I had the same question, and this is what i found on wikipedia, i know that it's not the most dependable resource, but GET OVER IT! Progressives moved to enable the citizenry to rule more directly and circumvent political bosses; California, Wisconsin, and Oregon took the lead. California governor H…iram Johnsonestablished the initiative, referendum, and recall, viewing them as good influences for citizen participation against the historic influence of large corporations on state assembly including job reform.  About 16 states began using primary elections to reduce the power of bosses and machines.  The Seventeenth Amendment was ratified in 1913, requiring that all senators be elected by the people (instead of the state legislature). (MORE)

Theodore Roosevelt's program of Progressive reforms was known asthe Square Deal. His third party was called Bull Moose Party.
Some states did it that way right from the beginning.. By 1828 only South Carolina and Delaware let their State Legislatures choose the electors. From 1832 Delaware went over to popular election, but SC did not do so till after the Civil War.
Theodore Roosevelt served almost two full terms as US President (1901-1909). He became President due to the assassination of his President, William McKinley.
Major Domestic Policy: Roosevelt's main issue during his term was coping with the Great Depression. In fact, he won presidency due to his "stop the depression" campaign. His ideas of relief, recovery, and reform were then put into play through the Neal Deal that helped end the Great Depression. Roo…sevelt was strongly for the prevention of starving people, which he promised the government would do all it could to prevent. In hopes of ending the depression, the Democratic platform pledged for the repeal of the prohibition, a descending modification of the tariff, help for the farmers, and in order to prevent scams in the stocks, they wanted stock exchange reforms. After a few days in office, Roosevelt created the Emergency Banking Relief Act, which allowed for all banks to have a brief shut down accommodating the Federal Reserve System. All of the banks would be vividly checked, and then reopened them once they are able to pay their own debts and survive. Then Congress passed the Federal Securities Act in 1933, which improved the security exchange by all stocks and bonds that were being put up for sale had to also have a truthful information about the company it's being sold from. Then the Federal Trade Commission was then taken over by the Securities and Exchange Commission in 1934. In 1933, America entirely gave up the gold standard and all contracts that stated they needed to be paid in gold were void. Then the Glass-Stegall Act was passed and the Banking Act of 1935 which gave more power to the Federal Reserve Board allowing them to create the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The job of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was formed to assure all of bank deposits. Roosevelt also sought towards relief in unemployment, farming problems, and indebt businesses. To help aid the unemployment, the program known as the Works Progress Administration was formed in 1935 and was then further divided into the National Youth Administration, Civilian Conservation Corps and the Public Works Administration. The Public Works administration recruited any people willing to aid and helped communities by building schools, painting pictures and created music. In order to make an influx of money into the economy, the Civilian Conservation Corps was established and helped lower the rate of unemployment. All over the CCC camps were created in order to give more youth jobs and also help the outdoors in national parks. The employees were paid $30 a month and allowed for the parents to have $22 sent home, and at the same time it also promoted business. Three years after the creation of the establishment of the Civilian Conservation Corps, the National Youth Administration was formed in order to help those around the ages of 16 to 25 who were in hopes of continuing their education. The National Youth Administration created more job opportunities for this certain age group such as typists and secretaries. In order to help the farmers, the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 paid farmers to cultivate their land. The money for this act came from the tax that was put upon agricultural business transactions. The AAA was then declared unconstitutional because of the fact that they were taxing. Roosevelt also worked towards helping businesses by establishing the National Industrial Recovery Act in 1933. This act enforced fair trade codes, but was then declared as unconstitutional because of the fact that it tried to control interstate commerce. Roosevelt was very perturbed when the Supreme Court had declared the NIRA and the AAA unconstitutional and then referred to the judges as the Nine Old Men. Resulting from this, Roosevelt wanted to enlarge the amount of justices to 15 in hopes of appointing more liberal candidates. The Supreme Court declared this action as unconstitutional and since they realized the reasoning to his idea. In the next four years, seven judges resigned allowing Roosevelt to be able to appoint new justices, hence he won his battle. Roosevelt's programs did help end the Great Depression, but the real help was the war in 1941 when business reorganized for World War II. Major Foreign Policy: The Great Depression was occurring all across the world. Adolph Hitler was elected Chancellor of Germany after a few months that Roosevelt had been elected. He aimed towards a more radical approach. At the same time the Japanese were in need for new resources and sought to attack Manchuria and other areas of China. The United States still kept the ideas of neutrality even when Hitler came to power. The United States government wanted to stay out of World War II and went to the extent of passing Neutrality Acts every year from 1935 to 1937, which restricted the amount of trade with the nations involved with the war. Then the Japanese became more and more violent. Then the U.S. gunship Panay was attacked, but the United States did nothing about the issue. The United States only acted by building up the navy once Japan rejected the Five Power Act of the Washington Conference. The United States broke it's idea of neutrality when the Neutrality Act of 1939 or otherwise known as Cash and Carry Act was passed and lifted all embargoes, which allowed all British and French ships to fill the American ports. Britain had then used up all of its cash in 1941, hence the Lend-Lease Act was passed, which allowed Roosevelt to "sell, transfer title to, exchange, lease, lend, or otherwise dispose of" goods such as weapons like warships and destroyers to nations that would help the security of the United States. Before the brink of the United States entering World War II, the United States signed the Atlantic Charter with Winston Churchill, which stated the war intentions and created the make up for the United Nations organization. On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and the United States then entered World War II with the Axis Powers. The United States began island hopping in the Pacific in order to slowly reach Japan. Under the leaderships of General Eisenhower in Africa , troops dominated the Germans. Once the long battle in Europe was done, Germany was then entirely defeated. The War had lasted four years and resulted with 322,000 Americans being killed, 676,000 were wounded, and 124,000 were captured. The aim for peace had begun during the War at the time of 1943 when the Moscow Conference was held due to the Russians and the Allies winning. This conference brought upon the issue of the need for a peace association. At the end of the Conference, the idea of a peace association was adopted with an 85 to 5 vote. Conferences, such as the Teheran Conference of 1943, Dumbarton Oaks of 1944 and the San Francisco Conference of 1945 were then established in order to generate a peaceful association. The agreement for the United Nations was then signed in San Francisco by up to 50 nations. Major Supreme Court Decisions: â¢ U.S. v. Butler (1935)-Declared the AAA unconstitutional because of it over use of power. â¢ Schechter v. U.S. (1936)-Held that the National Industrial Recovery Act was unconstitutional due to the fact that it gave legislative power to the executive branch. â¢ Korematsu v. United States (1944)-Held that the Executive Order 9066 was unconstitutional and freed the Japanese-Americans that were placed in camps. â¢ Ex parte Endo (1944)-The Court held that the confining of Japanese-American's was unconstitutional. Intellectual and Social Developments: â¢ The New Deal was formed in order to regain a stable economy created government intervention in the economy and social welfare came about. â¢ Roosevelt's Good Neighbor Policy toward Latin America was enacted in 1933. â¢ The United States stated they wanted neutrality in attempts to avoid World War II. â¢ The Arts came more abundant as culture rose and people looked toward consumer goods for self-fulfillment. â¢ In the 1940's the United States government began to organize itself for war by enhancing production of goods. â¢ The United States entered World War II in 1941. â¢ Rural whites and blacks began to move into the cities in order to obtain war jobs. â¢ The film industry aimed towards aiding the war effort to bring up morale and get citizens of the United States more patriotism. â¢ The Allies defeated the Axis powers as a result of the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. â¢ The war mobilization ended the Great Depression due to the mass production of goods. â¢ The Civil Rights movement was revived as blacks wanted equal treatment as whites.

How would you describe the role played by the Supreme Court during President FD Roosevelt's terms in office?
President Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected to four terms of office, and had two substantially different sets of US Supreme Court justices to deal with. From 1933 to 1937, Roosevelt faced a conservative and obstructionist Court that repeatedly declared his New Deal programs unconstitutional. The …Court finally began supporting more progressive, labor-oriented legislation in 1937. West Coast Hotel v. Parrish, (1937) is considered the Court's turning point (or point of surrender). Due to the death or retirement of eight justices, Roosevelt managed to construct a new, liberal court between 1937 and 1941. These justices were more favorable toward his administration's "radical" labor and economic policies. (MORE)

FDR's 100 days of lawmaking is more commonly known as the New Deal. The programs were in response to America's crippled position as a result of the Depression. Some of the most common initiatives he started was the Emergency Banking Act which closed all banks and reopened sound ones with help from …the federal government. The Economy Act cut the spending budget of the federal government by reducing the salaries to government employees and cutting veteran benefits. The Farm Security Act created higher incomes for many farmers so they could make a living in agriculture. The Agricultural Adjustment Act sought to raise prices for commodities through artificial scarcity. The National Industrial Recovery Act protected the salaries of factory workers.

Nobody expected much from Chester A. Arthur. Although by all accounts a decent human being, he came to the presidency suddenly, when President Garfield was assassinated; up to that point, he had been known as a New York politician who helped Republican party loyalists and friends of his to get jobs …in the government. So it was quite a surprise when he took office in 1881 that he began a campaign to get rid of corruption in government. In fact, to everyone's surprise (and to the annoyance of people who expected he would help them get political patronage jobs), he became a passionate reformer, making positive changes in the Civil Service system. He made some enemies as a result, but he seemed determined to make a positive difference during his time as president. Arthur championed a tough immigration law that excluded anyone with mental illness or those who could not take care of themselves; but he also vetoed a bill that would have excluded Chinese immigrants from coming to the US; later, congress succeeded in passing a compromise version of the bill, and Chinese immigration was limited. And as a result of certain controversial Mormon practices in the Utah Territories, he signed a bill that made polygamy a federal crime. Arthur also reformed and helped to re-energize the U.S. Navy.

That's actually a good question. The romance of her husband being an astronaut and her a political figure is what keeps drawing the focus not her actual accomlishments.

When you first make contact with a certain doctor, this person does not know you. The initial office visit simply means your first time meeting your doctor, and these are some of the things you might want to think about, and/or bring with you, if you have them. Past medical history. (When you w…ere a child, did you have any signifgent illness or surgery? Do you know of any definite illness you have now, and who diagnosed it, and when? Do you have children, how did you give birth (C-section? etc)) Everything and anything you can think of that you have been told you have, or a past doctor or nurse was concerned about with you, should be told to your new doctor on this first visit, The longer and more specific your list of your "PMA" (Past Medical History), the more effectively the doctor can treat you. Any allergies at all, even if you took a medication one time, and it did something to you that it was not supposed to. BE HONEST about any alcohol or drug use or past use or abuse, it is quite common now for doctors to learn of their patients having this "disease" (alcoholism, addiction, gambling, etc) The Doctor is NOT there to judge you, and if you FEEL judged, leave the office and find another doctor. The Doctor will have you sign "release of medical information" to any past places you have been treated at, including emergency rooms and clinics. Again the more info the doctor has on you, the better they can make decisions on how to treat you. This "initial visit" is a chance for you and your doctor to get to know each other a bit. Do not be afraid to ask questions about where they went to school, what their feelings on specific issues are, such as abortion, addiction, etc Hope this helps! (MORE)

I know of three ways that a U.S. President can be legally removed from office in the midst of his/her term: . Someone convinces him/her to resign. . The U.S. House of Representatives presents grounds for the impeachment of the President, and at least two thirds of the U.S. Senate assembled find …him/her guilty in an impeachment trial. . The Vice President and a majority of the President's Cabinet communicate in writing to the Speaker of the House and the President pro tempore of the Senate that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of the presidency. If the President communicates in writing to the Speaker of the House and the President pro tempore of the Senate that no inability exists, within four days the Vice President and a majority of the President's Cabinet again communicate in writing to the Speaker of the House and the President pro tempore of the Senate that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of the presidency. Then if within 21 days, or 23 days if Congress was not in session, at least two thirds of each house of Congress agree by vote with the declaration of the Vice President and a majority of the Cabinet, the Vice President continues on as Acting President.
