Democracy is where the majority gets together to vote to plunder the minority. Having a democratic government is where everyone has a voice under the strict lawful guidelines of a republic. "Making the world safe for democracy" has been the calling card of the new world order now for 50+ years. Demo…cracy does NOT equal freedom. To promote freedom you have to defend for others the rights you wish to have defended for all. As soon as the poor figure out that they can "vote" themselves money from the public's largess those will be the only votes cast. History teaches that this process, from unfettered freedom to abject slavery takes less than 200 years. And as soon as the criminals figure out how to make the laws work for them, they do also.

He ignored any complaints from the Indians as well as from their advocates ,who were mostly from the NE states who had long ago driven their Indians out, or dispersed them to small groups of harmless villages.
In the decades surrounding the presidency of Andrew Jackson democracy began to expand. States rewrote constitutions and extended the franchise to all free white males. European visitors such as Alexis de Tocqueville noticed the spirit of equality that pervaded the United States, unlike anything know…n in the Old World. (Not all Europeans, nor Americans, for that matter, were sure that was a good idea-terms like "mobocracy" and "anarchy" were thrown around from time to time.) By the late 1830s, the United States had become a full democracy for adult white males, but inequalities still existed: poor people were still poor, and while wealth may not have bought votes directly, it certainly was a prerequisite for any kind of real power. What was different about America was not that the gap between rich and poor had narrowed-indeed, the opposite was probably true--but that there were few systemic barriers (except for slavery) that prevented people from gaining wealth and power. However limited, the idea of America as a land of unprecedented opportunity was not inaccurate in the context of the times. Importantly, equality of opportunity did not necessarily mean equality of result, a concept with which Americans continue to wrestle in making political choices. ( Full Answer )
Seeing as Jackson had a TON of kids, it is hard to trace his genealogy. There are several possible connections. One, making them cousins, twice removed, is the most likely. However, the only Thomas Jackson (Stonewall's real name) in Andrew Jackson's direct family was his great grandson, a man of Ire…land. While it is unlikely that there is any relation, we'll probably never know. I suppose that means you can say he was, but bear in mind it would be a very thin connection. ( Full Answer )
Andrew Jackson, who assumed the presidency as party politics were becoming more polarized, found himself labeled as nothing short of a dictator by his Democratic Party's opposition, the Whigs. Unlike previous presidents, Jackson used his popularity and power as president to fill his cabinet with loy…al Democratic followers. Jackson did not consult Congress in policymaking and used his power of the veto to assume control of the national government. As a result, many of Jackson's detractors and the political cartoonists of the day labeled Jackson "King Andrew." Whig leaders, such as Henry Clay and Daniel Webster, claimed that Jackson was more of an authoritarian and bully than a balanced president, often citing his relentless use of veto power. In 1832, Jackson vetoed the bill to recharter the controversial Second Bank of the United States, claiming, "The bank is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!" Jackson vetoed bills for political reasons, or simply because he disliked them, thus rejecting the tradition originated by George Washington that vetoes were rarely to be exercised by presidents in a republic. During his two terms in office, Washington used the veto power just twice; Jackson used it twelve times, more than all of his predecessors combined. ( Full Answer )

Andrew Jackson was the 7th president of the United States. He was self-educated, lost the election of 1824 to John Quincy Adams, and won the election of 1828.

Elections promote democracy because the people are electing a representative to represent their constituency and themselves in the house of parliament. This is democratic as it gives a voice to the people as they elect someone to represent their views and interests in order to have an impact on gove…rnment and how the country is run. As well as this elections return sovereignty to the people, the people are given control over who governs them. Voting in elections gives the voter the opportunity to change the current government if they do not feel as it has performed well enough. Elections also promote political participation as they are a form of direct democracy. This means that it encourages citizens to be involved in politics without joining a party or pressure group.

The undisputed no.1 promoter is , of course, the US. Unfortunately, the endless declarations of the love of freedom and democracy are only words. I cannot think of a single example of the US promoting genuine democracy anywhere where its strategic and economic interests lie, which covers most of the… world. It is a case of " Democracy is fine, as long as you do as we say." Much more effort goes into maintaining the illusion of real democracy than actually promoting it, and the line between the two is very blurred. Supporting brutal dictators is a much better way of securing access to cheap resourses, and there is no need here to detail the US's long history of doing just that. The events in Egypt are a telling example of the double standards. When the riots started, the Obama administration remained silent, until it became obvious that Mubarak had to go. Then they denounced him as a tyrant and praised the people for having the courage to demand their freedom and democracy, erasing history in the process, such as the 30 years of military , diplomatic, and financial support for the regime. The hypocricy is truly breathtaking. ( Full Answer )
The movement created by Jackson on his election was an authentic democratic movement dedicated to powerful, radical, egalitarian ideals for white men. Its origins go back to the 1700's, the anti federalists of the 1780's and the 1790's, and from the Jeffersonian Republicans. Another cause was also o…ut of social and economic changes of the early 19th century. There was also a tendency to remain with the 18th century elitist assumptions of the natural aristocracy of propertied men as well as the starting of the 19th century capitalism of corporation's, banks, and other moneyed investments to become the new rich. This lead to the government policy of favoring centralized top down forms of economic development that aided men of means but deepened the inequality of others without the money. A redirection of economic policy resulted and reformers fought to abolish property requirements for voting and office holding. His basic policy was to rid the government of class bias and dismantle the top down credit driven engines of the market revolution. His war on the Second Bank of the United States set the tone. This was an effort to remove the few wealthy unelected private bankers from the nation's economy. To aide the farmer the government began a program of Indian removal from lands that could be sold and gave settler's preemption rights. The ideology was aimed at the voters who felt harmed or cut off from the new markets and proclaimed a political culture predicated on white male equality and had a social vision that any white man would have a chance to secure his economic independence, live free as he saw fit, and live under a system of government cleansed of privilege.

The Role of the Citizen in A Democracy The key role of citizens in a democracy is to participate in public life. Citizens have an obligation to become informed about public issues, to watch carefully how their political leaders and representatives use their powers, and to express their own opi…nions and interests. Voting in elections is another important civic duty of all citizens. But to vote wisely, each citizen should listen to the views of the different parties and candidates, and then make his or her own decision on whom to support. Participation can also involve campaigning for a political party or candidate, standing as a candidate for political office, debating public issues, attending community meetings, petitioning the government, and even protesting. A vital form of participation comes through active membership in independent, non-governmental organizations, what we call "civil society." These organizations represent a variety of interests and beliefs: farmers, workers, doctors, teachers, business owners, religious believers, women, students, human rights activists. It is important that women participate fully both in politics and in civil society. This requires efforts by civil society organizations to educate women about their democratic rights and responsibilities, improve their political skills, represent their common interests, and involve them in political life. In a democracy, participation in civic groups should be voluntary. No one should be forced to join an organization against their will. Political parties are vital organizations in a democracy, and democracy is stronger when citizens become active members of political parties. However, no one should support a political party because he is pressured or threatened by others. In a democracy, citizens are free to choose which party to support. Democracy depends on citizen participation in all these ways. But participation must be peaceful, respectful of the law, and tolerant of the different views of other groups and individuals. .

Socialism can promote democracy, but it ultimately depends on the type of socialism we are talking about. Traditionally, socialism promoted economic democracy, which means equal power relations and collective-decision making in the workplace. This may have taken the form of direct democracy on th…e part of each worker, or it might have meant democratically electing management. This type of democracy is still promoted by modern day market socialists and advocates of decentralized planned economies. If we are talking about the type of socialism that existed in the Soviet Union and "Communist states", then many political scientists would say no, this type of socialism did not promote democracy. The Soviet Union had a command economy, where decisions were made in a hierarchical chain-of-command. Ironically, the Soviet model of "socialism" was inspired by capitalist management practices known as Taylorism and scientific management. ( Full Answer )
