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.

Actually many other countries have a similar form of government. They don’t elect their leader via popular vote. They elect their leader via a vote of parliament. We almost had the same thing except the framers wanted separation between the legislative branch and the executive. So they decided on the creation of a temporary parliament whose sole duty was to elect the president and vice president. This would be known as the electoral college.
What incredible ignorance about the 3/5 compromise. If it weren't for the compromise, the South would have had the political leverage of the an unrepresented slave population. With the power in the hands of the slave owners, we may still have slavery today!

Yay we love cramming in all of US history in less than 48 hours for an APUSH class! WE LOVE PROCRASTINATION! Also crash course helped me get through my world history honors class with my crazy teacher (yes we’re looking at you ms. Snyder)😇
Ahmed Barzaq I don’t think I did the greatest but at the same time I didn’t do horrible. I couldn’t get to finish the last 3 MCQs but it’s fine bc I’m not gonna get penalized for that. I already knew that one of the SAQs was gonna be about Manifest Destiny so that bag was secured. I didn’t do that great one of the DBQ, but I think I did pretty well on the LEQ
before the consitution was written a weak federal government was created, because the colonies had just fought for their independence from britain. colonists wanted a weak federal government because they feared the tyrannical rule they had endured under british control.
Hello:) im a fresh graduate of bachelor of secondary education major in social studies...i would like to ask how to create something like this like moving stickmans and stuff...it would be cool to have like this in my discussion:) to pique the interest of my students...it would help me alot...thank you and Godbless
Second amendment was not just for muskets. There are many semi-auto and auto rifles like the belt-and flintlock girandoni air rifle, the puckle gun at the time. The founding fathers knew of these rifles and accounted for the technological advances and allowed these weapons to exist
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.
Although foreigners may now invest in A-shares, there is a monthly 20 percent limit on repatriation of funds to foreign countries.
Performance of A-shares.
Since its inception in 1990, including a major reform in 2002, the index has seen great fluctuations. Overall, however, it has grown along with the Chinese economy. The years 2015 to 2016 were a particularly difficult period, with a 52-week performance of -21.55 percent as of July 20, 2016.
As China grows from an emerging market to an advanced economy, there is substantial demand for Chinese equity. Stock exchange regulators continue efforts to make A-shares more broadly available to foreign investors and have them recognized by the global investing community.
In June 2017, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index announced a long-awaited decision it would add stocks to its index. According to CNBC, MSCI will add 222 China A Large Cap stocks to its benchmark emerging markets index gradually beginning in 2018. The MSCI website reveals the stocks it will list include the Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Guotai Junan, Ping An Insurance, according to a document on Tsingtao Brewery, SAIC Motor, Suning Commerce and Spring Airlines.
Current Dividend Preference.
Participating Preferred Stock.
Convertible Preferred Stock.
Cumulative preferred stock includes a provision that requires the company to pay preferred shareholders all dividends, including those that were omitted in the past, before the common shareholders are able to receive their dividend payments.
Non-cumulative preferred stock does not issue any omitted or unpaid dividends. If the company chooses not to pay dividends in any given year, the shareholders of the non-cumulative preferred stock have no right or power to claim such forgone dividends at any time in the future.
Participating preferred stock provides its shareholders with the right to be paid dividends in an amount equal to the generally specified rate of preferred dividends, plus an additional dividend based on a predetermined condition. This additional dividend is typically designed to be paid out only if the amount of dividends received by common shareholders is greater than a predetermined per-share amount. If the company is liquidated, participating preferred shareholders may also have the right to be paid back the purchasing price of the stock as well as a pro-rata share of remaining proceeds received by common shareholders.
