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.

Liberated Women and the Traditional Family

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 [...]

The War Neither Obama, Nor Any Other Nation Wants to Fight

The War Neither Obama, Nor Any Other Nation Wants to Fight

BY ALAN CARUBA Two trends have emerged since President Obama’s September 10 speech regarding his intention to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State. One is the understanding that he will not commit U.S. troops as “boots on the ground” to fight a force estimated variously between 10,000 and 30,000 depending on intelligence [...]

Islam is the Face of Evil

Islam is the Face of Evil

BY ALAN CARUBA "ISIS is not Islamic", said  Barack Obama as he gave yet another vapid speech to say what he will or will not do next about the threat of Islam. What he said is both idiotic and a lie. ISIS calls itself the Islamic State. Obama used the word "war" only once, but ISIS is all about war---an Islamic holy war that has been [...]

Those 9/11 Terror Attack Predictions

Those 9/11 Terror Attack Predictions

BY ALAN CARUBA As we close in on the 13th anniversary of the infamous 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, the media is full of predictions about attacks that will occur. A September 2nd Debka File, an Israeli news agency, reported “Credible information has reached Saudi, British and Australian agencies that two al Qaeda [...]

Obama and Arabs Find a Common Enemy–the Islamic State

Obama and Arabs Find a Common Enemy–the Islamic State

BY ALAN CARUBA Given all the mutations that the Middle East has gone through thanks to the emergence of al Qaeda during the resistance to the Soviet takeover of Afghanistan, watching what is occurring now with an even more fanatical group calling itself the Islamic State (ISIS) and proclaiming itself the new caliphate has proven even more [...]

An Economist’s Bad Climate Advice

An Economist’s Bad Climate Advice

BY ALAN CARUBA If I need my car repaired, I do not take it to a dentist. If I am seeking advice about the climate I check out what climatologists and meteorologists are saying, at least those who have not sold their souls to the global warming/climate change hoax. On September 3 The Wall Street Journal published a commentary by Edward P. [...]

Is a Gay Football Player News?

Is a Gay Football Player News?

BY ALAN CARUBA Michael Sam, the first openly gay athlete drafted into the National Football League, did not make the cut with the St. Louis Rams after it trimmed its roster ahead of the start of the 2014 season. Sam has been signed for the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys, but given their dismal record of late we are not likely to hear [...]

U.S. No Longer has Influence in the Middle East

U.S. No Longer has Influence in the Middle East

BY ALAN CARUBA The rise of the Sunni Islamic State (ISIS) and its barbarity may be news to the West, but it is a very old story in the Middle East. Briefly stated, the Arabs have been at war with one another for some 1,400 years before and since the emergence of Islam and the schism that occurred between its Sunni and Shiite [...]

War as a Fact of Life

War as a Fact of Life

BY ALAN CARUBA Younger generations can be forgiven if all they know of war is what they have learned in school or seen dramatized on film and television. For most Americans, the Civil War, the two World Wars, and the conflicts in Korea and Vietnam are events that occurred “a long time ago.” For my generation, born just prior to or during [...]

Witnessing a Failed Presidency

Witnessing a Failed Presidency

BY ALAN CARUBA When we elect someone—anyone—to the office of President, it is only natural that we attribute great political skills, intellect, and judgment to that man. We want to believe we have selected someone with the ability to do what must be done in a dangerous and very complex world. This may explain why Presidents who have [...]
