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.

Facts and Fallacies About Paycheck Fairness

A Little Past Due Love for Cousin Glen

LLOYD MARCUS, PROUD UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN As a 9 or 10 year old, my knowledge of the situation was limited. Therefore, I can not pass judgment on the adults.

Don’t Push China and Russia Together

Don’t Push China and Russia Together

TED GALEN CARPENTER, CATO INSTITUTE One of the more notable results of Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea is how unenthusiastic the Chinese government has been about that development.
