Of course, that’s not all I have to say about the subject. Stupid Americans. According to a recent Gallup Poll, Ronald Reagan has topped the list of who “America” feels is our greatest president of all time. Ronald “Iran-Contra Scandal” Reagan. The highest Taxer in history. But That’s not what bothers me (much) in this post-9/11 world. If you give this Gallup Poll a closer look, you’ll see George “invaded the wrong country/tortures good” Bush. Why is he even on the list? And WORST, you’ll see his name over Thomas “I INVENTED Republicanism” Jefferson! We don’t deserve the right to vote.
Everyone’s old enough to be fully aware of Bush’s many (understatement of the blog) faults and follies so, instead, let’s concentrate on Jefferson’s many accomplishments.
Begin Rant: Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, presided over the composition of the Constitution, convinced the French to aid our Revolution, began the anti-slave movement, invented the concept of “limited government”, brokered the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clarke expedition (which tripled our country’s size as we were stuck near Eastern Ports), established trade with the French, kept Napolean from owning unclaimed American lands, stopped the British from invading, put an end to the Barbary Pirates, and INVENTED THE MOTHER-FUCKING SWIVEL-CHAIR!!!
But Bush loves Jesus so, I guess, that’s a no-brainer.
We don’t deserve the right to vote.
