There are apparently at least two schools of Constitutional thinking teaching contradictory things. How else can you explain virtually EVERY decision is 5/4?

My son took this class a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Mike Farris is great and he’s got a great sense of humor.

I am working my way through the Heritage Guide to the Constitution, and yes, as most of us know: it is “originalist vs. living”.

Those of us who are true Constitutionalists, of course, support originalist intent.

I am in the middle of it right now...I have already learned a whole lot, and highly recommend it for kids and adults. The reading is quite intense, so be sure you have a good reader, or someone w/the patience to re-read material.
