Complete the graphic organizer about Federalists and AntiFederalists 2. Summarize in your own words the main ideas in Washingtons

Farewell address regarding Political parties Excerpt from George Washington's Farewell Address: 1796 I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State... Let me nowwarn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally. Continue The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissensionis itself a frightful despotism. Modern Politics Hillary Clinton

Democratic Party Nominee for President Jill Stein Green Party Nominee for President Donald Trump Republican Party Nominee for President Gary Johnson Libertarian Party Nominee for President There are FOUR major party candidates for

president. Take the survey in classroom to see how your opinions match up with theirs! Quick Think Are Political parties a good idea or a bad idea? Would you join one or not, and why? TODAYS VOCAB Ideology set of beliefs held by a person or group of people that guides their decisions and actions Faction a smaller group within a larger group; factions usually have specific

goals that are a bit different from the goals of the full group Political Party organization of people who share a common ideology and work together to help elect people they agree with PURPOSE OF A PARTY: Organize people that share similar ideologies to win elections The Political Spectrum Today LEFT V RIGHT Reflects beliefs about ECONOMICS AUTHORITARIAN V. LIBERTARIAN Reflects views on social issues

Follow the link from my website: Unit 4, Lesson 1: https:// www.isidewith.com/electi ons/2016-presidential-qui z Political Party Systems Single Party System Common in dictatorships; only one ruling party exists; other parties are illegal China, North Korea, Cuba Multi-party Systems Voters pick their preferred party in a national election

Government power is divided among each political party based on the percentage of votes each party earned a party that earns 13% of the national vote gets 13% of the power 25% of the vote = 25% of the seats in the legislature; etc. Often called proportional or parliamentary systems Leading political parties must form a coalitions in order to govern; If the yellow party got 40 % of the vote, it cannot govern without the support of other parties. This increases the likelihood of cooperation and compromise

American Two-Party System Winner take all system is based on competition between ONLY TWO major political parties Other parties exist but have very little power Little incentive to compromise with the opposing party Major Parties v. Minor (Third) Parties U.S. has two major parties: Democratic Republican

major parties win almost all elections BECAUSE they: Have access to more funders Are familiar to voters Are automatically placed on the ballot in each election Minor Parties political parties in the U.S. that exist but have very little power Rarely win elections, BUT: Can influence major party candidates by focusing on issues and forcing them into the public discussion

Can influence election results by pulling votes away from a major party candidate Role of Third Parties: The 2000 Presidential Election Ralph Nader Green Party Candidate won 97,000 votes in Florida in 2000. Ran on platform of protecting the environment, and helping poor workers. Many Democrats felt he was trying to earn votes that would normally go to Democrats. George W. Bush (R) got 537 more in Florida votes than Al Gore (D) Al Gore won the national popular vote in 2000, but because Bush won Florida, he won the Presidential election DISCUSSION PROMPT: Is the two-party system bad for American politics? Would we be better off with a multi-party system?

Party Platform PARTY PLATFORM SET OF POLICY GOALS A POLITICAL PARTY WANTS TO IMPLEMENT REPRESENTS THE CORE BELIEFS OF THAT POLITICAL PARTY, AND SHOWS WHAT THEY WOULD DO IF THEY HAD THE POWER TO DO IT TODAYS VOCAB Partisanship extreme form of loyalty to your own political party partisans tend to make decisions and take

actions based on what is good for their own political party Reduces willingness to compromise with political opponents More definitions Consumers individuals who participate in the economy by purchasing (consuming) goods and services Regulations restrictions on businesses that protect consumers, the environment, and other public interests Laissez faire idea that government should stay out of the economy & that all regulations are bad Basic Ideological Categories: Liberalism: belief that government has an important role to

play in managing the economy and making sure all people are treated fairly Conservative: belief that people are most free when government stays out of the economy, but that government SHOULD play a role in upholding traditional family values Libertarian ideology that places individual freedom above all other political goals Authoritarian ideology that places order and security above all other political goals Platform Planks --specific parts of a party platform Democratic Examples Universal health care Stronger gun control laws Raise taxes on millionaires

to pay for infrastructure plan Global warming is caused by human activity Republican Examples Tax cuts Flat Tax Repeal Obamas health care bill No or very few restrictions on gun ownership Climate change is not a problem Economic Policy Left Leaning (Liberal)

government should regulate the economy to protect consumers from abuse by corporations Right Leaning (Conservative) Laissez faire government should stay out of the economy WHAT YOULL BE DOING NEXT: Download & Use this powerpoint to learn about each Partys platform Using your graphic organizer, indicate the position each party takes on the issues listed.

Liberals support: progressive income tax rates Higher incomes are taxed at higher rates Income above $250,000 is taxed at a higher percentage Conservatives support: The Flat Tax All incomes are taxed equally at 15% National sales tax The Buffett Rule Special tax on people earning $1 million or more named after billionaire Warren

Buffett who supports the idea http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=hOyDR2b71ag Some conservatives would completely eliminate income taxes & only collect taxes when consumers purchase products or services Economic Policy: Business Regulation Liberals Support laws designed to protect workers, consumers, & the environment

Minimum wage laws Clean Air Act Fuel efficiency standards Fair lending laws to limit interest rates on credit cards and homeloans Without regulations, big businesses will run over consumers & workers Conservatives believe businesses should be free from government rules that

make it harder to make money Let the free market set wages and prices without a minimum wage requirement Regulations cost businesses money and make it harder to create jobs Economic Policy: Education Policy Liberals support Full funding for public schools More money to reduce class size, hire and retain teachers, purchase supplies, etc.

Free universal pre-K Polices to help reduce poverty in communities that negatively affect studens Conservatives believe in school choice Idea that parents should have the option of receiving vouchers ($$$) that they can use to help pay for private school if they want Vouchers remove $$ from public schools but are usually not enough to cover full tuition for private school Charter schools

set up by private companies or nonprofits; must be approved by the State Basing teacher pay on student test scores Economic Policy: Health Care Liberals support National healthcare system that guarantees insurance is affordable for everyone Everyone needs health care at some point, so everyone must buy insurance Use tax $$ to make sure that poor families can afford coverage

Expanding Medicare eligibility to cover more families Conservatives believe It is not the governments job to guarantee healthcare If you dont want insurance, you should not be forced to buy it its too bad people are poor, but thats just how it is Social Policy: Abortion / Reproductive Rights Liberals Support a womans right to choose

Support public funding for contraception and sex education Conservatives Want to outlaw abortion and/ or make it more difficult: parental notification laws Required ultrasounds Ultimately want to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision; do not believe that the constitution protects a right to privacy Support abstinence only education programs

Social Policy: LGBT Rights Liberals believe People in the LGBT community should have all the same rights and privileges as heterosexuals Gay marriage Adoption rights Military service Tax benefits for marriage/domestic partnership

Gay rights are human rights and this is a civil rights issue Conservatives believe Homosexuality is wrong and should not be rewarded by society Ban gay marriage Prohibit adoption by samesex parents Restore Dont Ask Dont Tell limit domestic partnership benefits to married, heterosexual couples Social Policy: The Environment Liberals believe Human activity has

damaged the environment and we must take actions to protect the planet Clean Air & Clean water laws Fuel standards Deal with global warming Conservatives believe Growing the economy is more important than protecting the environment Environmental laws cost jobs Environmental laws hurt American companies compared to countries with weaker environmental laws Global warming is not real

Social Policy: Immigration Liberals believe We are a nation of immigrants Deporting 11.5 million people is impossible Current immigration law breaks up families and is inhumane Undocumented immigrants do important work that Americans will not do Deport those who commit crimes; leave the rest alone We should pass the Dream Act Conservatives believe

Immigration is a threat to the U.S. economy Immigrants take American jobs Immigrants drain the budget by receiving services (like school) without paying taxes (This is not quite true) The U.S. should secure the border and deport all undocumented immigrants Social Policy: Criminal Justice Liberals believe Most crime is caused by poverty

Convicts should be educated and rehabilitated Job programs are needed to help freed prisoners re-enter society Current drug policy does not work Decriminalizing drug use would reduce violent crime Death penalty is racially biased Conservatives believe Prisons should focus on punishment Use 3 strikes laws to punish repeat offenders

Inmates should have limited rights of appeal The death penalty is justified Foreign Policy: Military Funding Liberals believe Budget cuts should include cuts to the military; we currently spend about $741 BILLION twice what China spends 1/3 of global military spending is spent by the U.S. We can spend a lot less and still have the best military in

the world Conservatives support Maintaining or increasing military spending The war on terror and the growing power of China require the U.S. to maintain its military dominance Foreign Policy: Foreign Intervention Liberals believe the U.S. should work with other nations to protect human rights around the world Provide foreign aid to assist

developing nations with infrastructure and education projects Rely on diplomacy as much as possible Conservatives believe: We are not the worlds police force We should not intervene militarily to protect human rights in other countries We should use any means necessary in the war on terror

use force to protect economic interests such as oil A Summary: The Two Party System American politics are dominated by two major political parties. Here are some basic differences. Democratic Supports social programs Supports environmental and labor regulations Believes those who make more money should pay higher taxes Generally support a womans right to choose, gay rights and immigration reform

Republican Want fewer government programs Believe individuals should be left to succeed/fail on their own Believe that higher taxes on the wealthy hurt job creation Generally oppose abortion, same sex marriage, and immigration reform NOW: LEARN ABOUT EACH PARTY PLATFORM YESTERDAY: PHASE ONE: LEARNING: Go to: www.mrggcivics.weebly.com Select: Unit Materials
