Your claim would be stronger with a reference to the Declaration.

Nice analogy! You are ignoring the elites problem, though. You'll need such large legislative districts the closer to the land common folk are, the less they'll be heard in the federal capital. Once the government is centralized, you're telling me that the representatives of all the people (327 million today) will be able to fit under one roof and make decisions that are best for everyone. Nay. They do what's in the best interests of those who can afford into the club.

No one has brought up the Second Amendment? Nevermind, BC just said they did somewhere. But this claim would be strengthened by a reference to it.

Great point! Where is the main source of power of the purse (POP) in the Constitution?

You're kind of dogging militias, but the Constitution kept them around and minimized the role of a standing army. Can you reassure me that militias aren't going away by pointing to the Constitution?

Can you share what soft power is and how the U.S.'s may be diminishing?

The Constitution was an addition to what, now? "a very similar mindset in regards to matters like this" What matters, exactly?

Two claims. Support or at least explain. He is danger to our institutions is a more provable claim.

Good. Now you can go into whether this was an intended consequence or not.

Where was our trade before the agreement. Oh, and $14.5 million is not much money. It will build a bridge over a small river....

But didn't it take jobs with it? Increasing trade may be good for consumers but bad for workers (who are the same people....)

It will flood the market at first. Then markets will adjust: workers gain new skills as demand for unskilled labor lessens. We are in another phase of globalization brought on by the information revolution. In such times, there is always an impulse to protect outmoded markets from inevitable change. Countries that embrace the change first win.

The world is moving towards strong armies headed by strong executives that command strong central govertnments. Its time we get with the program.

You captured your position well. Make sure you identify which position you are as a title.

Grenache,

I had my students offer corrections for bonus since it was such a good opportunity for them to distinguish between the two documents. Hope you didn't feel bombarded!

The issue of remittances is interesting. Please make an argument based on the outflow of cash and savings from the U.S. economy to the Mexican.
