The folllowing post has two assignments namely;
1.The Science of Morality
write an essay addressing the following questions. READ THROUGHLY
1. Freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of association are all values that we as Americans hold dear. Yet, we sometimes encounter ethical quandaries when individuals or groups who
seek to proliferate ideas that the majority would consider nefarious demand statuses of recognition and privilege normally reserved for more widely-accepted perspectives. Consider this article on
the implications of 501(c)(3) tax status awards for racist, white-nationalist propaganda organizations. Consider the arguments on both sides of this public debate. On one hand, you have the
argument that all Americans (and organizations) should be afforded equal rights, notwithstanding different points of view (remember Evelyn Beatrice Hall: “I do not agree with what you have to say,
but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it”). On the other hand, you have the arguments that government tax incentives should not be subsidizing hate groups, and that the groups in question
are unworthy of non-profit status because they operate in a deceptive manner (with misleadingly benign names) and are not really “educating” as the spirit of the law intended. What say you on this
issue? Did the IRS err in these cases? To what rights are such groups entitled? What statuses would you—or would you not—confer upon such groups?
2. Suppose that someone who reads your answers to the first part of this assignment accuses you of bias. Another reader states that your answer is “just your opinion,” and that there is nothing
that makes your opinion more valid than anyone else’s. Defend your position. How would you counter such charges? What makes your answer more than just opinion?
2.American Independent Voting Behavior
Conduct a political case study on the voting behavior of the American Electorate in the United States Presidential Elections and how they synchronize nonpartisan voters (Independents) and their
voting attitudes to that making them willingly unidentified with the two major political parties, Democrat and Republican. Pay particular attention to Independent voter attitudes and
characteristics with an overview of the historical and anomalous perspective of the Independent perspective. Place a primary focus on the historical voting patterns of American Independent voters
increasingly rise in the United States and explore what factors contribute to Independent voting choice, specifically in the 2016 Presidential Election Donald Trump Vs. Hillary Clinton. Examine the
following case study question: To what extent do factors shape the voting behavior on the increasing rise of American Independent voter choice and voter turnout in the 2016 United States
Presidential Election and by extension, how do independents differ in part from the two major partisan ties of the Democratic and Republican parties? Amongst various political scholars and experts,
provide a general historical overview of US Independent voter choice and voter turnout. Furthermore, describe the role of Independent participation in the past several US presidential elections,
the stability of their voting choices and party identification of the two major political parties.
