The Presidential Election of 1972 The Presidential election of 1972 had two strong candidates, President Richard Nixon and George McGovern. There were many issues which had a great deal of importance to the election. The Vietnam war and the stability of the economy at the time were two main factors. The election ended in one the largest political scandals in U.S. history, being the Watergate break-in, and cover-up, by President Richard Nixon. The Democratic party had a large selection of candida

Yet as every second of the day passes, more and more of my money and yours is being allotted to this growing epidemic called welfare. The Personal Responsibility Act, signed by the President, was a monumental change in welfare as we know, or used to know it.

The United States was one of the last major industrialized nations to establish a social security system. In 1911, Wisconsin passed the first state workers compensation law to be held constitutional. At that time, most Americans believed the government should not have to care for the aged, disabled or needy. But s

These policies are installed or fixed for the betterment of trade, inflation, unemployment, the budget, or many other economic factors.

Poverty is a lack of goods and services necessary to maintain a minima
Poverty is a lack of goods and services necessary to maintain a minimal adequate standard of living. The definition of the term adequate varies, however, with the general standard of living in a society and with public attitudes toward deprivation. No university accepted definition of basic needs exists because poverty is a relative concept. In poorer countries it means living at the brink of subsistence, while in our country few improvised families confront starvation, although many suffer fro

The Welfare System Must Remain Public Welfare is an important support system of the United States government. Welfare has its benefits, but the system has pitfalls. Instead of abolishing welfare as critics of the system suggest, reforms can be made to correct the problems while government, either on the state or federal level, can continue to assist the impoverished. The term welfare is used to describe a variety of programs that provide income support and create a safety net for poor individua

1960’s FRQ After World War II, many beliefs and ideals were called into question in the United States. In particular, the span of years between 1954 and 1974 were years of doubt and turmoil. The conditions were ripe for a revolution. Socially, a counterculture was developed in opposition to a conformist mentality. Judicially, the Civil Rights Movement brought about changes in outdated laws that promoted racism and violence. Politically, however, things largely remained sung to the tune of conta

However Mussolini’s Italy had few economic successes between 1924 - 1936, and it remained without a developed industrial base, an issue fundamentally ignored by Mussolini. Mussolini did not actually aim for development, and economic growth, rather an economy which would increase his personal power and help maintain

How do you account for the co existence of poverty and prosperity in Britain during the interwar years? In this essay I am going to examine how and why there was both prosperity and poverty within Britain throughout the interwar years. The war left Britain with a weakened economy, after a brief post war boom ending in April 1921 Britain was in a position where the pre war staple industries such as coal mining were no longer providing jobs. This caused the problem of unemployment concentrated in

For one to make a decision on where they stand on this issue it is imperative to look over the history, facts, and issues at hand.

If a higher caste Hindu is touched by an untouchable or even had a Dalit's shadow across them, they consider themselves to be polluted and have to go through a rigorous series of rituals to be cleansed. In India there are approximately 240 million Dalits. This means that nearly 25% of the population is Dalit. It also means t
