Finally, the bill is sent to congress where they vote to pass it or to reject the bill. All of these political parties played a part in getting us to have a democracy government. Where we the people get to decide who can represented us as a nation. Where we have a say on things. No, one main branch in government can decide on everything, or can rule different things without a say.
Investigating the Factors that Lead to Pressure Groups Succeeding or Failing There are factors which lead to pressure groups succeeding or failing. I will be discussing the factors which are required for a pressure group to be successful in achieving their aims. Firstly, one may think the size of a group is a factor and more people mean more votes. A government is more likely to respond to pressure groups by large groups because there are more potential votes to be won or lost. However, size is not always considered a factor because even pressure groups which are small in size can make an impact, since it depend on the way the members of the pressure group think, as in being imaginative, tactical thinkers etc.
A representative government is when power is controlled by the people. Through elected officials and representatives, they make decisions on the people’s behalf in the government. Decisions are made through a majority rules voting system, the Senate votes on the issue, then the president turns the bill into a law. In this form of government, the elected representatives hold the power because they are the ones who make resolutions to the citizen’s wishes. Laws are created by the legislative branch, then the law is enforced through the executive branch.
The president’s power over the legislature is limited to asking for a review of bill that is asked for him to sign (Article 356). Once again, power is concentrated into the legislative branch by giving them the power to appoint the president. The prime minister is appointed by the president, and is responsible for leading the cabinet and advising the president (Article 78). The presidents of both countries are largely ceremonial because of the power concentrated within the legislature. The legislative powers of both India and Turkey are stronger than their executive branch, and both are unitary forms of government.
Now however in present times it doesn’t work because too much power is given to very few states for example 6 states decide the president of The United States because their population is so big they get more electoral votes. However some people and/or politics are still for the electoral college because it makes winning a lot easier than popular vote does which isn't right. They believe this because why work hard when you don’t have too. But a good argument that they have made is that they say its for the people by the people. Thats the way it was meant to be but it’s not bec... ... middle of paper ... ...oral College.” Society 49.5 (2012): 418-422.
The Electoral College is one of the only things that don’t follow this rule and it needs to change. It needs to change because it does not necessarily mean that the more popular president will get the job. For example Al Gore got the popular vote, but George Bush won the election. If it was majority rules then Al Gore would have become president and the country may be a lot different than it is today. Al Gore deserved to win but since Bush won the more meaningful states he got the job even though America wanted Gore.
Thus, this system discriminates people who live in states with high turnout. Rather than having statewide electoral vote distribution, vote distribution in congressional district could be little more effective in way to represent people’s will. Upon this defectiveness of Electoral system, current system is failure the way it mislead results and misrepresent population. This system is being used to choose our president for a long time and it is hard to find a replacement for it, but little effective change in the system is possible. If that is done, that change may bring huge breakthrough to the way we Americans see election.
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “democracy is a government by the people.” Merriam additionally specifies democracy as the “rule of the majority.” In government, this definition may be a contradiction. A classic democratic state is defined as a government in which the supreme power is invested in the people which is exercised directly or indirectly through the use of elections. However, according to the definition of Merriam-Webster the power comes from the masses. In the parliamentary democracy of the United Kingdom and Sweden either theory may be applied. In both countries, the Constitution declares the people as the main source of public power.
The major parties reflect its decentralized structure. Candidates are recruited at the state or local level and are responsive primarily to their own state or local constituencies. At the national level, they consist of local party representatives. This state local orientation affects the policy positions that parties take and the decisions that their elected officials make. What this really means is that we started off with a two party government and people in these parties came into power.
(11) Representative Democracy is “ a form of government where officials representing a certain group of people are elected ”. (11) The founding fathers actually created a republic with the Constitution. It had three branches. Each with different government jobs. The Executive Branch was elected by the Electoral College.
