The Twenty-Fifth Amendment To The Constitution Of The United States : A Thesis ..., Francis Joseph Romano

University of the Pacific Theses and Dissertations

This paper presents a study of the Twenty·-Fifth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. The Amendment was first proposed to Congress as Senate and House Joint Resolutions in February 1965. It became law in February 1967, when Nevada secured the distinction of being the 38th state to ratify it, thus fulfilling the required agreement by three·-fourths of the states.

The Amendment has not yet been tested. It is the first comprehensive legislative attempt to solve three related problems that have plagued the executive branch of our government since the earliest days of the Union.

A History Of The Third Term Tradition, 1789-1928 : A Thesis ..., Elmer Ellsworth Stevens Jan 1940

University of the Pacific Theses and Dissertations

From Washington to Franklin Roosevelt many different viewoints and arguments have been advanced. Out of the wealth of material which is available I have attempted so far as possible to select impartially representative utterances on both sides of the question.

In our national history there have been several presidential elections in which the third term question was a major issue. That is especially true of the campaign (1940) which is now being fought. However, this paper ...
