Depression and the New Deal is an important historical period that had huge impacts on American’s politic and economy during 1930s. This period has caught my interest because I really admire our president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, his political philosophy, and his New Deal plan. While many Americans were suffering from the depression, Roosevelt appeared as a hero to save and bring hopes to the country. He came up with his New Deal plan to help America’s economy improve and get rid of the depression. During the depression, Roosevelt had to carry heavy burdens on his shoulders because he had to face a lot of problem such as high unemployment rates, banking crisis, and starvation.
President Abraham Lincoln was one of great leaders of this nation. He exemplified leading by example and leading in the front. He developed leadership strategies that are practiced by the world’s greatest leaders. Today’s leaders can learn how to be successful leaders by incorporating characteristics of President Lincoln’s leadership philosophy into their own leadership style. President Lincoln built a strong presidency by taking the time to develop personal relationships.
Leadership Style Paper George Smith Patton Jr. George Patton led his troops to victory in North Africa, Sicily, and on the Western Front. He was admired by many followers and feared by his enemies. These victories led him to become one of the most memorable and historical leaders in American history (The New York Times, 2010). George Patton had many traits that added to his success as a leader, he was self-confident he had ambition and poise, and orderly thinking. All these types of traits can be found in other successful leaders throughout history.
There are several reasons as to why Lloyd George won the general election in 1918 such as his personal popularity, the success of the wartime coalition government in winning the war, the increased number of votes from the public and David Lloyd Georges decisions and promises made during the election campaign. Lloyd Georges personal popularity was mainly based on his achievements of leading the country successfully through the Great War after the collapse of Asquith's government. Although Lloyd George was a liberal himself, he became head of the coalition government, mainly of unionists or conservatives with Liberals and Labours support. He was increasingly seen as having the necessary energy to drive and achieve victory becoming the 'man who won the war'. The 1918 election subsequently became known as the coupon election in reference to the signed letter of endorsement that selected coalition candidates received from Lloyd George and the conservative leader Andrew Bonar Law.
Hitler became leader of Germany because he was leader of the most popular party’ How far do you agree with this statement? By 1933 Hitler had consolidated full power over Germany, it can be argued that the main reason he was able to achieve this power was purely down to the fact that he was the leader of the most popular party. However it seems to be clear that there are other factors, which resulted in Hitler becoming leader in Germany, such as the collapse of the Weimar constitution, the effects of the Great depression and the political actions of people such as Von Papen and Schleicher. Some may argue that Hitler had become such a powerful leader due to the popularity of the Nazi party. Anti – democratic figures had seen the Nazi party as potential allies to provide popular support for an authoritarian regime.
Pitt's early speeches, sparse as they were, enabled Pitt to set precedents and improve his reputation as a public speaker, largely because of Pitt's ability to say whatever he desired. The fact that Pitt was able to obtain such a position in the first place was hugely influenced by his father, as well as friends he had acquired throughout his upbringing. For it was Charles Manners, 4th Duke of Rutland (a former colleague of Pitt at university) who greatly aided Pitt in securing Lowther's patronage. Pitt's maternal uncle, George Grenville, was also an important British statesman. But it was Pitt the elder who perhaps made the most sizable contribution to Pitt's ascent.
He did this by telling the people that land fit for heroes would come out of the war. He also brought in social reforms which lead the working class people to agree with his actions so their life could gradually improve. Lloyd George also embodied a new mood of confidence and determination to England. Lloyd George also proved himself by turning around the 1915 shortage of munitions whilst acting as Minister of Munitions. This meant that he proved himself to the people of England that he was capable of running part of the country and could control a situation efficiently.
Being incredibly charismatic, and having a great campaign, Hitler was very likeable at first. Hitler used propaganda to make people like him, and to make the Nazi party seem the best option for Germany. He also held meetings for army and business leaders to woo them into liking his party, and to reassure them that the Nazi party was not to be feared. Hitler also changed his strategy and promised various things as the years went by, including promising to fight unemployment after the Great Depression, and becoming a non-violent speaker instead of a violent street protester after the Munich Putsch. This meant Germany always saw Hitler as trying to do good things, which made them like him enough to vote for his party.
With the use of “we” and “us”, he enabled those present to believe that his cause was their cause, that they were one “force”, united together in this 1936 campaign. Upon this united base, he established why he himself should be the one representing them as the president of the USA. He established himself as a man with a “long record” “of the spirit of the American form of government,” a record that was democratically based due to his familiar heritage and background that was understood among all. In addition to this, he connected himself to a well known NY governor who has a strong impact on the New Yorkians, his audience. Due to this familiarity, his ethos flowed into those present and connected them into believing they themselves had a hand in what was accomplished.
The reformers and federal government helped America economically by successfully creating reforms on a national level. Theodore Roosevelt is an example of a president during the Progressive Era. Roosevelt expanded the role of presidency in order to help the people in the country. He was considered to be an active president and a loose constructionist, who went beyond his role as a president. During his administration, congress took a back seat.
