This affects their individual views on almost everything going from taxes, social issues, health care and many more. Republicans tend to be very conservative and Democrats views are more progressive. The Democratic Party was established in the 19th century and is one of the oldest political parties that still exist today. The main view of the political party is that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the rules.
Throughout the term in BPBE 272 there has been many important skills I have learned to help me pursue my goal in University. I have learned all key concepts of economics and also learned how to use them in my everyday life. This class has gave me tremendous help on how to look at the world in the way an economist does. You have taught us in a way that did not require us to just memorize the material but to actually take the time to learn about the information we are given. I will explain the main points I have learned in this class, what it means to have learned all of the information, How I have changed my perspective on economics, how I can apply my knowledge in the workforce and why this course was so important to me.

A federal system would be more beneficial over a confederation because it would give all provinces the opportunity to send a representative for their area to represent their needs and there would be a balance in power so that no area is being favored over the
In response to the first question Carole Pateman wrote in her book published by Cambridge University, Participation and Democratic Theory, “therefore, for a democratic polity to exist it is necessary for a participatory society to exist, i.e. a society where all political systems have been democratized and socialization through participation take place in all areas... maximum input is required” (Pateman). And most political scientists agree with her, although there is no guarantee that increasing participation would objectively make the government better (Berger). Objectively making the government better requires some form of quantitative measurement that can not be measured in an increase of political participation. Rather increasing political participation would likely increase the quality of representation and would definitely make America more ideologically democratic in
Since most people do not vote we are not truly a democracy. If more eligible voters were to vote, it would greatly change how our political system currently works. A broader spectrum of voters would shape policies and decisions differently. The additional voters would aid in more accurately deciding upon what the entirety of society wishes. To increase voter turnout, there would need to be more than incentive or change to voting practices.
Political socialization is a life time process by people in which they form their own ideas and beliefs of politics and acquire political values. My political socialization was influenced by my family. However, the mass media and my future educational achievements and financial goals had created an impact on my political socialization. My political socialization is that my belief understanding of politics came from the time when I was a young teenager. It was when my family had taught me about understanding politics and what the meaning of it is.
My junior year also led to me taking physical science that caused me to want to take a forensic chemistry direction with my career. Chemistry opens a lot of doors in forensics and has many fun components that would continue to make the job enjoyable for me. This summer I hope to attend a three-week forensic science program at Yale University to help me affirm my interest in this field and meet others who have the same aspirations as
For the government to be truly accountable to its citizens, those citizens must vote; they must express approval for policies and policy makes they like, and disapproval for those they do not (Coleman et.al). Lijphart and Ranney have positioned their stand with regard to voting and nonvoting. For Lijpart, compulsory voting is a prerequisite in order to have a strong democracy while Ranney’s view of nonvoting is that it is not a social disease. Comparison with these ideas is vital because there’s a need to fully appreciate the relevance of voting in a democratic state. High voter turnout could mean that people are satisfied as to how the government provides for their needs and promotes their general welfare.
According to classical republicanism, the major purpose of government is to promote the common good, to create civically virtuous citizens, and to create a well-balanced government. The idea of Promoting the common good can be found in The Affordable Care Act, an attempt by the Obama Administration to provide every United States citizen with quality access to healthcare. Providing each U.S. citizen with healthcare is in the benefit of the entire country subsequently promoting the common good. The Patriot Act another piece of legislation in response to the September 11th attacks, the main purpose is to deter, and punish terrorist acts in America or around the World. Responding to these horrific events demonstrates that the Government is actively
Revamping the Texas Government System at the Judicial Level Is Texas government at the state level operating as an antiquated 19th century institution and should it be revamped to address the needs and wants of the 21st century population? This is a question that has long plagued the government and people of Texas, especially at the judiciary level. The Texas Judicial system is “responsible for securing liberty and equality under the law” (Champagne and Harpham 277) for the people of Texas. However, the outdated ways in which the Texas Judicial system operates is not beneficial to its people, this is notably evident in the way judges are elected, the judicial politics that follow and the confusing court systems.
