re: The founder you most identify with.


quote:

Not really. Lincoln was realistic, for the most part.


Yeah especially the part about wanting to ship all the slaves back to Africa when the war was over. Very realistic.

quote:

I encourage you, and the other people on this board who claim to know Jefferson, to read his writings. Many of these writings were before his own presidency. Then, look at his presidency, and see if his philosophy was consistent. Academic scholars hold that he was not.


I have a juris doctorate. Trust me, I've read more Jefferson than you or I care to even know. And some scholars do. Some don't. Its not a black and white answer. That doesn't prevent me from arguing for his case.

quote:

be careful to invoke his political beliefs in argument for how government should be run.


I'm completely fine with his political beliefs.

quote:

Read his writings. You will be surprised as to what you will find.


Again, I've read a lot of them. I was tested on a lot of them. And I still disagree with you.

Such a badass. I also have a juris doctorate, and I've extensively studied political philosophy. I've also been tested on it. So your superiority as it relates to familiarity on this subject is only inside your own mind.

I knew that was coming. I was simply qualifying why I thought the way I thought. I never once said your opinion was wrong based on the fact that I have one and you don't.

Calm down.

Go ahead and quote me where I said my opinion is superior because I have one and you don't. That's what I thought. If anything, you assuming I haven't read anything on the subject is exactly what you're chastising me for. I was only qualifying my knowledge because you assumed I had none.

I've definitely had too much coffee this morning, so I apologize for that.

It seems you and I may have very different points of view, and I welcome that. I'll see you around on this board sometime.

Its not a huge deal. As you can see above I get a bit overzealous in my arguing sometimes also.

For sure. I'll be good to have another lawyer to go head to head with.

So he was the one who decided that the government gets to tell us our rights.......

Rights don't come from a piece of paper


Goddammit we have some dumb arse people on this board

George Mason fought for the Bill of Right

Others fought for the Constitution

Neither guarantee anything but they helped guide our society and laws. I guess we get our freedom from God but he must so happened to forgot about a 100s of million of people across the globe.

I am sorry about that. This is the only place that would let me post without taking a literacy test.
