Before the Twenty-second Amendment, the Presidency didn’t have a set number limit on how many times they could be elected or re-elected to the office of President of the United States. The Amendment sets that limit to two times, consecutively or not, and sets additional conditions for presidents who succeed to the unexpired terms of their predecessors.

1951 · The ANZUS Treaty

Like that of NATO, the ANZUS Treaty was a non-binding agreement between Australia, New Zealand, and the United States Security. It was signed to cooperate on military matters in the Pacific Ocean region. It provides safety for each other in case of an armed attack on any of the three countries.

The Voting Rights Act prohibits racial discrimination in voting. The Act secured the right to vote for minorities in the South. It also prohibits local governments from making any voting law that results in discrimination against any kind of minorities.
