  • President Franklin Roosevelt - 1,553 words
    President Franklin Roosevelt The world has known many great leaders, especially in the post-Civil War era. Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Harry Truman all rank with the most prominent leaders of all time. However, in my opinion President Franklin Roosevelt made the most difference out of anybody in this century. He began a new era in American history by ending the Great Depression that the country had succumbed to in 1929. Without him ending the Depression, who knows where this country could have gone? His social reforms gave most people a new perspective on government. Government was not only expected to protect the people from foreign invaders and affairs, but to protect a ...

    ... a Democratic party majority in both houses helped speed things along. What emerged from these 100 days was a 3-fold focus, RELIEF-RECOVERY-REFORM. One of the relief actions was known as the Emergency Relief Act. This established the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) and he pushed an appropriation of $500 million to be spent immediately for quick relief. The Reforestation Act of 1933 killed two birds with one stone. First, it helped stop and repair some of the environmental damage that had occurred as a result of the industrial revolution. More importantly, however, it created the Civilian Conservation Corps, which eventually employed more than 2 1/2 million men at various c ...

  • Abstract Expressionism - 1,560 words
    Abstract Expressionism "What about the reality of the everyday world and the reality of painting? They are not the same realities. What is this creative thing that you have struggled to get and where did it come from? What reference or value does it have, outside of the painting itself?" Ad Reinhardt, in a group discussion at Studio 35, in 1950. My essay starts with the origin and the birth of this great expression in the twentieth century. This movement not only touched painting, it had an affect on various aspects of art- poetry, architecture, theater, film, photography. Vasily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich and Piet Mondrian are considered to be the pioneer artists to have achieved a truly a ...

  • American Dream - 1,162 words
    American Dream The American Dream What is the American Dream? Is it fame? Is it fortune? President Franklin Roosevelt explained the American Dream as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. (AAC) I think that the American Dream is different for everyone. It is simply the urge for a better life. The American Dream is still valid but is totally different from what it used to be. For the early immigrants the American Dream was a better life not with material goods, but by freedom. Freedom to worship whoever they want. Freedom to say whatever they want without fear of being arrested or shot. (AAC) This Dream stayed with America untill the 1900's. That's ...

    Deciphering The Presidentials Tapes: Watergate Deciphering The Presidential Tapes Ever since I can remember I have always heard, whether over the news or on an educational channel, about the Watergate scandal. I never knew what the Watergate scandal was about, but I did know that it had to do with one our former Presidents. Before I read Breaking into Watergate I had no clue about all the lies and betrayals that went on in the highest and most prestigious office in America. It is very important as a history major to have read this article so that I am no longer oblivious to what went on in the Oval Office prior to June 7, 1972. As I started to read through this article the realization of wha ...

  • During The 1930s American Citizens Witnessed A Breakdown Of The Democratic And Free Enterprise Way Of Life The Government Saw - 985 words
    During the 1930's American citizens witnessed a breakdown of the Democratic and free enterprise way of life. The government saw that the free enterprise system was failing. The New Deal increased the government's regulation and intervention and the economic system, thus temporarily abandoning the capitalism system and turning toward socialism to find the answer. The answer...the New Deal. Socialism is usually thought of as a form of government that advocates public ownership and public control of wealth. In other words, a socialistic government wants the wealth of the nation spread out in such a way that the money is equally distributed among the country's citizens. Socialism is in favor of ...

  • Fear Of Frying And Other Fax Of Life By Josh Freed - 859 words
    Fear Of Frying And Other Fax Of Life By Josh Freed rom Fear of Frying and other Fax of Life By Josh Freed I was sitting at a busy New York caf a few months ago when a young woman approached my table. Excuse me, she said. I hate to be so bold, but could I possibly ask you what you're eating, if you don't mind me asking. In a flash, I knew-she was Canadian!-and I said so. Gee! she said. How did you guess? Because no one but a Canadian could have asked such a convoluted question. A Parisienne would simply have eyed my meal in admiration-or disdain. An American would have said: Any good?, and scooped a bit off my plate. But only a Canadian could create such a timid, tortuous sentence, so dense y ...

  • Federal Reserve Monetary Policy - 3,287 words
    Federal Reserve Monetary Policy If taxation without representation could rally the colonists against the British Crown in 1776, tight money and ruinous interest rates might be cause for populist revolt in our own day. Federal Reserve monetary policy also has severe social burdens, measured by huge changes in aggregate output, income, and employment. The imperious Fed, much like the English Crown two centuries ago, formulates and carries out its policy directives without democratic input, accountability, or redress. Not only has the Fed's monetary restraint at times deliberately pushed the economy into deep recession, with the attendant loss of millions of jobs, but also its impact on the str ...

  • Federalism Poverty - 1,974 words
    Federalism & Poverty Many Americans believe that the federal government is too big, both in the number of agencies it directs and in the scope of its powers. Some people also think that the daily business of Capitol Hill has no effect on their lives, in part because they believe that politicians do not understand their problems. This dissatisfaction with Washington, D.C., in recent years has renewed debate over the division of power between federal and state and local governments. Federalism - the sharing of power between the states and the national government - has been a major issue throughout U.S. history. Thomas R. Dye defines federalism as "a division of power between two separate autho ...

  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt - 1,435 words
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt is generally regarded as one of the United States' most effective Presidents. Whether the accolades are entirely justified or Roosevelt's effectiveness was simply a product of the time period in which he served as President will always be debated. However, one thing that no one can deny is that Roosevelt took an atypical route on his way to becoming President. Whether he was fighting an illness or coping with the death of a loved one, Roosevelt always managed to keep himself on track and to persist towards his goals and those of the country. People remember FDR for his actions during the Great Depression and World War II, but those actions ...

Then Roosevelt agreed to run for governor of New York, against the advice of Eleanor and Louis Howe. Roosevelt won by a narrow margin, and Smith lost to Herbert Hoover. Roosevelt now had succeeded Smith as governor of New York. Roosevelt declared that he was going to mold his own administration by replacing Smith's key associates with his own. Smith had been involved in a series of important reforms, and Roosevelt had the problem of developing his own programs, and making a name for himself.
