- Term Limits For Legislators
Term Limits For Legislators
When the Constitution of the United States was adopted in 1789, it was
without direction regarding term limits for legislators. At the time,
professional politicians were unheard of, and the idea of someone serving for
more than one or two terms was unlikely. So the Constitution did not formally
address the issue of term limits, although it was understood that officeholders
would limit themselves to one or two terms and then return to private life (1).

The United States As A World Power: How Much Longer Will The US Be The Policeman
of the World ?
The United States has been a super power for decades, and since America
has always involved themselves in other countries' problems. Instead of
isolationism, the country has practiced getting involved. Since the Monroe
Presidency, America has been named the World's police force. Dispelling
anarchists, and stopping coos, the united states portrays itself as the world
protector. Since Mon...

Do you feel that all humans have the right to enjoy natural beauty? The right to decent, uncrowded shelter? The right to eat healthy food and drink pure water? To breathe clean air and avoid pesticide poisoning? Most people would say every human has a right to all of these things, but in some areas of the world these rights are not being met.
Most species have a sideways "S" shaped graph reflecting growth rate, meaning the species will go up in total ...
- The Balance Of Power Theory
The Balance of Power Theory
The most critical and obvious feature of international affairs is its
state of anarchy. The international stage features many indepent actors each
seeking their own best interest and security . With no sovereign body to govern
over these actors it would seem that the system would never be capable of
attaining any control. However this is not the reality of the system, we have
seen in history that it is possible to restrain the players. It is said to be
- Role Of Mass Media In Politics
Role Of Mass Media In Politics
In this discussion I call upon two movies as examples and evidence to
examine the role of mass media in politics. The two movies I will use for this
basis are The Candidate and All the Presidents Men.
Today, the art of governing a society seems to be much dictated or
prescribed by what the assemblage of the citizens of the United States say or
express to the mass media.
Thus, the government and politicians listening to and acting upon our...

What Leads to Intervention?: A Case Study of Intervention During the Bush
As Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful armed force in a world
plagued by small military crises, the question ultimately becomes: when does a
crisis call for intervention? From 1988 to 1992, this was President George
Bush's dilemma. The days of the United States fearing embroilment in
international affairs due to the towering menace of the USSR and global
destruction ended at about the same time as Bu...
Welfare. Whether you collect it, or you pay for it (and for EVERY
working American does one of the two), most citizens of our country are familiar
with it. Yet as every second of the day passes, more and more of my money and
yours is being allotted to this growing epidemic called welfare. The Personal
Responsibility Act, signed by the President, was a monumental change in welfare
as we know, or used to know it. The welfare system is still in need or more
strict and stringent polic...

Machiavellian Politics in The Prince
The Prince, written by Niccolo Machiavelli, is one of the
first examinations of politics and science from a purely scientific
and rational perspective. Machiavelli theorizes that the state is only
created if the people cooperate and work to maintain it. The state is
also one of manís greatest endeavors, and the state takes precedence
over everything else. The state should be oneís primary focus, and
maintaining the sovereignty of the state ...
- GUN CONTROL OR NOT?
GUN CONTROL OR NOT?
Imagine today, somebody or government came into your town and started taking possession of all your personal fire
arms. Just so they could keep you under their control. What would you think or do about this? In the summer of
1768, the British army tried to disarm the new residents of Boston. This process went on until the end of 1775. This
took place so that the King of England would not have his invincible army revolted against in the new land to the
West. The bos...
- Womens Rights
We live in an age where women have gained access, and freedoms to explore a wide range of interests, and life styles more then they ever could in the past. Freedoms to enter the man's work force. Freedom to hold banking accounts, and get mortgages, and loans. In some states, they even have the freedom to marry the same sex. In this age of increasing change, there is one area that I feel women should be protected from, and that is hand to hand combat. I was raised in a ho...

Affirmative Action: Solution or Confusion?
Affirmative action is a plan designed to end discrimination by guaranteeing
minorities will be hired, regardless of race or gender. While our country hires
such groups based upon these guarantees, the qualifications of such people are
occasionally overlooked. Many believe that affirmative action is a very
effective plan; however, the population which opposes such action frequently
includes people of various minorities, as well as many others who hav...

Has Political Islam Failed in Algeria?
The question whether Political Islam has failed or not due to the
internal structure of the Islamic political movement, in either Algeria or any
other country in the Islamic World, is an important question for the analysis of
the politicized Islamic phenomena. Olivier Roy sees the movement as a failure,
not only in Algeria but also in the whole area from Casablanca to Tashkent, the
