Chapter 4 Discussion – 200 words


In textbook chapter 4 you learned about different legislative acts passed by British Parliament that impacted the American colonies, in addition to the ways colonists responded to that legislation. Both the British and the colonists felt as though their actions were justified.
 

If your last name begins with M-Z, you are an American colonist. Explain why the legislative acts are unnecessary and unjustified.
 

Post your response on the discussion board, supporting your position by citing information from scholarly, academic, or educational sources other than the course textbook. 


Chapter 8 Discussion – 200 words


In America’s early years as a nation, a debate erupted over how the U.S. Constitution was to be interpreted. Some Americans, like Alexander Hamilton, believed in a loose construction—Congress could establish laws, as long as the Constitution did not specifically prohibit those laws. Others, like Thomas Jefferson, believed in a strict construction—Congress could only enact those laws that the Constitution specifically authorized.

 

If your last name begins with M-Z, you are a strict constructionist.

 Post your response on the discussion board, supporting your position by citing information from scholarly, academic, or educational sources other than the course textbook. Your response should also include information regarding at least one current event that you feel supports your position (e.g., the mortgage crisis, the bank bailouts, Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security, etc.). Then read and reply to at least two classmates’ posts that oppose your position (i.e., loose constructionists reply to strict constructionists and vice versa). State the points with which you agree and those with which you disagree, as well as your reasons.
