John Jay wrote, “Every member of the State ought diligently to read and to study the constitution of his country, and teach the rising generation to be free. By knowing their rights, they will sooner perceive when they are violated, and be the better prepared to defend and assert them.”
George Washington wrote, “A primary object… should be the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important? And what duty more pressing… than communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country?”
Our purpose is to encourage the American people to study the Constitution and other founding documents for themselves so that they can spread that knowledge to future generations. It is crucial that the original intent of the founders be recognized and applied to how our government operates. In order to do that, the American people must be willing to educate themselves. That may seem like a daunting task, but we are here to help.
Below is a list of organizations that are willing to help you get started. Some offer public speaking tips, some provide videos to watch, or simply provide a list of founding documents for your group to read and then discuss. In order to reach our goal of having a Constitutional study group in each county, we are connecting people who wish to host a study group with those that wish to join one. Please fill out the contact information below if you fall into either one of those categories or if you already participate in a Constitutional study group.
“These classes are taught in a way that all ages find compelling and understandable, from middle school to law school. We know, because we have been teaching these classes to people all over America for the last 7 years. Our mission is to light a passion for Liberty through inspiration and education. As Abigail Adams said, the flame is kindled and like Lightning it catches from Soul to Soul.”
These Constitution Study Groups don’t cost money. We supply the founding documents (corresponding videos coming soon), you supply the venue and the people. Read one founding document between study groups, then watch the corresponding video, then have discussion time. If questions come up that you can’t answer, let us know. We will find you the answers!
At the Institute on the Constitution (IOTC) our mission is to restore our American Founding Fathers’ Biblical, Constitutional, American View of law and government. This American View can be summed up in these words: “There is a God, our rights come from him and the purpose of civil government is to protect our God-given rights.” We believe that fidelity to this American View is crucial to the preservation of Liberty. IOTC was established in 2004 by former Presidential Candidate Michael Anthony Peroutka and has graduates of our U.S. Constitution Course in all 50 States!
