A pressure group is a group that tries to influence public policy in the interest of a particular cause. There are many pressure groups around the world, from well-known organisations such as Amnesty International, to lesser-known pressure groups such as the Zip Fastener Manufacturers’ Administration. However, no matter the size, they all have something in common; that they want their voices to be heard. Pressure groups undermine democracy because, although they improve participation, they are said to do this in an unequal way. Critics say that pressure groups benefit the well organised but they disadvantage the weakly organised, subsequently working against the public interest.

People believed that it limited the governor to implement public policy.

As whoever is in power at the time of the change wants to stay in power. The Public fear the government's involvement in any changes they make to the NHS, especially when it is a political party with an ideology that leans more to the right wing. As their political views, depending on how far to the right they sit, believe that the private sector should provide the care.
Kalisha McCoy Essay Submission for the Six Nations (2nd Gen. Doc. Seneca-Black-Irish) 4th Class It is apparent to me that most of the problems in America stem from their political system. Two major political parties that are supposed to be running their country seemingly are not. The so called politics in the country have become a childish fight between two groups not about who can come up with, and enforce a good idea, but instead with enforcing the most ideas. Democrats and Republicans spend most of the time not fighting for America, but fighting against each other for no other reason than the fact that they come from "different sides".

Throughout time, historians often made arguments regarding the American Revolution and deciding whether or not it was radical. Regarding this issue, I stand on the radical side.

America Falling Apart: National Identity & Consumerism In Anthony Burgess’ Is America Falling Apart, Burgess states that America is not where it should be. Our nation for all we portray it to be has many issues, which cannot be easily solved, as they are part of the social fabric that holds us together. If we were to go out and proclaim about the ills that senseless consumerism brings us to our society we would be laughed upon, as we don’t see them as issues, but part of our greater American identity. Americans view consumerism as part of our identity, but our fascination on it does not allow us to appreciate the greater things in life, which play a much more important role in who we are. The United States of America comprises only 4% of the world’s population yet with our few numbers we manage to use around 25% of the world’s oil.
