Coming from a family with strong Democratic views and perspectives, has greatly impacted my political values. Growing up watching MSNBC with my parents, which is a liberal driven television network has me see I am a diehard liberal. with an ideology in which every citizen is inclined to his or hers natural rights. This Wednesday, August 28, 2013 marks the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. “March on Washington”, Dr King fought for equality and fairness for all. In fact my grandfather took part in the fight by joining Dr. King, and millions to fight for quality of life for all people. Dr. King march not for only Black people, but for all people who are being treated unfairly.Order now
This March on Washington symbolizes my family’s ideology. The March symbolizes equality for all, no matter what race, gender, or social economic status. Dr. King dream was that “his children will not be judge by the color their skin, but by the content of their character”. My family has instilled in me to treat people fairly and not to look at people any differently because of the wealth they obtain or education they hold.
Dr. King “Dream” has not fully arrived, however we are getting closer. Today I can go to school with other kids of different races; fifty years ago we were fighting to have that right. Our finding father said that we ALL had the “Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”, even though they did not abolish slavery, however people like Dr. King, and other civil right leaders have fought for equality for all and have somewhat succeeded. It is my belief that the Democrat Party is fighting for equality and the rights for all people, not just the ten percent.
The Republican Party is full of contrast one minute they are saying government should stay out of the private lives of their citizens. They do not want to help people who are down on their luck; because they feel that the government should stay out of the lives of the private citizens. The Republicans believes that they need to get involved in private citizens lives. For example, our great country was debating the issue on same sex marriage for many years, the Republicans party was against same sex marriage until the Supreme Court overruled the.
The Democrat Party is struggling to keep economic issues in the forefront focusing on economical struggles, rather than private matters. The Republicans are more interested in telling women that she doesn’t have the “right to choose”. The Republicans are against welfare programs, head start, but they are willing to tell a woman who wants abortions NO! This woman more than likely can’t afford a child. If the child is born, then they will let child go hungry, because the United States is not a socialist country. Checks and balances is what are needed to keep this country balance.
There’s always the question about who should have power and how much. We elect presidents into office to lead us to better economic situation and to protect from all foreign affairs. Congress is there to monitor the president and to make sure he’s making the right decision that will better our country. I think our system of checks and balances is the best way to run a country. Sadly we have a congress that doesn’t want to see our president succeed in any way or fashion. President Obama can’t get bills passed because congress doesn’t to back him, and they do want him to be successful.
It’s not that congress doesn’t agree with President Obama or not, quite frankly they just don’t want to see an African American president succeed. They rather see him crumble and fall instead of seeing their country rise above economical struggles. In order for this country to be run smoothly, Congress, the Senate, and the President must work together to overcome all of the issues that we are facing this nation. This is what Dr King vision was that we must all embraces are differences and work together to help people, other countries, and write policies that are fair to all.
