Which of the following re-established the silver dollar as a form of currency and committed the U.S. government to the purchase of a certain amount of silver each month for coinage? Bland-Allison Act McKinley Tariff Act Morrill Land Grant Act Sherman Silver Purchase Act

The correct answer is A) Bland-Allison Act.

It benefited the interests of the miners and farmers. Farmers wanted inflation to rise so they could benefit. William Allison -a Republican Senator- and Richard Bland -a Democrat Representative- were the creators of the Act that was vetoed by President Hayes. Congress overrode the veto in February 1878.

8. What was one effect of the Watergate scandal on the nation? A. Most people developed a deeper understanding of the powers of the executive branch. B. Most people began to appreciate the need to vote carefully in every election. C. People questioned the workings of the court system. D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Answer:

D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Explanation:

Although Richard Nixon had several achievements during his term, he is, perhaps, best remembered for being accused of being involved in the Watergate Scandal. Such event was the scandal resulting from the arrest of five burglars in the office of the Democratic National Committee in June 1972 that were connected to President Nixon’s reelection campaign. The burglars had been caught wiretapping phones and stealing documents.

Afterward, the President came to be in trouble with justice for trying to cover the crime and the documents, so, in order to avoid impeachment, he soon decided to resign from office. These events, which were clear proof of the government's corruption, increased American's skepticism about politics and the government.

Requiring a permit in advance to hold an assembly, such as a parade or concert, in a public area C. Searching all the homes within a neighborhood where authorities had found a criminal in hiding D. Allowing no one but police and government officials to be in public spaces after dark

Answer:

B. Requiring a permit in advance to hold an assembly, such as a parade or concert, in public area, is the correct answer.

Explanation:

The first amendment is a good example of restricting individual rights for ensuring that other peoples' rights are respected. The first amendment guarantees the right to freedom of religion, speech, petition, this amendment also provides the government with the right to abrogate the freedom of speech. Although the freedom of speech may appear to be just, an individual's behavior may affect other people. In such cases, the government can make laws for protecting the individual liberty of another person. The government can restrict individual rights as and when necessary. So making it mandatory to have a permit in advance to hold an assembly, such as a parade or concert in a public areas is the correct answer.

QUESTION POSTED AT 18/01/2020 - 07:06 AM

What was one way Progressives wanted to regulate railroads?: - by limiting the fees railroads could charge for carrying freight - by limiting the number of states through which railroads could travel - by determining the wages paid to railroad workers - by determining the amount of taxes the railroads had to pay

The correct answer is by limiting the fees railroads could charge for carrying freight.

Members of the Progressive Party were often in favor of government intervention in the economy. This was especially true for business practices that can be seen as manipulative or harmful to American citizens. To stop this from happening in the railroad industries, Progressives focused on putting a limit on the fees that businesses could charge for carrying freight. The goal of this type of legislation revolves around the idea that limiting the cost of carrying freight would ultimately increase the amount of individuals being able to participate in this transaction.

Which describes a political change in Europe since the 1980s? A. East and West Germany peacefully reunited under a democratic government. B. The republics of the Soviet Union reaffirmed their commitment to communism. C. European nations abandoned their plans for an economic union. D. Yugoslavia ended its civil war and returned to its communist government.

Answer:

The correct answer is A. A political change in Europe since the 1980s was that East and West Germany peacefully reunited under a democratic government.

Explanation:

The term German reunification refers to the political and social changes that occurred during 1989 and 1990 in Germany, which ended in the accession of the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) under the jurisdiction of the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG). The process resulted in only one Germany.

The political and economic reforms promoted by the President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, and the democratic transition in other countries of Eastern Europe had as an indirect consequence the migratory exodus towards the FRG through Czechoslovakia and Hungary, and the subsequent social instability in the GDR. These events forced the resignation of the Politburo of the Unified Socialist Party of Germany, which was later banned. It also encouraged the opening of the borders between the Germanies, which triggered the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989.

After a series of agreements, summits and official visits, and the recognition of the German-Polish border on the Oder-Neisse line, the governments of the United States, the United Kingdom, France and the Soviet Union signed the Treaty Two plus Four, which ruled in favor of reunification. It also validated the Unification Treaty, a legal instrument that authorized the adhesion of the GDR in the FRG according to the Basic Law of Germany on October 3, 1990. Since 1991, that date is celebrated on the Day of German Unity.
