Power in the Constitution

Is our American form of government intended to be limited and narrowly defined in its scope or was it supposed to be unlimited and unrestrained in its reach? We explore the five clauses of the Constitution most often misinterpreted and abused: The General Welfare Clause, The Necessary and Proper Clause, The Interstate Commerce Clause, Treaty Law, and the Supremacy Clause. Then we look at modern day examples of this abuse and misinterpretation. View sample clip HERE

Checks and Balances in the Constitution

One of the most unique and important elements of our Constitution is its system of checks and balances. We know the Constitution balances the strengths of each branch against each other but do we recognize the power the Constitution gives to the states to allow them the necessary check on Federal power? The intricate and precise checks and balances in the Constitution are incredibly interwoven into the structure of our government to allow the necessary powers for government to fulfill its proper role while at the same time checking the power of any one level or branch of government from usurping the Constitutionally-defined role of the others. In this presentation we’ll get a closer look at what the Constitution actually says about checks and balances and we will come to a deeper understanding of a subject we thought we already knew.

Education in the Constitution

The founders preached the necessity for education and schools in order to have an informed electorate who could remain free by understanding their Constitutional freedoms, by voting intelligently, and by scrutinizing the actions and positions of their elected leaders. But, how did they intend education to be implemented? Once again, the Constitution gives us insight into the important topic of education. And, true principles of freedom found therein guide our effort to educate ourselves and our youth. Significant time in the presentation is devoted to exploring the Federal “Common Core” and contrasting it with Constitutional principles of education.View sample clip HERE

Article V in the Constitution

All 27 of the amendments to the Constitution have been proposed by Congress. Why has a convention of the States for proposing amendments never even been tried? And, why are conservative voices and leaders renewing the push to call a convention? Is it safe? Do we really want to open up our Constitution to a convention where it could be completely dismantled? And, if we aren’t following the Constitution now, why would we believe new amendments to the Constitution would be followed? These and many other questions will be discussed in this presentation as we once again find out that the answer lies in the Constitution.View sample clip HERE

Gun Control in the Constitution

A bad name for a Constitutional presentation? Of course. But upon further review, it is clear that gun control issues are prevalent in the Constitution – and not only in the 2nd amendment. We look at the God-given right of self-defense through the eyes of the founders and through the perspective of history to gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the idea that he who has the gun has the control. We then identify keys to ensuring that this right is protected and not infringed.View sample clip HERE

Money in the Constitution

With a national debt at over $18 trillion and unfunded liabilities over $100 trillion, the question begs being asked, “How did we get ourselves into such a mess?” It shouldn’t be surprising to learn that the founding fathers and the Constitution provided the solution and still have the solution to return us to solid financial ground and sound monetary policy. We will also explore in depth the Federal Reserve and the concept of inflation and what specific steps we can take to return sanity to our money in the United States.View sample clip HERE

Economics in the Constitution

All are in agreement that our economy is suffering. But, why did this happen and how can we return it to stable ground? We explore 10+ clauses from the Constitution and quotes from the founding fathers that help us see that they understood very clearly the basic principles of economic freedom and enshrined them into our Constitution to ensure our economy, and therefore our nation, would remain strong and vibrant.View sample clip HERE

Property Rights in the Constitution

Our founders felt very strongly about the role of private property in preserving our liberty so they enshrined the principles of private ownership and private control of property into our Constitution. Many believe that the Constitution is silent on such issues and is unclear at best as to government’s proper role with regard to private property. We learn otherwise as we explore various clauses of the Constitution which establish private property as one of the key pillars of freedom in our country.View sample clip HERE

Rights in the Constitution

We correctly acknowledge that our country was founded on the principle that we have God-given, unalienable rights and that government’s proper role is constrained to protecting those rights. So, what are those rights? Do we have the “right” to have our government do certain things for us and does that “right” have anything to do with the moral code of right and wrong? As we study the Constitution and Declaration of Independence we will look more closely at some very fundamental principles contained in those two marvelous documents in order to see more clearly what is – and what is not – the proper role of government.View sample clip HERE

Democracy in the Constitution

Are we a democracy or a republic? And, what’s the difference? It may surprise you to know that the word “democracy” was never used in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution – and with good reason. Our founders deplored democracies and understood them for the danger that they are to freedom. In this presentation we will discover what the founders and the Constitution have to say about democracies and why the founders wisely set up a republic to guarantee and preserve our God-given rights.View sample clip HERE

War in the Constitution

We are aware that the welfare state is crippling to the welfare recipient and to those who are forced to uphold such a debilitating system through their tax dollars. But what about the warfare state? Does it also cause more problems than it solves? What can history teach us about our war, national defense, and foreign policy outlook? Better yet, what does the Constitution and what did our founding fathers warn us to avoid and did they put specific safeguards in place into the Constitution to avoid such a warfare state? There is much to learn as we explore the very current and important issue of war.View sample clip HERE
