Judge Napolitano's "Founding the American Republic"

The Founding Fathers created the Constitution in order to protect individuals and limit the power of government. In this course Judge Napolitano examines how and why the Constitution was created, and also discusses how the protections of the Constitution have eroded over time, resulting in an expansive and more powerful federal government.
