It's no wonder that liberal/progressive/socialist/Democrats want to re-write history. They don't like what our founding fathers had to say - in their daily lives, in their diaries, nor in our founding documents.
Yesterday, Glenn Beck focused on Benjamin Franklin on his Founders' Fridays show.
Here are two screen shots from the show, showing the wisdom of Ben Franklin:
Indeed. The old proverb comes to mind: Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Teach him to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime.
Another Chinese proverb says: Don't stand by the water and long for fish; go home and weave a net.
I do believe that Ben Franklin would be appalled at what these United States have become. I'm sure he'd be astonished at how crippling our entitlement programs have become, how our children and grandchildren have no idea what "the American dream" is or what our founding fathers were all about.
And based on everything I've read about Ben, I'm sure he would be a part of our modern day TEA party. So would most of the other founding fathers....including the African-American ones that Glenn Beck shared about last week.
And I'll bet none of them would believe the size of our government, the insanity of our debt and deficit, and the fact that there are persons in this country who believe that their happiness is hiding in their neighbor's wallet.
