Discussion Questions: What are some of the essential elements of Federalism? Why are they essential? Why did the drafters of the Constitution establish three branches of the national government? How do those branches interact? What if there were no federal government? Federalism is done so that no one has too much power. This is an interesting point if "true." Do others agree? Before forming your opinion please consider the following information. The Constitution has a Supremacy Clause, which states in pertinent part that where state and federal law conflict, federal law dictates or is supreme. With the Supremacy Clause in mind, how does one sovereign, specifically the federal government, not have too much power? Is it possible that the Supremacy Clause contributes to the conflict between state rights and a strong federal government? Please consider and respond to the following. Yes, the states have the power to make some decisions, but the states also have to abide by Federal law. For example, in a major court decision, Yick Wo v. Hopkins, California wanted permit restrictions on laundries. Many of those laundries were owned and operated by people of Asian decent. As a result, the United States Supreme Court (USSC) determined that the permit regulation had an unfair impact on Asian people and declared the law unconstitutional. California had a reason for the law (safety and stated it was not racial) and felt justified, but the USSC said differently and California had to adapt to the USSC decision. Does this type of control contribute to the on-going divide between those for and against a strong national government? Focus on the control in your response and not the actually USSC decision.

Discussion Questions: How did the Civil War amendments change America? How has the United States Supreme Court impacted the status of African American people in the United States? Pay particular attention to the Dred Scott, Plessy v. Ferguson, and Brown v. Topeka, Kansas Board of Education decisions. One of the major political parties controls one or both Houses of Congress How could such a party split among the three branches of government contribute to the interactions, or potentially create conflict, among the three branches of government?

Racism, classism, and all other ism's Everyone, Racism, classism, and all other ism's are often ingrained in people. What did the Civil Rights Act do to change how people felt?
