1100 Charity of Liberties, Manga Carta, Petition of Right, The Grand Remonstrance and the English Bill of rights. All of which I teach in my Constitutional Classes.

Shane is a United States Marine Corps Veteran, he lives in Cumming with his wife Meredith, and their three children; Jackson 6, Henry 4 & Sawyer 3. "The Oath I swore to uphold the Constitution means more now than it ever has. Democrats and establishment Republicans have usurped the constraints of the Constitution and arbitrarily grown their power at the expense of all Americans and their inalienable rights, turning a blind eye to the values and principles you and I share. With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, I pledge to you my life, my fortune, and my sacred Honor."
