Most likely, you are where I was. When it came to the U.S. Constitution, I was ignorant and apathetic. I didn’t know what it said, and I really didn’t care. I freely admit I learned more about the Constitution from School House Rock (a Saturday morning cartoon) than in 12 years of school.
That changed when I accepted a challenge from John Jay, one of our Founding Fathers, and read the Constitution for myself. When I realized how much I did not know, I decided to read more, but when I found out how much of what I had been taught about the Constitution was wrong, I went from simply reading to studying and sharing the supreme law of the land.
I started with a small study in my home town, but the more I learned, the more I felt called to share with others. Now, after two years of work, my new book, The Constitution Study is ready.
- There are lots of different tools you can use to protect your rights. Learn about some of them on page 56.
- Federal law is supreme in all cases, right? WRONG! Learn about the Supremacy Clause and how to use it on page 282.
- The one thing you should NEVER do when you enter the voting booth. (Hint: It’s the one thing you’re told to do almost every election cycle.)
- When it’s OK to let your elected representative “off the hook”. (Hint: It’s never OK. And you will see why as you read this book.)
- Why even though you may have read the Constitution, you need to spend time studying it.
- There are lots of reasons we declared independence in 1776. Learn about them starting on page 35.
- Congress can enact any legislation they can get passed, right? WRONG! Learn about the limits of Congressional power on page 164.
- The one thing you must NEVER do if you wish to live in a free country. (Hint: It’s the one thing most everyone assumes is necessary.)
