This includes the popular vote not being taken seriously as the people's wishes, the need for only 12 states to win and become president, and the neglection of other states and the attention given to the swing states. All represents that the Electoral college is not what is limiting the power of the government and giving the people what they want, but instead is what truly empowers the government and takes away the choice we Americans should have and posses. While this is what the electoral college is doing now the abolishment of the electoral college should take place in order to give the power back to the people. Do you want to keep living your life truly powerless in the decision of our next leader? Or do you want to give the power back to the people of the USA, and take back our power to choose the right
In this essay written by Thomas Jefferson, Jefferson announces the separation of the thirteen colonies from Great Britain because of their controlling manner over their freedoms and life itself. Throughout his statement, Jefferson begins to mention the start of the nation’s new start and how no man should have to be completely controlled by their government or treated differently when every man should secure all their given rights as a human being. Jefferson then went on to explain that when a government becomes destructive or harmful to it’s people, the people should then completely abolish the government or find a way to alter it to create a new fresh government that is for it’s people, not against.
We need a president that will the extra mile to end a war and not encourage one. We need a president that will lower the poverty rate and increase the job rate. We need a president that can and will do everything for the people that will make the correct and moral decisions to better the country. We need a Hilary Clinton. Because if Hilary Clinton than who?
I Believe that the power should belong to the people of this country. We as a nation should have a say on who is president or any part of our government, we are the land of the free and if we did not have a say in who was running our country then how free would we be? The part of Madison’s number 39 that I agree with the most is, that “the president can be impeached at any time (Madison 2008).” The president holds a lot of power and is the main face of our country so if he is doing something that is a disgrace or trying to have more power then he/her has then they should be able to be impeached at any time for their actions. Madison also goes on to talk about Judges and “The tenure by which the judges are to hold their places, is, as it unquestionably ought to be, that of good behavior (Madison 2008).” I agree with this statement they also have an important job and should be held to high standers in order to keep their position as a judge. We elect these people to do a good job and expect them to do so, and it is nice to know that if we can’t count on them they will lose their position they have.
Electoral college argument Does the electoral college make the elections unfair or sway in one direction more than the other? After the fall of the A.O.C the founding fathers decided to write up the constitution and rework their government and in doing that they created the electoral college to help with the elections. Should we remove the electoral college and go to popular vote? The electoral college should be abolished due to the fact that some vote count more than others depending on where you live, The state have made up their mind on who they vote so we already know who is going to win before the election happens, and if the vote come to a tie we leave it to the house of representatives to vote and everybody else's vote goes away and does not matter. With the electoral college in place we see that some states have more power than others when it come to the vote depending on their size and the amount of senators they have.
As of now you are the future president of The United States of America. With that title comes the responsibilities such as controlling foreign affairs, economic issues, and upholding civil rights. With all that said, you can see why it took many by surprise when you used “Twitter” as a means of spreading the message that in a situation where the burning of the American flag takes place, consequences like being jailed for one year and being striped of citizenship should be inforced. Although having pride in one’s nation is important, the act of flag burning should not be punishable; therefore, flag burning should be respected as a form of free expression. To begin it is important to note, that flag burning is and has been since the beginning, protected by the U.S Constitution.
it was the first american democracy and it formed the constitution because it was a minnie example of what the gornmeto the new united states The Mayflower Compact shows the idea of Self-Government. Self-government means the Mayflower Compact it show democris as they would always agree on the laws and rules. this means that the people or in that time free white men would vote on dicins and leaters. so ery thing would be fair for them. because they moved to get away from britain and its strict rules and strict unfair leader.
If you have two legs that work and you can get to your precinct then you can vote it is as simple as that. “ Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”Franklin D. Roosevelt. You have not only a right to vote but a responsibility to vote . So whether you support Trump or Hillary during this election or you think both of them are terrible candidates (like me) you still need to get out and vote. Your vote can change the legacy of this nation for future generations to see.
Other systems like run-off election and direct popular vote show a better picture of what the people want. In “One Vote For The Electoral College" the author goes into detail and explains direct popular election. “This successful and satisfactory system, one that has worked with only a few close calls, would dissolve with the abolition of the Electoral College, exposing the nation to dangerous forces that could tear it apart” (Turner 414). Besides the direct popular election, there is also the run-off election. It is functioned around making sure the people’s vote does not go to waste.
Democracy is a political system in which it restricts the government and enlarges the people, this also expands the power of the citizens. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the impact that the Bill of Rights has had on advancing democracy in the United States. The Bill of Rights is a collection of the first ten amendments of the U.S constitution that are used to protect our civil rights and liberties. According to Goldstein (1988) "Beginning with the words "Congress shall make no law ...," these amendments limited only the power of the federal (not the state) governments." But there are many cases that overthrow this believing.
In this pamphlet, Thomas Paine explained the advantages of independence. He convinced the people that ones America get independence then all the citizens of the country will get change to elect their government. Addition to this, new government will also take back all the controversial laws imposed by the British government. It will remove all the trade restriction from the Americans. According to Thomas Paine, it was nonsensical for an island to rule a continent.
