Speech Title: Beyond the Stars
General Purpose Statement: To Persuade
Organizational Pattern: Problem, Cause, Solution
Specific Purpose Statement: To persuade to my audience that we as tax payers should fund NASA. Central Idea Statement: To persuade to my audience, that we as tax payers should fund NASA. By first, discussing why the majority tax payers don’t want to fund NASA, Second, by explaining the cause of not funding NASA, and finally, exploring the achievements NASA has created and improved that we all use today and the possibilities we could experience in our future if we were to fund NASA. Main Points:
I. Discussing why the majority of tax payers don’t want to fund NASA II. Explaining the cause of not funding NASA
III. Exploring the achievements NASA has created and improved that we all use today and the possibilities we could experience in our future if we were to fund NASA.
Tonight, I will be opening up my speech with a quote from a famous intelligent astronomer named Neil Tyson, in “Universe” History.com, November, 2011. He states, “Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe; we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us.” As an inspired college student, majoring in animal science, funding The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, also known as NASA to continue research in space could help increase our medicine for humans and animals. Also, not only does there research improve our medicine, they create and improve things you might uses every single day. So, tonight, I am going to persuade you that we as tax payers should fund NASA, by first, discussed the reasons the majority of tax payers do not want to fund NASA, second by, explaining the cause of not funding NASA, and finally, exploring the achievements NASA has created and improved that we all use today and the possibilities we could experience in our future if we were to fund NASA.. I. PROBLEM:
a. When it comes down to our hard working EARNED money, we all try to be smart about where we spend it. Most of us college students are working as hard as we can just to survive and continue our education. As a college student working two jobs, I understand why we tax payers might not want to fund NASA, but the more I have learned about the possibilities with funding NASA, I become more allowing of the idea. i. . Keith Cowing, on October 27, 2012, NASA WATCH,‘Taxpayers Don't Like NASA Funding Priorities.’ He states “ Most tax payers don’t believe we should fund NASA because they don’t think it’s that important to our societies and to our way of life. Why spend millions exploring mars or any planet in fact if it does not do any purpose to us tax payers here on earth” 1. Majority of tax payers do not want to fund NASA is because They don’t want to take a tax cut and they don’t realize that we all use things NASA was created or improved every day. Transition: Now, I have discussed a few reasons the majority of the tax payers don’t want to fund NASA, I will next explain the cause of not funding NASA. II. CAUSE:
b. ‘Finding Outing for SpaceX’ by Kenneth Chang, NEW York Times, October 7,2012, states that tax payers that dont want to fund NASA is slowing down their research...
