Someone facing the crisis that this man faced should have support from the government because it’s the government’s job to protect its citizens and support them if they cannot survive on their own. “Only a strong ruling entity—the state—will end the perpetual strife and provide security” (Hobbes 25). Occupy Wall Street’s (OWS) main argument is that our government needs to
After spending the primary season trying to prove they are most in tune with their party, they run for election on the basis of being most in tune with the nation. However, large swaths of the nation are at odds with the social contracts that politician holds with their party (or, otherwise, they would all be members of that party). This sets up the confusing political structure in American culture where politicians must first promise their parties they care strongly about certain issues, then assure the rest of the country that they do not actually care that strongly (Strom 1990). This confusing political structure emerges directly out of the conflicts in the
Barack Obama’s Speech The speech is about that the nation has a choice, a choice of which path America is going on. He is talking about history and what his grandparents did to live and fight for their country. Because they knew they were a part of something bigger. He talks about how the others not will help the middle class of America but the one who’s got money enough, that he will take money away from the students and put family’s on the street just so the wealthy can have lower taxes. But not Obama he will cut taxes for those who needs it, like middleclass and small businesses.
“The electoral college should be replaced by a national popular vote.” Discuss (45) The Electoral College is an institution that was established by the founding Fathers to elect the President of the United States indirectly. The Electoral College is a system that should be abolished and replaced by direct election through a national popular vote. Supporters of the national popular vote make convincing arguments that it is the best system to decide the Presidential election in a society as vast as the United States. However, there are arguments that suggest the Electoral College should not be replaced by a national popular vote. When evaluating the arguments raised on both sides it I believe that the Electoral College should be replaced by a national popular vote.
The idea that voters could choose presidential candidates was new because normally only a select number of people would be able to do so. Teddy Roosevelt, in one of his many speeches, supported the idea of direct nominations by the people. Roosevelt did not however just support the direct presidential primary; he also supported the direct election of senators. He believed that the past experiences of elections led way to the idea “that senators should be elected by direct vote of the people” (doc D). The support of the progressive reformers and the president led to an eventual amendment to the constitution.
One idea was to have him selected by the congress, this idea was thrown out because people thought that it would be used to serve the congresses purpose. The second option was to have the state legislatures decide who became president this idea was thrown out for the same reason. Eventually they decided that the president would be chosen by a popular vote. The archaic nature of this comes from the similarities to the primitive roman system (which quincedently is the same
The Twelfth Amendment, ratified in 1804, changed the method of voting in the Electoral College by requiring the electors to cast separate ballots for President and Vice President. (Originally, the electors voted for two candidates for President, with the runner-up becoming Vice President.) But the point of the amendment was to make party competition compatible with the separation of powers by securing the President's independence from Congress. Without that change in the Constitution, the power of electing the President effectively would have devolved from the people (represented indirectly in the Electoral College) to the House of Representatives, where ties between presidential and vice presidential candidates would be decided (as in 1800), and where all sorts of electoral mischief was
So the tug-of-war between the president and Congress is a special part (271). The framers had never envisioned that the presidency of the United States of America would become such a democratic office. They were afraid of tyranny and the pressure of the public opinion and made the Electoral College in a way that its members would be chosen in a manner decided by the state legislatures (270). They realized that the instead of letting the people elect the members, the state legislatures would elect the members by themselves. The electors from the states would than elect the country’s president from the leading citizens.
