A country cannot be truly democratic until its citizens have the opportunity to choose their representatives through elections that are free and fair. Critical development efforts cannot succeed without a legitimate and democratically elected government that is responsive and accountable to its citizens. Elections provide an important opportunity to advance democratization and encourage political liberalization. For an election to be free and fair, certain civil liberties, such as the freedoms of speech, association and assembly, are required. Elections can be a primary tool to foster political openings and expand political participation. Electoral processes offer political parties and civic groups an opportunity to mobilize and organize supporters and share alternative platforms with the public. Elections also serve to encourage political debate and public dialogue. –"Supporting Free and Fair Elections," US Agency for International Development What is the main idea of this passage? 1.

Why might the use of conscription have been negatively viewed

Answers

Answer:

Democrats considered people should not be forced into armed services, is the right answer.

Explanation:

Conscription is the capability of ordering people to enter into armed services. Many Democrats see Conscription negatively and opposed it since it radically nulls and voids the right of an individual to chose whether or not to enter the army and forces people to fight in a battle they do not consider which.

Conscription forces someone to go to war; no one likes to be forced to do something against their will
People forced to go to war may be putting family and friends at risk who they were taking care of.
Less people will be working if everyone is at war

How did the food sources for native americans of the north and northwest differ from those native americans living in the west and southwest?

Answers

The food sources of Native Americans of the North and Northwest differed from that of Natives that lived in the West and Southwest due to the impact of  climate which determined the types of food that were available. People in the North and Northwest did not farm. Irrigation allowed the people in the west to farm in dry areas.

Answer:The Native Americans of the north and northwest are different than the Native Americans living in the west and south west because in the north and northwest they hunted large animal, fished, ate wild plants. However, in the southwest and west they hunted, farmed, gathered plants, and trapped small animals.

How do u think the distances between the pacific islands affected u.s. naval strategies

Answers

The US Navy adopted a strategy of island hopping, where important islands were invaded and captured, while less important islands - even though fortified and defended by the Japanese - were bypassed and left to whither on the vine. The key determination about whether an island was worthy to invade was whether it had an airstrip - which in Japanese control would have been a danger to Allied forces, and in American control would provide a place to land and refuel transports or bombers. 

An exception to this philosophy was the recapture of the Philippine Islands. The Navy felt they could bypass the islands, though they would regularly need to shell/bomb the airfields. The Army (MacArthur) felt US credibility was at risk (remember he said "I shall return" when he was forced to leave after the Japanese invaded early in the war) and the islands were assaulted and recaptured by the Army. 

The individual islands were not the objective, Japan was.

Why did inflation and other economic problems lead to demobilization

Answers

Inflation and other economic problems lead to demobilization because of the peace time in the country after the wwI, there was sudden demand of goods by the consumers and less production of the weapons in the war industries.

Explanation:

  • Demobilization is the process when the military forces of the country, even if they are ready to combat are drawn down.
  • This is mostly because of the peace time in the country. After the end of the WWI, the demand for goods by the people increased leading to sudden inflation.
  • This led to production of the consumer goods and not war time goods. This further added to the demobilization.
  • This affected the economy more and led to unemployment in the war industries.
