Whose Rules (pathfinder)

   WHOSE RULES? 

Available Pathfinders

 

Understanding our laws and government rulings is a valued American right as an United States citizen.  We live in a Republic, governed by elected officials, laws, principles, and statutes voted upon by US citizens (Democracy).  Even though our nation's freedom can be a life/death decision for many, it is often said that "American born students know little about the value of their freedom."  Why? Is this a true statement?  Find your journal and do a bit of investigative journaling. . . . . . . . you are the reporter !
