The organization also publishes a monthly magazine known as the "Multinational Monitor." In 2001, Ralph Nader started up another non-profit organization known as Democracy Rising. This organization was dedicated to ending the War in Iraq, and bringing the troops back to America. The political opinions that Ralph Nader is so well known for would make him one of the highest rated presidents that America has ever seen. In his 2000 bid for the presidency Ralph Nader campaigned against the corporate powers dominance in the political landscape as well as the need for change in the manner of how presidential races are held.
In summary, the Congress is given the power to declare war and “to raise and support armies”, but the president is authorized to serve as commander-in-chief of the armed forces “when called into actual service of the United States.” This means the President has the power to move troops where he deems fit regardless of congress. See the issue here? In Issue 5 of the reading we hear two sides if the President has unilateral war powers or not. John C. Yoo is a Law professor at the University of California Berkeley says yes he does have unilateral war powers. Yoo “argues that the language of the constitution, long-accepted precedents, and the practical need for a speedy action in emergencies all support broad executive power during war.”(Taking sides p73).

A quote from Ronald Reagan with a conversation with Richard V. Allen says “My idea of the American policy toward the Soviet Union is simple, and some would say simplistic.” “It is this: We win and they lose. What do you think of that?” In his first term as president, both he and Margaret Thatcher, the British Prime Minister, put down the Soviet Unions ideas and political thoughts. Other bold statements he has made of the Soviet Union is, “The Soviet Union is an evil empire and communism will soon be but an ash heap of history.” These
Woodrow Wilson: “The World Safe For Democracy” In my studies of the great presidents of our country, I have chosen President Woodrow Wilson to study and to do this written project on. I chose Wilson due to his extremely significant presidential term that spanned throughout his two-year term. President Wilson was president during some of the most historically important events that not only took place here in America, but more significantly internationally.

This means that it is very important to choose a nominee who would be reflecting president’s political philosophy in the Court.
