Rough Draft Politicians for two hundred years have invoked the Founding Fathers to defend their beliefs. It is understandable that as a society we place figures like Washington, Franklin, and Jefferson on a pedestal, as leaders of American independence they merit that recognition. Implying though, that the Founding Fathers ideas were in unanimity with each other would be a simple and mistaken assumption. These men, while intellectual giants in their own right, found little common ground on public, economic, and social policy. Heated debates, slander, and disagreement are as defining of the construction of the country as democratic elections.

In a bipolar world, as described by Waltz, neither major power seeks approval with one another; they just have to cope with one another, however within great-power politics who is threatening who can create feelings of uncertainty between them and then a Cold War is born (1988, 622). The orthodox argument makes the claim that the United States was responding to the threatening nature of the USSR, despite trying to integrate

As apparent in Document C, in which the quintessential “nuclear family” sits in a bunker, concerns about nuclear war stood at the front of the American ethos. This fear of nuclear war was also reflected in Document E, in which the question is posed of whether or not the “U.S. [should] take the first blow?” This question of “whether a policy of accepting the first blow may be the best one” became intertwined within the minds of the America people, heightening American fears. President Eisenhower, while addressing the issue of the Soviet Union and its subsequent tensions through nearly doubling “defense spending…of government spending” (Document H). However, the Eisenhower administration failed to successfully mollify these fears, apparent in the inauguration of President John F.

Both of them worked together to write the book on FDR and the Jews on a challenging debate that remains over whether Franklin D. Roosevelt turned his back on the Jews of Hitler’s Nazi Germany or if it was just the way political influences, or world chaos that affected his decisions and times to act towards this genocide. FDR and the Jews exposes a concerned leader whose determinations on behalf of Jews were far greater than the people of the world would have ever believed to be or expected, but whose noble governance was strengthened by the political representativeness of the great depression and the war during the time. Most people have believed that FDR had decided to not help the Jews at all, given the many opportunities, ideas, and opinions by the people and his colleagues. The purpose of this book was to show that FDR did indeed put the domestic political issues, such as the great depression, ahead of rescuing the Jews. Proving with facts that He indeed did far more than any other countries would have on the subject of protecting the Jews from facing death in the Nazi controlled countries and the genocide occurring in their death

Offner argues that President Truman was primarily responsible and gives nothing more than the interpretation of a single personal ideology (Offner, 55-63).
