1) With so much tension with the Presidency today, it’s fascinating to see what exactly is the role of this executive branch and… what the president can and can not actually do. Discuss the formation of the presidency and also include the powers relegated to this branch.
Chapter 13 – The Federal Courts
2) What is the power of judicial review ? And also, from section 13.4, discuss the structure of the Supreme Court.
Chapter 14 – State & Local Government
3) There’s so much to cover here, but give a summary as to the main roles the state government has and also, what powers are given to local governments. Give examples for each.
Chapter 16 & 17 Domestic & Foreign Policy
4) In the Domestic Policy chapter, very broad themes that help us understand the history of the US economic perspective are laissee-faire, Keynesian economics, mandatory spending vs. discretionary spending. Define each of these terms but also discuss and paint a picture of what these terms actually meant for our country.
5) In the Foreign Policy chapter, pick any examples that are interesting to you pertaining to different foreign affairs the US became involved with; or if you prefer a more technical approach, different structures within foreign policy.
“How can a constitutional order protect its amendment rule against an ordinary amendment? How can we ensure, for example, that political actors are unable to use the ordinary amendment process in order to legally bypass an eternity clause” (Colon-Rios 2015). Joel focus on a really big point, how are going to protect the constitution from amendments like this being bypassed. Colon-Rios goes further onto say that amendments should go under a period of self-entrenchment provision. Where they could be finalized and made sure they are for pure reasons only to benefit our country. Amendments that should be addressed by the United States Government and have an amendment created is immigration and marriage with a focus in same sex marriage. Immigration would be an amendment that should be added in great detail, so that there would be no confusion on the topic. As presidents go through their terms, there has been major changes on how immigration has been handled. This year many families have been torn apart and separated because of this shakiness with this issue in our government. Marriage within the same sex has been a huge controversial topic within in these last few years. Many states have legalized same sex marriage as others are completely against it. In the constitution it states on how we have freedom of speech, therefore we have the right to love who we want. If marriage is merely just a piece of paper and being recognized by our government. Isn’t freedom of speech the same idea as giving someone the right to marry and love who they want. The Constitution is a vital document to our country the United States of America, therefore it shall not perish. Although it should be objected to change, so it will be relevant in today’s world and for tomorrow’s world. As we add the changes to such a powerful document we should be careful and take our time to analyze these changes.>GET ANSWER
