Many of the urban areas of Canada have autonomy over their own police forces. As Canada is divided into Provinces, each region decides what to do with their law enforcement. When local police authorities are not counted as the responsible party, the task falls to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, otherwise known as Mounties. Every member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is overseen by the Federal Government of Canada. There are over seventy thousand sworn police officers throughout Canada, and the numbers are steadily growing.
This law, however, has been constantly ruled constitutional by numerous state supreme courts and legislatures, the states have the power to issue and revoke licenses as well as take measures for public health and safety, and the roads on which everyone drives are considered the state’s property thus they gain the ability to regulate what happens on those roads.

Before this course I did not know much about Texas’s government and how it operated. I had made some connections from my prior knowledge, from taking another government course. These connections that I made was the types of elections held and polls used in each election. This course has allowed me to better understand how the Texas government operates, which I didn’t know before. I now know that the governor of Texas is Greg Abbott, we have a bicameral legislature, and there are 31 members in the senate and 150 in the house.
The Texas Executive The Texas executive branch is where the power to execute the law resides, and where the Governor holds power. Due to Texas’ difficult past with corrupt Governors like E.J. Davis that have gained too much power, our government as a whole decided to put in place a plural executive. A plural executive is when power of the Governor is broken between multiple heads in the government, rather than having that power all rest with one person. Having a plural executive helps to keep the amount of corruption in the Texas executive branch down, by ensuring that one person is not able to gain too much power and thus corrupt the rest of the government by appointing based on friendship.
Sam Houston didn’t want to secede from the union. “In his mind, there was no way the south could win” (Why Did Texans Fight). Yet, Texas seceded from the Union on March 2, 1861, becoming the seventh state to join the confederacy. But, “Huston refused to take an oath of loyalty to the new Confederacy and was forced to resign” (Why Did Texans Fight). Texans fought in the, soon to be very bloody, Civil War to protect their states’ rights, for their love of Texas, and to preserve slavery.
Revamping the Texas Government System at the Judicial Level Is Texas government at the state level operating as an antiquated 19th century institution and should it be revamped to address the needs and wants of the 21st century population? This is a question that has long plagued the government and people of Texas, especially at the judiciary level. The Texas Judicial system is “responsible for securing liberty and equality under the law” (Champagne and Harpham 277) for the people of Texas. However, the outdated ways in which the Texas Judicial system operates is not beneficial to its people, this is notably evident in the way judges are elected, the judicial politics that follow and the confusing court systems.
When the delegates of the 1875-1876 Texas Constitutional Convention came together, their main priority in drawing up a new constitution was to restrict the amount of power the state government had over Texans. After Texas suffered thought the corruption that occurred under the previous governor, Edmund J. Davis, the delegates wanted to ensure that a similar situation would never happen again. The first step they took towards that goal was writing a bill of rights, which would be the first article of the constitution. This article ensured that the people’s rights would be protected from the government such as “guaranteed liberty of speech and press, the right of the accused to obtain bail and to be tried by a jury, and the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.”
The particular condition that the Constitution of 1876 was drafted under was the government and overthrow of Edmund Davis (Harpham, Champagne 81). Some of the main principles behind the Constitution were popular control of state government, limitations on state government, strengthening the economy, and finally promotion of agrarian interests. Some of the more important aspects reflecting the political philosophy of the framers were the high value placed on individual freedom from government. As well as the lack of faith the framers had in the government. Under the Reconstruction Constitution of 1869, Edmund Davis governed.
