The two models of democracy compared and contrasted between various governmental institutions is the Majoritarian Model and the Consensus Model. To start off, democracy can be defined as: “political power exercised either directly or indirectly through participation, competition, and liberty… it clearly emphasized individual freedom and is in keeping with the ideology of liberalism.” (O’Neil 128) Although both forms of democracy are in truth democracy, the argument is whether or not one system is more democratic than the other. When it comes to how the country is governed and how its laws are implemented, which is to demonstrate a more democratic idea of how democracy should be enforced. Majoritarian basically refers to governing by the majority
In order to pay such debts back, Hamilton created the federal bank and convinced the Congress to issue federal bonds. This way the federal government could make interest payments on time, build credit while keeping the inflation from rising. Hamilton thought that the national debt could be a useful tool in order to create capital while letting the American industry to be highly competitive in foreign trade. In his book, Gordon also recalls that soon after the 1812 War the seventh President of the United States paid off the government debts thanks to surpluses deriving from high tariffs. Then, he explains that the introduction of the first Federal income tax in America during the Civil War proved to be decisive in order to investigate how to distribute the tax
The Electoral College system assures balanced power between the states, puts the independent parties under control, grants balanced voting, and supports the major political parties. The Electoral College has proven itself to be very sufficient in determining the president and the vice president of the United States. Since this system has been successful since our Founding Fathers created it, there should be no reason as to why we should get rid of the Electoral

Set under Wilson, the Underwood Tariff reduced in importation fees and added an income tax on incomes over three thousand dollars, increasing government revenue. Additionally, the Federal Trade Commission Act gave the Commission (presidentially appointed commission) the power to monitor interstate commerce and crush monopolies and unlawful competition. The Clayton Anti-Trust Act soon followed and banned price discrimination, interlocking doctorates, exempted labor and agricultural organizations from anti-trust prosecution and legalized strikes and peaceful picketing. In essence, these acts paved the way for more democracy and reminded corporations that the government was the
This can project the people from anything they would disagree to occur. Democracy is based on the rule of equality which means that all the people are equal as far as the law is concerned. Every person has the right to enjoy and experience social, political and economic rights and state is not allowed to discriminate him on the standard of gender, class, property or religion. When there are fixed and elected representative a more responsible government is formed. People under this type of system can discuss matters and problems thoroughly to come up with sensible decision.
Wiebe displays the reforms of the Progressive Era and the changes they were seeking. Wiebe describes the progressive reformers as, “the new middle class” (Robert H. Wiebe 80). Ultimately, this new middle class was looking to reorder the government by themselves. A major reoccurring theme was the focus on the children based on Wiebe’s view of the progressives. This is shown when Wiebe writes, “He united the campaigns for health, education, and a richer city environment, and he dominated much of the interest in labor legislation” (Robert H. Wiebe 82).
Hobbes and Rousseau agree that humans are equal by nature and must consent to submit their rights to a central authority. However, their conclusions diverge on the role and the composition of that central authority. Hobbes’s sovereign is that of one individual or a small assembly of individuals whose sole purpose is to provide security to its citizens and in return maintain the power to represent its citizens (Hobbes 227). Conversely, Rousseau believes that the sovereign is based on the concept of the general will which requires active participation by citizens as a community and binds/favors each citizen equally (Rousseau 76). Therefore Hobbes’s Leviathan and Rousseau’s general will are similar in premise by agreeing humans are motivated by self-preservation and utilize contracts to secure self-preservation, though their conclusions differ on the role/rights of the citizens and the sovereign.
He states, “Men being, as has been said, by Nature, all free, equal and independent... (Locke 330). Locke believes that each individual is equal and independent, therefore, we should all make choices for the common good in the government. Absolutism on the other hand, believes individuals are born as part of a societal body with a function to serve. For an example, kings are born to be kings that can rule without having to sharing their power. Locke states, “for men being all the workmanship of one omnipotent, and infinitely wise Maker; All the Servants of one Sovereign Master…made to last during his, not one anothers Pleasure”(Locke 271).

It would be the landlord’s obligation to make sure his property is habitable and safe for his tenants. This law is observed in a National Level. Although it varies a little on the implementation, it still covers the idea of the landlord being responsible for his property and for the safety of his tenants. Furthermore, the tenants are also responsible for their actions and being able to pay the rent. If the tenant files a suit against his landlord, he is protected against retaliating actions of his landlord, such as eviction from his rental.
Once installed, the new system promoted increases in pensions, income, national savings rates, and provided investment capital for the economy. It also decreased taxes, national debt, and the average age of retirement. The United Kingdom also implemented a partially privatized system in 1978. “Beginning in 1988, workers were also allowed to opt out of their employer’s plan or SERPS (State Earnings-Related Pension Scheme) by putting a tax rebate (like a carve-out) into a personal account.” (www.ncpa.org).
