In Two-Party systems, it needs to be 51%. 34% is not the majority of the people, whereas 51% is. This detail highlights that if we were ever to transfer smoothly to a different system, a party would not be chosen particularly by the bulk of the citizens. This would create more disruption in the country, which is definitely not needed
Is Gerrymandering a Controversial Topic? Gerrymandering is a process where the ruling political party uses the map of their state to draw lines that create voting districts in favor of their party. The result of this is that it doesn’t reflect the voters political views. For about 200 years the government has used gerrymandering during political elections and it continues to be used today (King, Elizabeth) . But recently gerrymandering has become more controversial because people feel that it has taken away their rights as a voter and it swings the votes to one side by a big percentage.
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?
My imperialist’s argument is why did the Anti-imperialists want a third ticket and what does it say about the Democrats ticket Bryan. Also how they feel about the Spanish-American war and because they were sure McKinley will be reelected as President, because Bryan was tied up in things that the consent of the country cannot support. It is understood that the action of the independents are taking to get a person on the ticket, but it all depends on what the Anti-imperialists conference does. A committee was appointed to visit Tomlinson Hall conference and outline the plan of the league to join in the national third ticket movement. Why are U.S. soldiers and sailors fighting under a British Admiral?
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.
This is first shown when Hazel states she believes she would make a good Handicapper General, George responds to her by saying she’d be “Good as anybody else,” due to the fact that nobody can be better than anybody at anything. This is especially prejudicial against politicians because they will not be able to have progressive ideas. If everyone who runs for office must wear handicaps that forces them to be the same as everybody else in the nation it forces a state of stagnation of ideas for the country. Another example of the culmination of positive change is presented during a conversation between Hazel and George. George compares competition to the dark ages by saying “If I tried to get away with it, then other people'd get away with it—and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else.
Without competitiveness, we would lose many battles. If people were not competitive, there would be no reason to try to prove a point or anything because that takes being competitive. Even the president is competitive. he or she has to be because they have a rival they have to compete against. There is competition in every election.
Presidential candidates have different beliefs and values however the most basic form of respect did not occur during the campaign, just like in the movie “Freedom Writers” the most basic form of respect was not shown. Each party, the democrats and republicans, did not use their parties values to help unite the country. No matter what one believes, and before he has even been in office, there are many that are angry and have been rioting based on judgement about Donald Trump. This can be compared to the movie where the students judged each other simply on race and not having a true understanding of who they are and their situation. Judging others based on fear, race or religion is a significant issue that needs to be solved so that our county’s future has more peace than hate.
Trent Franks, U.S. house representative, said that “If Donald Trump is our nominee, I don 't think that he represents the best our party has to offer either in temperament or qualification, and I think he 's the weakest candidate that is in the race at this point in terms of the general election. I follow Trent Franks on this and also think he is not fit to be president. Donald Trump also said horrible things like “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me - consciously or unconsciously. That 's to be expected.” This demeaning manner should not be tolerated in the U.S. Was it making America great again to vote for Trump? Or was America great before he
The second aim was that they wanted to change the monarchy into a republic or a democracy. Unfortunately they were not able to create a monarchy, but it ended with the dictatorship of Napoleon Bonaparte. The Glencoe World History textbook states, “ …The National Convention’s first major step on September 21 was to abolish the monarchy and establish a republic…” This shows how they were going on the right track and that this aim was about to be a success and if this aim would have succeeded then this revolution could have been one of the most successful revolutions, but unfortunately the dictator Napoleon comes in and takes control. History.com states, “After seizing political power in France in a 1799 coup d’état, Napoleon crowned himself emperor in 1804.”
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.
If you have lived in Texas you would have to vote for a slate of 34 Democratic electors. Anyone can be elected as the electors that are going to be voting for you. Voters can sometimes get confused about who to vote for and vote for the wrong candidate. Electoral college is unfair to voters. Because of the winner take all system candidates don 't spend time in states they don 't have a chance of winning, focusing only on the tight races in the “swing” states.
This election is one of about four Presidential elections that have won with Electoral College but not with the majority of popular votes. The states “winner-take-all basis may need to be reviewed and modified. I understand the reason behind this idea of the political party having the
Changes to the United States Constitution To better connect with 21st century cultural needs and the political wishes of the people, I would amend the constitution by doing away with the electoral college, adding in an equal rights amendment that encompasses all people regardless of any criteria, and by making the district of Columbia a state as well as granting them the right to vote in Congress. These changes are essential to the rapidly changing times that we live in and are necessary to keep all United States citizens happy with the government. Abolishing the electoral college would greatly benefit the United States. The electoral college is unfair and unconstitutional because the people of the United States do not elect presidents, states
Did you know that on election day you do not vote directly for president. Many people don’t like that they don’t ultimintly decide for president. They however don’t understant that it is there for a quite a few reasons. The first is that the founding fathers created the electoral college, second that it ensures that every state gets a say in who the president is, and number three is that it makes sure that the president is chosen by a majority vote and not a popular vote. When the founding fathers built this country they made the electoral college so that the presadent could be picked by an educated population.
