The Evolution of American Government
From the paper:
?Although a relatively new country, the United States of America has a political system rich in history. In many ways the Founding Fathers were political pioneers, attempting to establish a form of government that would successfully balance the desire for strong personal liberties with the obvious need for a reasonably strong central government. The system they established was unique and, although very resistant to change, continues to provide solid guidance for government 200 years after its origin. Nonetheless, the United States political system has necessarily evolved to meet the changing needs of the Republic. This evolution of government can be clearly seen by examining the old system of politics as well as the new era of government.?
