Available to you, your family, your friends,

Week One Now Available Sign Up TODAY!

Dear Patriot,
I have been a huge fan of Hillsdale College for a long time -- and for good reason. They’re the college that requires every student to take a course on the Constitution.

Now, they’re making it available to you just in time for the 2012 elections.
You will learn from the same professors who teach their students on campus, including two sessions taught by my good friend, Dr. Larry Arnn.
You can sign up right now at no charge! This is the kind of course every American needs, especially during this critical election year!

My name is Dr. Larry Arnn. I am the President of Hillsdale College -- America's premier college that accepts no government funding, even in the form of student grants or loans, and that requires all students to complete a one-semester course on the United States Constitution.

You might have heard about us from Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and other great conservative radio hosts.

Or you might have seen that Forbes Magazine now ranks Hillsdale the 60th best college in America, the 7th best college in the Midwest, and the #1 college in Michigan.

In fact, The Princeton Review ranks Hillsdale as the #1 conservative college in America.

I am writing to you because your past activities indicate that you are a well-informed American who shares our alarm that too many of America's leaders appear to have little appreciation or understanding of America's heritage of liberty and limited, constitutional government.

Liberty in America may well be on the brink of giving way to bureaucratic despotism.

That’s why Hillsdale College has launched one of its most ambitious undertakings yet . . .

For the first time ever, Hillsdale College is offering a no-cost 10 week online Constitution course based on the course Hillsdale College students must complete, in order to graduate:

This course on the U.S. Constitution will be offered online and at no charge to anyone who wants to understand and defend the timeless principles of liberty upon which our nation was founded!

"Constitution 101" began on February 20, 2012, and concludes the week of April 30. IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER FOR THIS COURSE, because it is archived online, you can take each course at your leisure. The course covers such topics as the Declaration of Independence and its connection to the Constitution.

It is my honor to teach the first class, "The American Mind," and the final class, "The Recovery of the Constitution." All of the classes will be taught by Hillsdale College professors — the top teachers in their field and the same ones who instruct our students here on Hillsdale's campus.

I am proud to be teaching part of our NEW Constitution 101 Course and hope YOU will be one of my students!

As Hillsdale's President, I have devoted my life to education, helping students understand the meaning and history of the American founding.

After all, the Constitution is the supreme law of our nation, the framework by which our country should be governed. Its principles and structures are responsible for the greatest government in human history.

Like you, I see the coming months as pivotal in the history of our country. And I am deeply concerned about the future.

Will we as a nation succumb to bureaucratic despotism, or will we take a stand for liberty?

The century-old attack on the Constitution, that continues today, has threatened to undermine our hard-won liberties and is reducing American citizens to subservience to an ever-expanding federal bureaucracy.
That's why Hillsdale College is committed to restoring and reviving the public's understanding of the Constitution, once again making it the central focus of American government.

Americans are willing and eager to study and defend the founding principles that made our country so prosperous!

This re-awakening of national interest in the Constitution comes not a minute too soon.
My Request to You
ACTION STEP #1: Be one of the first to sign up for "Constitution 101" by completing the course REGISTRATION form.

ACTION STEP #2: Please include the best donation you can make to help Hillsdale College fund this vital project.

The course, available at no charge to the public, is not without cost to Hillsdale. The College has already invested much to make this landmark course a reality. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been committed to create and prepare the course for one of the most far-reaching webcasts in our history . . . and to mount a massive email, radio, and mail marketing campaign to enroll an initial ONE MILLION course registrants.

To make "Constitution 101" available nationwide will cost nearly $1,000,000. While a monumental expenditure for Hillsdale College, it must be made if we are to reach as many citizens and elected officials as possible during 2012.

ACTION STEP #3: Please forward this email to friends and family and encourage them to enroll in "Constitution 101."
With your help, Hillsdale College is dedicated to returning the U. S. Constitution to its rightful place at the center of American political life.

If our republic does not reverse course, we may not be able to reclaim the liberty that has been lost, and we will lose the liberty we still have.

Hillsdale College has accepted this challenge, and our commitment to making "Constitution 101" available to citizens nationwide is proof. But we need your help to make this possible. . .
In order to protect the integrity of its mission and prevent intrusive government regulation, Hillsdale College accepts no taxpayer funding whatsoever.

Your generosity at this critical time will not just help underwrite the cost of making "Constitution 101" available nationwide. It will also support all the other ways that Hillsdale College educates Americans to be defenders of liberty and self-government.

Hillsdale's online Constitution course
In appreciation of your donation of $100 or more, I will send you a complimentary copy of my new hardbound book. Its title is:


In this book I explain the unique connection between America's two most important documents, how that connection has been severed today, and why we must repair it for the sake of freedom.

If your gift is $500 or more, you become eligible to have your name (or the name of a loved one you would like recognize) engraved on a brick on the Liberty Walk located on the Hillsdale campus.

But even a gift of $25 will help ensure that Hillsdale can continue to reach millions with the message of liberty via Imprimis . . . educate our elected officials and their staffs at our Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship . . . run Hillsdale-sponsored events and lectures in cities all across America . . . and continue to educate the next generation of leaders without any and all government subsidy.

Your gift will help make it all possible. And for that I am grateful. For liberty to prevail, Americans must come to understand and defend the Constitution.

And they must do so urgently.

Please help Hillsdale College educate citizens on how to revive the Constitution and preserve America's tradition of individual liberty and limited government.

Thank you for supporting Hillsdale College.

Yours for liberty,
Dr. Larry P
Arnn Dr. Larry P. Arnn
