Constitutional Compromises: Crash Course Government and Politics #5

0
115

In which Craig Benzine teaches you about the compromises met in ratifying the U.S. Constitution. The United Stateโ€™s didnโ€™t always have its current system of government. Actually, this is itโ€™s second attempt. Craig will delve into the failures (and few successes) of the Articles of Confederation, tell you how delegates settled on a two-house system of representation, discuss the issues of slavery and population that have been imbedded into our constitution, and fire up the clone machine to discuss how federalists and anti-federalist opposition provided the U.S. a Bill of Rights. And who knows, maybe all this talk of compromise will even inspire Craig and eagle to find some middle ground.
