We are excited to host this excellent training on the Constitution facilitated by Mr. Bob Hilliard (read his bio below).
The cost is $25, which includes lunch and the book shown. Couples and families that can share a copy of the book can pay $15 for each additional member.
Cost to attend this training w/o the reference book is $15 (to cover lunch). Mr. Hillard will have a number of extra books and DVDs on hand for purchase if desired.
If so, you may donate the cost of registration (to include lunch) so we can offer students the opportunity to attend free of charge “due to the generosity of SATP supporters.” (With your permission, we will list the names of Boot Camp sponsors in the Revere Report!)
Please contact Jeanie Spence at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make special arrangements to reserve your Constitution Boot Camp seat(s)!
Your future depends on it. The future of our nation depends on it.
Your freedom to exercise your natural rights depends on it.
Does any branch of the federal government have the constitutional authority to determine whether or not it is permissible to eat hot dogs and chips in your school cafeteria, to defend yourself with a weapon of your choice, or to pray at your school event? Or to create regulations over every aspect of business, and of life? NO—yet we the people have been condoning this, with tacit approval, for far too long.
The Constitution is the rule book that we created for the federal government. It is our permission slip for our central government to exist and function. It is not a rule book for the states or the people. Yet this is not how we have been treating the Constitution, for many generations now. But this is changing, and boot camps like this are happening around the country.
Strict construction means interpreting the Constitution based on what it actually says, with the clarifications given us by our nation’s founders.* The framers of our Constitution expected “We the People” to be the natural guardians of our own freedoms, not the elected officials or appointed judges. How is it possible for we the people to do that if we do not have a basic working knowledge of the rules?
Please join us on September 30!
Prior to 2009, Bobby Hilliard spent most of his life in the food service business. First he worked with his father in the family restaurant. Later he became a food service design consultant where he authored a book on kitchen equipment maintenance. Retirement was to be filled with days on the golf course, but it did not work out that way. Protests all over the country as a manifestation of discontent of We the People began in February 2009. Too much government spending, bailouts, and federal government programs considered beyond the federal government’s authority were the focus of these protests all over the country. Somehow the country had gone astray.. In order to find out where we had gone wrong, Bobby researched websites to find like-minded countrymen. One website in particular had a constitution study group that opened his eyes. It was not hard to realize that the federal legislator’s failure to adhere to the limits in the Constitution was one problem. Voter ignorance of those limits was another. After years of study on strict construction of the Constitution he decided to write The Handbook for We the People. Bob still considers himself to be a student of the Constitution. This book is intended to aid students of all ages in learning what is actually written in the Constitution in hopes of filling our country with students, teachers, candidates, legislators, and voters who are literate about our Constitution. Bobby graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas in 1971 with a BBA in Business and married his sweetheart, Marilyn, the same year. He spent his college summers by manning the family shrimp boats in Galveston Bay catching shrimp for the restaurant while taking flying lessons and obtaining his Private Pilot Certificate. Later he built and flew his own home-built aircraft, and still has a passion for all things related to flying.
