At the time that Gotham City was situated, the political condition of the country was
undergoing major transition. There was great need for politicians to take up opportunities
created by the masses as a leverage for their own cause. Gotham City with its
infrastructure would have been an ideal situation for any political figure to take up and
use it for his own advantage.

Michael Curley, who has been a democratic candidate himself, was keen on individuality. He
had been nominated for Boston's mayor several times but he had not been able to achieve
significant success with Congress due his criminal background. Curley would have suggested
that the town continues to develop the Gotham district that was thriving and at the same
time the immigrant groups should be paid more attention. Curley believed that every person
is entitled to social rights. Even if he was charged with fraud himself and jailed, the
Bostinanian believed in individuality. He belived that any misuse of public rights should
be rectified by law. In the case of Gotham City, the rights of the immigrants were being
misuse; therefore they should be given their due rights.

Similarly, George Washington Plunkitt (1842-1924) would also have the opinion that people
whether poor or rich should be given opportunities to rectify their situation. He believed
in dealing with any situation in an honest manner, not through dishonest black mailing
etc. He believed every man is an opportunist and he should use such opportunities to
better his cause. Whether these opportunities comes in the form of rectification of a city
living standards or investing in a project. With Gotham City's background an opportunist
should take up the situation in his own hand to improve the condition of the city. With an
infrastructure like Gotham, Plunkitt would have considered the city a good investment. To
improve the condition of the city, they would have to improve the living condition of the
immigrants further. This way they would build a stronger city and labor force for the
meager industrial structure further.

On the other hand Woodrow Wilson with his Princeton background would have a different view
for reorganization of Gotham City. Wilson gained a Ph.D. and professorhood when he became
president of Princeton in 1902. His main concern was to reorganize the curriculum and
introduction of preceptorial system of instruction to provide individualized education to
the masses. His main concern was to improve the quality of life through the basic
foundation. If he were faced with the problems of Gotham City, he would have suggested the
improved condition of education for the immigrants. This would eliminate the living
standards of these people thereby improving their quality of life. Once this is done the
issue of saloons and bars would automatically be eliminated.

Like Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt could be considered a true hero for humanitarian. It took
courage and compassion for humanity to drive the many doctrines that Roosevelt believed
the people should have. For him, people deserved good and honest politics and that
includes the politics for better standards of living. Roosevelt truly believed he could
make a change to limit to offend his opponents. In the case of Gotham City, he would have
taken steps similar to Wilson but with the difference that he would have campaigned solely
for the immigrants because according to him they were most unfortunate. His heroic
qualities would enforce him to take drastic steps against the mayor and the industrialists
to provide for these individuals because to him they deserve more then a few saloon and
bars. Hence, Roosevelt would have campaigned, used his political standing to fight against
the elite for the poor.

In the above both pairs of politicians demonstrate a great compassion for the group of
destitute people in Gotham city. What makes their opinions countable would be due to the
fact that they believed in humanitarian cause. Although Curley and Plunkitt would not have
conventional model for modification of the city, they nevertheless would have worked in
the same manner as Wilson and Roosevelt. What is most important in this issue is the
ability of election candidates, leaders to use their powers, as they believe fit to turn
around the living conditions of the people. Not many individuals would endeavor to do so
because most would be too busy to fight for their own personal cause but these individuals
could be said/ guaranteed to follow their plans in the above manners because they have
demonstrated such acts during their tenure in the history of the United States of America.

By the end of the 19th century, America after the war with Spain and Cuba apprehended a
front that could be said to be anti imperialist. For this reason it had boycott any kind
