In “The Nullification Crisis”, Jackson proves to the people that he is a strong leader because he nullified the federal law. Jackson was a strong leader who wanted America to be a united nation under the Constitution, which would help keep democracy strong. In “The Trail of Tears”, Jackson removed the American Indians out of their territory to make more room for agriculture in the United States. This was an unkind act towards the American Indians, but he was right in his thinking because if he did not expand the United States to have that land, the United States would not be the united nation it is today, with its vast territory. Because Jackson showed his strong leadership and unity of the United States, that can conclude that Jackson promoted democracy during his presidency of the United
It could not have been a worst time for such a weak diplomatic leader. Johnson’s temperament allowed the momentum of Kennedy’s plan with Kennedy’s holdover advisors and his personal hard nosed determination to fight Communism would only lead to the escalation of Vietnam (Hamby 1992, 267). And therefore the obscuring of this massive influx of new social programs that introduced a greater role for the government. Overshadowing the very controversial Vietnam War, the legacy of the Great Society is not just how a massive number of social legislative action changed the role of the government’s responsibility concerning poverty, medical care and educations. The Great Society was truly a legislative dream beyond any liberal’s imagination.
The Containment Policy was created by George Kennan in 1947 and was the United States’ main method of fighting against the Soviet Union during the Cold War (https://history.state.gov/milestones/1945-1952/kennan). Because the Americans were very against the idea of communism, the containment policy was needed to help stop the spread of communism growing into other countries. The United States wanted more allies, and so provided resources to multiple countries to stop them from falling to communism gained their trust. The containment policy largely contributed to the Cold War because it formed the Marshall Plan, which helped to shape the NATO and the Truman Doctrine made the war more stressful.
World War II also led to more hard times in America, and Roosevelt helped lead America through it. Because WWII came in the midst of the Great Depression, Roosevelt was already busy. In order to contribute to the war effort against the Japanese and growing Nazi forces, Roosevelt helped allied countries by sending relief to places like Britain, which is only miles away the Nazi regime(Lend-Lease Act,2009). This Allied forces combat against the Axis powers until the American could fully commit to joining the war with infantry. Once this commitment happened American troops landed in Europe and helped fight against the enemy, and also contributing to the biggest battle in history, the D-Day Invasion.
The Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves in states that had seceded from the Union, areas which Lincoln had no control over. Lincoln used politics in this situation because people were not completely open to abolition just yet but this move opened the door for the conversation, and made the Civil War a moral fight. Lincoln also used politics
At the end of the war, America won which resulted in the British not impressing the Americas and also Madison receiving more fame for taking a good risk. Overall when Madison was president he was able to stop the impressment of Americans and win the war of 1812. James Madison was a political figure who was the main writer of the constitution, Secretary of state, and the president. Without Madison, America would be much different than it is today. He was truly a gift from God when he led America to war with Britain and though the writing of the constitution.
Jefferson was determined to approach each political obstacle sensibly, as demonstrated by the Tripolitan War, and truly believed that the future of the American society depended on the integrity of the common people. Due to the emerging threat of the Napoleonic Wars and the rise of a bitter Aaron Burr, Jefferson experienced a much more difficult second term in office, and as a result saw a slight shift in the concepts of his political philosophy. Once a steadfast supporter of a strict interpretation of the Constitution, Jefferson’s second term saw a slightly more liberal approach to the analysis regarding the Constitution, as shown by his fury regarding the trial of villain Aaron
However Johnson did not forget his principles. As vice president under Kennedy the pair pursued civil rights aggressively, changing the issue from a legal issue into one of utmost moral importance. Upon assuming the presidency Johnson’s major goals on assuming the presidency were to continue the civil rights reforms being pursued by his predecessor such as the momentous Civil Rights Act of 1964. Johnson and his new Democrats stood behind the bill pushing it through congress. The most important part of the act was that “all persons shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of goods, services… without discrimination or segregation.” (Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title II).
Jackson appealed so well to many of the citizen of the United States, because he came from such a humble background and made the people believe he wanted to help everyone and use his democracy to get citizens more involved of the government. However, taking a look back in history it almost seemed that Jackson did many strategic things in order to gain more power. By closing the national bank Jackson was able to chose where the funding would be dealt out to. Moveover, when Jackson made sure South Carolina paid their tariffs in order to keep control over the country, which seemed fine until he did not get strict with Georgia. This shows Jackson wanted the expansion into the Western parts, which is one of the reason that circulates as to why Jackson did not like the national
In response to the Marshall Plan, Stalin began really enforcing whatever power he had, “Stalin fell into the trap the Marshall plan laid for him, which was to build the wall that would divide Europe” (32). Stalin’s reaction to the Marshall Plan demonstrated a shift in U.S. policy towards the containment of Soviet influence and gave way to Truman’s approval of NSC-68. The document was essentially an outline of American strategy in response to communism, it greatly increased the defense budget, and to more broadly define it, it allowed America to take “any measures, overt or cover, violent or non-violent” to advance our cause in the Cold War without “jeopardizing the integrity of our system” (170). This eventually gave purpose to the Vietnam War, but conclusively, Truman’s contributions were
