Join us this month at True Texas Project – Tarrant County as we welcome a well-known author, speaker, and scholar to our stage. Michael Maharrey is an expert at laying out the moral, philosophical and constitutional arguments for state nullification of unconstitutional acts. He has written multiple books on the topic and works with several organizations that promote these principles. Come spend an evening learning about our founding fathers, our constitution, and what rights our states actually do have as opposed to what we may have learned in our education system.
We are also going to hear from Jason and RaShell Southerland, the creators of Patriots Hope.

About Michael Maharrey:
Michael is the author of four books. Constitution: Owner’s Manual examines various constitutional clauses and principles through the lens of the ratifying conventions. Our Last Hope: Rediscovering the Lost Path to Liberty makes the historical, philosophical and moral case for nullification. Smashing Myths- Understanding Madison’s Notes on Nullification, digs deep into James Madison’s views on nullification, focusing on his writing later in life. Finally, Michael joined Tenth Amendment Center executive director Michael Boldin in penning Nullification Objections: Dismantling the Opposition, a book that takes apart the common objections to nullification one at a time.
He’s also penned several e-books, including The Power of No: The Historical and Constitutional Basis for State Nullification to Limit Federal Power and Its Practical Application, The Constitution and the Report of 1800, The Jefferson Letters, Vol. 1: Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, and The National Bank vs. the Constitution.
Michael earned a degree in Mass Communications and Media Studies from the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. As a non-traditional student, he won several academic awards and was a member of the school’s ethics bowl team that placed eighth in the nation. Mike played for the USF ice hockey team at the ripe old age of 40, earning American Collegiate Hockey Association Academic All-American honors. He also holds a B.S. degree in Accounting from the University of Kentucky. Along with his formal schooling, he’s had the opportunity to associate with and study under some of the top academics in constitutional history and America’s founding principles.
Michael speaks at events across the United States, and frequently appears as a guest on local, national and international radio shows advancing constitutional fidelity and liberty through decentralization.
As a working journalist, Michael has written and reported for several newspapers, including the St. Petersburg Times, The Woodford Sun, and the Kentucky Gazette, covering local and state politics, and sports. Michael won a pair of 2009 Kentucky Press Association awards while serving as the sports editor for the Woodford Sun in 2009. He also worked for WLEX, NBC’s Lexington, Kentucky, affiliate writing web content for the station’s award-winning news website.
Michael lives in sunny Yulee, Florida, with his beautiful wife Cynthia. They have two daughters and a son. Although a native Kentuckian, he spent much of his adult life in Florida and considers the Sunshine state his adopted home. In his spare time, he still plays ice hockey and is equally passionate about defending the Constitution and his crease.
We are Jason & RaShell Southerland, the creators of www.PatriotsHope.com. This website is the product of over 10 years of God working in our hearts to get involved in this fight to preserve America’s freedom and form of government. The Declaration of Independence says that governments are instituted to secure rights endowed upon us by God, but now government is the very weapon wielded to enslave Americans and to attack those rights. With so much falling apart all around, where is the hope for the real patriot?
We strongly believe that hope for the modern patriot lies in returning to those truths from the Bible and the original documents upon which our nation was founded. We seek to bring those things to light for Americans, dispel the lies we have all been told, and offer a RECIPE, which we see as the way forward to seek healing for our land. Patriot’s Hope is a place to encourage each other as we strive to restore the American form of Constitutional government.
