Hour 2

Michael Badnarik

After four and a half years of acting as caregiver for my aging parents, I AM FINALLY RETURNING TO TEXAS!

To celebrate, I am going on tour around the country to offer my eight hour Constitution class anywhere I can find students who are interested in our founding documents. The class runs from 9:00am to 6:00pm with a one hour lunch break. The cost has been reduced to only $100 until the end of March. You can click here to find an up to date list of cities and locations where you can take the class. 

Unless otherwise specified, please call me at 512-461-0995if you want to register for a class, or if you'd like to help organizing a class in your town. Please read the instructions for organizing a class before you call.



Topics Discussed...

Introduction to the Constitution a fundamental explanation of the philosophy of Liberty

This eight-hour class will be a life-changing experience, even if you consider yourself knowledgeable about our founding documents. Class begins at 9:00am and continues until 6:00pm with a one-hour break for lunch, and occasional breaks throughout the day. After class, Michael is usually joined at dinner by students who ask questions until they are too exhausted to keep going.

Each student receives an autographed copy of Good to be King, which is used as the text for the class. The class is valued at $300 or more, however students may attend for only $150, or 4 ounces of .999 fine silver. This is an incredible bargain for a $20 hardcover book, 8 hours of instruction, and several additional hours of personal interaction with the "Stepfather of the Constitution".

Course outline:

• Class begins with a sobering reality check demonstrating that much of what you think you know about the Constitution is wrong.

• The core of this class is a discussion about the difference between rights and privileges. Using information the students know to be true, Michael helps them draw the conclusion that "property" is the one-word answer to every question about the Constitution. Students soon realize that rights and responsibilities are as inseparable as heads and tails on a coin.

• An examination of different forms of government helps students understand that communism isn't just another option, it is the antithesis of our cherished Constitution.

• A 20 minute review of the American Revolution helps students rediscover their passion for freedom, making it clear that losing our Liberty is not an acceptable option.

• Eventually, an examination of the Constitution, Article by Article, and Section by Section, leads any thinking individual to the startling conclusion that most of what our government does is unconstitutional! This is unconscionable and totally unacceptable!

• Finally, each of the Bill of Rights is examined and explained to students now eager to protect these valuable ideals as the birthright that they are.

• Class concludes (usually too soon for students who now wish the class was much longer than scheduled) with a brief quiz that helps students measure just how much they've absorbed in a very short time.

• The evening continues with questions over dinner and drinks for as long as students are willing to stay awake.

Hour 3 -- Carla Gericke (Free State Project) on Liberty Forum 2016


Hour 3

Carla Gericke

Carla Gericke (aka "Queen Quill") is a liberty activist, writer, and speaker. She is president of the Free State Project, and lives in New Hampshire.

Carla Gericke, JD, MFA, aka "Queen Quill," was born in the police state of South Africa and immigrated to California after winning a green card in the lottery. She practiced law as in-house counsel at Fortune 500 companies in Silicon Valley before redirecting her efforts to liberty activism and writing.

In 2008, Carla moved with her husband, former FSP board member Louis Calitz, from New York City to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project. During the day, she is the program director of a NH-based arts non-profit, teaches writing, and in her vast "free time" is s-l-o-w-l-y working on a book about the FSP.

In 2009-2010, Carla was the organizer of the Porcupine Freedom Festival ("Porcfest"), an annual gathering of thousands of liberty lovers hosted by the FSP in Lancaster, NH. In 2011, Carla became president of the FSP, a movement to attract 20,000 liberty activists to the "Live Free or Die" state.

Carla is a frequent radio guest, and speaks at pro-liberty conferences like Freedom Fest, Libertopia, Porcfest, and Liberty Forum, as well as on college campuses and retreats.

Liberty Forum - Living Liberty

"Don't you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you're not taking advantage of it?" ~ Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

Papa Hemingway asked a great question and we believe that life is too precious and too short not to take advantage of it. That's why we've made Living Liberty the theme of the 2016 NH Liberty Forum. Our mission is to create a freer society by living our values and forging a better tomorrow, today. Isn't it time you took advantage of life and the opportunity for liberty? Join us at the NH Liberty Forum to learn how Free State Project participants and other New Hampshirites are making it happen.
