By now, you have gained
some insight regarding political ideologies and how they are applied to
American government. Now, you will turn your attention to yourself by
determining your own political philosophy. Many Americans claim that
they belong to a certain party, or follow a certain ideology, without
ever taking the time to figure out if that assessment is really
accurate. For this project, you will want to explain the origins of the
political ideology with which you are aligned. You will then consider
how this ideology impacts you, and discuss its prospects for future
political success. When you consider the origins of the ideology you
chose, you will want to explain when, how, and why you identify with
this particular ideology.
You will want to consider the following questions when writing your essay:
Were you surprised by the political ideology to which you belong? Why or why not?
What are the origins of that political ideology?
are your ideology’s prospects for future political success? Do you
anticipate that the percentage of adults/ registered voters aligned with
the same political ideology as you are likely to increase or decrease
in the near future?
How might this ideological group impact political parties and elections?
Then, you will craft an essay that includes each of the following:
A properly formatted (APA-style) title and reference page;
Parenthetical citations (APA-style), when appropriate;
At least two double-spaced pages in the body of the paper (Times New Roman font/12 point size);
At least three academic sources.
