the one proposing force, the other friendship; but it hath so far happened that the first hath failed, and the second”. He speaks on the fact that we would have had better relationships with more countries if we didn't have to be looped in with Britain. We would be able to make more money from trade, and becoming a more powerful nation with more allies. Paine believes that Britain treats their colonies horribly and that if they were a “parent” they wouldn't treat their children like slaves and brutes and that they wouldn't throw their child into war for something that's not their
They both wanted to promote world peace. However, Kennedy’s approach was more aggressive than Eisenhower because he was willing to pay at any price in the name of democratic safety while Eisenhower wanted a well-balanced spending towards nuclear development. For me, Kennedy’s presidential address was more applicable to Santyana’s saying when he was reminding the people of the world not commit the same mistake as other countries had, because if they followed countries led by dictatorship they will also end up being the victim of that tyrannical
Mr. Reagan identified the problems that the American people were facing as well as the apparent dangers associated with the spread of Communism and pressured Soviet interests through a process known as “roll-back”. The Reagan Doctrine was successful because it decreased the spread of Soviet influence, improved relations with the Soviet Union, strengthened the American economy, and finally put an end to the Cold
Although both Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson both were progressives, they used their powers in the federal government pretty differently from each other. Roosevelt often used the “bully pulpit” as a way to acquire his ambitions and goals as president. He was commonly known for using, and possibly overusing, his power as the president to get many laws and acts passed. Oppositely, Wilson made sure to get the approval of Congress before acting out of hand. However, both made sure that the old “invisible hand” economy was abolished by the necessary intervention of the federal government in the US economy.
The Populist Party wanted to limit the federal government through the direct election of US Senators. This would reduce the power of state legislators and return to a more democratic style of election. The Jacksonian Democrats and the Populist Party were almost identical in their concerns about the American economy in their respective times. Jacksonians were heavily influenced by Thomas Jefferson in the way that they saw America becoming a great agrarian nation that would have little industry.

The leader, Napoleon III, took a liberal stance, amnestying political exiles and reducing restrains on the press. The imperial dictatorship has been transformed into a constitutional monarchy.

Some of the things that he set out to do from the beginning of his term turned out to be a success but some of them were also failures. Some successes of Ronald Reagan’s presidency include his objective to restore the U.S armed forces. Reagan had great success in his foreign and defense policies. He was also able to put an end to inflation with supply-side economics. And he was able to lower income taxes for all, especially for those in the higher bracket.
The war with Great Britain was meant to end these taxations. Great Britain was trying to make us believe that we were paying for the debts, but really, they were taking our money and spending it while we were just getting poor. "We contended with Great Britain—some said for a three-penny duty on tea, but it was not that. It was because they claimed a right to tax us and bind us in all cases whatever. "We started a war with Great Britain because we wanted to end this taxation, and now that we are a lone country, the Constitution will tax us
To him, war was wasteful. He was committed to winning the cold war, but doing so without forcing the U.S into bankruptcy.

During the 1760’s, Britain needed to find a way to pay off their debt. This led to a reform that in part launched a plan designed by George Greenville (Schulz, 2013). Greenville’s plan was to implement acts that would help to pay off the nation’s debt. New acts, such as the Sugar, the Quartering, and the Stamp Act had colonists far and wide upset with Parliament. While each of these acts were disliked by colonists, none was as damaging as the Stamp Act.
Assessments of STOP ERA are mixed, with scholars acknowledging that the organization effectively utilized regional and state based sentiment to shift national public opinion against the once strongly supported Constitutional Amendment. To this end, there is broad agreement that without Schlafly and the STOP ERA campaign the Equal Rights Amendment would likely have been ratified in the 1970s. Schlafly 's campaign is also credited with shifting the Republican Party 's platform on the ERA and women in 1980, which led to a majority of that demographic supporting the Democratic Party by 1992. In addition, the STOP ERA campaign solidified Phyllis Schlafly 's position as an effective opponent of liberal policies, and one of the most significant women in modern American politics.
