Arnold Schwarzenegger is a very well-known man. He is known for the huge amount of films he have starred in, his professional bodybuilding and then Governor of California. In his speech from August 31, 2004, he was talking about America as a strong and independent country. He was supporting the current president, George W. Bush and the Republican Party very much. His speech involves encouragement to vote for Bush at the next election and to support him in his decisions. Schwarzenegger wants to give immigrants the same opportunities as he was given himself, since he himself is an immigrant too. Doing so by supporting the Republican Party. He is addressing the audience as “fellow Americans” and it seems that he is talking to the whole American population. But I fact, he is only talking to the Republican citizens and he is identifying different subgroups of his audience, like the immigrants, the strong Republicans and the people with only some Republican beliefs. By doing so, and identifying his audience, he is creating a feeling of pride in America. A feeling of pride that is there because of the fact that they are having a Republican for their president. Schwarzenegger uses lots of rhetoric methods and forms of appeal. The three forms of appeal – ethos, logos and pathos – is used a lot in this speech. Ethos is used to make the audience look at him as a trustworthy man. The more ethos you have, the more trustworthy, honest, qualified, well willing, committed and persistent you seem. He is using words like “freedom”, “fellow people” and “fellow Americans” and that is really raising some feelings in the audience, like love for the country and hope.
”We are the America that sends out the Peace Corps volunteers to teach our village children. We are the America that sends out the…...

Analysis Mitt Romney Speech

...Rhetorical analysis of Mitt Romney´s republican victory speech On the 7th November 2012 the presidential in America ended. Two candidates, one from each party, the Republican and the Democratic Party participated in the race. The results were as followed; Obama was re-elected for another 4 years in the White House. The participant from the Republican Party was the former governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney. Even though he didn´t win the election as he had hoped, his road to the top of the Republican Party is also very interesting to follow. For example the Super Tuesday Victory Speech he gave on March 6th 2012 after having won the Republican presidential candidacy on Super Tuesday. Perhaps if this speech had been different he would have been elected president in America? To look closer into this speech, will at first use the SOAPSTONE model to analyse it. The speaker of the text is of course the one delivering it, Mitt Romney. The speech where given as said before on Super Tuesday after having won the Republican presidential candidacy, which is the occasion for it. Especially the occasion is very important for Mitt Romney and his speech, since it will be showed on national television, where his audience most likely will be millions of republican voters, both those who supported him and those who didn´t. Which means that Romney will get the change to convince the republican voters, who supported other candidates in the run, to keep their vote republican in the......

New Convention

...Should There be Another Constitutional Convention? The Articles of Confederation was he first federal “constitution” to be upheld in the thirteen colonies. Unfortunately, under the Articles, Congress was given no power over the states so that the country could grow into an actual functioning society, though there were certain things that they did have control over, such as create war and peace time, conduct foreign affairs and etc. But under the Articles, “But Congress could not collect taxes and enforce laws directly; it had to rely on the states to provide money and enforce its laws. . .”(Dye 61). Essentially, the states did what they felt was right beneath their own respective state level government. “No respect is paid to the federal authority. Not a single state complies with the requisitions[submitted by Congress]” (Nardo 18). The Founding Fathers were disturbed by the utter discord the nation seemed to be in. Deciding that enough was enough in May of 1797, twelve of the thirteen colonies delegates, 55 delegates, gathered together in the State House of Philadelphia to, originally, fix and tweak the bugs out of the Articles of Confederation. But instead of fixing the Articles, James Madison decided that it would be better to scrap the whole document and create a whole new federal constitution. James Madison was intent on drafting a new constitution that would create a stronger, central government: The Virginia Plan. “. . . he by no means wanted that government to be......

Free Speech and National Security

...Free Speech and National Security Harlan D. Almon HSM 305 Instructor William Barker May 20, 2013 Free Speech and National Security We, as a nation, have prided ourselves as a country with many freedoms. Freedom of speech being probably the most important. It allows us to say or print what we are feeling about a subject and not have to worry about consequences. Although living in a society that allows free speech is great, it has its consequences as well when it comes to keeping our nation safe. During war time, there have been times that our freedom of speech has been curbed. One could say that freedom of speech could actually help professionals in the Homeland Security field. Because we are a country that allows freedom of speech, radical terrorist groups could be found and stopped before they could carry out their attack. This is possible because they can become a suspect through the web through chat rooms, Facebook or any social media that you can find on the internet this days. They can even start their own websites. This makes coming up with suspects easier for the DHS and other law enforcement individuals. They can spend more time trying to stop these individuals, instead of trying to find out who these individuals are. In the First Amendment, it states, “Congress shall make no law [. . .] Abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press [.]” (Howington, 2012) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Art. 19 says “Everyone has the right to freedom of......

Republican National Convention Address - Analysis

...Arnold Schwarzenegger’s speech: “Republican National Convention Address”, performed and written in 2004, is a powerful speech, where he speaks about the American Dream, which he have experienced, his horrible childhood plagued by communism and how grateful he is for being in such a meaningful position – in such a wonderful country, which he praises. The writer of the speech, Mike Murphy, has chosen to base the speech a lot on patriotism through the rhetorical mode pathos. It’s noteworthy that one of the first constructed sentences is heavily pathos-based, because Schwarzenegger speaks about the American Dream and compares it with him being able, as a scrawny boy from Austria, to become Governor of the State of California. That screams patriotism due to it being a trademark for America that anyone, from anywhere, can come to America, and live the so-called American Dream, and achieve success the spite of his or her present background. Schwarzenegger then continues on with praising America for its compassion and generosity, and he then compares the god-blessed country, with all the other world countries, which he supposedly all have visited, and claims that out of all of them, America is supreme. Not only does this give the citizens listening a heartwarming feeling, but they also think that: this man knows what he’s talking about, because he have been everywhere, which is done through ethos. Ethos is used properly once more, with a twist of logos, later in the text, when......

First Amendment: Freedom of Speech

...First Amendment Research Paper: Freedom of Speech During the time the Constitution was being written, freedom of speech was mainly focused on political speech. People wanted the opportunity to express their ideas and opinions about the government without being reprimanded or unheard. People feared that if the government was able to censor unfavorable viewpoints, they would eventually form a politically powerful population and oppress those who did not share the same mindset. Along with concerns about political speech, freedom of religious speech was a common desire. Previous incidents in English and Colonial history had occurred where certain religious views were prohibited and the people wanted to make sure that they were safe from the government’s restrictions. During his speech to the First Congress on June 8, 1789, James Madison proposed the Freedom of Speech idea to congress. He included several amendments that specifically addressed the concerns of Anti-Federalists that certain rights were not strongly protected by the Constitution. Madison said in his speech, “The people shall not be deprived or abridged of their right to speak, to write, or to publish their sentiments.” Congress agreed with this idea and it became part of the first amendment. Madison continued with, “No state shall violate the equal rights of conscience, or of the press.” Congress did not like this and thought that only the federal government should be prohibited from restricting certain rights,...

House Divided Speech

...A house divided speech by Abraham Lincoln In 1858 Abraham Lincoln was nominated as a candidate for the senate for the Republican Party in Illinois. This is a well-known speech. It took place as the end of the republicans state convention in the House of Representatives in Illinois. In the speech he makes it extremely clear who the supporters and opponents of slavery are. The background for the speech is the conflict between the Kansas-Nebraska law and the Supreme Courts decision in the Dred Scott case. The Kansas-Nebraska law allowed the states to decide whether they want to abolish slavery or not. The Supreme Court decided that the right of ownership of slaves should not be prevented in any state. A house divided is a speech by Abraham Lincoln. The speech took place in 1858. Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States. He is from the state Illinois. When the American Civil War took place abolishing slavery was not his primary target. It was to save the Union. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure; permanently half slave and half free. Lincoln does not think that the “house” can stand if it is divided. He does not believe that the government can endure to be half slave and half free. He does not believe the union to be dissolved, he does not want the union to fall, but he wishes that the union wont be divided. He is speaking to the gentlemen of the convention. The speech took place so he could get......

Security Planning for the 2004 Democratic National Convention Case Report

...SECURITY PLANNING FOR THE 2004 DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION CASE REPORT MSFM- Organizational Behavior January 6, 2014 Case Summary In November 2002 the Democratic National Committee selected Boston, Massachusetts to host its July 2004 convention. Boston had beaten out other larger cities which included New York, Miami and Detroit to win the convention. The convention would nominate local politician John Kerry to run against President George W. Bush in the upcoming 2004 election. It was hoped that the event would bring an economic windfall to the city and also showcase the historical and fashionable attractions to the national and international media. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino had worked hard to bring the Democratic National Convention to Boston. The city had tried in 2000 to host the convention but lost out to Los Angeles. On its second try with the help of Senator Edward Kennedy and the state’s congressional delegation Boston was successful. Mayor Menino was very excited for Boston to be in the media spotlight for the four days in July that the convention would be held. It would give the city a chance to bask in the limelight and show its rich historical past and its vibrant present. The Mayor also added that he saw the convention as a challenge for Boston. We’d never had an event of this magnitude. Menino was confident the city would meet the challenge and fare better than others that had hosted political conventions in the past. The city’s......

House Judiciary Committee of the Constitutional Basis for Impeachment Speech

...House Judiciary Committee of the Constitutional Basis for Impeachment Speech by Barbra Jordan on Jul 25, 1974 Mr. Chairman: I join in thanking you for giving the junior members of this committee the glorious opportunity of sharing the pain of this inquiry. Mr. Chairman, you are a strong man and it has not been easy but we have tried as best we can to give you as much assistance as possible. Earlier today, we heard the beginning of the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States, “We, the people.” It is a very eloquent beginning. But when the document was completed on the seventeenth of September 1787 I was not included in that “We, the people.” I felt somehow for many years that George Washington and Alexander Hamilton just left me out by mistake. But through the process of amendment, interpretation and court decision I have finally been included in “We, the people.” Today, I am an inquisitor; I believe hyperbole would not be fictional and would not overstate the solemnness that I feel right now. My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total. I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction of the Constitution. …The subject of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men. That is what we are talking about. In other words, the jurisdiction comes from the abuse or violation of some public trust. It is wrong, I suggest, it is a...

Assess the Importance of the National Party Convention

...Assess the importance of the National Party Convention Meetings held once every 4 years by each party to select it’s presidential and vice-presidential candidates and finalize a party platform. Both major parties and some minor parties, hold them, and they usually last for 4 days in the summer of the election year, and are held in a large city, with the venue being decided by each party's National Committee. The National Party Convention is attended by the delegates (most of whom will have been chosen in the presidential primaries), and much of the national media. This function has also been lost. Not since 1956 has a National Convention actually chosen the vice-presidential candidate; nowadays, the running-mate is chosen by the presidential candidate. Indeed, in recent years, the announcement of the running-mate has been made before, rather than at, the National Convention. In 2008, both Barack Obama (Democrat) and John McCain (Republican) announced their running-mates - Joe Biden (Democrat) and Sarah Palin (Republican) respectively - just before their Conventions convened. It is therefore more accurate to state that the National Convention merely confirms rather than chooses the vice-presidential candidate. National Party Conventions are important because they promote party unity. The Convention is the only time in 4 years that the party actually meets together; at other times, the party exists merely as 50 state parties therefor any wounds......

Convention in Philadelphia

...Aidee Salgado American Government 6/29/2016 The Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia The three proposals that were debated at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787 were the Virginia and New Jersey Plan and the Connecticut Compromise. Legislatures of twelve states had selected seventy-four delegates, and fifty-five filled these seats. These delegates consisted of twenty-nine college graduates and the remaining twenty-six included notables such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. The goal of the the Philadelphia convention was to establish a new Union. The Virginia Plan was the first plan proposed at the Constitutional Convention. This plan was written by James Madison and was led by Governor Edmund Randolph and called for a strong central government. The plan consisted of the following: A two house legislature, with numerical representation, where popularly elected lower house elects the upper house. Broad, yet undefined legislative power, with absolute veto over laws passed by state legislatures with taxing power. Single executive elected by legislature for fixed term. National judiciary elected by the legislature. Council of Revision composed of the executive and judiciary to review laws passed by national legislature. The Virginia Plan generated a counter-proposal by William Paterson of New Jersey called the New Jersey Plan. The New Jersey Plan called for a modest change in the Articles of the Confederation, keep the state governments......

Irish Republican Army

...and Northern Ireland - comprising of the counties of Antrim, Down, Armagh, Londonderry, Tyrone and Fermanagh. Roman Catholics, who made up around one-third of the population of Northern Ireland, were largely opposed to the partition. Irish Republican Army (IRA), nationalist organization devoted to the integration of Ireland as a complete and independent unit. Organized by Michael Collins from remnants of rebel units dispersed after the Easter Rebellion in 1916 (see Ireland), it was composed of the more militant members of the Irish Volunteers, and it became the military wing of the Sinn Féin party. With the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922, the IRA became the stronghold of intransigent opposition to Ireland's dominion status and to the separation of Northern Ireland. During the troubled early years of the Free State, the IRA was responsible for numerous bombings, raids, and street battles on both sides of the Irish border. Popular and effective at first, its fortunes turned after Eamon De Valera, a former IRA supporter, took over the Free State government in 1932. Weakened by internal dissensions, by a loss of popular support because of its violence and pro-German agitation during World War II, by the attainment of republican objectives in 1949, and by government measures against its illegal activities, the IRA declined swiftly. Eventually outlawed by both Irish governments, it became a secret organization. It perpetrated bombing attacks in Belfast, London, and......
