How serious was Plunkitt about patriotism’s connection to obtaining a job after Tammany won an election? First, I would like to tell you who Plunkitt and Tammany are. His real name was George W. Plunkitt. Plunkitt was born on November 17, 1842. Plunkitt was a millionaire. He was also involved in politics. He was a politician from the New York State. He also served in “both houses of the New York State Legislature”. He was also “a vehement critic of the Civil Service”. He was a master in machine politics. And as for Tammany, it is NOT A PERSON. It is really called Tammany Hall. “Tammany Hall, also known as the Society of St. Tammany, the Sons of St. Tammany, or the Columbian Order, was a New York City political organization founded in 1786 and incorporated on May 12, 1789, as the Tammany Society”. Plunkitt was in charge of Tammany Hall for a time until he died on November 19, 1924; two days after his eighty-second birthday.
Plunkitt was a very powerful man. Here is why. Whether he was in or out of office, he did his best to find jobs for the people. Because he did this the people remained loyal and subject to Plunkitt, and that is how he got his power he had years ago. It is very impressive how he became a powerful man just by gaining the trust of the people by helping them find jobs. It is also a very smart idea on how to become a powerful person. He must have been a very smart person. It is also amazing that he could find jobs for the people or find people who could find jobs for the people. I think finding jobs for people is a weird, but efficient way to gain power and help people at the same time.
Patriotism is supporting one’s country. The country is not the land, or the government, but the people. Plunkitt’s idea of supporting one’s country (or people) is to find them jobs, in or out of office. Like if he had an open spot in anything for anyone who wanted to take it and he new someone who was jobless, than he would give that job to the jobless person, and he did that so that people would think that he was a very good person so they would remain loyal to him and that is how he got his power. As I said before, I think finding jobs for people is a weird, but efficient way to gain power and help people at the same time. It is also very creative.
How serious was Plunkitt about patriotism’s connection to obtaining a job after Tammany won an election? He was so serious about it that it did not matter if he was in office or out of office, or if he was rich or not, he tried to find people jobs because he thought that that was how patriotism worked, which it basically did, but that is how serious Plunkitt was about patriotism.
