    What the hell is wrong with you? The question has been answered. Why don't you consider blacks who fought for us in the Revolution as founders? You think they were all forced, don't you?

    Read and learn:

    Black Founders

    Deep into a thread, their positions start to crumble and they get short term memory loss... "What were we talking about anyway..."

    That is one of the most racist and ignorant articles I've ever read.

    The first two so-called 'black-Founders' were both slaves.

    Founder. Founding father. Someone who was directly involved in shaping forming our country's FOUNDING / DOCUMENTS and principles.

    That does not include those men who were considered property of Founders.

    I'm sorry, but it sounds to me like the tea party wants the whole truth told. They're tired of kids being taught that the Founders were nothing but a bunch of racists. I was taught that the 3/5 Compromise was put in the Constitution because white people didn't think blacks were fully human. Do you understand how twisted that is to teach a child that? It's twisting history for an agenda.

    Good Lord. Just forget it. Remain ignorant if you so choose.

    That's not what it sounds like to me.

    That's not what I was taught. But I'm sure many founders, especially if we are including soldiers as founders, were racist.

    Let's see

    I can not vote

    I only count as 3/5ths

    I can be traded like a commodity

    I can be beaten

    Doesn't sound to human to me

    That's a completely different issue and nothing to do with the why the words all men are created equal were included.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
