Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Wachovia Bank Bans Christmas Tree Displays From Its Branches

Liberty Alerts, Liberty Counsel

Editor’s Note: Wachovia has released new policy relating to this. Click Here to see more on the subject.

Wachovia Bank has adopted a policy this year banning all Christmas trees from the décor in their local office branches this Christmas. Wachovia’s policy has offended many customers who have accounts with the bank. One woman has already canceled her account and many others are threatening to follow suit.

Wachovia’s corporate office told Fox News in Orlando, “At Wachovia, we respect the diversity of our customers and team members [sic] therefore we are decorating our stores with poinsettia plants so that everyone can be included.” That decision is ironic considering the symbolism of the poinsettia, which is known as the Christmas flower. One version of folklore says  that these flowers were a poor girl’s gift to the Christ child at a nativity display in Mexico, and, when presented, the plant miraculously turned bright red.

Liberty Counsel is continuing its eighth annual “Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign,” pledging to be a “Friend” to those who recognize Christmas and a “Foe” to those who censor Christmas.   Liberty Counsel has added the Wachovia Bank to the naughty side of its “Naughty and Nice” list, which catalogs companies that either censor (“naughty”) or recognize (“nice”) Christmas. Customer voices have a big impact on corporate action.
