George Karam A.P. History Mr. Vieira 10/19/12 DBQ Since the dawn of American politics, there were two political factions, the Federalists led by John Adams and Alexander Hamilton, and the Anti-Federalists or Democratic Republicans led by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Since the American Constitution was established in 1789, each side had its own interpretations to how to govern the United States based on the Constitution and its founders. The Democratic-Republicans were usually characterized as strict constructionists, which meant they believed in interpreting the Constitution by the exact words presented by its framers, and refused to change anything about it. The Federalists were usually characterized as loose constructionists, which meant they focused more on the intent of the constitution and its framers, and believed that changes were necessary for the development of the nation.
Federalist #78 Analysis The Federalist #78 was written by Alexander Hamilton on May 28, 1788. In the essay, Hamilton expresses his views on the structure of the Judiciary as written in The Constitution. Although Hamilton listed many positive aspects of the Judicial Branch, he also wrote about negative features the Judicial Branch has neglected to offer as stated in The Constitution. In The Constitution, there are three branches to help balance the government, to make sure there is no way to overpower any other branches within the system. The Executive Branch, which includes the president, is in charge of enforcing laws, the Legislative Branch controls making laws, and the Judicial Branch is a system of courts that interpret the laws created and enforced by the other branches.
Parliament in Britain is generally regarded as making laws that apply to the entire population but there is no universal agreement that it should have unlimited power to make laws of whatever kind. In many constitutions, legal limits on parliament to make laws are set out in their written constitutions but as Britain does not have such a written constitution, does it mean that there are no legal limits on parliament? The traditional doctrine of Parliamentary sovereignty was first defined by Dicey in the 19th century in his book “The Law of the Constitution”. According to Dicey’s theory, parliamentary sovereignty means, “the right to make or unmake any law whatever; and further, that no person or body is recognized by the law of England as having a ride to override or set asides the legislation of parliament.” This idea of parliament being sovereign was formed at time where England was not a democratic country and it could be argued that this theory is dated and can no longer be regarded as an immutable part of UK Constitutional law. If Dicey’s theory is placed in historical context, it was produced in a very different political environment to today.
The bill was written on October twentieth at eight p.m. and signed into law October twenty-first at four-thirty p.m. This law basically spit in the face of any jurisdiction any court in the United States had. Where was the due process? Due process is the idea that laws and legal proceedings must be fair. The Constitution guarantees that the government cannot take away a person's basic rights to 'life, liberty or property, without due process of law.'
The Enlightenment The Great Awakening Two important movements that changed the 1700’s were the Enlightenment and the Great Awakening. The Enlightenment began in Europe, which stressed reason and natural laws that explain the events. The Great Awakening awoke colonist about the religious fervor after it had started to die down.

The Enlightenment was in the eighteenth century intellectual movement that used the scientific method and reasons that meant obtaining knowledge.
An example is the Bill of Right 1689 which aimed to impose limitations on the powers of the crown and its relationship with parliament. It provided that parliament should meet regularly, elections to parliament should be free from interference by the monarchy and freedom of debate in parliament should not be impeached outside parliament. The Human Right Act 1998 is another important example, which incorporates the European Convention of Human Rights into our domestic law. It is significant as it marks a fundamental change in the protection of human rights by allowing citizens to raise breaches of their human rights in court. The Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949 was also significant as it altered the relationship between the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
In an overview, they express hostility towards big government, big business, big national debt, and big taxes. Their beliefs are surrounded upon the Constitution. “The constitution is a timeless document that guarantees our basic freedoms” (Tea Party Patriots). They claim to support all personal freedoms, as long as no harm comes to others or take away rights from other American people. The Tea Party movement believes no American President, Democrat, nor Republican should ever go beyond the Constitution, regardless of the issue at hand.
The first social revolution came about during a period of great change not only in Russia but throughout Europe. These changes developed across a wide spectrum, such as from religion to politics, from economic development and from changes in the societies of Europe as a whole. A lot of the change occurred on the back of the industrial revolution and the competition between the various powers in Europe to be the best, the strongest and the most advanced, both socially and technologically. This essay will try to give and insight into the background of the socialist revolution; what were the main triggers or causes which eventually led to the conflict, what were the main challenges which the Russian empire faced at the time. This will be explored alongside the ways in which developments in revolutionary methods were to the fore throughout Europe during this period.
The classical theory is a product of the Enlightenment period which is a period of history spanning roughly from 1517 to 1789. The Enlightenment period, or Age of Reason period, was charachterized by a direct intellectual challenge to the theological worldview. This challenge to the theological view was brought about by Enlightenment thinkers who promoted a more scientific view. Most Enlightenment thinkers drew many of their ideas from the Greek or Classical philosophers such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. These classical thinkers derove their reasonning from personnal observations.
