In recent years there has been debate on whether or not the president has too much power. The president 's power has increased over the years, I believe that this increase has given the president way too much power. The amount of power that the president has, can cause total destruction and can manipulate people into doing things that they do not actually believe in. A president should not have some of the powers that he possess, but they are given to him simply because he is the leader of the country. In my opinion the president should be allowed certain powers in order to run the country properly, he is also the leader of the country which grants him the right to have certain powers according to the constitution.
The system may seem confusing or unnecessary, but its importance is revealed by the care taken by the Founding Fathers in designing the Electoral College, which was described in more detail and at greater length than any other issue addressed in the Constitution (Guelzo and Hulme). Despite this, many still call for a shift to a popular vote system for the presidential election; however, such a change would be a mistake. The Electoral College should not be abolished and replaced by a popular vote because it is necessary to uphold the structure of the United States government, to protect the interests of the whole nation, and to preserve the integrity of the presidential election. Opponents of the Electoral College frequently argue that the Electoral College is outdated to the point of becoming obsolete, that it contradicts America’s identity as a democracy, and that it gives too much power to states with a small population. Critics of the Electoral College condemn it as a relic of a bygone era.
This of course is predicated on the belief that the public’s opinion will influence the actions of their representatives in Congress since representatives want to be reelected. In modern use, particularly with television and looser campaign finance regulations, Presidents now are more sending a message to party leadership or interest groups, letting them either take up the issue in Congress or mobilize the people. Of the powers a President has, the power of influence; especially in modern, media-driven society, is paramount. Although another aspect of Presidential power is the idea of executive privilege, or being able to keep all conversations the President has private. This is perhaps one of the more controversial powers given to the President because it begs the question of how a President can be held responsible if the people don’t know what they are doing?
President George Washington What makes a president great? A great President shows what they want for America, and what they want to do to make America better. Everyone wants different presidents and will not agree with other people's beliefs.
Instead of that we need to say “he stood up for us” or “he's a President that wouldn't let us down even for money”. All of this is just saying that we aren't in a look out for a perfect president were in a look out for a President who cares for us. The president should try to make this country a better place to live even though it is going well right now but there some thing that our president can do so he can change these
Reagan did led his country to a victory in the cold war but his great accomplishment came in his second term in office when he abandoned his earlier stance toward the soviet and took a more flexible stance to better the relations with a reformist and leader of the soviet union Mikhail Gorbachev by acting as Gorbachev partner as much as his enemy. Reagan help to the fall of the” Evil Empire” peacefully. By working with Gorbachev rather than against him Ronald Reagan help to strengthen the growing spirit of reform within the Soviet
The electoral college is the way the president is picked, but should it remain that way? The electoral college has too many ways to go wrong and as time goes on we 'll just see more of them, and in many ways, it smacks the idea of democracy in the face. It has picked candidates contrary to popular opinion and gives states disproportionate amounts of power in picking the president, along with other problems. In a country to supposed to stand for freedom and each citizen having a voice, how is that possible when people in one state are given more power over choosing the president than someone in a bigger state.
If the nation was involved in a crisis, government organization can be thrown off balance by a change in leadership. In addition, a president with more experience can be more beneficial to the nation’s well-being. If a president is popular and does a good job, perhaps it is best that he stays in the office. On this note, some people argue that the voters should be able to choose the president regardless of time in the presidential office. By choosing the president, people are participating in government and should be able to choose whomever they see fit to hold
• A president needed to be elected • Many Americans thought that the government was the main threat to their rights • James Madison wrote that the government had to be powerful enough to protect people’s rights, but not so strong that it could control rights of people • By May 25th, the convention was officially underway • George Washington was very admired by most Americans • Delegates decided on the rules for the next convention

The war was declared not by all Americans, but those at the top of the social class. The wealthy people or the Continental Congress wanted independence from Britain but at the same time keep the structure of their current society. However, there are some people that took this independent very seriously, such as in the Declaration of Independence where the line quotes “all men are created equal,” most people are fighting to make America more of a democratic country. Lastly, the video asked some famous historian asking whether the think the American Revolution is revolutionary and most people believed it is
There are many factors behind this poll because it is a common view of the majority of the American people that in many issues, Congress has become a puppet in the hands of the President against its true will. But it is one side of the picture because the other side of the picture will show us the different scenarios. Truly speaking, Congress is not an impartial body now. The foreign policies of U.S are also not working effectively for their people. The U.S. Constitution gives Congress widespread powers to form foreign policy, though congressional activism and persuade on foreign policy has mixed over time.
Currently, our Congress refutes all that Obama has to say and do. If we want to make sure our country is improving and doing well we need to have all parts of the government working together. If our future president makes sure that our Congress is working with them, the United States will be in good hands. If our new president is Hillary Clinton then,
