CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLES PROJECT.
Transcript of CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLES PROJECT.
Power is divided/shared between national,state and local government. Each level has its own responsibilities. Examples: Federal Power=Prints Money. State Power:Drivers License. http://wyliberty.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/01.-Nullification_web.jpg
This cartoon relates to federalism because The Bill of Rights stands for National Government and Wyoming Constitution stands for the State and the man in the middle stands for local telling them to work together as a Federal Government.
Rule of Law.
Laws apply to all people. No one, not even the president is above the law. Example:Everyone must pay taxes. http://www.sitnews.us/Cartoonists/032305/lane.gif
This cartoon relates to rule of law because the elephant represents the Republicans and they do not follow the rule of law because they think they are above the law so they piss on it as a sign of disrespect.
Checks and Balances.
Each branch can prevent other from becoming too powerful. Example: Legislative writes the law, Executive administers the law and Judicial interprets the laws. http://www.intoon.com/toons/2005/KeefeM20051011.jpg
This cartoon relates to checks and balances because when there is a vacancy in the supreme court the President nominates a candidate and Congress can give advice and decide whether they are a good choice or not which is the Legislative Branch checking and balancing the Executive Branch's decision.
Judicial branch(court) decides if Government acts violate the Constitution. Example: Brown v. Board of Education> court stated that local segregation laws were illegal. http://www.proprofs.com/quiz-school/upload/yuiupload/1731061090.jpg
This cartoon relates to Judicial Review because with the Legislative and Executive branches are the players so the Judicial branch(the referees) check the US Constitution and it is unconstitutional then the law cannot be passed.
Separation of Power.
The Government's Power is divided between Legislative,Executive and Judicial branches. Example: Judicial Branch interprets the law, Executive enforces the law and Legislative makes the law. http://media.cagle.com/19/2010/01/29/74019_600.jpg
This cartoon relates to separation of law because The Court had a biased ruling and was in favor of Congress and the President is calling the Court out on it and the Court is saying it's ruling is not lousy and biased.
CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLES PROJECT. 2B. Mistre Debay and Ima PJ-Akpan.
People are the source of Government power.
Example:Elections,peaceful demonstrations. http://citizenshiptestkobih.weebly.com/uploads/2/6/0/1/26013700/1867619.jpg?283.
This cartoon relates to popular sovereignty because since the people are the sources of power if they don't vote they can't complain when they have terrible leaders.
The principle that the greater number should exercise greater power.
Examples: Presidential Elections(voting). http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-RkhbVccoCU8/ULa75AFOFdI/AAAAAAAAEdU/enyT0N2ghsk/s1600/Save+the+twinkie.jpg
This cartoon relates to majority rule because there were more people ruling too save the twinkie than save the earth so they're doomed because they had less people.
The Government has limits in order to protect peoples liberty. Example: Writ of Habeas Corpus: the Government cannot keep you in jail if there are no charges against you. http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRMY8JhROTboBslJf2v0_Ge6JJNOTXHH5uGiytZRBbitIVfAbpUrQ:www.whatnowtoons.com/images/limited-government-what-now-308.jpg
This political cartoon relates to limited Government because the governtment cannot let your house burn because you didn't pay your fee.
