redhot, I can see you feel strongly, but surely you will agree that Trump also has a problem with staying on topic and elevating the debate. Please don't follow his example and try to contribute to the conversation we are having.

Additionally, I came across a phrase today, "virtue signaling." Going off and showing righteous indignation is a hollow way to seem to be doing right.

I hope you are doing real good in the real world and not just signaling.

In what way is Russia nearly as powerful as the U.S.? I'd like to hear about their regional interests (including the Middle East) and how they jive with ours. You could use Iran as an example....

At least the U.S. has a set of values, backed by our founding documents and centuries of a government bound by legal procedure and democratic norms. I'd rather be in a hypocrite nation (welcome to the human race) than in a revaunchist, mercenary state with the blood of millions on its hands.

We stand for human rights and therefore can't stand with Russia! What human rights violations has Russia committed that offends U.S. democratic sensibilities?

You have to show where and how we would not ignore them. Ukraine?

Expensive in what way? The cost seems to have been in giving Russians a very bad taste for democracy.

Good. But how would you support them? Arm them? Fund anti-Russian campaigns. What did we do in the Ukraine in 2004?

What part of the Const. do you see the framers trying to get enlightened leaders in the top positions of power?

This is solid. Good work, quietkillah. You use the terminology of the study--"enumerated" "commerce clause". Try to use the idea of implied powers.....

What part of the new gov't would most resemble the tyrannical Great Britain? You pointed to the elastic clause, but should have pointed to a new creation of the federal constitution.

RuffDespera, you got to clean this up. You contradict yourself. You're saying your proposal would kill the economy and tyrannize the minority. Rework!

where, in his words, does Brutus say the rich will rule? show his reasoning.

But you didn't show why the country needs a central government. What did Hamilton argue? Madison? (use the Google)

But the Constitution creates undemocratic institutions. Name two and argue why that's ok that parts of the government are not democratic.

8 points

Point to the language in the Articles that suggests that states are more like allies than they are parts of one unified government.

8 points

Show us how the Constitution filters good leaders from the rest!
