  1. They showed this in elementary school. My grandmother also played this from a videotape before i was 7 years old . This stuff gets stuck because we are most influencable before 7 years. Now realized they are making a social contract like a game to us. Then, we are told we have to comply with the rules. What we are not told is that we DON'T HAVE TO AGREE OR CONTRACT WITH THEM!

  2. Not a lot of people know today that a lot of laws are not made this way anymore, we have today what is known as a Administrative State, where congress give a broad vision statements on what they want, and then its turned over to what the progressives called “experts” and they are supposed to go out and do research and fill in how to accomplish that thing, and they exercise the powers of all three branches of government, and they are not accountable to the people though elections.

  3. Happy 4th of July in 2019! Every American that grew up watching these on Sat. mornings should be watching this and "Shot Heard 'Round The World" today! TY Schoolhouse Rock.

  4. We need a bill begin the process of removing that A-Hole TRUMP out of office!!! Including by force by the armed forces to show America+World that KING TRUMP is not the LAW or above the LAW!!!! He's the worst President in U.S.+World history!!!!!

  5. He says in 2:47 that if the whole congress votes yes the president can still veto which is wrong because if the senate gets a 2/3 majority it becomes a law even if the president says no COUGH COUGH checks and balances.
