    Unformatted Sample Text from the Research Paper:
    while all four of these entities had something significant to do with one another, at the same time they each possessed their own particular arrangement within the wide and varied  scheme of bureaucratic function. Indeed, these elements played an integral role in the establishment of the presidential construction. It can be argued that a country needs the combination  of power and government in order to enact any level of politics; however, it can also be contended that there does not necessarily have to exist any sort of democratic  considerations as a means by which to operate that government. This specific point speaks to the concept of power and authoritarianism, rather than that of power and democracy as  was desired in the United States of America. The factors most important in the determination of presidential power were threefold: personalities, the concept  of balance of powers and political forces. Some have contended that the concept of balance of powers was completely misconstrued, compelling the political alterations that ultimately took place; however,  still others believe that a combination of personalities and political forces proved to undermine the existence of presidential power. "The merchants, landowners, manufacturers, shippers and bankers were given what  they wanted...namely a government which would stabilize the money and trade, keep order within the country and defend the nation against foreign enemies" (Anonymous 327-28).  Autocratic dictatorships were not what the countrys founders had envisioned for Americas people. Creating a government that was for the people and by the people is what  was going to promote both individual and political strength. The decision-making process was to be a combined effort of government officials and the people who elected them into office.
