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 UN, EPA, And The Latest Climate Change Folly

BY MARK W. HENDRICKSON When writing about the IMF , I mentioned that bureaucracies tend to do everything possible to perpetuate themselves.

Chasing Dystopian Rainbows

It seems scientism passes for science these days STEWART DOMPE, ADAM C. SMITH, THE FREEMAN There are rarely any happy prophets. To get headlines you have to claim the world is ending. Add generous helpings of doom and gloom—and a pinch of apocalypse—and you’ll widen your audience. The most recent batch of dire predictions for humanity’s [...]

So, the U.N. Wants Control of the Internet

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ This morning the ACLJ launched a fast-growing petition (23,000 signatures in the first six hours) protesting the Obama Administration’s decision to hand over critical technical functions of the Internet to a “multinational body.” We’re calling on the President to reverse course or – failing that – Congress to take [...]

The Czar Strikes Back? Russian Armor in Crimea

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ With some parts of the Russian security state moving into Crimea, thoughtful people are saying that Putin is “intent on refighting the Cold War,” but I join others in thinking something much older is in play — the great power politics of the czars, including the balance-of-power jockeying that dominated much of [...]

Analysis of the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT)

MIKE HAMMOND, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) was scheduled for approval in the UN last year, in July, but was suddenly pulled off the table because Barack Obama thought (correctly) that it would destroy his reelection prospects. Interestingly, in considering Obama’s honesty and motives, the treaty was [...]
