Alexander Hamilton was a founding father and a framer of the constitution. He was the first secretary of the treasure in George Washington 's cabinet. Alexander Hamilton was a key player in persuading the New york government at the new York ratifying convention which got the constitution signed. Alexander Hamilton created our currency and the first national bank, but the creation of his political party can be known as the reason for the major divide between Americans today. The assassination of Alexander Hamilton was unjust because he was a key in player in ratifying the constitution and created the currency and the first national bank, but people believe that the creation of his political party created a great divide between Americans.
The British had a Monarchy on them. After they won their independence, they set a Democracy government and Federalism (weak and strong central government power shared), almost all the contrary to how British Monarchy worked. This is important because this shows why the United States broke away from Great Britain and set a new government very different to Great Britain 's type of
Bringing forth the twenty seven amendments protecting our rights against any possible corruption in the government. The British had abused it 's power and had put the US citizens. Therefore causing the proposition of the Declaration. For example, The King had been depriving the people of a fair trial by jury. “For depriving us, in many cases of the benefits of trial by jury”(Declaration) Continuing on, He forced them to provide housing for the soldiers he sent over to America.
It was during his role as Prime Minister that he planned and organized the British Army against France which led him win the French and Indian War and also defeated the french in the European Continent. Pitt agreed and sympathized with the Americans, specially in their opposition of the Stamp Act. His oppositions and criticism against the government of King George II and their laws in America, forced him to resign. I wonder what would have happened if he wouldn’t complain as much and would stayed longer as Primer of Minister, may be he would have helped and agreed in the American War of Independence, probably many lives have been
The current election systems ensures the people have a say in who is elected president but do not hold all of the power. Citizens have a say but at the same time uneducated people are not able to solely choose the next president of the United States. As Alexander Hamilton, an american statesmen and one of the founding fathers, said, “It was equally desirable, that the immediate election should be made by men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station” (document 1). Alexander Hamilton is saying smart, educated men should be the ones deciding who should become the next president. The United States has had the same system that has worked flawlessly, there is no reason to change a system that is still working
This is one of the main rules and actions that we can look to that truly cuts out an idea of not only of what the Founding Fathers wanted balance of power to look like but also federalism in general. The Tenth Amendment has helped check the federal government over the years and has ensured the power of the states and of people maintaining a middle ground. An example of the Tenth Amendment truly effecting the government and the states after the making of the Constitution would be one that we talked about in class, being the making of the national bank. We discussed how during the making of the bank many people questioned if the national government was allowed to do this because it was not a specifically awarded power listed in the Constitution. Obviously, it ended up being allowed, but the Tenth Amendment played a major rule as to the discussion that took place amongst those in power when deciding
Oliphant 's Opaque Opinion Before Franklin Roosevelt 's New Deal, court justices referenced the Constitution in order to ensure economic liberty and prevention of encroachment upon private property. This conservative court was quick to strike down many of the New Deal initiatives, until there was a power shift on the bench in 1937. This historical context goes to show how a simple change in partisan power within the legal system has the potential to dramatically recalibrate the U.S. Supreme Court. In fact, just one justice has the capacity to have a strong influence within the courtroom. Correspondingly, James Oliphant composed "Tipping the Scales" which canvasses John Roberts role as Chief Justice.
Judging from what I have read and seen off the videos shown to us for each philosopher, I believe that the biggest influence on the U.S constitution would have to be John Locke. He focused on the issues that to this day we are still concerned over which are; who should rule over us, how we should educate our children and what to do with those that have different religions from us. As mentioned, Locke had argued against Thomas Hobbes social contract so that people can have the right to over throw the ruler if the ruler acted like a tyrant. This became a big influence on the democratic revolution because to this day as we know it we still have a say in which ruler (president and government) we want to expel from giving us orders so long as we
Before writing Common Sense a lot of the political theories created by other philosophers were implemented within the pamphlet and also argued. For example, Montesquieu developed the theory of the separation of powers, a theory written within the constitution and adopted by many other nations. We are also given Paine’s perspectives on certain issues like the implementation of a constitutional monarchy, which was formulated by John Locke, in which Paine argued on what’s the point of having a monarch where certain limits could be avoided due to the monarch’s influence. That is why the English constitution involves a house of commons who are appointed by the king, known to be wiser helps keeps the king’s power in check, but lacks the power to create or pass laws which contradicts Montesquieu theory. By following this, Paine states “that the king is not to be trusted without being looked after; or in other words, that a thirst for absolute power is the natural disease of monarchy.” From this statement Paine gives us the key issue towards this system of government, where separation of powers will play a large role within our democratic system, so that the President can avoid having absolute power.
To begin with, Paine saw the need for a new and stable kind of government that promotes, represents, and unites American people. According to Paine it is mainly because of the people 's constitution that the British government is considered to be less oppressive compared to other European governments. Therefore, it is very important to recognize and consider the difference between society and government, especially monarchial, and their impacts on their communities. Paine argues that society affects people positively by uniting them and promoting their wellbeing. On the other hand, government by a king is rooted in an evil origin, and history has shown that it 's hereditary succession leads to foolish, wicked, and improper leaders, who
