This was established to ensure that our representatives could be renewed as often as needed to reflect the public’s beliefs. Proponents for term limitations feel that officials can become corrupt and abusive of their position. These groups wish to limit the overall time that an official can hold office to ensure that new blood will be able to inject new ideas and beliefs. The opposite to this thought is that by injecting new blood we will lose the experienced politicians that know how to get things done in the complex world of politics. There is a sharp learning curve that comes with holding
After the French Revolution though, the republic slowly began shifting to a totalitarian regime, first under the Committee of Public Safety and then completely under Napoleon Bonaparte .The facts show that the American Revolution was more successful in establishing a stable and long-lasting republican government that started a precedent for Europe, while the French Revolution’s republic failed to last, being turned into a totalitarian regime. Events leading up to the American and French Revolutions occurred for a similar reason: unfair representation. The people in the American colonies became progressively upset with Britain and its Parliament when they refused the colonists’ representation, while still imposing many different taxes on the colonists. Upset over this tax on one of their most valued imports, the colonists dumped all the tea into the Boston Harbor during the Boston Tea Party. This showed that the colonists were willing, and able, to live without depending on the British government.
His decision for expressing these words is mainly based on historical facts. King Archidamus claims that if their unprepared population decides to ignore these facts, it will bring a greater harm to their population. In contrast, their foe, the Athenians have access to a variety of essential resources such as, a strong navy and their numerous tax-paying allies allows them to achieve a higher chance of victory at war. (1.80). Therefrom, due to these important facts, the wise king Archidamus strongly encourages their population to postpone their attack and to prepare their army instead.
Succeeding James I was Charles I, and his policies propelled England to civil war. In the early seventeenth century, political and economic conflicts between the English monarchy and Parliament resulted in the English Civil War. James I’s political and economic struggles with Parliament are what began the slump of the English government. He believed in the “divine right” of kings, meaning that he considered himself to be God’s representative on Earth and no one could challenge his authority. Because he wanted as little interaction with Parliament as possible, he levied new custom duties called impositions to raise funds.
Terrell Richardson AP US History November 26, 2012 Ms. Lister Period 4 The Presidency of Thomas Jefferson The election of Thomas Jefferson was seen as a revolution for Democratic-Republicans because the Federalists were losing power in government. Even though Jefferson was a Republican, he was believed to compromise with the Federalist beliefs for the good of the nation. Professor Morton Borden argues that Jefferson was a pragmatic politician who placed the nation’s best interests above his own. Professor Forrest McDonald believes that Jefferson was trying to replace Hamilton’s Federalist Principles with Republican’s. Jefferson supported ideas that were beneficial to the nation even if he had to compromise with the Federalists which caused him to be seen as a political compromiser.
Some others figured that that was now highly unlikely at that they were now stuck in a revolution they did not ask for. Most colonists, though, agreed that the time for independence was now, and that there were no other options. These ideas were exemplified in the legendary document Common Sense, written by the Revolutionary, Thomas Paine. The writing of Common Sense state many reasons for the colonists rebelling against England, and justifies each important reason. Thomas Paine exposes the monarchy for the sham that it really is, explains why people seek refuge in the New World from the tyranny and persecution of the Old World, and lays the groundwork and expresses ideas of what the Continental congress should be, and how this kind of government, by the people, for the people, will keep America from breaking out in civil war.
But the reaganites said that the low unemployment obsession had pushed up public expenditure and led to budget deficits and stagflation and they believed in supply side economics which emphasised growth. Even Reagan’s budget director, David Stockman, in 1981 admitted that the administration’s plan did not add up and would probably increase the federal deficit. Reagan appeared regularly on TV to promote his economic policy and this helped account for his success. Many Americans did not like his policies but like him and his role in the successful passage of the budget clearly hinged squarely upon his ‘great communicator’ talents. This shows that his policies did not get off to a good start as his budget director and the public did not like his policies.
But people still need to recognise we have an institutional responsibility to do oversight on the President” Garry Bass, Congress. This quote supports my view on the Congress being a watchdog. If the Congress is a lapdog, the President can have a free ride on running the country how he wishes and not represent the people’s view. However that is not the case as the President cannot do everything which pleases him. However, looking at the statistics such as Bill Clintons presidency, in the first 2 years which was a united government, Congress exercised limited oversight, and when needed to, asked softball questions, however , when Republicans took over Congress, things got much harder as they seek to hold the President to account, and after a while, impeach.
He was quite satisfied with the treaty. In front of his people, as a member of parliament, he needed the support of the public to succeed in elections and if he came across as being soft on Germany, he would have been voted out. The British people wanted revenge and Lloyd George's public image reflected this mood. "Hang the Kaiser" and "Make Germany Pay" were two very common calls in the era immediately after the end of the war. However, in private Lloyd George thought that the treaty was probably too harsh and he predicted that history would repeat itself, saying ‘‘We shall have to fight another war again in 25 years’ time.’’ the economist John Maynard Keynes prophesied that reparations would ruin the economy of Europe.
