Assessing The U.S. Government

Forming A More Perfect Union
Edward Snowden, the worlds most famous spy, and “whistleblower” (a person who exposes misconduct, alleged dishonest or illegal activity occurring in an organization, as defined by Wikipedia) is one of “America’s Most Wanted” fugitives. It is being debated by Congress as to whether or not such a threat to the stability of the government deserves the right to a fair trial due to the extent of his actions, and the fact he is one who could potentially expose top secret information to the public.
Ensure Domestic Tranquility
Provide For The Common Defense
Obama’s current foreign policy is believed to be flawed, due to the fact that it is said by many to be partially accountable for the ongoing calamity in Ukraine. The president has been accused recently of having “no strategy when it comes to security policy” and that he is “leading from behind”. Foreign policy generally involves the action of all three branches of government, and change rests on their shoulders.
The number one priority for 2014 with regards to making adjustments for the country’s foreign policy is to “Halt the Rise of a Nuclear-Armed Iran”. This plan is to ensure the safety and security of the U.S. by providing an advanced form of defense in order to establish increased strength rather than allow the defense systems to plummet as the years go on. By taking the action to defend the U.S. now, the country is putting it’s best foot forward in order to prepare for any rise that may occur in the creation of nuclear technology in Iran.
