Comments regarding “We the People, the Constitution Matters” radio show

“Extraordinary!  Profound!  Brilliant!  No other program on the radio compares!  Too much information given out. I need for them to slow it down so I can digest it and think on it.  Ask the speakers to go over points more often.  This program is critical for the well being of our country.”  30 Dec 15

Comments regarding CLI’s Courses and Seminars

“Mr. Porter’s presentation was extraordinary. His detailed knowledge of the subject provided an excellent foundation of James Madison’s pre-eminent role to include the Bill of Rights within our constitution. I could have listen[ed] for at least another two hours.”

“I attended your talk at VCA on July 11th. Your teachings/explanations opened my eyes in many areas as to what the constitution does and does not say.”
T.L 4 Sep 15

“We all benefited greatly from your seminar and plan to build momentum on what we’ve learned.”
A.S. 23 Aug 15

“It was not only an honor meeting you yesterday … but also an eye opener and learning experience about the original intent of our constitution. For certain; I believe I walked away a much better informed American. Your seminar including the study guide and information given throughout the day enables me and empowers me to continue to learn more about our constitutional rights and has surely better enabled me to stand up and take action when our government leaders are stealing our liberty and freedom.”
H.M. 23 Aug 15

“Hi Gary, I enjoyed your seminar very much and so did my colleagues. I hope that you will come back and teach another class.”
A.V. 17 May 15

“Gary, I found the seminar informative, thought provoking, educational, a tad biased toward the Christian belief, but over all a great use of my time. Thank you for the lessons. I have always known our foundation was a strong one but with all the corruption and deception that plays a part in today’s politics I didn’t think there was hope for keeping our Constitution. Its always been my thinking that it would be much easier to just wipe the slate and start a new. I do have different thoughts and ideas now and you are to thank for that.”
A.P. 17 May 15

“Hello Gary, I wanted to thank you for the Constitutional course you taught. I think all of us who took it enjoyed it very much, and found it more than edifying. I lost internet connect during that last session, so I could not express this at the end of the class.”
H.M. 14 May 15

“I have gained so much from your course! You’ve been a terrific teacher and a blessing to all of us. Thank for this labor of love of yours to educate your fellow citizens and brothers and sisters in Christ. Your efforts have hit the mark!”
C.R. 4 May 15

“Wow! I have never seen these statements in formal use. I have missed so much history in my educational pathways. Thank you for helping me be aware of some of what I missed and finally seeing for first time! Blessings to you and all your staff,”
R.C. 3 May 15

“[The]… Seminar offered not just a dry examination of dusty documents but a thorough look at the times in which they were created. [Mr. Porter] is a constitutional scholar with insight and appreciation for these milestones in Liberty’s Legacy. It was a profitable day.”
C. K., Historian and Publisher; Chairman, Bill of Rights Bicentennial Committee

“The class was great and I am very glad I attended. My 15-year-old son got a lot out of it… [T]hat was my intent on having him attend because his generation will have to save the country….”
B.P., Professional Engineer.

“I truly enjoyed the [seminar] and learned a lot.”

“TRULY A TALENTED TEACHER. If you are in the area, its worth every penny. We took a Constitution class with this gentleman last year…..Gary Porter is amazing!”

Comments regarding Gary’s Essays

“Thank you for the … piece on the difference between a democracy and federal republic. All teachers need this!”

J.O. 22 Nov 16

“Brilliant clarity and confidence-building impact.  Reading Jeremiah 30 this AM had same impact.  God is Sovereign, right is right, liberty is liberty.”

C.A. 2 Jun 16

“Thanks, and in case you do not hear it nearly enough……..You are providing a service that is profoundly important today.  If you can reach someone like me……a Nurse Practitioner, with a weak history/civics background, you have accomplished something very special.

You have my gratitude!”

P.G. 25 Oct 15

“Excellent [essay]. A fitting and strategic knock-out after the first two swings.”
C.A. 17 Jun 15

“Thank you so much for forwarding your essay. It gives me much hope. Your report was very inspiring–and interesting! I am constantly looking for encouraging articles to share with those who are having a hard time being hopeful! WE SHOULD NEVER GIVE UP HOPE BECAUSE WE SERVE AN ALL-POWERFUL AND LOVING GOD. He created this country and he can do whatever he wants with it. Hopefully, that means full recovery although that may seem quite a lot to expect.”
D.R. 1 May 15

“Hello Gary, I am excited to share with you that my daughter, Veronica, who took your IOTC class online through FACE, just had an article published by Jake MacAuley. It is also my turn to pay it forward and start multiplying the message in Minnesota. The local NCFCA debate club has asked me to teach the IOTC student class to their club to kick-off their program before the new school year. If you have any suggestions for me in this regard, they would be most appreciated. Thank you & God bless,”
