The American government is associated as being one of the best and most efficient governments in the world. The American government was made by the citizens for the citizens of the United States. That’s why people think that the American government works so well. There are other governments on the other hand, that suppress their citizens. Governments where the citizens have no say in their government and can only let the government do what they want. One of these governments is the North Korean government. These two governments may look like complete opposites, but they do share some similarities between them.
America is different from John Gardner’s view because the country doesn’t have one ruling king who decides everything we do. But, the US does have a president, who is technically the head of the state. The president is controlled by a system of checks and balances and that makes America more safe and easier for citizens to feel like they have some say in their
Even though the colonists were technically British, they were viewed negatively in the eyes of their mother country. There was such a degree of separation between America and England caused by many miles of ocean and differences in culture. Many England-born men developed superiority complexes over the Americans because of their birthplace. There was also a sense of jealousy for America's growing riches and power. These factors led the British to assert more dominance over the colonists.
Since the Declaration of Independence ratified over two centuries ago, the United States of America have become a dominant, strong government. It has come from a vast, resource full land with only Native Americans to a vast, resource full land with every race. Americans seem invisible after all the success that the country has created that people might think that they are invisible, but if something happened inside America with the government, the whole country would go into chaos. If the government tried to recreate the government in The Hunger Games, the population would try to fight back but inevitably fall.
The United States is composed of national and state governments that all unite to help the people of this country. Under U.S Constitution a federal system was created declaring the National Government as the possessive supreme political authority. States are also allowed to be sovereign, deriving their power from people through their state’s constitution. The federalist system allows that each state has its own constitution, but they must comply with the U.S Constitution. The differences between the National Government and a State Government are seen in the laws and powers described in a state constitutions and in the U.S Constitution.
The United States of America established itself as a nation that advocated a political system subjected to the construct of democracy. This system was created to represent its citizens so that they may not grow weary in a tyrant monarchy, such as that of the British before the American Revolution . The forefathers gathered to establish a constitution that respected the rights of its citizens and debated with much tension to how authority would be exercised in such a representative government. History has shared an active evolution to the structure of government within the United States , yet America today is actively still subjected to the famous political party establishment that was made in the years of 1783-1815. The political party commonly known were the Federalist and the Democratic Republicans – two very different ideal groups that helped change America.
The United States has a democratic government, which means our citizens get to help choose how our country works. The Constitution is setup to include citizens in the law making and voting process and preventing the US from turning into a tryannical government. Three ways we do thi s is by using Federalism, Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances. Federalism is a system our country uses to make sure power doesn’t stay in one area (Doc A). This method gives specific responsibilities to Central Government and each state.
Since the founding of America in 1776 countless people have either become disenfranchised by the federal government or backed the government. From laws being passed to decisions being made there will always be a division amongst the American people. Whether arguing over gun laws or citizenship rights, the debate is always there and met with some form of counter argument from either side. What makes America so great is the fact that you have the right to have a voice and speak out for your opinions. One of the greatest ways for a citizen to be heard is voting.
Our national government has not always dad this much influence over matters concerning this country. Under the Articles of Confederation, power for the national government was vastly limited compared to the current central government today. The people who wrote the Articles where worried about a strong central government that would oppress them like the King did. In turn they came up with the Articles of Confederation which gave greater power to the states instead of the national government. Under the Us Constitution the central government know has more power than it did under the Articles of Confederation to stabilize the United States.
Before in an oligarchy or in a monarchy one person or group made the decisions about everything. This is a very basic similarity though, as the groups in each democracy do completely different things. The current American Democracy split up their responsibilities into three separate branches. These checks and balances are called; judiciary, legislative and executive. The leader of the country or president as we call him is contained in the executive branch.
Franz Milagroso 9/13/14 Popular Sovereignty The concept of Popular Sovereignty had developed throughout the existence of American democracy. Since America’s formation of it’s government it has always believed in the power and responsibility of the government.
Our government is weak and powerless. We’re the laughing stalk of all the nations, but that can all be change with the Constitution. With the Constitution comes a stronger government, more power for you, the people of America, more rights and protection,
The American colonies separated from England on July 4th, 1776 but still have similarities towards the English government. This is because the ideas of English government had influenced the creators of the United States Constitution and the extension of the United States Constitution, The United States Bill of Rights. Two major English documents which influenced the ideas within these US documents were The Massachusetts Body of Liberties and the English Bill of Rights. The Massachusetts Body of Liberties and the English Bill of Rights influenced the US Constitution and the US Bill of Rights with their views on the right to petition, the right to receive due process, and the idea of checks and balances in the government. The US constitution’s
In America, we have a representative democracy, which means a form of government in which the will of majority is expressed through groups of individuals elected by the people to act as their representatives. In simpler terms, it means that the citizens vote or elect an individual to represent them in the government. Throughout the world, many countries “Claim,” to have a democratic government for example, “People’s Republic of China or Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea.” In reality, both of those countries have a government that is nowhere near democracy or republic, they have either an oligarchy or dictatorship which can best describe their nation’s government. Another form is a monarchy, how England was ruled for long time, but now is ran by a constitutional monarchy.
Prior to the American Revolution, history had shown cases of tyrannical governments taking advantage of the people. In most cases these tyrannical governments were shown no mercy and many times they were overthrown. For the American Colonies and the British Government this was completely different. It was different in the way that the American Colonies had shown great dislike for the lack of representation, taxes, and its plain disrespect from its mother land.
