    Tomorrow on the History channel the men who built America about John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan and we also have the Presidential debate what do you think should I go with the men who built America or the guy who is sure trying to tear it up?

    DVR.....The men who REALLY built America weren't rich tychoons. The men who built America slaved and worked their asses off...laying brick and mortar, clearing forests, driving rail spikes. The Tychoons just had money.....they didn't build shit.

    It takes two things to build a nation
    1# The thinkers that organize and plan
    2# The labor that beats its ass into the ground to get it done.

    May not be fair, but it's the way the world turns.

    This may be a shock to you but the men highlighted in the show were not born rich they actually had to work for their wealth.

    No....they were rich because they had no competition and when one would creep up, they'd squash them. Of course, worshiping tyranny and ruthlessness as your God is nothing new. I see it on here all the time.

    So? Should they have been just given it? Let me guess....the workers that they drove into the ground deserved it.
