If you ask most people about the Iraq War, they’ll tell you it was a total disaster. They’ll tell you that George W. Bush lost the war, and Barack Obama cut our losses. But that’s totally backwards.

About Prager University
The greatest threat to America is that most Americans don’t know what makes America great. PragerU's mission is to explain and spread what we call “Americanism” through the power of the Internet. Our five-minute videos are conservative sound bites that clarify profoundly significant and uniquely American concepts for more than 100 million people each year.
We help millions of people understand the fundamental values that shaped America, and provide them with the intellectual ammunition they need to defend and spread those values. PragerU is a resource for every American—and every person in the world who values liberty—for understanding and explaining the values we share.
We take the best ideas from the best minds and distill them down to five focused minutes. We then add graphics and animation to create the most persuasive, entertaining, and educational case possible for the values that have made America and the West the source of so much liberty and wealth. These values are Judeo-Christian at their core and include the concepts of freedom of speech, a free press, free markets and a strong military to protect and project those values.
Join us in making the world a better place, five minutes at a time.

Did you know that the livelihood of 85 million Americans depends on the success of small businesses? So you’d think that the government would encourage the creation and preservation of small businesses. Instead, the federal government taxes small business owners at about 40% — not including additional state or local taxes. Watch this week’s video to find […]
Why is the government so bad at health care? Why did Obamacare make health insurance costs go up, and access to medical services go down?

Watch our […]
