As democracy is fundamental to American government, the right to vote is fundamental to democracy. Voter ID laws were introduced in 2003 to try to protect voter integrity and to both defend against and detect fraud. Currently, 30 states require some form of ID in order to vote.
Tomorrow, Turkish legislators will vote on the issues surrounding Isis in the neighboring countries of Syria and Iraq. Isis has proved to be a potential threat to Turkey which is currently involved in the anti-Isis coalition, and is debating sending troops into Syria. After the Turkish prime minister presented the idea it is inferred that the motion most likely will not pass. If it does however it will allow for foreign troops to pass through Turkey in an effort to stop Isis, and for a safety zone 20 miles inside of the Syrian border which could be a huge push in stopping war.
Recently I have heard several people talking about Scotland's vote for independence but I didn't know much about it so I decided to look it up. I found that the Scottish government has decided that now is time for Scotland to take is future into its own hands (http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/09/world/europe/scottish-referendum-explainer...). I also found that Scotland choice would not only affect Scotland but other things as well, specifically the economy in the UK.
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.
I think Romney is disgusting because the thing that he want to do with the poor people that he want to give health care to the people and he don't to help the poor people he said that he are going to help the rich people he is dumb because the rich people have money, and the poor don't how he going to help rich people, and he said that he is going to permit the abortion that would be good and that will be bad too because what happen what happen is that women was rape she will be still growing that kid that was cause of raping and she is to hate that kid because she is to remember the face of
With the election coming up quickly, there has been a lot of talk of politics. I will be 18 before the election so I have been more interested than past years. I know a lot of our views come from what our parents believe but I also think that our friends and acquaintances can influence our decisions.
Recently, I took a survey asking me about what my ideal candidate would do concerning the most debated political topics. These topics included abortion, marijuana legalization, deficit spending, taxes, and other important issues that our country faces.
My question is, does our vote really matter?
Although I missed the voting deadline by a few months due to age and cannot vote, would it matter if I could? I know plenty of kids around the 18 year old range who are eager to vote for their candidate, but I wonder if all the anticipation and worry will be worth it.
I just completed a survey that asked me some questions about my political views. After answering 25 questions about issues in the 2012 election, the survey told me that I am most likely to support Joe Biden. I think that this is accurate because I really agree with almost all of Biden's views. I especially agree with the point of view that there should be more control on gun ownership. Guns have caused death in my family and I really do not see the point of having to have a gun in your house or with you at all times.
SO WHAT ! what people got to understand is that Obama is making change already it’s that everything takes time , but people don’t get to realize that because they are type selfish I think. Just because Mitt Romney wants to lower taxes does not mean anything like Obama had a chance to do that but instead he decided to help the lower class people by starting Obama care which benefited a lot of homeless people. I wonder If Mitt Romney becomes the president of the united states will there still be a such thing of Obama Care?
In a recent survey on Vote Smart, I was asked if I supported restrictions on the purchase and possession of guns. My answer was yes because I feel that having guns available to everyone is dangerous for society and the person who owns the gun. Although I do realize that guns can be used for safety, the greater risk is the misuse of a gun that could lead to a fatal accident.
