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.

I Cannot

Liberty Alerts, American Center for Law and Justice

We are at a critical juncture in the fight to save Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s life. We expect the Iranian court to release its written verdict regarding his execution sentence for converting from Islam to Christianity as early as Monday.

It is absolutely critical that we continue to speak loudly and actively call on the Iranian regime to spare Pastor Youcef’s life and release him. We need your voice today.

Please sign our petition urging Secretary of State Clinton to call for Pastor Youcef’s immediate release. It is critical that our top diplomat take a stand for this innocent man, whose only “crime” is that he is a Christian.

When asked to recant his faith in Christ – under the threat of death – Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani replied, “I cannot.”

Together we can help save his life through our prayers, our voices, and by pressing our diplomatic leaders to call on Iran to spare his life.

If you have not done so already, please sign our petition today, as Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s life literally hangs in the balance. We are close to reaching the critical threshold of over 100,000 online signatures.

Please take a moment to share this petition by forwarding this message and using the Facebook “Like” buttons.

Your immediate action is critical, as increased pressure from the international community could sway the judges to release him.

That is why we have taken aggressive action, working with Pastor Youcef’s attorney in Iran, Members of Congress, and the international media. We have just sent a letter to the United Nations (U.N.) High Commissioner for Human Rights on Pastor Nadarkhani’s behalf, stating:

“Before another innocent man loses his life, we urge you to take a stand against Iran’s violation of human rights. We urge you to call upon the Iranian government and demand the immediate and unconditional release of Pastor Youcef.”

Will you join us in taking a stand for Pastor Youcef as he continues to stand for his faith in the face of death? Please sign this critical petition today, before it is too late.
