    Google the following terms:
    purpose of Federalist papers
    judicial activism and Constitution
    John Locke's social contract and the First amendment
    US Congress Standing committees

    Thanks Bobpursley.

    A key is in the second question: "use examples from your textbook." Do what bobpursley suggests, and also reread your textbook, which also explains these concepts. Reread with these specific questions in mind.
