Constitutional Crisis – How Executive Overreach is Impeding Your Liberties and Undermining States’ Sovereignty: A Study on the Critical Erosion of Constitutional Checks and Balances.
This year’s 90 Day Essay Study will focus on examples of the dramatic expansion of executive branch power at the expense of both Congress and states’ sovereignty – and explain why this is happening. It is, of course, happening due to the breakdown of the Constitutional checks and balances, and the White House, Congress and the Supreme Court are all at fault.

As you may recall, our first 90 Day Study in 2010 focused on the Federalist Papers, and in the following years we divided the Constitution and related amendments into 90 parts, closely examining each clause. Our most recent study examined “The Classics That Inspired the Constitution and the Challenges it Faces Today.” All 530 of our essays by 85 scholars are archived and searchable at this link: https://constitutingamerica.org/ Please check out our past studies, if you missed them.
