Constitutional Compromises: Crash Course Government and Politics #5

Feb 20, 2015

In which Craig Benzine teaches you about the compromises met in ratifying the U.S. Constitution.

The United State’s didn’t always have its current system of government. Actually, this is it’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.
