That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

Even Some of Our Founding Fathers Were Socialist Morons

What would you call somebody who said that the Earth was the “common property of the human race” and that all men had the right to a portion of that land?  What would you say about somebody who advocated taxing all wealthy landowners in order to create a fund that would then pay all people upon turning twenty-one years old in order to compensate them for losing their right to free land because of our system of private property?  What would you say if this same person called for a guaranteed minimum income and further stated, “The Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the sun, in which they put a man called Christ in the place of the sun, and pay him the adoration originally payed to the sun.”

I’ll tell you what Glenn Beck called him–He called him the inspiration for his new book.   The man making those claims wasn’t one of Obama’s czar’s, but  none other than founding father Thomas Paine who was opposed to organized religion and in favor of wealth distribution.   Unfortunately, conservatives continue to idolize Thomas Paine without ever finding out what the man really stood for.  On youtube and on Sean Hannity a man by the name of Funbobbasso (and yes he is fun) has posted a series of videos as Thomas Paine.  He calls for exactly the same things that Thomas Paine was opposed to.

He is not alone.  From sea to shining sea, well meaning patriots have used Thomas Paine’s name to defend believes that Paine himself fought against.   I am reminded of conservatives who recently went looking to the Bible and their faith for inspiration in their struggle only to find that the Bible was opposed to them.  These brave men and women didn’t give up.  They decided it was time to rewrite the Bible and take out all that helping the poor and blessed are the meek crap that liberals love so much in order that they might recreate a more supply side friendly Jesus.   The Conservative Bible Project is not yet completed, but when it is, I think we will have a Jesus that we could easily see being fast friends with Ronald Reagan.

Frankly, I much prefer Bob Basso’s Thomas Paine to the real one.  As American’s Thomas Paine is a great hero for us, but frankly he was a socialist moron.   I think that just as others are doing with the Bible, it is now time for us to rewrite some of the texts that inspired this country so that we too can remove liberal bias.   The Federalist Papers, Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Paine’s own Common Sense, the Magna Carta, and Profiles in Courage should all be rewritten to reflect the values that great patriots have today and not the words of some socialist crackpot who didn’t even have indoor plumbing.   Not all founding fathers were liberals, but I for one don’t want to take the chance.  Isn’t it time we take back this country and made it the way it always was in our minds?
