    28)Discuss the economic policy of protectionism. What are its advantages and disadvantages?
    29) What is the government's role in stabilizing the economy?
    The government can so a couple of things to stablize the economy. one example is what they are doing with the current problem of being in a recession. They have sent out checks to families in hope that they will go out and spend it to boost the economy a little bit. They have also lowered the interest rates so that people can afford to take out big loans so they can buy houses, whose market has also slowed down with the economy.
    30) What is the economics of government environmental regulation?
    31) Identify and illustrate the types of policies the federal government has used to influence the general health of the economy and discuss the current debate about those policies.

    ...
    Compare and contrast dual federalism and cooperative federalism. What are the standard operating procedures for cooperative federalism? Dual federalism was before the great depression and the new deal. It is the belief that having separate and equally powerful levels of government is the best arrangement; the analogy is the layered cake. After the new deal it changed to cooperative federalism which is the relationship between national and state governments starting with the new deal; its analogy is the marble cake. States started to take a secondary role in governement and federal grants started to grow.
    Define what is meant by "fiscal federalism." How is it manifested through the federal grant system? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each of the different types of grants? Fiscal federalism is the use of the national government taxing and spending policies to influence the overall economy. In the grant system the national government gives the state money to be used on something spacific. An example of a good grant was the Morrel Land Grant of 1862 which gave each state 30,000 acres of puplic land for each representative in congress. Catagorical grants are used for spacific purposes that are chosen by congress which could help or the money could be used on something unneeded.
    ...
    federal aid? States will attempt to obtain federal money through lobbying. Lobbyists can provide Congressmen with political support if the Congressmen support projects that would increase state revenue, like museum projects or stadium construction or better transportation systems. State residents will try to elect officials who support pork barrel spending. Additionally, states may try to obtain federal funding for education through testing related to the No Child Left Behind act. States do not want aid in categorical grants for projects which they do not find important and are merely driven by power-hungry politicians.
    To what extent has the new Republican majority, first elected in mid 1990s, limited the scope of government? enhanced it? Too bad we took the majority back!!! =)
    What are the advantages and disadvantages to democracy under a federal system? If you were drafting the Constitution today, would you opt to continue federalism or try something else? Explain.

    ...
    The first Civil Rights Act was passed in 1866 by Congress over President Andrew Johnson's veto to guarantee egual rights under the Constitiution to African Americans. This act granted blacks full citizenship and overturned the Dred Scott decision. The campaign to give blacks full rights as citizens started after the civil war, but continues to this day. The acts established to give them these rights not only helped the black communities, but also established precedence for other minorities wishing to gain rights as citizens.
    In recent news as civil liberty case has been heard where a boy wrote "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" and a school event. This case was shown to the Supreme Court to find out if writing "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" is an action of free speech or is just too unexpectable for school grounds. The Supreme Court ruled that this doesn’t apply to the Bill of Rights First Amendment, Freedom of Speech

    provide one. This comes from the text: "the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury...the Assistance of Counsel for his defence."
    Miranda rights were established after the arrest of Ernesto Miranda in 1963 for kidnapping of a woman. While he was arrested, he made a confession without being informed that he had the right to remain silent or to seek counsel from an attorney when being questioned by police. As such, the police used that confession as evidence in his conviction and led him to prison. Miranda later went to the Supreme Court to overturn his conviction in the fact that his rights were not told to him. The Supreme Court overturned his conviction and Miranda was tried in a new trial, where he received a lighter sentence. This led to "Miranda Rights" in being established.
