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.

Answer:

A.  Suburban life increased employment opportunities for women.

During the late 1950s, the American scene changed radically. Since the late nineteenth century, Americans, just as outsiders, had rushed to American urban areas looking for production line work. In the after war period, be that as it may, that pattern was turned around: gratitude to low lodging expenses and GI Bill benefits, notwithstanding average workers Americans could stand to possess homes in suburbia.

The two Supreme Court cases, Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education, addressed which of these issues? A. freedom of speech under the 1st Amendment B. equal protection under the 14th Amendment C. due process under the 5th Amendment D. probable cause under the 4th Amendment

Correct answer:

B. equal protection under the 14th Amendment

Historical background/details:

In the decades after the Civil War, states in the South began to pass laws that sought to keep white and black society separate.  In the 1880s, a number of  state legislatures began to pass laws requiring railroads to provide separate cars for passengers who were black.  At the heart of the case that became Plessy v. Ferguson was an 1890 law passed in Louisiana in 1890 that required railroads to provide "separate railway carriages for the white and colored races.”

In 1892, Homer Plessy, who was 1/8 black, bought a first class train railroad ticket, took a seat in the whites only section, and then informed the conductor that he was part black.  He was removed from the train and jailed.  He argued for his civil rights before Judge John Howard Ferguson and was found guilty.  His case went all the way to the Supreme Court which at that time upheld the idea of "separate but equal" facilities.

Several decades later, the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson decision was overturned.  Brown v. Board of Education, decided by the US Supreme Court in 1954, extended civil liberties to all Americans in regard to access to education. The "separate but equal" principle of Plessy v. Ferguson had been applied to education as it had been to transportation. In Topeka, Kansas, Oliver Brown filed a lawsuit after the public school district refused to enroll his daughter in the school closest to their home, making her instead take a bus to a blacks-only school.  Other families joined the Brown family lawsuit.  When it went to the level of the Supreme Court, there were other cases from other parts of the country that the Supreme Court combined with it.  The full name of the case at the Supreme Court level was Oliver Brown, et al. v. Board of Education of Topeka, et al.  The arguments were heard before the Supreme Court in 1952 and 1953, and the Brown v. Board of Education decision was issued  in 1954.   The standard of "separate but equal" was challenged and defeated. Segregation was shown to create inequality, and the Supreme Court unanimously ruled segregation to be unconstitutional.

The 14th Amendment was being violated by states whose laws supported the segregation of schools.  Section 1 of the 14th Amendment reads as follows:

  • All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Which statement describing the Watergate scandal is not correct? A. Nixon used government agencies in illegal ways against people he considered his enemies. B. The press refused to cover the scandal out of respect for President Nixon. C. Nixon tried to cover up the crimes committed by people in his administration. D. Facing impeachment, President Nixon chose to resign from office.

The answer that is NOT correct:  B. The press refused to cover the scandal out of respect for President Nixon.

Context/detail:

"Watergate" refers to efforts by persons working for President Nixon's reelection campaign to spy on their opponents at Democratic party headquarters, and subsequent efforts to cover up those crimes.

The first break-in attempt by burglars working on Nixon's behalf occurred  in May, 1972, as persons connected to the Nixon reelection campaign broke into the Democratic National Committee office in the Watergate complex of buildings in Washington, DC.  They were planting wire-taps on the Democrats' phone lines, and also stole copies of documents.  When the wire-taps didn't work properly, they broke in again (in June) to try to fix the surveillance devices, but they were caught.

The formation of the "plumbers" actually preceded Watergate.  They were a "special investigations" unit that the Nixon White House had set up in 1971 to stop the leaking of classified information.  Members of this group were those then later involved in the Watergate break-in (among other activities).

An insider at the FBI who remained anonymous at the time, known only as "Deep Throat," began to give information concerning Watergate to reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post. The Watergate scandal was not kept out of the press; indeed, it was the persistent investigative reporting by Woodward and Bernstein that brought the scandal to light and forced Congressional hearings.   (Note:  Years later it was revealed that Deep Throat was Mark Felt, who at the time was Associate Director of the FBI.)

Nixon's role in Watergate was especially in his efforts and those of members of his staff to cover up what had happened.  Ultimately, the Watergate affair brought down the Nixon presidency.  He resigned in order to avoid impeachment.  And the whole affair made Americans more distrusting of government.
