The Creator of Mount Rushmore National Memorial Park

- The Mount Rushmore National Memorial Park is one of the world's largest sculptural and engineering projects. In 1923, a historian named Doane Robinson came up with the original idea for Mount Rushmore as a way of attracting tourists.

Borglum conceived the model figures, brought them to life within the mountain's stone, and directed 400 artisans until his death in 1941. Later that year, his son Lincoln finished the project, which had spanned 14 years (6.5 years of actual carving and 8.5 years of delays due to lack of money and bad weather) at a cost of $1 million Every mo...   [tags: Mount Rushmore, national parks, John Gutzon de la ]

Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947. “ The reason that I feel that this statement is so profound is that it took a stateside terrorist attack to realize that there was a discrepancy with the way that the intelligence community operated....   [tags: U.S. Government ]

National Deficit and National Debt

- The growing national deficit is a looming problem in the United States now more than ever. The national debt is constantly increasing and government spending is out of control.

The two main issues of over spending and the constant raising of the debts ceiling by Congress can both be resolved by government spending reform, balancing the federal budget and initiating pro-growth policies in order to incr...   [tags: American Government, Overspending]
