Sparta disallowed travelling and this has no purpose whatsoever. In document D it says,”It was not allowed for them to go abroad, so they should have nothing to do with foreign ways and undisciplined modes of living.” This is an extraordinarily weak law. That’s because Sparta couldn’t acquire knowledge from others and they couldn’t trade. Since Sparta didn’t allow travelling they couldn’t trade knowledge with other Greek city-states and this could’ve been very valuable to Sparta. This proves that Sparta is stuck up; and being stuck up is an ignorant thing to be.
The legislative branch also know as Congress, but that did not face the give the government a lot of power. “Congress didn 't have power to create tax, draft troops, stop states from printing their own money, they couldn 't make tariffs, and there was no chief executive” (Enotes Martin Murphey) those were some flaws in the Articles of Confederation, Congress had limited power making the United States weak. For those following reasons the
The states have too much power, and the Federal government is not strong enough. According to document 2, there is no national court system, no power to enforce treaties, no power to raise an army, and that they have no power to collect taxes. These points basically say we don’t have a good army/defense, we cannot collect taxes and that we don’t have a sufficient enough
This allows each state to do what’s best for themselves. A negative to this is that the states could not work together with other nations as a whole. This left the United States without any sort of
P14 Well according to jjmccollough.com, “The president of Congress was, by design, a position with little authority. The Continental Congress, fearful of concentrating political power in an individual, gave their presiding officer even less responsibility than the speakers in the lower houses of the colonial assemblies.” P15 “Unlike some colonial speakers, the president of Congress could not, for example, set the legislative agenda or make committee appointments. The president could not meet privately with foreign leaders; such meetings were held with committees or the entire Congress.”
Natives don’t have their own individual identities. Indigenous people have lost respect and reputation because of the western population. “What can I do to help? Not much that anyone can do, says Bill” (King 64). In this quote, Bob asks if there 's anything that can be done about this, Bill said that there is nothing that would alter the situations.
In order to assure that the State and Federal Government don 't overpower each other for one there is a amendment as mention earlier but, a big part is the way the powers are separated. The states can 't make money and the Federal government can 't change each states laws to match one set of
Taxing was one of their weaknesses. The Congress didn’t have the power to enforce taxes on imported goods, so they discussed it with the states. Rhode Island didn’t agree with putting taxes on imported goods, and therefore, the congress wasn’t allowed to do it. In the letter, the Rhode Island Assembly proves that this tax is contrary to the constitution, and thus, it shouldn’t be
No, ISIS does not serve the six purposes of government. It does not promote the general welfare, because that would imply that it were a servant to its citizens, but it is not because it does not provide services, such as schools or air filtration, to benefit all or most of its people. Also, they do not work to form a more perfect union, because it does not try to promote linking its people or unify them. Justice is not established because many of its people are mistreated, and justice has come to mean the law is reasonable and fair. To “insure domestic tranquility” is focused on maintaining law and order within its land.
The first amendment may seem like something that is generally understood among all of those who use it, but this may not be the case. While most citizens of the United States of America would certainly say that they understand and can comprehend what the first amendment means, an underlying lack of knowledge, upon what is presumed to be the most important of all the amendments, can still be discovered. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” The specific piece of the first amendment that is particularly important
Numerous people argue that the articles of confederation were weak and unsuitable for the United States, but there are multiple advantages to this document. Such as having no single leader to rule over them and tell them what to do, each state had one vote in the congress, and the congress could settle in and deal with the western lands. The Articles of confederation could have been strong and suitable for the United States because it protected the states from earlier tyranny that they had experienced due to the British King George lll, and promised to prevent any tyrannical rule of the British. The articles of confederation also allowed each state one vote, regardless of the number of delegates each had, the size of their state, or the
Any day now we will be forced of our ancestral lands that we have inhabited for centuries, all do to a treaty that holds no grounds. Although the treaty may have been signed by who you call the Treaty party, these individuals hold no actually authority for the Cherokee. They were not appointed by any council and had no authority to make a treaty even if they thought that they were doing it for the good of the Cherokee nation. Likewise because the Treaty party had no real authority to sign a treaty and materials agreed upon by the Treaty party, so any agreements made between this party and the government should hold no legal binding. However, despite this fact the treaty was still ratified and now we are going to get forced out of our homes.
The Articles of Confederation was full of weaknesses from the start. It provided no federal courts and no power to enforce its resolutions and ordinances. It had no power to levy taxes and had to rely on the states to provide the budget, which was often ignored. The government wasn 't able to regulate interstate and foreign commerce. Essentially, under the Articles, the government was not a uniform entity supported by the states, but a jumbled nation of states governing themselves under a common name.
He also stated Jackson refused to listen to many people, and he refused to let Indians live. Theodore believed that the Natives could’ve just assimilated into America’s culture and they 'd be fine.The prosecution then showed that Theodore had a religious bias to this case, which made his statement feel as if they had less weight on the case. They also proved that Van Buren was the president during The Trail of Tears, not
