Quick question: What’s the supreme law of the land? If you said “Constitution,” you’re right, and you answered better than most Americans, according to a Newsweek poll in which 70 percent of adults gave the wrong answer.
It seems that few in America know much about the Constitution anymore, and that even those who do claim knowledge of it – such as President Obama — are attacking it.
On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio, we talk to constitutional expert John Eidsmoe, who sets the record straight on where the Constitution stands on a host of current topics, from Obama’s executive orders to NSA surveillance to war declarations.
- What he believes the Founding Fathers would think about the current state of America.
- Whether the Founding Fathers were, as some claim, deists.
- His surprising views on Thomas Jefferson’s faith.
- Why both sides get it wrong when they debate whether America was founded as a “Christian nation.”
Despite all the bad news of the day, Eidsmoe says we still have plenty of reasons to be proud to be Americans. Listen as Eidsmoe — a constitutional professor and attorney and the author of 12 books – tells us why.
