Local Constitutional Classes

Patriots,
 

Want to learn about or freshen up on key concepts of our American Constitution and the principles behind our Republic?  Election time is just around the corner and its the perfect time to refresh your knowledge on these ideals and truths to assist you in your candidate selection.  Eastern Oregon Patriots will host a series of classes on the Constitution.The classes will be held in a video lecture then live discussion format to be led by Mike Burton.

 

The classes will cover some of these key points:
– What the framers of the constitution understood about the document they were writing, especially its fundamentals.
– Why a fundamental feature of the American Constitution is the separation of powers.
– Why the key to a republican form of government is the vibrancy, size and independence of this private society.

 

The series will be held 7 p.m., January 17, 24, 31,  and February 7
at the Misner Conference Room, 1001 4th, LaGrande.
