two greatest dangers to American prosperity.

I just need a reply to this it doesn’t have to be long maybe 4- 8 sentences.
The main point in George Washington’s Farewell Address that resonates with me is when he discussed the two greatest dangers to American prosperity.  I personally feel those are still two of the greatest dangers to America.  I feel we have abandoned those hopes, because we are making treaties and agreements with foreign countries.  We are militarizing foreign countries, giving them equipment, training, gear, and war strategies that could possibly be used against us.
With the Articles of Confederation, the Founding Fathers wanted to create a new model of government rather than amending the one that was already in existence.  With the Constitution, they felt it was necessary to have so that it would make our government stronger as it was laid out in the Article of Confederation.  I established our government and guaranteed some basic rights for citizens.  Hamilton wanted to make sure the states were represented fairly, so he voted for the Constitution because he felt it would give us a centralized government.
I personally do not feel like anything should be held against our Founding Fathers.  They should be viewed with more understanding based on the history that surrounded them during those times.  However, I will say I think someone could have stepped away from what was considered “popular” or “the norm” and did what was right at that time.  Break the mold and listen to all the “constituents” not just a certain class of people.
Overall, I would have to say George Washington is who I would have chosen most important to creation of this great workable nation.  In my opinion he truly laid a foundation and left an actually “blueprint” that we are still using and maneuvering through today.  He tried giving us incite into what not to do, to keep America in a prosperous position.  I feel we have gone away from that and as a result we are slowly losing our title as the richest nation in the land.  Alexander Hamilton was very interesting to me because he is the found of our financial system.

Think carefully about the following two questions and write one essay each in response. Be sure to include primary and secondary source material in your analysis, especially all of our readings and lectures/class discussions up to this point. Each essay should be between 3-4 typed pages (no larger than font 12, New Times Roman) and counts 50 points for a total of 100.

Good Luck.
1) How do the mytho-historical accounts of the Ancient Hebrews reflect the clash between monotheistic and polytheistic beliefs among them? Did monotheism come into existence fully formed and uncontested or did it have to coexist with polytheism for a long time? Focus on the narratives of Abraham in Ur/Mesopotamia and Moses at Mt. Sinai, as well as his reception by the Hebrews when he returned with the tablets. Make sure to include Yahweh and Baal in your explanation. What do these stories tell us about the religious beliefs and practices of the various peoples who lived in those regions during the Bronze and Iron Ages? Related to this: should historians take these and similar mytho-historical accounts from different cultures and time periods uncritically at face value? If not, how can we sort out “what actually happened” and at least begin to separate “history” from “mythology” in any systematic and methodical fashion?
2) How does Neil Faulkner compare and contrast the types of states and societies that developed during the Bronze Age and the Iron Age? Focus on the connections between the material and technological foundations of such states & societies, as well as the socio-economic, cultural, and political structures within them, as they evolved during those “Ages.”
I would like for each paper to be separate please and thank you

In this week’s module, you learned about the events that fractured the political

In this week’s module, you learned about the events that fractured the political connections between England and its North American colonies, ultimately resulting in the independence of the United States of America. Simply put, England’s North American colonies increasingly felt wronged by English legislation following the French and Indian War. The primary source Franklin, Testimony Against the Stamp Act  Download Franklin, Testimony Against the Stamp Act from 1765 provides some insight into the colonial mindset. In the primary source, Benjamin Franklin, a colonial resident of Pennsylvania, responds to questions asked to him by the English Parliament.
In this discussion assignment, you are required to do the following in your initial reply (reply to the bolded questions):
The Parliament asks Franklin the following question: “What was the temper of America towards  [England] before the year 1763?”
What is Franklin’s response to the Parliament’s question?
What does Franklin’s answer reveal about the relationship that the colonists believe they have with England?
The Parliament later asks Franklin about the colonial opinion of the Stamp Act, specifically, and direct taxation, in general.
What does Franklin say is the colonial opinion of the Stamp Act?
What does Franklin say is the colonial opinion of direct taxation by the Parliament?
What do Franklin’s responses reveal about the relationship that the colonists believe they have with England?
Your initial response is due by 11 PM
By 11 PM on Saturday you are required to respond to two classmates. In your peer response, you will either agree or disagree with your classmates’ answers to the question “What do Franklin’s responses reveal about the relationship that the colonists believe they have with England?” Please explain why you agree/disagree.
You may want to refer to the English Rights webpage to help support the point(s) you make.

So Long to Taney In the wake of the 2017 Charlottesville, VA protests, Maryland

So Long to Taney
In the wake of the 2017 Charlottesville, VA protests, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan reversed his earlier position on the statue of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney and ordered its removal from Annapolis. Taney, the same justice who provided the majority opinion for the notorious Dred Scott decision sat in seemingly undisturbed thought outside of the Maryland State House for over a 100 years. And while the statue’s overnight removal did draw some crowds, it was relatively uneventful.
Review the above hyperlink and either of the following news articles that focused on the statue’s removal:
What is your reaction to the removal of Taney’s statue? Given what you have learned this week concerning the Dred Scott decision and Taney’s role during the increasingly tumultuous 1850s, do you agree with this decision? Taney was one of the first Supreme Court justices to oppose unchecked corporate power in the U.S., does the removal of his statue overlook this fact? Do you think the removal of Taney was just an attempt to stop another Charlottesville from happening, or that it represents a genuine attempt for the U.S. today to confront its past?
In case you would like a refresher on the 2017 Charlottesville protests, I suggest reviewing the following sites:
