The Thoughts of the Founding Fathers

The Thoughts of the Founding Fathers Are Becoming Forgotten Words Today.

The founding fathers of America had many visions and missions in mind when they signed the Declaration for the independence, and later ratified the Constitution in all the twelve states to be made into state constitutions respectively.

Nonetheless, the thoughts of the founding fathers are merely confined to textbooks these days.

One of the famous founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, had lofty goals and enormous visions of a government by the people, of the people, for the people.

It demonstrates a republican government with democracy as the basis; via elections and state by-elections.

In the time when England, France, Germany, Austria, Russia, and the rest of Europe were still under the ruling of dictatorship of kings and emperors, czars, and kaizers, America was among the sole nation that fought for its freedom from its ruling regime to run a system where the government is bequeathed of divine rights from God Himself.

This was indeed a revolution of its kind, apart from the famous French Revolution later on the other side of the world.

The thought of this founding father was largely focused in providing freedom for people to determine their leaders, by giving civilians various basic rights and liberties such as freedom of speech, right to education, freedom of movement, and many more.

It is a pointless thing indeed to compare this vision to what Roosevelt, Wilson, Bush Sr, and Bush Jr, or even Lincoln had in mind, for these leaders were busy with their own agendas of establishing other set of rules and regulations in modernizing the states.

Only Lincoln managed to somehow bring things together to propriety, as compared to the first four who were too busy fighting outside America to make use of foreign resources.

Benjamin Franklin

Apart from that, it is also crucial to discover the thought of the founding father Benjamin Franklin, who was mostly concerned with the natural-laws related rights and liberties.

He was also concerned in removing slavery from the face of America, and thanks to him, slavery is not practiced in America anymore these days.

With slavery put aside, if Franklin were to live today, he would have been utterly disappointed seeing that such important wishes and thoughts of the founding fathers of America have all gone in vain.

However, Franklin did say that there are three elements to a successful country; War, Commerce, and Agriculture.

In terms of War, he gave example of the Romans who fought against their aggressive neighbors, and not the way Bush or Reagan have interpreted it to go and “create” new wars in the other parts of the world.

It indeed appears as if such thoughts of this founding father are nowhere to be found with leaders above taking control of the country’s so-called health and wealth.

James Madison had also once said, “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree” in one of the Constitution Conventions, basically referring to leaders of nations whose power is not to be trusted.

It seems somewhat vague in Bush or Reagan’s administrations, for the general population blindly believes or believed what the two leaders believed.

Bill of Rights Threatened Today

Another important set of thoughts of the founding fathers above could be generally seen through the Bill of Rights, in which they sought for the protection of civil rights and liberties of every person in America.

In fact, James Madison once had said that one feature unique to the US political system was the perfect equality of rights.

Unfortunately, how true is this today?

Could these thoughts of the founding fathers suit perfectly today to form an ideal legal and political system, or are they merely outdated ideologies confined to the 18th century?

The answer is unique to each individual, although collectively it all narrows down to go against one phrase called “free nation”.

    I actually shook hands with George H W Bush in 1992 when he was 68 and running for re-election. I was shocked that his hand felt soft and clammy like a very young person. I am a lawyer and also saw Trey Gowdy at a continuing legal education seminar and kept looking at him because he looked kind of fake to me. The SOuth Carolina Supreme Court justice welcoming him was kind of almost laughing like it was an inside joke. Once I started investigating all of the mass shootings and bombings and 9/11 I quickly realized that the “victims” portrayed were either fabricated or crisis actors. That’s when I came across The owner of the site is able to show how all the world’s leaders and politicians are all actors portrayed by the royal families. Please read all the archives on that site. He is 100% right because I personally experienced it with these “political leaders” without knowing the truth. This is true for all of our presidents going back to the beginning..
