Some parts of the constitution are not fit for today's society, for instance the 2nd Amendment after many terrible events most recently Sandy Hook. The amendment process is too difficult and thereby this makes it almost impossible to remove parts of the constitution that is no longer applicable, this is also the case with adding parts which is needed or a majority desires. The supreme court has too much power to amend the meaning of the Constitution, with each Judge as well getting to serve life at the court. District of Columbia lacks representation in Congress. Roughly 600,000 people live in the area, they pay taxes and serve in the US military do not get representation.
TERM LIMITS FOR CONGRESS I believe that term limits should be placed on our Congressmen and women because it would allow for a more efficient Congress. The current Congress is in shambles, a dismal failure and is in desperate need of new ideas, procedures, and influence. With term limits in place, Congress will be more responsible toward their constituents because they themselves will soon be constituents. They will have to live under and abide by the laws they created while in office. They’ll have less time in office to develop money ties to lobbyists and other special interest groups, thereby weakening the threat of lobbyists being able to influence legislation.
Nor were they able to afford to stand for election as due to bribery and corruption, the poor stood no chance of winning as they did not have the money to provide voters with what they wanted in return for their support.For democracy,thes is five basic essentials freedom,choice,accountability,representation and equality.The effects of the 1832 reform act were very limited. Despite extending the franchise, still only a tiny fraction of British men could vote in elections, 1 in 7.The politicians thought this would stop the demand for reforms but this act just furthered agitation for it.Historians disagree to a great extent on how democratic Britain was by 1914.This essay will examine the progress made between 1850 and 1914 before coming to a conclusion,which judges how democratic was Britain by 1914. The Extension of the Franchise was helped by the Second Reform Bill passed in 1867. In this act, all householders who paid rates with 12
These principles did not go down well with the more moderate members of the coalition and bitter debates followed for much of the following two years (Bienio). This lack of agreement between the internal factions may have been a decisive factor in the Right Wing's election in 1933, but so too was the Left Wing's lack of compromise in it's two years which, in turn, led to
Many bills are never reported out of the committee, in a typical congressional session 95 percent of the roughly 8,000 bills introduced die in committee. (Ginsberg, Lowi, Weir, Champagne & Harpham p. 457) If the committee approves the bill it has a higher chance of being picked up by Congress. There are many hurdles a bill must overcome. After going through the committees it
The description in both article reflected authors' different bias. In the article, "Searching for Undecided Voter", the author thought that the whole election is held by a group of undecided voters who have no opinion about the campaign and knowledge about politics. He used words like "The fate of our country in now in the hands of people who don’t think about what they want until they get right up to the register at McDonald’s" in which the author pointed out that the undecided voters don't have opinion. Also, from “are rather less knowledgeable about politics, and much more likely to say they follow news and public affairs ‘only now and then’ or ‘hardly at all." we can see the description of less knowledgeable .
Some groups only focus on single issues and others on broader topics of public policy. All these people want is for their issues to be heard and dealt with by the government. Although the government of Texas cannot satisfy every group it is just physically impossible because there is just too many of them. But all interest groups of Texas have a common goal to try and make Texas better in their eyes although this is where some dilemma is caused because what can be “good” for the state in one’s eyes may be bad for the other person in their eyes. The pluralist vision of politics is an ideal vision of interest group politics and political institutions.
Another structural problem was the meeting schedule for the Assembly; they only met up once a year. This meant that they could not respond to immediate problems or disasters and would be no help to a crisis. Another problem in the assembly was that ideas or decisions had to be passed with a unanimous vote, with lots of different countries and people this meant passing a decision was very hard. This was crucial as the assembly voted in the budget for the league. All funding to support the work of the committees and organisations came for the assembly- this was a one major failure.
The Conservatives got 36.1% of the votes and the Liberal Democrats got 23%. Turnout at the election also wasn’t 100% meaning therefore that less that 30% of the population actually wanted a coalition government. Traditionally, in times of peace, the UK doesn’t like coalition government. Due to the fact that the government was only technically voted for by a small minority of the country, and the public don’t like coalition government, it is evident that due to this, First Past the Post doesn’t produce strong and popular government. The voting system also discriminates against smaller parties, as they don’t
They have only family members in key management positions. This has hurt them for example in Saudi Atabia because of having to pull out and by only having two second-generation family members available able to fill the spot doesn’t leave enough managers at the main head quarters of operations. If they want to expand they will need to have non family members in key management positions because they have only a few family members to fill new management roles. They have no discussion of future planning. There could be more revenue problems with the unstable political situation in the region and If they want to increase revenues they need to come up with a plan on how to do this along with how to deal with other future problems.
