Constitution 101

As I was reading up and studying the Constitution, I found a really great online class from Hillsdale college that they offer for anyone who wants to know and understand the meaning and history of the Constitution. It's called "Constitution 101".  I thought that sounded perfect.  The class is free and they put out one lesson each Monday.  So I will have the whole week to read and study, learn and understand the Constitution better.  Then I thought I could summarize what I learned each week right here for all of you to read.
If anyone wants to join me in this and take this course at the some time, it would be fun to share what we all got out of the lessons because it's amazing what one person gets out of the same lesson that another didn't, or if you just want to just come and read my summary that's fine too.  I'm excited!
If you want to join, go here to register. When you go there, scroll down to find an Introduction to the Constitution course.  I'm going to watch those before I begin Constitution 101.
