way our government is using the money our country has, but they stated that we they are aware that our country’s debt is increasing and that the US spends way too much. I am planning on using the “Claim of Policy” type of persuasive speech. I believe that the government should spend more on education and less on other things; this would be a change of law or policy. I plan on using problem-cause order or problem-cause-solution. I haven’t fully decided whether my cause will be clearly stated in the problem or not, given the direction that I take the speech in. I am still in the process of doing research and I’m hoping that what I find will help me decide the full direction of my argument. As of right now, I feel like it will end up being a problem-solution order if I stick with the cause of funding for education. My first source is titled “STOP US BEFORE WE SPEND AGAIN: INSTITUTIONAL CONSTRAINTS ON GOVERNMENT SPENDING”. The author is named David Primo. It is an article from November 2006 about government spending policies. I found this article via EBSCOhost. The author lists his sources at the end of the document, such as Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations and US Census Bureau, to show where his information came from, which makes him seem honest. The source is also only about four and a half years old which makes it relatively current. It also states the volume number and issue number on the first page of the document. This document will help my argument because it talks about the pitfalls of our governments’ spending and policy on spending.

My second source is titled “The business of buying American: Public procurement as trade strategy in the USA”. The authors are Elizabeth Thurbon and Linda Weiss. This article was written in December of 2006. I found this source on EBSCOhost. The authors’ credentials are listed below their names on the first page of the document. This tells me what their authority is and gives me a sense that they are credible. Their article is about public
