Being President, Monroe had a significant amount of power over the country and its government. Monroe’s Doctrine opened the floodgates for Manifest Destiny after the nation knew the government was behind it. Document A provides evidence that Monroe was correct with his prediction that America would follow the government’s lead and head west to protect the country through Manifest Destiny. The strongest argument against Manifest Destiny was the fact that would bring slavery to the new territories America gained. Not only was this false, Americans and politicians who were anti-slavery overlooked this because spreading what they considered America’s good qualities was more important to them and they wanted to follow Monroe’s Doctrine.
And with the Independence came a new way of thinking. They were already different from their former metropolis but since the agreement all the differences, by which they decided to be an independent country, became more evident. The 4th of July, day in which the Declaration of Independence was signed, it is the most important day in American history but it is still being a reason of proud. Anyone can be proud of its origins but American people go further; two reasons can be found: their pride is because the getting out of the natives of the east of America and later they used them as slaves, or on the other hand it is because after realizing that they cannot get them out, they killed them. Moreover, they are proud of their troops, and again two possible theories apart from the best-known.
Mostly the Anti-Federalists thought that the Constitution created too strong of a central government. They felt that the Constitution did not create a Federal government, but a single national government. They were afraid that the power of the states would be lost and that the people would lose their individual rights because a few individuals would take over. As a result, they proposed The Bill of Rights, to make sure the citizens were protected by the law. They believed that no Bill of Rights would be equal to no check on our
Jordan Lockler ENG 101 6 September 2010 Thomas Jefferson The Declaration of Independence The Declaration of Independence is definitely one of the most important documents in the history of the United States. Drafted by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence was America’s notice to the world of its new found freedom. It is a summary of "self-evident truths"(Jefferson) and a list of complaints against King George that set America apart from England forever. When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, he predicted the coming of great changes within the times that he lived in. The way that Jefferson set up the Declaration of Independence made the article very influential.
Congress men always think twice about the fact of losses of their States and their Civilians. Therefore the Congress now desired to build up upon nothing that would invent their opponent. The main concept behind all of these was nothing but to create a strong centralized government which is having more decentralized in authority and power. Congress felt establishing a weak national government will win the approval that time simply because it didn’t threaten or didn’t change the basic concepts of the exciting British laws among the States. Somehow they knew the limitation on the powers of Congress will be became more obvious once they change the method.
Samuel Adams was, in my opinion, a “real American hero” during the pre-Revolutionary period in American history. He was influential in securing independence from Britain, and supported civil and economic rights for the American people. In addition, his role in the establishment of the Sons of Liberty, the committees of correspondence, and the 1st Continental Congress was instrumental in America’s shift towards independence. He brewed up support for the American Revolution in his various essays and speeches to his people. More than a decade before the Declaration of Independence, Adams wrote that individuals were "inalienably entitled to those essential rights in common with all men," which was a key theme in the Declaration of Independence.
It puts people of the country at risk when the government is so open and willing to go to war. One thing that is good with Machiavelli’s government is the idea that, “it is better to be feared than loved”. If a leader is just loved that is good but the people will not follow him, which means there is no government at all. A leader who is feared may not be the people’s favorite but at least he will have his orders followed. Lao-Tzu and Machiavelli have two very different views on government, but Lao-Tzu’s method is the superior
The first one is that our rights are not well enough protected. If we had a written constitution with a proper Bill of Rights, as they have in America, we would feel safer and more sure that we would be protected from governments that wish to take too much power. We have lost many of our rights in the UK and this is because we do not have a written Bill of Rights and because government and Parliament have too much uncontrolled power. Another argument is that the people of the UK would feel more patriotic and identify more with politics if there was a written and codified constitution as they have in the USA. Every American citizen knows about their constitution and they are proud of it.
While a penny may seem insignificant and mundane, its monumental value too is special. From the desert of Death Valley to the tips of Mount McKinley, the penny serves as an essential persona of everyday life, as well as a symbol of our national roots. Both a convenient and recognizable component of modern American life, the penny is far too entrenched to be easily uprooted. In fact, the cost inherent in the abolition of the penny would be tremendous, and simply illogical to the “benefits” of such revolutionary change. To rid out economy of the penny, the government would first needed to confront a public greatly in favor of preserving the penny.
Also, when America itself has problems, we should be more focused on correcting our own country rather than helping others. Not many people realize the fact that the U.S. really isn’t doing as well as we should be. Putting money into operations such as “Operation Iraqi Freedom” because of the fact that we lost an incredible amount of money on something pretty pointless. Iraq is still terrible and will continue to be terrible. Spending money on improving other countries isn’t always going to have a positive impact.
