This shows that Wolsey was a successful chief minister in terms of justice because he saw it as his duty to bring everyone justice no matter how rich they were. But there were times when Wolsey used the courts to further his own position and carry out personal vendettas against enemies. For example Wolsey had been put in the stocks by Paulet in a bid to teach the young man a lesson about humility and good grace. Wolsey never forgot his humiliation and used his position as Lord Chancellor to have his revenge. Source 8 supports this because it says 'But Wolsey's vision and his originality in
Athens was in fact a democracy and though it gave more freedom to its citizens, there were just too many people to run the government in anyway but chaotic. Athens assembly was composed of over 6,000 male citizens who voted on the laws. Sparta also had an assembly made up of male citizens who voted on the laws. Sparta and Athens both had a council.

With such privileges, the minority has an advantage over the rest of the population because of their access and ability to make things work in their favor. In Dracula’s case he is socially notorious for being a “vampire” (Stoker 14), but he still has a lot of money. In Dracula, the Count’s successes should indeed be primarily attributed to his capital. Almost every step of his plot is made easier due to his financial situation. Not to say that it would be insurmountable to scheme like Dracula without his monetary possessions, but, if anything, the Count’s success rate would be dwindling without the valuable capital that he utilizes.
The best president in U.S history I believe is Abraham Lincoln. Abe Lincoln deserved to be the best president because he led his country through the civil war, abolished slavery by issuing the emancipation proclamation, and by issuing the emancipation proclamation the north gained British support. Abe created an economic development program, which began when the country was bankrupt and made the United States the world’s greatest industrial power. I believe that the 2nd best president is George Washington. Washington led the revolutionary war which began the birth of a new nation which goes under foreign policy, helped with the constitution that had much to do with equal rights, and dealt with the whiskey rebellion.

Nineteenth-century populists could be seen as heirs of these Jacksonian Democrats. Both the democrats and the populists shared many of the same ideas with respect to overall objectives and specific proposals for reform. Jacksonian Democrats sought a greater amount of democracy in American government, mostly white males having the right to vote, and believed heavily in the spoils system,("To the victor belong the spoils"). Jackson established the spoils system to reform the government by removing some federal officeholders. Also, he gave elected officials the right to choose their own followers to public office.
The levellers were radical groups active in London in the late 1646 which gained a lot of their support from the army. This group was very popular among men of “middling sort” who were unrewarded in seventeenth century English politics. The leaders of these groups were John Lilburn and Richard Overton. Their main aim was for religious toleration and to also replace the monarchy and the House of Lords with a single representative chamber elected by the male leads of the households.

When thinking about ancient Rome in present day, students and historians usually make reference to one person, Julius Caesar, who is acknowledged as one of the most powerful dictators. The question remains, did the people of Rome believe that Caesar was a good ruler? Marcus Licinius Crassus was the wealthiest man in Rome through real estate, but his social status was very low.

With the help from Julius Caesar, he was able to achieve what he wanted, recognition from the Roman people, while Crassus in return reciprocated the favor by lending Caesar as much money as he needed in hopes of becoming

Also McClintock is the incumbent so this also reflects him as the champion and Emery and Curtis as the challengers.
