  1. Jefferson was a planter, which is a bit different than a farmer. Washington was primarily a military man and secondarily a surveyor, although he did own a plantation. Both were very morally astute men but Washington did break his sworn oath to the King. The government they instituted was a disaster-in-waiting, i.e. they were the well intentioned but unknowing face of malicious schemers that have brought us to where we are today. They should be remembered in history as a tremendous mistake of optimism that should never be repeated. That is, if we manage to survive the tremendous mistake.

    Btw, your coverage is great and I read it every day. Keep up the excellent work.

    • Thanks for the compliment. I’m glad you get something out of these modest posts.

      As to the Founding Fathers, look at the legacy: open borders, gay marriage, tens of millions of nonwhites, a federal budget out of control. The list is endless. The Constitution is flawed. If we ever struggle out of the current quicksand, we have to do better, like you suggest.
