The constitution does not speak of the requirements for the right to vote. I suppose the consequence for it was that male citizen property owners could vote and African Americans were not considered a part of United States. Also, women were not included in the processes of elections along with Native Americans who were excluded from their right to vote in America till 1924. Next fact, the President is allowed to fill spots on the senate during the Recess of the Senate. However, it will expire in the end of their next session. Next fact I found in the constitution that I did not know was, “No perso shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. So, two people have to witness the treason?
James Madison was considered a small wise man. He was a leader of the Virginia Assembly and he participated in the production of the Constitution. James Madison was only 36 years old during the Constitutional Convention. James Madison helped build the Bill of Rights and first revenue legislation. He was the fourth president of the United States of America and in his first year in office the U.S decided to forbid trade with Britain and France. The British responded with seizure of their shipments, Madison was pressured into asking Congress to declare war. America was not prepared to fight a huge enemy, and so the British set fire to the original White House. He was a huge part in the political and protection of the United States. James Madison participated in many things, like, the Governor’s Council in Virginia. He was a “Founding Father” Thomas Jefferson wanted him to become his secretary.
