Our Founding Fathers Would Be In Guantanamo

Op-Ed: Our Founding Fathers were Freedom Fighters …
My ancestors are traced back to the 1600’s, immigrating to this continent on boats from England and Ireland. Several of them fought in the American Revolution – I have documents and letters from one who was injured, became ill and had to return home to recover before returning to his unit to finish the fight. I have the letters and documents his daughter wrote to the fledgling government about his ‘veteran’s’ benefits in the late 1790s. The United States Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787. The final branch of government was not installed until February 2, 1790.
In today’s America, my ancestors would be labeled as a ‘home grown terrorists’ and ‘enemy combatants’. They would end up in Guantanamo indefinitely!
My other ancestors, Presidents Polk and Monroe, are rolling in their graves to witness this country return to Monarchy. They would climb out of their graves in protest to see a Theocracy in bloom.
Where is spirit that drove these people? Where are the descendants of the Minutemen who risked everything for a grand idea? Where are the descendants of the signers of the Declaration, Bill of Rights and Constitution?
Hear ye, hear ye, calling all people who call themselves AMERICANS, duty calls you to step up to the responsibility to carry the banner of freedom handed to you by your Founding Fathers and Mothers. REVOLT! That’s what my ancestors did.
Rally! Speak out! Pressure the people you elected to represent you! This is supposed to be a Representative Government ruled by Law as directed by our Founding Fathers.
