- Indian Removal
On May 26, 1830, the Indian Removal Act of 1830 was passed by the Twenty-First Congress of the United states of
America. After four months of strong debate, Andrew Jackson signed the bill into law. Land greed was a big reason for
the federal government's position on Indian removal. This desire for Indian lands was also abetted by the Indian hating
mentallity that was peculiar to some American frontiersman.
This period of forcible removal first started wit...
- The Canadian Senate
The Canadian Senate
By Andrew Donogh
Today the Canadian Senate does not do all that much for the Canadian
government. It no longer does the job that it was created to do. It barely
stops any bills that go through. They're paid a lot of money to just sit and do
The Canadian Government could work fine without the Senate. Just get
rid of it, and have the governor look at the bills closely before he signs them.
Just in case the governing party try's to pass a bad bill.
Or it cou...
- Locke: Is This True Justice?
Locke: Is This True Justice?
Justice is responsible for making sure the country is taken care of and that
all dangers or problems be taken care of as well. It is essential that the
citizens be treated equally, and they all get the freedom to share what they
think. Justice can never be served without equality and freedom involved, or
problems will arise.
Locke fits the idea of justice the best out of the three (Locke, Hammurabi,
Machiavelli). One of the things he said was "government ex...

Katha Pollitt's Argument About Media Being Biased Against Liberals and Allan
Levite's Argument That Media Is Biased Against Conservatives
In the nation Katha Pollitt argues in her article "Kissing & Telling"
that the media is against liberals, and or her views. Allan Levite in his
article for the National review, "Bias Basics," Levite argues that the medial is
biased against conservatives. Both authors present arguments with deficiencies.
They both have motives to be bia...
The word "privateer" conjures a romantic image in the minds of most
Americans. Tales of battle and bounty pervade the folklore of privateering,
which has become a cherished, if often overlooked part of our shared heritage.
Legends were forged during the battle for American independence, and these men
were understandably glorified as part of the formation of our national identity.
The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of these men were common
opportunists, if notewo...
- Important Elements Of A Campaign Strategy
Important Elements of a Campaign Strategy
Campaigning for any type of elected office requires a sharp eye for
detail in regard to what voters are looking for in a candidate. A campaign
strategy should be comprehensive in its efforts to reach as many voters as
possible. Yet, without a solid base of ideas from which to expand upon, the
message being conveyed can easily be lost or taken out of context. In order for
a campaign manager to avoid this blunder from occurring and maximize the
- Is The Death Penalty Just?
Is The Death Penalty Just?
Is the death penalty just? Politicians, lobbyists, philosophers, and
experts from all walks of life continuously debate this controversial subject.
Has any one of these individuals listened to the rest of us? The answer in many
cases is no.
The United States is a democracy of embodied officials, who represent
the people, their wishes, beliefs and ideals. That means, through elections, we
decide what policies are to be enacted. In the case of capital punis...

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
Where do you go if someone is threatening your personal rights? Do you
go to the police, or maybe to the government? What if the police and government
are the parties threatening your rights? All you have to do is just call the
ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union). Sounds like a commercial doesn't it. The
ACLU blankets the United States with its legal protection. It is involved in so
many aspects of the fight for civil liberties that it is diffi...

Paula Jones' Lawsuit Against Bill Clinton
A lawsuit has been filed by Paula Jones, a clerk for the Arkansas Industrial
Development Commission, for sexual harassment by then Governor Clinton. In her
lawsuit, Paula Jones states that Clinton told an Arkansas State trooper to
escort her to a private hotel room where she claims that she was sexually
harassed. There are two sides to this case: Clinton states that he did not do
it and that he has never seen this person before. Clinton's lawyers ...
- The French Revolution
The French Revolution
The years before the French Revolution (which started in 1789 AD.) were
ones of vast, unexpected change and confusion. One of the changes was the
decline of the power of the nobles, which had a severe impact on the loyalty of
some of the nobles to King Louis XVI. Another change was the increasing power
of the newly established middle class, which would result in the monarchy
becoming obsolete. The angry and easily manipulated peasants, who were used by
- Juidical Review
In 1717, Bishop Hoadly told King George I, "Whoever hath an absolute authority to interpret written or spoken laws; it is he who is truly the lawgiver to all intents and purposes and not the person who wrote or spoke them (Pollack, 153)." Early sentiments similar these have blossomed in to a large scale debate over which branch of our government has the power to overturn laws that do not follow the foundations of our democratic system; the constitution. In this paper I will...
- Capital Punishment: Costs Of The Death Penalty
Capital Punishment: Costs of The Death Penalty
Let us suppose that killing as a form of punishment is a moral and
universally accepted practice. Would it then be acceptable to issue this
irreparable sanction to a select few while allowing others, equally accountable,
to avoid it? It is acceptable to our criminal justice system for it seems to be
standard operating procedure. Many embrace the death penalty based on the "eye
for an eye" concept. There is certainly some merit to this arg...

Affirmative Action: Public OPinion vs. Policy
When Justin Ketcham, a white college student from the suburbs, thinks about
affirmative action, he thinks about what happened when he sent out letters
seeking scholarships so he could attend Stanford University after being accepted
during his senior year of high school.The organizations that wrote back told him
their money was reserved for women or minorities. To Americans like Ketcham,
it's a matter of fairness. The average white male will claim...

The Reagan Tax Cuts and Foreign Policy
During the 1980's President Ronald Reagan's (our 40th president from
1981 to 1989) domestic policy of a substantial tax cut led to greatly increased
economic prosperity for our country. During Reagan's administration marked
changes were made to the tax code and economic statistics showed a major change
for the better. However, at the same time, the Democrats controlled the Congress
and continued increased spending against Reagan's wishes. The Joint Econ...
