Government in America

Well....What is Government

It is the institutions and processes which public policies are made for a society.


In simple terms... THE IN'S AND OUT'S ON HOW SOCIETAL POLICIES ARE MADE.

WHAT TYPE OF THEORY DOES OUR NATION FALL UNDER?

Besides These Theories...How Else is Government Polices Affected?

Through INTEREST GROUPS (organizations of people with shared policy goals who get together and try to affect government) are a main example of how policies in government are effected.

One of the most successful interest groups in government today is the NRA. Which is an interest group that fights for gun rights and has affected policy in government concerning gun rights many of times.


SINGLE INTEREST GROUPS also affect policies in government. These are a more narrow version of Interest Groups. As Interest Groups can be very broad in their idea of interest, this group has well...you guessed it....one single interest. This is effective because it allows them to gain ALL THE POSSIBLE INFORMATION aimed at this interest in order to put up a very very VERY effective fight.
