Brion McClanahan examines the U.S. Constitution and presented his thoughts on the authors of the document’s original intentions and whether its current interpretation should be rigid or flexible. Mr. McClanahan researched the public arguments of the founding generation beyond the Federalist Papers. He contended that the nation’s Founders were in support of Congress as the dominant branch of the government, against a large, national government, and drafted the Constitution to support rather than weaken the states. Brion McClanahan spoke at Chattahoochee Valley Community College in Phenix City, Alabama. close
