Adopt-a-Bronco:
John Elway
Default Words of a Founding Father

John Jay, Founding Father, Federalist Paper No. 2

With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people--a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence.

This country and this people seem to have been made for each other, and it appears as if it was the design of Providence, that an inheritance so proper and convenient for a band of brethren, united to each other by the strongest ties, should never be split into a number of unsocial, jealous, and alien sovereignties.

Those FFs didn't even allow women to vote.

Are you sure to esteem them as earthbound gods?

PS - Did my use of "women" above trigger a complaint to the mods?

Both species and ideas must be left room to evolve, or they die..

Nyuk would be fascinated to discover that the founding fathers only considered the English and Dutch to be "white."

I guess you haven't heard of the Greeks, the Roman republic or the Magna Carta.

The roman republic no longer existed during the revolutionary war.

It was an age of divine right and kings.

We should also bring back slavery based on this backwards way of thinking. nyuk nyuk going all-in on the racist rhetoric. Disgusting.

Are you seriously accusing a fellow American of being loyalist to the colonial-era British king in 2018?

It would be much easier to make an accurate historical comparison between the modern right wing and the Tories.

It was the conservatives in the colonies who wanted to remain subjects, not fighting to create a new country in which they would be citizens.

Is this the thread where we talk about the next stanza left out of the star spangled banner was about American slaves fighting for the British so they could be freed and how that was a bad thing?
