Is Gerrymandering a Controversial Topic? Gerrymandering is a process where the ruling political party uses the map of their state to draw lines that create voting districts in favor of their party. The result of this is that it doesn’t reflect the voters political views. For about 200 years the government has used gerrymandering during political elections and it continues to be used today (King, Elizabeth) . But recently gerrymandering has become more controversial because people feel that it has taken away their rights as a voter and it swings the votes to one side by a big percentage.

He came into office at a time where the government was viewed as corrupted due to the previous presidents, such as Ford and Nixon. Carter came into office wanting to fix this point of view of the government and bring America back to the top. He failed miserably. He wanted to make politics more transparent and he wanted to control everything he could. He expected for congress to help him with this.
Voter ID laws are two sided, but most Americans feel that it is necessary to prevent voter fraud. Republicans feel that an individual should already have a state ID because this is required by so many government agencies. Unfortunately, the Democrats are the ones to be most likely affected due to their voters’ economic status, disabilities and age. Whereas, Democrats believe that it is a tactic to defer their supporters from voting. Even though voter fraud does occur, it is not as often as one would imagine.
We having established our political view into these countries means they can be more like America. Even though I get criticized on many of the things I do as president of the United States, I still feel that my voicing over these country that we as American’s have, should make up for me being “weak” as the president. Even opinions from the press has dimmed me in a bad light as the president. Since the spanish foreign policy I have also dealt with the repercussions, but I feel as if you can’t please everybody in America as the president. People even said I was a weak and mediocre president because I did not want America to go to war, but of course things end up diffrently than as planned.
Voting in the United States is barely taken serious by a few people. Many people wait for the last minute to vote. Sometimes people don’t get educated enough on what each candidate is proposing. They vote just to get it out of the way and not care how their vote will affect the nation. As a country we don’t have an active voting population.
One of the biggest worries when people talk about compulsory voting is the fear of uneducated votes randomly swinging polls all around in no orderly fashion. Compulsory voter supporters argue that the abstention option is all that is needed to solve this problem. However, research conducted by Trevor Burrus found that between twenty-nine and thirty-six percent of previous non-voters who chose to not abstain could not tell you who they voted for upon leaving the polling place. Compulsory voting creates a stigma to make people want to cast a vote and make their vote matter if they’re going to be forced to come out anyway, this causes people to not abstain and just pick any candidate or the one they have heard their name the most. Another commonly used tactic to cleanse the polls is to put a fictitious name on the ballot to grab at least a chunk of the uneducated or random votes.
Democracy is the most sought-after kind of government; most people think this is the best type of government. The other side who don’t think a democracy isn’t the best form of government are the people that already live in a democratic nation. But what is a democracy and why do people desire/ dislike this form of government? Today we’re going to dive deep into the core of democracy and how this form of government is being used in the United States. Democracy is government of, by, and for the people.
In this essay, I will analyze the very relevant issue of voter turnout. In fact, in the last few years, there have been a very small number of people involved in politics and citizens have behaved in an increasingly passive and apathetic way toward political matters. This demonstrates the weakness in the working process of modern democracies. If we look at the history, for example going back in the Athenian democracy, where all citizens, included the lower classes, participated actively in the politics, or if we think about the fight for universal suffrage, it is very shocking to realize that people of our century seem not really to use their right to vote. Hence, this clearly makes us question the causes of this apathy.
The approval and implementation of the first constitution in 1638 represents an excellent example of the process that led to the formation of modern nations which rely on precise standards of behavior and fundamental, non-negotiable principles. However, in spite of the numerous benefits brought about by the introduction of liberal constitutionalism across the Western world, Zakaria argues that America’s civil society is being damaged by its very democratic nature, to the extent that he calls for a review of the democratic principles around which modern America was shaped in order to restore its previous balance between liberty and democracy. For example, the author observes that the reason why the American people no longer respect the U.S. Congress is because it has become too democratic and, therefore, dysfunctional. A Brief History of Human
In today’s society marriage is not as important as it used to be. Many trends have been developed throughout the years that are making life today very different. For example, in present time we have people fighting for their right to marry the person they love even if they are of the same sex. The percentage of people getting married are also decreasing significantly. That supports the idea that marriage is viewed very different today than it did many years ago.
The Case for Progressive Perspectives The average American citizen 's perspective of Congress is equivalent to only viewing a still of a three-hour documentary. This is a compelling factor of why mass Americans are adapting a negative prospective concerning what our country is doing and the, albeit slow, progress made by our public servants. News castors commonly broadcast stories covering the latest scandals and setbacks in congress. Moreover, Americans frequently foster cynical fallacies, creating a cleft of disunity and distrust within our Country. How do Americans expect to attain progress and create a better United States if these characteristics plague their everyday lives?
Democracy, since its dawn of time, in America, has been challenged; Many political scientists argue that democracy is hanging by a thread due to the lack of overall civic engagement or political involvement in younger generations. In order for there to be a successful democracy there are certain principles that must be met in order to reap the benefits of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Through the analysis of the foundations of a sound democracy, in comparison to ‘Democracy in America: how is it doing?” to display exigency for a democracy to empower all people. In this paper, I intend to summarize “Democracy in America: how is it doing” to then compare to the key components of a successful democracy to overall show the exigency
Majority of the candidates took a different stance, by placing the blame on the Democrats, mainly Obama, for the state of today’s economy. I always find it quite funny when John Kasich attempts to answer any question asked of him, mainly because he normally responds by completely disregarding the question. This might be one of the reason why his poll numbers are so low, and also another reason why he was not fully included into the debate like the rest of his peers. It is obvious from the past two debates that Kasich’s central focus is on balancing the budget and tax reforms, but the other issues still seem to be unclear. In my opinion, both Marco Rubio and Rand Paul have clear plans on what exactly they would do if elected into office, while the others seem to have vague
