Explain the events of the "Court Packing" scandal of the Roosevelt Administration. Was it unconstitutional?
In the 1930s, in an effort to stop the Supreme Court from striking down key aspects of his New Deal legislation, Franklin Roosevelt attempted to increase the number of justices from 9 to 13, preferably with ones favorable to his policy. Yes, this is totally constitutional, as there is no set number of justices in the constitution. However, this was such an obvious power grab attempt, that it was quickly halted by many Republicans. This highlights the presence of partisan politics even in an institution designed to remain insulated from it.
What events/policies, specifically by the British empire, lead to a growing sense of independence and eventually helped spur the American Revolution?
For one, as a small island nation governing the world's largest colonial empire, Great Britain was fairly lax in their enforcement of laws with the American Colonies. This policy was known as "Salutary Neglect," and is evidenced by the Americas' ability to make their own laws, and generally held fewer restrictions on voting. Additionally, Britain's tax policy, designed to help increase revenues after the costly Seven Years War, placed a heavy, and seemingly unfair burden on the American Colonies. This lead to growing resentment and, in some cases, political activism, such as the formation of the Stamp Act Congress in the 1760s.
