    Why Does the United States Use the Electoral College and Not a Popular Vote to Decide the President?

    Hello, I’m Daven Hiskey, you’re watching the TodayIFoundOut YouTube channel. In the video today, we’re looking at why the U.S. uses the electoral system, rather than allowing general citizens to vote on the Presidency. On December 13, 2000, Vice President Al Gore conceded the presidential election to Governor Bush. A day earlier, a lengthy and expensive manual vote recount process in Florida was stopped by the United States Supreme Court despite Bush leading by only 537 votes. With Bush winning the state’s 25 electoral votes, it gave him 275 electoral votes and put him over the needed threshold. This election result was highly unusual, not just because of Supreme Court…

    China vs. the U.S. – Trade War to Cold War? (w/ Kyle Bass and Gen. Robert Spalding)

    KYLE BASS: I’m here with General Spalding, who’s just written the book, “Stealth War, How China Took Over While America’s Elite Slept.” General, it’s a pleasure to be here with you today. ROBERT SPALDING: Great to be here. KYLE BASS: Very few books have been written, I think, unvarnished on what China’s really doing, what their grand plan is, what their grand strategy might be and your journey through China is one that I think people need to hear about. That starts with the embrace and the hope, and the beauty of the people of China, all the way back to I guess 2002 with you taking Mandarin, learning Mandarin,…

    Bill Nye: Can We Stop Telling Women What to Do With Their Bodies?

    Many, many, many, many more hundreds of eggs are fertilized than become humans. Eggs get fertilized and by that I mean sperm get accepted by ova a lot. But that’s not all you need. You have to attach to the uterine wall, the inside of a womb, a woman’s womb. But if you’re going to hold that as a standard, that is to say if you’re going to say when an egg is fertilized it’s therefore has the same rights as an individual, then whom are you going to sue? Whom are you going to imprison? Every woman who’s had a fertilized egg pass through her? Every guy who’s sperm…

    Why Are Haphazardly Built Things Called “Jury Rigged”?

    Although many describe shoddy workmanship or a hasty, temporary repair as jerry-rigged, in its original incarnation, the term was actually jury-rigged. While jury as a noun meaning a group of peers that decide the outcome of a legal proceeding has been in use English since the early 14th century, by the early 17th century, sailors had taken to using jury as an adjective that meant temporary / hastily contrived, first referring to jury-masts. It is unclear why, however, and unfortunately all we have are speculative hypotheses with nothing in the way of evidence backing them up. One such hypothesis is that French speaking sailors had been describing their quick repairs…

    Do You Understand the First Amendment? Presented By Will Witt.

    Do you like being able to speak your mind freely or practice whatever religion you want? People in America take these rights for granted, but these rights only exist because of the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights. The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press; or the right of the people peacefully [sic] to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. America is the most free and most prosperous country in the world. But why is America different and why should we…

    The Articles of Confederation – The Constitution Before the Constitution

    The Articles of Confederation – The Constitution Before the Constitution For four hot, humid July days, 56 delegates of the Second Continental Congress gathered in Philadelphia with one purpose – to ratify the Declaration of Independence. The document, originally drafted by Thomas Jefferson with the help of Ben Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman, ad Robert Livingston, declared that the thirteen American colonies were now independent and free of the tyranny of the British Empire. On July 4th, with the final wording in place, it was ready for the whole world to read; though, it would be about another month before congress would actually sign it, contrary to popular belief. With…
