Obama on Business & Labor

Obama on Business & Labor | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

Obama is a strong supporter of worker's rights and believes they should be able to go on strike if necessary and I agree with him because it gives some power to the people. The atricle said Obama would see to it that if people did go on strike they wouldn't be expelled from their job. Obama also intends on raising the minimum wage which I also agree with.

Are more federal regulations on guns and ammunition needed? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Are more federal regulations on guns and ammunition needed? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

The availability of guns and ammunition in this country is unhealthy. There are way too many shootings, murders and robberies today. The mentally unstable and criminals are getting possesion of these weapons way too easily. Obama plans on increasing federal regulations before one can own a gun. I agree with this I think that everything should be checked before a person obtains something that could be so dangerous. People who already have guns shouldn't mind because it's only for safety regulations. There's too many people who should not have their hands on a gun, ever. There are way too many deaths in America due to gun violence.

Should all Americans have a right (be entitled) to basic health care? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should all Americans have a right (be entitled) to basic health care? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I don't think that the government should give everyone health care only because the government can take it away as fast as they gave it out. And I also think people shouldn't be required to have it either. Romney argues that everyone should have to pay for their own healthcare. He observed that taxpayers are paying for the free riders. "We believe in personal responsibility".

Should K-12 teachers get tenure? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should K-12 teachers get tenure? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

Obama thinks that a teacher should be given a few chances to prove themselves but if they do not improve they should removed from being a teacher. This is a good stance because there's too many teachers on tenure who no longer have the motivation and energy to teach students as well as someone straight out of college. 'I reject a system that rewards failure". Too many teachers are taking advantage of tenure and at that point its no longer about the children and them getting a good education. America should have the best opportunities possible for each generation thats in school learning.

Is the 2012 NDAA, which authorized arresting and indefinitely detaining suspected terrorists (including US citizens) without charge, good for America? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Is the 2012 NDAA, which authorized arresting and indefinitely detaining suspected terrorists (including US citizens) without charge, good for America? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

Obama signed the NDAA bill which gives extra money to the military and it also gives the right to arrest suspected terrorists without trial. I think this is a good idea because it keeps the country safe and eliminates the chance of attack. The terrorist threats are something that needs to be controlled and taken care of. If you are suspected to be a terrorist then its better off to be in jail rather than on the streets near innocent people.

Should the wealthiest 1% of Americans be taxed more heavily? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the wealthiest 1% of Americans be taxed more heavily? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

Obama has the right view on taxes in my opinion. He believes that the wealthier people, upper class, should be taxed more. Although these people worked hard to get themselves where they are at I also believe that they should take a part and help out the country. They have more to contribute to the country then the middle and lower class who might work paycheck to paycheck. Obama stated in the article that "the wealthiest Americans are paying the lowest taxes" which isnt right. He also says "This is about the nations welfare". The wealthy should start paying more than the average person in the middle class.

Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I don't have a definite opinion on this topic so I agree with both Romney and Obama. I think that people should be able to marry whoever they want because in reality you can't help who you fall in love with and I don't think that the government should be able to tell the people who can get married. Just because there's two people of the same sex who want to get married what makes them so different than everyone else? Obama thinks that everyone should have the equal right to get married and I think hes right. Gays should be treated like everyone else and have the right to marry who they want it's ridiculous that if two people are in love they can't come together in marriage. But I also think Romney has a point in all this. I agree with his statement: "I believe that the ideal place to raise a child is in a home with a mom and a dad."

Will increased domestic oil drilling lower gas prices? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Will increased domestic oil drilling lower gas prices? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

If we keep drilling for oil in other countries it will get us no where besides higher gas prices. If we drill for oil in and around the U.S that also won't help anything. Although we would get lower prices for gas we would be harming the environment and would hurt us in the long run. As Obama argues, we should be investing in other means of energy and oil which can lower prices and are environmentally friendly.

Should undocumented immigrants have access to social services such as Medicaid, welfare, or public education? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should undocumented immigrants have access to social services such as Medicaid, welfare, or public education? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

Romney thinks that immigration should be illegal still and I think it should be too. Romney states that we should keep the fence, maybe even build more, and make sure the immigrants who come here illegall should not get instate tuition credits or any type of aid for that matter. He says very correctly that aiding these people will only encourage others to come here and take advantage of the great things America has to offer.

Should the United States intervene militarily in Syria? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the United States intervene militarily in Syria? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I agree with Gary Johnson and his views on International Relations. He claims that the U.S has made itself too many enemies and I agree 100% on that. The United States gets itself too involved in every countries business and Johnson states that we should keep our military for defense against countries attacking us rather than the U.S attacking countries in wars that have nothing to do with us.

Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney on How He Would Cut Government Spending

I think that Mitt Romney has the right idea when it comes to government spending he said he will eliminate unnecessary programs in the federal government. He will also pay attention to how much each program is costing the United States. He said he wants to get this straight so parents and their children dont have to pay off debt for programs they dont have to have, he doesn't want to continue borrowing money from China.

Should the US federal government have bailed out US private financial corporations like AIG, Bank of America, Citigroup, etc.? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the US federal government have bailed out US private financial corporations like AIG, Bank of America, Citigroup, etc.? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Jordans Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I agree with Mitt Romney's view on financial coporation bailouts because the banks are what holds all the country's money and without it the country would be put through some many failures and would collapse. Banks are necessary because they are the foundation of the financial system. With the use of banks it keeps money flowing which keeps the economy somewhat stable and stops it from an economic collapse. I also agree with his statement that the money needs to start being watched how it is spent.
