Prepare: Prior to beginning work on this week’s journal, read chapters 8, 9, and 10 in American Government(see attached file on chapters), watch the video, Episode II - It’s a Free Country (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and review your results from the Political Typology Quiz. (see attached file my results)
Reflect: Political parties mobilize voters to win elections and implement policy goals. Parties use their stated policy goals (i.e., their platforms) as a way to mobilize voter support. Generally, in order to be successful in a two-party system, parties must have policy goals across a broad range of issue areas to appeal to a broad range of voters.
Write: Think about a specific issue or policy that you are interested in and/or that has impacted you personally. Use the assigned resources that are provided for this journal to gather information about the goals and proposals, in that issue area, of three U.S. political parties – the Democratic and Republican parties and a third party. For the journal, write about the following two ideas: Where do the three political parties (Republican, Democrat, and your choice of a third party) currently stand on this issue? Do they have national support? Explain your rationale.
Thinking about your own Political Ideology that we discussed in the introduction discussion(see attached file my results), which party’s stance on the issue you selected is closest to your own? Which is the furthest from your ideals? Why?
(See attached file Political Typology on the other political stance, I really don’t know which one would be closest or the furthest)
For example, if you are a “Steadfast Conservative,” what do the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, and a third party have to say about your position on taxation? If you are a “Solid Liberal,” what do Democrats, Republicans, and a third party say about your views on environmental issues? Who is the closest? Furthest away? Why?
