What would you tell the Founding Fathers of America: John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington? First of all, I would tell them how the technology has improved. One way technology has improved is fire arms. There are many different kinds of firearms you can choose from. For example, the MK47 or a Striker 40 is a 40mm automatic grenade launcher. It is capable of launching various unguided rounds. This firearm is used by the United States Special Operations Forces. Another way the technology has improved with cars. The first car ever made in the United States in 1908 is the Ford Model T which was named after Henry Ford. From the Model T in 1908 to the latest/newest car, the 2012 Ford Focus ST. Also another way technology has improved is the making of cell phones. The use of cell phones is getting to where people are shutting off there landlines or house phones. Cell phones are getting more advanced every day. For example, Iphone 5 is the newest cell phone created. Next, I would want to tell them about restaurants. There are millions or maybe even billions of restaurants in the United States. There are dining in restaurants, fast food restaurants, and some restaurants where you just park and watch traffic. I prefer McDonalds, Captain D’s and Sonic as my favorite drive-thru and just park restaurants. I would choose Golden Corral as my dining in restaurant. I would have named off a lot more but I…
A Chat with the Founding Fathers
It would be very interesting to have a conversation with the Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington would be fascinated by what America looks like now. There has been many changes from the times they once walked on the soil of the United States which is two centuries ago.
The first Founding Father I would like to talk to is Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson would be fascinated to know that there has not been…
What I Would Tell America’s Founding Fathers
Dear founding fathers of the United States of America,
I would like to address this letter to you all to inform you on our economy and society nowadays that you may find appalling. The U.S. government has collected a national debt that is quickly reaching 14 trillion dollars, but we are trying our best to reduce this amount everyday. Many individual Americans owe over 849 dollars on student loans, which is usually more than they owe on their credit…
the first degree, I would protest in the streets. This is because I simply disagree with the notion of capital punishment as a form of justice even in the case of murder in the first degree which I shall expand on later. In the event that the Australian government does legalize the death penalty in this country, I am positive that this will go against many people’s personal beliefs and as a result, there will be sufficient people who are angered enough to start protests. It would not be long until…

Benjamin Franklin was one of our greatest founding fathers and has impacted our country more than you can imagine. What sets Benjamin Franklin apart from the other founding fathers was that not only was he instrumental in the founding of our country, he also invented many items that have been perfected and are still used today. Benjamin Franklin played a key role in the founding of our country through his actions in congress, his civic leadership in Philadelphia, and his ongoing…
The founding fathers of the United Sates were not just rich white men who owned large amounts of land and wanted everything their way. They wanted the same thing everyone else wanted, freedom. The freedom from the rule of Europe and the freedom to govern their country in a way that kept all citizens at an equal level. There were many problems that had to be fixed, such as slavery and voting rights, but they were open to amending them. One important factor that most forget to acknowledge about the…
When the Founding Fathers created the American Republic they had a certain set of intentions for their newly founded country. Regretfully, throughout the history of our nation, those intentions have been greatly lost. What made America so great and set us apart from other nations was our written Constitution with its guarantee of personal, natural, liberties. Unfortunately, almost since the very beginning of the creation of our Republic,…
What would I get rid of in the 21st century
We have to face the fact that either all of us are going to die together or we are going to learn to live together and if we are to live together we have to talk.
In war, as it is waged now, with the enormous losses on both sides, both…
controversial statement to say whether or not America was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs, I believe it’s an obvious one. The evidence is carved in marble all over Washington D.C. on our national monuments, all throughout our founding fathers personal correspondences, and even in our declaration and constitution. Majority of Americans were Christian in some form, whether it be Protestant or Catholics etc.
Many people argue the fact that our founding fathers were Christians. The 1797 Treaty of Tripoli…

He entered the Old Academy around 1765. There he studied surveying, apparently completing his courses successfully around the spring of 1772…
