Questions For My Teacher

1. Why do the ones in the federal government pass bills on how much they should earn?

2. Can the President veto bills as many times he wants to?

3. What happens if most of the people in the United States start acting up against the government?

4. Are there other parties in the U.S. who are growing, and may be a competitor to the two major parties?

5. Is there a tendency to undermine women in the political system in the U.S., because you see men as Presidents with their so-called "First Lady"?

Great questions!

I'll answer the easiest first:

2) "The President has the power either to sign legislation into law or to veto bills enacted by Congress, although Congress may override a veto with a two-thirds vote of both houses."(http://www.whitehouse.gov/our-government/executive-branch)

4) The Green party used to be the third largest party in the USA, but after the election in 2012, the Libertarian Party took this position - You can read more about this here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarian_Party_(United_States) In 2009 The Tea Party Movement emerged as an important part of the Republican party (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_Party_movement) However, due to the election system voting for smaller parties is reckoned to be vasted. Read more about this in your text book.

5) I would say yes due to the fact that there are only 102 women/19,1% in Congress today. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_the_United_States_House_of_Representatives) Why it is like this is an interesting question...

3) This is a question nobody can answer, but discuss yes. The closest the Americans have come to a revolution today, would probably be the protests in connection with the recession - the Occupy Wall Street movement which spread to 70 cities across the country in addition to countries around the world - but as you know the protesters were removed from the park in New York, and "On December 29, 2012, Naomi Wolf of The Guardian newspaper provided U.S. government documents which revealed that the FBI and DHS had monitored Occupy Wall Street through its Joint Terrorism Task Force, despite labeling it a peaceful movement." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupy_Wall_Street) So, I guess the US government have a plan as to how to deal with protesters.

1) I'll talk to you about this
