    71% Of Americans Believe The Founding Fathers Would Be Disappointed At The USA

    71% Of Americans Believe The Founding Fathers Would Be Disappointed At The Way The Nation Has Turned Out | Techdirt

    I would be among the 71%. If you look at us now and compare us to the past we have become a lazy, arrogant, and stupid people. And the goverment has done many things that are unconstitutional (ex secret laws). Do you think they would be dissaponted in us, and is so why?

    Even with the bad, the US is the greatest country the world has ever know. Not perfect, but I think the old guys would have every right to be proud.

    maybe we should try to focus on living up to expectations that we have set for ourselves, rather then hypothesizing what our ancestors would think about us since it has been 300 years give or take since our countrys founding, and a lot of things have changed from the time of the founding fathers, for better or worse.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    As an outsider looking in, I have no idea what the 71% can possibly be thinking. The Founding Fathers would find a country that has advanced far beyond anything they may have believed possible while at the same time holding true to the principles upon which the country was built.

    The Founding Fathers may be disappointed in some of the citizens of your great country who don't appreciate the wonder they helped create and the way in which your government has veered off course into areas best left to the people, but all in all I believe they'd be very proud.

    how so? Maybe you should think again. The biggest problem in this country is the corporatocracy and putting greed ahead of right. Sometimes.

    Pretty sad that such a high percentage of those responding to the poll know so little about our Founders. In fact, they'd be blown away to see what a global powerhouse their experiment in self-governance has become, not to mention how many countries now emulate what they created.

    They'd be giddy.

    George Mason probably would have, but I am not so certain about the rest.
