American politics are unique. Americans run their very own democracy. Although it is still semi-run by people with high amounts of money. They have been calling this era of democracy "The Era of Good Feelings" because all continental politics are resolved. But soon many people started to believe in different things for the future. The American System is a plan to put taxes on imported goods.
American art is based on European traditions but is a all new style. Not all artists are professionals here there art is called folk art. Folk art is simple, direct, and colorful. Most professional artists made portraits. Portraits capture the personality and emotions of a person. Many other artists do very detailed paintings of birds.
America's national identity is expressed through music. Until now music used to be only heard in church. Now a days dancers swirl through ballrooms performing to the upper and middle classes. Down south slaves made there own music combining classic African songs and white churchgoers music creating spiritual music. People such as Samuel Francis Smith are writing patriotic songs. White men down south inspired by spiritual music created minstrel music.
American literature is very diverse. The British believed the United States were a backwards nation in literature. One type of writing is based on already existing folk lore and builds on it. Other authors write about frontier life. Others make fictional stories about themselves. The most classic form of American writing is poetry.
