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.

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.
stiiiiill don’t get it after years of trying to figure it out what the heck is the electoral college because??? If each state has so many electors and if the state wins the popular vote then it wins the electors then what are the elector people doing. How. Why do we need electors if they have to vote however the general state voted. Also as we saw in 2016 using electors to prevent people from actually directly choosing the president doesn’t prevent horrendous presidencies sooo wtf. Pls explain.
"They cay gun ownership as a right which meant that if I'm too poor to afford one the government should pay for it." NO! That is not what rights are! That is the idea of a "positive right" which is that you as an individual are owed something. Those don't exist. The only real rights are "negative rights" which are things that people can't take away from you. And then there are "liberties" which are things that no one can DO TO you. That's why "healthcare is a human right" is bullcrap. You have no right to make a doctor work for you. Healthcare is right as far as negative rights go, meaning no one can stop you from getting it. That much I would agree to.
As important as the constitution is, it loses meaning without citizens willing to uphold it. Remember that the USSR had many of our same freedoms on paper, but no one upheld them. Christians were persecuted in spite of having freedom of religion. So stay vigilant.
i can't tell if he serious about the whole hamilton not knowing that guns would get bigger and more dangerous because multiple shot guns already existed and didn't hilton carry a pepper box revolver with him which was a multi shoot gun anyways idk maybe the joke went over my head
The argument that the founders didn't know how much technology would advance when they wrote the second amendment is a bad one. As mentioned, the second amendment is intended to allow citizens to protect against tyranny. Very rarely does a rebel force use conventional warfare to win a war, so if it ever came down to having to fight against a tyrannical government (which I am in no way advocating, NSA) having modern guns currently available to citizens would be a hindrance, but would not completely invalidate the idea of fighting for freedom

"the details [of the Constitution] would be worked out in the political process, and then the battlefield"
1. Political Process: Throughout history?
2. By battlefield, do you mean specifically the Civil War?
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.
