ARE NOT HUMAN BEINGS GOING THROUGH A TEMPORARY SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE.
WE ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS GOING THROUGH A TEMPORARY HUMAN EXPERIENCE.
*****A Note on President's Day*****
"Government run by organized money Is as Dangerous as Government run by organizedmobs"
"If a Nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be... if we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every American to be informed." -- Thomas Jefferson
The Articles of Confederation was the first governing document of the United States of America.
The President of the Continental Congress, which was a position similar to a Prime Minister, was the highest authority; under the Articles of Confederation, the position adopted the title President of the United States in Congress Assembled, and Samuel Huntington was the first presiding officer (September 28, 1779 to July 6, 1781)
Thomas McKean was the 2nd. (July 10, 1781 to November 5, 1781)
John Hanson's term as President of Congress of the United States, during this critical formation period, did have longstanding influence. John Hanson was the first President of the United States to serve the full one-year term (1781–82), under the ratified Articles of Confederation. He was the first to use that title when dealing with foreign governments, diplomats, or treaties. Congress had little authority beyond those powers, which had been specifically delegated to it by the states, and its weakness during this period led directly to a decline in influence and the 1787 Constitution, with a more robust federal model.
The following men served as President of the United States in Congress Assembled:
It was completed on September 17, 1787, with its adoption by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and was later ratified by special conventions in each state. It created a federal union of sovereign states, and a federal government to operate that union. It replaced the less defined union that had existed under the Articles of Confederation. It took effect in 1789 and has served as a model for the constitutions of numerous other nations. The Constitution of the United States of America is the oldest written national constitution in use.
George Washington became the 1st. President of the United States under the New Constitution.
