Daily Video — The Audacity of the Louisiana Purchase

The Louisiana Purchase in 1803 effectively doubled the size of the young United States.  However was it legal?  Did you know that Thomas Jefferson struggled with the idea of making the purchase because he questioned its constitutionality?  Today’s video covers not only the legality of the purchase, but also explains the concept of implied Constitutional powers vs. strict constructionist interpretations.
