    Legislative Branch Ryan Francom ENGL 2010 Portfolio 2: Proposal Final Draft Judiciary - Our last hope Our flags have been raised from half-staff to full-staff since the terrorist attacks in the New York area and most of us Americans seem to be increasingly aware of our protecting freedoms. In 1787, our founding fathers created the greatest contract or agreement for freedom ever known to mankind. My "Brief American Pageant" history book lists two fundamental principles that directed them to the establishment of our Constitution. These guidelines were that, "the only legitimate government was one based on the consent of the governed and that the powers of the government should be limited" (117 ...

  • Affects Of The Enlightenment - 563 words
    Affects Of The Enlightenment Many men and women had significant impacts on the historical period known as the Enlightenment. Three men that had such an impact on the Enlightenment were Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and Montesquieu. Each of these men had different theories and ideas about what type of government there should be. This resulted in many people having different opinions on how the government should rule their country. Due to this, the Enlightenment was a very chaotic and opinionated period. During the seventeenth century, England was on the verge of a civil war. It was split between an absolute monarchy and a self governed society. One man who believed in absolute monarchy was Thoma ...

  • America The Unusuak And Wrong - 1,899 words
    America The Unusuak And Wrong Different people from all different walks of life founded America. Many of these people came to America as now know it, for many reason.

  • Areican And French Revolution Revised - 1,374 words
    ... largest country in Europe, France might never have recovered. Now contrast all of this with the American Revolution, more correctly called the War for Independence. The American Revolution was different because, as Irving Kristol has pointed out, it was a mild and relatively bloodless revolution. A war was fought to be sure, and soldiers died in that war. But . . . there was none of the butchery which we have come to accept as a natural concomitant of revolutionary warfare. . . . There was no 'revolutionary justice'; there was no reign of terror; there were no bloodthirsty proclamations by the Continental Congress." The American Revolution was essentially a conservative movement, fought ...

  • Article Of Confederation - 965 words
    Article Of Confederation Articles of Confederation The ineffectiveness of the Articles of Confederation was pulling the country apart by the end of the 1780s. It needed improvement in each genre of its structure. In foreign policy, politically, and economically, the country was in a state of collapse. Politically, the writers of the Articles of Confederation forgot two of the three-branch government, the executive and judicial branches. In foreign policy, the country was not respect by any of its peers and could not create an effective treaty. Finally, economic stability was non-existent. The country could not collect taxes, pay debts, or trade effectively. Amidst the chaos, there were few s ...

    Constitution: A Bundle Of Political Compromises Late in May 1787, George Washington welcomed delegates from twelve of the thirteen states to the Constitutional Convention.

  • Courts As Legislators - 1,126 words
    Courts As Legislators Courts As Legislators The purpose of this paper is to show that although not originally intended to, some our modern day courts in the United States have in essence become legislators.

  • Democracy Vs Dictatorship - 1,163 words
    ... still lives will be emotionally scarred forever. The "great purge" from 1936 - 1939, began with few show trials that symbolized fair justice but never provided enough real evidence to base a conviction on. These trials were for members of the government who had supposedly plotted against Joseph Stalin. Following these trials, the secret police purged all institutions (education, media, government) of possible threats to the communist party, and sent millions of people to forced labour camps. When this horror came to an end in 1939 it was too late for the millions of people who died, completely innocent of any crime. It is true that Stalin's reign enabled many people to learn to read and ...

The Articles gave us a sort of good base to start from, and was ground breaking in the shaping of our new nation.

The central government had no power to tax they only had the power to ask the states for money. They also had no money to pay for an army to settle domestic disputes or fight off invaders.
