Centralization of power is known to be a threat to democratic institutions. James Madison stated in Federalist 51, “If a majority be united by a common interest, the rights of the minority will be insecure.” The structure of the U.S. Constitution is designed to prevent one faction, party and/or group from centralizing power thereby ensuring protection for groups, parties or factions who are in the minority. The Constitution has many different features such as, separation of powers, checks and balances, federalism and a bicameral legislature (too name a few) to “contradict power” so that groups are protected. Some critics say that the “contraction of power” causes gridlock and a dysfunctional government. U.S. author and journalist Carl Bernstein said, “Congress is a dysfunctional institution; its broken.” On the other hand, former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia stated that American’s should love separation of powers and the gridlock, which is the main protection of groups in the minority.

Manuscript Conventions
All written assignments must be typed or printed from a computer.
Save a twig: do not use a title page. But do give a title–an apt one.
Include an epigraph, italicized and placed one space below the title, as you see above. Place the (italicized) name of the epigraph’s author on the next line, centered, set off by a dash (not a hyphen).
Place your name in the left margin of the first page, an inch from the top. Below that, state the class name and number (i.e. Poli Sci, 203). Below that line, insert the instructor’s name and, on the next line, the date.
Staple the upper left hand margin of the first page.
For most papers use a standard legible typeface such as Times New Roman, Arial Narrow or Palatino. Acceptable type sizes are 10 or 12 point. (This entry is in Arial Narrow 10).
Number all pages and use Arabic numerals (1, 2, etc.).
Double space. (One-and-a-half spacing is acceptable.) Do not double space between paragraphs. Do not type on both sides of the paper.
Use one-inch margins all around the page. Do not justify margins along the right; keep the right margins raggedy edged, like this page.
Use MLA format when documenting ideas, information or quotations. Document all your sources. Paraphrase any ideas or information you derive from another and always document the source, giving credit for the information or idea. All papers should include a Work Cited page.
Long quotes, those that extend to a third line, are forbidden. Brief quotes (those that do not extend beyond three lines) must be uniformly cited. You can keep most quotations brief, quoting only what is essential.
Avoid slang, clichés and pretentious diction. You can sound intelligent by using simple words.
