Constitution-Article 2

The Presidency

The need for a Chief Executive was seen early enough. Congress can deliberate, but decisive decision-making would always be a flaw. And what if Congress was deadlocked?

Presidential Powers: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

However, the Founders were, probably for very good reason, wary of this power. Presidents could only serve a 4-year term, had to be elected by Electors based in the various states, and had to be a natural born citizen. While there were no term limits then, the term itself was limited, and was subject to being voted in each time.

At first, the President was simply the winner, while the Vice President was the loser of the Electoral College. But after a fiasco, the 12th Amendment was passed requiring both President and Vice President to run as a ticket. However both could not be from the same state without forfeiting that state’s Electoral Votes. Also the 12th Amendment created procedures for voting for Vp and P when no one has a majority of Electoral Votes or dies before taking office. Massa vitae tortor condimentum lacinia quis vel eros.
