FC: Power and Wealth in America | By: Dylan Coker
1: George W. Bush is the president of our great nation. One of (if not) the most powerful countries in the world. He has power to keep this country afloat or send it into ruin. It makes you wonder what you would do with that kind of power???
2: Democracy is the form of government we have. This has kept our country functioning for over 200 years. We have freedoms that other people in other countries don't have.
3: Money.... some would say makes the world go 'round. That is true to some extent. With money comes power... the more money the more power a person has.
4: (This represents power) Power is some thing all humans strive for. With power comes control. Humans for centuries have sought for power! The first sign for control would be slavery, if you could control a man you could control anything or anyone.
5: The American Bald Eagle is our representation of freedom. It flies through our skies with ease. Much like the United States influence on the world.
6: OIL! Oil is like power in its raw form. He who controls oil controls the world. At the turn of the last century cars came on the scene and with it the demand for gasoline that comes from oil. Now the world is dependant on oil...
7: Cars run on gasoline and gasoline comes from oil. Oil is the most important resource on our planet right now. Slowly but surely oil is losing its grip on the world. New technologies have allowed cars to run on electricity, water, and ethenal.
8: America!! land of the free. It was just a small group of colonies 200 years ago and now a VERY powerful country. With all that power we could do some damage to the world or keep it safe for everyone.
9: Now and in the future our government will effect our planet for better or for worse. We have the power to control our govenment. So it is our decision to keep this world safe or harm it for ever.
10: Diamonds! are a girls best friend. They help fuel corprate America. This causes pain, thievery, and bloodshed. Diamonds come mainly from Africa and many have been fought over.
11: Perfumes have been a staple in many world power countries for centuries. Ancient Romans were addicted to perfumes. Now America is hooked on perfumes.
12: With power and wealth comes exploration, man's last frontier is space. Who knows what awaits us and our country is at the forefront of space travel. Only time will tell where our technology will take us.
