We need your help (please read through to the end)!
Are you concerned about losing your freedoms due to government overreach? Do you feel like there is nothing you can do to stop the decline of our state and nation into socialism and communism? Would you like to help secure and restore your freedoms in your local community?
You’re not alone! The good news is that there is a way to learn about, to actupon, and to restore and secure your freedoms in our state and country using the foundational principles in our state and national constitutions.
The Institute on the Constitution (IOTC) is undertaking a grassroots effort to develop a course on the Constitution of the State of Tennessee that will teach you how to become a “constitutionist” who knows how to identify and how to take action upon violations of the true laws of the land: our constitutions.
Why is this needed?
Civics education is not given the priority it once was in our society today. Citizens often do not know where their rights come from, where those rights are listed, and what the founders and framers were thinking when they listed those rights. This leads to an uninformed and unprepared citizenry who unknowingly allow governments to overreach their true jurisdictions, such as:
· Executive orders being responded to as if they were laws. The Tennessee Governor’s office has issued 75 executive orders since the beginning of the COVID-19 emergency response, leading to government by mandate (dictatorship) rather than government by rule of law (republicanism).
· Green initiatives being allowed to restrict individual property rights and equal access to public lands in the name of “sustainable development” and “environmentalism”. The U.N. Agenda 2030 and the associated Davos Agenda are socialist/communist agendas that are intruding into all levels of government in the U.S., including here in Tennessee.
· Social justice programs being integrated into public and private school curriculums. These programs indoctrinate students in radical leftist ideals which lead to greater division in the name of equality according to society for all citizens, rather than greater unity in the name of equity according to the rule of law for all citizens.
