The United States of Dysfunction - Book Cover

Carl Jarvis is among today’s leading non-academic experts on American constitutional history.

He’s the author of The United States of Dysfunction, a book with a growing list of endorsements from figures such as Morton Blackwell of the Leadership Institute.

He’s been featured on national shows like Fox and Friends and the Dennis Miller Show, as well as many local shows across the country.

His talks—including “How Progressives Engineered a Century of Federal Overreach”—show the simple changes we can make (without running for office) to restore “government of, by, and for the people.”

See for yourself (the talk is around 27 minutes):

Carl’s interest in American constitutional history began nearly two decades ago when he took the oath of office to “support and defend the Constitution.”
