Date: January, 2017

Time: TBD


I am going to be giving free seminars on the Constitution in Las Cruces, Alamogordo, and Ruidoso.  The purpose of the seminars is to help citizens be better citizens, and to understand what the Constitution was supposed to say, how past and present courts have interpreted it, and what went wrong.

Our first seminar will be in January, 2017, in Las Cruces, Alamogordo, and Ruidoso.
