You are wrong. It was George Washington getting ripped off by English merchants that prompted him to back a revolution. TR funded and got funding for a number of his ventures: He was the ultimate salesman. Thomas Jefferson was businessman, a broke man, that got funding for his school. These are just examples. I swear...what do they teach you kids in school. How do I know these things about history that you don't? Most of my early education, where I learned these facts was at public schools.
