Transcript of The 2nd Article of the Constitution

Opening Statement: The 2nd Article of the US Constitution: The Executive Branch By: Jack Robertson and Trevor Stiff The Second Article of the Constitution discusses the role of the Executive Branch. The Executive Branch includes the President, Chief of Staff, Cabinet members and Vice President. The President's job is similar to a job of a Prime Minister. His (or her) powers include Military Chief, power over legislative branch to veto, dictates foreign policy, etc. His/her cabinet includes the secretaries of; State, Defense, Treasury, Education, and Homeland Security. Causes: Characteristics: Significance: Conclusion: -The point of this branch and the reason for its establishment was to give our government a leader to help control and run our country.
-To give a leader to the military.
-Our founding fathers were used to an all too powerful leader.
-The President's position was created to lead the free world in the right direction. -Made the president in charge of the U.S Military
-Gave the president the ability to veto a law
-Gave the president the ability to make a treaty with other nations
-Gave the president the power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.
