Another big thing in Texas’ Executive branch. The Governor in Texas is considered a ‘weak governor’. They are referred as ‘weak governors’ due to the fact they have very little power, second to last when it comes to executive powers to be exact, but Texas governors are one of the nation’s most visible state officials and among the highest paid governor in the United States. When you think of Texas Governors most people think of George W. Bush, he was the governor of Texas before becoming the President of The United States. It would be nice to know how he felt about the differences in the Texas executive branch and the U.S. executive branch, since he was the head position in
The representatives elected by the people to conduct the affairs of the state with the support of the people. If they do not work well or do not meet the expectations of the people, the representatives may not have again in the next election. In this way, people do not need to revolt when wants change. That means the wishes of the public is the supporter of the parliamentary government and not based on fear of the authorities. Democracy stands on consensus and not on power; the citizens have the opportunity to take part actively in the
Many consider the Electoral College’s negative effect on third parties to be a good thing. Maintaining that our current two party systems provides the country with stability. Prevents a victory based solely on urban areas.People who favor the Electoral College claim that the current system prevents a candidate from wining by focusing solely on heavily populated areas.

Totalitarianism states use tight control over their citizens, by employing strict laws, not only for the public realm but as well as the private realm. They then use propaganda and police or military intimidation to inforce these laws. This can be interpreted as an advantage because it is argued that it is easy to rule under these conditions because voting and other exercise of a citizen’s freedom are not an inconvenience to governance. Totalitarianism establishes a strong government. As there is no condemnation, no opposition, all concentration is directed to the achievements of the arms of the state, which can quickly be achieved.
As the presence of a coalition was uncommon till now, new constitutional norms were created and old ones were revised. For the doctrine of ministerial accountability, it isn’t important how many parties run the government, but that it is still one government. The members of government should all adopt the same position to ensure certainty and confidence in the government. The coalition also had great effect on the prime minister’s power when appointing ministers. Instead of choosing ministers at his own discretion, Cameron had to consult Clegg about it.
This places a significant disadvantage as both of the houses effectively go through a different process to get the laws through, the concurrent passage arguably means there will be differences. However in the UK this is a advantage of the system as the House of Lords and Commons are more connected, this is because laws can “ping pong” between the two houses until both effectively agree. Unlike America it ensures that those who have more knowledge in either house can amend the laws and have more of a contribution whilst in America if a congressmen has more information or knowledge on the potential law the Senate will have less knowledge about this, this effectively makes the US system of making law less connected. Arguably the US system can be seen as an advantage because each house effectively examines proposals, thus there is more scrutiny and check and balances compared with the
“Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country” Franklin D. Roosevelt. Is America as Democratic as they make it out to be? Do they give their citizens the freedom to vote for who they want? Since 1886 it has been a fiercely competitive battle for the top seats in the American government, with only two main political parties realistically going to win.
Therefore, politicians who do well in impression management can get immediate political advantage compared to the others. It can help the politician to get favoured by the people or even win in the elections so that they can continue to serve the
