Checks and Balances For more course tutorials

Times, Rating B Separation of Powers/Checks
and Balances. For much of 2011 and 2012, public
dissatisfaction with Congress rose to all time
highs, with 70-80 expressing disapproval with
how Congress does its job. Many commentators note
that Americans are fed up with Washington
"grid-lock" that makes government apparently
unable to address important problems. Other
observers believe that the national government is
acting according to its design, based on
separation of powers and checks and balances.

Constitution For more course tutorials
visit www.tutorialrank.com Tutorial Purchased 1
Times, Rating B Amending the U.S.
Constitution. The formal process of amending the
Constitution is cumbersome and slow. While this
fact explains why relatively few amendments have
been adopted, it does not discourage advocates of
constitutional change from proposing them. Four
amendment proposals that have gained considerable
attention are the Balanced Budget Amendment, the
Birthright Citizenship Amendment, the Equal
Rights Amendment, and the Overturn Citizens
United Amendment. Select one of these proposals
as the topic of your initial post and use the
assigned resources to inform yourself about its
purpose and the arguments of its supporters and
critics.

Federal System For more course tutorials

Times, Rating A Policy-making in the Federal
System. The U.S. government's expansive role in
public policy is caught in a swirl of conflicting
cross-currents. On the one hand, popular
expectations about government's responsibility to
solve problems often exceed the capacity of state
and local authorities to respond effectively. On
the other hand, policies developed at the
national level may not sufficiently reflect the
great diversity of interests across the U.S. to
be effective at the local level. Moreover, the
search for effective policy is further
complicated by theoretical debates about the
constitutional framework of federalism, e.g.,
what limits on national power can be derived from
the Tenth Amendment?

Your Rep. The Constitution states, "The House of
Representatives shall be composed of Members
chosen every second Year by the People of the
several States..." (Art. I, Sec. 2). Contrast
this with the original constitutional language
for the other house of Congress, "The Senate of
the United States shall be composed of two
Senators from each State, chosen by the
Legislature thereof for six Years..." (Art. I,
Sec. 3). The phrase "chosen by the Legislature"
was changed to "elected by the people" by the
17th Amendment, but not until 1912.

rating Presidential Leadership and the Electoral
College. Americans expect their presidents to get
things done, to solve problems, to govern
effectively, and to be strong leaders. The
framers of the Constitution did not envision such
presidential leadership. A scholar of the
presidency points out that Article II of the
Constitution gives the president scant formal
power to influence congressional policy-making
(Simon, n.d.).

Purchased 4 Times, Rating A Defense Spending
and the Military-Industrial Complex.
Levin-Waldman (2012, pp. 186-89) analyzes how
"iron triangles" link Congress, the bureaucracy,
and interest groups in self-serving relationships
that influence policy in ways that are contrary
to the public interest. In 1961, at the end of
President Eisenhower's second term, he gave a
farewell address to the nation in which he warned
of the dangers of a "military-industrial
complex." Many commentators today see the
military-industrial complex as an example of an
iron triangle that bloats the defense budget and
distorts national priorities.

developed a plan for holding and interrogating
prisoners captured during the conflict. They were
sent to a prison inside a U.S. naval base at
Guantanamo Bay on land leased from the government
of Cuba. Since 2002, over 700 men have been

Times, Rating B Party Platforms and Winning
Elections. Political parties mobilize voters to
win elections and implement policy goals. Parties
use their stated policy goals (i.e., their
platforms) as a way to mobilize voter support.
Generally, in order to be successful in a
two-party system, parties must have policy goals
across a broad range of issue areas to appeal to
a broad range of voters.

The U.S. has one of the lowest voter turnout
rates among modern democratic political systems.
One study ranks the U.S. 120th on a list of 169
nations compared on voter turnout (Pinter,
Gretchen, Sullivan, 2002). While during the
last decade many initiatives have been undertaken
to increase voter participation, concerns about
the possibility of election fraud have also
increased. Additionally, some political interests
feel threatened by the increase in turnout among
some traditionally low-turnout ethnic minorities
