They need a strong government, to win over the people who won’t support over fear of loss of natural laws, like mentioned in document 1 “Let us look and behold the distress which prevail in every part of our country… View these things, fellow citizens, and then say we do not require a new, a protection, and efficient federal government if you can” this document was quoted from a newspaper in Massachusetts. The Federalist have a paper stating new laws and rights of the people while missing one of the most important, the natural laws of the people. You don’t need a paper to have natural rights, you 're born with
Several years after the United States came to be, the Constitutional Convention met to determine how the new nation should govern itself. The delegates saw that it was crucial to have a president and vice president, but the delegates did not want these offices to reflect how the colonies were treated under the British rule. The delegates believed that the president’s power should be limited, and that he should be chosen through the system known as the Electoral College. The Electoral College is a body of people who represent the states of the US, who formally cast votes for the electing of the president and vice president. Many citizens feel that the Electoral College goes against our nation’s principle of representative democracy, while others
He planned for the need of a strong Constitution and Bill of Rights and emphasized the public good. He told the House of Representatives that he declined to be paid and rejects any salary for the execution of his duties as he was president for public good. Washington also noted the power of the nations' call for him to serve as president and the shared responsibility of the president and Congress to preserve "the sacred fire of liberty" and a republican form of government. And in saying this he says he is doing all of this for the love of his
Because nowhere in the constitution does it state that a President had the right to expand the boundaries of the nation (www.shmoop.com). This had quickly became an issue for Jefferson, who followed the constitution in its entirety. But Jefferson who wanted the Territory desperately went through with his plan even in the midst of a debate that it was unconstitutional from others. Jefferson disregarded his fellow politicians who disagreed with his choice and argued by stating “Laws of Necessity” which can be defined as everything that is necessary to preserve a nation is only illegal if it is not done to preserve the nation (www.123helpme.com). He also tried to amend the constitution and submit a draft that would make his actions legal and foolproof.
Thomas Paine opposes the ideology of government, stating that, “Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil,” (Paine 3). Essentially, the purpose of government is to protect people from preforming vices, and defend their natural right to Locke’s ideology of life, liberty and property. Without government, coercion would occur, and destroy one’s ability to express their natural rights. For America, Paine believes that the establishment of a strong fundamental government could allow for the cohesion of citizens to form a society respected by other nations
Both a candidate and president must represent voters and help them fulfill their needs. Candidates and the president are expected to have a friendly aspect about them so that they are relatable to the majority.

Thus, according to Washington, the destiny of the country was not only in the hands of the future political leaders, but also in the hands of ordinary people, who need to make their choice in favor of one or another political leader. Thus, taking everything into deliberation, it is possible to conclude that it is impossible to overestimate the contribution of George Washington into the country’s well-being and development, while his Farewell Address became not only an end point of his career, but it also became an attempt to improve the lives of all American people in their future without Washington. George Washington issued his Farewell Address to the people half month before the date of the next election, and exactly this Address, in addition to announcing his decision to no longer qualify for the post of the American President, presented his views on the future of the United States and made recommendations as to which line we should follow Government in the conduct of foreign and domestic
Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “National Duties” calls for nationalism and unity, as it says that each individual must work hard and that individuals must work together. Furthermore, it works to motivate our nation by using two ideas – what a nation may leave behind and how a nation should conduct itself. The speech itself, although given while he was Vice President, accurately describes what his actions as president were, whether it be regarding nationalism, personal matters, or foreign diplomacy. His ideology of how a nation should act, seen in the phrase “speaking softly and carrying a big stick” works to motivate many, including our current military, because it focuses on civility backed with power. This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience.
The papers that they would write detailed how the Constitution would provide “a remedy for the diseases most incident to Republican Government” and to “secure the public good and private rights” (Fed #10) arguing over concepts that they felt were key to providing this security. One of their main objections against the Articles of Confederation was that the “Separation of Powers” maintained in the Articles was not an effective way to protect the public against potential abuses. The Federalist argues that each department should have a will of its own and have as little as possible to do with the appointment of members of the other branches; that each department should have enough power to carry out its mission an them limit its power so that it cannot become to tyrannical. The Federalist, argues that payments attached to the offices of each branch should be as independent as possible and that a system of checks and balances were necessary to thwart encroachments by other
I don’t agree with one sole person having power over this country but I also do not agree with congress making the decisions in a time of crisis. I would propose having a cabinet that the american people choose to overlook the president for foreign matters and crisis. Arguably, we have that concept and it’s
