme and controlling governments where they try to fight against there governments for the greater cause of freedom. There are many similar events and people in these two pieces of literature. In 1984, propaganda is broadcasted via telescreens. Similar to this, false news is broadcasted throughout the city of Oceania in 1984 by way of televisions. Both scenes have posters. 1984 has the posters with the phrase “BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU” similar to “STRENGTH THROUGH UNITY, UNITY THROUGH FAITH” in “V for Vendetta”.1984’s Winston and “V for Vendetta’s” Evey both experience the loss of......

Between Two Slices of Bread

...Rudy Sandoval English 1301 Ms. Gerl November 2, 2012 Between Two Slices of Bread Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are by far the best sandwiches in the history of food. However, many people ask what it that makes this sandwich so delicious? Many argue that it’s the creaminess of the peanut butter. Others would argue that it is the sweetness and fruity flavor of the jelly. One thing is certain; without each other peanut butter and jelly would not be the success they are today. Peanut butter comes in many different varieties. From chunky, crunchy, smooth, spreadable, and just regular old peanut butter, almost everyone enjoys the taste of peanut butter (except those who are allergic to peanuts of course). The greatest thing about this delicacy is how it goes well on nearly everything. Peanut butter and apples, peanut butter and bananas and peanut butter with celery, the combinations are delectable and endless. Peanut butter is not only a yummy treat, it is also great for one’s health. It is full of vitamins and proteins which are great for hair skin and nails. It is also packed with essential vitamins and has been shown to help lose weight. However, this nutty spread would be nothing without its sweet counterpart known as jelly. Jam, jelly, or preserves whatever the preferred name is one thing is certain, it is a sweet, gelatinous paste that some claim is the best part of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Unlike peanut butter, jam does not possess the same amount......

"Two Kinds" Point of View

...The short story, “Two Kinds”, written by Amy Tan, is written from the point of view of the character named Jing-Mei. There are three experiences which demonstrate her viewpoint. In the first experience, Jing-Mei is being told by her mom about the “American dream”. At first, she strives to pursue this prodigy. Her mom would test her every night after dinner. Through Jing-Mei’s eyes, she starts to realize that it was not the life she wanted to live. Lines in the story illustrate this when he says “I won’t let her change me, I promised myself. I won’t be what I’m not.” (p.406). In the second experience, Jing-Mei performs in a talent show. Her mother forced her to learn how to play the piano. After seeing a little girl playing the piano magnificently, her mother was inspired to make Jing-Mei become a famous pianist. Through her eyes, she was not really concerned about playing well and didn’t practiced efficiently. As a result, when she played her piece at the talent show, she fumbled on some notes. As it suddenly became a snowball effect. At this point, Jing-Mei felt ashamed of herself and was not satisfied with how her performance went. Indeed, we see this exact thought in the lines of the story when she states, “my whole face quivering as I tried not to cry” (p.410). In the third experience, we see Jing-Mei at home about two days after the talent show. After her mom kept reminding her about her usual four o’clock lesson, Jing-Mei replies that she was not going to play the piano...

Two View Points of Work

...Part 1 I quit my job of two and a half years, three months ago. I couldn’t handle being around my employees or bosses any longer. One employee in particular was constantly bashing on all of her fellow employees to get herself to the top of the “food chain.” Her strategy worked. Eventually she became the manager of all four boutiques. I was always one of the favorites according to my employees and my bosses. After some time had passed things began to change. I quit my job because started to see people for who they truly were. When I first began working at this boutique I fell in love with my job. I enjoyed working with the public, and got very close to the other employees. I was on cloud nine until I was close to a year of employment at this boutique. My bosses were two sisters who lived locally. They made friends with their employees. They took me out to eat, and out for drinks on my days off. Although they were immensely older than I, and not to mention they were my bosses, they felt more like friends rather than my bosses. I was one of the lucky few to admit that I loved what I did. After a year of working at this boutique things changed. One of the employees was bad mouthing me and other fellow employees. The owners believed her, as she was higher in the company. I was never asked my side of stories that were being told. I went months without any contact to my bosses. I never knew why they were mad at me. Finally I got up the courage to write them an......

Two Views on Hijab

...Two views on Hijab Hijab: that is, wearing a headscarf as a sign of modesty, a common (but not required) act among Muslim women. What do women who observe hijab really think about hijab in America? This essay will compare two women’s views. The first woman, a blogger identified by the moniker Scarf Ace, expresses her personal struggles with hijab in a blog post titled “Miss or Diss?” The second woman, Fatemah Fakhraie, is a Muslim-American activist for the rights of women. Her article “Scarfing it Down,” originally published in Bitch magazine--a feminist news publication--examines hijab bans and the way they effect Muslim women’s rights. While both women participate in hijab, their opinions differ on the view society takes: One woman wishes that society would accept her choice to observe hijab, the other demands it. Scarf Ace speaks out about her decision to start hijab. She begins by stating the difficulties with wearing the headscarf: it’s hot, people look at her, she can’t have a ‘good hair day’, etc. She continues because of her “husband’s high regard for hijab” and because, as a stay-at-home mother, she can choose when to leave the house, thus not having to wear it constantly (488). Her blog is an outlet for dealing with her decision to start hijab; she has very mixed emotions about it, and she wants people to hear her voice – she wants her decision to be understood......

Comparison and Contrast Between Two Political Thinkers: Thomas Hobbes and John Locke

...Assignment ON Comparison and Contrast Between Two Political Thinkers: Thomas Hobbes and John Locke Abstract The Social Contract theory which dominated the European political thought in the eighteen century has played a very important part in the development of the modern political theory and practice. Being the most important of all the speculative theories, it came into being as a result of reaction against the theory of the Divine Origin. This theory was the first to denounce the influence of the church in the state affairs, provided an explanation for the origin of the state and shows the relationship between those who governs and those who are governed. Thomas Hobbes and John Locke are the chief exponents of the Contract Theory. Both of them have established their thesis from the beginning of human habitation, though their ideas and opinions are quite distinct. Hobbes in his theory has only described one contract where Locke has described two. Thomas Hobbes’ “Leviathan” and John Locke’s “Two Treaties on Civil Government” these books are considered as bibles in the evolution of modern states system. Though there are criticisms and debates regarding the social contract theory, but the modern political theories today have evolved from these contract theories which has no doubt. The aim of this assignment is to compare and contrast between Thomas Hobbes and John Locke and explore their contribution in the development of international relations according to the......

Living Between Two Cultures

...Living between Two Cultures It has been almost nine years since I arrived from Mexico to the United States. Integrating these two unique cultures has been a wonderful experience. For immigrants in the United States culture differences can be difficult and complicate. Assimilating two separate cultures is an ongoing challenge. In this essay, I will describe the issues many immigrants face in regards to diversity, stereotyping, preserving self identity and personal values. America is nation that is populated with a culturally diverse group of people. The United States has welcomed more immigrants than any other country. The steady stream of people coming to America has had a profound effect on the evolution of American society. America is known as the land of the free and people from all over the world are attracted by promise of opportunity and success. It is not easy for those who move to the United States from other countries. It takes a lot of courage and sacrifice to leave your homeland and come to a new country, but the prospect of a better life makes the risk worth taking. Immigrants who come to America enrich the country by bringing aspects of their native cultures with them. For example, Hispanic Americans celebrate their culture with street fairs and other festivities on Cinco de Mayo. Other cultures, such as African Americans celebrate both Kwanzaa, a festival drawn from African rituals. As the population of the United States becomes more diverse its people......
