Analysis Of Donald Trump Vs. American Democracy

Good Essays
While we all choose to believe what we believe, a social divide should not come in between our unity because of our political standings. The 2016 election has created a bigger divergence than pretty much any election in history. Candidates that ran in this years election were the cause of some huge disputes among the American people. We should be fighting for peace, not creating conflict due to the fact that we will at no time agree on a single form of government. So why have we become so distant and how can we make sure to try and change the social standing? We can start by not making it seem like others are so wrong for freely stating their opinions and start listening. And instead of arguing we can agree to disagree. Peace is a main factor …show more content…
Its in fact hypocritical, in an article on the New York Times website “Donald Trump vs. American Democracy” reads “...He needs a reason so that his self-inflated self-image as a relentless winner is not undone should he lose this election by embarrassing margins. But to take that need for a diversion and distraction and turn it toward questioning the integrity of the electoral process itself and leaving open the possibility of not conceding should he lose beyond the pale.” And after the election what did Democrats protest... the electoral college saying that they wanted it dead and buried. And that since Hillary acquired the popular vote she should be President-Elect. Only due to the fact that they didn 't get the result that they wanted. This Democrat obviously rued the day he declared and gave voice to these words after the results of the election came out or maybe he proceeded to be an unreasonable person and kept making America unpleasant, either way this is an example of how even though we all know where we should be and are striving to be joint as a Nation, we

    Michael Obama once said, “ When they go low you go high.” In this 2016 election it feels like we all are going low and just waiting to see who is going to go high and win this presidential election. This election has become weird and bizarre for the fact that candidates Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump tend to push each other buttons to confess things and call each other liars. They both have their own opinion and idea on how they will make society a better place for all of us , but both individuals have their own ways on making changes. In reality who is telling the truth? Which candidate will actually keep their word and make America great?…

    The slogan that propelled Donald Trump into his influence across the nation, “make America great again,” shows that Trump sees America has fallen downhill and has hopes to improve it. Trump wants to see this country go back to the prosperous country it once was, but he does not know how to filter his words according to most, which makes him seem frightening. Despite Clinton’s accusation about the risk of Donald Trump, his clever use of scare tactics gives voters a sense of security because of his ideas concerning immigration and terrorism. According to Molly Ball, author of “Donald Trump and the Politics of Fear,” Donald Trump uses fear to his advantage in hopes of winning the presidential election. Today, people in the US are frightened of…

    With the recent election, were you unable to relate to either of the presidential candidates? Most American citizens wished that there was another candidate, capable of winning, running because both candidates were so extreme. This dilemma occurred because of the two-party system, which runs the United States. If the United States was run by a multi-party system or a system by which no parties were present then there would be a very low chance that Donald Trump would be president due to how intensely the people dislike him. With a recent poll, about 14% of America thinks that the federal government works.…

    I strongly believe that the Electoral College should be abolished due to the fact that it extracts the freedom to vote away. If we, as United States citizens, are able to vote, then we should also be able to select the person who will run our country. The Electoral College system removes that power away from citizens, which leads to great controversy among individuals. Originally, the founding fathers placed the Electoral College in the Constitution, because they assumed that the general population wouldn’t have enough sufficient data to make a knowledgeable selection on who would be the best nominee for presidency, but now with the expansion in newspapers, t.v. and social media, the people have the power to get data on almost anything at an instant.…

    For example, if the democrats were to gain the majority in the house or senate, I would find it hard to imagine that someone with the rhetoric of Donald Trump would attempt to be bipartisan. Meaning the legislation would be killed in whichever house the Democrats have majority in. The best way to make America great again is not to build a wall on the southern border, but to elect a president that will reach across the isle and get things accomplished in…

    He cannot just wait for other things to happen. As president he must speak softly and be willing to use the big stick if need be, and let history be the judge of his actions. Through Mills philosophical concept of utility, Trump will need to think on the utility of the United States first, and the rest of the world second. Based on the philosophers we learned about in class, Trump would not follow the ideas of John Rawls. Being a politician and also being a leader, Trump won’t be able to be fair.…

    For example the author says, “ … Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation.” this phrase expresses how people concern about the government. In contrast, Michael Brown did not use concrete language, for example: “[Trump] help me feel more confident” I wonder confident about what? If Trump is provoking a racial division that in the end would increase the social problems and discrimination. Also, he mentions, “...God will uses [Trump] for good, not for evil.” so, if Trump become president, is God responsible for Trump’s actions? Furthermore, the article “ Donald Trump for President” did not use narrative to explain the author’s decision.…

    President Obama nominated a candidate to fill his seat, but the Republican Senate did not confirm his nomination because they did not want another liberal judge to replace Scalia, and decided to wait until the newly elected President to make the nomination. Filling the vacant spot on the court is incredibly influential because “just one vacancy and appointment can switch the court from 5-4 on an issue (or many issues) to 5-4 the other way” (Reynolds). The result of the election and the dominating political party on the court plays a pivotal role in the direction of the Supreme Court. The current method of selecting justices even took away from the purpose of a presidential election. For…
