Introduction: Crash Course U.S. Government and Politics

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
In which Craig Benzine introduces a brand new Crash Course about U.S. Government and Politics! This course will provide you with an overview of how the government of the United States is supposed to function, and we'll get into how it actually does function. The two aren't always the same thing. We'll be learning about the branches of government, politics, elections, political parties, pizza parties, and much, much more!

I passed the US History AP exam using John's Crash Course US History.

I'm counting on you to do the same for me with the AP Gov exam, Craig.

this is a super crash course series but i think it would be awesome if you guys did some stuff on different political/economical systems. socialism, capitalism, democracy, fascism, anarchy, communism. it would all be really interesting

(2:19) "We study government in order to become better citizens. Studying government enables us to participate in an informed way. Anyone can participate, but doing so intelligently, that takes a little effort, so that's way we need to know how our government works."

I'm just happy he called us the right form of government. A Republic. This guy sounds pretty unbiased so far.
