When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." Which words in the passage support King’s purpose of making listeners believe that they deserve equality? Check all that apply. “architects” “magnificent” “heir” “promise” “guaranteed” “concerned”

According to the Declaration of Independence, what does the king of England want to establish in America? A. A republic B. A new parliament C. Absolute tyranny D. A democracy


The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

Mao zedong’s proclamation creating the communist people’s republic of china was announced in: 1911 1983 1949 1976


Poland Hungary Bulgaria

In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.

Poland

In January 1947, elections were held, resulting in the communist Republic of Poland. Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.

Hungary

In Hungary, the Soviets imposed harsh conditions that seized key raw materials and interfered in the internal affairs and social, policymaking. The Red army set some vigilance with police to persecute political opponents and enemies of the state.

Bulgaria

In September 1944, The Soviets declared war on Bulgary, under the argument that this country allowed its territory where the Wehrmacht (Germany) crossed and continued to press the frontlines eastwards. The Red Army motivated a coup d Etat where communists also set favorable conditions for the creation of a communist regime.

-This countries became to form the Eastern bloc, a period that lasted several decades until the 1989 Revolutions set an important amount of political and social changes in Europe in East and Central Europe, causing most of the socialist states, formerly puppet states to Soviet Russia to collapse and engage in democratic process and incorporate a different economic model.

1. A. It showed that a monarch’s powers were limited, that even he or she had to respect citizen rights and laws.

Before Magna Carta was created, the Kings of England can do any violation that they want since they cannot be punished by laws.

After the Magna Carta was created, the Kings and other nobles that rule the country are subjected to the same laws as the citizens. This make the monarch power become extremely limited and they cannot violate human’s right like they used to do.

2. B. Magna Carta

At that time, the new colonists see magna charta as a great guideline that can be used as the foundation of law in their new destination. It provide a strong law structure to protect human rights of the citizens while providing enough power for the government to make laws and protect the citizens at the same time.

3 D. Paine’s Common Sense

Paine’s common sense highlight the injustices that the government of Britain has done to the colonists (such as unfair tax laws). The pamphlets help convince the colonists that they would be economically better off if they were separated form Britain. This increase the number of volunteers who’re willing to join the revolutionary army.

4. D. Magna Carta

Before signing the Magna Carta, there is no law in the country that can prevent the King from doing whatever he want. HE was basically untouchables from punishment if he did somethign wrong. After signing the Magna Carta, the King can no longer violate the law and would be punished in the same manner if He violate it.

5. A. could make requests of the king without fear of getting into trouble for it

Before the bill of rights, the people always scared to point out the wrong doings made by the King or make any sort of requests. This fear exist because they’re scared that they would offended the King and publicly executed as punishments. The quote from the bill of rights erased this fear and increase the citizens’ power within the government.

Charles II (May 29, 1630 – February 6, 1685) was the King of England, King of Scots, and King of Ireland from January 30, 1649 (de jure) or May 29, 1660 (de facto) until his death. His father Charles I had been executed in 1649, following the English Civil War; the monarchy was then abolished and England, and subsequently Scotland and Ireland, became a united republic under Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector (see Commonwealth of England and The Protectorate), albeit with Scotland and Ireland under military occupation and de facto martial law. In 1660, shortly after Cromwell’s death, the monarchy was restored under Charles II. He was popularly known as the “Merry Monarch” in reference to the liveliness and hedonism of his court.

The exact date that Charles became king is vague due to the uncertain political situation of the time. His father was executed on January 30, 1649, making him in theory King Charles II from that moment. He was immediately proclaimed king in Scotland on February 5 and Jersey on February 16, 1649, but was also recognized in a few British colonies (especially the Colony and Dominion of Virginia). In Scotland Charles was for some time king in title only. It took two years of negotiation with the Presbyterians before he was finally crowned King of Scots in Scone on January 1, 1651. However, his reign there was short lived as he was soon driven out by the republican armies, led by Oliver Cromwell. His coronation in England would not be until after Cromwell’s death and the monarchy’s restoration in May 1660; Charles spent most of the intervening time exiled in France.

Difference Between Republic and Democratic Party | Structural


It is wrong to suggest that all Democrats share the same convictions or that within the Republican Party there are no factions. In general, Democrats are more liberal in that they favor progressive change in society, freedoms from government intervention into one’s private and social life, and regulations on economic activity and businesses. Republicans are generally more conservative in favor of traditional organizations and the status quo, limitations on personal and social activities, and liberties from public control over business and economic activity. However, not all Democrats are liberal and not all Republicans are conservative. For example, individuals in the American South–or both parties and political ideologies–tend to be more conservative, while their Northeast and West Coast neighbours are typically more liberal. Furthermore, not everyone adheres to the values of the two main parties and there are several minor or “third parties” in the United States, although their candidates are rarely elected (Remini 35-43).

Below are some issues that are frequently discussed by the news media and politicians. Every four years during a presidential election, both major parties convene at a national convention and draft a platform, which is an agenda for the next four years and spells out their positions on the issues of the day. The current party platforms reveal the parties’ positions on the following controversial issues:

  1. Democrats say that abortion is a woman’s right and should be legal, while Republicans think that abortion should be illegal and restricted by government
  2. Democrats’ opinion is that flag burning is political speech and is protected by the Constitution; Republicans oppose them and claim that the flag is protected from burning by a constitutional amendment
  3. In their speeches Democrats announce that gun control is needed, as for the Republicans they insist that gun control is unconstitutional.
  4. According to the Democrats’ platform they are in favor of strong regulations to protect the environment. Republicans look at this problem from economic point of view: “strong environmental laws harm the economy”, they say.
  5. Democrats: “strong anti-discrimination laws are needed”. Republicans: “You can trust people and companies not to discriminate”.
  6. Democrats debate that it is important to increase the minimum wage to help workers; Republicans’ response is as follows “first of all, to raise the minimum wage means to hurt businesses”.
  7. Democrats stand for the Government which should require universal access to healthcare, while Republicans state that private insurers are preferable to government mandates.
  8. According to Democrats, the Government should increase taxes on the wealthy to pay for public programs, Republicans: “cutting taxes for everyone helps the economy”.
  9. Democrats write that military spending is to be cut; veteran’s benefits are to be expanded; the US is to act in concert with other nations and/or with support from NATO and the UN. Republicans declare that military spending is to be increased; veteran’s benefits are to be cut; the US is not to be constrained by other nations or by NATO and the UN
  10. Democrats strongly oppose the death penalty: “it is not a deterrent and innocent people are in jeopardy”. Republicans are less sentimental in this issue: “the death penalty is necessary and effective” – that is their message.
  11. Democrats announce that gays’ rights and marriage are civil rights; Republicans view is traditionalistic, they say that marriage is a sacred trust between a man and woman only.
  12. Democrats oppose the practice of the prayer in school, they believe it is the violation of the separation between church and state. Republicans, again, follow the tradition arguing that the prayer in school is a religious right and our Judeo-Christian heritage (Shafer & Badger 22-70; Gould 14-97).

Thus as the above mentioned facts show, Democratic and Republican Parties are different in some very important ways. Nevertheless, the main difference is not one of politics, but of political culture. There are two fundamental differences between the parties in which all others are rooted. The first one is structural: in the Democratic Party power flows upward and in the Republican Party power flows downward. The second is attitudinal: Republicans see themselves as insiders even when they are out of authority, and even when they are in power, Democrats regard themselves as outsiders.

  1. Structural difference: Party Structure and the Flow of Power. The Democratic Party is composed of constituencies. These constituencies are those that define themselves as having a prominent trait that creates a com-mon agenda that the party must react to. Party constituencies generally meet as separate caucuses at the National Conventions (Sabato & Larson 122). The Republican Party also has appropriate elements, but they are not as essential as the constituent organizations of the Democratic Party because they are not power-exercising mechanisms and are not primary reference groups. It is described as “clearly the homogenous political party” compared to the Democrats. The basic components of the Republican Party are geographic units and ideological factions. Unlike the Democratic groups, these entities exist only as internal party mechanisms, these are primarily channels for mobilizing support and distributing information on what the Party leaders want (Gould 159-166).

The difference in the flow of power can be seen in the operation of the national conventions. The time of delegates attending the Democratic Convention is mainly occupied by caucus conferences if not in session. In addition to state caucus meetings there are caucus meetings for any group which wishes to call one, and non-members can attend them. Competing candidates for the Presidential nominations acknowledge the importance of the group by speaking to its caucus (Sabato & Larson 223-226). Republicans, apart from those of their countries, do not attend caucuses. They go to receptions. These receptions are usually closed (the entrance is by invitation only). Receptions are supported privately, each group having its own room.

Difference Between Republic and Democratic Party

The kind of interaction between delegates at caucuses is very different from that at receptions. Caucuses are intended to be areas where delegates discuss, discuss and decide before the Convention on appropriate problems. Despite the occasional speech at Republican receptions, discussion is largely private. As a result, individuals generally speak to individuals they already know and most probably agree with them. Receptions are not places to affect the group. They are places to network; to be seen and to get information (Gould 206-242).

In the flow of authority, the distinct direction also generates distinct legitimacy conceptions. In the Democratic Party, legitimacy depends on who you represent and who you are in the Republican Party. It is this difference which makes the Democratic Party so much more responsive to demands for reform within it and the Republican Party so much more responsive to changes in leadership (Remini 99-104).

  1. Attitudinal difference: World View. It has been asserted that society as a whole has a cultural and structural “core” that is more or less peripheral to most members of society.” (Shafer & Badger 188). Republicans see themselves as representing the center while Democrats view society from the periphery. The Republican center does not include the State, i.e. the national government’s significant organs. Republicans have always felt tension between the state and society and looked at the former with suspicion even when they were in authority (at least the Presidency). Since Republicans (as individuals) control most of the major private institutions, particularly economic ones, a strong central government is seen as a threat to their power. To counterbalance personal eco-nomic domination, the Democratic periphery feels a powerful government is needed. They believe that the main role of the State should be to verify personal eco-nomic authority. Nevertheless, Democrats are ambivalent toward the State. Their ambivalence derives not from a suspicion of strength, but from concern that the State will not act as they feel it should (Shafer & Badger 218, 243-248).

Although Republicans do not want to boost state authority, they still feel that it is inherently desirable what they are and their conception of the American dream. They are insiders who constitute the heart of American society and bear the basic principles of American society. They claim that, unlike the Democrats, the Republican Party and Republican policies constitute the national interest, which only serves the “unique interests” that are strong in it. (Gould 113).

The Democrats have a very different world view and a different concept of the meaning of representation. For them, representation does not mean the articulation of a single consistent program to improve the country, but the inclusion of all appropriate organizations and points of view. Their concept of representation is “delegatory,” in which accurate reflection of the parts is necessary to the welfare of the whole (Sabato & Larson 39-59).

Guided by a more unitary conception of representation as meaning the correct articulation of the national interest, Republicans feel the needs of minorities will be met best by improving the economy. They think that every aspect will profit most from what benefits the whole. While the Party sometimes offers separate programs or advantages to discrete groups, it does so reluctantly and only because it has to satisfy Democratic criticism that it ignores the requirements of such communities.

Democrats do not partly have an embedded understanding of a national interest because they do not see themselves as the core of society. As is typical of outsiders, in the belief that what is not inherently acceptable and something fresh could lead to something better, Democrats are predisposed to “change” and “experimentation” (Shafer & Badger 128).

To the extent that the Republican idea of a national interest can be summed up in one sentence, individual success would be promoted. Insiders usually see their accomplishments as being due to their own merit and effort rather than to social structure or pure luck elements. Success is its own justification. So what worked for them, or what they recognize as working for them, should work for everyone. For government to interfere, other than to remove barriers to individual action, is undesirable (Remini 190-202).

The word that would most aptly characterize what Democrats want is fairness. This is a prevalent objective of outsiders who do not recognize their destiny as a result of their own failure. They are rather skeptical that there is a linear relationship between individual effort, ability and reward and feel that a major function of government is to make life more fair (Judis & Teixeira 165).

There are some noticeable differences in the political parties. There are absolutely different notions of the structure of the Party and its ultimate goal. In brief, Democrats tend to favor an active role for government in society and believe that such involvement (anything, from environmental regulations against polluting to anti-discrimination laws) can improve the quality of life and help achieve the larger goals of opportunity and equality. Republicans, on the other side, tend to favor a restricted position for government in society and think that such dependence on the private industry (companies and people) (e.g. avoiding unnecessary environmental regulations or anti-discrimination legislation) can enhance financial efficiency and help attain the broader objectives of liberty and self-reliance.
