More than a blank slate! The roots of the US Constitution and of Common Law run much deeper than most Americans realize today. To understand the extent of the roots of the American republic we must take a look further back than 1787, when the Constitution was drafted in Philadelphia in Independence Hall, and back still further than 1776, when a group of fifty-five men dared to declare independence for a new nation. Going back to America’s first settlement in Jamestown, where Common Law was first established by the Anglicans in 1620, still does not bring us back to the roots of the republic. Join John as he takes his listeners back not just hundreds of years, but thousands of years, back to the Biblical roots of this nation’s government for an understanding and appreciation of the origins and the true meaning of “Thy Liberty in Law”.
