The State of the Republic


The Constitution of the United States, Article II, Section 3, Clause 1, suggests that The President “shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”

Be it in person, through the airwaves – now through the internet, and in the future via whatever means of communication would be available -, every president has delivered an annual speech addressed to the Legislative Branch. Although the naming and the process have gone through quite a few changes, president after president have delivered to the Legislative body an update as to the State of the Union.
