He is often thought of as one of the most popular presidents. Andrew Jackson was democratic in many ways; he was a supporter of the common people, he helped the “transfer of national power from the country house to the farmhouse” (Document B), and be believed in the power of the people and “that all offices – whether appointed or elected – must ultimately fall under the absolute control of the people” (Document D). By believing and supporting in the people, Jackson won the favor over many americans. During his presidency, Jackson made many statements about offices and how long their terms should be and how they should be elected by the people, rather than by other offices (Document D). This won the favor of the public in many ways, mainly due to the fact that they saw a president who was representing them, rather than only wanting to put themselves into a higher position.
Jeffersonian Democracy – Women were not eligible for office holding, for Jefferson often questioned their intelligence. The educated elite males should be the ones in office. Jacksonian Democracy – Jackson used the spoils system for decisions for positions in office. All white males were believed to be qualified and positions should be alternated over time. How were candidates for president chosen?
Foreign policy is important because it has a lot to do with the trade, technology, and communications of the United States. Also by nations working together global problems can be fixed easier. Equal rights are important to the U.S because it shows that everyone has the same rights including: black people, white people, Asian, men and woman, ect. A bad president would make the economy go down, not believe in equal rights and have a bad foreign policy. The best president in U.S history I believe is Abraham Lincoln.
Also, he gave elected officials the right to choose their own followers to public office. Jacksonian Democrats also sought “relaxed property qualifications to vote”. Jacksonian Democrats were all about representing the common man, and, since it represented the powerful and wealthy eastern people trumping over poor farmers, they shut down the “Second Bank of The United States”. Populists were also about representing the common man. In fact, they wanted “free and unlimited coinage of silver” to help debtor farmers in the west that had borrowed gold from wealthy western Americans.
More than anything else, these two presidents were very different. To start with Lincoln's main goal was to preserve the Union. On the other hand, Davis's main goal was to build a new government. This was a very difficult considering that he had to do this while fighting a civil war Lincoln was self-educated, read a lot, and had a good sense of humor. And during his presidency he had trouble finding able leaders.
They preferred a pretty strict construction of the constitution and look down on Hamilton’s ideas for a national bank and saw them as unconstitutional. The party promoted states' rights and they were threatened by the supposed, the far too powerful tendencies of the Federalist Party which they had seen before with Great Britain. These Democratic Republicans favored Agriculture and opposed the tariffs that Hamilton had proposed; for these supporters mostly included skilled workers, small scale farmers, and plantation owners. So it is safe to say the majority of these types of supporters were vast in the southern frontier states as opposed to their rivals in the northeastern states who were more on the business side of things. Democratic Republicans all in all wanted things to remain the same in the U.S government because they felt that giving more power to the national government by way of national bank or tax would slowly get rid of the people’s voice in politics creating a rerun of the previous outcome with Great Britain.
Although Jacksonian democrats thought themselves to be defenders of the “common man” they only reached out to white males. All white males over twenty-one gained the right to vote even though they did not own property. Women didn’t gain any new rights and neither did slaves. Jackson then passed the Indian Removal Act which gave the Federal Government power to relocate Native Americans. This led to Indian suffrage and deaths of thousands of Native Americans.
Roosevelt’s republican party split, Taft’s separation from the ideas of Roosevelt, and Wilson’s democratic perspective bring light to the idea that although these men shared the progressive opinion, their ideas differed in many ways. Theodore Roosevelt was the brain behind the progressive party that would eventually lead to the split of the Republican party. Roosevelt called for the “Square Deal” between business, consumers, and labor and supported the “Strenuous Life”. Unlike the others, Roosevelt wished to destroy bad trusts and regulate the good ones rather than break them all up. Roosevelt was the first president to introduce progressive ways of thinking and although each president’s ideas were similar in ways such as trust busting and conservation measures, his ideas were the framework for the U.S. William Howard Taft was the presidential candidate hand picked by Roosevelt.
Leadership and Management Suzanne Hickle 6/09/2014 LDR/300 Mark Guberman Winston Churchill was what many would call a world of a leader. He led his country through the biggest turmoil of the 20th century. In present day his notoriety and leadership ability is still a common desire among politician figure heads as well as those leading a country through a difficult time. Being a good leader is not always about what you have accomplished or what you have defeated in your time served. Having leadership skills is what makes a good leader a great leader.
Equality Opportunity’ in that the burdens of racism can only be overcome by taking race into account. Affirmative action also aims to reflect the racial diversity of the nation, the ‘Equality of Results’, within schools, the firm and the workplace. Despite being mainly supported by Democrats, and rejected by Republicans President Nixon played a significant role in affirmative action by instituting ‘set aside’ policies to reserve a certain percentage for minorities. The main advantage of affirmative action is that is leads to a greater diversity in societies main institutions, arguably this would not be achieved had things been left as they were. It is also argued on the basis of righting those previously wronged, by opening areas of education and employment that would not have previously been available to minorities.
