#1 If the founding fathers knew.........04-06-2009, 01:04 PM
If the founding fathers knew what we would do with the nation, do you think they still would have revolted?
This is not an Obama attack, this is politics as a whole attack. Why would someone want to fight for something if they knew it would get fucked up anyway? We revolted and won our freedom from England only to turn around just over two hundred years later and emulate them? Why even bother fighting them, why lose so many lives if the end result would be to come full circle? Now we are overtaxed by our own government instead of another, is that really any better?
I'm not saying the founding fathers did the wrong thing. We are still the greatest nation on the planet, although not as great as we once were or should be. Just an interesting question to me.I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

"Well, posterity, you will never know what it cost us to preserve your freedom. I only hope that you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it."
There's your answer."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken

perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an
everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”

The Founding Fathers did their job. We are just not doing our job very well.

A representative of the IRS told lawyers for tax-exempt organizations that what they pay their executives is going to receive far more scrutiny in the same way banks and other corporations do who accept gov money. It seems they are taking gov money by being tax-exempt.
You are far more optimistic than I am.Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
