This is it..the Final

How did the Twelfth Amendment change the Electoral College?

What did George Washington say about political parties in his farewell address?

How do 527 political committees attempt to influence voters?

What were the Black Codes?

What standard does the Supreme Court use to determine whether classification by sexual orientation violates the equal protection clause?

What was the reaction of the south to the Fifteenth Amendment?

Welcome to the Final -

Today is the day of my first Final at College. :-O The good thing is, if I get a C on the final and a D on the constitution test, I will still get an A in the class! That makes me happy.

The 12th amendment says that there shall be separate votes for the President and Vice President.

The 13th amendment states that the slaves are free.

The 14th amendment tells us that any person born or naturalized in the United States is a citizen.
The 15th amendment gave the right to vote regardless of race or color.

The 19th amendment gave women the right to vote.

And the 26th amendment gave 18 year olds the right to vote.

The Big Box


You know what I want to do? I want to “ship” myself in a box and surprise a loved one. How cool would that be?!? Here’s what I would do – Talk to the rest of the person's family and get them on board with it. Then I would fly to whereever they live on Christmas Eve. And then, at 6 or so in the morning a family member would help me get into a huge box and tape it all up. (There would be some holes cut in the bottom of the box.) Then they would all come down and start to open the presents, and they would tell the person that they had to open the big one last. (The one with me in it.) So they would open all the presents and then they would move on to open the big box and out I would pop!! :-D Wouldn't that be fun?!?!?!?!?
