Founding Fathers - Old, Out of Touch and Dead

"No people will tamely surrender their liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffusd and virtue is preservd. On the contrary, when people are universally ignorant, and debauchd in their manners, they will sink under their own weight without the aid of foreign Invaders."
--Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, 1775

Gotta wonder what ol' Sam would have to say with our fascination with starlets who Vajazzle and have bleached their starfish. Why, there is even a Pejazzle kit coming out for men! Aren't we all modern and progressive and forward thinking nowadays!

Hah. Those silly Founding Fathers. Stuffy, rigid, judgmental and (gasp!) religious! What the hell did they know anyhow - this is modern times now. Get with it, dude.
