    Presidential scandals affect the entire nation. While some are particularly worse than others, they can also help implement change in things that will make the nation grow stronger. For example, the election of 1876 with former president Rutherford B. Hayes helped the country understand how a president is elected into office and clarified the confusion between the importance of popular vote and electoral vote, which greatly impacted Washington D.C. However, there are other presidential scandals such as the Watergate Scandal in 1971 and the Iran-Contra Affair were peoples trust in the government diminished.

    supporters…The dark clouds of conspiracy never left the administration, and the disputed election severely weakened Adams” (Marquis 2008). Anytime there is not a clear winner of an election, the losing side will usually claim something unfair went on. That is really bad for the country and for the president elect because it hurts the amount of support he will receive. If there is a way to prevent confusion like in this election, it should be done. During the time from 1824 there have been to…

    Does it make sense for people to follow laws that were established more than a hundred years ago? The Texas Constitution of 1876, which is currently in use (Maxwell et al. 60), states in Article 4, section 23 that “the comptroller of public accounts, commissioner of the General Land Office, attorney general, and any statutory state officer who is elected statewide to reside at the state capital during their terms of office” (). In 2015 there was an amendment up for voting, Senate Joint…

    During 1876 I feel that Native Americans were considered “less equal” perhaps not in an overall sense but considering that the thirteenth through fifteenth amendments were nearing it seems as though legislation that was aimed at helping Native Americans would have to wait until the 20th century. Just a year after the one hundredth anniversary of the Dawes Severalty Act was instituted offering allotment to Native Americans, this act would take tribes who in many cases had already been relocated…

    Walking down the narrow streets of a village in China, dogs were scattered. The majority of them were homeless, roaming around in search of food and shelter. The sight urged me to adopt every single one, however it was impossible for me to adopt them on my vacation stay in China. This is only a chip of what animal mistreatment looks like in our society today. From animal experimentation to factory farms, the abuse can been hidden away from the eyes of our society (Clemmitt 3). However, with the…

    least, but the same cannot be said to the millions of animals that go through these horrendous experiences. Animal experimentation is something that in today’s times is an unnecessary and ineffective, outdated, unreliable, and immoral method that should be stopped from being used.

Both sides agree that animal experimentation is the reason why today we have learned much about the fundamentals of…
