Rough Draft Politicians for two hundred years have invoked the Founding Fathers to defend their beliefs. It is understandable that as a society we place figures like Washington, Franklin, and Jefferson on a pedestal, as leaders of American independence they merit that recognition. Implying though, that the Founding Fathers ideas were in unanimity with each other would be a simple and mistaken assumption. These men, while intellectual giants in their own right, found little common ground on public, economic, and social policy. Heated debates, slander, and disagreement are as defining of the construction of the country as democratic elections.
The President of the United States wields an enormous amount of power, however, at times it may seem they are relatively powerless. This is because the Constitution only grants the President very limited powers in an attempt to prevent the possibility of an “Imperialist President,” or one that basically acts as a king or ruler with supreme authority. In turn, the founders believed Congress should be the strongest branch, which arguably it was for the first half of United States history. Inevitably, relationships between Congress and the President were bound to be important from the start. However, it wasn’t until the Teddy Roosevelt administration in the early 1900’s that President’s began to break out of the confinements of Constitutional

He approached his speech with a very negative tone. Ronald Reagan focused on what was going to be done to rebuild our country's unity whereas Mario Cuomo only focused on what hadn't been done. Mario Cuomo believed that Reagan was only seeing the good parts of America but was failing to see the suffering that many people were facing. People who can't pay their mortgages, afford an education, and parents have to let their dreams go that they have for their children. In this negative tone throughout his speech, he uses the metaphor that “All the President sees from the veranda of the white house is a shining city”.
John Tyler did great with his domestic and foreign affairs despite him being and forcing himself to be the first Vise President to become an President. He struggled to do many things with his obnoxious administration going against him every day. Tyler 's domestic affairs along with his greatest success was when he fought Congressional attempts at usurpation to establish the precedent that a Vice President becomes a full president with all a president’s powers on the death of the incumbent President. His greatest failure was being a slave owner and serving in the Confederate States Congress during the Civil War. Tyler 's major foreign policy achievement was the Webster-Ashburton Treaty with Great Britain.
“The president 's power is felt all over the world.” No nation is so remote from the U.S. that they can avoid the repercussions of American diplomacy. The president can abuse their powers and it will affect the U.S as well as other countries that associate with us. “The formal powers as listed in the Constitution say little about a modern president 's real power.” Modern presidents have way more power than was is listed in the constitution, they do not have to follow the guidelines completely like past presidents would have had to. Informal powers are granted to the president now, in order to “better the country.” The president is capable of hurting other countries with his powers and modern presidents have a lot of powers that are not specifically given in the
Through the system of checks and balances it states “The Constitution grants Congress the sole power to declare war. But it also makes the president commander in chief of the armed forces.” (Glass). Because of this regulation of power the president is unable to make any rash decisions on his own without the approval of Congress which provides grand safety to the people. If the executive branch were to come to decisions without being monitored by the legislative and judicial branch the U.S. government would function as a dictatorship where no one has a say in
Andrew Jackson was the first so called "people 's president". up until his administration government was becoming more concentrated in the hands of the aristocratic forces of the country. He made many choices that could be considered wrong but he made the decisions based on his desire to keep common Americans in control of the government. He refused to renew the National Bank 's charter thereby setting the country’s economic development back by several decades. Question 3: Identify at least one reform movement highlighted in Unit 3.
That's the President we need and also a President who can give out warnings to us. Like when there is a big emergency and nobody knows it we aren't just going to stand there and pretend like nothing bad is going to happen. Our next President Will give us warnings even if it's late or early or in the last minute but he/she will tell us. We also need a President who we can feel safe around that actually cares for us who wouldn't choose money over all of us. A President who can show us that we can live in peace and not have to worry about “ohh he's racist” or “he only cares about the money and not us”.Instead of that we need to say “he stood up for us” or “he's a President that wouldn't let us down even for money”.

Once the first Bank of the United States was created by Congress in 1791, it opened up stock options for public purchased. The new government also had easily decline the request for backup during conflict of war to prevent siding with one country over the other. This was successfully done twice during President Washington’s two terms. As much as assisting the French during another war with the British would help pay back their debt to the French; it was the wise decision to respectfully decline to avoid any future issues with the Spaniards. Overall, the new American government went through many phases writing and setting laws and amending old ones to continue to build a strong economy as a
George Washington, being the first president, felt that in order to maintain structure in the government after he was no longer in charge, had to leave a letter to his country’s citizens. Washington began his address by giving thanks and appreciation to everyone for giving him the opportunity to lead their country and explaining his reasoning for declining another term. Along with these reasons, he pointed out some of the flaws of his presidency, admitting to the public that he was not a perfect American leader and that he is not a stencil into which all other presidents should be carved out of. While he stated that he was not impeccable, Washington did continue on in his address to offer some advice to the future of America. Washington
