Patriots

The founders were liberal radicals. The loyalists wanted no war with England. Why upset the sweet financial deal they had? The other third were fencesitters, but patriots like my ancestor Reuben Colburn said no. He risked his land and family's livelihood to fight for an idea: America. We salute them on this day, in which John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died in 1826.

I salute them all.

I'm very dissapointed in you, Mark. You have such passion, but you reveal yourself as an intellectual coward in the way you censor opposing viewpoints from your blog comments.

I promise that if you are ever a guest of my blog, you can say anything that you have the "wisdom" to defend.

I'll return you now to the safe harbor of unchallenged egologging.

Best to you in all endeavors.

I can see why you are both young and troubled. Perhaps confused is a better term. What you don;t do is go to someone else's house and call them names right off the bat. I'm no coward and your "ideas" are certainly no challenge. I will not aid and abet myths which is what most conservative assertions are. You're oh so typical in that regard.
