Happy Fathers Day: Open Thread On Your Favorite Founding Father

First of I'd like to wish our Father Who is in Heaven a happy fathers day. And since He is our greatest founding father and since our founding fathers put Him above our nation and everyone in it. I'd like to know who your favorite founding father is and why.


  1. Happy Fathers Day Chris!!!

    No fav here as they and we are all equal!!!!

  2. Happy Fathers Day To All!

    All OUR Fore Fathers Contributed A Bit Of Themselves To Our Young Nation And Its Our DUTY To See That No One Takes Those Contributions For Granted And To Protect Against Those Who Would Ignore Their Sacrifices And Wisdom!

  3. Happy Fathers Day to you all.
    I have a few favorites... with quotes

    -Ben Franklin:
    "All the property that is necessary to a Man, for the Conservation of the Individual and the Propagation of the Species, is his natural Right, which none can justly deprive him of."

    -Thomas Jefferson:
    "A rigid economy of the public contributions and absolute interdiction of all useless expenses will go far towards keeping the government honest and unoppressive."

    -George Washington:
    "A people... who are possessed of the spirit of commerce, who see and who will pursue their advantages may achieve almost anything."

    -James Madison:
    "A just security to property is not afforded by that government, under which unequal taxes oppress one species of property and reward another species."

    -John Adams:
    "Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it."

  4. happy Fathers Day...

    James Madison...

    Congress should not establish a religion and enforce the legal observation of it by law, nor compel men to worship God in any manner contary to their conscience, or that one sect might obtain a pre-eminence, or two combined together, and establish a religion to which they would compel others to conform (Annals of Congress, Sat Aug 15th, 1789 pages 730 - 731).

    The civil Government, though bereft of everything like an associated hierarchy, possesses the requisite stability, and performs its functions with complete success, whilst the number, the industry, and the morality of the priesthood, and the devotion of the people, have been manifestly increased by the total separation of the church from the State (Letter to Robert Walsh, Mar. 2, 1819).

  5. what a nice idea! HAPPY DADDYS DAY !!...Angel:)

  6. Favorite Presidents In My Time Truman, Kennedy And Reagan.

    All Three Were Leaders When They Were Needed And Answered The Call.

    Truman Said The "The Buck Stops Here"!

    Kennedy Asked "What Can You Do For Your Country?"!

    Reagan Told Russians "To Tear Down The Wall" and Proved Economy Could Work With Less Taxes And Strong Private Sector.

    Regimes "Its Bushes Fault"

    Regime " Your Country Will Do All For You" At The Cost Of Freedoms.

    Regime " Im Lazering In On Jobs and Economy".Hows That Working Out.

    My Favorites Although Politics Were Different Than Mine Put Nation First!

    Regime Politiics/Ideaology Although Different Put It Before Nation Well Being!
