So a chosen few were helped make this conceivable, the Founding Fathers. The principal Founding Father and furthermore known as our first President would be George Washington. Other than him being most fit for the main leader of the United States, there are such a significant number of more explanations behind his commitment to the Constitution. He had understanding from the Revolutionary War, and from that it persuaded Washington that over the top worries for states' rights and states purview would be deadly to a successful national government. He was at that point understanding that states' rights were essential which winds up noticeably crucial when choosing our new government for the United States.
1. Critically analyze the main functions and powers of Congress. Introduction: Congress, which is made up of the House of Representatives and Senate is seen as the most independently powerful legislature in the world as it is fiercely protective of its constitutional position. Its main aim is to exert independence from executive influence, which in many occasions it has, especially its stance with the Health Care Bill. This independence derives from the constitution as the founding fathers suggested Congress was to be “the central element of the new political system” allowing Congress to perform checks and balances on a powerful executive.
Even though the changes proposed in the Constitution were essential to the survival of the nation, the Articles of Confederation also had some positive and effective measures. Some of the strengths of the Articles included the Land Ordinance of 1785 and the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 while some of the weaknesses of the Articles amended in the Constitution are the power of taxation, and establishment of the executive branch of government. One of the changes in the Constitution that addressed and mended the weakness of the articles was the power of taxation. Originally the Articles of Confederation stated that only states alone could levy taxes (Doc C). This weakness was later addressed and amended in the constitution, when it granted the federal government all powers of taxation (Doc C).
In 1979 Labour Party under the Leadership of Wilson gained 301 seats and ended up forming a coalition with the Liberals in 1976. Evidence from past elections illustrates that FPTP delivers a strong and stable Government by ensuring a party gets the majority of seats in the House of Commons. To further emphasize my argument; FPTP ensures a strong Government by ensuring a government is capable of running a full-term of 5 Years, making them able to implement their economic and social plans. For example; Thatcher was able to implement her new radical policies of Monetarism due to having strong majority in the commons and as a result the opposition were not able to vote a ‘no confidence’. For example, Thatcher during her time in office between 1979 to 1983, she and her government were able to implement their policies; i.e.
The United Kingdom’s s uncodified constitution relies heavily on established conventions and trust in order to prevent widespread corruption. To some extent this type of constitution historically has served the UK well. However, due to increasing disillusion with politicians and their ethics. Which some claim to be the result of more transparency and a higher level of education. UK citizen are more informed and able to make analytical judgements in their best interest, this in turn, challenges the authority of the state to decide what is in our best interest.

Outline Although the founding of the Constitution was a revolutionary, positive turning-point in American history, the US Constitution has a few unconstitutional and democratic shortcomings. Introduction In order to understand the shortcomings of democracy of the US Constitution, is it is important to know the background of its’ founding and how each article serves our country. Federalist No. 10, written by James Madison, asserts the importance of having the image of a democracy without its real substance. There seems to have been a very strong opposition towards democracy at the Constitutional Convention, although the framers were in the midst of creating democratic principles to appeal to the majority of the country.
It is through the inspection of the balancing forces between government and citizenship that I have come to appreciate both the brilliance and the gravity of the Constitution. As outlined in our Constitution, our government is divided into three equal branches. To ensure the status of this equality, our Constitution also provides a system of checks and balances which will serve to guarantee that no part of the government will ever be allowed too much power. It also ensures the power of the citizens by means of regular elections. As it is impractical for all citizens to directly participate in running the government, the election process asserts the voting power of the people every time.

Is the Constitution still Relevant? An ongoing argument over modern political and social issues centers on whether the U.S. Constitution is relevant in today’s world. With all the advancements in technology, communication, transportation, commerce, and in the medical field, some argue that the Founding Fathers could not have seen what would be necessary for the United States to stay the great nation that it already is, so I believe that the constitution is still relevant to a degree. For most, when forming the Constitution, the framers did not construct the constitution’s durability based on any advancement in technologies or society. They wrote the restrictive forces of the Constitution on something far more predictable, the meaning of freedom.
