What I Would Tell America's Founding Fore Fathers
If America's founding fore fathers were alive today, they would probably be happy with how far we've come, and somewhat ashamed. They would be proud of our military and technology, but they would be shocked at how high our dept is. Our dept might be high, but America is still the best country in the world.

I mean, Abraham Lincoln would have no clue that he is supposed to touch the screen of an iPad. The fact that space ships allowed us to walk on the moon would blow their minds.

America is wonderful in numerous ways, but there are some things that our fore fathers would frown upon. The fact that Americas dept is almost at the fifteen trillion nine hundred billion mark and is still growing, is pretty bad. Also, one out of eight people in the U.S. uses food stamps.

If it weren't for Americas founding fore fathers, I might be speaking German right...
