One of the factors that contributed to the debt was the limitation in trading. “For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world” (Jefferson 239). For many years, Puerto Rico has been controlled by the Jones Act, created in the beginning of the 20th century, “prohibits any foreign built or foreign flagged vessel from engaging in coastwise trade within the United States”(Jones Act). These laws created a sense in the Puerto Ricans thinking that they needed to depend from the United States so they could sustain themselves. These limitations made it impossible to trade with another country were the product was cheaper than the United States one.
Socially the war was not revolutionary because, there was still that one race that was not treated like they belonged and felt like they were taking up space. Politically the war was not revolutionary because, the imprisoned slaves were not allowed to be apart of the Declaration of Independence. Therefore Revolution was both revolutionary and not revolutionary because, of the three stated topics above. The American Revolution was the most important event in the history of the world since the birth of Christ,-stated by Richard Price. The Revolution was revolutionary based on economic factors because, as apart of the empire the colonies were protected from foreign invasion by the British military.
Every American is equal under the law and they can all quote you their rights, but many do not realize that political participation and civic involvement are a duty and not an option. In order for our American Constitutional Republic to thrive into the future and not just survive or coast by, we must all become more active and involved in both civic organizations and the political process. One of the major factors contributing to a lack of participation is the decline of the American family and family values. Former New York Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan blames the increase in deviant behavior on the increase of single parent families in the United States. It is easy to see how the decline of the traditional family can lead to an increase in deviance.
This meant that PR was never going to be fully developed as a colonial powerhouse but instead used to house a good deal of soldiers to keep a firm grip on Spanish colonial interest. Cuba was more the bread basket for the Spanish and would soon become the most important colony for the Spanish Crown. Because of President McKinley and teller Amendment after the Spanish American War the United States could not and frankly did not want to annex Cuba but it did annex PR, from then on the differences started to be apparent. The US did not want to annex Cuba because it did not want to fan the flames of anti-imperial groups in the states. Also the Cuban people had figures like Jose Marti who petitioned for Cuban independence in the United States, one of the main reasons the US actually got involved was because of people like Marti who ran such a successful slander campaign on the treatment of the Cuban people by the Spanish.
The quality of the healthcare would be drastically lower than in a Capitalist country, as we can observe in modern day Cuba. If America were Socialist If America turned into a socialist state, like Canada, many things would be changed. In my opinion, things would be changed for the worst. Advantages of socialism include universal health care, a fairer distribution of wealth, and the Government providing the general population with basic survival needs. Thinking on a smaller scale, the purchase of cars and other consumer products would not be affected.
However not all Americans believed the U.S should become an imperialist country. The Filipinos wanted freedom and annexation violated consent of the governed. Fighting broke out Emilio Aguinaldo appointed himself president of the Philippine Republic. The Filipinos did not fight conventionally; they were not skilled enough in battle, so they engaged in guerrilla warfare.it became a longer and costlier conflict than the one in Spain. The U.S is not justified in annexing the Philippines and fighting a war to keep it because it was just a chance to exploit people and land to earn power and prestige.
Contrary to popular belief, the American Revolution did not bring about change, because the rights, class structure and government remained the status quo in the colonies. For the most part, the rights of the colonists did undergo a transformation because of the Revolutionary War. It is a widely held belief that the war was declared in defense of the natural rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Unfortunately, the war did little in protecting these rights. After the war, there was still no liberty for blacks; in fact, the colonists disliked the idea of granting freedom to Blacks that they refused their offer to fight on the side of the patriots.
The parliament would have been able to muster volunteers, but there was no money to equip them with weapons, and the only way that the Parliament would have been able to make money, would be by introducing taxes. However, the Parliament simply couldn’t just create money from taxes as everyone refused to pay the taxes. The payment of taxes could have been enforced, but there was no army to do the enforcement. There were no consequences to the people of the German Empire if they disobeyed the decisions of the Frankfurt Parliament, so decisions were not followed by the people. This was not surprising, as there was no previous history of a democracy in Germany before the Frankfurt Parliament, therefore there was not much support from the ordinary people for the new concept.
Occupy Wall Street Movement By Dennis Yutuc BUS 309 Professor Abedin Occupy Wall Street, a movement in which they oppose the idea of government saving major banks and other financial institutions. The feeling that these institutions are taking money to better them and not their clients probably escalated due to the ethical financial unrest this country has gone thru and is slowly trying to get out of. Prior to this, personally, I have never heard of this movement here in the states. Seen news and Internet posts about them all over the world but never saw it here in this country. It may have been around, but was not a huge movement until all this business with Enron, Goldman Sachs, and others were scrutinized over their financial
Venice’s growing influence in the region made it unpopular amongst the various mainland states. In 1508, the League of Cambrai, which was formed against Venice, it was consisted of major powers in Europe such as Spain, Hungary and France. Venice also lost some of her resources. Venice fought with big states like France and Spain; therefore it is impossible for Venice to win. The discovery of a new trade route by a Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama destroyed Venice’s monopoly in the popular spices trade.
