Presidential Implied Powers
This is important to American society because even if there are not things written in the constitution the president can do somethings that would be "right" for the country. Some things were not in effect when the constitution was written so the president has to adapt so certain things can help. If the president doesn't do somethings then we could be ruled by a different country or have a different government.

The Draft


Some implied powers of a president would be the draft. Abraham Lincoln inplimented the draft during the civil war. The draft was not written in the constitution but he felt it was his duty to have as many people to fight in this war thats going on.

This poster is trying to get people join the army without implimenting the draft. They do not want to force the people of America to be in the army. They want people to sign up of their own free will. The army wants people to feel like they are going to help the country by making them join the army.

What this image is trying to say is that even with the draft people find ways to get out of going to war. Bush and Cheney are seen as a draft dodger in this image because they did not go to war and fight for their country.

Foreign Policy

Another implied power would be foreign policy, which is one nations interaction with other countries. This picture is showing that during Bush's presidency all his concerns were with foreign affairs and not focusing on domestic concerns. This could be an example of a president worrying about to much on his implied powers and not on the ones actually written in the constitution.

The most recent application of this principle would be foreign policy. This would be us interacting with the middle east and the war going on.

Removal of Administrators                          

Although the Constitution doesn't grant the president the power to remove administrations for office, as the chief executive the president hold the power over the executive branch officers, unless such removal power is limited by the public law. This does not account for officers in the independent establishments.  Read more:
