Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Presidential Objections

The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday comes from Article I.7.2, "If the President does not approve of a bill, he shall return it, with his objections, to that house from which it originated, and the objections of the President shall be entered in the journal of that house." This provision allows the President to veto and send back any bill that he does not approve of, and it also gives Congress the right to keep an official record of the Presidential concerns.
