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.

A Disaster of Biblical Proportions?

Liberty Alerts, American Center for Law and Justice

If we believe the terminology the Obama Administration is using as they push for a debt ceiling increase, the United States is headed for an economic “disaster of biblical proportions.”

How our nation got here and how we move forward is as much about principle and our moral obligations as it is about the trillions of dollars Washington is currently arguing over.

As stewards of what we have been given, what is our responsibility and our leaders’ responsibility as our nation continues to rack up enormous amounts of debt? What impact will this debt – largely owed to China – have on our children and grandchildren’s future?

Please read my latest piece on this important topic for the new ACLJ blog, The Docket. As Americans of faith, we often direct our energies into issues related to life and the family. The amount of debt that our nation has incurred is proving to be a tremendous threat to every American family today and to our future. Please share this article – and the in-depth resources of the new ACLJ.org – with your friends and family by forwarding this email, and sharing it on Facebook and Twitter.

If you have not gone to the new ACLJ.org, please make sure you do. So many members of the ACLJ actively participate in our petitions and sign on to our legal briefs and then ask us what else can be done? The new ACLJ.org offers an unparalleled amount of legal resources – including briefs on important issues people of faith encounter in the world every day – and opportunities to get involved by contacting Members of Congress, sharing this information on Facebook and Twitter, and more.

We have created pages on the site where you can find all of the latest information on the issues you care most about: protecting America’s Religious Heritage, defending pro-life pregnancy centers, defunding Planned Parenthood, defeating ObamaCare, defending Israel, continuing the legal War on Terror and dozens of other issues that we are working on every day.

We have also made it easier for you to share the wealth of information we have provided on the issues that concern you the most with your family and friends through email, Facebook, and Twitter. Please read my latest article, check out the information available to you, and share your thoughts with your friends and family and on the ACLJ’s official Facebook page. You can also share your thoughts directly with me on the official Facebook page of The Jordan Sekulow Show.

We must never take our freedoms for granted; and one way to ensure that doesn’t happen is to remind our fellow citizens of those freedoms and take a stand every time they are threatened.

Thank you for sharing in our vision to protect and promote life and liberty everywhere they are attacked. We could not have this impact without your continued support.
