d. very smart people


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

...unfortunately not immortal. Had they been, they would have made a stand for liberty long before the federal government reached its present leviathan status.

Bzzzt! Wrong.

Patriot from the latin pater (father), means to be loyal to one's fatherland or country, which at the time was England.

Or maybe George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and as well as most of the founding fathers were born in the colonies.

Huh? So using your (non) logic, it is OK for Hawaiians and Alaskans to revolt?

What the fuck are you talking about? I only corrected you, since the founding fathers can be called patriots.

well in the eyes of the bush administration.. the founding fathers would probably be classified as terrorists.

They formed their own government, creating the war. There was no inbetween period.

Slightly anarchist in the sense that they wanted to abolish the current government. Most of them were minarchist in practice though, desiring a government that would be so small that it could only carry out its legitimate functions.

I've always wondered, and I'm not refering to this thread when I ask this, but why do people always refer to the "Founding Fathers" as if they were one entity? Mainly when people use the arguement "THE FOUNDING FATHERS WERE _____, SO IT MUST BE GOOD" it's just a cheap debating trick with the idea of glorfying the acceptance of one side. Surely they were divided in their thoughts on what this country should be, each one having their own voice and ideas.

What a strange concept, tolerance of different ideas!


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.
