"How do Conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans?"

by April Castro

I’m going to talk about how do conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans. Before I get to that for those who don’t know what conservative mean the meaning is reluctant to accept change: in favor of preserving the status quo and traditional values and customs, and against abrupt change. I will be talking about Martin Luther King Jr. how one of his speeches made other Americans happier. Also about the constitution and its promise “Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness”. In addition the change in woman rights. These are all things that America has changed that make America an even better place to live.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Joseph Lowery remembers when the 1960s South was burning with racism -- the day a white man walked up to him and stubbed out a lit cigar on his shoulder, when iced tea was thrown in his face, when four young black men were shot with pistols as he led a march against segregation in Decatur, Ala. Early in our country's history, almost all black people came here as slaves. Because people in the South felt they needed cheap labor in building the land and because black people in Africa knew how to farm land like that in the South, they were taken from their homes and forced to come to America. Upon arriving in this country, they were sold to whites as slaves without rights or freedoms. Without this change people, American Citizens would be happy, there would still be slaves and there would still be a lot of conflict between all the Americans’.

Declaration of Independence.

"Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness" is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase is meant to exemplify the "unalienable rights" with which all human beings are endowed for the protection of which they institute governments.

Conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans. First example being Martin Luther King. He was a man that changed the world because of one speech. Also the Declaration of Independence has a promise of Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. To be able to make this happen you will have to make changes not always keep it the same. These are reasons how Conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans.
