Our country is as divided as ever and there is a substantial lack of unity among the political parties and the citizens of the United States. At the federal level, the two political parties refuse to work together in the best interest of our country. In addition to seeking reelection, their main focus is furthering their political agenda as they refuse to compromise and negotiate with one another. In addition, citizens do not feel accurately represented by these elected federal officials. The citizens are given limited options when voting because only the dominant parties have a realistic chance of winning.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945) or just known as FDR was the 32nd President of the United States of America (1933-1945). Roosevelt was the longest serving President in US history, in total serving four terms in office. No other President will be able to have that longevity in office. Moreover the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States approved by Congress on February 27 1951, denies the chance for a President being elected twice. However they were key reasons why FDR won the election and assumed the presidency, in 1933 the presidential election was conducted under the shadow of the
It is hard to see what Mr Obama means when he says this – other than that some inner voice has told him to run for president.” Well, politicians hardly ever say what they mean and hardly ever mean what they say.

UNLIKE presidential contests, America’s mid-term elections do not seem to inspire many people. In 2012 fully 59% of registered voters turned up at the polls for the presidential election. But two years earlier just 42% bothered to cast their votes in the 2010 mid-term elections, and this year’s turnout may be even lower. Few are as uninterested as the young. In 2010 the turnout of people aged 18 to 24 was just 21%.
Over the past 200 years, power in the U.S. has shifted towards the President; President Regan, who wanted to give power back to the states instead of centralizing it, challenged this. Our current President, Barrack Obama, sides with President Roosevelt’s New Deal policy, which attempts to centralize power. President Obama caused great excitement with his ideas of change for America, but his administration is far less popular today due to policies he implemented. President Nixon argued against the notion that the President is becoming to powerful, stating that if we did in fact have an “Imperial” Presidency, then reelection would be much easier, but since President Roosevelt, we have only seen five reelections.
