Answer the question below in no more than one single-spaced page in font no smaller than 10. All of the information you use to answer the question should come from the books, lecture, discussion sections, and the two links below. Do not use any other sources. No citations are necessary.

If you could wave a magic wand and change the United States from a presidential system to a parliamentary system, would you do it? If you wouldn’t do it, why do you think we should stay with our presidential system? If you would do it, why do you think we should switch to a parliamentary system? Regardless of which system you think we should go with, give at least two reasons for your choice. You can answer this part of the question using just course material, but your answer might be richer if you consider the two short articles linked below.

For the last part of the paper, which is the most difficult part and also that part that gives you the most freedom in crafting your answer, consider how America would be different in two of the following four ways if we did change to a Parliamentary system. You may not necessarily find the answer to any of these ways clearly spelled out in the books or lecture. You may need to use what the books and lectures say (and the two links above) to reason your way to your answer.

1.How would elections be different in American if we had a parliamentary system?

2.How would the nation’s response to COVID-19 been different under a parliamentary system?

3.How would the nation’s struggle for equal rights (civil rights) been different under a parliamentary system?

4.How would the powers of the president (or prime minister if we choose to call our executive leader by this title) be different under a parliamentary system?
