*How is the South different from other regions of the United States? What kind of issues are most important to Southern voters? How does this affect national politics? What other regional political predispositions can you think of? How important do you think regional issues are in modern politics?
*Do you agree or disagree with Colin Kaepernick and the other NFL players decision to kneel during the national anthem? Is this act unpatriotic? Is their stance protected under the Bill of Rights?

*What are the express powers of the President as laid out in the constitution? How have these been expanded in the years since the Constitution was written? What are executive orders? What is executive privilege? What role does the President play in the national budget procedure? Are there limits to these powers, and if so what are they? Does the President have the kind of power often associated with office in the public mind? Why does this â€œillusion of Presidential governmentâ€ exist?

*In reading about Mut’a marriage, the most important thing to remember is that there is no true equivalent of this arrangement in Western societies, which is why the subject of Mut’a is somewhat difficult for many students to grasp. Many students feel that Mut’a could be a good institution if ,and only if, it is properly regulated; otherwise, it is far too probable that it would be abused — both by men seeking sex, and by women who want to live off the dowries they earn through the Mut’a. Despite the fact that Mut’a is said to be just as valid as a long-term marriage, many people believe that it exists to serve those who want to enjoy the benefits of marriage (i.e., sex for men and financial security for women), without making an actual commitment to one another. Others see the Mut’a in many ways a glorified form of prostitution. Many others disagree and see the Mutâ€™a as legal marriage and kids born in a temporary marriage are legitimate kids and have same rights and duties of children out of permanent marriage
