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.
He won a Pulitzer Prize for his book Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation and he also won a National Book Award for his book American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson, which were both bestsellers. This book examined the life and endeavors of the first President of the United States, General George Washington. In the book, Ellis covered three main parts of Washington’s life, his military feats in the French and Indian War, his achievements as a general during the American Revolution, and his terms as President of the United States all the way to his death in 1799. This book would be a delightful read for anyone who was looking to broaden their knowledge of George Washington or to dispel any of the famous myths about him also. For example, Washington never chopped down a cherry tree to prove to his father that he could not tell a lie or that he also never threw a silver dollar across the Potomac River.
His main focus should be appealing to the middle-class Americans since they take up a majority of the population and seem to have the most struggles out of all the classes. Obama has appealed to the lower class a great deal and has probably locked in most of their votes which is why it is so necessary to focus on the classes that he knows he can win. Overall, whoever can come up with a stronger economic plan to help recover our nation will end up winning. However, the emotions of the American people are where any candidate should want to win their people over because Americans will follow their heart and if their heart is telling them which president is going to make their lives the best possible then that’s the way they will
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.
However, due to the methods presented for American success, each party contradicted their opinions on the common man, democracy, and the constitution which foreshadows a great unstable nation. The viewpoint of the common man, perceived by the federalists and the republicans, split a rift between two oppositions. The federalists supported the rich and wealthy people so they could grow and trickle down their prosperity to the lower classes. Alexander Hamilton believed that the rich and prosperous should handle the nation due to the majority of the first class being well educated. He points out that while his population of supporters had the resources and knowledge to run the government, the lower classes basically had small or no resources at all.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt has been called one of the greatest presidents which we have ever had. However, that assertion is based on one's willingness to agree, and fully believe in, the methods and the man who created such programs as the National Recovery Administration (NRA) and Works progress Administration (WPA), and as a whole Roosevelt's "New Deal". Taken apart, these programs seem like a "Good Deal", but when one evaluates them separately and disjointed from their mantle, he finds that not only were they risky, they might have sunk this country during the great depression. Compound this with his instating of our broken Social Security system along with his income tax raises and instatement of payroll taxes, and you've got a recipe

James Madison, the father of our constitution, provided us with probably the most important document in the history of the united states during its time.Our founding fathers, people who owned slaves and thought people of being cynical, created the constitution.Replacing the Articles of Confederation, it provided a strong central government where government power was separated and given checks and balances so that government would not get as big and powerful like britain did.Now in the twenty first century, where social structure has changed, technology has become king, and the amount of amendments to the constitution are numerous,is the constitution relevant? It is easy to say that the constitution is very old, two hundred and twenty five years old.
Experts have designed ways of protecting people in the country in case there ever is an attack on the United States.

Naturalization The question is no longer, “How do people become Americans?” but rather “How has America become its people?” Since the days of the colonies, the United States was viewed as the land of opportunity, a globalized estate that was a safe heaven from political tyranny, social prosecution, and economical struggles. As the United States matured however the tolerance of immigrants quickly fell, leaving the White Anglo Saxon Protestant to be the desired people of the land. The image of the country of immigrants that was the building block of the constitution all but excelled.
