Radio Show Featuring the US Constitution Debuts on July 7, 2012

Most Americans have come to take our US Constitution for granted.  They know it’s there because they occasionally hear elected and appointed officials swear to preserve, protect, and defend it.  And they know that “unconstitutional” in some way means that a government law or action is bad, illegal, or both.  But they don’t know, or care to know, much more than that.

Others, including Supreme Court Justices like Ruth Bader Ginsberg, don’t much like the Constitution because it’s so old and because it doesn’t guarantee free goodies like health care, as the more modern constitutions of Europe and South Africa do.

Still others have been mal-educated to believe that the Constitution is mostly irrelevant today because, they are taught, it was written by a gang of aging white males, many of them slave-owners, solely to protect the interests of the rich.

Finally, there are those among the Tea Party and other conservative movements who know things have gone awry in Washington as personal freedoms and property are being siphoned off in the name of “fairness”, “social justice”, “the environment”, “health care”, “anti-terrorism”, and other favored themes from the Left.  Thankfully, these Conservatives are growing in number and re-discovering the wisdom, brevity, and beauty of the architecture for self-governance that was bequeathed to us by the Founders.

In particular, there is an experienced trial attorney and teacher in the Phoenix area, Shane Krauser, who has a uniquely interesting and engaging approach to reacquainting Americans with our Constitution.  Krauser heads the American Association for Constitutional Education which offers interactive classes and lectures on the Constitution.  He has published an eminently readable book titled Your Nation to Save, and on July 7 he launched a radio talk show called on the subject called Liberty Storm.  The show airs on KKNT 960, Phoenix, Saturdays, 5:00pm-6:00pm.

The first Liberty Storm show, which can be heard below, focused on the Supreme Court NFIB v. Sebelius  (Obamacare) decision of June 28, a discussion of Justice Ginsberg’s astonishing public remarks about our Constitution during her visit to Egypt in February, 2012, and a brief description of the South African constitution that she recommended as a model for others to follow.

    Too often, we see companies forget to take care of the workers whose efforts and hard work keep things running. It isn’t fair when they endure an injury at the workplace and aren’t properly compensated. Our firm is dedicated to protecting your rights.

    The Academy is a group of truly elite trial lawyers representing both sides of the Bar:  prosecutors and defense lawyers in criminal cases, and plaintiffs’ and defense counsel in civil litigation (including business and personal injury cases).  While the majority of the Fellows come from the U.S., the Academy includes lawyers from more than 30 countries.  Fellowship is by invitation only, and trial lawyers are invited to become Fellows only after an extremely careful vetting process.

    The College is the only organization in which all Justices of the United States Supreme Court and all Justices of the Supreme Court of Canada are honorary members.  The College is privileged to be able to make this statement because every Justice has elected to accept Honorary Fellowship in the College and to address the College at one of its national meetings.  The Past Presidents of the College include such outstanding lawyers as former Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell and former U.S. Attorney General Griffin Bell.
