61: National Constituent Assembly
... radical of these reactionary groups, who seized leadership of the French people, in the nation's time of need.

It ... Assembly did not want to create a Republic, it wanted to create a Constitutional Monarchy. It still wanted the King as Head of State, but wanted the people's rights and values outlined in a constitution, rather than decided by the King. In 1789 the Constituent Assembly began developing a Constitution, because it was what the French people wanted - but their moods quickly changed and the proposed constitution became a calamity. Some reforms made by the National Constituent Assembly were significant in furthering France economically, ...
62: Same Sex Marriages
... marriage as well as to enjoy its benefits, should the law prohibit their request merely because they are of the same gender? I intend to prove that because of Article IV of the United States Constitution, there is no reason why the federal government nor any state government should restrict marriage to a predefined heterosexual relationship. Marriage has changed throughout the years. In Western law, wives are now equal rather than ... Lewin, vacated a state circuit court judgment dismissing same-sex marriage claims and ruled that Hawaii's marriage law allowing heterosexual, but not homosexual, couples to obtain marriage licenses constitutes sex discrimination under the state constitution's Equal Protection Clause and Equal Rights Amendment. The case began in 1991 when three same-sex couples who had been denied marriage licenses by the Hawaii Department of Health brought suit in state court ... the heterosexuality requirement. Baehr and her attorney sought their objectives entirely through state law, not only by filing in state rather than federal court, but also by alleging exclusively violations of state law--the Hawaii Constitution. The state moved for judgment on the pleadings and for dismissal of the complaint for failure to state a claim; the state's motion was granted in October, 1991. Thus, the circuit court upheld ...
63: Egyptian Politics: The Fiction of a Multiparty System
... political society. For example, the Egyptian government can refuse to license a new political party if it violates any one of the following general principles: preserving national unity, safeguarding the social peace, adhering to the Constitution, defending the 'socialist gains,' or protecting the 'alliance of the working class.' This type of top-down polity is a direct outgrowth of the authoritarian traditions of the 1952 Revolution and the Arab Socialist Union ... another requirement in combination with the condition of distinction to place the founders of new parties in a political Catch-22: if the platform of a new party places emphasis on the adherence to the Constitution, as do the existing parties, it may then be rejected for not being different from the existing parties. But if the party platform calls for the amendment of the Constitution, it can be rejected for violating the Constitution. As regards the latter, this report will assert that new parties should not be denied the right to call for the amendment of the Constitution: since ...

... European influence at its borders. In addition to these economic implications, the purchase also had historic political implications.

65: The French Revolution
... among them. Some wanted to protect their rights, while others wanted to establish a limited, constitutional monarchy. This sparked some change in the French people.

Little happened, and they still faced their same problems of unemployment and inflation. Then there were reports that Louis XVI was ... the end of August, the National Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of Man. It stated that democratic principles would be the basis for French government. The job of turning these ideas into a constitution still remained. While the constitution was in the process of being made, an angry crowd in Paris rioted, forcing the National Assembly to recognize their demands. Some of these rioters were women. They were angry about food prices. They ...
66: Jefferson and Socrates' Idea of Democracy
... a proponent of rights of the people, and feared the threat of an elected monarchy. It was for these reasons that Jefferson led the fight for the addition of the Bill of Rights to the Constitution. Jefferson's fears were very real, in a letter to James Madison discussing details of the yet unratified constitution Jefferson wrote "Reflect on all the instances in history ancient & modern, of elected monarchies, and say if they do not give foundation for my fears. The Roman emperors, the popes, while they were of any importance, the German emperors till they became hereditary in practice..."(Peterson,1984,917) Jefferson won and the Bill of Rights is a staple of the Constitution. Jefferson however did not give up there that did not put and end to his fight to preserve democracy in America. Alexander Hamilton was Thomas Jefferson’s Meletus. They were opposite in every aspect, ...

... the abdication of Kaiser Wilhelm and the collapse of the Hohenzollern Monarchy, the German Empire founded by Bismark in 1871 (The Second Reich) came to an end. The new German Republic would eventually have a constitution that made it on paper one of the most liberal democracies in history. Its ideals included; equality for all, that political power would be only in the hands of the people, political minority representation in ... we shall have to hold our noses and enter the Reichstag against the Catholic and Marxist deputies. If outvoting them takes longer than outshooting them, at least the results will be guaranteed by their own Constitution! Any lawful process is slow. But sooner or later we shall have a majority - and after that Germany." - Hitler stated while in prison. The Nazi Party would be organized like a government itself, so that ... Hitler visited the Prime Minister of Bavaria and managed to convince him to lift the ban, on the promise of good behavior, and after promising the Nazis would work within the rules of the democratic constitution. He then wrote a long editorial for the Vφlkischer Beobachter called "A New Beginning" published February 26, 1925.

68: Cicero
... was thought. " It is, indeed, my judgment, opinion, and conviction that of all forms of government there is none which for organizing, distribution of power, and respect for authority is to be compared with that constitution which our fathers received from their ancestors and have bequeathed to us...... The roman commonwealth will be the model; and to it shall apply, if I can, all that I must say about the perfect ... Cicero goes against this somewhat. Cicero chooses tradition and Roman sentiment over logic when discussing the decay of states. However his opinions are belittled somewhat by Aristotle's views on the decaying of a states constitution. A contrast of Aristotle and Cicero on constitutional decay illuminates Cicero's acceptance of tradition. It is important to note the major differences between Aristotle's and Cicero's understanding of terms and powers at work. When Aristotle spoke of a states constitution, he referred to the well being of that state. He took the word constitution in a health sense; in a context of well being. In Aristotle the meaning of well being is implied because ...

However, before the second writing of the Thirteenth Amendment there was a missing Thirteenth Amendment which was part of the Constitution before the publishing of the current Thirteenth Amendment.
