Obama wants to basically ban federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay wtih each other. He does not have the support of congress in this action, so he is limited. The order has to be approved by congress so that it can pass. Republicans are saying that he is abusing his power to executive order. It is believed that his new orders will place burden on companies, increasing their costs. The congress is not really responding to the issue on gay rights. They might be hesitant because it is a very controversial issue, and they want to be re-elected.
Video on msnbc.com: The age-old practice of politicians re-drawing Congressional districts to find friendly voters, or, gerrymandering, has allowed members of the House of Representatives from both sides of the aisle to stay in power regardless of...
Gerrymandering is basically redrawing maps to find friendly voters. They choose the areas that have more people who will vote for them. House seats are reapportioned every ten years. One solution provided in the video would be to get mathematicians to do the redistricting and take the politics out of it. The incumbent may not be reelected. If they redistrict for a certain party, that party will win in the electoral college.
People are looking for someone who can handle the stress and responsibilities that come with being president, whether they are democratic or republican. The author is more focused on the negative side of people in office. With the permanent program, he says they should begin preparing years before in order to show they are serious about the placement. They should be able to handle what comes with the presidency before and after it happens. There is an advantage to being identified as an early leader because you've shown that you are serious about what you're doing and that the people like you and your image.
Texas remains a Republican-leaning state because its white residents are becoming increasingly Republican and its large Hispanic population, though solidly Democratic, is less so than Hispanics nationally.
More Hispanics are classifying themselves as democrats. They are a minority, but are becoming the majority especially in Texas. More Hispanics classify as democratic in Texas as opposed to republican. Many Hispanics are not registered to vote, so they affect the results. They are not participative in politics. The polls were taken at random.
The businesses are favored in a lot of his decisions. Precedent is a court ruling that has previously happened that is applicable to a current case. One example this court used was the Voting Rights Act. Obama might realign the goals. Ruth Bader Ginsburg I believe is the swing justice, I can't really find it. They probably swing because they want to please a lot of people and tend to be more open-minded. The author seems kind of arrogant in his writing. He is a supreme court correspondent, so he should not be too biased in his words, but there is always some sort of bias.
The NRA is using its millions of followers and making them oppose Murthy. They are concerned with the fact that he is against guns. They want to be re-elected, so they are voting against him. They want to please their constituents. The president/white present the nomination.? They decided they needed to readjust the approach of his nomination. They've learned to reevaluate the nominations and make them look better.
All about the Electoral College. This original video from Disney Educational Productions tackles one of the most interesting elements of U.S. presidential el...
firstname.lastname@example.org Schad's insight:
1. It helps each state be represented fairly and equally.
2. They usually go after swing states because either party could get them, and they go after large states because they have a greater number of electors. Swing states are states that could either go Republican or Democrat. Safe states are states that generally stick to one party for each election.
3.The House of Representatives votes for the president when neither candidate receives the majority of the electoral college vote.
4. The election of 2000 was really close, and Florida was the deciding state, giving Bush the presidency by one electoral vote.
5. I guess it makes sense, but I still feel like they should do it on the number of vote from the people. We are supposed to be a part of the process, after all. We should be able to vote for them directly instead of voting for the electorate.
More Americans today are satisfied with where the nation stands on acceptance of gays and lesbians, federal taxes, and healthcare availability than were satisfied in 2001. But Americans' satisfaction with the economy has declined.
They kind of do because of 9/11. The fact they had foreign wars is a big reason our satisfaction has declined. For the most part, Republicans are more satisfied, which is expected. Democrats want more open laws and have more ideals for the individual, Republicans are okay with the more strict rulings. The policies that are aimed more at making the individuals happier by giving them more rights and freedoms will be favored by the Democrats, and the opposite for Republicans. I would not completely trust the data, because they only polled people over 18 who live in DC. They did not get a random enough sampling for it to be really accurate.
