6. Constitutional Literacy with Michael Farris now Shipping!

This DVD course walks through the constitutional history and legal
theory that are essential to American self-government. In the United
States, loyalty is not a matter of allegiance to a ruler or even to
our homeland. Loyalty is measured by faithfulness to the Constitution.
Join Michael Farris as he explores this critical concept!
