But, the process of getting to president is disproportional. For example disproportionate state votes, tie votes, and unbound electors are hindering democracy. The first and foremost issue is voting. Each state is provided one electoral vote for each member of its delegation, However, depending on a state 's population the amount of electoral votes varies. For example, "an individual in Wyoming has more than triple the weight in electoral votes compared to a citizen in California."
The only way to change our country is by working with each other, not against each other. With some Americans refusing to stay open minded to the beliefs of the opposite political party, our country will get nowhere. As one of our country’s Founding Fathers, Washington would not approve of this, and demand the next president change this. If George Washington was still alive today, he would be able to give the next president advice to transform our country. Someone with the unbiased mindset toward the two main political parties would be a much needed perspective for the next president.
Currently, the electoral voters are the only ones with a direct vote in the election. In order for the election to be more reflective of the citizens’ wishes, the popular vote should become more significantly tied to the election. The Electoral College should not be the most prominent voting process, when the popular vote should be more important. The risk of untrustworthy electors increases, which causes the voter to feel that they are being cheated out of their votes, which may discourage them from voting in the future. There is also the high possibility in which neither candidates receive the majority of electoral votes required to win election, such as what occurred in the 1824 election, meaning the House of Representatives would have to decide who becomes
He is actually in the lead for the republican candidates, and I understand why. There are so many candidates running for the republican candidate, and many of them don’t speak a lot. Donald Trump, however, cannot keep his mouth shut, and manages to make himself known to everyone. His face is everywhere, and he seems to be the first person people think of when they think about the election. However, maybe if people started watching the debates and paying attention to what Donald Trump actually says, including his grandiose plans for a giant wall, then maybe the public will understand why Donald Trump isn’t a good choice for the Presidential
Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “National Duties” calls for nationalism and unity, as it says that each individual must work hard and that individuals must work together. Furthermore, it works to motivate our nation by using two ideas – what a nation may leave behind and how a nation should conduct itself. The speech itself, although given while he was Vice President, accurately describes what his actions as president were, whether it be regarding nationalism, personal matters, or foreign diplomacy. His ideology of how a nation should act, seen in the phrase “speaking softly and carrying a big stick” works to motivate many, including our current military, because it focuses on civility backed with power. This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience.
Without even thinking twice about it, Curley believes the worst of his wife and that she has no devotion at all. The act displays that there is no trust between the two of them and they do not have a strong bond. Ergo, Curley and his wife confirm that loyalty is needed in order for there to be a strong relationship between people. In conclusion, Of Mice and Men effectively shows how important loyalty is between people. Without it, relationships will be broken down to nothing.
Getting rid of the popular vote would get rid of this idea that the peoples vote does actually impact the election. We get several voters who do really care about the election. We aren’t even close to the full population voting during the election. From this past election, people still don’t understand how Clinton won the popular vote, and lost the election, and then they think this is all unfair. But that is not how the founding fathers had planned for it, because if the majority always won, then the minority would always lose.
The presidential primary process can be more complex than it appears. The primary process is a way for the two main parties, the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, to select their official nominee for the general presidential election from a group of candidates. Each party has their own way of selecting their presidential nominee and their own convention, where the official nominee is announced. Each year states are holding these primary elections and caucuses sooner and sooner in hope of increasing influence in the nomination process; this has created problems and less known candidates are less likely to be nominated. All states and U.S territories hold either a primary election or caucus for both the Democratic Party and the GOP.
The current election systems ensures the people have a say in who is elected president but do not hold all of the power. Citizens have a say but at the same time uneducated people are not able to solely choose the next president of the United States. As Alexander Hamilton, an american statesmen and one of the founding fathers, said, “It was equally desirable, that the immediate election should be made by men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station” (document 1). Alexander Hamilton is saying smart, educated men should be the ones deciding who should become the next president. The United States has had the same system that has worked flawlessly, there is no reason to change a system that is still working
That way, the president is more so chosen by the people instead of those who "represent the people". The electoral college also helps the small states have an opinion that actually is heard in the presidential election. In class, it was discussed that Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota together, though their combined population is less than that of Oklahoma, each of those states has three electoral votes, whereas Oklahoma just has seven votes. Going by electoral votes, a candidate would have a better chance at winning the election if they won over Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota versus Oklahoma. With the electoral college, a candidate could win over all thirty-nine small states and win the entire election.
Carter was not reelected after his four years of being president, but he continued to bring peace in foreign nations and help the United States with foreign relationships. Overall most people considered Jimmy Carter to be a president who did not do as much as he should have as president. Carter’s failures are what the people see instead of his improvements he made to foreign policy and the United States economy. Instead of people seeing how Carter ended the war between Israel and Egypt all they saw was how Carter failed to rescue the hostages from Tehran. Two things that people often forget is how Carter deregulated airlines and beer.
Meaning they will do anything as long as it doesn 't threaten their principal goal which is reelection.” (Arnold, 5). Reelection is the main goal but members of Congress will do other things that are beneficial to their constituency unlike the theory that Mayhew brings up. Although, congressmen have to watch out for what they say and how they act since there will always be an opponent who will attempt to bring all those things to light to use them as an advantage and most of the time is decisions and conditions that the public hasn 't even noticed and wouldn 't at all if it wasn 't for the robo-challenger. In addition to that reasoning congressmen are extremely unpopular with the public because they have to take into consideration the input of experts, generalist and ordinary people. One would obviously take the position of the experts on the mere fact that they are experts on that topic, however, members of Congress have to take into account the category of people who will get him reelected and normally that is the ordinary citizen.
The Process of Becoming President of The United States Are you a US citizen and are tired of seeing how The United States is run and want to change it yourself? If so then you might consider running for office of The President of The United States (POTUS). Some people might shy away from the idea of running for The President of The United States since it is a arguably the most important job in the whole nation. The first step into being a possible POTUS is to know the requirements. Technically there are only three requirements to be POTUS.
Here enters the idea of amendments. These flaws threatened but also aided the readiness for democracy in the United States. The constitution still allowed slavery, it founded what we now know as the electoral college, protects the president from popular majority, gave state legislatures more power, gave congress more power than any other democratic colony, and didn’t limit the judicial branch. Now when they created this constitution, they didn’t realize at the time that some problems would come with it, but in realty, these flaws help make the constitution stronger. As problems arise within certain aspects of the constitution, the farmers made it so that amendments could be made in order to fix whatever needed fixing.
That somewhere is very key because it should be where you were based from. This is because you will never lose support from your base unless you lose touch with your base. When a politician becomes too distant from his base and gives the impression that he did more than is possible to do in Washington DC he can lose his base. He should give people the sense that he never left town in the first place. “You don 't tell people what to worry about; they tell you.” That is a key quote on how to not lose your home base because you will always need to listen to other people 's problems as opposed to them listening to their problems that they haven 't figured out were problems.
