“I think myself that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious. Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have. … The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases. The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.”
~ Thomas Jefferson
By Corey Lynn and James White
The Founding Fathers of this nation did us all an incredible favor by outlining our natural, unalienable rights in perhaps one of the greatest documents ever put to pen, the U.S. Constitution. Yes, that long-forgotten document that used to be covered in our elementary school classes (for those of you who are old enough to remember) is still around and is actually making a comeback.
Our guest for this edition of the Solution Series, KrisAnne Hall, is an absolute dynamo with a legal mind that is not only amazing but filled with a voluminous knowledge about the U.S. Constitution and the specific intent of the document’s creators. Hall’s grasp of this nation’s founding documents is second to none, a fact that is easily discernible as you listen to her speak. So, grab a pen and paper and be ready to learn about your nation’s founding, the power of the states, and the power of the people.
