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.

Nov. 24 – A man with God is always in the majority

American Minute with Bill Federer

Sentenced as a galley slave on a French ship, he looked up as they sailed passed St. Andrews, Scotland, and said:

“I see the steeple of that place where God first in public opened my mouth to glory; and I am fully persuaded . . .I shall not depart this life till my tongue shall glorify his godly name in the same place.”

John Knox was eventually released, met John Calvin, and returned to Scotland where he preached in St. Andrews. He then confronted Mary, Queen of Scots, mother of England’s King James I. In 1560, John Knox led Scotland to establish the Presbyterian Church.

Dying NOVEMBER 24, 1572, John Knox stated:

“A man with God is always in the majority.”

A descendant of John Knox was Presbyterian minister John Witherspoon, who signed the Declaration of Independence and, as President of Princeton, he taught 9 of the 55 writers of the U.S. Constitution, including James Madison. On May 26, 1789, the Presbyterian Churches in the United States wrote to President Washington:

“We . . . esteem it a peculiar happiness to behold in our Chief Magistrate, a steady, avowed friend of the Christian religion . . . who, in his private conduct, adorns the doctrines of the gospel of Christ.”

President Washington replied in May of 1789:

“While I reiterate the professions of my dependence upon Heaven . . . I will observe that . . . no man who is profligate in his morals . . . can possibly be a true Christian.”
