Question Description

Help me study for my Political Science class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

The role of human nature in the construction of political

institutions plays an important dynamic in how those political

institutions are created, how they evolve, and how they solve problems.

Many vital political institutions have faced, and are still facing,

complex and multi-faceted challenges.

Responding to these challenges often creates unintended side effects that change the very nature and capabilities of the institution.

For example, the executive institutions of the U.S. government (also known as the Executive Branch) before the Civil War consisted only of the Departments of State, War, and Treasury. However, the nature and capabilities of the Executive Branch of government rapidly changed as a result of the Civil War. Thousands of new employees were added to the federal government, and new departments (e.g., Agriculture) and many new responsibilities were added to the central government.

Write: In your essay of at least three pages, you will investigate the executive institutions of the U.S. government by addressing the following:

  • Describe one historical event that significantly affected the nature and capabilities of the executive institutions of the U.S. government (1 page).
  • Explain how and why this event changed the nature of the Executive Branch (1 page).
  • Explain how and why this event changed the capabilities of the Executive Branch (1 page).

Historical Events that Significantly Affected the Nature and Capabilities of the Executive
Institutions of the U.S. Government
The history of the Constitution of the United States is such that it was written in 1787 at
the Federal Convention and would be espoused in 1788. The Constitution established the three
arms of Government with the Executive being the law enforcing machine, the legislature, having
the congress as the main lawmaker and the Judiciary, comprising of the Supreme Court and
subordinate federal courts hearing and deciding federal matters. The President is the head of the
Executive branch with the powers to implement federal laws, to command the army and the
navy, to veto laws approved by congress as well as supervise foreign relations.
However, the constitution is not exclusively expressive on the powers and duties of the
executive. The duties have therefore over history been evolving, based on both the presidential
interpretation a well as congressional legislation. During the period of the civil war, the
executive saw a tremendous expansion as well as a clear definition of roles as opposed to the
situation that was since the adoption of the federal constitution. The civil war was as a result of
endless debates on the sovereignty of states, and the supremacy of the federal authority (Boyd,
1997).
