    A secret ballot is a vote where no one sees who you voted for

    A city manager form of government is one where the mayor delegates much administration to a manager who answers to him and the city council.

    A commission system is one in which an area of government is delegated to an officer who takes the title of Commissioner. Police departments are often headed by a Commissioner.

    Northern Securities Co. v. United States, 193 U.S. 197 (1904), was an important ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court ruled 5 to 4 against the stockholders of the Great Northern and Northern Pacific railroad companies, who had essentially formed a monopoly, and to dissolve the Northern Securities Company.

    The New Freedom, according to writers for the Wikipedia, is the policy of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson which promoted antitrust modification, tariff revision, and reform in banking and currency matters.

    The Federal Reserve system was founded by the New Deal administration during the 30's. It helps to guarantee the security and safety of the banks and other financial institutions of the USA.

    secret ballot - the system of voting we utilize today. also known as the paper ballet. this is a system in which no one knows how you voted. ex: you go into a private room to vote so no one else can see. before this people simmply raised their hands in a crowded room or said yea or nay.

    federal reserve system- a federal system which backs up the money in private banks. ex: when you put your money in a bank and that bank goes out of business, you will not lose your money. the federal reserve system will give you the money that you had in the bank. however this is usually only up to about $100,000.
