Why does history really matter? Did you know that according to a survey by the Newseum, less than 20% of Americans know what rights the First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees?This may explain why so many Americans do not understand the impact of populist and political actions that have a direct impact on freedom of religion, speech, press and peaceful gathering. 

In this episode we examine the idea of experiential education and why going to places where history happened and meeting experts who can tell us stories about those events is a fun and entertaining way to learn. Most importantly, while we are having fun we can make choices about the future of America from a position of strength that comes from knowing the truth of our history.

As a full time college student, he also works several days per week for his Aunt in an antique business which operates both a storefront retail establishment and an online website.

In this week's episode, we delve into what have become touchy subjects; capitalism and excessive public spending. PATRIOT MISSION's 5th LIBERTY Principle addresses the impact of public servants in elected, appointed, or employed bureaucratic positions of authority whose beliefs are contrary to the U.S. Constitution.

We believe Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are put at tremendous RISK by those who reject capitalism and promote excessive public spending.

We'll discuss a simple question you can ask to determine what's really going on. This tactic is the only real way we can protect Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
