Review Session Know the history! 5 or 6 questions on the European stuf Where do we get the concept of democracy? Where do we get the concept of republic? 3 Powers in fighting of America France= language and culture England=Race Spain= religion  The French American war made the British bankrupt so they wanted the colonists to pay them back. So they started taxing them which lead to the revolutionary war.  Shays rebellion  White guys made the constitution Makes three branches of government (Monique)  Primary is legislation! They make 2 divisions (big problem with the states) it gives the states power so they can choose the senate. The two chambers are equal so one doesn’t over turn the other. And in order for a bill to be passed they both have to agree. After the agree then the bill can go to the president. The president has the power to drop it  Secondary is the President! He is the elected king  Third branch is the Judiciary (supreme Court) the size of the court is not in the constitution. Congress chooses how many  How do you change the government? Constitutional amendment! Both ½ congress and ¾ senate have to agree. Supreme court and President are not involved!  MAKE SURE YOU KNOW ALL THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT Amendment 12- Jeferson and Burr (Pres and VP run together) Ideology! The seating arrangement how left and right were created Study all the types of ideology (In my notes) Liberals and Conservatives are both hybrids Liberals are out numbered 2 to 1 to the conservatives. For liberals to win the need 2/3rds ofrdhe moderates For Conservatives with only need 1/3 of the moderates Select final authority???? (weird rambling at the end of class) U.S is a delegating public
