America was Founded: A. To escape monarchical tyranny B. So Pilgrims could practice their wildly orthodox religion free from persecution C. Enlightened men wanted "To form a more perfect union," an experiment in governance to show a nation run For the People By the People could actually work D. Nah they were all just racists. "D" is lazy-thinking that reduces all the virtue courage intellect and fortitude that went into founding this nation to a disingenuous lowest common denominator, because it wasn't common and it wasn't a denominator that separated the United States from the rest of the world.

W E Cunn If using the 'stolen land' theory and we all must pay, then at least use it properly. say, "Settlers" came here and started settlements and towns and colonies; the Founding Fathers didn't come here on war boats (like, the Spanish did in Florida), Ben Franklin and Jefferson and Adams weren't collecting scalps. And please place blame where it belongs, the Irish, the Italians, the Germans, the Polish -- every single person to follow to prosper in this country had nothing to do with The Tragedy of Stealing the Land from the Indians (or, the collection of tribes that had no common culture and were constantly at war with one another fighting over food resources, if you want to get technical about it). So what to do? It's illogical. it's not an argument (it has no end point or reason) it's instead a sentiment; an idea or opinion or belief. that's fine to have. But ask yourself this: Does anybody say that Modern Europe as we know it today was originally land that belonged to native people with a prosperous culture that was Stolen from them by the Vandals, the Visigoths, the Vikings? the barbarian hoardes, did they steal Europe? I'm talking about the Roman Empire of 600 years that was destroyed and replaced. yes, repopulated by barbarians. Sounds stupid, doesn't it? The Barbarians were the last men standing in Europe, and they supplanted a continent (Hey question, Do you know anyone who speaks Latin still? Can you find them on a map? Didn't think so.) but I'm using the same logic here, that, I guess all of Europe is bad because, well, they killed off the Roman's (and their language, save for, the Holy Roman Catholic Church, and they only have 2 miles of land left; call it, "a Reservation".) The only place in Europe untouched by the Barbarian Invasion was Ireland. And they- Oops lost they're country. Lost it to the same people that settled here. But a lot of us wouldn't be here if not for that. Actually, NONE OF US would be here if not for that. The Founding Fathers came here and vowed to build a government that was not like Britain, and vowed to never have a country like Ireland, subjugated and lorded over. The entire Bill of Rights is lifted from what happened in Ireland, line for line; everything the British did to Ireland the Fathers wrote in protections against it from happening to America. In that spirit they did not come here as conquerors or oppressors, they came to found a nation in which everyone had liberty, not just those high borne into Royalty. Sorry that slavery was also in existence, but name me a country that has tried harder to make amends for it than America.

W E Cunn I'm saying, for all the good our founding fathers did, they did so on stolen land with no remorse for murdering natives and building an economy out of slavery.
