What were the advantages and limitations of the Twenty-fourth Amendment for advancing the civil rights movement?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

The 24th amendment was important to the Civil Rights Movement as it ended mandatory poll taxes that prevented many African Americans.  Poll taxes, combined with grandfather clauses and intimidation, effectively prevented African Americans from having any sort of political power, especially in the South.  When the 24th amendment passed, five southern states, Virginia, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi still had poll taxes.  Most Southern states, at one time or another had poll taxes and in severe cases, had cumulative poll taxes that required the voter to pay taxes not just from that year, but also previous years they had not voted.

Answers

The answer is: E. It became a military superpower in the world but lacked a strong economy.

During the 20th century, United states more than 20% of its GDP to be allocated into millitary spending, which make us able to become a millitary superpower and contribute greatly to the victories during the world war I.

There is a downside to this. Large allocation to millitary budget means that there would be less that can be allocated to build things such as infrastructures, loans, government sponsored jobs, etc. Which is why the economy of united states at that era was a little bit lacking.

Answer:

b. It was vastly richer, larger, and more powerful than it had been one hundred years before

Why did general Dwight Eisenhower oppose using nuclear weapons in japan?

Answers

Answers

A standing committee is one of sixteen permanent Senate committees.

A joint committee is staffed by both houses.

Special and select committees are temporary and have limited jurisdiction

Explanation:

Without the committee system, the Legislative branch of the government would not be able to deal with all legislation related to the nation itself (such as economy, agriculture, regulation, and the military) and to international affairs. This is why Congress divides its tasks into four types of committees, which at the same time, divide themselves in many sub-committees.

The standing, or permanent, committee is the one that has legislative jurisdiction (It considers and proposes bills, for example). There are twenty standing committees in the House and sixteen in the Senate (Therefore, a standing committee is one of sixteen permanent Senate committees).

The joint committee, which is in charged with exploring and informing certain issues, is staffed by members of both the House and the Senate

Special, ad hoc and select committees are temporary committees and have limited jurisdiction as they can only address specific topics such as to conduct special investigations.

Lastly, conference committees, which are also temporary, is used to reconcile different bills passed in both the House and the Senate.
