A Revisionist Perspective Of The Election Of Thomas Jefferson - 1,336 words
Consensus historians paint Thomas Jefferson as the great father of democracy, referring to his election to the presidency as the revolution of 1800. In actuality, Thomas Jefferson was an inconsistent man, who was philosophically against the Federalists, but who did not bring about any significant political or ideological changes during his presidency. Recently, revisionist historians have begun to question the notion of Jefferson as the representative of the common man. Many of these historians now agree that Jeffersons life was wrought with contradictions, and that his policies, as a president, actually reflected a synthesis of the Federalist and Republican ideologies. We are all republican ...

... an across-the-board tax break, meaning everyone will benefit. The rich, the middle class, and the poor will get a tax break. Bush's proposal would be a trillion-dollar tax break that will start in 2001 and last until 2010. Gore believes that Bush's tax break will only benefit the rich. It is true, the rich will benefit from the tax break because the rich pay one third of the taxes in the U.S. It is believed that Republicans have always favored the rich, and in the case of Bush's tax break, it just happens that the rich get the upper hand. Bush's bottom line is that he wants tax breaks. He does not want the government to use the surplus for debts and other government programs. Gore's idea ...

Between 1865 and 1900 American cities changed drastically. The development was at its fastest moving point. For example, in 1860 only fifty-eight cities in the country had a population between ten and 50 thousand people. This number by 1900 was up to 369. With this rapid population growth came a need for development in these cities. Electronic trolleys were invented to eliminate the tons of waste from horsecars that had for decades fouled city streets. This also caused congestion however, and to relieve this congestion large cities such as New York elevated portions of transit systems and in turn put communities under noisy and rickety platforms. City sanitation also changed during this fort ...

Hamlet Election - 856 words
In the world today elections are a major issue. Every two years we elect important officials, and every four years, we elect the leader of our country. These elections are all decided by the people of the country, and we go through processes to gradually eliminate each candidate until we get down to several major candidates. The process would actually be considered manneristic, since it becomes very elaborate and involved. We choose our new leader from these few, completing a very long and important process. Shakespeares Hamlet occurs in a similar fashion, although they are vying for a different position, to be King of Denmark. Many people are in pursuit, crossing family lines and creating m ...

Inadequicies With Campaign Finance In The 2000 Election - 1,497 words
The 2000 elections will be remembered for more than the cliffhanger presidential race. This year's campaign also essentially buried federal limits on the role of money in American national elections. Record-shattering sums--and new ways to get them into campaigns in large, unregulated amounts--have shredded restrictions imposed after the Watergate scandal. On Thursday, the Democratic and Republican parties reported their first postelection finance totals, beginning to provide a comprehensive view of the 2000 campaign. Altogether, political donors, who four years ago anted up a record $2 billion for candidates for federal office, raised the stakes this year by an estimated $500 million. Elect ...

First, I would reduce by approximately 10 billion dollars in each of the next three years the rapidly escalating, lavish Nixon military budget. Current spending wastes billions of dollars on planes that do not fly, and missiles that will not work. I will never permit America to become a second-rate power in the world.

Madison's demand was interpreted as a prelude to war. The embargo was passed promptly by Congress, and it expired on June 1. On that date, no satisfactory solution having been offered, Madison addressed his war message to Congress. He told Congress that "our commerce has been plundered in every sea," that Britain was intent on destroying American commerce "not as supplying the wants of her enemies, which she herself supplies; but as interfering with the monopoly which she covets for her own commerce and navigation." Madison also made an allusion to British participation in recent Native American uprisings and to other "injuries and indignities ... heaped on our country." He also condemned th ...
