    And you show that your positions are as crazy as Donald Trump's.

    Do you understand that you're advocating for the same things as Donald Trump? We all understand that you're voting for him, but the rest of us will be voting for someone who actually respects our Constitution.

    Not worthy of a reply, but I will state undeniably several threads even one I created on "Swift Boating Hillary", which all posts by me indicate very strongly that I intend voting for the Hillary. As this has nothing to do with the George Washington thread, so I'll add "WWGD in attempting to understand Trump?".

    This is a discussion on George and not on calling people names, such as crazy, which is what Trump actually does. Maybe listening to much to Trump causes this type of character dump. I think George would do what they did to people in the late 1700's acting like Trump.

    Is Hillary advocating for the suspension of our Constitution and a military takeover of the country? How would you be able to vote for her if we were living under martial law?

    Did you ever consider the fact that you wouldn't be able to vote if we suspended our Constitution and instituted a police state?

    I didn't call you crazy; I called your positions crazy. Calling for a police state is crazy. Calling for the suspension of our Constitution is crazy. Suggesting your beloved George Washington would agree with you is crazy.

    Pretty much everything you ever write is crazy. That isn't a personal attack; it's just a factual statement.

    Never said George would agree with me, which is another slick misstep in your responses.

    Bottom-line................George Washington as herald of a first President and lived a lifestyle that would not be acceptable today, did have some admirable character qualities in honor, ethics, morality and wisdom. However, George Washington suffered from the afflictions of his time where behaviors that were acceptable are atrocities today. George Washington had no way having the ability to understand the gravity of his building our nation and knowing what sustains or threatens American citizens today. It is way more complicated in society today than what it was like in 1700's. For example a word, such as, "soldier". George could never imagined what a soldier does today and how todays war/conflicts are fought. Another, "law", George would be baffled over the complexity of laws and how many laws are just stupid and unneeded, but some legislator/politician saw a need to profit form the establishment of stupid law.

    America and as United States, is not the nation our first president George Washington determined would evolve into.

    And thank goodness it isn't. If it were then black people would still be enslaved and women wouldn't be able to vote.

    Deciding that owning people is a bad thing isn't something that popped up after dear George died. George Washington bought, sold, and enslaved human beings. Just because it's not kosher today doesn't mean that we should just give him a pass on that fact.

    There were many, many people who wanted to outlaw slavery in our Constitution, but dear George and many other founding fathers decided against it. Let's not put him up on a pedestal just because he was our first President. Atrocities need to be called out for what they are. And George Washington owning hundreds of slaves at the time of his death is an atrocity.
