    A great share of the American Revolution was won by the French. So let's call it radical since the American army at that time was mostly consisted of farm workers, who served for one month, then returned to their farms. Meanwhile the French supplied the American army with $29 million (today it would be about ($ 1 trillion), leading generals, including the marquis Lafayette and other members of the noblity, a naval force to create a blockade, and thousands of soldiers. About half of the American army soldiers killed during the Revolutionary War were French. Also on the 100th year of the anniversary of America's win, the French gave the Americans the statue of liberty.

    The 1776 American Revolution, and the founding fathers of our country, were all considered radicals with radical ideas. If you ever get a chance to visit Philadelphia and tour the historic sights there, the tour guides even phrase the founding fathers' actions in this manner. It was a very bold move to go against the governing country of England, knowing it would precipitate war.

    Radical be defination means different; different from the traditional. Starting a revolution for independence would be considered radical.

    The 1776 revolution? Read the declaration of independence. It is a clearly stated explanation for their actions. Simply put, men, created in the of God, should cast off the chains of monachy, and govern by vote . . . . or . . . . what we today call democracy.

    It was a Constitutional Republic.

    The founders warned us against "democracy" and gave reasons why.
