Obviously, when a country has a multiple political party system for governing, there will be vast differences in political opinion and policy. The two major political parties in the United States are different in many aspects of their beliefs and underlying platforms. Most people think of the Democratic Party as being more liberal, whereas the Republican Party is seen as more conservative in their values and policies. This is not always the case and furthermore they do not always disagree. However, there are some differences which I feel the Republicans should adopt in order to gain more followers.
Interest rates continued to rise in order to reduce inflation; this caused manufacturing and housing to weaken. The savings and loans industry suffered during this time. They experienced frequent account withdrawals, as depositors moved their money to higher-earning accounts offered by commercial banks. The savings and loans industry was already struggling, the recession only made it worse. High mortgage rates destroyed the value of mortgage-backed loans, which is the primary asset of the savings and loans association.
In today’s world money seems to be the center of gravity for many people. Unfortunately, many people have lower incomes and struggle to pay all of their taxes, while on the other hand, the rich are rumored to evade paying taxes. There are many controversial topics in the tax world including flat tax and the way the lower income people are treated with taxes. Before I discuss problems of today’s tax world, I will give a brief history of taxes in America. Our
We should get involve more in public policies and affairs that will affect us. Furthermore, California’s taxes are too high, perhaps if we lower the taxes, companies will start hiring people back. Lastly, the two-third requirement for raising taxes, it’s impossible to achieve.

That is a fact, but why? Each party has pros and cons, but why is it the Republicans have a reputation so bad, people from other countries even recognise it? Recently the Republican Party has been separating into two divisions, the minority of it being the Tea Party. The Tea Party is a radical, but small amount of the Republicans who have a louder voice than the majority. They have firm believes in Obama’s failure in presidency, minimizing the government and taxes, and conservative ideas, as shown with gay marriage and immigration.
Patrick Henry was one of those famous powerful figures, patriots, who provided support for the antifederalists. Anti Federalists were in debt and they feared a strong central government who would make them pay-off their debts. They thought that it gave too much power to the national government at the expense of the state governments, and there was no bill of rights, thus, they opposed the ratification of the constitution. As shown on Document G, even in a political system, with checks and balances, a certain branch can be too powerful, which can lead to tyranny of the common people. This document was directed towards the Federalist by the antifederalist to explain a possible problem of the checks and balances system, after the drafting of the constitution and awaiting approval.
The Federalists party, founded by Alexander Hamilton, believed that the government should be ruled by the wealthy. Alexander Hamilton once said “ The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom change or determine right.”(The American Journey, pg.292). This means that the people in his party thought that the normal citizens of the nation weren’t capable of making productive or orderly decisions for government. They believed that the higher status, wealthy, educated men should run the public office and that they would make trustworthy decisions that would
Government laws are necessary for our communities because if people do not agree with the government, it does not mean government decision are incorrect. In “Civil Disobedience,” Thoreau talks about government and points out the flaws in the government system. On the other hand, in “ The Grapes of Wrath,” Steinbeck talk on the birth of civilization from physical and governmental issues. Although, many cases Thoreau and Steinbeck perspectives on government contradicts with each other however they both share similar thoughts about self-government. In contrast, Thoreau begins his essay by criticizing the government system, and he believed that government is ineffective because of the stringent and barbarous laws.
Presidential Paper Although many would disagree, I believe Bernie Sanders is the best presidential candidate because i think he has many great qualities and aspects. This essay will be about Bernie Sander’s position on the topic of abortion, his presidential candidate opponent 's position, as well as mine also. My candidate, Bernie Sanders believes women should have the decision of abortion. As a matter of fact, Bernie Sanders in an interview on ABC, was asked if there were “any restrictions” on abortions, and Sanders replied that, “the decision “ultimately” has got to be made by the woman.” Another quote that he states is “we are not returning to the days of backroom abortions, when countless women died or were maimed. The decision about abortion

For conservatives healthcare is something they don’t want the government to be spending a lot of money on; as they believe it causes taxpayers to be paying more as well, primarily the upper class. They believe it to be detrimental to the economy, and to be “the biggest job killer in this country”, specifically Obamacare. As Obamacare is something
That also means that it will cut back a lot of government responsibilities. “We believe that government’s only responsibility, if any, should be protecting people from force and fraud.” as stated from the Libertarian Party website. Which leaves the American people free to do essentially anything.
