Provide three examples of ways that that political office can function in a unitary manner. Are there also areas in which that office must rely on the other branches of government to achieve its goals. Provide three examples. A unitary executive is someone who acts on his or her own. This term is mostly used for the president in times that the president must make decisions on his own. This is mostly used when Congress does not have time to debate and the president must act quickly and on his own 3 examples of when the president must act on his own 1. FDR’s Lendlys policy - congress did not want to get America to get involved overseas (let them figure it out their own) but FDR wanted to help, so he sent England ships to help them defend the Nazis. 2. The president can appoint the head of the FBI 3. ? 3 examples of the president relying on other branches of government 1. Checks and Balances: the president can nominate someone to be on the supreme court and the Senate can say no because the person is not up to par with how a judge should be 2. Separation of Powers: the president can appoint someone to be a judge on the supreme court, but the Senate must approve of the person 3. ? 5. Explain the significance of the “three-fifths” clause in terms of: (a) representation in the Senate and the House of Representatives; (b) federal taxation responsibilities of the states. a. For the house of representatives, the number of reps each state gets is based upon the population of the said state. For free persons, it is one rep for every 30,000 free people. This is an issue for southern states because they dont have as many free people in the state. Issue because southern states get less representation. Thus came the compromise. For every 5 non-free people, three would be counted in terms of free only for the purpose of how many reps each state could get. i. This does not affect the Senate because the Senators were originally appointed by state officials like the governor. b. Taxation works the same as representation. c. How is the population of the state counted: the number of free persons including those who are bound to service (military), excluding Indians and of all other persons (slaves - the word slave isn't used because Americans do not want to seem as if they condone slavery in their country)

6. How does consent function in the argument made by “The Laws” about whether Socrates should escape from jail? Is this the same role of consent in the Declaration of Independence? Consent is that you are saying yes to something. In terms of laws, it is tacit consent which means that you are consenting through your behavior. You are agreeing to a set of rules without signing something. For example, by enrolling and being at Rutgers, you are agreeing to follow the rules.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
