They weren't the noble leaders we got taught.
They were politicians
just like all those senators we have now.
Hell bent on their careers.
They'd be glad handing bush and screaming down the environmental lobby and marvelling over how efficient it is for the representatives to just not worry about what the silly constituency have to say.
wish we'd thought of it!
They'd clap strom thurmon on the back and try to convince him to go for another term.
And they'd look at our congregation of old thinkers in the congress and applaud our prudence.
The forefathers would be proud of our country today.
Because they were never chivlarous and they were never noble.
They were just a bunch of rich white men who got tired of being told what to do.
