Before the wars powers resolution the President even had more power because he didn’t have to discuss anything with congress. When you have this type of power it could go to your head and you might make some bad decisions. And one bad decision could cost our country. As Chief Diplomat, the President has the hard job of dealing with foreign nations. He needs to always be aware of what is going on in the other worlds without
Considering this, politicians, “must be bold and dramatic eonugh to get their messaage across- always in competition with millions of others- without plunging to their death” (Pg 187). With that said there are rules between the politicians and the press. These rules include “background”, which means the reporter cannot quote you by name but can still describe you as much as desired, “deep background”, meaning the reporter can’t even vaguely describe you (usually identifying you as “the
Although the similarity between the two is slim, the president is a real and very important person in the USA. Big Brother in Oceania was presumably a made-up figure. He was not one person; he was many people running the government. If an Oceania did anything that did not benefit Big Brother’s system they would be annihilated sooner or later as a result. Love, Happiness, and Pleasure was forbidden within the society.
As America’s hero from the Revolutionary War and first president, Washington was given many responsibilities for the new nation. As our first president, Washington had many difficult decisions to make with no precedents to turn to for guidance. Many men would have become corrupt or tried to seize as much power as possible if placed in Washington’s shoes, but George was noble and had the responsibility to respect the constitution and do his job to best serve the country. Washington made no attempt to become dictator, to establish a monarchy (though he had no heir), nor to retain power for too long. After his second term he stepped down from president setting a precedent himself.
This should not be seen as the problem of the government but the problem of the entire populace of America who are the taxpayers. As can be seen, the healthcare reform by president Obama will only cause deep problems to the people of America than the benefits it is expected to bring them. it seems the Obama administration was not committed to the people of America as they had made them belief in the run for his elections and this has only come to the fore recently and exposed his true image
As it is a sensitive subject that could potentially alienate a whole sect of the electorate it is rarely mentioned and if taken action upon it is usually through the route of executive orders once the president is securely in office. This is shown by the Obama campaign. He rarely mentioned race based policies but after the 2014 mid terms he executed his immigration reform via the use of executive order. This means that the electorate are not particularly troubled by the issue of race because it is no longer important; and instead it is just something that the president decides to take a personal stance on in
(Bradley & Goldsmith, pg. 2091) Congress intended the President to have this kind of power so that he could use his powers of military force against a foreign enemy/force without having to go through the necessary, long steps of declaring war. Without this power, the President would be at a “unilateral disadvantage” and not be able to take and carry out the war effectively. (Bradley & Goldsmith, pg. 2091) Though, there could be some delegation within that matter to argue that the President does not have the full powers of war because they are not “implicitly delegated” by the Congress to the President.
The authors comments stress how important it is for the military forces to remain in Afghanistan according to military officials but fails to expand on why the President of Karzai refuse to sign an agreement that would benefit them from their presence, a President that was placed in power for over a decade because of the United States, and he know he don’t have the extra military equipment the United States possess that he benefitted from, nor do he have the financial means to sustain the military forces he needs. For a man that could only benefit, from the information presented implies the security agreement contain information the President don’t feel is beneficial for his country. The basic understanding that can be deduced from the article is the Afghan soldiers learned a lot from the military presence of the United States and they are equipped with the military prowess to combat the Taliban and they no longer want the United States involved or present in their country; even though, the Afghans can benefit from the United Military aid and financial
With the onset of the Second World War, the US stepped out as a world super power and the executive gained exclusive jurisdiction over foreign policy which in the 21st century now acts as a big role which the executive must be active in. Due to the fact the constitution doesn’t refer to foreign policy it has led to the president becoming very powerful in this role as the constitution bodes no constraint on it, meaning he can do ‘what he pleases’ as there is no check on the presidents over sight process. This exposes another flaw in the constitution written and devised in the 18th century, as once again it disregards some major governmental policies which have only recently come about. In addition, when the US constitution was written there were only 3 sectors in office ‘war, office and treasury’ this has now changed dramatically and the executive now has many sections – once again the constitution has not taken these into account and therefore doesn’t work on a ‘government’
Obviously in the world of politics no money can be willingly donated without the expectation of something in return. This is usually in the form of somewhat influencing the legislative and executive branches of government to benefit their cause. The financial support significantly manipulates the way politicians vote on measures; they tend to listen to campaign funders and lobbyists above anyone else, passing laws which benefit only a small population of people whilst simultaneously impairing the rest of the nation. The lack of transparency with regards to bundlers ignites the speculation on corruption as the Federal Election Commission does not require campaigns to disclose the names of bundlers unless they are registered lobbyists. This raises suspicions as bundlers who accumulate a lot of money for candidates are more likely to receive dubious favors, such as government grants, loans or lucrative
