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.

If You Want to Get into a Really Big War, Elect a Liberal

If You Want to Get into a Really Big War, Elect a Liberal

BY SELWYN DUKE If I pointed out that involvement in every major 20th-century conflict the US was part of occurred on liberals’ watch, it might not be entirely fair. True, there was WWI under Wilson, WWII under FDR, Korea under Truman, and Vietnam under Kennedy and Johnson. But the second Great War needed to be fought, four conflicts aren’t [...]

The Free Market Ignores the Poor – Clichés of Progressivism

LEONARD E. READ, THE FREEMAN Clichés of Progressivism, Part 6 Once an activity has been socialized for a spell, nearly everyone will concede that that’s the way it should be. Without socialized education, how would the poor get their schooling? Without the socialized post office, how would farmers receive their mail except at great [...]

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

BY SELWYN DUKE Western civilization lied and people died. It lied, that is, to itself. I am referring to Iraq, but not to the hapless George W. Bush and the claim of WMDs’ existence, which wasn’t a lie at all. What is at issue here is more fundamental. It’s a lie that imbues Bushes, Clintons and Obamas, both the left and the right [...]

Benedict Obama’s Invasion of America

BY SELWYN DUKE If millions of soldiers from south of the border were flooding our nation for the purposes of colonizing our land, we would easily recognize the threat. And if some amongst us were aiding and abetting this invasion — purposely lowering border security to facilitate it — we’d know what to call them. And we’d know how they [...]
