...to Ameirca's orignial radical liberal. Without whom we would not have the US as we know it today.
Thomas Paine born January 29, 1737 in Thetford, England and being a general failure for most of his life he managed to publish the pamphlet that ingnited the fire of radical freedom. Common Sense and The American Crisis should be required reading for every American citizen so they might understand the idea of dynamic freedom that this country was founded upon. Where there are countries like China where there is no freedom American should be the antithesis, the place where there is unrestrained personal liberty. Unfortunately that great experiment has fizzled away and we are now in the leftover byproducts of the equation. The ingredients still remain all that lacks is their existence in great enough quantities to spur the reaction once again.
