I. More on the Presidency Why we’ve changed from Madisonian to Hamiltonian (weak to powerful) B. Reason #1 There has been tremendous growth in the size and scope of the government C. Reason #2 There has been a change in the perception concerning what the President’s job or role should be. II. Constitution Says: A. President is commander-in-chief of the military Back when the Constitution was written, our army was downright puny Today, we have the largest military in the world B. President has the power to make treaties with the consent of the Senate Today, President goes solo when it comes to foreign affairs. Senate stays out of the way. C. Only Congress can declare war Our framers believed that one person shouldn’t be in charge of the army AND decide when we go to war and who we go to war with. Today, Presidents have decided when to go to war, and violated the Constitution.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
