That is even true in writing this paper, I will have to write many drafts without errors, and to meet what I feel is right. It will only be natural for me to make these mistakes. But, just as in making errors on this paper and making the corrections, making mistakes in life and correcting those makes for a better human being. During my nineteen years of life, I have made many mistakes. More than I care to share. But, I have learned many lessons from these mistakes. One hard earned lesson came at the age of sixteen, the age when we all feel we have reached adulthood. From the moment I received my driver’s permit, my parents told me repeatedly, “Be Careful, Drive Slow, Drive Safe!” Not being a safe driver could cost you, your life, or someone else’s live.

However, when William Pitt, British secretary in 1757, increased Britain’s financial commitment to the war and gave the British and American colonies the resources they needed to defeat the French in the battle in 1760. Because of the Treaty of…

Moderates and conservatives sought to curb the power of direct democracy by dispersing political authority among several branches of government.

nominations have been made and seconded. A simple majority is required in each party, although this may require many ballots.
Finally, the vice-presidential candidate is selected. Although there is no law saying that the candidates must come from different states, it is, practically, necessary for this to be the case.

From Jackson to Nixon: The Changes Remembered
Have you ever wondered, what if you did something differently in the past, what would the result have been? Maybe you thought about the time you stayed up the night before that big test you knew you would pass. Instead, you failed because you did not get a good sleep and you were tired. On the other hand, have you ever thought about what America would be like if it were not for tough…
