However, it concentrated wealth and power within the economy and Jackson was against that power affecting the common people. He ran for reelection and was going against his personal enemy Henry Clay, who was representing the Whig Party. This party strongly supported the Second Bank and so Clay urged Biddle to apply for a new charter. Even though this passed both houses without any trouble, Jackson vetoed it. Jackson soon defeated Clay in the election and began to make his own changes to the bank.
Texas’ political culture will face changes along the rapidly growing Hispanic population of the state. Moralistic political culture; where the people believe in the government’s actions and participation of these, is not enforced in the mentality of Texans. The people of Texas look at the government more like an obstacle of personal freedom and liberty instead of a common good. Individualistic Political Culture is the belief from the population to limit the government in their actions so the individuals seek for their dream without any limitations. Traditionalistic Political Culture is when the people feel ensured that the government is run by the Elite, which is professional people that have experience with government and business manners, such is the case with George W. Bush, a political businessman that governed Texas and then was elected as
He said himself that he was disrupting the corruption and getting rid of it. Jackson then hired new people that weren’t trying to go against him. One of which was his friend from New York William L. Marcy. Of course there was the Indian removal the “trail of tears.” This was by far one of the most controversial things that any president has ever done in office. In fact Indian removal was so very important to President Jackson that he had to negotiate in Tennessee.
Party conventions are mainly a way for the political party to gain more support and mobilize their supporters and also maximize them. The political party already knows before entering a state that the state itself is a supporter of the candidate because they would not want to waste their time on a state that is not a potential
We are too distracted by Bernie Sanders hair or Donald Trump’s insults to listen to their political views. Liberals in Vermont are too excited to have a candidate from their little state that they won’t hear anything they don’t want to, Sanders to them embodies everything a president should be. Trump’s supporters believe they have a chance to have a president who will speak honestly, even if it is painful or insulting, and who will make America great again. It is the idea that you will always support the democratic nominee if you are democrat regardless of what they are saying or what they have done. People will blindly defend someone running in the party they support rather then choosing a candidate based on their opinions and beliefs.
If we go back to the past, there are many scandalous things that the government has had done, from the Teapot Dome Scandal to when Carnegie & Rockefeller put a man for president so that they can get more money to the Bill Clinton appeasement and wars that the citizens of the U.S do not approve of. There is probably one event that many people may think is worse and that is the Watergate Scandal. Watergate showed the many flaws that the government had at the time Many people do not know why Watergate occurred when Richard Nixon was leading in many states through his reelection campaign in 1972, he won every single state except Massachusetts basically he was destined to be president again (Hughes). Nixon was already a popular choice as a president as many people liked him because he was slowly removing troops from the not liked war that was the,Vietnam War. Many people of the United States have heard about Watergate and how Nixon is involved, he had a lot of public support from people all over the country for his efforts with dealing of the Vietnam War and other foreign affairs.
This is called the ad hoc rule, in which allows the end to a filibuster only if 60 senators vote in support of it. Filibusters are delays or efforts to “Hold the Senate floor in order to prevent action on a bill” ("Filibuster”). Even with several Republicans following the Democrats and supporting the bill, some Democrats opposed the bill due to being from pro-gun states. Interest groups are extremely vital to the legislative process and—in the case of this bill-- the complete lack of connection between the people and the senators. The NRA played a leading role in the defeat of the Gun Show Background Check Bill.
Senator Bernie Sanders is a self-described Democratic Socialist running for the presidency of the United States and one that actively extols of socialistic style policies other nations have implemented. Socialism is a dirty word in American politics and has been lobbed at President Barack Obama since his first campaign. Yet, Senator Sanders embraces the socialist moniker, co-opting the term, and using it to his advantage. Senator Sanders is vehemently opposed to the influences of big money on elections and a tenant of Senator Sander’s platform is to completely rail against corporations buying elections in a country that mostly views corporations favorably. The dichotomy of these ideologies does not fit with Senator Sander’s current standing
He has claimed that “laziness is a trait in blacks.” Personal views shouldn’t become a factor in what decisions presidents make, but they obviously will influence Trump- and he wants the world to know. That could be devestating for the many women, Latinos, African Americans, Muslims, and other minorities in the United States, not to mention extremely offensive. The world is evolving to become more open to many things that it wasn’t years ago, and we need an open-minded liberal candidate- not someone narrow-minded and conservative, to run our country.
Americans ask, “Why do we vote?” It’s really a silly question isn’t it? This is a serious issue, many people believe that their vote doesn’t count and will not affect the presidential election. These people then complain about the way things are. “Your vote is your voice.” Americans vote to tell all government officials and “lawmakers how they feel about education, public safety, social security, health care, and other important issues.” The entire community depends on voting to change and add in new rules, change things within our community. Voting puts change into effect.
