At the heart of the constitutional debate was the issue of federal government vs. state government. Do you believe in a strong national government, as James Madison argued in the Federalist Papers, or do you believe in stronger states’ rights, such as Thomas Jefferson supported? You will argue your opinion of these questions by completing the following:
1- Choose one of the following topics:
· Gun control
· Health care
· Marijuana, et al
If you would like to write on a different topic, just send me an email letting me know what you choose.
2- Research the following arguments:
WHY should this be a federal (national) issue?
WHY should this be a state issue?
Present both sides in your paper. Be sure to use the Constitution as your basis for each side: WHY, according to the Constitution, should this issue be federal or state?
3- Choose the side you agree with and explain why you think that issue is best under national or state authority.
