There was enough evidence to accuse the five men, yet Nixon was the only one accused for being the leader. It is said that the purpose for this break-in was for Nixon to triumph the election. White House official did not want any reporting, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) soon found out that Nixon wished to destroy Democrats during his re-election. Few of them did resign to avoid
James was nicknamed “Old Buck” or “Ten-Cent Jimmy” by the Republicans in the presidential campaign of 1856 after Buchanan said ten cents was fair daily pay for manual laborers. Buchanan 's inability to halt the southern states ' drive toward secession before The Civil War has led most historians to consider his presidency a failure, but overall he did a lot for the country. (1) Buchanan was a democrat who didn 't believe in slavery,
When Taft was chosen as the Republican candidate, Roosevelt and his supporters left and promptly started the Progressive Party. Of course, Roosevelt was their candidate for President. Although both had given the election their all, neither won the presidency without the full support of the Republican Party (SparkNotes Editors). Presidents Roosevelt and Taft had very different perspectives on how to run a government. They had started out as friends and allies, but Taft’s ideas had drifted from Roosevelt’s own Progressive stance to serve the people.
According to “Two presidents and the great depression” under the trickle down headline, “ Hoover now asked Congress at least to save the major economic institutions of the land: banks, insurance companies, railroads, etc. Congress responded by establishing the Reconstruction Finance Corporation and signed a bill authorizing $2 billion in spending in order to save businesses.” This shows that Hoover brought the actions to congress in order to save some businesses to help restore people’s confidence. According to “Two presidents and the great depression” Behind Hoover’s reluctance to spend federal dollars on the unemployed lay his belief in the need to keep the budget balanced. A deficit in the budget could be met only through levying more taxes and selling more federal bonds. An unbalanced budget, Hoover believed, could cause a lack of confidence in the credit and stability of the government” This tells how Hoover believed that the best way to overcome the economic deficient was to charge people with more taxes and to make more federal bonds, even after going over
This basically meant that he thought each person had the capability to help themselves out of the situation they are in. In addition, he believed that businesses would recover on their own and if they recovered, everything else would return to normal. For this reason, he took a more “laissez-faire” approach. A tremendous amount of people despised this method, and so Franklin D. Roosevelt was voted into office in the Election of 1932. President Roosevelt approached the economic disaster at hand much differently from that of Hoover.
And he was able to lower income taxes for all, especially for those in the higher bracket. One of the greatest successes of Ronald Reagan was through his judicial appointments. Reagan named 368 district and federal appeals court judges during his terms in office. One of the biggest failures of the Reagan Revolution was the fact that the government was not reduced at all. The biggest thing that Reagan wanted to do was to reduce government involvement because he said that the government is not the solution, it is the problem.
Jefferson completely stayed true to all of his ideals during his presidency. This can be shown by his ability to stay out of war, reduce debt, and completing the Louisiana Purchase. Jefferson reduced America’s military because he didn’t believe that America should have a large military if the US wasn’t in war. Jefferson’s belief to reduce the military correlated with George Washington’s. Jefferson reduced America’s navy to almost nothing and America’s troops were reduced to less than half of what it was.
During that presidency, he was most well known for participating in the war of 1812. When the British were impressing the American sailors, Madison helped pass the embargo act but when that did not help, He tried to talk to the British which a man named John Randolph said that talking to the French was a affective as "a shilling pamphlet hurled against eight hundred ships of war.” So talking did not help the situation so congress met to decide what to do. In Congress, a small group of the members called the war hawks tried to convince the members to go to war. This group slowly had an effect on the rest of the congress and so congress declared war on Britain. At the end of the war, America won which resulted in the British not impressing the Americas and also Madison receiving more fame for taking a good risk.
Jefferson thought that the constitution did not give the national government the power to establish the bank though, they wanted to fix the world 's national debt to make a safe place for fund, tax, and collections to be kept. The Federalists liked the way money was made in Great Britain, so they would start that in some states. The Federalist are the most qualified for presidency because they stay neutral in foreign affairs, have a strong government, and can fix the world 's national
In “Jackson Battles the Bank”, Jackson shows that he promotes equal rights because of his destruction of the national bank. The national bank only supported the wealthy, and Jackson believed that we should have banks that also support the farmers and workers. In destroying the national bank, he created state banks that supported the people's’ needs. In “The Nullification Crisis”, Jackson shows that he gave peace and stability to the nation to form a strong democracy. This is because he did not approve of nullification, and wanted to keep the country together as a whole instead of divided states.
He wanted to eliminate secrecy in government, and often told people “I’ll never tell a lie”. Carter was able to build a reputation as an outsider to Washington politics which is what the people wanted because of all of the issues that were going on because of the Watergate scandal. When Carter became President the House and Senate had Democratic majorities, so many people thought it would be easy for Jimmy to get laws passed, but it was not that easy. Congress blocked Jimmy’s proposals for welfare reform and for a long-range energy program. Carter was not getting the changes made that he had told the people he would and this
After the elections of 1860s the Whigs party was left behind, and a new party was created to make a positive impact for the future. Abraham Lincoln became the first Republican president, and also he was one the best presidents the United States ever had. Since then, the United States has been ran by the sectional parties. Even thought it was not the first political party, the Republican Party was created to make a change, the Republican Party let humans be treated like humans. The Republican Party beat the Democrats and Whigs in making a movement against slavery, in my opinion is because is something that they were scared of, however the new sectional party helped them win the election of 1860, and then abolished slavery.
Election of 1800 Jefferson and Burr tied in the number of electoral votes and then Hamilton supported Jefferson, which eventually won him the election. This was significant because political power was shifted between parties, peacefully. Also, it caused further conflict between Burr and Hamilton. Each side believed that victory by the other would ruin the nation. Overall, the Federalists wanted strong federal authority to restrain the excesses of popular majorities, while the Democratic-Republicans wanted to reduce national authority so that the people could rule more directly through state governments.
Republican ideas on the consent of the governed were also embraced and exemplified through the limitation of the government. As seen in both Document I and the Bill of Rights, at least the idea to limit the government to prevent any abuses of power against the people was taken into account. However, on the other hand, politics, in a way, didn’t change after the war as well. Even after the war and the propagation of egalitarian ideas, only rich, protestant, land-owning, white men participated, if not dominated, politics. In the post-revolution confederacy, it was only rich, white men who could and did occupy positions of political power, and more often
Among important Republican supporters he had the help of women, progressives internationals, the new business elites, and corporate interests party regulars grudgingly supported Hoover,but they never trusted him. The convention voted Hoover on the first ballot teaming him with Senate Leader Charles Curtis of Kansas. The republican
