At one point in time, there was an eleven year stretch where no justices were appointed, and then two new justices were appointed at almost the same time (Morrison np). The voters should have an idea on how many vacancies a president will have instead of leaving that to pure chance. The justices themselves will also try to stay on until a president that is the member of their own party becomes president (Morrison np). Other people will also try to persuade a justice to retire or stay on the Court just because of who their replacement will be. This points out how necessary it is for us to transform this process because we are allowing a government official to choose the president that will appoint their
Circuit who has long been discussed as a potential Supreme Court nominee. He’s well respected by lawyers and lawmakers in both parties. However, Garland’s now 63, making him a decade older than a typical Supreme Court nominee in the modern era. Loretta Lynch Loretta Lynch, 56, has served as Obama’s attorney general for less than a year, after her nomination got caught up in partisan wrangling in the Senate. Senators on both sides agreed that the disputes had little to do with her and she doesn’t seem to have engendered the same anger from the GOP that her predecessor, Eric Holder,
"The dystopia in '1984 ' came back 33 years later. If you have not read this book yet, read it." (Twitter) Trump, the controversial president of the United States, has not survived controversy to this day. On January 29, 2017, BBC channel announced that a well-sold novel in Donald Trump era of the President of the United States contains "dystopia" that is quite different from what he thinks. It is a novel, '1987. '
During FDR 's first 100 days of lawmaking, Congress granted every request Roosevelt asked, and passed a few programs (such as the FDIC to insure bank accounts) that he opposed. Congress passed a record number of bills in just over three months. The relief measures passed during the first 100 days were targeted to help unemployment, In Document 1; FDR 's First Inaugural speech, he states "Our greatest primary task is to put to work. This is no unsolvable problem if we face it wisely and courageously.
Dwight David Eisenhower. President Eisenhower fit all four criteria for the greatest president. military service, outstanding leadership through a war, proof of betterment of the country by fulfillment of his campaign promises and propitious influence on domestic affairs. This of course is in part to his presidency residing in the Atomic Age in the 50’s to early 60’s after WWII. Eisenhower served from 1953-1961, and was the first president bound by the 22nd amendment.
James Madison followed George Washington 's advice in his Farewell Address the most. He served in between the years of 1809-1817. He tried to minimize his interactions with other countries, and had great success leading America. Additionally, in the Farewell Address, Washington announced that he only wanted to be president for two terms. I dos not go unnoticed that James Madison also only served two terms, and would have only gotten this idea from his good pal George.
At the age of 16, they aren 't really wooried about the presidental election to vote. The diffrence of age 16 and 18, is a big thing because, you can become a whole diffrent person within that two year span. Citizens at the age of 16, dont understand the consequences of their vote and what can happen to our country if the wrong president is elected. When your 16, you really show no interest in voting anyhow.
Over the years a bureaucracy has formed, and the American people are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the course that our country's political agenda is taking. Although I don’t believe being absent from the polls is the way to solve this, it is understandable why a young person in America could feel as though their vote doesn’t matter. All in all, I believe wattenberg misses the mark on the true and nearly obvious reason the youth is not voting: we've thrown in the towel on the American political
Criterion and Class of Becoming the President of the United State It appeared that the only thing in common that Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, and Bush Jr. was that they were all president of the United State. Nonetheless, were they fully qualified to run this nation. In examining the six criteria used by Greenstein the answer will be no. While some president surpassed in public communication others lacked in organizational capacity, political skill, vision, cognitive style, and emotional intelligence. Not one of the president were qualified to do a supreme work, because what one president lacked in, another president succeeded in, but some did come close in improving our
One of the problems with the New Deal was that it didn’t support minorities nearly enough, which is shown in both Document B: African Americans and the New Deal, and Document G: Whither the American Indian?. In Document G, it is stated that the New Deal did very little to support civil rights, most new deal programs discriminating against blacks. Document G shows that there was unfair treatment toward American Indians with New Deal programs, as most programs gave no benefits to Indians, but still negatively affected them in some ways, such as with their housing difficulty. Both of these documents show that if anything should be changed about the New Deal, it’s the way it affects minorities. There are also some citizens who believe the New Deal isn’t dealing with the Depression, as shown in Document F: Song.
That is 230 years without a change in the system or an abolishment of the system. For some reason, even though the electoral college was created in 1787, America is still biding by it. A former U.S. senator from Indiana stated, “Over the last 200 years, more than 700 proposals have been made to reform or abolish it. Changing the electoral college has been the most frequently proposed Constitutional amendment” (Bayh 164). Perhaps abolishing it is a little too extreme, but not even a change in how it is set up or ran has happened since 1787.
In the Republican Party there is currently three people running for President because Marco Rubio has dropped out of the election. In conclusion the Presidential Election Day in the United States of America is the Tuesday following the first Monday in November. It can fall on or between November 2 and November 8. I believe that the Presidential Election will be between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. I pray that if you able to vote I recommend you to do your and make the right choice because as I said earlier there is no turning
the preseint can sign the bill and it becomes law. the president can ignore the bill for ten days wile congress is in session and it becomes law. president can veto the bill. or president can ignored bill, congressional session ends, bill is pocket veto. If the president vetoes a bill, Congress still has an opportunity to enact the law with an override vote in which both houses decide whether to honor the president 's veto or to enact the law without his signature.
“Whoever the majority votes for that given person should be the victor. The current system is undemocratic. The electorate does not officially elect the president, those who are apart of the electorate college elected the president. No other country holds their election in such a convoluted manner.” “Our nation witnessed the result of allowing the Electoral College to determine the
My third amendment I want to consider changing the 12th amendment the election of the president and vice president. This amendment was created to tie the electoral college in the president and vice president election. My reasoning is that whoever can vote should be able to choose who they want as president not the electoral college. This should be abolished because this country is a democracy and the popular vote should count not the electoral votes (Debate.com). With Hillary Clinton, more than 300,000 votes ahead of President Donald Trump in the popular vote count as of the election calls have already begun to ditch the Electoral College system enshrined in the Constitution for choosing presidents (Editorial Board).
