1. Are we doing enough to Americanize children and immigrants to America? Given that political socialization is the key to sustaining important political virtues and attitudes,

Research two sides to these general questions about political socialization for America s future.
2. Is America liberal or conservative? Provide arguments supporting either label.
3. Research arguments for both centralization and decentralization in government. How much centralization is necessarily incompatible with federalism? Is decentralization always necessitated by federalism?
