Ethan Fuller Mr. Mauritz AP Government & Politics -date Summer Assignment The United States of America was founded in the right place, at the right time, for the right reasons. Our uniqueness, freedom, creativity, and strength all stem from being the first country born to debate. But there were multiple lucky circumstances that allowed us to do this. Perhaps so fortuitous that if some of these things never occurred, America may have not been founded like it was today. We were founded in the right place because the land where the colonies had settled were bereft of gold, which resulted in a long term "light" administrative hand from the British. The colonies were afterthoughts to them (they had been for over 180 years), and when the "grip tightened", as a result on the tax of tea, a revolution occurred. We were founded in the right time because people were getting smarter. Top-down authority was fading, King James I declaring that he ruled by divine right was a testament to this, and people wanted their voice to be heard in the expression of religion. And we were founded for the right reasons because for the first time, men thought that the free mind and soul of a Man was the answer to explaining the world and rule of it, not a crown. The practice of argument and debate allows the American people to exercise their right of free speech under the constitution, a right that this country has shed blood over to protect, and allows our voices to translate into useful ideas as
The Southern States of America was made up of the following, Georgia with Atlanta as the Capital of the new union, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, South Carolina, Louisiana, Tennessee and Kentucky. Although, Kentucky wasn’t a sure bet at this point, there was still a lot of work to do in that state.
Following numerous events in the 1850’s and early 1860’s, eleven of the southern states of the United States of America would make a fateful decision to succeed from the Nation. They would in turn create their own independent country, the Confederate States of America. This action and its ramifications echoed throughout the world during the Era and the effects are still felt today. A civil war would ensue, lasting from April of 1861 until May of 1865. During this conflict approximately 700,000 people would lose their lives and the end would come with the Confederate States of America surrendering at Appomattox Courthouse.
The basic explanation of what this compromise was, is basically a package of 5 different bills that the United states Congress passed in 1850. That is not all though, for it is rather more complicated than just being 5 different bills. to further understand the compromise, you need to think back to the slave and free states of our country at this time.
The 113th Congress has been considered as the worst congress in the history of the United States. The highly polarized institution showed its inefficiency when dealing with the fiscal budget. By failing to pass a new budget, the American government shutdown for a couple of weeks. One of the leading causes of disagreement between the two parties was the extension of the debt ceiling limitation. The government is accruing more and more debt every year, and not passing a budget could eventually lead to a default on American loans. Although the 113th congress resolved their issues during the 16 days of shutdown, they ultimately postponed the battle till the next year. In my paper, I will explain the background of S.540, the Temporary Debt Limit Extension Act, who introduced it and how each party opposed each other on this bill. This bill went through a yearlong journey starting in the Senate and ending on the president’s desk. I will then conclude by evaluating the proposed bill and explain why it was signed and enacted as a law.
In the United States of America, slavery has been abolished formally on December 6, 1865 through the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Constitution has also established the fundamental law, method of governing, and rights of individuals. However, what if I told you that there is a certain group of people who are unjustifiably stopped, searched, and arrested by law enforcement, governed by a different set of laws which are more strict, in addition to the justice system that further dictates their lives after release and all this because of their race and ethnicity. This was the reality of the five black and hispanic teens in the Central Park jogger case, the people of color who cannot afford a prominent attorney, the people
The journey of how the United States of America became the United States of America is a very complex one. With America declaring separation from the Great English Empire, to the organization of becoming a free, sovereign nation and lastly, the migration and colonization of the now, western United States, including the great state of Nevada, has many components. The Declaration of Independence initiated the process of becoming a country of its own. This Document pushed the separation from England and showed the world that America was now its own nation. The United States Constitution laid out the blue print of how the United States would work. This was after a failed attempt of the Articles of Confederation. After the Constitution was created, the process of migrating west began in order to colonize the western region of the United States. Nevada had a big role in this because we helped President Abraham Lincoln gain a second term. The first chapters of the story of the Untied States of America were a dangerous, difficult and long one, but because of this, the people that live in this country today have the freedom of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The entrance of the United States of America into the First World War in 1917 on the sides of the allies impacted the outcome of the Great War by tilting the strategic military balance in favor for the allies and against the Central Powers. The Central Powers, made up of the German Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and the Austria-Hungarian Empire, were fighting to preserve their empires in light of geopolitical shifts occurring at the time. The US entered the war partially to restore Global Peace and also to vanquish the German Empire, which had antagonized the US by seeking to form a hostile military alliance with Mexico to the detriment of American national interests (Doyle 1160).

At the beginning of the 18th century, the United States of America was beginning its long journey to becoming a nation. Free from the British Empire the United States started a government for and by the people something lacking previously. As George Washington was sworn into office his wife, Marsha Washington also took on new responsibilities. The Republican court was formed as a unifying tool. Held in the center of the country at the time, Philadelphia, it served as a way for people to converse about various topics. For Marsha Washington it became a social gathering. Described by Abigail Adams as “Too bibulous (two quarter casks of wine and spirits drained), too ravenous (200 pounds of cake gobbled), and too loud.” AS Washington’s term came to an end, John Adams was voted. Abigail Adams came to take over the Republican Court. She came to reform and modernize the conversation and status of the court. With experiences in European courts, thanks to her husband’s political ambassador experiences, she saw the European court ceremonies of dress, conversation and overall prestige with the courts. The Early Republican Court became a symbol and a tool for women to display their political knowledge.
Recently emerging as a significant trend amongst the health-conscious community, quinoa has become a symbol of healthy and organic living across America. Due to this sudden rise in demand, this Bolivian superfood has been hitting the shelves of stores around the country faster than ever. This journey to American supermarket shelves is one that has recently come under scrutiny for its effects on the environment and the Bolivian farmers who grow and harvest it. In this paper, I will discuss the details of the importation of quinoa from Bolivia, the impact this grain has had on the natives of Bolivia and the environment as a whole, and the symbolic and material value this grain possesses in the everyday culture of the United States.

The United States of America has over five million primary care physicians who directly affect the overall quality and cost of healthcare by way of their treatments, prescriptions, orders and diagnoses. These doctors strive every day to provide top quality care, even though they are stretched to the max, due to the decreasing amount of qualified primary care doctors available today.
Slavery in the United States of America has a long history. The legal institution of human chattel slavery in the country has long been part of its society. In fact, its existence can be traced in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries after the country gained independence from its colonial masters and prior to the end of the American Civil War (Sublette and Sublette 180). Apparently, the existence of slavery during this particular period is highly attributed to the fact that the same has been practiced in British North America, having been declared legal in all thirteen colonies thereof at the time of the Declaration of Independence.
The concept of the United States is so ingrained into the hearts of Americans that it can be hard to imagine when the home of the brave did not exist. However, the early seventeenth century features the origins of a country no one could imagine at the time. It began with James I issuing a charter to the Virginia Company, known then as the London Company, in 1606, but it progressed from that rough start to become the first permanent English colony in North America, located in Jamestown. New additions soon came to what would be the United States: Plymouth in 1620; eastern Massachusetts in 1630; and finally Maryland in 1632. The first two colonized regions of North America by the British, the Chesapeake Bay and New England, faced early
