Oh hi there, here is the Movie Destroyer. Yes, I'm back.
Recently I'm feeling that I'm becoming more political because apparently, the election is right behind the corner and I, someone who doesn't meet the voting requirement, is sitting in front of my computer, and trying to pull something out from all the voices from the political domain and just, standing in a middle ground, give you all something about my view on the election.
Note: I'm not a Trump supporter nor a Hillary supporter.
Also, the Movie Destroyer rule #1:
First off, I do NOT support Donald Trump. I think his actions and his plans for the "new America" is completely ignorant, and ignores the foundation of our country as a whole. This thread is mainly to raise arguments about the true reasons of Donald Trump's success so far in the Republican party.
I have been thinking a lot recently about the election coming up this November. Most people that I have talked to have agreed that all of the mainstream candidates are not really suited for the white house in one way or another. The odd thing I notice is that people see these as their only options, when in reality there are many other people that they could choose. If one of these lesser known candidates made a big push with ideas that aren't bad or crazy they would have a possibility of actually getting enough votes to make office.
It is very hard to map out who will be republican candidate of 2016. I believe the candidate to win will be Donald Trump. Although he seems very childish, he has the most popularity. He is an active participant in social media. Social Media is a new way to reach out to people, even when considering politics.
He is # 1 when it comes to the Iowa and N.H. polls. He is also # 1 when it comes to market predictions. Although he raised the least money, Donald Trump is very wealthy and does not require this. Unfortunately, Donald Trump has a big chance of being the republican nominee.
I believe Bernie Sanders will be the democratic candidate of the 2016 presidential election. Martin O’malley is obviously out of the election, he is very unpopular compared to Sanders and Clinton. The question is whether Sanders or Clinton will be candidate.
I evaluated the claim that Ben Carson is the new front runner from the article “Who is Ben Carson?” on the Atlantic. I must declare a bias before continuing this argument. I am a supporter of Dr. Carson and that may have colored the way I thought about the piece. I agreed with the central claim as I also think he is the new front runner.
You won the election, so society must really like you.Even though this may be true, i need to know that i can trust you. Looks can be deciding and there is more than meets the eye.So i am asking in your smallest ways to care about my opinion.And not only my opinion counts, everybody's does, so do not do things to benefit yourself to it so we can benefit.
In this photo, people were celebrating the election of Mohamed Morsi. I chose this photo as the best photo because I know they fought against a dictator on May 2011. But now, they have liberty. When I saw this photo I felt, it was a pretty moved scene. Also they were look like happy-looking for the election.
With massive national security issues coming to rise in places like Libya and Egypt, it is unfortunate to say that the national security issue that most newspapers are focused on has been the Petraeus scandal. While I can see how this situation could weaken the security of America, I am much more fearful of the uprisings in Egypt and the embassy burning in Libya.
The President has not wasted any time since his re-election Tuesday night. On Friday, he called on Congress to “reduce the [$1.1 trillion] deficit in a balanced and responsible way.” A hot topic in the President’s campaign was his plan to reduce the federal deficit by increasing taxes on the wealthy; namely, those with a household income greater than $250,000. It seems that the President still intends to put these tax raises in place.
Obama has won the his re-election, with his re-election, President Obama will push on the nation's environment and energy agenda. Voters were supporting an eco-minded candidate to ban the fracking for natural gas in Colorado. Hopefully, with President Obama's re-election the energy and environment will largely continue in an upward direction.
I previously discussed the discordant political topic of abortion, looking at both candidates viewpoints on the issue. But now that the election is over and President Obama has been re-elected, will the seemingly interminable debate come to an end as well. There has been talk that the dispute of abortion is far from over. Anti-abortion activists are looking for a new approach to the issue.
With the reelection of President Barack Obama came a victory for women and a message that Americans do not want political figures controlling what people decide to do medically with their bodies. As we know, abortion is a major controversial topic among politicians. Obama promised to preserve federal funds for organizations such as Planned Parenthood to keep access to abortion open, while Romney made it clear that he wanted to make abortion illegal, except in cases of rape, incest, and when the mother’s life is at risk.
Abortion has always been a big issue in elections for as long as I can remember. It is a big issue because people have very strong opinions about it, and if it should be allowed or not. Personally, I believe it it the woman's right to be able to chose what she wants to do with her body. However, this does not mean that i think abortion is morally right in every case. For example, I do not believe that abortion should be used as a form of birth control. I do believe that there are areas where it shouldn't even be a question that it should be allowed, like rape.
The 2012 election has indicated that this is the year of the women. With more women in congress that ever before and a powerful women voting force, this definitely seems to be true. Many people ask why so many white males voted for Romney. But as John Cassidy says in his article “What’s Up With White Women? - They Voted for Romney Too”, white women voted for Romney 56 percent as compared to 42 percent for President Obama. This is surprising because Obama carried 55 percent of total women votes and carried the majority of black, hispanic and other non-white races.
With the recent election coming to close, I researched how racism towards Obama and other African Americans came to an all time high during this time. Last month professors Josh Pasek, Jon Krosnick and Trevor Thompson published a paper titled, "The Impact of Anti-Black Racism on Approval of Barack Obama's Job Performance and on Voting in the 2012 Presidential Election." It was based on three online surveys of about 1,000 Americans done in 2008, 2010, and 2012. It allowed these men to measure the existence of racism among those who call themselves Independent, Democrat, and Republican.
Many pro-choice advocates saw this most recent election as "a resounding victory for women." With the re-reinstatement of President Barack Obama groups such as Planned Parenthood and the National Organization for Women were able to keep their work! This election shows that the American people do not want politicians making medical decisions for us. With Obama back in as President he has required insurance companies to cover birth control, protect funding to Planned Parenthood, and allow access to abortion.
For my political issue I had chosen to photograph same sex issues. Romney and Obama have two completely different views on this situation. They talk about their reasons in the ways they support their choices.
Romney on same sex issues:
Romney is 100% against same sex marriage. He believes marriage has the definition of a man and a woman. He was asked if there was a difference between gay marriage and a civil union. He stated that he'd much rather have neither.
Mitt Romney and Barack Obama relatively agree on the United States' education; they both agree that online schooling will create better opportunities, endorse higher education, and both candidates promise to lower the cost of education. Yet they still disagree and have minor differences when it comes to education. For example, Obama endorses federal help on students while Romney does not. Romney said in an interview that Obama spends too much money on projects that are unnecessary.
The debate over gun control has been going on for years. Many say tighter restrictions would save lives. Others believe crime rates would go up, as well as a violation of the second amendment. Whichever side you are on, the outcome of either decision would have a huge impact on our country.
Abortion has become a hot topic ever since the famous case of Roe. v. Wade, where the supreme court ruled a state law unconstitutional that banned abortions except to save the life of the mother. Almost forty years later, questions regarding morality and constitutionality are still seen everywhere.
An issue that I find interesting during this election is equal pay for women. New reports have shown that women graduating from college/grad-school are worth less than men who have been educated equally. Today, most women earn about 82 cents to every dollar that a man earns. Why is this? If a women is educated in the same field as a man and is just as qualified as a man shouldn't she earn the same amount? NPR reports that one reason to this is because of gender discrimination.
There are many factors that can sway a person’s opinion on whether abortion should be legal or illegal. One factor is a persons family and their upbringing and religious views. Also, women are more likely to be affected by abortion if they are poor, and live in an undeveloped area. Although there are many opposing viewpoints when it comes to abortion, most people agree that it is alright if it affects the mother’s life.
One issue that I find very important is balancing the budget. Right now our government spends and borrows more money than it actually takes in, hence the budget deficit. This type of policy isn't sustainable and just passing the debt on to the next generation isn't the answer. This country needs to be budgeted like a business that wants to make a profit. If the economy is strong and not in extreme debt, then everyone is benefited. Another issue that is important to me is the future of energy. I think the U.S.
To be honest, I am not terribly concerned with politics. I understand that I should be, that the decisions politicians make huge effects on my life; however, I usually cannot bring myself to read newspaper articles or watch news about so-and-so's policy or proposals. It is in this aspect- the more fiscal aspect of politics that I am generally apathetic toward, but I do concern myself with the social aspects of it.
A few days ago I took a survey that will give the results on which presidential candidate is best for you. Almost 80 percent of my answers were in favor of MItt Romney. And only about 40 percent of my questions answered were in favor of Obama. And a small percentage of my beliefs were in favor of other 3rd parties . But only about 20 percent.
