Happy Independence Day to everyone at BleepingComputer. May we always retain the freedoms which our Founding Fathers and Patriots fought for and won.

 

BC is made up of so many wonderful, funny, and amazingly intelligent people I have the pleasure of getting to know from all across the globe. While Independence Day is a uniquely American celebration, I wanted to share a bit about who founded our country, how I relate and ask if you do, too? 

 

Who were the Patriots of 1776?

 

They were young.

They were inclined to seek innovation.

They were more interested in right and being right than in compromise.

Instead of thinking they would be morally wrong to rebel, they believed morality was on their side because of the wrongs atrocities and violations committed by others.

They were not established or well off or rich, and they were not so enmeshed in the system where they could not see through deceit, propaganda and scandals.

 

They were also known as Rebels.  

 

Me? I am a Rebel at Heart. I push when it says Pull

Great post Stolen it helped me stop and think. Thank You.

It's not mine because I'm working today. It has a minor PG edit made. But my offering....

Actually many of them were wealthy. And you could add to the list the fact that many of our Founding Fathers were rampant land speculators, and were upset over the Royal Proclamation of 1763 which forbade the colonists from lands to the west of the Appalachian Mountains.
To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.
