548 words - 3 pages

Lyndon Johnson's Political Affects Lyndon Johnson was raised in Johnson City, Texas where he had lived in a house with his mother, Rebekah Johnson, his father, Sam Johnson, and his four siblings. Growing up in a home with many people and being in the middle lower class would soon create many affects on the political career of our 36th President of the United States. There were many affects on Johnson's political career but his father's affect on his political career is the most important. Sam Johnson was a state legislator for twelve years and he was a popular participant in the Democratic Party and many campaigns. During these campaigns and many activities Johnson was right by his side. ...view middle of the document...

All of Rebekah's talks on oratory and debating techniques helped Lyndon to become a great influence on the ones that he taught about those matters. These also came into tie with the two main people that inspired him with greatness, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, where he was taught that judgments shouldn't be based on first impressions and that the power given to him should be used for the good of the public. The last and most important affect on Johnson's political career was that he was raised in a lower middle class family with not much, like the Kennedy's, to look forward to without earning it. This allowed Johnson later on to vote for the things that would help the country's people and support those that could not support themselves in the way that they should be able to. With his insight on the harshness of a low middle-class lifestyle it allowed him to relate to many of the people and fight for the rights that were FOR the American people and not AGAINST the American people. It gave him a look at America in a way that no other American President would have seen. In conclusion, there were only a few affects on Lyndon Johnson's political career but many of these affects had helped to make him the best President the United States has had because he was for the American people and understood the American people and he wasn't just another rich, fancy, President. Lyndon Johnson was the U.S President who worked hard for his earning and dreamed what he wanted and achieved it the right way because of his father, mother, childhood lifestyle, and two of America's most important citizens.
