Ronald Wilson Reagan was the 40th President of the United States. Before that, he was the 33rd Governor of California and also a radio, film, and television actor. Reagan was born and raised in Illinois. He was a Democrat at first, until the 1950s when he shifted to the Republican side. Reagan served as President from 1981-1989, with George H.W. Bush as his running mate. Incumbent President Jimmy Carter was his opponent in 1980, and former Vice President Walter Mondale was his opponent in the 1984 election. In order to make sure that no one from another country, or anyone too young, can run for President, there are three Constitutional qualifications for the office of President. First, the President must be a natural-born U.S. citizen. Next, he must be at least 35 years old. Lastly, he must have resided in the United States for at least 14 years. We also have informal qualifications, one being political experience, such as a governor or senator. Reagan attended Dixon High School, then Eureka College in Illinois. After college, he moved to Iowa and enlisted in the Army Enlisted Reserve as a private, and was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Officers Reserve Corps. He was in active duty for three years, but never went overseas. He was governor of California for two terms (1966-1974). Reagan won his first Presidency in 1980, and as he was giving his inaugural address, 52 U.S. hostages being held by Iran for 444 days, were set free. After only sixty-nine days into his administration, he was victim of an assassination attempt and was close to death during surgery, but survived, making him the first serving U.S. President to survive being shot in an assassination attempt. Reagan also helped the economy with his “Reaganomics,” or “trickle-down-economics”, by implementing policies based on supply-side economics, advocating a classical liberal and laissez-faire philosophy, trying to stimulate the economy with large, across-the-board tax cuts. Two other major events that happened during his first Presidency were 1. during the Lebanese Civil War that killed 241 American servicemen, Reagan ordered U.S. forces to invade Grenada, code named Operation Urgent Fury; and 2. he escalated the Cold War and administered what would be known as the “Reagan Doctrine.” During Reagan’s second Presidential campaign, he became the first American President to open an Olympic Games

Those who occupy the office of president in the United States are entrusted with enormous responsibility. The president is the leader of the Executive Branch and holds all the power bestowed by the constitution, and occupies many roles that must be handled simultaneously. Because the Executive branch consists of the president, his duties and powers are many times that of a regular officer in order to establish a balance between the executive and…
work on my warm-up when Mr.Seymour walked up to the middle of the classroom calling for attention. He had a hand full of papers that he gave to the student in front of him and ordered, “Take one and pass it around.”
I skimmed the paper, but back then it was hard to understand exactly what it was. On one side it said Republican, and on the other it said Democrat. I skimmed the paper and noticed that there were a lot of old Caucasians in suits. It was typical that whenever it came to politics that an…

For over three decades, scholarship on the American presidency has taken place beneath the shadow of Richard
Neustadt's Presidential Power  , first published in 1960 and periodically updated since that time. Neustadt's book can be
seen to also exist beneath a larger shadow cast by the developing notion of a modern presidency that dated from the
administration of Franklin…
The Republican Party was badly divided in 1964 between its conservative and moderate-liberal factions. Former Vice-President Richard Nixon, who had been beaten by Kennedy in the extremely close 1960 presidential election, decided not to run. Nixon, a moderate with ties to both wings of the GOP, had been able to unite the factions in 1960; in his absence the way was clear for the two factions to engage in an all-out political civil war for the nomination…

However, from her beginnings, the United States followed a different tradition. Because the government of the U.S. was to be made “of…

each eligible client. These rules set a foundation for the agency, which helps avoid circumstances of favoritism or stigmatization. By establishing specific eligibility rules for all clients, it is easier to identify the qualifying individuals. This paper will evaluate and discuss the eligibility rules used by AIDS when determining who qualifies for services and under what conditions they qualify.
The AIDS organization is partnered with several federal agencies which provide a broad range of services…

Digital media strategies are a crucial component of political campaigns. Established political elites use database and Internet technologies to raise money, organize volunteers, gather intelligence on voters, and do opposition research. Increasingly, digital technologies are used to organize political information in the public sphere, and unlike those used in traditional media, these interactive tools allow for both…

Although, the artists run the risk of being burned; encaustic painting has its advantages as well. An advantage has to do with the way the wax will not harm the paper over time. The use of the hot wax also gives the painting texture on the surface.
The artist I decided to focus on is Jasper Johns. He was born in Georgia on May 15, 1930 and is still alive at the age of 80. His most current award does not have to do with art, but Johns was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom…
