  TransPacific Partnership - TPP


TransPacific Partnership = Mass  Immigration


  “Because foreign treaties are the ‘law of  the  land,’ according to the U.S. Constitution,  any  provision governing our borders and  the flow of  immigrants could not be  overridden or even  modified by Congress. A  new president would be  able to reverse  Obama’s amnesty plan but not  the open-  border provisions of the TPP. The treaty  could lead to the effective repeal of the  specifically enumerated power granted to  Congress in Article 1 of the Constitution to  regulate immigration and naturalization.”

  Both Senator John Cornyn and Senator Ted Cruz voted to give Obama Fast Track Authority to negotiate this trade agreement with no input from the Congress.  This is not in our best interest and is another case of the Senate delegating their responsibility to the executive branch.  Let them know this not the way to represent us.

The Federalist Papers


Written between October 1787 and August 1788, The Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written in defense of the Constitution. Writing under the penname Publius, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay explain the merits of the proposed Constitution, while confronting objections raised by its opponents. Thomas Jefferson described the work as “the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written.” This course will explore major themes of The Federalist Papers, such as the problem of majority faction, separation of powers, and the three branches of government.

A Proper Understanding of K-12 Education: Theory and Practice


The American Founders recognized the central importance of education for the inculcation of the kind of knowledge and character that is essential to the maintenance of free government. For example, the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 states, “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.” This course will consider the older understanding of the purpose of education, the more recent Progressive approach that has become dominant today, and some essential elements of K-12 education.
