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.

No Place Here for Part-time Patriots

Tyranny Unmasked, J. Edgar Hoover

There is no place here in America for part-time patriots. This nation is face to face with the greatest danger ever to confront it, a sinister and deadly conspiracy which can be conquered only by an alert, informed citizenry. It is indeed appalling that some members of our society continue to deplore and criticize those who stress the communist danger. Public indifference to this threat is tantamount to national suicide. Lethargy leads only to disaster. Knowledge of the enemy, alertness to the danger, everyday patriotism are the brick and mortar with which we can build an impregnable fortress against communism.

Source: J. Edgar Hoover, as quoted by President David O. McKay in his address “The Voice of Appreciation,” from the April 1962 General Conference Report of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Tyranny Unmasked is a project of Steve Farrell and The Moral Liberal.

The Moral Liberal recommends J. Edgar Hoover’s classic look into Communism found in A Study of Communicsm
and in Masters of Deceit: The Story of Communism in America and How to Fight It. The principles and methods discussed in these books are just as applicable today as ever. No, communism is rarely called by that name any more. Yes, it and its agents have never left us and their battle to overthrow our liberties will no doubt be pursued down to the last hour and the last man.
