This course will look at the controversial issues of the day in American politics and society and explore what, if anything, the U.S. Constitution has to say about each issue. We will watch and read opposing viewpoints and search for answers in the verbatim words of the Constitution. Next, we will see how the Supreme Court and Congress lower courts have interpreted those words or added to them with legislation or opinion, setting new legal precedents. We will not argue, and no viewpoints will be disrespected; rather, we will make a clinical examination of each issue and the laws pertaining to it. Finally, we will discuss possible solutions.
