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.

Presidential Christmas Messages

ronalad-reagan-christmas-photoAmerican Minute with Bill Federer


Ronald Reagan stated in his Christmas Address, DECEMBER 20, 1983:

“Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations we forget the true meaning of Christmas . . . the birth of the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ . . . During this glorious festival let us renew our determination to follow His example.”

Franklin Roosevelt said in his Christmas Message, 1942:

“I say that loving our neighbor as we love ourselves is not enough- that we as a Nation and as individuals will please God best by showing regard for the laws of God. There is no better way of fostering good will toward man than by first fostering good will toward God. If we love Him we will keep His Commandments.”

Franklin Roosevelt continued:

“In sending Christmas greetings to the armed forces and merchant sailors…we include our pride in their bravery on the fighting fronts . . . It is significant that Christmas Day our plants and factories will be stilled. That is not true of the other holidays.”

Franklin Roosevelt concluded:

“On all other holidays work goes on- gladly- for the winning of the war. So Christmas becomes the only holiday in all the year. I like to think that this is so because Christmas is a holy day. May all it stands for live and grow throughout the years.”
