As if any of you think you know what your forefathers would have wanted or done, I'll bet most of you don't even know what your own grandparents thought or would have done!
You really think statements back then would have been unanimous? There would have been political haggling then too. There would have been disagreements. There would have been internal power struggles.
I don't intend this to sound like an insult, but I have a feeling it will be taken that way anyway - Americans seem to live in a fantasy world where they idealize their forefathers beyond all reason, they're almost God-like in their perfection. The pedestal upon which you place these people is extremely precarious.
Like the royal family?

you are correct and the sad part is,waving them in the faces of people that dont give a dam like the politicians, wont do a dam thing.people rising and taking action in the now is what makes a diference.not reminising on a past.the examples are laid down its our time to do something.any action is better then no action.
unfortunatelly majority still thinks everything is dandy and no need for action.usa is at war! look at the presidents flag pole and learn flag rules then people must see who is waging war at usa. thats a very hard task for alot of people. thanks to our media,bunch of whores! they sold out to the first client.jfk made a speech in vane,if any is turning in his grave hes one of them.

Exactly my point.
In today's world, they'd be able to keep all their money, and not give it over in taxes.
Thus, they would have no complaints.

No one in America HAS to.

America runs a 50% voting rate or LESS on even the 4 year Presidential elections.
