"A Modest Proposal" - Katie Tilley



Imagine you are running in the 2012 Presidential election, and the United States is facing the same issues England housed during Swift’s composition of “A Modest Proposal.”  Create your platform based upon Swift’s implausible "solution" to the social and political issues you will face as President. You will present this as a formal speech in class. This should be satiric in nature, as you will mimic the famous style of Jonathan Swift.

Please view these two Presidential speeches and make note of what you do and do not enjoy.
