POLS NOTES DAY 4: Video (When the Levy Broke)  Why is Federalism a blueprint for conflict??  Fighting ,drugs, alcohol, crowding when everyone fled the city. (after hurricane Katrina)  State police could not verify reports of chaos going on in city… “Most disasters like this bring out the best in people, but it was bringing out the worst,”- governor of Louisiana.  Police of city exaggerating of about what was going on and making things seem worse.  Took President Bush a long time to finally address the catastrophe that hit the Gulf region. When he finally did address it, he said he “wasn’t informed.”  There was information prior to the storm that Bush ignored because arrogance of power and people were socially and racially unimportant.  Day 4/5 and government still did not appear at scene of disaster  CNN news anchor and her research assistant had more intelligence than government officials…  Mayor of Louisiana runs out of resources  expects States to come in and help… (criticism of Mayor for dragging his feet before hurricane hits. Warned businesses first of hurricane )  Local government didn’t have capability of handling crisis alone. Next level (State governor) utilized state resources and marshal law.  State governor asked in every way possible for national help.  Federal government doesn’t react quickly. FEMA (Federal emergency medical agency) is on the ground since day one, but head of FEMA (Michael Brown) wasn’t qualified.  Secretary of Homelands Security failed to declare this event as a “national disaster” so Federals couldn’t release any national support/help.  President Bush flies over tragedy after two days, but didn’t land.  criticized.  Looters = people who steal things in times of crisis (thieves)  This would have played out different if we had a unitary government… things would have been implemented more quickly and efficiently. Federalist #51  Anti-federalist papers in response to federalist papers.  Interest groups = bound to a common interest.  Madison worries that one faction could take over; so argues for a large Republic.  Large republic would result in more faction groups, though… less likely for one faction to take over. (review of federalist #10)  How to prevent tyranny of the majority and of the few: o Divide government to create separation of powers. o Compound federal system = central government and state government o How can you truly separate powers of government ?? – people elect each branch separately . o Today, we can only elect legislative branch Best means to secure = not elected, president nominates them, permanent tenor
