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.

A Christmas Wish – Jay Sekulow

JAY SEKULOW, ACLJ

aclj photoThis Christmas, I am gathering with my family to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. We are celebrating a message of hope and love – a message that is so desperately needed these days.

The challenges facing this country and the world are significant. And for many Americans, there is much pain this Christmas season.

But, as Christians, we know that we do not face these challenges and problems alone. We call on a merciful and loving God to provide comfort and healing for the weary, the broken-hearted, the afflicted.

As we pray this Christmas season, please don’t forget about the men and women who defend our nation – those in the Armed Forces – those who risk their lives to protect ours.

At the same time, let’s take a moment to reflect on the tremendous blessings that the Lord has bestowed upon us and our nation.

My Christmas wish for you: May the joy and peace of Christmas be with you and your family now and throughout the New Year.

On behalf of everyone at the ACLJ, Merry Christmas to you and yours!
