When Alexander Hamilton was asked about the United States’ new form of government, he responded, “Here, sir, the people govern.” Do we know as much as we think we know about how we rule ourselves? Could you explain more than the broad outline and generalities? This will not be your typical American government course. We will use real life events to help explain how all of the moving parts mesh together to get us to where we are today. Are you ready for a lively conversation where we can share our own experiences? Are we much different from our cousins living in 1787?
