A political campaign for election

You will need to identify a political candidate or current politician and prepare a campaign proposal that could be successfully employed in the Australian political context. The campaign proposal needs to be targeted at a local, state or federal election. The campaign proposal should be written in a report format and should include the following sections:

Introduction (introduce the candidate and their political values)

• The candidate’s political philosophy

• The seat/electorate the candidate will contest

Stakeholders and Issues Analysis (identify the strategic stakeholders and publics relevant to your chosen candidate) 

• Identify the local issues affecting the electorate and key strategic stakeholders

• Identify the national and international issues and policies affecting the electorate

A political strategy for the candidate

• Highlight the issues on which the candidate should campaign

• Highlight the different tactics the candidate should use and how these will support the overarching strategy of the relevant political organisation

• Set objectives and goals which can help define the campaign’s success

• Other issues and problems the candidate might encounter and how these can be managed

• Third party allies that might be mobilised to support the campaign

• Schedule/timeline of how this campaign might unfold in the lead up to the next election

Conclusion

• Measuring success (how will success be determined?)

Further advice:

Students should conduct independent research into political campaigns, parties and politicians and use this to inform their proposal. Students should identify the values of their political candidate and the local, regional and national issues facing their electorates on which a politician can campaign.

Case One

       Brenda and Tom, an African American couple in their mid 30’s, have been together for 10 years, married for 7 years.  They have no children.  Brenda reports concern that the marriage is not fulfilling. In the beginning of their relationship, Brenda desired Tom physically, emotionally and sexually. She states, “I  felt we had the perfect relationship”. About 5 years ago, Brenda wanted to start a family, but Tom did not want any children. She was hurt and angry and found herself withdrawing from Tom. At this time, she is no longer attracted to her husband.   She expresses confusion regarding her desire to remain in the relationship.  She is tearful and anxious throughout the session. 
        Tom agrees with the feeling of distance in the relationship. Tom states, “we were so good with each other in every way imaginable.”  He reports confusion regarding Brenda’s “intense” reaction to his not wanting children as they discussed this before they got married. Tom expresses a desire to strengthen their relationship and to re-kindle their romance and love.
       The couple has sought counseling to find resolution and direction. As the therapist, you are wondering if their relationship can sustain their differences.

Case Two

Maria is a 25-year-old Latina who self identifies as a cisgender lesbian. Her partner Irene is a 28-year-old Chinese American who self-identifies as non-binary, bi-sexual. The couple has been together for 5 years in a monogamous relationship.  Maria reports that the relationship started on rocky grounds. Irene had been in a 2-year relationship with a man when they met. The attraction was immediate and they wound up having an affair.  Eventually, Irene ended the relationship with the man she was dating, and the couple moved in together.  Maria feels that she and Irene were able to resolve their differences and develop a trusting and loving relationship. In the last year, Maria has sensed that Irene is distant, both sexually and emotionally. She feels that Irene is intentionally starting arguments so that she has an excuse to leave the house. Maria suspects that there is someone else in Irene’s life.
      Irene does not deny that there is another person in her life, but refuses to disclose any details.  Irene reports that over the past year, she has become bored in the relationship with Maria, that their sexual life had become “stale”.  Irene states, “when Maria and I met, it was exciting to be sneaking around and being a little naughty. But I soon fell in love with her and wanted to build a life together. Then routine set in, intimacy was predictable and sex was no longer fulfilling. I asked Maria if she would be willing to have an open relationship so that we could date other people or include variety in our sex life. She was adamantly against this, so I took matters into my own hands.
              The couple has sought counseling to find a mutual satisfactory compromise. As the therapist, you are wondering if trust and commitment issues are resolvable given their different relationship values.

Hello Hiba, thank you for making changes. I provided you with more improvements, especially in your problem statement. Please add more statistical information to strengthen it. Also, use all data from those states. Only 100 would be for qualitative analysis. You can determine your minimum number of data using Gpower. Your research questions are good.

Assessing the Relationship Between Illegal Immigration, Drug Trafficking, and an Open Border.

Problem Statement

The problem to be addressed in this study is if there is a relationship between illegal immigration, open border, and drug trafficking. Illegal activities such as drug trafficking and illegal immigration occur when there is a lack of border control (Cha, 2020). Open borders affect society, law enforcement, public safety, and government. It also allows people from any country to enter the United States without background checks and provides the perfect environment for terrorism. It is possible that having an open border will make it easy for criminals from other nations to enter this country (Hikmatullo Ogli, 2020). There is a challenge in an open border when immigration agencies fail to regulate people entering the country. According to Molobe & Odukoya (2021), increased cases of drug trafficking occur when people smuggle drugs cross an open border. For example, in FY2021, CBP seized 624,500 pounds of drugs compared to the fiscal year 2020, the cocaine seizures increased by 68%; Methamphetamine seizures increased by 7%; Heroin seizures decreased by 6%; Fentanyl seizures increased by 134% (Seagren, 2020). 

The open border is a problem with poor policies regulating the immigrants entering the country and the probable illegal channels they use to penetrate (Hikmatullo Ogli, 2020). There is an interconnection between the open border, drug trafficking, and illegal immigration since one leads to another, and addressing the open borders would help solve the other issues.

Purpose Statement

The purpose of this quantitative study is to examine if there is a relationship between open borders, drug trafficking, and illegal immigration. The methodology will be quantitative with a case study design. Publicly accessible databases, for example, United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Department of Homeland Security, and other peer-reviewed resources will be used to generate data. The independent variable will be open borders, while the dependent variables are illegal immigration and drug trafficking. This data will include information from California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. The proximity of these states to the border between the United States and Mexico makes them excellent locations for carrying out research and gathering data (Goneppanavar et al., 2019).

The researcher will use a systematic sampling method to pick files that contain incidents of drug trafficking. All the data from the peer-reviewed resources, DHS, and CBP databases between the years 2010 and 2020 will be used for the study. Prior to data collection, IRB approval will be requested. Data will be analyzed using the SPSS software program. An Analysis of variance (ANOVA) will be performed to prove or disprove the relationship between the dependent and independent variables. The researcher will determine based on the p-value which hypothesis will be accepted or rejected.

This research is important, especially for policymakers, to evaluate current information and the need for immigration policy changes and enforcing drug trafficking. In addition, it provides an in-depth analysis of illegal immigration and the chain of distribution for illegal drugs in the United States due to the open borders (Izcara Palacios, 2019). The findings would represent a significant advance in comprehending the difficulties posed by open borders and the impact that this has on the illegal trafficking of drugs and immigration into the United States.
