Which aspect of each topic do you feel causes the biggest problem for the United States today? Explain
Since the United States plays such an important role in the well being of African countries, these countries rely and depend on our economic support, which cannot exist for eternity. As Africa’s debt increases, problems such as AIDS become worse, and these countries are in need of even more financial aid. African dependence on the United States will be an extremely tough issue in the years to come, and American creditors will be left without repayment of their loans to African nations.
Without any regulation of hedge funds, the nation’s whole economy is highly susceptible to collapse, and therefore the nation’s stability is compromised. Also, hedge funds provide major tax relief, which is not in the best interest of the government with regards to extremely wealthy investors. These investors should pay their fair share of taxes, and in their not doing so, the nation is harmed as a whole.
If no limit is placed on congressmen/congresswomen’s terms, the entire system of checks and balances is completely at risk. If congress doesn’t contain dynamics, but rather is faced with the same decision making, the nation will not develop to its full potential. Representatives must remain relevant and make decisions in the best interests of the peoples that they represent.
Regarding Iraqi Reconstruction, the United States has made a huge mistake. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of US soldiers are stationed in Iraq, fighting a war that we should not even be involved with in the first place. The United States has invested far too much time and resources into the Iraq situation, while the people of Iraq should be left to make choices for themselves and defend their own independence.
