Only thirty-three of the more than 11,000 amendments that have been proposed have been approved by Congress and submitted to states. Twenty-seven have been ratified. Nevertheless, the Constitution is an unfinished work that has evolved through less formal methods of change-congressional legislation, presidential actions, judicial review, custom and use.

Explains that without government, people live in a state of anarchy. The civil liberties imbedded in the Bill of Rights place specific limitations on governmental power. For example, the basic rights addressed in the first amendment-freedoms of religion, speech, press, and assembly-cannot be abridged or taken away. But the Bill of Rights, like the rest of the Constitution is relatively brief. Broad guidelines are set forth in the language of the Constitution, but it is the courts that apply this language to specific situations.

The United States has one of the highest violent crime rates in the world. It is not surprising, therefore, that many citizens have strong opinions about the rights of the accused. When a person charged with a crime is set free because of a legal "technicality," some people feel that the rights of the accused are being given greater weight than the rights of society and victims of crime. At the basis this discussion are the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Eighth Amendments of the Constitution-amendments that specifically address the rights of criminal defendants.

When these words from the Declaration were written in 1776, the term "men" did not include slaves, Native Americans, men without property. or women. It has taken this nation over two hundred years to strengthen and to expand constitutional guarantees of equality to all persons in our society, a struggle that still continues.

The United States is a country marked by divergent political views. Political attitudes formed early in life seldom change dramatically, however the basic framework is etched and refined by life experiences. The Vietnam War in the sixties, the Watergate scandal in the seventies, reaction to the impeachment of President Clinton reflect the powerful role public opinion plays in the politics of this country. In fact, the scientific measurement of public opinion has become a permanent fixture of the political scene.

Americans attach great significance to the right to vote. But the privilege of voting, so basic to democratic government, is a right that took many Americans centuries to achieve. In comparison to many nations in the world, voter participation in the United States is declining. Studies show a relationship between voting and a person's age, education, and economic status. In addition to voting, citizens participate in the political process through community and campaign activities, and by participating in social movements and protests

Discusses the patterns of party politics in the United States provide a fascinating platform from which to view American political history. Divergent interests, seeking to strengthen their voice, join with others in creating a common political agenda, often under the Republican or Democrat banner. In recent years, as the two major parties have become more narrowly defined, many political moderates feel they've lost their political home. Third party ventures tend to work to only a limited degree because of the electoral system. They can play a major role in influencing the outcome of an election, as was apparent in the 2000 presidential election, but they seldom elect their candidates to public office.

Alexis de Tocqueville observed in 1834 that "no country of the world has the principles of association been more successfully used or applied to a greater multitude of objectives than in America." The degree to which Americans form groups to solve civic problems and lobby for their economic or political interests is unique among the nations of the world. The structure of government, particularly at the local level, invites public participation. The system has many points of access or places in the decision-making process where interest groups, including big business, may make their opinion known.

AMER GOV 13-THE FOURTH ESTATE
100143 - DVD, H, 27, 2001
Points out that on a daily basis, more Americans connect to politics through the news media than through the activities of parties or groups. The press brings events and problems into public view, serves as a channel through which political leaders can address the public, and scrutinizes political behavior for evidence of deceitful, careless, or corrupt acts. The increasing tendency of the media to probe into all aspects of a politician's life, private as well as public, has made many officials less candid and forthcoming with the American public. However, the press cannot do the job of political institutions, even though increasingly it tries to do so.

Explains that the founders of the American republic believed that the bulk of power exercised by a national government should be in the hands of the legislature. Article I of the Constitution is both highly specific and vague about the powers Congress may exercise. This episode follows three current and past members of Congress through the election process and their early days in office. It examines the differences between the ways the Senate and House of Representatives operate, the every-ten-year redistricting process, and the challenges congressional members face not only in the halls of Congress but in maintaining close ties to their home districts.

Most of the actual work of legislating is performed by the committees and subcommittees within Congress. This division of legislative labor has emerged as a means of responding to the profusion of bills introduced each congressional term. Such an approach also allows members to gain expertise in particular aspects of governmental activity. This episode explores the committee structure and formal leadership of Congress, and various routes bills may take before being enacted into law. Members of Congress talk candidly about factors that influence their vote.

The writers of the Constitution had a basic idea of what they wanted in a president: a national leader who would carry out the law of the land, a statesman who could negotiate with world powers, a commander-in-chief in times of conflict. But they had no models to follow, and the vague words they used to describe the position in in Article II, Section I, of the Constitution left a lot of questions unanswered. This episode explores the foundations of the modern presidency, and takes viewers from the campaign for nomination to staffing the executive branch of government. It features political observers as well as those who have occupied positions of authority in recent administrations

AMERICAN GOVERNMENT 17-LEADER FOR THE NATION
100147 - DVD, H, 27, 2001
Shows how the presidency operates within a system of separate institutions that share power. Without congressional authorization and funding, most presidential proposals are nothing but ideas, empty of action. Theodore Roosevelt longed to "be the president and Congress, too" if only for a day, so that he would have the power to adopt as well as propose programs. Whether a president's initiatives are likely to succeed or fail depends on several factors, including the force of circumstance, the stage of the president's term, the president's support in Congress, and the level of public support for the president's leadership.

Although agencies are subject to scrutiny by the president, Congress, and the judiciary, bureaucrats are able to achieve power in their own right. They often develop an "agency point of view" because of their expert knowledge, support from clientele groups, and backing by Congress or the president. This episode, featuring among others former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich and former Secretary of State James Baker, depicts the nature of the federal bureaucracy and the politics that surrounds it.

The story of America's deadliest conflict is told in two programs that offer fresh perspectives. Holidays are hard to celebrate during a time of war, but Independence Day 1863 saw the end of one of the greatest battles of the Civil War, and soldiers and their families still found time to mark the Christmas season and hope that peace would bring them back together again. Many Americans take for granted that Christmas is a federal holiday, but how did this religious event become a national one? The answer takes us back to the time of the Civil War. In fact, the modern-day notion of Christmas has its roots in a time when America was at war with itself.
