Our Constitution - The Real Intent



Our Constitution – The Real Intent

Just about every conflict, contest, and crisis consuming our country – whether it be political, social, or
economic in nature – is, at its core, a constitutional consideration. We constantly hear politicians, pundits,
prognosticators, and people of all walks of life talk about the Constitution – but how many really know our
Constitution, much less understand its development and interpretation over the course of our nation’s history?
Join Dr. Steve Belko – a former professor of U. S. constitutional history – as he explores current events and hot-
button issues through the lens of our country’s unique, often contentious and controversial, constitutional
history. If you desire more insight into how our constitutional framework operates and evolves, and what it
means to Americans since its adoption, this is the perfect radio show for you. If you are interested in hearing
in-depth analysis, lively debate, and stimulating commentary covering current events as they impact our
country’s constitutional history and development, then join Dr. Belko every Sunday at 2 PM on Our Constitution –
The Real Intent on the Real Talk Radio Network.
