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.

President Chris Christie?

President Chris Christie?

BY ALAN CARUBA A fatal crash on the George Washington Bridge this morning caused major backups, trapping commuters for up to three hours and stalling traffic back to the Garden State Parkway and other highways leading to the bridge. After Gov. Chris Christie spent two hours answering every question reporters asked following the revelation that [...]

“Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall”

“Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall”

BY ALAN CARUBA On June 12, 1987, the President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, speaking in Berlin, said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” It fell in 1989 and, in 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed. From the end of World War Two in 1945, the United States had stood strong against the Communist empire’s effort to extend its power [...]

Why is the U.S. Government in the Mortgage Loan Business?

Why is the U.S. Government in the Mortgage Loan Business?

BY ALAN CARUBA It is often truly astonishing to me the harm done by the way the federal government was expanded well beyond its constitutional limits during the 1930’s New Deal era. One dramatic example is the government’s role in the housing mortgage loan marketplace. I recently read a commentary by Steve Stanck, a research fellow at [...]

An Increased Minimum Wage Equals Greater Unemployment

An Increased Minimum Wage Equals Greater Unemployment

BY ALAN CARUBA It’s June, a month famed for marriages, but it is likely to be remembered for the high rate of teen unemployment which has been soaring for a long time. By February, the national unemployment rate for youth, age 16 to 19, had reached 20.7%. By November 2013  it was three times higher than the national average of 6.6% according [...]

No, Obama is Not Above the Law

No, Obama is Not Above the Law

BY ALAN CARUBA It was hard enough trying to keep up with the revelations of various scandals that have been the product of the Obama administration, but now into the second year of his second term, the news of its actions—some of which are illegal, some of which ignore Congress’s authority, and some of which seemed determined to destroy our [...]

Obama Must Go! (But He Won’t)

Obama Must Go! (But He Won’t)

BY ALAN CARUBA Given the collective anger over the exchange of five Taliban commanders for what appears to be a U.S. Army deserter, combined with the anger from the Veterans Administration revelations, one might be tempted to think that Obama would be impeached or would resign, but neither of those options will occur. He’s not leaving [...]

Can the Tea Party Take Over the GOP?

Can the Tea Party Take Over the GOP?

BY ALAN CARUBA “Republicans never, ever win the presidency unless they nationalize the election by campaigning on a conservative agenda—drawing a sharp contrast between the Democrat worldview and the conservative worldview.” That’s Richard A. Viguerie offering his insight and advice in his new book, “Takeover” ($27.95, WMD Books) [...]

Will the Midterm Elections Repeat History?

Will the Midterm Elections Repeat History?

BY ALAN CARUBA As Americans go to the polls in primary elections to select the candidates that will run in November, the question is how many Tea Party candidates will be among the winners. If there are a significant number among them, my feeling is that the November midterm elections are going to be a bloodbath for the Democratic [...]

Predicting the Weather? The Climate? You’re Kidding, Right?

Predicting the Weather? The Climate? You’re Kidding, Right?

BY ALAN CARUBA With some of the most sophisticated computers and satellites at its disposal, the U.S. Weather Service cannot tell you with any certainty what the weather will be in your area two weeks from now. It’s not that they don’t give forecasts beyond that a good try, but when you have to work with computers that cannot determine [...]

The Difference Between the Real World and Obama’s

The Difference Between the Real World and Obama’s

BY ALAN CARUBA I keep wondering what it must have been like to be a young student at West Point listening to their Commander in Chief’s platitudes and ignorance wash over them. West Point is where our nation’s future leaders in war receive an education in how to protect the nation by crushing our enemies, if Presidents and Congress will let [...]
