  •  
  • 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

    Constitution

  •  
  • 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

  •  
  • 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

  • Meet 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).

  • Short Essay 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.

    Leadership and the Electoral College

  •  
  • 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.). H

  •  
  • 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

  •  
  • The Supreme Court and Judicial Review. In a
    recent lecture at Yale University, Supreme Court
    Justice Stephen Breyer cautioned that while most
    citizens assume that judicial review is an
    enduring part of American government, judges
    should not take it for granted. He advises that
    if judges wish to preserve this undemocratic
    power they should follow a judicial philosophy
    that will "build confidence in the courts"
    (Breyer, 2011). Justice Breyer goes on to

  •  
  • Habeas Corpus and the War on Terror. Soon after
    the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, the
    Bush administration 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

  •  
  • 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.

  • Voting and Turnout. 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 (Pintor, Gratschew, 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
