Event description

Description

This course will examine the constitutional basis of our government and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers. We will chart how our creative system of checks and balances is working under the presidency of Donald Trump and discuss the power of the president to commit our nation to war without an Official Declaration of War by Congress. President Harry Truman did not consult with Congress before ordering U.S. troops to defend South Korea in 1950. President Trump could order 100,000 troops to Syria without congressional approval. No one could stop him. Should there be more restrictions on the president to commit the United States to war? Should we abolish the Electoral College? Should the American welfare system be larger or smaller? Join the discussions.

Dates: Wednesdays, November 15, 22 and 29

Time: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Cost: $78
