Constitution Boot Camp Testimonials


“As Frederick Douglass said in 1852, our Constitution is a “glorious liberty document.” BBFL’s boot camp brings that alive and helps preserve our founding principles.”

Jack P., Cincinnati, Ohio


“I have attended two BBFLs, both of which were very well done and informative. I even brought my congressman, Col. Dr. Brad Wenstrup, to one of them. He was impressed and asked several questions during the class.

I appreciate John and Jim and their efforts to enlighten Americans on the meaning and crucial importance of our unique basic national legal document. OoRah, Marines!”

Howard H., Cincinnati, Ohio


“Bob Hilliard’s Constitution Boot Camp was highly informative, and very enjoyable. I came away with valuable information, and with a better understanding on the Constitution, and what it is intended to do. I recommend the boot camp for adults of all ages, and especially high school and college students. Bob delivers a quality product, both with his book and the boot camp.” 

Texas State Representative Kyle Biedermann (District 73)


“Building Blocks for Liberty’s Constitution Bootcamp was an educational experience for both me and my daughter. I was reminded about the beauty and importance of our Founders and our Constitution. My daughter, who was in 8th Grade, said she learned more in one day at Bootcamp than she has all in all of her years of public school – and it stuck with her, she still remembers the principles.”

Ann B., West Chester, Ohio


“When I attended my first boot camp in Edgewood, KY, I was unsure what to expect. I knew that I was a conservative, and voted  in the big general elections, but I wasn’t too interested in government or politics. The boot camp changed so much for me! I experienced a complete paradigm shift! Everything that I thought I knew about our history and Constitution changed.  That first class taught me a lot, but more importantly, it made me hungry for more.”

Becky W., Rising Sun, IN


“I signed up for the class in 2018, that was held at Pee Wee’s Place in Crescent Springs Kentucky. It is simply the best $25.00 that I have ever spent. I mean this literally. The wealth of information that I learned from this multi instructor led six-hour seminar was invaluable.

In this class, you are given a portfolio for taking notes, a book, “The Handbook for We the People”, and also a book, “The Federalist Papers”. The class is for all ages but is best taught to young kids from Middle School and up.”

Jerry K., Covington, KY

I consider myself a Conservative and a Constitutionalist.  But, by attending the one day Boot Camp a couple of years ago my eyes were opened to a real understanding of critical aspects of the Constitution and most important how we in the states can halt the drift away and back to the intended Constitutional government.

I am still loaning out the materials provided at the Boot Camp.

Jim R., Traverse City,Michigan

In 2018 my wife and I drove from the northern part of Michigan to Cincinnati, Ohio for a Constitution Bootcamp. We were on vacation so drove our motorhome. As we approached the location my wife said to not be surprised if she left the presentation and went to the motorhome. As it turned out the presentation was so exciting to her that she stayed and enjoyed the entire presentation. 

I was so impressed with the quality of the presentation that I sponsored a Constitution Bootcamp in Kalkaska, Michigan in April 2019. We are a sparsely populated area so I prayed for at least 15 people to make the BBFL time worthwhile. We had over 50 in attendance. 

The enthusiasm is so high yet that I have been approached by a local orgaization asking me to organize another Constituion Bootcamp. That one is coming up in August 2020. There is no better place to spend family time than a Constitution Bootcamp. I had my children and grandchildren present. It was well worth the time.

Mike C., Kalkaska, MI



Your presentation was so enlightening–so much to review and think through. I took an excellent Constitution course several years ago, but this approach is even better–breaking everything down to looking at what the federal govt does thru the lens of enumerated rights.

Lois R.,  Gun Barrel City, Tx.
