past, republican ryan's budget offers trickle-down agenda, the same agenda tried during george bush's presidency, which resulted in the widthering of the middle class and the total collapse of the economy. this budget shares in the same failed policies of the past and in a nut shell, it is unrealistic, unreasonable and unfair. first, mr. speaker, while the ryan budget is clear on its harmful proposed cuts to children, education and health care services for seniors, the budget blueprint is particularly light on details and heavy on tax breaks to wealthy americans who do not need the help. second, but of no less importance, the ryan proposal fails to repeal and replace the sequester, therefore doing nothing to prevent the loss of over 700,000 jobs the sequester will cost. by not stopping the sequester and through other budgetary tricks, the ryan budget will cost even deeper cuts to all of our nation's essential services, arranging from the deep cuts for services to women, to head start, and health care research, to homeland security. this lack of foresight will also result in some $800

using a narrative or chronological approach. the massive biography of george washington, for example, discusses the early life of george washington but then moves through washington as he appeared in a series of roles and topical fashion, such as low church men, vestry men or soldier. his primary goal here is to focus on washington's character as it appeared in different situations. but the consequence is to take the man out of time. michael novak and his book on two wings uses a similar strategy when he frames and this is his heading for the substantial section of the book, ten questions about the founding. and david barton's highly influential's wall builder website avoids narrative in favor of narrow topical questions -- question and answers that move seamlessly between different time periods. despite this nonnarrative approach, the key moments in the christian reading of the revolution can be teased out. the story begins with the pilgrims and purtens. the founding of plymouth becomes the first act in the revolutionary war. the narrative then leapfrogs to the americans conflict wi

their attention was george washington. in the early republic, people transferred this capacity to dolley. to them, dolley symbolized the heart of the madison administration but also its true character. in political theory, the charismatic figure is a person who can convey abstract psychological and emotional messages to large groups of people. although the psychological aspect is important to any political either some who say all politics are psychological, it was especially important in the infant early republic. it influenced the way americans felt about how they were ruled and that was key to the survival of the nation. recent scholarship, especially from historians of women's lives and gender has revealed that the early u.s. government and the political culture that is spawned was much more dependent on royal forms of rule than we ever previously thought. the newly liberated columnist turned citizens, it seemed, not only had an appetite for aristocracy, they craved the power they knew. so the founding men, even as they were putting together a new nation along the line of what
