In publishing the 85 Federalist essays between 1787 and 1788, John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison hoped to convince Americans who were on the fence or opposed to the new Constitution that it was actually in their interest and that they should vote to ratify it. They also expressed their vision for what government under the federal Constitution would look like.
But, how right or wrong were they about the government that the U.S. Constitution created and that we live with today? In your 200-250 word response this week, please do the following:
1) Choose one of the four Federalist essays from this week: 51 (which discusses checks and balances), 54 (which discusses representation in the legislative branch), 70 (which discusses the executive branch), and 78 (which discusses the judicial branch).
2) Look for a recent news story from the past week that relates to the Federalist essay that you chose in some way (so, a news story relating to checks and balances, the legislative branch, the executive branch, or the judicial branch in some way).
3) In your written response, analyze the extent to which the Federalist essay that you chose helps to explain what is going on in the news story. In other words, how accurately did the author of the Federalist essay describe the government created by the U.S. Constitution?
Your response should use evidence from the Federalist essay and clearly identify the news story, publication date, and media source in your response.
