Entrepreneur and local business owner Harrison Rogers educates voters before the election in November 2020, by providing a Constitution study course.
MESA, ARIZ, USA, October 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many voters make decisions to elect a party without comprehensive knowledge about the Constitution or what drives the fabric of American politics. Last week local business owner Harrison Rogers hosted the first of a series of Constitution study classes aiming to educate voters about social issues before the upcoming November elections.
Rogers' goal with this course is to discuss what the U.S. Constitution has to say about some current social topics that have been plaguing the minds of voters. The course's first lesson taught by a NCCS instructor, gave an intro into U.S. history and discussed the U.S. Constitution and its influence.
"Entrepreneurship, owning a business, and all the "success we see on Instagram" is obviously popular,” said Harrison Rogers, owner, and founder of HJR Global. “The irony is that our constitution, the thing that allowed all these popular things to happen, seems to have become "unpopular."
Through sponsoring this informational course and allowing attendees to attend for free, Rogers hopes to break the stigma to the term “Constitutionalist” which is often used in a derogatory manner to refer to someone who is “old school” or “anti-progress.” Instead, he wants to make people realize that this term empowers people to believe in being able to progress in many areas and issues, but without failing like all the societies before America's constitution was created.
Other topics that Rogers plans to tackle with this course include:
Filling the Supreme Court seat: The recent passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has spurred speculations to whether President Donald Trump will fill her seat as his term draws to a close. Do history and the Constitution support bringing his nominee to the Senate’s vote, this fractious election year?
Defunding the police: The deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor have forced a reckoning on issues of police brutality and racial inequalities within the U.S. Defunding the police is mistakenly perceived by many voters as abolishing law enforcement. Rather, it means reallocating the funds away from the police department towards other non-policing forms of public safety and community support. But will this approach be effective in controlling crime?
Importance of the House and Senate: While the public elects both House Representatives and Senators, and the passing of legislation requires the agreement of both, what are the differences between these two bodies of the Congress, and how do they impact the decisions made for the public?
Socialism versus communism: Despite the differences in these two economic and political theories, the two terms are often used interchangeably and are considered a taboo in American politics. However, with the primary election success for members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) like Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Senator Julia Salazar, is Democratic Socialism now a viable platform against the private ownership and free market that drives capitalism?
