Founding Fathers Quotes on Taxes and Government
if you are a leftist you are a traitor !!
Spoken like a true dittohead lol!
Your "research" is bunk and you have NOTHING to back up your opinion!
Wanna try again?
The founding fathers were a diverse group of patriots who shared their patriotism and set aside differences to forge a nation.
Anyone who thinks they can accurately depict the stances of these diverse men and where they would fall should be giggled at.
You'd likely have a group that is what they seemed to be: larger than life. A group that would fall flat; John Edwards types. And you would have the majority that would become hacks to some political faction or another.
Do you guys (both right and left) REALLY think that somehow in 1980 or 1970 or 1960 politics was discovered and corruption magically appeared? Idiots.
Hackdom should really be outlawed; short of that the hackdom has reduced people like Yindar to complete moron status (if he wasn't there already) and he really shouldn't embrace it that much.
It is just too easy these days to simplify complex problems by blaming them on one political ideology over another.
I see it on both the "right" and the "left!"
people like you want gov controll and intervention in every aspect of American life ...it's that simple !!
Brainwashed to nonfunction...Affordable, guaranteed Health Care and taking care of the victims of the Pub depression is not communism, shytteheads...The FF were the big gov't liberals of their day- compared to kings fegging the people...
Tell me how this is bunk. The OP gave a link to actual quotes of our founding fathers.
Read the link and the actual quotes. Then explain why you don't understand them.
Ummm, the founding fathers also had slaves and at the time women weren't allowed to even discuss politics in public. So do you think we should re-institute slavery and end women's suffrage? Oh, did you just say "well, some things are different because the founding fathers lived a long time ago in a different world"?
And the Republicans are as big of a disgrace as the Democrats.
The things they said about taxes are correct and the very reason this country was started.
Some things were different and it's good they changed. The fact that countries self destruct from redistribution of wealth remains a fact and always will.
