    Your essay on Angela Davis reflects how educated you are on her and her life. It allowed me to get a better understanding of who she was and is. Your claim was basically stating that Angela Davis should receive the Civil Rights award, but in your second to last paragraph it distracts from your claim. I still believe you should incorporate…[Read more]

I feel for the families of those the criminal did his/her injustice against, however I also do believe that their are other ways to deal with criminals that do not take up all those resources you stated. What is your opinion in the matter? Thank you for sharing, I hope to see more of your writing in the future.

    Thank you for sharing your story, it is truly inspiring. I definitely have not gone through everything you have, but I can relate to the feeling of worthlessness and self doubt.

    • Based on the article you referenced, I would agree that Canada’s healthcare seems only logical for us too. However, I am wondering what it would cost America to get to the same point of free healthcare as Canada?

    • I really enjoyed your discussion of this topic. You made many convincing points. You also present many sides of the situation

    • I really enjoy your take on this issue. I agree that America could exponentially and universally benefit from having free healthcare available to all people. Canada’s system is a great example of the inalienable human right to health being acknowledged and respected. What would the effects be for the economy if free healthcare was provided?

    • Hi Jillian,
      I thought that this was a very well written argument with good supporting details and a strong claim. I don’t agree with your point of view and I believe that it would be more detrimental to our country to make healthcare universal. Although Canada’s system works for them, they pay significantly higher taxes and I’m sure your friends that you have met wouldn’t be interested in paying higher taxes to give others free healthcare. If we were to make our healthcare universal, than the wait lists for our doctors and hospitals would be extremely long and people that need medical attention wouldn’t be able to get help. This article by Michael D. Tanner shows that your point of view wouldn’t make sense for our country. https://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/universal-health-care-not-best-option
      Thank you for your time and consideration Jillian

    • Hi Jillian,
      I like how passionate you are about this topic, and how well you cited your sources and used that evidence to back up your claim. I have to disagree with your position though. In Canada, it may seem like they thrive on the concept of free healthcare, but in reality, they pay much higher taxes due to the fact that they don’t have to pay for the healthcare, and since everyone has access to this healthcare, there is an insanely long wait list for those who seek medical attention. If there’s a long wait list for some procedures in America, where only paying people receive healthcare, imagine that same circumstance, but everyone gets that care. So yes, economically, it’d be great for the people (besides the high taxes), but in the long run, it would be terrible for those in dire need of a doctor. Thank you for your time, Jillian.
