In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

A right, in the terms we're discussing here, is not so ething the government has to provide you. It's something the government cannot take away from you(and since government finds "cannot" really I convenient, they append "without due process").
We have the right to keep and bear arms, meaning the government can't stop us from doing so(without due process), but they don't have to PROVIDE us with arms.
If we want to say healthcare is a right, then it has to be interpreted through the same lens.
Thank you.I am 30 years old going to college for the first time but learning about U.S. History for the first time .Today I have my first government exam and I'm so excited 😝 this video deserves all the likes 🙌 Thank you!! Gracias!!!
Sorry, but this information is flawed. You failed to tell the truth. The war debt was owed to Britain and Britain couldn't get their money under the article's of confederation. They met in private with the elite class and worked out a constitution in which they could get their money from the American people.
I like this show a lot, but they are not called Indians. They are not from India, no other country in the world still calls them that. It looks very uneducated. They are called Indigenous, as again..they are not from India
I have no respectful regard of the Constitution. The United States of America was formally founded in 1781. The 1789 Constitution was a peaceful coup *over* the United States of America and its results began to manifest within 2 years, with the Whiskey Rebellion. It was an outright overthrow and hardly anyone knows it. Slickest political move ever until the Republicans got Obamacare.
Citizen militias do exist around the world, and using firearms in this way isn't that strange. The US is geographically isolated from most of those who could seriously be a risk to the safety of the US, and trying to invade it would be a difficult thing to do. Plus, the wealth of the US that any invasion could capture would be destroyed in such an invasion.
Even some of the most advanced democracies and republics in the world, like all of the Nordic countries I might add, do use conscription, the Nordics of both men and women, and the consequences for not joining aren't that huge, in contrast to places like South Korea. And others have programs that give you benefits if you take a basic class, or let you have a firearm after such class.
A United States with a military policy of armed neutrality and a foreign policy that tends to promote a lot of real democracy, peace, and free trade but cooperative ownership around the world, plus an end to the drug war, is likely to mean that the military does little aside from responding to natural disasters and sending maybe a few hundred willing volunteers oversees as advisors and peacekeepers in broad international coalitions decided on by collective agreement of many nations, and with minimal use of heavy weaponry that ordinary people could not own.
Some countries have actually dispensed with the military altogether. Costa Rica is an example of this. Police take their place, and it isn't that difficult to actually get your hands on the same quality of weapons and equipment that even a SWAT team could get their hands on. A semi automatic or sort burst carbine rifle, a taser, pepper spray, riot shield, helmet, bullet resistant vest, and vans with bullet resistant shielding, along with a less militarized SWAT team in general, means that the actual disparity is pretty low, and the difference comes from training, backup, and the degree of unity of a given team.
There are also volunteer versions of police with more local and neighbourhood accountability, and who don't enforce a drug war or PATRIOT Act, or mass incarceration, where jail is seen as a last resort, and police are weak and have to observe many civil rights with strong transparency and accountability, unlike American police today.
This together means that an America where most people having had at least a few months in the military and many people deciding to own one or two firearms per home isn't nearly that strange and guns could be just a tool for most people, treated with the respect that firearms should be treated with, given only to responsible people, not used by gangs.
A course on the Judiciary after the Constitution should be added. That way later vids where the Judiciary and the Supreme Court are key players on the way history unfolds will have a foundation to rely upon.
We need to get that "Well Regulated Militia" going here in the United States. Have President Trump issue Ammunition, Equipment, Uniforms, and Weapons to Those OF US that have sworn an Oath to the Constitution, and those that will swear an oath, and uphold the United States Constitution. Remove the Anti-Constitutional Left from any political, judicial, appointed position in the United States Government including the State Governments, starting with California.Deport them to the Communist Country of their Preference, never to return.
5:52 i thought the electoral college was used because of lack of easy transportation and communication forcing an electoral college basically being people who say "my state voted this way", but was just not got rid of when it wasn't needed anymore
Pidgeons are not real, My reasoning for this is simply because I have not ever seen a baby pigeon in my entire lifetime and another reasoning is because ever since the government shutdown, I have not seen a single pidgeon
A few years old, but still... the lame attempt at jabbing at the "people resisting the government" notion of the 2nd Amendment was pretty cute. I fought two tours in Iraq, I've seen firsthand how a bunch of yokels with AK-47s and fertilizer fought the most advanced military on the planet for a matter of years - and did not exactly lose as we saw with ISIS. Your argument shows a severe lack of understanding of how an insurgency works, asymmetric combat and modern war. If, God forbid, it were to happen and you think that it would be a bunch of hillbillies lining up on the streets to get slapped by a Hellfire from 20,000 feet you really shouldn't be adding your commentary on the matter.
I normally like these videos, but man that sucked, come back with a real argument next time you try and talk smack.
I used to think the fact we have the longest surviving constitution as a point of pride, but not anymore what about all the endemic racism or the economic slavery that is very real. You mean to tell me in almost three hundred years we came up with nothing better. Even the Founders of our country changed the nature of our government from the Articles of Conffedaration being the law of the land to the constitution. Is just depressing seems like our political and economic history is stunted.
I used to enjoy watching your videos before that rant. And just because something is a right doesn't mean the government has to buy it for you. Also when it comes down to gun control there is no credible evidence that gun control actually works. For example you look at the UK right now or homicides robberies and rapes are skyrocketing. Good day sir.
Probable boo for many who were not slaves or Native Americans as well, as life at that time was not like the Founding Fathers for most of our ancestors who were here. At least I know it was not for mine.

11:11 *Rights aren't entitlements.*
The rights to bear arms means you have the right to access to any arms the government can use against you. The same way the first amendment gives you the right to have access to any of the media methods the government has to practice its free speech.
If the government was required to give arm every citizen because every citizen has a right to bear arms, then the government would have to give every person an iPhone or TV station, so everyone has an equal amount of free speech. *A right is not the same as equal distribution among all citizens. A right is the government not intervening to stop you from gaining access to something.* If you think that you're entitled to a predator drone because it's your right, then I'm also entitled to have my own syndicated news network because CNN has the ability to speak to millions of people, and the government has to pay for mine equal ability to speak to millions of people, or the government "denying my rights." Give me a break.
Oh yeah, and the founding fathers had personally seen and used high capacity magazine fed, semi-automatic rifles. Look up the Belton Flintlock.
Actually we copied a lot of other forms of government and made a hybrid of them. The president functions like one, but is elected like a prime minister. Other countries had executives elected by the legislative. Our founders, feeling a system of checks and balances between branches of government being necessary, decided to propose a compromise and have a completely separate body of delegates convene whose sole responsibility was the election of the president. Given this knowledge the electoral college itself isn’t so strange. However the way the vast majority of states have decided to apportion their delegates to the college is strange for a democracy.
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
Job Duties Questionnaire.
We recommend you keep a copy of your previous payroll reports and payroll records for at least seven years, as you would your tax records.
Submitting Payroll Reports.
There are three different ways to submit your payroll reports.
