thanks for posting this.

Washington and the Founders were great men.

flawed to some degree - as the best of men must be - but GREAT.

God Bless Them All.

What bothers me about the way that I was taught history, and probably the way most people were taught history, is that history is taught without context and instead taught from the point of view of moral superiority of the present and the teacher. I am always shaking this hint of mentality off.

Martha spent the rest of her life worrying that the slaves were going to poison her.

Washington devised a well-crafted solution to an almost insolvable problem of dependency and justice; and from beliefs far different than the greedy, heedless and racist motives that liberals would have us ascribe to him.

Bless you for posting this. It is now being forwarded to various misinformed people!
