1. What is essential to the “preservation of liberty?” How should this “be so constituted?” The powers of government must be separated in order to preserve liberty To do this, the members of one branch should have little to no power over the selection of members of another branch This separation of powers ensures that no one branch gains control of the other two branches The people should have control and elect who fills most offices 2. Explain the following: “A dependence upon the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.” Man has the tendency to put his ambitions first and be greedy The government is made up of man; therefore there must be Constitutional safeguards restricting the actions of powerful government
Washington would see that individual communities and movements have created change for themselves, while working against others. It’s amazing what could be done if we stopped working against each other. While political parties aren’t going away, which would be to Washington’s dismay, he would suggest that the next president figure out a way to stop the two main parties, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, from being convinced their beliefs are the “correct” beliefs. If we cannot get rid of political parties, the best we can do is unite them. The only way to change our country is by working with each other, not against each other.
“If this system was so framed as to command that respect from the people, which every good free government will obtain, this provision was unnecessary” (Brutus 4). •People will not support laws that the magistrates carry out by themselves and shouldn’t be expected to, since it is a free government. •The right of election is given by the people, but the Congress has the power to change the time, regulations, and place of the elections. •If the federal government moves the elections to the capital, only the high-ranked people from the society would be able to attend and they would choose people from the same class. People from the interior parts are excluded from the election process, and the representatives of state will be elected by 1/10 of all the votes.
It is possible to manipulate the software to produce fraudulent results although the companies that produce the machine protect their software against fraud. iii. Protection for voters and their votes In order to vote, voters have to provide their personal information to the system. Keeping voter information safe has becomes the problem and also the voters has no way confirming there votes. OPTICAL SCANS BALLOT When to use: Presidential elections Where to use: United States or any countries that need to vote for elections How to
Gerrymandering is a strategic way of making sure party members get what they want when it comes to voting. As citizens, the only thing that we can do to help fight against gerrymandering would be to use our legislative powers and fight for more transparent and public system within their states to hold elected officials accountable. Even if we were able to fix gerrymandering, it still would not be enough to fix gridlock. If we were able to fix gridlock, it still would not solve close to any of the problems rooted in Washington. It seems as though we are waiting for the problems to fix themselves, but we need to realize it isn't a problem that can fix itself.
May states “His outrage at the ludicrousness of sociopolitical fads and the stupidity of the people who support them are both at play in this story.” (May). People in society will allow themselves to be controlled by the government, but never think about how the people actually run the government because they're here to serve the people needs. People today can vote on who they believe seem beneficial for their needs. Their need to be a change to where there's more flexibility for people to rotate their schedule around. A true patriot are the ones who oppose, the ones who don’t just go along, those who follows truth and righteousness and try to pass it along to the society.
There are a couple of different groups that want this; one of these is the people that identify as liberals. They believe that people should censor what they say so they do not offend other people or to get rid of racism (“Political correctness”). This would be fine if they didn 't want to take away all opposing opinions and not let people say what they want to say or do what they want to do. Another group that wants censorship is the people who want the government to have more power over its citizens. They want this so they can’t be stopped if they want to take all the power.
Where they were born doesn’t matter. Who they love doesn’t matter. So why must we discriminate against these things? My biggest fear with this presidential election is that our values will worsen. With the person elected having morally questionable views about these people being the face of our country, how will the youth react?
Americans ask, “Why do we vote?” It’s really a silly question isn’t it? This is a serious issue, many people believe that their vote doesn’t count and will not affect the presidential election. These people then complain about the way things are. “Your vote is your voice.” Americans vote to tell all government officials and “lawmakers how they feel about education, public safety, social security, health care, and other important issues.” The entire community depends on voting to change and add in new rules, change things within our community. Voting puts change into effect.
If the voting system wasn't anonymous i'm sure the election would have been different. This is the opposite of what was needed for the fight for equality. We now have a leader that is against the fight for equality, and the worst part about it is that he doesn't think he is a racist. This is related to the American Law assignment that I had to do, no one thinks they are prejudice they just
McCloy tried to argue that political donation is part of political participation which is protected by implied freedom of political communication. His argument has been rejected by all judges based on the model of representative government. because of the high risk of corruption the joint judgement argued that discrimination between property developers and general public in terms of political donation is legitimate. Despite the ICAC report on cases of corruption of property developers and the fact that the property developers directly benefit from the decisions made by government, Nettle raise the discrimination factor to argue that the restriction on property developers should be
Question two As the chairman for the Republican National Convention and knowing that Buckley V Valeo decision will not be soon changed, I would argue against changing the current campaign system in the most spectacular way. I would get on air and frame as the case as the liberal media trying to suppress free speech. I would attack the media on its double standards and vendetta against businesses. The press demands to know the inner working of institutions, yet it hardly respects other people’s right to assemble nor does it promote candidates that reflect the views of people whom want to make America great. The first amendment guarantees the right to assemble even in secret.
Yes and No. Yes as in the government should become more aware due to various political calculations in looking to take action. No, because I wouldn 't want the government to take action purely based off a calculation and non-facts or more so accurate calculations. Like such as, just because polls from a conservative based population show that ISIS is their number one concern in America doesn 't mean Obama should notify the branches to rally the troops
When a person casts a vote they are taking the chance that enough people will vote the same way as them in order to accomplish their goal. The problem with this is that “Even voting for the right is doing nothing for it,” (Thoreau 430), when they are on the side of the minority. Thoreau believed that because of this people should do more than vote and take a stand. In order to show his objection to the war for instance, he decided not to pay taxes that would go to fund it, and encouraged others to do that same. Furthermore, I am partly in agreement with Thoreau, “… I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government,” (Thoreau 425).
Second Response Paper Interest group politics is the attempt by any organized group in society to influence government policy through normal extra-electoral channels like lobbying or advertising. Interest group politics is intertwined with electoral politics; the main difference is that interest groups do not seek to win political office. Interest groups are held together by the shared interests and goals of their members. Whereas there are any numbers of potential interest groups, narrow economic interests are better represented in the system than broader political or moral concerns. (Cengage) The chapter solely focuses on the impact of interest groups in American politics.
