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.

Citing Articles

As far as we know, no one has yet developed a uniform system for citing references on and from the Internet. We suggest, therefore, using the following as a guide to citing references from the Internet in term papers, theses, and on websites. It is a modification of existing standard guidelines for printed material.

If one of these does not fit your specific situation, then use your common sense. But, always give the TITLE of the website and the URL (www.+++) when citing other material.

If you are citing rather long passages, you may have to obtain permission from the copyright owner. Most copyright owners are quite generous in granting permission, provided proper citation is made. For permission to reprint material from The Radical Academy, contact [email protected].
