This includes the popular vote not being taken seriously as the people's wishes, the need for only 12 states to win and become president, and the neglection of other states and the attention given to the swing states. All represents that the Electoral college is not what is limiting the power of the government and giving the people what they want, but instead is what truly empowers the government and takes away the choice we Americans should have and posses. While this is what the electoral college is doing now the abolishment of the electoral college should take place in order to give the power back to the people. Do you want to keep living your life truly powerless in the decision of our next leader? Or do you want to give the power back to the people of the USA, and take back our power to choose the right
Jackson's equal political policy became known as "The Jacksonian Democracy," subsequent to ending what he termed a "monopoly" of government by elites. Jeffersonian opposed inherited elites, but favored educated men while the Jacksonians gave little weight to education. During Jackson’s first year in office, however he replaced only about nine percent of the appointed officials in the federal government, and during his entire term he replaced less than 20 percent (Shi &Tindall, 2013, P.444, 445). The Jacksonian democracy exhibited social inequality by replacing federal officials with his own supporters. This would have allowed Jackson to end the monopoly of government elites, if he would have replaced more than 20
Washington would see that individual communities and movements have created change for themselves, while working against others. It’s amazing what could be done if we stopped working against each other. While political parties aren’t going away, which would be to Washington’s dismay, he would suggest that the next president figure out a way to stop the two main parties, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, from being convinced their beliefs are the “correct” beliefs. If we cannot get rid of political parties, the best we can do is unite them. The only way to change our country is by working with each other, not against each other.
The system allows for the voices of the people to be heard through the popular vote and have elected officials make educated decisions based on the opinions of the nation’s citizens. However, the way the Electoral college is set up makes it possible for a candidate to be elected president without the majority of the popular vote (U.S. Electoral College). The combination of the controversial nature of the College and the differing opinions of U.S. citizens leads to a question being asked: Is the Electoral College damaging to the democratic system in United States, or is it a pivotal extension of our democracy? While some U.S. citizens feel that the Electoral College should be abolished, there are those who feel the system plays a key role in our Presidential election.
Perhaps if this presidential candidate were elected as President of The United States, then this fantasy world of common motivation, and joint efforts could become a reality. Although this is very unlike as mentioned, most people of America are too worried about self gain and self interest, and the facade of society places a biased view on anything linked to communism. Too many immediately reject any idea of communism. It can be seen that not significant work was done in the world in “Anthem” and that extreme forms of communism are likely to fail, but a less extreme form like socialism could possibly save the world from corruption, and could bring the world back together as
Even though Immigrants have all of the other requirements to become president they are not allowed to run. Immigrants should be allowed to run for president because, the law was originally put in to protect the country from Dukes, this country was built off immigrants, and the founding fathers wanted this country to be equal and this statement of “natural born” is not equal. Firstly, America when it first Declared independence they were scared because they thought that British Dukes and Princes were going to buy there way into presidency. Now it is the 21st and we are allies with france and no one is rich
Could it be possible that government corruption leaks into this dystopian society as well? Jindra states in his article that poor people are put on the backburner in favor of those wealthier in modern society (317). In turn, Vonnegut’s fictional world has put the average citizens down, and kept them down, in order to promote their superior policing techniques. The government and must work as efficiently as possible to implement these handicaps, so why hinder those who protect their country? From this, we can deduce that Glampers is at least above average in intellect, as well as trained in law enforcement tactics.
This excerpt is giving a sturdy explanation on the topic of tyranny,and how it gave us a clarification on how tyranny is being stopped by overpowering the king.Critics also argued that the king or queen could create laws that applied to only some people and not others, and that unelected officials could make decisions that negatively affected citizens.The people were exhausted and started to realize that they wanted to overthrow the king themselves. Critics of the monarch read and discussed what tyranny meant in order to argue for their notion of the rule of law. Two of the most important people who wrote about tyranny were the ancient Greek philosophers, Plato and Aristotle. At the time of the American Revolution, critics of tyranny discussed and circulated many of Plato and Aristotle’s writings to explain their opposition to tyranny,and how Aristotle had a better view on how the government should ran, the founding fathers took a very good attraction towards the idea of having the rule of law that Aristotle
Alexander Hamilton is the man with his face on the ten dollar bill, but people know little else about him other than that. He is a Founding Father who receives very little acknowledgement for his work in shaping our country. He was often controversial and contradictory, and was one of the very few Founding Fathers to suggest a monarchial style for America’s newly birthed government. His foresight would become invaluable to our country, as his forward way of thinking depicts American culture in its modern state, perhaps more so than any other Founding Father had in mind. He was as controversial in death as he was in life, dying in a duel to Aaron Burr; the only Founding Father to die in such a fashion.
Some of the people felt, The Articles of Confederation, made the national government too weak because of democracy. The Articles of Confederation maintained the principle that the national government would not hold more power than the states, which they saw as sovereign. This did satisfy the fears and questions
Even though, originally, George Washington and the framers of our Constitution were against “factions”, political parties soon sprung up over the course of our nation’s history. This is due to the fact that people with the similar beliefs group together, and soon enough, political parties formed and became a staple part of our government in the United States. However, this is not the way it has to be. Political parties are beginning to become irrelevant in the current state of our nation. Now more than ever, political parties are not necessary because they produce an unresponsive government, create little change, and cause internal corruption.
Estefany, Democracy is when the people vote for elected officials and new policies to represent them in government; this is usually decided by the majority. Freedom is the ability to think or speak as one desires, without restriction. As it pertains to the United States, freedom is the ability to think or speak as one desires, so long as it does not infringe on the freedom of another or violate any laws. She should have received compensation. In the course book on page 817, it mentions how many needy American like Florence and her children were left with little aid.
At that time only liberals and nationals were the only two parties, all they did was fight for politics. And when one or the other political parties won nothing changed. There were still many deaths and different political views and no one was ever pleased. The liberals were trying to make Honduras a military state while the others were trying to help fight the entrance of communism that some of the President wanted. She says that from what she sees on the news little or nothing has changed.
