23. The Internet
46. The United States Military
55. Freedom of Speech
56. Freedom of Religion
57. Right to Due Process
58. Freedom of The Press
59. Right to Organize and Protest
Is this just a list of things that exist?
Well, I'm sure that some Republicans would like to thank liberals for taking credit for number 86, TARP.
Number 8. Direct election of Senators by the people. I'm not sure if history proves that we have better Senators, I don't know, I would like to see an
argument to see if that's been a good idea or not.
I wish people would take #44 The Federal Reserve back. Please remove it from the list and from history.
And why would anybody take pride in being responsible for #74 the United Nations?
OMG, taking credit for the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson can not be so easily claimed. The Democratic-Republican party was created to
oppose the Federalists and Alexander Hamilton, he fought against the National Bank that Alexander Hamilton put into place. You think that Jefferson
would like number 44 on your list the Federal Reserve? I wouldn't be so sure. I think there are many things from both sides of the aisle that
Jefferson would most likely agree and disagree with from the modern day point of view. Either side claiming Jefferson as their own? Come on.
Ok, I thought the last one was a reach, but 101. The founding of The United States of America? Ok, now this is some funny stuff. After seeing that, I
don't need to go any further. I just want to say that I really do think that liberals have done a lot of good stuff over the years, and a lot of that
stuff on the list is true. Some, I'm not sure about, others I think are funny, and still others I wish they would take back.
With that being said, I would like to take credit for
1. The concept of humility
2. Double stuffed Oreos...you're welcome
3. The Courtesy Flush
And my most important contribution to humanity
4. The Internet...oh wait, was that one already taken?
