The Constitution of the United States has endured for over two centuries. However, our constitutional republic is threatened by vulnerabilities in the election process, corruption amongst our elected leaders and representatives, and censorship of political speech that is fundamental to a free society. Our republican form of government is further weakened by misinterpretations of the Constitution that diminish our rights, dilute the separation of powers, and delegate legislative power to the administrative state. The very meaning of what it is to be an American, replete with our exceptional political, economic, and social culture, is now threatened by massive, uncontrolled illegal immigration. We will hear from eight leading experts how we might remedy these problems, strengthen our constitutional republic, and restore the promise of America.
