America was founded by courageous, well-educated, and well-spoken extremists. At least the current crop of politicians and the Liberals and Progressives in general would consider them extremists by the standards they’ve decided upon in these latter and lesser times.
A Second Amendment Remedy?
Today, George Washington would be on all sorts of FBI, Homeland Security, and ATF watch lists, if they didn’t set him for a “Ruby Ridge.” Indeed, the Liberals and Progressives would decry America’s first President as a right-wing terrorist and un-American for espousing we, the People’s ability to defend ourselves from the government.
Holes In Wall Of Separation Between Church And State?
These days, John Adams would be denounced and would be called a theocrat and a “Christian Taliban” for his simple statement. He’d be classed as a Christian extremist and, like Washington, would be on all sorts of FBI, Homeland Security, and ATF watch lists, if they didn’t set him for a “Waco.”
Liberals And Progressive Hate Jefferson
All that needs to be said about how Thomas Jefferson would fare today is that he would never be able to leave the country for fear of being killed in a drone strike authorized by Obama.
No, those old school extremists who stood up for personal liberty, overthrew a tyrant’s rule, and created the United States of America would be hated and reviled, if not lethally worse, by the Left and the current regime today.
That is why their words are more important now then they have ever been since first uttered. When the nation’s government and a large segment of its residents would vilify its Founding Fathers, were they present today, those great men’s old school extremism is desperately needed once again.
