Without the Boston Tea party, would the American Revolution ever had happened? The Boston Tea party was what pushed both the Colonists and British, over the edge, to war. The British's unfair tax, and the American's over-the-top response, started the Revolution. The Boston Tea Party was the main contributor to the start of the Revolutionary War because it was followed by the Intolerable Acts, or the Coercive Acts, and then war. "
The Boston Tea Party was a main event of the Revolutionary war. With this act, the colonists started a violent part in the revolution. It was the first time a colonist rebelled violently against their own government. The Townshend Duty act passed taxes on lead, paint, paper and tea which lead to mass meetings being held where people would try to convince others to not buy English imported goods anymore.
The boston tea party is a huge part of the history of Massachusetts and the History of our country. First of all the Tea Party was one of the first steps in the American revolution. One could make the argument that without the Boston Tea Party we wouldn't have a country today. Secondly, it showed that the people who lived in the colonies were brave enough to stand up to the biggest country in the world. This is important because bravery to stand up for what you believe in became a theme of the revolution and a theme of America.
America is currently at a crossroad. The crossroad is a divide the country has not experienced since the years leading up to and throughout the Civil War. It is not as intense as the Civil War Era, because the outcome will not lead to secession. The division in the country is not about individual state’s rights for free labor or slave labor. The crossroad represents a path leading to a continued downfall of the United States or a change in direction to return America to greatness, as it was intended when formed.
Many will name different and more political reasons as to what the causes of “congressional gridlocking” is. My answer isn’t as political. I believe that one of the reasons for inaction is that congress is too stubborn. I believe that the government should learn to evolve and create new rules or balances to help pass laws to fix demanding issues. A more political solution or way to put it, I guess, is to use an example I found during my research.
One of the many debated issues between the Federalists and the Anti-federalists was whether a republican form of government could succeed in a country the size of the United States. This debate was actualized in the arguments of the Letters of Brutus and Federalist 10. In Federalist 10 Madison argues that a strong, large republic better protects against the dangers of factions. He says that factions are usually found in small republics because there is fewer diversity of opinion.
Occupy Wall Street and the Boston Tea Party: the two most powerful organized protests against unjust and corrupt economies of their time periods, both fought for similar reasons, while using different approaches. Composed of men and women tired of being part of a majority, oppressed, and kept in check by an extremely small minority that held all the power, these two groups took action against their oppressors, showing that they would not sit idly by while others took advantage of them. The Boston Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street were dedicated to bridging the power gap between the bourgeois and the proletariat and reclaiming the rights they both felt they believed that all humans were born with. However, these two groups, both took different
Congressional Caucus Chaos In “With Boehner’s Departure, Congressional Dysfunction Will Only Grow,” Norman J. Ornstein argues that a radical group in the Republican Party has kept progress from being made and John Boehner resigning from his Speaker of the House position will not make things on Capitol Hill any more productive. Ornstein says that, “The realists, like Boehner, understand that divided government requires compromise,” but unfortunately, extremists are unwilling and outright opposed to doing just that. Ornstein believes a successful upcoming congressional session does not have a chance at occurring and finds Radical Republicans to blame because they have made stopping President Obama’s plans a priority. I agree that one group of Republicans are keeping Congress from not only passing meaningful legislation on the controversial topics, but keeping them from passing common sense laws; however, I disagree with the author in regards to Congress staying on this uncivil, unproductive path.
The Ronald Reagan Era was an extremely powerful and important time in political history. It changed the way the entire Republican party thought. The conservatism article states that this era was so powerful that “political rivals were forced to respond to how influential and powerful” Ronald Reagan was. Through his influence with International affairs, his powerful speaking through the media, and his ability to work with his chairmen to create more innovative ways to have a better government, Ronald Reagan created a new Republican Party.
Events of American Conservatism in the 1980s Conservatism was on the rise during this influential decade. There were many people, including president of the time Ronald Reagan who believed that conservatism was the most direct and ideal way to govern the American people. Even though before the 1980’s many people quietly supported conservative ideals, it was an uncommon approach to government. Fading away slowly and coming back again, conservatism popularity completely hit the fan with the inauguration of Reagan, and later George H. W Bush.
Accounts of civil disobediences have made their way into the paper many times since the start of this country: the Boston Tea Party, Thoreau's refusal to pay a poll tax, and Rosa Park's decision to stay seated on the bus. All of these examples represent a time of distress when people responded in non-violence to prove a point. But many would ask if this is really proving a point or if it is simply disregarding the law and setting a bad example? Well let me ask you this: would it be better to sit back and to hope that someone will speak out about the problem, or to go forward in violence thinking that that is the only way to achieve something? It seems that an act of non-violence is a way of being heard without coming across as irrational or
