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.
In 2025, the emerging powers suggest the rise of a multi-polar world. In 1913, 37% of the global GDP was dominated by the British Empire, 19% by the USA and 9% by both China and Germany. To understand why the British Empire dominated 37% of the world’s global GDP the rigid control that the British Empire had over the world needs to be understood. At its height, during the reign of Queen Victoria, the British Empire had included a quarter of the world's land and people. From the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 to the start of World War I in 1914, Britain acquired so many new colonies that the empire stretched around the world.

The difficulty with this approach, as it later became clear, was that the problems identified by liberal sociologists set many educators to work in opposition to working class cultural practices. What happened with the liberal view of education is that culture is seen as a cause of inequality rather than as one of the effects. However, an advantage that liberal sociology did had was governmental confidence, as is often the case with quantitative research, and as a result, it enjoyed the freedom to engage in empirical research and had a chance to influence educational reform. The origins of the sociology of education in England grew directly out of the research interests of a number of sociologists who were primarily interested in social mobility, and in particular, with the way that arrangement of inequality persisted in education. Many studies where carried out that concentrated on the relationship between class and educational opportunity.
Savannah A As quoted by Lyndon B. Johnson, “We believe, that is, you and I, that education is not an expense. We believe it is an investment”. This investment in a liberal education is what drives our nation, price-tag aside, into a successful future. Although a liberal education is an imperative investment, it is also a financial struggle for most people. In the text, “College at Risk” by Andrew Delbanco, a man best described as someone who believes that the ideal of a liberal education is essential, but also believes that it is “threatened by a world undergoing radical social, technological, and economic changes” (220).
p. A35). Krugman’s clearly strong liberal political views stem back to his political socialization. Krugman is the son of David and Anita Krugman and the grandson of Jewish immigrants from Brest-Litovsk (2011. The New York Times). The September 10, 2009 Wall Street Journal article, “Why are Jews Liberal?” researched and found that since 1928, the average Jewish vote for the Democrat in presidential elections has been an amazing 75 percent (2009.
She is a moderate, centrist Democrat who will give a hard nod to the interests of minorities, gays and women. She will continue and expand Obama's policies that expand government programs and initiatives, hike spending on education, health care, and jobs and markedly increase taxes on corporations and the wealthy while enforcing and even tightening regulations on the banks and Wall Street. There will be more polls that purport to show Clinton is failing, phony, manufactured Clinton scandals, calls for Biden to run, and starry eyed boasts that Sanders, not Clinton, is the party's hope. But none of this will change the one constant about Clinton and that's she's still the only candidate who has the qualities that Americans demand when picking a president. That's not a prescription for a Clinton
Most individuals wish to live in a just society, but different political ideologies have different conceptions of what a 'just society' actually is. The term "social justice" is often employed by the political liberal perspective to describe a society with more economic equalitarianism, which may be achieved through progressive taxation and income redistribution. The right wing also uses the term social justice, but generally believes that a just society is best achieved through the operation of a free market, which they believe provides equality of opportunity. In Sanders case he was the 13th juror and that upset him because he didn’t have a say at the end of the trial. Sanders didn’t want the defendant to go to jail that’s why being the 13th defendant really bothered him a lot.
Yet many of us continue to place great stock in these words, believing them to describe one of the ultimate goods that a college or university should serve. So what exactly do we mean by liberal education, and why do we care so much about it? In speaking of “liberal” education, we certainly do not mean an education that indoctrinates students in the values of political liberalism, at least not in the most obvious sense of the latter phrase. Rather, we use these words to describe an educational tradition that celebrates and nurtures human freedom. These days liberal and liberty have become words so mired in controversy, embraced and reviled as they have been by the far ends of the political spectrum, that we scarcely know how to use them without turning them into slogans—but they can hardly be separated from this educational tradition.
People once thought that the greatest obstacles to individual freedom and equality were political. They believed they could preserve freedom simply by changing the form of government from a monarchy to a republic. They claimed that the government that governs least governs the best. But in time, many persons became convinced that some government regulations of society and the economy were necessary to preserve personal freedom and equality, as well as to improve the welfare of the nation. In today’s democracies, the government plays an active role in removing inequalities and promoting freedom for all.
