The US Constitution


The Unites States Constitution incorporates many significant figures.
Three of these are: The Elastic clause, The Amendment Process, and the
Electorial College
To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into
Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution
in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
This is the elastic clause. It gives congress the right to do anything
for the betterment of the American people. It makes the constitution flexible
and keeps it with the times.
The amendment process is how changes can be made to the constitution to
keep it with the times. For example, Amendment 19 states that the right of
citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the
United States or by any State on account of sex. To make an amendment, first
2/3 of either house must propose it. Then to ratify it, 3/4 of the state
legislatures must approve it.
The Electoral College system is a system used to elect the President.
Each state is given a certain amount of Electoral votes. This number is based
on how many congressmen that particular state has. The people of the state
vote, and whichever candidate gets the most votes gets all of that state\'s
electoral votes. We see this used every four years in the presidential election.
