Discussion No. 2: Principles of the Founding
Need a 300-word response + citations for the following question.
What were the primary principles of the American Founding? How, and where, in the Founding, do you see them? Do you think the current government of the United States is consistent or inconsistent with the principles of the American Founding? What about the Democratic and Republican parties? How? Use current events to substantiate your answer.
Remember to identify your sources. An in-text citation requires a parenthetical citation, for example: (Smith). Then, provide a formal citation at the end of your posting.
Be sure to fully explain your position, citing a high-quality source as evidence, in addition to the textbook (https://openstax.org/details/books/american-government-3e). Wikipedia, an online blog, and similar items are examples of unacceptable sources on the collegiate level. Again, each student is expected to utilize high-quality sources (academic journals, scholarly articles, current laws/policies, court cases, etc.), in addition to the textbook.
