To a young learner, the government must seem like it has a thousand moving parts, which it does have, and then some. With the task of keeping America great comes tremendous responsibilities, and tremendous controversies. This volume provides readers with a sequence of essays that provide both sides to several issues surrounding the U.S. government. Readers will evaluate whether Americans are truly cynical of their government, and how religious expression relates to public debate. They will consider whether government bureaucracy is effective, and whether lobbyists have way too much power. They will consider whether courts should have the power of judicial review, and whether the executive power should be reduced. Should states have more power? Should mayors exercise more power? Is the government really for us? Help your readers answer these questions and research the debate.
