    You mean because he was trying to abolish the slave trade back in the 1760's is the slave thing or that when they are freed that they should be deported. The slave thing seems a bit vague.

    And he was also a surveyor!



    However, I chose Jefferson, another surveyor.

    Chuck Norris is just a reincarnated Benjamin Franklin. He traded his former intellect for even more physical prowess. America's rougher times needed a stronger protector, at the same time that he could be afforded time to pick up chicks (Franklin's true art).
