When the Founding Fathers were planning the country, each one had different ideas on what the country should be like. Some favored a strong central government, others saw that strength in the states would make for a better government. Most of the time, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison are seen as the two biggest influences, and opposing views on the role of the federal government. Jefferson opted for a weaker central government, with stronger states and more individual rights, while Madison favored a strong central government, and weaker states. Given that the country was founded on ideas of liberty and democracy, Thomas Jefferson is the more correct of the two.
Federalist V. Anti-Federalist Federalist and Anti-Federalist were two factions most commonly known for debating during the transition from the Articles of Confederation of the United States Constitution. Both sides debated many things, including the liberties of a citizen in the United States. I believe that the Anti-Federalist 's ideals best preserved the liberties of Americans. The Anti-Federalists believed that there were three defects of a large republic. First, only a small republic can enjoy a voluntary attachment of the people to the government and a voluntary obedience to the laws (Storing, 16).
Although the Progressive movement was highly influenced American politics, it was only effective during the terms of certain presidents and over certain people. Presidents such as Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt were all presidents that used the Progressive movement to influence American politics. They all believed that moral reform, an expansion of democracy, and regulation of the economy was the goal for America. Throughout all of their terms, each president changed and added to American society and politics based off of the Progressive view. Theodore Roosevelt was the first Progressive president who made huge adjustments to the American political system while in office.
While being close in ideas about conservation and worker rights, they differed when it came to domestic social issues. After the Progressive era, the power of corporations were reeled in, average citizens began to get more rights, and set up more preserves. Wilson remained behind on the rights of women and coloured people, while both him and Teddy were on the same level for Progressive reform on most other domestic
My view of stereotypes is probably skewed since I am primarily a Northerner, but I will try to remain objective. For example, southerners are typically depicted as friendly if you’re similar to them, but more conservative. Northerners are more accepting as a whole, and are generally more liberal. Another, easier way to distinguish Americans is to look at the conservative vs liberal debate. People who are conservative, typically devalue things that help make communities fully functional for all members.
Assess how different legislatures pass law? Whilst the system of how the UK and US passes laws is different, their purpose is the same which is to uphold democracy. Arguably the methods the UK and US use have significant flaws but they both also have their benefits. The system in the UK is considerably different due to its unbalance bicameral system compare to America.
The Republican and Democratic Parties in the United States have wide differences in their viewpoints and beliefs regarding same-sex marriage and the rights of transgender persons.

Totalitarian vs Liberal Democracy Characteristics: While contrasting Totalitarian versus Liberal Democracy characteristics it is fundamental to consider the advantages and bad marks of both the sorts of governments.
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 function of judicial review is not meant for specific cases but more importantly to guide the other two branches and we could say that thanks to this, the Supreme Court can actually modify laws to its preferences and interests. This is one of the main features that lead people to believe it is the most powerful branch of American government and even though it may sound extreme, we could very well say that the way the Supreme Court can declare something unconstitutional is unconstitutional
Hayes who was in the Republican party and Samuel J. Tilden who, opposite of Hayes, was in the Democratic party. The Electoral College was first developed with the constitution to serve as a compromise, because people thought Congress should elect the president while others thought the popular vote should have the decision. Each state has a minimum of three electors which is constructed of two senators and a representative. The more representatives a state has, the more electors granted. Although the popular votes do not determine the elector votes, it almost always happens where the electors vote for whom the popular votes resulted in.
The reason I mentioned that is bipartisanship means both parties have to come together but some time with parties they think bipartisan ship means one republican jumps on a mostly democrat bill or vice versa. That’s not bipartisanship at all what it is, is congressmen giving each other favors in order to pass a bill. There isn’t much give and take which means it’s not bipartisan. Also bipartisanship stops gridlock but if there are positions that one side feels that needs to be addressed it and it doesn’t then it pays off to be partisan.
As seen in Document A, it compares the Articles and the Constitution. For the executive branch, (the Constitution) had president administrators that enforce federal laws while (the Articles) only takes care when the Congress is not there. For the legislative branch, (the Constitution) a bicameral legislature where each state has equal representation in the Senate and each state has proportional representation in the House of Representatives thus fixing the issue of representation for small and large states. The Articles had a unicameral legislature where each state has one vote no matter what population they had which was unfair for the small states. The Constitution had a national court system that hears different cases while the Articles didn’t have that at all.
Both Federalists and Democratic-Republicans, have different opinions on how they want the Government to function. For example on page 292, Alexander Hamilton was representing the Federalists. Here are a few examples of what the Federalists had wanted, they wanted to rule by the Wealthy class, have a strong Federal Government, and want to have an Alliance with the British. There was also an issue with immigration because the immigrants had supported the ideals of the French Revolution, so the Federalists were not too excited about that. On the contrary, Thomas Jefferson was representing the Democratic- Republicans.
The two parties were the Republicans and the Federalists. The Republicans hoped government took a lesser approach to everyday life. Its individualistic perspective includes living in moderation, be tough, don’t spend more than you have to, and be honest. These lofty goals and ambitions were reasonable in the late 1700’s, early 1800’s, however, now most
