Over time the average American has forgotten, if he ever knew, much of the U.S. Constitution, how it came to be and what it holds for all Americans. Owensby takes us back to those years when the founders of our nation and the framers of the Constitution put the wellbeing of the citizen above politics and brought America to greatness. Now, that is threatened and a look back may well be of service.

The United States Constitution, or as it was properly named "The Constitution for the United States of America" became the guiding light for a number of confused, misguided and misled North American colonies. That light led the way to those colonies uniting into a vibrant nation, replete with personal liberty, freedom and god-given individual rights. A close look at how the country was founded, how it grew into greatness that has never been matched and what steps need to be taken to get the United States back onto the path that destiny intended, a path to remain the beacon of freedom for the rest of the world, a bastion of strength in a time of turmoil.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Theorie und Ideengeschichte, Note: 2,0, Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg, Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar: Direkte Demokratie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im zweiten Teil seines Werks „The Theory of Democracy Revisited“ (1992) beschäftigt sich Sartori mit den klassischen demokratietheoretischen Aspekten. In den Kapiteln 9 bis 12 liefert Sartori eine ausführliche Klärung und Herleitung der zentralen Begriffe Demokratie, Individualität, Freiheit, Autonomie, Recht bzw. Gesetz und Gleichheit. Dabei hangelt er sich von einem Begriff zum nächsten und zeigt so die Zusammenhänge und Verbindungen der Begrifflichkeiten auf. Besondere Schwerpunkte setzt er auf die Unterscheidung von antiker zu moderner Demokratie und auf die Definition und das Problem der Gleichheit und Gleichbehandlung. Ab Kapitel 13 gibt Sartori einen kurzen Überblick über die politischen Strömungen, Demokratie, Liberalismus, Sozialismus und Kommunismus in Europa und Amerika mit Schwerpunkt auf der Entwicklung und die Begriffsgeschichte des Liberalismus, um dann in Kapitel 14 Kapitalismus und Ökonomie als neue Betrachtungspunkte mit dem Vorhergehenden zu verknüpfen. In Kapitel 15 thematisiert Sartori Alternativentwürfe zu liberaler Demokratie, indem er auf die Demokratievorstellungen von Rousseau, Marx und Lenin eingeht. Im letzten Kapitel geht es Sartori um die Unterscheidung zwischen Ideologie und Idee und um den Wert von Idealen, der für ihn entscheidend ist und aus der Entwicklung guter Ideen entsteht, die auf einer stichhaltigen Argumentation und Beweisführung gründen. Der Aufbau bei Manfred Schmidt ist besonders systematisch und nach chronologischer Ordnung gestaltet. Im ersten Teil seines Buchs „Demokratietheorien. Eine Einführung“ (3. Aufl., 2000) betrachtet er die klassische Phase der Demokratietheorien, die für ihn die Zeit vor der Ausbreitung von demokratisch verfassten Flächenstaaten markiert. Angefangen bei Aristoteles und seiner Lehre der Staatsverfassungen im ersten Kapitel, fasst Schmidt im zweiten Kapitel Hobbes als Kritiker der Demokratie und Locke als frühliberalen Konstitutionalisten zusammen. Montesquieu behandelt Schmidt im dritten Kapitel ausführlich als Ideengeber für gemäßigte Demokratie. [...]

On 16 September 1963 Malaysia came into being with the accession of Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore to the existing Federation of Malaya. This book marks the 50th anniversary of this notable event in South East Asia’s history. The focus of the book will be mainly on the experience of Sabah and Sarawak as subjects of the federation. It looks at the experience of federalism from a number of different perspectives, keeping in mind not just the effects of federalism on Sabah and Sarawak but also the effects on the federation as a whole. Has the bargain of 1963 been adhered to? Has Malaysian federalism been a successful example of this form of government in Asia, or has the bargain been undermined in ways contrary to the original deal in the Malaysia Agreement of 1963? What have been the practical effects on East Malaysia during 50 years?

Glenn Beck revisited Thomas Paine’s famous pre-Revolutionary War call to action in his #1 New York Times bestseller Glenn Beck’s Common Sense. Now he brings his historical acumen and political savvy to this fresh, new interpretation of The Federalist Papers, the 18th-century collection of political essays that defined and shaped our Constitution and laid bare the “original argument” between states’ rights and big federal government—a debate as relevant and urgent today as it was at the birth of our nation. Adapting a selection of these essential essays—pseudonymously authored by the now well-documented triumvirate of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay—for a contemporary audience, Glenn Beck has had them reworked into “modern” English so as to be thoroughly accessible to anyone seeking a better understanding of the Founding Fathers’ intent and meaning when laying the groundwork of our government. Beck provides his own illuminating commentary and annotations and, for a number of the essays, has brought together the viewpoints of both liberal and conservative historians and scholars, making this a fair and insightful perspective on the historical works that remain the primary source for interpreting Constitutional law and the rights of American citizens.

Scholarly Research Paper from the year 2005 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 1,7, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (Finanzwissenschaften), course: The reform of federalism, 30 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The term federalism derives from the Latin word "foedus" and is rendered in the words "alliance" and "treaty" or "agreement." Federalism describes a national form of organization consisting of at least two members, who are joined together by means of a voluntary agreement or treaty into a unitary state having its own national characteristics,1 but without discarding the distinctive national attributes. Through this coalition the individual / federal states surrender their jurisdiction and individual powers to the unitary state. In return, the federal system makes sure that the unitary state and the individual states control and assist each other mutually when fulfilling their obligations.2 Federalism is especially characterized in that assignments, revenues and expenses are distributed on several national levels.3 Furthermore, federalism must safeguard a certain unit from a (foreign) political, economic, military and socially cultural point of view.4 Basically, federalism implements an equilibrium between decentralization and centralization.5 Aided by expenses and the division of assignments, revenues and expenditure, an optimal allocation is put from theory into practice.6 In Germany, the 16 federal states (Lander) make up the federal state, the German Federal Republic. Powers to and responsibility for national assignments in the government and governmental management, legislation and the administration of justice is divided between the federal state and the individual states. The German constitution ensures that in addition to this vertical division between the federal and the individual states' authorities, a horizontal division of powers exists between the legislative, executive and judic"
