Constitution 101 Ten Part Series Starts Saturday January 20, 2018

The Franklin Roundtable Seminar Series

Georgia Tea Party is pleased to announce the first in our Franklin Roundtable Seminar Series. These interactive sessions are designed to equip participants with the background and practical knowledge that each of us can use to effectively apply and advance the principles and spirit of individual liberty and constitutionally limited self-government. Our vision has always been to educate and then impact public policy by advancing the principles of our  Founders and a commonsense approach to public policy based on today’s realities.

Series I – Constitution 101

An excellent set of 10 lectures from the Hillsdale College online course “Constitution 101” will provide us with many fundamental principles that made our nation the freest, most successful and prosperous nation in history. We will discuss key points as we go through the lectures. Jim Jess, Vice

Chairman of Georgia Tea Party and President of the Foundation for Constitutional Education, will lead the discussion–but we need you to participate as well!


Rep. Barry Loudermilk

The first session leads off with an inspiring introduction by U.S. Congressman Barry Loudermilk. 

When: Jan. 20 from 10:00 a.m to 12:00 noon. There is a short break after the first hour.

Where: 799 Roswell Street Marietta – 2 blocks west of the Big Chicken

Our goal is to present the first two lectures of the course, however that is subject to how much discussion and question time we have.

The first two lectures are:

  1. The American Founding: Revolutionary or Conservative?

Larry P. Arnn

  1. The Theory of the Declaration and the Constitution

Thomas G. West

The video lectures are about 40 minutes in length, but the presentation will be interactive and we will encourage discussion and questions as we go through the lectures.

All ten lectures in the series will be presented over several months with plenty of discussion time and illustrations of how to implement what we learn.

While we encourage everyone to attend every session, there is no requirement to attend them all. Come whenever you can make it. We plan to present Constitution 101 on the 3rd Saturday of each month.

We ask that you please RSVP so we can plan for refreshments. RSVP to
