In the words of Ronald Reagan, one of the most respected US Presidents: “Republicans believe that every day is the fourth of July, but the democrats believe that every day is April 15”. This statement made by him implies that he believes that Republican conservatives believe that every day is the 4th of July which is the celebration of our independence, and Democrats believe that every day is tax day, which is a day where the government can come and seize your property. On that note, I am arguing the fact that we need a republican president to serve the next term. This topic is important because it shows the kind of image that the next president should portray and the mark he or she should leave for the next generation. Our last president …show more content…
They do not ignore facts if it is going to hurt someone 's feelings. Some might disagree with this matter and say that it is not right to say anything or take an action that can hurt the relations with that one country, person, etc. Bernie Sanders also said this when he was asked on his thoughts about the Iran Nuclear deal, “ The test of a great nation is not how many wars it can engage in, but how it can resolve international conflicts in a peaceful manner.” However, this does not always work out that great. One example is the incident with Putin taking over Crimea, a section of Ukraine. When Obama heard about Putin’s plans to take over Crimea, he took no action and in fact advised that America’s partner in NATO (Ukraine) take no military action against the matter.

Our current president made a mistake in this situation. He should not have told Ukraine to stand down against Russia.

Two of those issues is abortion and the black lives matter movement. The Democratic nominees supported the black lives matter movement and were pro-choice when it comes to abortion, and the Republican candidates were against the movement and were pro-life. Liberals might disagree with the Republicans’ choices and say that the Black Lives movement is helping us move forward and that the choice if someone wants to keep a baby is more important than life itself. They are obviously wrong in both of these perspectives. First off the protesting in the Black Lives matter movement is the complete opposite of peaceful. People are getting angry at officers just doing their job and having to protect their community. The movement is supposed to spread a positive message about how everybody is equal, rioting and burning down buildings is no way to do that. According to the Washington Post from mid-April 2015 to mid-May 2015 there were 31 deaths and 39 wounded by gunfire thanks to these rioters in the streets of Baltimore. This is not an okay example to handle issues that are happening in your neighborhood. Meanwhile, the pro-life decision that the Republican candidates made on abortion is the right one. Since the Roe v Wade court decision in 1973 where abortion was completely legalized, about 55 million lives have been claimed. 55 million children that had the
