To What Extent was the Young American Republic a Success Between 1783 – 1820? The young American republic may have been an extremely young nation but within four decades it had developed a sophisticated economy with the beginnings of an industrial revolution, it had made its self respected as a nation and its foreign policy affected that of other much older and more powerful nations and finally it had inspired countless similar revolutions around the globe as nations broke away from empires and monarchies. The young American republic was full of successes while the Colonies were still fighting the British on American soil for independence, the founding fathers a collection of the enlightened and forward thinking minds of America, wrote the articles of confederation. This promised the development of a central government with a capital city to be constructed in Washington D.C. and gave a sense of nationhood to a very diverse group of colonies. It may have been a vague set of rules and ideas giving the States a lot of power but it allowed the colonies to win and recover from the war quickly.
The progressive party was the most successful third party in modern American history during this time period. One historian defined progressivism as the "political movement that addresses ideas, impulses, and issues stemming from modernization of American society.” There are many reasons as to why Theodore Roosevelt was seen as an important role in the development of Progressivism, one of these factors was his attitudes and beliefs. Theodore Roosevelt believed that although strong corporations were good for America, he felt that the behavior of such corporation’s should be watched to ensure that greed did not get out of hand. Roosevelt wanted to create the ‘Square Deal’ which was a domestic program formed upon three basic ideas: conservation of natural resources, control of corporations, and consumer protection. It was aimed to help the middle class and it involved attacking plutocracy and bad trusts, while at the same time protecting business from the extreme demands of organized labor.
This act increased the price of imported goods because imported goods were much cheaper than those in the United States. The Northerners embraced this tariff as they benefited economically from it. The Southerners detested the tariff because their economy relied on farming and trade. This lead to discourse between the North and the South and this is just one of the many examples of a cause of the American Civil War. The North had many advantages for the outcome of the Civil War because the North had better technology, naval power, and a better economy.
The motives of the progressive era were mainly to even out the wealth of the country and to get the federal government more involved in company business. As president, Theodore Roosevelt made a huge stand up effort for the labor force. The Progressives, made up of people from both political parties, shared a general commitment to the democratic values of an honest government. The new Deal had a motive entirely different from the progressive era as it followed up the Great Depression. FDR’s motive for creating the New Deal was the toll the largest stock market crash in history was having on the nation and its people.
This was a big step to go against the compromise made during the Constitutional debate.

Why was the Republican Party so successful in Presidential elections in the years 1968-88? There are many reasons why the Republican Party was so successful in the Presidential elections in 1968-88 such as election strategies, finance, personalities, successes as Presidents, and the weakness of Democratic contenders. However the main reason for the success of the Republican’s was due to the economy as this was a very important factor for the American people so if the economy was good then they would vote for the party that improved the economy, but if the economy was bad then they would vote for the opposite party. The economy was of great importance for the Republican’s success from 1968-1988 as depending on the state of the economy this would determine which party the Americans would vote for. During this time period, the Republican presidents managed to obtain a good economy and managed to improve it which would lead to more Republicans being elected in the future.
