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.

Plymouth and the Defamation of Christian Character

Plymouth and the Defamation of Christian Character

BY ANDRÉ FRENCH I am simply disgusted. Hi atop Cole’s Hill, overlooking Plymouth Harbor, stands an enormous bronze statue of Massasoit, the chief of the Wampanoag tribe. Not as imposing a presence is another memorial placed a short stone’s throw away from this tribute to the Native Americans befriended by the Plymouth settlers. That [...]

Soda Prohibition: Bloomberg’s Control of POP Culture

Soda Prohibition: Bloomberg’s Control of POP Culture

Andre French BY ANDRÉ FRENCH Look... I have no use for soda. Not because it doesn't taste good, or because it's cold effervescence doesn't quench a parched thirst on a blistering day. I have a heavy aversion to it because it not only offers nothing of nutritional value; I actually consider it bad for me. But, I do possess the human decency [...]

The Divine Distance – Bridging the Divide Between the Mind and the Heart

Andre French BY ANDRÉ FRENCH It has always fascinated me that the grace of God does not discriminate in matters of intellect. While the educated elite may argue that Christ is a crutch for millions of brainwashed adherents, there are those among the intelligentsia that have come to embrace not only the crutch of Christ by which they stand, [...]

Andre French The Intersection of the American Civil War and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict BY ANDRÉ FRENCH In light of the celebratory atmosphere surrounding Spielberg’s Lincoln, and the disturbing atmosphere surrounding the UN’s declaration of statehood to Hamas harboring Palestine… I’ve been thinking a lot lately, about [...]

Pay It Backward—André French

Andre French BY ANDRÉ FRENCH Likely you’ve heard about the random acts of kindness that occasionally take place at fast food chains like Starbucks. The “Pay It Forward” phenomenon has been cropping up throughout the country for several years now. It all starts when a customer at the drive-thru tells the cashier that they would like to [...]

Our Pilgrim Legacy

Our Pilgrim Legacy

BY ANDRÉ FRENCH When most Americans entertain the relevance of the Plymouth Pilgrims, images of turkeys and Indians are conjured up. There they are, sitting in festive celebration surrounded by pumpkins and cornstalks. It is a light hearted, happy scene that gives no indication of the long and tumultuous road that brought them to this table in [...]

Lincoln’s Sacrifice—André French

Lincoln’s Sacrifice—André French

By André French Not so hidden among the volumes in my library is a shelf devoted to my favorite American, Abraham Lincoln. Many a birthday and Christmas have added to its number, and I’ve considered such gifts true treasures. Amid the finer contemporary works is the favored “Team of Rivals” by Doris Kearns Goodwin, a gift from my wife [...]

Christianity, the Nanny State and Caring By Proxy

Christianity, the Nanny State and Caring By Proxy

André French BY ANDRÉ FRENCH Since I was eleven, and my grandfather sat me down in front of an old black and white to watch his party’s national convention, I have both enjoyed and deplored my addiction to the study of politics and the human condition. Something bit me that summer in 1972. Something beautiful and something bitter. Gramps [...]
