US History October 9, 2008 Topic: In Federalist 51, what did Madison present as the most efficient way of governing the nation? How did his way address his thesis in No. 10? James Madison begins this federalist paper by explaining that the purpose of this essay is to assist in the understanding of how his suggested government should be structured to make liberty as unrestrained as possible. Madison believed that in a republic, the power should be shared among separate branches, and those branches have to check the other branches, and using a republic would be the best way to insure liberty and prevent destruction. In Madison’s essay, two topics are discussed, separation of powers, and checks and balances, this system that we have been using ever since. Madison stated that the public would elect all branches of government. All the powers would remain separate and that they would not overlap one another, so one group of people would not become too powerful. Madison and the other Founding Fathers

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
