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.

On Mother’s Day, Remember Those Who Cannot Celebrate

MOTHER’S DAY, LIBERTY COUNSEL

Washington, DC – Mother’s Day is one of the most celebrated holidays in the United States. With 82.5 million mothers nationwide, this Sunday will be the peak day of the year for restaurants and long distance calls. A federal holiday since 1914, Mother’s Day is second only to Christmas for gift-giving.

Yet, while many women celebrate Mother’s Day with their families, many others must endure another reminder of a wrong choice or a coerced abortion. As Mother’s Day draws near, Liberty Counsel remembers those mothers who have been victimized by abortion and, as a result, will never celebrate this day with their own children. Post-abortive women report increased depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and drug and alcohol abuse.

“With one in three pregnancies ending in abortion, there are millions of hurting women in America,” said Anita Staver, President of Liberty Counsel. “As we celebrate Mother’s Day, we should remember each lonely mother who cannot hug the baby she once carried close to her heart,” she said. “Let us pray for healing and restoration for all post-abortive women. May they also find the strength to join the growing chorus of those who speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.”
