San Angelo Tea Party, Inc.
West Texans for Constitutionally-Limited Government
June 9 San Angelo Tea Party meeting featuring NATIONALLY ACCLAIMED SPEAKER Don Jans, author of
“MY GRANDCHILDREN'S AMERICA
WILL IT STILL BE THE HOME OF THE FREE AND THE LAND OF THE BRAVE?”
Don Jans, the author of "My Grandchildren's America", believes that America is great
because of it's promises of individual freedom and opportunity. Like most grandparents,
he believes his grandchildren will have the ability and desire to excel, if that
opportunity is still available. Will the changes promised and happening now, limit
these freedoms and opportunities?
Don has been a student of history for over 40 years. He has concentrated in the study of European history with an emphasis on Russian history. This led him to his study of Karl Marx and Marxism. In addition to being a popular speaker on Marxism, Don has also had articles published on the topic. He also has been a guest on regional and national media broadcasts.
Please plan to attend.

Written between October 1787 and August 1788, The Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written in defense of the Constitution. Writing under the penname Publius, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay explain the merits of the proposed Constitution, while confronting objections raised by its opponents. Thomas Jefferson described the work as “the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written.” This course will explore major themes of The Federalist Papers, such as the problem of majority faction, separation of powers, and the three branches of government.
The American Founders recognized the central importance of education for the inculcation of the kind of knowledge and character that is essential to the maintenance of free government. For example, the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 states, “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.” This course will consider the older understanding of the purpose of education, the more recent Progressive approach that has become dominant today, and some essential elements of K-12 education.
