Question:

How do the powers of the President of the United States compare to that of other presidents around the world?

Inactive

Answer:

Compared to other republics, the President of the United States actually has less overall power than most other presidents ( POTUS does not have the ability to line-item veto, for example). Most of the power that the founding fathers granted to the government was expressly granted to Congress and the state governments. This was to ensure that the states would have proper representation, and that ideas would be fully explored and debated before being passed into law

Question:

How important is 'likability' versus a candidate's policy positions to voters during a campaign season?

Inactive

Answer:

For candidates, 'likability' or relatability remains a key factor in gaining the support of all but the most diehard party supporters. Being able to relate to people shows that you take their concerns seriously, and builds trust between the candidate and their supporters. Policies are another necessity, and they might be a harder driving force for single issue voters (immigration, the economy, etc.).

Question:

What factors can best explain the reluctance of the Southern states to outlaw slavery in the years prior to the US Civil War?

Answer:

It is my belief that one reason that the leaders of the Southern states fought so hard to defend slavery was because of fear. At the time, the South only had 9 million people total, half of whom were black and/or enslaved. Many in the south at the time understood full well that slavery was a cruel injustice, but they were afraid that if the Union were to outlaw slavery and grant newly freed slaves their rightful constitutional liberties (including the right to bear arms) that this would fan the flames of a "black uprising" or armed rebellion of free men who are outraged that they were denied their freedom for so long.
