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.

Do Property Rights Exist in Our Day?

Do Property Rights Exist in Our Day?

BY T.F. STERN A curious question, “Do property rights exist in our day”?  The reason I asked had to do with recent observations on the social medium Facebook.  Most of the articles that I commented on recently had to do with property rights in one way or another; but the issues associated with each comment came across as if the property [...]

Christian Socialism – a true oxymoron

BY T.F. STERN The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by a fellow named Francis Bellamy, a Baptist minister and it was formally adopted by Congress as the pledge in 1942.  Bellamy felt strongly that it should be used in the public school system and used Columbus Day to kick start its use as it coincided with the opening of the World's [...]

Freedom of the Press is now an Entitlement?

By T.F. Stern Diane Feinstein and a few other well meaning Senators are in the process of defining who qualifies for 1st Amendment rights, or privileges as she put it, as the Senate Judiciary Committee attempts to iron out a “shield law for reporters or journalists” from having to divulge their sources. This rush for an immediate fix [...]

TSA Sells 4th Amendment Protection — T.F. Stern

By T.F. Stern,   You read that right, TSA is now selling individuals their unalienable right that protects them from unreasonable and unwarranted searches.  It will only cost $100 for the new government entitlement that permits frequent flyers to avoid having to wait in long lines, take off their shoes, expose their toiletries in a [...]

Goons and the Fourth Amendment — T.F. Stern

By T.F. Stern,   My son William and his sweetheart Abbey were married last night on the same beach he proposed to her a year ago.  Bolivar peninsula isn’t the easiest destination, requiring a very long road trip or, as an alternative, a short ferry ride across the ship channel.  It was a lovely ceremony in spite of the mosquitoes [...]

“Stupid” Tea Party Extremists — T.F. Stern

By T.F. Stern, Now and then I read where folks deride the Tea Party movement as if it were some sort of blemish on the face of America.  Words or combinations of words complete the thought process, crazy, stupid extremists, zealots, insane; you get the picture.  My thoughts turned to another time not so long ago when a different group of [...]

A Mountain of Words — T.F. Stern

By T.F. Stern,   The Declaration of Independence offers a starting point, a glimpse of liberty and all its transient meanings. Our basic structure of government is based on the acceptance; change that, demands the acceptance of a separation between natural rights of individuals and powers granted to their government. “We hold these [...]

Citizenship or Servitude — T.F. Stern

Citizenship or Servitude — T.F. Stern

By T.F. Stern, One of the principles of our constitutional form of government has to do with the flow of power from the individual, to a group of individuals and then to our government which is permitted to govern us through powers granted it by that group of individuals and eventually the individual.  There is a stipulation buried deep within [...]
