Why America Was A Success Essay

Good Essays
Success- the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. What a funny word to describe America. Sure every country has its ups and downs but look at America lately. Sure we are successful at helping other countries and providing aid to those third world countries but look at what is happening in America, drugs have plagued this nation, poverty has flooded the streets, and unemployment is destroying families. But no need to worry, we can go get welfare and have the government pay for our drugs, alcohol, and strippers. Our country is very successful in a lot of things though! We want extremists to run our country, we are number one in the world with debt, and think the best thing to do is worry about what other countries needs are before we help the poor and starving …show more content…
Look at how beautiful the planet is! Want to go swimming in the river? Let me just move all this trash! We are destroying the planet. There is trash everywhere, we have put a hole in the atmosphere, and astronauts in space say the planet looks sick. But not to worry we will just produce clean energy devices in pollution casing factories! Ours was a success. We successfully gained our independence from Britain and started a brand new nation. We rose to the top from nothing and were once at the top and nothing came close to how great we were. We came together as a nation when we sent troops overseas to fight for others freedom and survival. We trudged through the great depression and came out with a smile. We saved so many lives in WWI and WWII by building the second largest fighting force in the world! We did all of this by pulling together, forgetting our differences, and going for something that actually mattered. Then we went to Vietnam. We went to end tyranny and stop communism. Our troops came home, from a war they were drafted into, called baby killers, monsters and any other horrible name they could think of. No thank you or any sort of

    The US has changed the way the world interacts by globalizing commerce, social media, and by foreign policies. After the attacks of 911, US citizens took notice of the implications of having such relax immigration laws. Having a “blanket” opinion that all illegal immigrants are terrorists or a burden to our economy is an inaccurate one. Taxes paid by immigrants and their children, both legal and unauthorized, exceeds the costs of the services they use.

    He states, “The world war that reached its brutal end in Hiroshima and Nagasaki was fought among the wealthiest and most powerful of nations” (Obama 2016). By introducing this statement, Obama acknowledges the economic differences and inequalities that are apparent on an international scale. If the countries that are at war are economically prosperous, it is very likely that the effects of the war will be severely detrimental to many actors involved. This is apparent as wealthy countries have spending that is directly put towards military enhancement, weaponry, and so on. The fact that the USA in World War II was a wealthy state was what enabled nuclear weapons to be built and collected.…

    Sputnik had spurred on an age of innovation never been seen since in the history of humanity. Sputnik itself was nothing particularly innovative; it was just a little more augmented than the size of a basketball and weighed only 184 pounds. The first satellite was carried into space by an R-7 rocket. Its purpose was simple: emit a constant “beeping” by using a single radio transmitter which could track the object in space (The launch of Sputnik). It was highly polished so it was seen by the naked eye.…

    But despite the efforts of some people, like JBF and Aïda, the human race survived. When the scientific community found that the world would be destroyed, they did not give up. They created a massive and seemingly impossible project to build a space ark to save the human race. Without the efforts of scientists and even general people who did not give up, humans and all of life would be extinct. One extremely vital point in the life of the Cloud Ark was when Dinah and a couple of colleagues set out to retrieve water from a comet passing by.…

    The brilliant minds employed in these careers have changed history because of their collaboration with one another. While space exploration has infinite benefits for humanity, some of which we have not yet discovered, it does have its imperfections and risks. During training for the Apollo 1 mission, three astronauts lost their lives. The cause of death was a fire that broke out in the astronaut training capsule. Additionally, a defective O-ring on a rocket that was carrying the Shuttle Challenger caused an explosion during takeoff that ended the lives of seven astronauts.…

    However, if you think about it, not only will that cost billions of dollars, but who has built the foundation of America? Illegal immigrants. Although there are those criminal immigrants who gave a bad reputation to the Mexicans, most of them actually helped our economy grow. If we completely kick them out, our economy will greatly decrease and put us in an even deeper dept. Sanders will enforce border control, but he will also give fair help and support to those immigrants who managed to cross to the U.S..…
