fangz,
In reality he was mixed. On forign policy and taxes he was a conservitive.
On civil rights he was a conservitive. He became a liberal on civil rights about 1960 or so.

Apparently Reagan was unfamiliar with the First Amendment of the US Constitution, which predated unseemly displays of religiosity that are so popular these days among right wing extremists.

Apparently you are not familiar with the fact that until Everson vs board of education in 1947 the stupid idea of a wall of seperation between the governmrnt and religion only existed in a letter writen by Thomas Jefferson.
I for one think the whole idea of that wall is wrong.
If you check out the signers of the declaration you will find they were mostly very religious people.
The first amendment only prohibited the federal government from establishing a national church.
Several of the thirteen colonies already had state religions.
And why do you atheists care one way or another anyway?
Maybe you should read up on the history of this once great country.

wise,
You read a lot into what I wrote that isn't there because I didn't write it.
But it was nice to discover that you at least researched before you wrote.
Here's one more quote I think you will take umbrage with.
"The Democracy wil cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
Thomas Jefferson

Old Thomas Jefferson didn't happen to mention what to do with people who CAN'T work, did he?

Or, maybe about helping out people with a hovel full of kids who worked at McCornwallis (over 2,000 sold) for a ha'penny day?

TJ had him some slaves......maybe he meant them?

It's always an interesting exercise to attempt to add or deduct from the constitution, items we would prefer to read one way or another by pondering what the political celebrates of 1776 thought about stuff.

Coondog believes that the constitution must be understood as a framework for governance in terms of contemporary reality. What it means to us.......today.

Those old guys were aware that time does not stay frozen.....that things change. Therefore, they made arrangements for adaptation of the constitution to developing needs. For amendments, as it were. And in no time, they offered up two whole handfuls of them for us to argue about.

What did they mean way back then? Who cares? What do they need to mean for us today? That is the question!

:hail: Coondog

And....no! Just because the founders had slaves doesn't mean we can have them, too!

I mean he's said LOTS of really colorful and wonderfilled things but this one
is in the mainstream media and will prickle some, so I share it with you...

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today."
