“The assembly also passed laws and made decisions for war.”(Brand, n.d.) Both Athens and Sparta agreed that every government operated better under an established law. Every grouping of people, needed order to thrive and the masses needed something to dictate what they could and could not do, so their had to be something that stated both social and legal boundaries. Both city-states agreed on that and found a way to make a government that worked best for their established guidelines, both also decided to exclude women and slaves from their governmental structures and felt that an established grouping of selected men would be in power. The differences between these two city-states would be that, “Aristocratic cities like Sparta were oligarchies. (Brand, n.d.)” meaning the ruling of a few.
The Roman Empire did. The reasons are, citizenships in Rome were varied, everyone was treated equally, and those who gain too much power weren’t exiled out of their country. Varied Citizenship: Document A/E • Freed slaves could be citizens • Female and male children were citizens • Both male and female were citizens Document A tells you the gender and social classes that can be a citizen in Rome or Athens. Rome allowed almost everyone to be a citizen while Athens only allowed men. In Document E it shows that only males are going to vote and explains the process of how it works.
The Athenian and the Spartan civilizations were very unique and different but the people shared many similar ideas. The Athenians believed that their government was original and that everyone should participate directly in government. On the other hand, the Spartans believed that every man should train for the military. Both the Spartans and Athenians believed in an equal society where the members were devoted to the polis. During this time, Athens supported a democracy.
In 'Document C: Professor Alan Ward' the text states "Only 2% of Roman citizens usually voted." This pertains to the people voting whereas only 2% actually choose the person in Office and acted on laws and war and peace. However, 2% of the Roman citizen actually voting that doesn't mean only 2% was allowed to in actuality 40% of the population could vote and this was back when there were slavery and women didn't have rights, so 40% was quite a lot back then. Going back to the Roman Republic being a democracy, the Roman Republic was
In this essay, I would like to answer and discuss the following questions: How did the people in Athens and Sparta obtain the right to participate in public life and make decisions affecting the community? Who held public office? What rules governed the selection of public office holders? How were two city-states similar in their governmental structures and how did they differ with each other? For the Spartans the right to participate and made important decisions from the entire community were only exercised by the adult and legitimate male citizens of Sparta.

This Amendment wasn’t ratified until 1951, but Presidents had been serving two terms before this Amendment ever happened. Franklin D. Roosevelt sparked the Amendment by becoming the only President to serve more than two terms (he served four). Even though all but one President have served no more than two terms, the 22nd Amendment violates the concept of democracy by limiting people's choices on who they can vote for, not considering who is best fit for the position, and consistently placing people lacking experience in the front office. A democracy is where citizens elect representatives of their choice. With the 22nd Amendment in place, citizens have limitations on who they are allowed to elect.
Shaq signed with reebok because they were offering him the most money and they wanted an icon like shaq to be a part of their business. In 1998 reebok released shaq because he wasn’t selling enough shoes and then in 2008 he signed with the company Li Ning. Shaq also sucks at free throws and his free throw percentage is under 500.

He trusts that "if the foul play is a vital's piece rubbing of the machine of government, let it go… perchance it will wear smooth- - surely the machine will wear out. "ix Yet he supplements that contention by saying that if the law "is of such a nature, to the point that it obliges you to be the specialists of treachery to another, then… break the law.
Despite the theory that Congress is a government “Of the People, By the People, For the People,” the legislative body features only a select few individuals, most of whom reign from upper levels of society. The Constitution prescribes limited barriers to becoming a Congressional representative based on age, citizenship, and residency. Because the Senate is unofficially the upper house of the two coequal houses of Congress, Constitutional restrictions for Senate candidates are higher than those of House candidates. Where House candidates must only be 25 years of age and have been a United States citizen for seven years, Senate candidates must be 30 years old and have been citizens for nine years. Candidates for both houses must reside in the state which they seek to represent.
Which means that you since you born in the U.S. you can vote while people who were not born in the U.S. cannot vote. You also get to apply for certain government jobs. That means that you have certain citizenship responsibilities. It has changed over time because in the 1800s, only 80% of men were allowed to vote. Now days we only have 60% of men that vote.
During high school, most families were in the same situation as me or worse. Many parents would spend $75 or less on coats. However, I notice throughout campus a pattern of coats with a red patch on one side of the arms or on the chest.
