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 the process, they could hold back a number of potential rebellions and create a consensus of popular support for the rule of a new, privileged leadership.When we look at the American Revolution this way, it was a work of genius, and the Founding Fathers deserve the awed tribute they have received over the centuries. They created the most effective system of national control devised in modern times, and showed future generations of leaders the advantages of combining paternalism with command. 2. According to Zinn, how did the creation of the United States benefit the upper class? They created a world where a few families owned most of the wealth.
The first document I will analyze is The Declaration of Independence which I consider to be the most influenced by Locke's ideology of any document the founders drafted. This document was the official proclamation of freedom from the tyrannical rule of England over the American colonies. Thomas Jefferson, the chief architect of the Declaration of Independence was heavily influenced by Locke's philosophy of government which can easily be seen in the Declaration's text. For the most part, Locke would be
A DUAL IDENTITY IN COLONIAL AMERICA John Hamblen Professor Binnington History 162 Word Count: October 18, 2012 By looking through the 18th Century, one can see that the North American colonists possessed an identity of both British and colonial aspects of society. Immigrants from the British Empire helped shape the dual identity of colonies. People of different faiths and religions wanted a place where land was cheap and labor was needed. They wanted a society in which they could live their lives the way they wanted to. While living in their ideal society, the British Empire wanted the colonist to think of themselves as British subjects but at the same time to consider their identity of colonists.
He pointed out about arriving to see the Indians, who “received [them] in a friendly manner” (60). These Indians did not receive them as a threat, so they offered their houses as meeting places for their worship. After talking about setting up his mill, Townsend illustrates how “Proprietor [Penn] treated the Indians with extraordinary humanity” (60). The Indians never took advantage of him, and merely returned the favor. The Indians who came to Pennsylvania were “exasperated by the hard treatment” (60) of the other colonies who never even made an effort towards peaceful relations, and greatly appreciated the Pennsylvanians.
He did a very good job on his presidency and he had many important achievements. I would definitely have voted for Jefferson because he was brilliant and he understood the needs of the people. As mentioned above, he helped to write the Declaration of Independence and the constitutional law. Lastly, he argued fundamentally that a federal government that had too much authority over its people would ultimately undergo a revolution.

Colonists were provided with even more reason to practice their religion and continue their work in America for a better, more liberated life. England's success at colonizing, what would become the United States, was due in large part to its use of charter companies. Charter companies were groups of stockholders, usually merchants and wealthy land owners, who sought personal economic gain. While the private sector financed the companies, the King provided each project with a charter conferring economic rights as well as political authority. The colonies generally did not show quick profits.
Thomas Jefferson and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Two of Americas Greatest Advocates for Liberty and Freedom Thomas Jefferson’s, “Declaration of Independence”, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jrs, “Letter from a Birmingham jail”, are two of the finest documents advocating social reorganization through revolution ever written. The reasons each strove to incite revolution, social and political reorganization were the same, as they always are when the time comes to take drastic measures against the state, equality. The times each lived in, the advisories opposed , and the tactics employed to ferment the social revolutions each were engaged in, are as different as night and day, red, and white wine, and black and white. Despite these differences both authors are writing to their peers to justify their actions, and appeal for support. Both also argue that when the laws of man come into conflict with the laws of God, that civil disobedience is not only justified, but is a moral obligation.
“Common Sense” was the pamphlet written by Thomas Paine which was published in 1776 in which he talks about why there is need for American independence and argues for self-governed nation. Paine uses the basic format of proposal and even after so many years, this piece of writing remains of the best written articles in the history of United States. Paine used the common language of the people which helped him prove his point more effectively. Paine begins his argument with the basic and theoretical reflections about the British Government and then explains more about the specifics of colonial situation. He then gives various evidences which were easily interpretive and understandable by the common American.
In Rhode Island, Williams established a Baptist church, with freedom of religion. He encouraged no taxes to support a state church as well as no oaths regarding religious beliefs. Rhode Island was the shelter for banished religious rebels and the religious tolerance made Rhode Island more liberal than any other of the English settlements. In
