  1. They weren't a mess. They did need to be fixed, especially financial issues of standardization and keeping the states liabilities fairly bared.
    The true nationalists (those that desired a strong central government, or even another kingdom-state) tricked everyone by naming their group the Federalists (federalist meaning someone who wants free states that work together without a centralized government) and calling the true federalists the "Anti-federalists". It was a dirty tactic, still used in politics today.
    The American people didn't want an authoritative central power and wanted a federation rather than a national. They are very different forms of governance.

  2. I came here just to thank Khan Academy for the world class, free education that you provide. I've started watching your classes and I don't know how to thank you. I wonder if everyone around was like you guys, the world would have became much better.
    Everyone around us should provide free education. Education should not be a thing that is used to make money. I don't mean teachers shouldn't be paid but some are making lots of money in the name of teaching. I promise you guys that if I ever start earning some money, I will surely donate some money that I can.

  3. The reason this is important is that it brings the Brexit situation into focus.
    Britain is in the situation of the US in 1776: half way there.

  4. The electoral college is fine. It keeps power balanced.

    The founding fathers knew the dangers of democracy and it was one of their biggest safeguards against democracy. They knew that the people should not be fully entrusted with the nation's fate.

    Remember, checks and balances.
