One of the most important things that we as Americans can do is to inform ourselves. To learn about how the Founding Fathers derived the near perfect balance of government in the US Constitution and how that balance has been shifted over the course of time is a lesson we must all understand. The National Center For Constitutional Studies is a great place to start. They offer numerous resources and can also provide training classes at your church.
About the National Center for Constitutional Studies
The National Center for Constitutional Studies is a nonprofit educational foundation created to teach the U.S. Constitution in the tradition of America's Founding Fathers. Founded in 1971 by Dr. W. Cleon Skousen, NCCS has taught thousands of families throughout America the original principles and ideas drafted by our Founding Fathers over 220 years ago.
Our purpose is to help build the dynamic culture of liberty and union which the Founders sought to secure for themselves and their posterity. We gratefully acknowledge, as they did, that America and its Constitution were established by the hand of God; and thus we advocate morality and religious principles as the essential foundation of human happiness and freedom.
In the final years of his life, Thomas Jefferson called upon the American people to "preserve inviolate [the] Constitution, which [if] cherished in all its chastity and purity, will prove in the end a blessing to all the nations of the earth." We believe that as we learn and implement the sound principles taught by our Founding Fathers, America's divine stewardship as a beacon of liberty to all mankind will yet be fulfilled.
Our educational curriculums are used in many schools (private and public) and homes across the country. They are designed to teach the foundation principles, in such a way, to allow an informed citizenry to make their own decisions regarding the best application of the principles. We believe that correct policies always grow out of correct principles.
Funding for our work is provided by donations from modern-day patriots who are dedicated to strengthening America by spreading the message of freedom. All contributions to NCCS are tax-deductible under Internal Revenue Code section 501[c] (3).
