Establishing a Democratic Government in IraqPersuasive Essay #1 (Bill of Rights)
IntroductionThe Transparency International presented Iraq is the most corrupt government in theMiddle East. It is described as a hybrid regime because of a flawed democracy. The report Costsof War, in 2011, concluded that the U.S. military presence in Iraq cannot ensure that there willbe no corruption in the political setup of Iraq. According to this report, there are clear signs thatpost-Saddam Iraq was not established to enhance democracy in Iraq[ CITATION Har18 \l1033 ].I am a representative from the United States Government in Iraq. My objective is to helpestablish a democratic government. I persuade the Iraqis to give their basic constitutional rights. Iselect three Amendments from America’s Bill of Rights. This essay contains persuasivearguments articulating the necessity of adopting these rights.The Ten Amendments in the Bill of RightsThe first 10 amendments in the Constitution are known as the Bill of Rights. These amendmentsare:1.Congress cannot make any law based on religion, or prevent free exercise for speech,press, right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government forredress of grievances.2.The security of a free state needs a well-regulated Militia.3.Soldiers shall not be quartered in any house during the time of peace, without consentof the owner, but according to the law.4.People have the right to be secure in houses, papers, and effects against unsecuresearchers, shall not be violated, but for probable cause, supported by Oath.5.People are not held to be answer for capital, unless or presentment of a Grand Jury.
6.In the criminal prosecutions, the accused can enjoy the right to a speedy, and publictrial, by an impartial jury of the state.7.In the suit at common law, where the worth in controversy shall exceed 20 dollars,the right of trial through jury shall be preserved.8.Excessive bail is not required, no excessive fine imposed, and no cruel punishments9.The enumeration in constitution, for certain rights, shall not be construed to denyothers retained by the people.10.Powers are not delegated to the United States by constriction, but are reserved to thestates respectively or to the people[ CITATION htt20 \l 1033 ].These amendments have a direct impact on the life of people in the United States. Thereare many rights of citizens in the United States. From these 10 amendments, I discuss the FirstAmendment, Fourth Amendment, and Tenth Amendment to provide basic constitutional rights tothe Iraqis. There are clear reasons behind the selection of these three amendments.The Three Amendments for Iraqi GovernmentThe First Amendment is about to provide the rights of freedom of speech, press,peaceable assembly, religion, and petition for redress of grievances. The implementation of thefirst amendment is logical for Iraqis as in this way they can express themselves freely, they canobey their religion, and they have freedom of speech. All these aspects are necessary to establisha democratic government in Iraq.The Fourth Amendment is about the right of people to be secure in their persons, houses,papers, and effect, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and nowarrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularlydescribing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
