The Manteca Tea Party Patriots will be hosting a panel discussion on the Constitution, with an emphasis on the 2nd Amendment, and the role of government at their next \meeting on Thursday, April 11.

The featured participants on the panel are: Steven Routh, Professor of Political Science at CSU Stanislaus; and Mike Winther from the Institute for Principle Studies. The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m., and will be held at Chez Shari at the Manteca Golf Course, which is located at 305 North Union Road.

The discussion will focus on the Founding Fathers’ vision of the role of government in our society from a Constitutional perspective, and how current political events fit into that perspective. In today’s political climate, folks on all sides of the political spectrum use their own interpretation of the Constitution to justify various actions and policies, often without understanding the historical events that shaped the Founding Fathers’ intent. This discussion will focus on the facts and the Constitution as written, taking an objective look at what exactly is and is not constitutional.

Routh received his PhD in Political Science from the University of California, Davis. His fields of specialization are American Politics and Government, Public Law, and International Relations. He is currently a Professor of Political Science, Pre-law Adviser, Chair of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration, and an Interim Associate Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences in his eleventh year at California State University, Stanislaus.

Winther is the founder and president of The Institute for Principle Studies, a Christian think-tank dedicated to researching and teaching foundational principles of government, economics, and history. Mike holds a degree in political science from the University of Idaho. Soon after graduating, he worked as a professional campaign consultant in Washington and California. us with is, “The source determines the use.”
