The results of this election made me disappointed and angry, because I wanted Romney to win. It seems like he stands for the same values that I stand for. I also wanted him to win because we got involved in his campaign as a school because we believe God has a plan for every life, and that abortion is wrong. Jeremiah 1:5 says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations”. We believe that God created marriage for one man and one woman. Genesis 2:24 says “Man shall leave his mother and father, and shall be joined with his wife, and they will become one flesh.” In Genesis 1:28, God tells them to have children and fill the earth. Now, I don’t know what kind of science they’re studying, but I’m pretty sure Adam and Steve or Addie and Eve are not going to get the job done. The truth about the elections is, the votes are in, Obama won, and gay marriage has now been approved. It is what it is, and 1Timothy 2:1-2 says we should pray for those in authority so we can have peaceful lives. God’s called us to be salt (Matthew 5:13) and light (Matthew 5:14-16) in this world which means I need to have a good attitude because unbelievers watch how we walk. The truth is, people all over the United States have been praying for over a month and we need to accept God’s answer. The first lie that comes to my mind is that God failed us. Deuteronomy 31:6 says to be happy and not afraid because God goes with
ethnic biasness in local elections. According to The Washington Times Post, the voter turnout among whites and African Americans turned out in identical numbers 54% and 55%. However, in 2013, the turnout was drastically lower between both groups but the whites were thrice the number of African Americans (Schaffner, Wouter, and Ray 12). The article shows the low voter turnout was because of the municipal elections being held in odd-numbered years. The municipal elections were the same in three-quarters…
New Zealand’s first election using the Mixed Member Proportional system was in 1996. (Wikipedia, 2013). Since then we have continued to use this system, as it has been effective in providing proportion and diversity in Parliament, to reflect our nations votes. However the Electoral Commission must review the system to recommend how they think it can be improved and adjusted to make the system effective as possible. In the 2009 review the most major recommendation made to the minister of justice was…
right to vote, is something that we Australians have not always had. Australia became the first country in the world to give women the right to vote in federal elections as well as the right to be elected to go to parliament. This was in 1902. 'Suffragettes' was the term used to describe all women who campaigned for the right to vote in elections. From the 1880s, each Australian colony had at least one suffragette society. These societies published leaflets, organised debates, public meetings and letter-writing…

3. What, if anything surprised you about your findings?
I was surprised that the quiz classified me to be conservative on race issues, being that I am African American. However, upon reflection, I would say that I am fortunate that African Americans today have many opportunities that our ancestors earned for us. Some of these opportunities are still being fought for in other countries. Also, I was surprised that Post Moderns are one of…
League of Democracy, the dictatorship ruling the country was forced to call a general election in 1990.
As Aung San Suu Kyi’s campaigning for the NLD increased, she and many others were imprisoned. Aung San Suu Kyi was banned from personally standing in the election, yet the NLD still won 82% of the seats in Parliament. Despite this, the dictatorship refused to hand over power and neglected the results of the election. After many years of being released and re-imprisoned, Aung San Suu Kyi was finally…

Wizard of Oz Reflection
The Populist Movement was a political party that sought to represent the interests and views of
ordinary people. Populism generally arose following the Civil War, and the Industrial Revolution. As
the Industrial Revolution began to take over, it led to the growth of towns and cities as well as the
takeover of manufactured goods. In the midst of the industrial growth, countless Americans continued
to live in poverty…
of Korea and in the failure, in 1945, of the occupying Powers to reach agreement on the method to be used for giving independence to Korea. This failure was not due to anything inherent in the attitude of the people of Korea themselves, but was a reflection of those wider and more fundamental differences of outlook and policy which have become so marked a feature of the international scene..
C. Prospects of unification. The Korean people, one in race, language and culture, fervently desire to live…
The National Media
The media plays a vital role in the circulation of information about politics, campaigns and elections. As technology evolves, the media evolves along with it; allowing media coverage to expand rapidly and become available to more people across the United States. This influence on politics has begun to affect the importance of political issues and alter the opinion of the public. Members in the national media tend to hold favoritisms that standout in their presentation of political…
“Analysis of Gotta Love Those Bread & Butter Unions”
Originally Written by P. Nelson
The ethics triangle is a model to follow to help militate against unethical decision-making. If Mayor Burns used this model it might have helped him make better decisions. When there is no moral discernment of what is right or wrong, a public official or administrator needs to analyze the situation carefully. However, in the following case study this does not appear to be something Mayor Burns practiced…
