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.

Obama Obeys the Feminists Again

BY PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY

Barack Obama and his Administration are the lackeys of the feminists and do whatever the feminists demand. ObamaCare insurance, which employers are mandated to provide and individuals are mandated to buy, was originally planned to include birth control, the morning-after-pill (which is an abortion drug), and sterilization, at zero cost to the individual, without any additional premium, co-pay, or out-of-pocket expense. This mandate was originally planned to apply to religiously affiliated hospitals, schools, colleges, and charities, even though their religion teaches them that these acts are immoral and wrong.

After this announcement created a firestorm, Obama announced what he calls an “accommodation.” Obama must think the American people are too stupid to see through the deception he is trying to put over on us. Instead of ordering the religiously affiliated employers to include this mandate, ObamaCare is instead ordering the insurance companies to pay the costs of these birth control/abortion services. But the religiously affiliated charities, hospitals, schools and colleges are mandated to buy the insurance. You can be sure insurance companies will price their products to make a profit. It’s obvious that insurance companies will distribute and conceal the costs so nobody appears to be paying for the controversial procedures. Since the insurance companies will not be permitted to charge different fees for different employees, all their customers will be paying something for the controversial services. Since the religiously affiliated employers are required to buy the insurance policies, that means they will actually be paying for the controversial services. This issue has aroused people of all religious denominations to speak out, transferring a health care issue into religious liberty issue.
