This is great, and now we are completely equal, therefore this amendment did help in equality a little. It lead to many great things ' afterword. When the African Americans voted, the white people treated them like they were normal, unlike what they used to do. Now they have more people in state legislatures and Congress, so they will have more ideas. Even after the amendment was passed people still did discriminate.
Under the Articles, each state only has one vote in Congress, regardless of its size. The larger states wanted presentation to be based on population. James Madison of Virginia crafted the Virginia Plan, which guaranteed equivalent representation and granted powers
Take for example the Liberty Party, who was supported by most radicalized abolitionists and the Free Soil Party, whose support came from those more concerned with white labor than Black slaves (The Free Soil Party eventually help form the Republican Party.). One could say a vote for the Liberty Party is a rough proxy of humanitarian abolitionist sentiment. In the 1844 Election, Liberty candidate James G. Birney received only 2.3% of the vote, half of the Free Soil Parties lowest percentage ever (5%, in 1852, And this was after the Kansas-Nebraska Act). Naturally, the Liberty Party had no influences in southern states, however, in the states with the largest anti-slavery activists, such as New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont, they received only around 8% of the vote. Other notable anti-slavery states boasted only 3% of the vote such as New York, Illinois, and Connecticut.
Another way the Cconstitution protected against tyranny was, through the power of big states vs. the power of small states compromises over representation. This process worked as, the amount of representatives appointed was based off the population of that state. The higher the population,= the more representatives. This obviously made making the bigger states happymore happy, because if they had all those representatives they could shift leeway the laws toward their liking, but not too much. The way this evened out was that when senators were appointed every state was given two for six years.
Today, Andrew Jackson is known far and wide in the United States as having been a large advocate of democracy. He proclaimed himself a Democrat, and while running for president, he campaigned that he would change the system to help directly represent the people instead of through representatives. Being a Democrat running against a Republican, most people would think that Andrew Jackson would be the most anti-republican person ever. However, that was not entirely the case. Jackson was neither anti-republican nor the most Republican person one can imagine.
The Indians living in the Western Hemisphere, prior to the exploration of the area, completed by Christopher Columbus, were far more sophisticated than we theorized. Considering the Native Americans had sophisticated societies, with large populations that displayed an assortment of cultures, their advanced social systems were clear. Extensive trade routes created by the Indians spanned across the country, and demonstrated their superior standard of living. Furthermore, Native Americans invented innovative military technology, which exceeded that of the metal armor used by their European counterparts. Europeans manipulated the image of North American savagery, which is now shown to contradict new frontier studies, that evidently prove they
Some changes in party polarization in Congress over the last several decades are the party division between Republicans and Democrats as having widened over the last several decades, leading to greater partisanship. What caused this change was increasing homogeneous districts and increasing alignment between ideology and partisanship among voters. I feel this can be good because the original congress was just one and if you did not agree with this opinion you could not do anything about it. Now at least you can fall under a category which is Republican or Democrat. In fact, I believe there should be more than just two parties because I know most people like some of the ideologies from Democrats (such as being more liberal) but they also like
Bianca Sanchez Mr.Baer P.4 1/10/16 The Articles of Confederation was created in 1777. The document was created by 55 delegates from all thirteen states. The Articles of Confederation loosely unites all the states but contains many flaws. The delegates all agreed on creating one branch of government. The legislative branch also know as Congress, but that did not face the give the government a lot of power.
This loose alliance of states formed America 's first national government, but the unified government, itself, had only one component, a one-house congress. There was no president, no executive branch, and no separate judiciary system. State legislature
Within the United States there exists a separate, but not all together separate, justice system for Native Americans. In Tribal Courts the general rule is that states have no jurisdiction over the activities of Indians and tribes in Indian country. As the book states, “Native American tribes are recognized as semi-sovereign nations with broad (although, not complete) powers of self-government within the boarders of the United States. There are more than 500 federally recognized Native American tribes and about 330 federally recognized reservations, and approximately 200 have separate law enforcement agencies” (p. 140-141).
The Japanese also had to dispense huge numbers of soldier’s elsewhere as they had many fronts to protect such as China and the Dutch East Indies. Another reason for Allied numerical superiority on Kokoda was that Papua campaign was a high priority for the Allies, but initially a lower priority for the Japanese as it was just a tactical securing of Pacific which they thought would be easy to gain. 92-year-old Bede Tongs survivor of Kokoda states in an interview that "We were fighting for Australia. Our friends died for Australia,’ this displays how the Australians saw Kokoda campaign as an extremely important battle as they believed that if Japan captured Port Moresby Australia would be invaded. An example of when Allied numbers assisted on the Kokoda Track was at Buna and Gona where the Allies initially failed because their 10,000 men were no match for the equal number of Japanese entrenched defenders.
The popular and the electoral votes yielded the same results because George won both of them. One of the factors played into these results was that more states where republican than democratic at that time so that changed. The second thing that factors the votes was the age differences for voting more republican equals the more voters at the voting age less democratic equals less voters. To vote for a third-party candidate that means to throw your vote away. By not voting for one of the candidates who might win, you take a vote away from one of the legitimate
The reality is simpler. Our nation today is made up of a far greater population, and most of us have 'jobs ', depend on the organization of government and business way more than the people here at the birth of our nation. A simple majority vote would always be self-serving, while our present system of precincts and so on, including the culminating Electoral College, serves to make way for real balance and meeting the needs of all. My dad always told me something about this in real life. His point was simple.
Cities are bigger and more populated nowadays, which means the states that hold those big cities might have more electors, and more electors mean that if a presidential candidate wins the popular vote in that big state, then it wins over all the electors ' votes in that state, thus gaining them more votes to win the coveted presidency. This imbalance of power accentuates the dominance that bigger states have over smaller states. The Electoral College is no longer a check-and-balance system anymore. Furthermore, there are no big, world-class, cities in small states. Small states are just generally not as populated as bigger states are.
