Journal 26

We’ve come to be consumed by a 24-hour, slash-and-burn, negative ad, bickering, small-minded politics that doesn’t move us forward. Sometimes one side is up and the other side is down. But there’s no sense that they are coming together in a common-sense, practical, nonideological way to solve the problems that we face.

i really dont get this quote but i think it means that this country is being run by corrupt officials and good ppl. this means that they will hardly come 2 an agreement so our country like wen ppl vote 4 a president. one side will try 2 ruin the their opponents by makin up lies while the other person will play fair. our country should vote 4 the person that has the best i deas that will help the country out the most. this country has been run by many corrupt ppl thats y smoe times the country has fights between each other. the presidanets should be more like george washington and abraham lincoln. george washington had many great ideas and help free the nation from britain. abraham brought our country 2gether after it had a civil war.

i think this means that the politics are not getting along which limit our resources to get any real problem fixed. I believe that this is saying that our problems keep on going because tehy prove themselves to others so they get elected and once they are the presedint they dont know what to do. If they would be united they could share ideas that can help them iherit more usefull information and become better people but theyre stubborn and dont want to look ignorant which in reality they are. I belive that if they would work together we would have less problems and help will be easier to get but it seems impossible because of theyre differences that they dont accept. I think they should work together but they dont seem to understand that everyone is ddepending on theyre final decisions on their arguement...but they dont see that wen they argue the country is being distroyed little by little.

i really dont get this quote but i think it means that our country is being ran by different types of people. so they never come to an agreement that is why politics never move us forward. so we can never solve our problems fast enough because of the two different types of political sides. also i think that the presidents (george bush)should be better. because politics are not that good these days.

well i think this is true because in politics there are two parties. they aer the republicans and the democratic which are always against each other to get in power. so they need to work together in order to make this nation a better place instead of a worse place. but these two parties try so hard to get there canidate into the presidential chair so they could make things one way and not the other.so the best thing for them to do is work together to make U.S. better than what it is today.

I think this quote says that we are not doing well politic wise. That is because people are too busy trying to prove why they make a good president that they try to make the other people feel bad. Instead of working together, they try to out match each other.

I agree but I also think that there's hope among society for the better. Politics do have a negative flare to them though because one candidate will put down another candidate or do whatever they have to do to win an election. However, there's a better way to win an election than to destroy someone's reputation or deceive others. People don't need to put down others or talk badly about someone in order for them to win an election.

I agree with this qoute because there is a lot of negative adds going on. Instead of positive add campaigns more and more people are doing campains about why not to vote for the oppenent person. This causes confusion on the common people. Politics are going crazy, and we pay them with our confused minds.

I agree with this quote because it is true that some politics do not move us forward.Sometimes the politics say things like they are going to help us but they never do something to help us solve those problems that we face.Politics are not coming together to help people that need it. Thats what i think this quote means.

I think that this quote is saying that all the people who are running this country are not doing a good job. All they are doing is trying to prove themselves that they are good enough but they are not focusing on what they need to do. They are not doing anything to fix any problems. All they are doing is fighting to see who is a better leader. But when it comes down to making decisions to help out the people and the country they don't know anything and they don't help us move forward.

I THINK IT INVOLVES BEING VERY COMPETITIVE AND NOT ACTUALLY DOING ANY BETTER BY ARGUING AND CAUSING A HUGE CONTROVERSY RATHER THAN COLLIDE BOTH OF THE PEOPLE AND KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE. ITS THE MATTER OF BEATING THE OTHER PERSON BUT AT THE SAME TIME GETTING YOUR POINT OUT THERE ALSO WHILE THE OTHER PERSON IS DOING THE SAME THING.BUT IT WOULD BE BETTER IF THEY MAKE THE GOVERNMENT STRINGER RATHER THAN MAKING IT LOOK LIKE A COMPETITION TO SEE WHOS BETTER AND WHOS NOT MAKES THE PERSON WHO LOST..WELL THATS WHAT I THINK..PEACE AROXX PEACE

Politics do have a negative flare to them because one candidate will put down another candidate or do whatever they have to do to win an election. I think that what ever seems to be the best for the nation agree upon it.

I agree with this quote because I do believe that our country is all over we're all not combined togehter like we should be so what I think is that there nedds to be alot of changes in our country.So all that hatefulness nedd to be put to the side and more togetherness needs to be involed.

I think the world really needs peace so we can work to together and make somthing great.And we can make somthing so better than what it is now.So it can be a way better country then what it is . Like we can live up to the standers of what people think of america. So we can be that great usa that we can be and so it can be beeer than we are now. I think we can do this as a country . The much we fight and scream we can put that intio somthing postive.

i think that this means that we should think about who we vote for president because we might choose someone that instead of moving us ahead he is moving us back from where we are. also that some people know that cuttin down trees will hurt the enviroment but they still do it anyways.

BARACK OBAMA, New York Times, Dec. 11, 2006

It affects us as citizens because it is spilting us apart as a nation. The democrates and the republicans never ever agree on anything.It limits our chances on getting any problem fixed. They try to make them self look all good for the elections to get votes and then when they get elected for what ever they are running for they dont know what to do.what they dont understand is when they fight the country is being destroyed little by little because people are taking sides and they fight with each other over what ever the politics are fighting about.

I kind of don't understand what this quote is saying but from what I do this is what I have to say. It affect the nation because the republicans and democrats never really agree on certain things. For instance the war, republicans are for the war and the democrats aren't. Then with the two politcal parties disagreeing it causes tention between the citizens of those parties.I think that they should settle their differences so the nation would be better off.

I think this quote is true. I think we have come to an 24 hour slash and burn, negetive ad, bickering, small minded polotics. I think that somtimes is up and somtimes is down. They should come together and join. It is just commen scence. We should come together and join like a family we should fight with each other and be a family.

To me this quote was very thoughtful. If we were all united with one view are world might accomplish a lot more in politics. We are the United States but are political views are not united together. At the same time we are the United States because we wanted the rights to express ourselves freely. We have the freedom of speech and freedom religion so we can express our individual views of the world as much as we want to. Fighting is a hard way to have your way be seen but if we were all united then we wouldn’t be the individual country we are today.

I think it would look better if they work together because then the U.S. maybe a better place to live in. Then again i may be wrong cause then they may not come to an agreement on something that is important. And when it comes down on voting for a new president they may not agree on the same person. so it an be a good thing or a bad thing

I believe that the two political parties should try to work together even though they dont agree with all their same ideas. I believe that this will help the government more better. I think that they should try to get together instead of always taring eachothter apart. Because i believe that they sr e not doing the government any justice this way.

I think this quote is saying that what will happen if the Democrats and the Republicans were to stick together than to be spread apart like they are? I think this place will become a better place if they just worked together and became civilized to one another. I also think as many problems we have we need these two very different people to help us out and get on the same page with us. I also think they focus too much on trying to out shine one another but what they don't know is that if they help us out they can both come out on top and shine. I think they should come together because we can all get our problems figured out and be able to move on with our lifes.

i think this means that the politics are not getting along which limit our resources to get any real problem fixed. I believe that this is saying that our problems keep on going because they prove themselves to others so they get elected and once they are the presedint they dont know what to do. That is because people are too busy trying to prove why they make a good president that they try to make the other people feel bad. Instead of working together to help make us a better society.

At first I didn't understand this log quote. But since Mr. Hamilton explained it to me I get it . I think that the two parties should work together to make the U.S a better nation. I think they're acting like little kids, trying to prove their point, when they should just get over their differences.This is like me and my little brother fighting over thin air except it can't stop, but if he stops being dumb,if possible,we could get a lot more things done.

I nevered really expected a guy running for president would say such a thing. That really SURPRISED me. Sadly, he does have a point, we do have a topsy-tervy government with small minded politics. They all want it their way or the high way. It is really sad that we have such a government that do such things. I hope that next year will be totaly different then this . =)

i think that this quote means is that politics are doing nothing for us if we still remain in wars with other nations and that our problems arent being solved, and it is futile to keep trying to provoke peace when no matter what there will be war anyway becuase America does not get along with all of the other countries and we gotta do what we gotta do to stay on top so peace is also irrelevant...and ppl are only focusing on getting elected and they will do watevr it takes in disregard for the developement of the government.

I agree with this because small-minded politics are the ones that just want to be elected but doesn't do much to help us have a better future. I also agree with the one side beng up and the other down. I agree with this because sometimes it seems democrats are more favorable than republics or the other way around. I also agree that even though we have president and vice president. Or republics and democrats it seems were not really getting much help. We have wars that we don't know what were fighting for we still need lots of improvement and it seems were NEVER going to come close to it.

I think this quote means that our political partys are so worry about making each other look bad that they forget to make the governement. I think that is ok to have two political partys because that way more ideas come in place that just one political party which would probably have the same ideas all the time. Idont think that it would be a good idea to have only one political party because two is good only if they focus on there ideas and not on making each other look bad instead.

I think this quote is saying that the two parties that are trying to take control can never meet to an agreement and instead of focusing on the nation's problems they are just focusing on trying to prove that they are good enough to be the nations leader. all they do is debate on who is the better leader and kinda block out whats really the nation/people's problem. This problem is keeping the country's government from moving forward.

We’ve come to be consumed by a 24-hour, slash-and-burn, negative ad, bickering, small-minded politics that doesn’t move us forward. Sometimes one side is up and the other side is down. But there’s no sense that they are coming together in a common-sense, practical, nonideological way to solve the problems that we face.




i think this means that the politics are not getting along which limit our resources to get any real problem fixed. I believe that this is saying that our problems keep on going because tehy prove themselves to others so they get elected and once they are the presedint they dont know what to do. If they would be united they could share ideas that can help them iherit more usefull information and become better people but theyre stubborn and dont want to look ignorant which in reality they are. I belive that if they would work together we would have less problems and help will be easier to get but it seems impossible because of theyre differences that they dont accept. I think they should work together but they dont seem to understand that everyone is ddepending on theyre final decisions on their arguement...but they dont see that wen they argue the country is being distroyed little by little.


beyonce B OUT!

I think this means politics are supost to have better ideas for our country to make it better.But there are two groups republicans and the democratics istead of working together they are against each other. They should work together for the good and share each others ideas.

I think that this quote is somewhat true. Because once you really look into it, the political parties that we have in the united states are all so caught up in "themselves" , trying to make themselves look good or make one better than another. But in real life, they aren't really paying much attention to the most important things that are happening around "their" country, or "their" people. They are so caught up in making themselves "look" good, that in the end, how can they be looked as a "good" political party when in the end the country is in need. They just want to be seen as the political party that is now in power, that they beat the rest.

I agree but I also think that there's hope among society for the better.

I think what this quote means is that every person who tried to do something right someone else has to come and ruin it. If both people came together it would make people life better.

if our political parties were together i think they would solve the problem better because they would work it out together and they would not be fighting over the situation and whos political power is bigger and forget about the situation.

This quote means that there is no one answer to all of our problems and have to work on trying to solve those problems. If our political parties were united we would be able to solve our problems in the community and our society. Each party fights for its right to be the controller of the nation yet they do not focus on our problems. They focus on making a better advertisement and even if they promise to do something they never do it. They make promises they cannot keep just to create a more engaging advertisement. They fight so hard to become their version of "popular" to gain control of the control. If all the political parties were to be united we would make alot more progress. Our representaves would adress our problems and be able to keep their promises. with one united party we could maintain political and social peace all around the United States. One party would bring one nation together to stand as one and become the strongest the United States has ever been.....

i dont really get this quote but i think it means that this country is being run by corrupt officials and good people. But not many people notice this. I also think this means that our political party is either not getting along or they are bieng corrupt but i dont really know what this quote is trying to say other than the politics are causing us to get limited resources.

i really dont get this quote but this is what i think it means. the government never works together they always work apart and because of that we aren't moving forward. if one part comes up with an idea the other part never agrees.they always think their idea is better so they argue about it. they never try to comprimise. so nothng is being done to make our goverment better.

i think the impact is that the political parties are too busy argueing that they dont really notice the problems that our country is going through. if they could reunite this country would be a better place instead of how we our known around the world today. they always argue. what is the point on having political parties if they just argue and not help the people in this great country.

the quote means like if the political partys get together then maybe it would be better but i really don't kno.........if the poitical partys get together then maybe they will make better choices and the decided information will end up being better from wat they do now...

this quote is trying to say that most of the problems that are caused is by the republicans and the democrats. both of them are fighting each other but what they do is to make things worse. our country should vote for the person that has the best ideas that will help the country out the most. is not that this president is not doing good his job but he make things more difficult. like other presidents have make things better for us and for our country.

well i think this is true because in politics there are two parties. they aer the republicans and the democratic which are always against each other to get in power. so they need to work together in order to make this nation a better place instead of a worse place. but these two parties try so hard to get there canidate into the presidential chair so they could make things one way and not the other.so the best thing for them to do is work together to make U.S. better than what it is today

It affects us as citizens because it is spilting us apart as a nation. The democrates and the republicans never ever agree on anything.It limits our chances on getting any problem fixed. They try to make them self look all good for the elections to get votes and then when they get elected for what ever they are running for they dont know what to do. They just what to be elected and thats all
