Hia actions reflect to his government. Harrison wanted to overthrow his government because of the way they express themselves in the government. They want to keep everyone equal including the way the people think. Harrison hates that so he wanted to overthrow the government. Equality and his people are already average, people uneducated, people not knowing how their minds process things.
• Chapter 6: R. Maynard Hutchins: Bringing “The Higher Learning to America, pg. 111-129 Robert Maynard Hutchins was described as being a very enthusiastic, charismatic, and persuasive leader. Despite his young age and limited experience, his youthful passion and potential shined through. I think this can relate to the idea of how age does not necessarily have a clear positive correlation with wisdom since young people can be wise and intelligent as well. 00oHe also thrived off of debating with other people and I think this quality alone can be considered either a good or bad thing.
In this introduction, he shows how the media have affected the result of election. He also mentioned that Fox news director who directed election news is Bush’s cousin. This detail implied to audiences the ambiguous in the way media influent people’s decision and result of the election. Then he continues to show objecting the result and a protest in Bush’s inauguration day. At this point, he remarks to viewers that this is a controversial presidency.
Williams suggests that the founders thought that the Electoral College was a sensible plan, but things don’t always work out how they should (28). It is a relic of America’s predemocratic past when leaders were scared of having too much power over the people (Klinker, McClellan 1). Congressional Digest suggests that we are stuck in a time warp (31). We still rely on a horse-and-buggy election system in the age of the internet (Congressional Digest 31). Congressional Digest points out the fact that voters today know more about the candidates than they did 200 years ago (19).
Congressmen aren’t elected through a slate of people voted by citizens to vote for citizens, so why is the president? If the government is truly to be by the people, why can this happen? If the answer is, it isn’t, that’s not the way the founders intended it, then we shouldn’t use a hastily created system made by people who came from a time when the common man was illiterate. It was a system created because the founders believed that the average person couldn’t truly be trusted electing the leader, so they created a system to separate their decisions from how the president is picked. Whether or not the founders were
In today’s society think about what if equality was not a law and consider what if there was no one to fight for equality in America. If there was no such thing as equality then no race would be equal to another. Also everyone would be treated different and be discriminated by a certain group of race. Not having equality would change the country because there would be no way of life because a certain group would think something is right while another group would disagree with the group's beliefs. This would change history because the leaders would have not say or take action for what they believe in.
The citizens do not know if the politician that wins the race will use the power they received to the best interest of the nation or country. Shakespeare deals with political power in his play by showing that just like in politics today there is a leader, or the president, who associates themselves with the conspirators, or congress, to make the laws of the nation, or country. Also, that a party that they are associated with can also cause the leader, or president, to lose their power and even their life, because their associate want their power. Grassley argued that "no one -- not even the President -- is above the law," and asked Gorsuch if it would be problematic for him to decide against the President. "That's a softball, Mr. Chairman," Gorsuch responded.
In fact, if the Electoral College system was not in the Constitution, it would undoubtedly be removed due to it being unconstitutional, because using the electoral votes violates the principle of one-person, one-vote. (Black, 2012) So, while it is clear that the Electoral College was set up to ensure all states have a voice, it now seems to have the ability to take away the voice of the people. It is necessary to look at our voting process and make the necessary changes needed to ensure the process of electing our President represents the voice of the people. By switching to a majority vote we ensure that the voice of all people are not only heard, but are represented equally, which is how it should be under the one-person, one-vote
“One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace, good people don 't go into government” (Trump). Into a positive mentality such as “Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the
Two of the candidates I questioned believe that yes, the United States of America has swung too far away from its heritage of liberty in its quest to up the security of our country. They believe this because with all the dangerous things happening in the world like terrorists attacks, school shootings, child abductions, hate crimes, etc. have caused this nation to focus on protecting the states and have lost its sight on our heritage of liberty. The last candidate I spoke with disagreed and said she didn’t believe our nation was swinging too far away from its heritage of liberty over our nations’
Well, in the second paragraph in the Declaration of Independence, it states: “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,” but, this doesn’t mean that we can just revolt. There has to be a logical reason, and just not agreeing with the president does not call for a revolution. Even our founding fathers knew that when they wrote this historical document. I think that although people don’t always agree with the president, it doesn’t mean that they have the right to call for revolution, and it certainly doesn’t give them the right to hurt those who support him. But, those who do support him, need to work on explaining it to those who don’t and they have to learn not to hurt those who support Clinton.
If we look at most of our opinion when it comes to voting comes from the band wagon affect these days. Media often sways people’s perception on the candidate. I believe that voting doesn’t do us any good when it comes to electing the President of the United States of America or anyone elected to State Represenitive, Governor, or state local official. No matter who get the most popular vote or majority of the votes, the Electoral College always wins. To me this makes voting it senseless to me since the candidate that the American people have voted for will not get elected because of the Electoral College.
In this day and age people are most concerned with being politically correct. A person must be aware of what he or she says and be sensitive to other people 's religious affiliations and cultures. The controversy of the Battle flag is affecting politicians directly in the upcoming elections. Nia-Malika Henderson, Senior Political Reporter, says that, “The flag debate is quickly becoming a major political issue ahead of the state 's crucial first-in-the-South presidential primary next year. Many Republicans, including Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, have avoided taking a position on the flag.” (Henderson) Citizens of America are taking sides on the Battle flag controversy and that plays a major part in how the voters will choose their leaders in the upcoming elections.
The main criticism that “the current two-party system gives too much power to the extremists in each party” (Wheelan, 2013, para. 2). When people are chosen by the party to run, in many cases they represent the extremist views held and become the mascot for the party. The current system is skewed so moderates, the people some say are essential to politics, are not chosen because they do not represent the party strongly enough. These extremist candidates help to discourage education of the intricacies of individual issues because voters are forced into accepting how the party views the issue, due to either voting due to the candidate 's party affiliation, or being forced into choosing the extremist that comes closest to their own personal beliefs.
This document was directed towards the Federalist by the antifederalist to explain a possible problem of the checks and balances system, after the drafting of the constitution and awaiting approval. The Anti Federalists didn’t want what we have now,they didn’t want the federal government to have and influence over citizens’ lives, they didn’t want the govt to in any way resemble a monarchy because they had just escaped from the corrupt monarchy. They believed that if the power in the country occupied in the people of the various states, then their vision would have a chance of success. Likewise, the Anti Federalist thought there was no bill of rights, so they disliked the constitution. Every constitution should have one for the people, and the government shouldn’t refuse to give on, as shown on Document E. The Letter to James Madison, Objections to the Constitution was written by Thomas Jefferson to explain what he disliked about the constitution to one of the writings, after the constitution was drafted and were awaiting ratification.
