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.

Romney vs. McCain and Obama vs. Bush? Who Wins?

PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES Shortly after the November election, I wrote an article titled, “McCain Beats Romney!” The article focused on initial reports showing that Mitt Romney received fewer votes in 2012 than John McCain received in 2008.

Was the 2012 Election Stolen?—Selwyn Duke

BY SELWYN DUKE As the 2012 election approached, conservative enthusiasm grew. Mitt Romney was drawing huge crowds while Barack Obama spoke in half-filled stadiums. All the passion lay on the right while the left was discouraged with a promised messiah who proved merely a politician. And the prediction was that, in contrast to 2008, Republican [...]

Executive Privilege: 2012 Election & the Power of Incumbency

PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES Mitt Romney lost the presidential race by only two percentage points. If the election had been held just a week earlier, when he was up in the polls, things might have been different. Nonetheless, Mitt Romney lost, and now a bitter debate has ensued over the future of the Republican Party, with [...]

CORRUPTION CHRONICLES Three days after the presidential election Florida remains the butt of all jokes for failing to complete its vote tally, bringing back nightmarish memories of the state’s electoral meltdown a dozen years ago in the race between Al Gore and George W.

Duke: Third World Corruption and the 2012 Election

Duke: Third World Corruption and the 2012 Election

BY SELWYN DUKE One characteristic of Third World nations is corruption woven into the system. When I was in India many years ago, for instance, I learned you had to offer bribes to get anything done, even just to obtain a driver’s license. It was pay to play. There has been much focus on whether Barack Obama is a natural-born American, but [...]
