Time to Study the U.S. Constitution

Federal law makes it mandatory for all schools to teach about the Constitution on Constitution Day, which is September 17, or during Constitution Week if it falls on a weekend, as it does this year. It would be a good idea for you to check with your local public school and see how it is planning to comply with this law.

Our U.S. Constitution is the oldest and longest-lasting constitution in all the world's history! Every American should read it to understand why it is the fountainhead of our great liberties — religious, political, and economic. The Constitution is the instrument that has enabled America to grow and prosper, becoming the most powerful country in the world, while at the same time preserving individual freedoms. The American philosophy is that government is the servant of the people, not our master. President Ronald Reagan expressed this concept when he said that government is the problem, not the solution.
Eagle Forum has a splendid teaching tool that is appropriate for schools to use during Constitution Week, and it's a good program for homeschoolers and adults, too. It is a study program on the courts using my book on court decisions called The Supremacists, and it's available free on Eagle Forum's website at www.eagleforum.org. You can download this book's chapters one at a time for individual lessons, one on the religion cases, one on the property rights cases, one on parents rights cases, one on immigration cases, and other topics. The text is easy reading, and each chapter has questions for discussion and supplementary notes.

I highly recommend that you observe Constitution Week by inviting your friends for a series of sessions on what supremacist judges have been doing to our Constitution. Then you will be ready to help us confirm good judges who respect the Constitution the way it was written instead of the way they wish it had been written.
