  • Budget For Terrorism - 1,558 words
    Budget For Terrorism Budgeting Against Terrorism This year's budget will be required to address the new and dangerous reality of terrorism on the US home front. Over the next 5 years $50 billion dollars has been allotted to plans that are specifically geared to dealing with terrorism. In my belief in is important to separate the budget into two different categories of counter-terrorism. The first category allocates money in response to the attacks of September 11th. This money will contribute to programs that offer monetary assistance to both those directly affected by the attacks and those suffering from the negative economic impact of the attack. Approximately $30 billion dollars will be a ...

  • Difference Between Judicial Activism And Judicial Restraint - 831 words
    Difference Between Judicial Activism And Judicial Restraint Our American judiciary branch of the federal government has contributed and molded our American beliefs in this great nation. This branch of government is respected because of the code of conduct that the judges, no matter how conservative or liberal. The language of the court as well as the uniform of the cloaks that judges wear has most probably contributed towards this widespread respect. Throughout the history of the United States, I noticed a pattern of "cause and effect" that our judiciary branch had practiced. I noticed that the judicial branch usually restrain themselves from involving in critical civil policy, but will be a ...

  • Federalism Poverty - 1,974 words
    Federalism & Poverty Many Americans believe that the federal government is too big, both in the number of agencies it directs and in the scope of its powers. Some people also think that the daily business of Capitol Hill has no effect on their lives, in part because they believe that politicians do not understand their problems. This dissatisfaction with Washington, D.C., in recent years has renewed debate over the division of power between federal and state and local governments. Federalism - the sharing of power between the states and the national government - has been a major issue throughout U.S. history. Thomas R.

  • Gun Control - 1,344 words
    GUN CONTROL BY I do not believe any one of us would want just anyone to be able to buy any kind of weapon they want. What I do believe is the issue at hand is not gun control but crime.

David Newton, of New Jersey reviles. "In 1994, 18,954 Americans were murdered. Of that number, 11,832 or 62 percent were killed by guns. On the average, one man, woman, or child is killed or wounded by a gun every 2.5 minutes in the United States" (Newton 7). Many Americans are disgusted by these statistics.

  • Impeachment - 1,487 words
    Impeachment War, or even the threat of it, has always seemed to give the president more power. In times of war Americans often readily give more power to the president, but once the crisis is over the public then becomes concerned with whether they have created an office that has become imperial. The office of the president has become increasingly more powerful over the last 50-60 years. Even though the power to declare war and send US troops into war belonged to Congress there have many presidents who have chosen to disregard that point and enter our country into war.

  • Incarcerating A Generation - 1,940 words
    Incarcerating A Generation Incarceration of a People The disproportionate numbers of African Americans in the prison system is a very serious issue, which is not usually discussed in its totality.

It would be nave to say that the increase is due to the fact that more African Americans are committing crimes now than before.
