About Politics and Its Insight to the World

By Treeves Subscribe to RSS | January 4th 2012 | Views:

Are you as a person willing to sink into politics? What do you feel about politics in your state? Have you ever felt the impulse to change the political scenario in your country? Well ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to change something about politics whenever my political science teacher conducted her boring lectures. I had always sensed a feeling of power in me to reform politics, but gradually as I became older, I realized that politics was not my cup of tea and I began pursuing dreams of my own following my heart. But I always had the curiosity of discovering how the political system actually works in America. If you are someone like me, then read further.

In USA, the President, Congress and the Judiciary share their powers reserved to the national government. The President, Congress and the Judiciary share their powers reserved to the national government. The President says, "Hey…I am the head of state and head of government," which means he is a representative of the state and a cabinet of government officials. The Congress explains itself by saying, "Hi. I comprise of the two houses called the Senate and House of Representatives." Finally the Judiciary in turn describes itself stating, "I am a bunch of the federal courts." Now the United States is a federal constitutional republic which means the head of the state (the President) and other officials are representatives of the people and they must govern according to constitutional law which means they cannot use their power to control the citizens of America. Here the head of the state and all officials are chosen by election and they cannot inherit their positions thus making the state republic.

Republic is that form of government where people get to choose their leaders and it's the people who have supreme control over the government. This means everyone keeps a check on everyone. Isn't that a balanced and interesting concept? John Adams has rightly defined republic as a government of laws and not of men. Here no individual is allowed to control or use any of the executive, legislative or judiciary powers rather these powers are divided into three different branches that place a check and balance one another, so there is absolutely no possibility of any group or a person rising to power. Now that's smart, hah? I hope by now you have a brainstorm of how politics works out here.

Now let's come to the hot and juicy topic of what is happening at present in politics. Ooh..!!! It's the elections of course. The Obamas are campaigning as hard as ever to gain momentum in the upcoming elections. With their own websites and speeches now, Obama is now actually planning to organize live web chats for people who back him in Iowa. I honestly feel that the current political set up is in a way hindering his attempts to do good for his people. It has to be agreed that the US economy has been considerably low. But Obama is much better than his rival counterparts when it comes to fighting major challenges hindering America's progress. It's just that he is being coldcocked by complicated systems in the American politics.

Every profession involves a risk which is called occupational hazard. Do you know the risk involved in politics? Yes, you're right. It's the safety of the politicians which definitely is a matter of concern. How can one forget the shocking incidents of the assassination of Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy? It still remains so fresh in our minds. Well, I am a normal citizen, but I have taken pains and made security arrangements for my home with ADT Home Security Systems. When safety can be a priority for someone like me, then why not for politicians?
