The American political system is made up of primarily two parties, Democrats and Republicans. These parties go against each-other for many political positions, such as presidency. Each supports and opposes different issues. The Democratic Party supports a bigger government and believes the government should guide the people. They are known as Liberals because typically they like change. The Republican Party supports a smaller government and believes the people should guide the government. They are known as Conservatives because they are in favor of the core laws of this country. Some people do not consider themselves Democratic or Republican. Not all members agree with the majority vote of their party. Each party has a majority
In the United States of America, the political party system is pivotal to the function of our nation. The political party system in our society today is separated between the Democrats and the Republicans. Although political parties do possess uncertainties their advantages outweigh their drawbacks in America. The United States of America is made up of two basic political parties, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. A political party is a group of individuals who share similar interest and they work together with one another to construct and execute policies. The Democratic Party was established in 1828, by Andrew Jackson. The Democratic Party was created based on a belief in an unyielding government and an advocacy of social and
Political parties today started to form in the late 1600’s. In 1787, Hamilton and other leaders joined and called themselves the Federalist. The Federalist party is the party which is most qualified for the presidency because the Federalist want a central government, want to avoid foreign affairs, and also want a central banking system. First a strong central governments.
This political party is very strict to their views and use history to show how a traditional marriage is the only logical way to continue a working society. Republican believe since homosexuals are unable to reproduce, they are unwilling to have a functional family, which is why they do not agree with same-sex marriage. Since the republicans did not pass this bill same-sex marriage is still currently today illegal in Wyoming. By not passing this bill in Laramie this shows that there is still ignorance throughout both the town of Laramie, the state of Wyoming, and the country of the United States of America. This ignorance will continue to roam throughout Laramie until change happens fully accepting all homosexuals as equal members of the
Government has been a paramount piece of the United States’s development after July 4, 1776. The role of government has been pivotal to the process of how America operates today. Government is an important part of America’s society because it protects individual rights of people. Government is a forever changing entity because it is a necessity to satisfy the people’s demands. As a political party, Democrats and Republicans have many views on different topics in America. Although the Democrats and Republicans may have different stances on modern issues in America, many of these politicians seem to have the same attitude toward changing policies on these issues/government. I believe that the democratic party is more appropriate party to represent the United States because of their philosophy. The traditional values of America needs to be altered and the democratic party represents the change that America needs. The democratic party best represents an ever-changing society by exemplifying the desires of the citizens as is apparent in their policies in regards to abortion, gun control, and same-sex marriage.
The Democratic Party is one of two major political parties in the United States. I associate myself as a Democrat for the reason of their liberal views. The Democratic Party tends to be more liberal and support the views like same sex marriage, immigration, and social and economic equality. Many of the views the party stands for and beliefs tie to my beliefs. Some of the key priorities of the Democratic Party are the Economy, Poverty and Homelessness, Education, Healthcare Policy, Social Security and Medicare, Immigration, and Gun Policy.
However, they do support the repeal of discriminatory laws and policies against members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. The Republicans on the other hand support legislations that would make it a felony to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple and for any civil official to perform a marriage ceremony for such. I agree with the Democratic Party’s platform for multiple reasons. The main reason is that we should all be afforded equal rights. The LGBT community is continuously refused rights that the typical American is granted on a daily basis. Marriage is one of those rights. A couple should not be denied something as sacred as marriage simply because the beliefs or religion of another human being do not agree with it. After all it is solely about the legal aspect of it and getting the legal approval not the religious one. A same-sex couple is not harming anybody by joining in marriage. Some may argue that they don’t want to see it in their environment because it goes against their religion. In that case we would ban secular music, swear words and any other walk of life that doesn’t agree with a certain way of thinking. By taking away their right to marry you are taking away their rights to a stable retirement that they have both put money into. Couples who are LGBT are not exempt from paying taxes just like heterosexual couples so they shouldn’t be denied the same
I support the republican platform on the issue of homosexual marriage. Marriage has been traditionally defined as a recognized union between a man and a woman. Since the law has changed, dictionaries have now added that it is also between two people of the same sex. (Merriam-Webster). Marriage has been traditionally recognized, condoned, and conducted by the church of your choice. It is spiritual in nature, based on the natural attraction and love of town persons of the opposite sex. Many citizens in this day and age have come to believe that it is strictly a legal status, given its tax breaks and advantages. The Democratic Party and Supreme Court have taken the sanctity of marriage and traditions of the church and made it about discrimination. There are other ways to stop discrimination without crushing the values and beliefs that America was founded on. Democrats have taken a blind eye on separation of church and state with this issue. Due to the stated discrimination issue and the governments need to step in and correct what they think is a deficiency, there should have been a measure taken to not involve the government into the business of the church. A legal status could have been given to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community (LGBT). That legal status would have allowed the LGBT community to enjoy the same
At one point or another we had all heard the words Republican and Democrats each party has its own purpose and i on the neutral side. Republicans think that there should be tax cuts for every individual both people and corporations and factories. On the other hand Democrats think there should only be some cuts for the middle and low income families and believe there should be a higher tax on corporations and wealthy individuals. Also the republican tend to be conservative on the social issues the oppose gay marriage and promote the marriage being between a woman and a man another thing they also disagree on is abortion and the right of gun ownership. Therefore Democrats are more progressive in their thoughts they favor abortion
In conclusion, both the Democratic and the Republican Parties have the interest and the wellbeing of the citizens at heart. Despite, the Republicans are known to be a much more conservative party on all issue; their ideology was the best for the American people in the sense that they believed their system was fair and benefited to every American. Again, the Republicans believe that people should be able to live in greater freedom and prosperity if they encourage and directed to the right path in their decisions. One unique thing their ideology is that despite numerous challenges and modifications, this ideology has been able to persist through over the years and shape the nation and government in various historic ways. This is a true testament
Americans are finding that identifying with one of the two major parties is an impossible task. They feel neither of the parties hold their beliefs on how they feel the government or the state they live in should be run. They are fed up with the bickering and arguing that goes on between parties. This bickering and arguing gets out of hand and the real issues get put on the back burner. Americans feel the important issues are being ignored so the two parties can argue about who is the better party. Americans are sick of the arguing and want to get back to dealing with and taking care of the issues. Americans want the political parties to do what is best for the American people, not what is best for the political parties. Sometimes doing what
In 1824, John Quincy Adams became the 6th president of the United States. The candidates of the 1824 election were John Quincy Adams, Henry Clay, Andrew Jackson, and William Crawford. All four of them were part of the same political party, Democratic-Republican. The two main candidates were Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams. John C. Calhoun was elected vice president with a majority of the votes.
The reason that people believe that there are two Americas is because every has a different opinion about everything. People feel different about thing .This why we have two major political parties. People get these options because of their life experiences.
If you go ask any registered voter what party they're in they will most likely tell you Republican or Democrat and sometimes they'll also give you an extensive list of reasons why you should be too. But if you went back and asked our first president, George Washington, what political party he belongs to he would tell you that he isn't in one. Before Washington stepped down from office, he left us with two words of advice and they are: do not get involved with foreign affairs and do not create political parties. The first we listened to Washington’s advice and created the Monroe Doctrine, but the second Washington stepped down Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson had different things in mind than what Washington had intended for the country.
I prefer the Democratic Party because I agree with their philosophy on a lot of important issues. In addition, there are certain issues such as mental health, police reform, health care, privacy and data security, and other social issues that I really
