The branched cannot pass any law that is unconstitutional or against the people. Petition of Right is when they King become answerable to others and not just God. The King said they were only answerable to God. The divine right of the Kings was a very unpopular thing among the people because the King couldn't be wrong, but they didn't want to disobey the King or God. Article 1; Section 9 is an example of the many ways the Constitution limits our government.
General George Washington was a great leading officer not so much because of his heroic victories but because of his brilliant strategic retreats. Selected by the Continental Congress to head the hastily improvised army that was besieging Boston, Washington made it clear that he wanted the position because he dressed in his full military uniform when meeting with the Congress. The tall, powerfully built, dignified Virginia planter, then forty-three, had never risen above the rank of a colonel in the militia. His largest command had numbered only twelve hundred men, and that had been about twenty years before. Because he lacked a strong military mentality, he would actually lose more battles than he would soon win.
In the poem, The Odyssey, Homer gives us insight of how a tough, cunning, and wise man is brought through twenty years of suffering to reach is home that he weeps for so much. Odysseus, the king of Ithaca, is a man that is looked at as a celebrity by humans because of his skillful fighting, and by the gods because of his intelligence and wits. The king went through numerous tasks and obstacles to get back to his homeland. One task in particular proves his power and the love he has for his loyal and wise wife, Penelope. Looking at lines four hundred fifty-one through four hundred seventy-one, the moment Odysseus, while disguised by the God Athena, proves to the suitors and workers that he is the rightful husband, king, and lord by stringing his own bow and shooting it through twelve axes; the task was quick and perfect for Odysseus.
Ody also is capable of deeds of strength and courage. He shows this in the book by when he gets home to Ithaca after 20 years with him almost dying many times. Also, what fits with that is a great warrior. This means that the epic hero was at war before the epic. This is just like Ody because he was going to the Trojan War when he left home and that is where is he trying to get home from, Troy.
The laws do not have to actually comply with majority opinion, but they only have to appear as it came from the majority’s opinion. This is because the opinions of the majority will silence any opposition, as the egotistical majority quickly silences minority opinions to protect their own egos, and both the minority will be afraid speak up in fear for their own egos. Lastly, the Prince will be hidden, away from the suspicion of the people, since the people can only see and hear the puppet. The Prince has no suspicion, therefore the people cannot overthrow them. The laws and rules come from the Prince, but it is said by the puppet, which is a reflection of of Zeitgeist.
After Thucydides' ostracism, Pericles was re-elected yearly to the generalship, the only office he ever officially occupied, although his influence was so great as to make him the de facto ruler of the state. For more than 20 years Pericles led many expeditions, mainly naval ones. Being always cautious, he never undertook of his own accord a battle involving much uncertainty and peril and he did not accede to the "vain impulses of the citizens". He based his military policy on Themistocles' principle that Athens' predominance depends on its superior naval power and believed that the Peloponnesians were near-invincible on land. (The fleet, backbone of Athenian power since the days of Themistocles, was manned almost entirely by members of the
Since he accomplished achievements during his first-term, it was not difficult to gain most of the votes for his second-term. As an ambitious person, this demanded to do something more to secure his triumph. 9“The two victories, by the Republican in the presidential race and by the Democrats in the congressional races, dominated American politics over the following twenty-two months, a period characterized by more bitterness, divisions, and pure hatred than any since the Reconstruction.” 10“So, on election night 1972, Nixon could not enjoy his triumph.” 11He was not planning how to bring the people together, but he was planning to destroy his enemies before they destroy him. 12Also, he knew that the Democrats, the bureaucracy, the media and the courts will soon go after him.
When speaking of the fabled Trojan War, many people can only name a few heroes from that time, such as; Achilles, Hector, Paris, Helen of Troy, or King Agamemnon. Another one of these well-known heroes is Odysseus, who not only had to endure a decade of war, and then win the aforementioned war, but also spent another decade trying to find his way home to his kingdom and family. Odysseus is a well-known hero for not only winning the Trojan War through his cunning and trickery, but also for all the hardships and trails he and his crew mates went through trying to get home. According to Homer, Odysseus was king of Ithaca, and Homer portrayed Odysseus as “a man of outstanding wisdom and shrewdness, eloquence, resourcefulness, courage, and endurance.” (Britannica) Odysseus is a well-known Greek hero, who is always associated with the Trojan War, and in the
Odysseus is truly an epic hero, he has many different perils and dangers that he must face. He is a Greek soldier who fought in the Trojan War and is trying to return home. Some of the gods and goddesses are on his side, however, some are not on his side. He was stranded for ten years before he could finally go back to his family, and home on Ithaca. Odysseus is an epic hero because of his physical strength, his mental sharpness, and his cunning ability to always get out alive.
The first reason military service should not be required is if an individual is not self motivated to join the military their actions and attitude will be negative. For example, any command, made to an individual that is not willing to be there on their own, will not successfully be followed. The individual receiving the command will fight back. Considering only a few people in each unit might feel this way some may refute and claim that this is not a big problem, but in the military you have to work as a unit. It only takes one person not following commands to mess up the general flow of
In David Barno’s , “A New Moral Compact,” he stresses about our countries current military situation, which is all-volunteer. Barno has also served time in the military himself as a lieutenant general. He claims that the countries current dependence on the all-volunteer military, allows us to rush into war without thinking about the consequences first. Barno proposes the idea, “that every use of military force over 60 days would automatically trigger an annual draft lottery to call up 10,000 men and women” (p.20).This solution is useful but it is not useful enough because it targets sympathy from the people while he needs to target the president because the president can initiate a war without consent of the people or Congress. Throughout Barno’s essay he makes some very good points about the toll or war and how it impacts the soldiers, giving specific examples from his son’s tours.
It establishes this by claiming this as a war to take over the government, but not a Civil War, but a war between two different nations. 5. The tone in the second section doesn’t talk about the conflict, but makes the Revolution “necessary”. Although, it does not specify the conflict between Britain and America, the tone is very simple and to the point of what is needed for “America” to break away. The conflict isn’t stated yet because they are still making their point of being United and no proof is required at this point.
Besides, being realists, both leaders understood that there is no way to involve the non-governmental organizations in the solution. Kennedy kept his realistic approach during the whole period. However, the actions of the Soviet Union could not be seen as realistic to a full extent since their requirement to remove the American missiles from Turkey as well might not have been responded positively, and they would not have the power
According to a article published through the Reno-Gazette Journal , on December 4th 2015, Andy Wirth won another fight despite the odds. The previous few years Andy Wirth spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to prevent his beloved Olympic Valley from falling pray to a movement led by Fred Ilfield , to incorporate Olympic Valley. Andy Wirth was relieved after California’s Local Agency Formation Commission denied the incorporation on the grounds that the incorporated town would not be financially viable.

After inadvertently landing in a vineyard,
President Kennedy vs. President Johnson: Foreign and Domestic Policies President Kennedy was presidency was hard fought, even though he was roman catholic, he still managed to pull 51% of the votes. I think he won because of his youth and determination to make America a better country. With that being said, he publicly televised his debates to show the world that he is not afraid of anything. John F. Kennedy was best known for his quote “It is not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” This inspired Americans across the nation to help with local communities and to make America a better place to live overall. Lyndon B. Johnson knew he had to out do President Kennedy.
