It’s clear that the Republican Party is the main cause of the shutdown, but what does this mean for them. After having done this to the American Government will the American people think twice about who they vote for? All these questions are truly hard to answer for political ideology can change over time, but most of the time it is not easy for change to occur. The Republicans have wronged the citizens of this country, but with time they might be able to recover the people’s trust and maybe this shutdown will be forgotten.
Jefferson advocated for a weak central government, and him and his followers founded the Democratic-Republican Party. Both Hamilton and Jefferson were against the idea of political parties but their strong, differing views forced them into the creation of their respective parties (Flanders). Hamilton and Jefferson’s creation of their political parties led to a split among the nation, ultimately leading to the Civil War. The parties were helpful, in that they gave people an entity to rally their idea behind, they were also harmful as they split the nation and set specific ideas for people to live by. This is what they have done ever since.
President Obama recently declared, “What makes someone American isn’t just blood or birth but allegiance to our founding principles and faith in the idea that anyone- from anywhere- can write the next chapter of our story” ( Immigration Reform Quotes). In the United States of America, immigration has been a thorny issue due to the fact that some Americans do not want immigrants living in the United States illegally. Undocumented workers come to the United States for a better life for their children as well as a better life for themselves. They come here only because they want to provide their own families with better opportunities, something the may have not been able to have. What many Americans do not understand is that immigration policies
Liberty and democracy is what America is run on. However, the Sons of Liberty were still fanatics. Although the Sons of Liberty helped start the Revolutionary War, it hurt America. Americans were not ready or equipped to fight and after the war, Americans struggled with economics and government for a little while. Also, the Sons of Liberty didn’t come up with liberty and democracy themselves, the whole nation agreed to it.
That is why they adopted some of the ideals of the old Federalist Party. Also, during this time, the Federalists died out. As realized after the Hartford Convention, the nation did not need nor want the Federalists anymore if the Democratic Republicans could get the job done. Although people changed a great deal during this time, it seemed to be beneficial to the nation. If people had not grown and never continued to learn and aspire to what is needed, then we may have never gotten to this great nation that the United States of America is today.
Many people keep complaining about how the government is a complete failure, but if you do your part and vote, you can make a change in the government system. Voting is your opinion on paper that could make a change in America on how a leader runs this country. Americans should have the ability to vote and voice their opinion but a lot of us do not take advantage of freedom of speech. It is our responsibility as citizens to elect officials that we feel will be honest. These officials need to help make our country better and a safer place.
Foreign policy is a main factor in how America regulates its relations with other nations. What forms foreign policy is the national interest across the Unite... ... middle of paper ... ...to become a cop. At the end of the day, not all Americans find the police of the world role very appealing. People do not always enjoy getting pulled into other nations’ problems. But as Congressman, Jimmy Duncan (Tennessee Republican) stated, “It is a traditional conservative position not to want the United States to be the policeman of the world.” America works hard to keep peace amongst the nations, and amongst the allies, in order to keep the allies dependent.
The South also needed to be more aggressive politically. The Confederates needed help, but they just waited for France or Britain to come to the rescue, doing little to persuade them. Winning some of the order states also would have increased chances of success, doubling industry and providing more men to fight. These states had slavery and did not want to lose their way of life; therefore, the Confederates had the possibility of convincing the Border States to join them. Finally, the South was not aggressive enough in influencing the beliefs of citizens, both on their side and in the Union.
While there are many positive and negative aspects to the North winning the Civil War, the debate of whether the United States is better off today is still controversial. The Confederate States wanted to fight off many issues they faced with the North or the Union. While many only are aware of the abolition of slavery, there were also more positive aspects due to this war. With the evidence I have seen, I believe the United States is better off since the North won the Civil War. From this war, the United States is better off socially, the overall outcome of government and military operatives, and economically.
Electors are expected to be honest but in the past our country has caught some untruthful ones. The electoral College was created so long ago that it is now outdated, so we shouldn't even have electors. People of the U.S. may think that they are participating in a direct election for the president, but with the Electoral College system technically, this isn't the case. Having only two candidates running for the leader of our country restricts our choices for president. If a third part wins the majority of the popular vote, that doesn't necessarily mean they will be the president because it's all up to the electors.
