Our objectives today
  • Our Performance Indicators Today
  • TSW understand why the major parties have a
    decentralized structure. TSW describe the
    national party machinery and how parties are
    organized at the State and local level. TSW
    identify the three components of the parties. TSW
    examine the future of the major parties.
  • Our Objectives
  • TSW understand that both major parties are highly
    decentralized, fragmented organizations. In
    neither of them is there a chain of command
    running from the national to the State to the
    local level. The President's party usually is
    somewhat more cohesively organized than the party
    out of power.

Some Famous Quotes
"There are two subjects, indeed, which I shall
claim a right to further as long as I breathe
the public education, and the sub-division of
counties into wards. I consider the continuance
of republican government as absolutely hanging
on these two hooks." Thomas Jefferson to Joseph
C. Cabell, 1814. ME 1484 What is a Ward? The
tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so
dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy
of a citizen in a democracy. Charles de
Montesquieu The death of democracy is not
likely to be an assassination from ambush. It
will be a slow extinction from apathy,
indifference, and undernourishment. Robert M.
Hutchins Is it ignorance or apathy? Hey, I
don't know and I don't care. Jimmy Buffett
What is Apathy? How would that impact our
government?

The Party in the Presidency is Viewed as the one
in Power
  • Both major parties main goal is to get their
    presidential candidate elected. They will
    utilize local party offices and each State's main
    office.
  • Our State's Democratic Party http//www.tndp.org
  • And Republican Party
  • http//tngop.org

Federalism continues to Influence Politics
  • The 10th Amendment of the Bill of Rights gave
    States the power to control elections. Each
    state has a state election commission
    http//www.tn.gov/sos/election
  • And each county in a state has their election
    commission
  • http//www.rutherfordcountytn.gov/election/
  • So federalism caused government to have shared
    powers. Political parties have mirrored that
    structure.

9
Local Party Organization
  • Turn to page 140 in our textbook. Look at the
    diagram on Local Party Organization. A State
    organization has congressional districts. A
    district is divided into wards. Wards are then
    divided into precints.

10
An example of Precincts in a primary.
  • Lets see how I did in the 2000 GOP State Senate
    primary, by voting location or precinct.
  • What is a precinct?

11
Parties Nominate their Candidates
  • The 2012 Presidential Primaries
  • http//www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2012/primaries.html

12
Each party holds a National Convention
  • Here are two videos to show you what each
    convention looked like in 2012.
  • What do you think is the main purpose of a
    convention?

13
A Party has Three Components
  • The components are
  • 1) The Party Organization. The party's leaders,
    activists, workers and contributors.
  • 2) The Party Electorate. The party's supporters
    who vote for the party. These voters are referred
    to as straight-ticket voters.
  • 3) The Party in Government. The party members
    who are in office. These can be elected or
    appointed positions.

14
What is our Parties' Future?
  • Fewer and fewer voters are identifying themselves
    as Democratic or Republican. Why do YOU think
    this is the case?
  • More and more voters are calling themselves
    Independent. What do YOU think they mean by
    that? Why you do think they are calling
    themselves that instead of identify with one
    party or the other?
  • More and more voters are split-ticket voting.
    What do you think that term means? Why do you
    think more and more voters are voting that way?

15
Could the Independent Party become a real Third
Party?
  • Turn to page 142. Check out the graph at the top
    of the page. Look at Interpreting Graphs.
    Read the caption.
  • What is the answer to question (a)? Why do you
    think that happened?
  • What is the answer to question (b)? Do you think
    that was true in 2012? Why do you think that?

16
Party Organization
  • Our Standards Today
  • Standard 1.0 Culture
  • 1.2 understand the impact of the political system
    on
  • American culture.

  • 4.1 understand the role of politics and
    government in society.
  • Standard 6.0 Individuals Groups Interactions
  • 6.5 understand the impact and influence of
    participatory

  • Our Performance Indicators Today
  • TSW understand why the major parties have a

18
Exit Questions
  • 1) Why do the major parties have a decentralized
    structure? What do we mean by decentralized.
    What are the benefits of this type of structure?
  • 2) How are the major parties organized at the
    State and local level?
  • 3) What are the three components of the parties.
    What purpose does each component serve? How
  • do they help accomplish the goal of winning
    the next election?
  • 4) What do you think the future of the major
    parties is? Do you see a third party ever become
    successful? Why or why not?
