Rafael Trujillo was assassinated by Gen Imbert in 1961. After the assassination, Juan Bosch came into power. Early on everyone was rooting for Bosch, but soon realized that they wanted him out as soon as possible. After evil Rafael Trujillo’s assassination, instead of the Dominican Republic (DR) stabilizing, they faced troubles with their new leader. Juan Bosch 's reign was extremely short.
In conclusion,I believe that Andrew Jackson is not democratic. You may have read about how he was a very popular president and how he had 2 terms of presidency,how he is on our twenty dollar bill,etc, but no matter what good he did, his bad history will always have a black mark on his image. He acted more like a king than a president, he made his own rules and manipulated people to get what he wanted. In his whole lifetime, he had, obviously, done way more dictation than
During his presidency, he reduced the debt by $23 million. Many years before Jefferson became president, the Barbary states had sent pirates to attack and capture European and American ships, cargo, and sailors. They would then hold the crews for ransom and demanded large sums of money for safe passage. The US and European countries would routinely give into these demands because they knew it would cost less than war. Jefferson had opposed this from the beginning, so when he was president, he made it all change.
In 1952 the US got involved after Nicaragua solicited U.S. assistance to overthrow the Guatemalan leader, Jacobo Arbenz Guzman. President Truman authorized the shipment of weapons and money to anti-Arbenz groups. But, within five weeks the operation to topple Arbenz quickly fizzled when representatives loyal to the president uncovered the plot and took steps to solidify their power. Later Eisenhower sought to defend American interests abroad with an increase in funds for nuclear weapons and covert operations. After that, convinced that Arbenz threatened U.S. national security because of his alleged Communist sympathies, Eisenhower approved the first-ever clandestine military action in Latin America.
“Fidel Castro: The Political Leader of Cuba” states, “Castro had come to power with the support of most Cuban city dwellers on the basis of his promises…but once established as Cuba’s leader he began to pursue more radical ideas” (8). From this evidence, the article highlights Castro’s use of lies to gain the trust of the people. Castro had promised many things, including to reinstate the 1940 constitution, promote and honest administration, and reinstate civil and political liberties. These lies satisfied the emotional needs the people and their fears of another dictatorship. By promising the changes Cuba’s citizens wanted, Castro obtained control.
Then in 1835, a few renegade Cherokees wrote up a false treaty and gave it to Congress. Congress liked it so they passed the treaty by one vote; this treaty gave the Cherokees land and money in Oklahoma in exchange for their Georgia/Alabama land. John Ross and 16,000 Cherokees petitioned against this treaty, claiming it was false and made without their permission. In 1838 the US Army entered Cherokee lands and forced them off. On the walk to Oklahoma, up to 6,000 of the 16,000 Cherokees
On page 304, Dedé says, "smart young men and women making good money. They aren't like us, I think. they knew almost from the start they had to take on the world." This demonstrates the transformation of society after the Dominican Republic. After Trujillo's regime ended, The Dominican Republic became a more independent and free
Jackson being a “common man” was something he should be praised for not criticized for. Being a common man helped him relate to the American people. He understood the hardships they experienced and saw their struggle to gain power in the government because of the wealthy class. You said this was a bad thing because he wasn’t educated enough to run the government, but he was actually better educated through his experiences as a common man. He brings new ideas never seen or used before to balance the power between the wealthy and the poor.
In general I would say Richard Nixon was a fairly decent president. During a time where there were many protests amongst the American public (especially the youth) against the troops in Vietnam, Nixon was able to pull the troops out of the war. Nixon also reduced the tensions with the Soviet Union, and helped China join the United Nations. He also helped decrease the amount of racial discrimination by segregating schools in the south. It is a shame though, that those achievements of his are not acknowledged because of the Watergate Scandal.
Countering these threats, Castro formed an alliance with the Soviet Union and allowed the Soviets to place nuclear weapons on Cuba, sparking the Cuban Missile Crisis—a defining incident of the Cold War—in 1962. After negotiating, the missiles were removed with the US promise of never invading Cuba. Castro could now develop his political ideas without fear of a US invasion. As the Head of Cuban Armed Forces and later the Prime Minister of Cuba, he pushed through radically changing reforms such as the redistribution of wealth among the poor. Together with Che Guevara, Fidel Castro developed a new theory; The New Man's Theory, which was basically that Cubans should no longer work for personal benefits, but for the good outcome for everybody in the society.
