The purpose of government

What is the purpose of government? Select a quotation from a US president. Then, write an argumentative essay that explains why you agree or disagree with the president’s views. In the conclusion to your essay, present your own views on the purpose of government based on the statement you evaluated and discussed.

Introduction should:
Give background on the topic or question being addressed
Recognize the various sides of the debate
Offer a clear statement of your claim (Claim should be knowledgeable and precise; at least one or two sentences)

A body paragraph needs to develop one of the main ideas presented in your introduction:
Use quotations
Include evidence in your research
Add details and examples to support the main idea
Offer evidence that supports your claim, then add ideas of your own
Present a counterclaim, then argue against it to strengthen your argument

Addressing counterclaims:
Build a strong argument by refuting an opposing position

A strong conclusion sums up your argument:
It restates the claim and the evidence used to support it
It is your last attempt to persuade the reader to agree with your claim
