Immigration is a really tough issue. Some immigrants come to this country
illegally, which shouldn't be news to any of us, but what should we do with this
mass crowd of people, that are using our public school system and earning money
and not paying taxes? Some say we should just round them all up and deport them,
but is that really logical? I believe we should grant amnesty to all illegal
immigrants, and tell them to go to there local post office and register, and
start paying taxes, and send them to classes to learn our language, English!
That's one more thing that bothers me, Immigrants from every other region of the
world learn our language, you can not move to a country and expect them to
Many people have
questioned our involvement in Iraq. They often wonder why we went into Iraq and
why we are still there. I'll try to explain this in the simplest terms as I can.
On September 11, 2001, the world changed forever. A Global War on terror began.
One after another the countries of the world lined up with the United States.
Most did so without evident hesitation, a few because President Bush made it so
clear, in his speech to Congress on September 20, that the U.S. expected their
support: “Every nation in every region now has a decision to make: Either you
are with us or you are with the terrorists.” Ultimately, only Iraq offered
sympathy to the terrorists; no other government would take their side. On March
17, 2003 President Bush gave Iraqi Pres. Saddam Hussein and his family 48 hours
to leave the country so that all UN weapons-disarmament decrees could be fully
enforced. Saddam Hussein doubted our might, and ignored the ultimatum. Two days
later, with no explicit UN approval, the U.S. began launching Tomahawk missile
strikes on suspected Iraqi leadership sites. Coalition troops began crossing the
Iraqi border from Kuwait on March 20. After his capture, Several Factions moved
into Iraq in an attempt to take over, The United States knows that we can not
just abandon the new Iraqi government, the country would erupt in civil war.
When we entered Iraq we vowed not to leave until a stable Democratically Iraqi
government was set up.
I don't really have
much to say about Gay Marriage, I think Religiously and lawfully Marriage is
classified as the mutual bonding of love between a man and a woman. I think
Marriage belongs to heterosexual couples, I think Homosexuals should just call
there union some thing else. Call it a "union" and i think that would settle the
dispute. Gays can get "united," While straight couples can get married.
There are two sides
of the Abortion arguement: Pro-life, the idea that abortion should not be an
option given to pregnant women, and Pro-choice, the idea that a woman has the
right to do whatever she wants to her own body. I am in the middle. Think of the
classic example of the girl who gets raped and gets pregnant. Should she have
the oppurtunity to get an abortion? Absolutely. And at the other side there is
the Girl who makes no effort at any type of birth control and her Boyfriend gets
her pregnant. Should she have the right to kill off her unborn baby? I'm going
to say no. Sadly, you cannot offer abortion to some and not all, and for that
rape victim i think it should be available.
