    Imagine how you would feel walking around in society in the year 2230. You wouldn't recognize much of anything in terms of technological development and societal development. The skyscrapers and heavy traffic might intimidate them. It would take the founders a while to acclimate. After that they would be pleasantly surprised at how well their bold experiment has worked out.

    "A government operating by corrupt influence, substituting the motive of private interest in place of public duty, converting its pecuniary dispensations into bounties to favorites, or bribes to opponents, accommodating its measures to the avidity of a part of the nation instead of the benefit of the whole. Such a government, wherever to be found, is an imposter"

    --James Madison; from 'Spirit of Governments' National Gazette, February 20, 1792

    You can't build what you want on your land without permission.

    You can't travel in your vehicle (read our version of the horse) without permission.

    You can't start a business without permission.

    We have so many taxes and fees it is nearly incomprehensible thus an entire profession devoted to "figuring" them out. So you cant work and keep the fruits of your labor.

    You are not "king" of your "castle", LEOs/Feds can now come in without warrants and take you and take your stuff.

    At the founding of our country, my city was the British occupied base for their military in America, and the site of Washington's worst defeat. When he returned years later, he was sworn in as President.

    Today, he would probably say wow those buildings are tall and what is pulling those things moving in the roads? And maybe "Hey, that's me" if he sees the statue of himself standing in the spot where he was sworn in.

    Considering the gutting of working Americans' assets by the plutocrats and their GOPuppets, and the vast enrichment and political empowerment of those plutocrats, the FF's would glow w/ pride that their plutocratic structuring of the US worked exactly as planned.

    They must be spinning in their graves.

    It is such a crying shame, I am not an American, but I feel deep sorrow seeing the vision that started America has turned into what we see today.

    -do your children still get taught their history? I can't imagine how they could be, and still tolerate the present status quo.
