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.

No Speech Can Fix This

HERITAGE FOUNDATION, AMY PAYNE President Obama has been on a foreign tour. How’s it going on the world stage?

AMY PAYNE, HERITAGE FOUNDATION Today is “Equal Pay Day” for those who believe that The Man is keeping women down.

“I Don’t Know How President Obama Thinks That He’s Helping Us”

AMY PAYNE, HERITAGE FOUNDATION On Super Bowl Sunday, Bill O’Reilly asked President Obama what many Americans are probably wondering. “Was it the biggest mistake of your presidency to tell the nation over and over, ‘If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance’?” >>> Check Out: How Some Senate Farm Bill [...]

What Reagan Knew About Missile Defense

What Reagan Knew About Missile Defense

AMY PAYNE, HERITAGE FOUNDATION It would take only 33 minutes for a missile to reach the U.S. from anywhere in the world.
