Storyboard Text

  • Clearly, I should have power for the duration of my life. The answer is clear: since FDR ruined Washington's tradition, I will not be able to.
  • Since you stole that pencil, you will be hung at the conclusion of this period!!!
  • No. That is unconstitutional.
  • This is ridiculous. I can't even vote for the leaders that sent me here as an 18 year-old adult!
  • Yeah, we should be able to!
  • The 22nd amendment, after FDR served 4 terms, put George Washington's tradition of only serving 2 terms into law.
  • On the advice of counsel, I invoke my 5th amendment privilege against self-incrimination, and respectfully decline to answer your question.
  • Mr. Shkreli, what do you have to say about the dramatic price raise on your exclusive medication?
  • The 8th amendment protects against crual and unusual punishment. Since the student stole a pencil, death would be a ridiculous consequence for stealing a pencil.
  • Get down and work! No pay!
  • Nawsuh, I dasn't have to no more!
  • The 26th amendment lowers the voting age from 21 to 18. In Vietnam, 18 to 20 year-olds were drafted to fight America's war, but they had no say in the decisions regarding the war.
  • The 5th amendment protects the accused from being forced to answer questions in trial. This is a real-world example of an instance in which the 5th amendment was used over and over...and over and over.
  • The 13th amendment abolished slavery, after it had been legal for so many years. Now, people cannot be forced into work without consent.
