Welcome to the a course that gives you the basics of United States government and how the parts come together. If you are present, read, take notes, participate, you should earn a grade worthy of your work and have a good time. Times are tough in the polity right now. We are an extremely divided nation ideologically, socioeconomically, and culturally. Is there a separation between church and state? Maybe on paper, but are the people capable of keeping religion out of politics?
These questions and more are bound to come up during this semester. There are no absolutes in the world, but we can contemplate possibilities.
Looking forward to a great semester,
