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.

Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.
