re: illegal Alien Stabs Father of Two 89 Times, Rips Out Liver - Gr8t8s
Liberal Logic: It's just a nut job. Isolated incident. Most illegal aliens are fine, good people. One crazy gunman is a symptom of an overall larger problem. All gun owners are crazy rednecks. Ban guns!...

re: Anti-Gun Zuckerberg spends 20 million on personal security. - Gr8t8s
True, but they were comprised of the people at large whom were not active duty military members. I.e., the citizenry. Militias were also raised to meet certain numbers during conflicts. The people at large had to be armed in the event they were called upon. ...

re: GOAT POTUS is Thomas Jefferson - Gr8t8s
He did want power, and he, somewhat quietly seeked it strongly. I do think that he would have been content to not be president if it weren't for the Adams/Hamilton dynamic and his fear/paranoia that we were headed back to monarchy with federalist is in charge. Were he overly power hungry, he cou...

re: GOAT POTUS is Thomas Jefferson - Gr8t8s
There's a common theme with Jefferson bashing. They attack his character at home, not his job as president or SOS or any other political position. People, in general, are hypocrites. I think he ranks 2-3 as POTUS behind Washington for sure. As far as the Louisiana purchase, many question the con...

re: GOAT POTUS is Thomas Jefferson - Gr8t8s
[quote]I think he had the greatest intellect. I think he stayed the truest to his principles with the least internal conflict. I think he displayed WAY less ambition for power than most - but particularly Washington and most of all Jefferson. (There's no doubt that Hamilton could have been wealthy, ...

re: GOAT POTUS is Thomas Jefferson - Gr8t8s
Which is a good point. He freed Sally and her children I think, but not all of them. Washington willed all of his free after Martha's death (because not all of them were his, some were her's). ...

re: GOAT POTUS is Thomas Jefferson - Gr8t8s
It's tough to think of one better during the founding era. Definitely not Adams, Adams, or Monroe or Madison. Maybe Washington....if for nothing more than the fact that he set the precedent for all presidents to be measured by. With the OP including accomplishments from before presidency, it'd be to...

re: Top 5 Most Alpha/Beta Presidents in U.S. History - Gr8t8s
[quote]Thomas Jefferson more than doubled the size of the country, without firing a shot. [/quote] I'm one of the biggest Jefferson fans that you'll find, but he kind of lucked into it. France was willing to sell for dirt cheap. He sort of executive actioned the shite on the purchase instead of go...

re: Financial blunder stories - Gr8t8s
i inherited $100k 10 years ago. I started a company with the money that eventually failed during the housing crisis. The good news is that the failed business led me to the current business that I started and is quite successful, but I had a couple of really down years being hard on myself for squan...

re: Obama can appoint Garland, regardless of the Senate - Gr8t8s
The Federalist Papers should be required reading for every American. These so called "ambiguities" clear themselves up quite quickly. The Framers intentionally wrote the constitution to be simple and straightforward because "fixing a convoluted and complicated Constitution is near impossible. Fixing...

I thought the sore loser rule applied to coming back on the party ballot? For example, you run in the primary......lose......run 3rd party. You can still run 3rd party, but you're banned for like 2 election cycles from running as a candidate for the party you were in the original primary. That's...
