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.

The Public Consequences of So-Called Private Choices

The Public Consequences of So-Called Private Choices

BY STEVE FARRELL Should the decision to partake of illegal drugs become sacrosanct, now and forever? Or to put it another way, are all moral choices, no matter how extreme, beyond the reach of the law because they involve private decisions on moral matters? This is a good question. There are political forces both on the left and on the right [...]

Never hurts to ask

Never hurts to ask

BY T.F. STERN It’s fun to joke around with total strangers waiting in line to pay for groceries or gas.  I’ve been doing it for years, starting with the little Vietnamese lady who ran the Stop & Rob store; might have had a different name but you get the idea. Each time I’d visit the store to purchase a Big Gulp soda,  about 3 or [...]

Liberated Women and the Traditional Family

BY ALAN CARUBA My generation, born in the late 1930s and the 1940s, has witnessed a dramatic change in the role and the rights of women in America. A significant result of the women’s liberation movement is a change in the role of traditional marriage that was reported in early September. “If you count a generation as spanning 20 [...]

Where’s the Payoff in Gambling?

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY For those who promote legalized gambling as a means of economic development or revitalization, or as a painless way to pay for public schools, the recent news from Atlantic City, NJ, is sobering.

GREAT WALL OF CHINA: By 220AD, the Later Eastern Han Dynasty had extended sections of the Great Wall of China along its Mongolian border. This resulted in the Northern Huns attacking west instead of east. This caused a domino [...]

Big Fat Lies About Fat

Big Fat Lies About Fat

BY ALAN CARUBA Americans are obsessed with fat; either with eating it or being it. We’ve been told that we’re too fat and we’re told that eating fat is bad for you. Being fat is your own business. You’ll feel better if you lose a few pounds, but you will enjoy your next meal if it has a fat content rather than being a bland [...]

What Has Happened to Protests in America?

Throughout our history, there have been many protests and those against slavery evolved into the Civil War. War—whether for or against it—has been a prime generator of protests. On the evenings of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday [...]

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

BY SELWYN DUKE Western civilization lied and people died. It lied, that is, to itself. I am referring to Iraq, but not to the hapless George W. Bush and the claim of WMDs’ existence, which wasn’t a lie at all. What is at issue here is more fundamental. It’s a lie that imbues Bushes, Clintons and Obamas, both the left and the right [...]

Benedict Obama’s Invasion of America

Benedict Obama’s Invasion of America

BY SELWYN DUKE If millions of soldiers from south of the border were flooding our nation for the purposes of colonizing our land, we would easily recognize the threat. And if some amongst us were aiding and abetting this invasion — purposely lowering border security to facilitate it — we’d know what to call them. And we’d know how they [...]
