The US constitution...
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, October 06 2012 @ 01:49 PM EDT
Just for fun a bit and a touch of baiting, here's a less flattering view of the Founding Fathers, how their Declaration came about, some of its motivation and consequences (or lack of) - from a LOYALIST perspective. Some people may not like the way it is spun but it is based on fact with references and sources. As should be noted by "democrats", The War of Independence was really a civil war, rebellion and international war. The "civil war" part is usually overlooked in both US and British histories.

    The US constitution...
    Authored by: rcsteiner on Sunday, October 07 2012 @ 03:42 AM EDT
    I wasn't aware that Native Americans were considered to be US citizens after the
    revolution. Didn't they have the desire to be independent? Documents and laws
    relating to the US and its citizens wouldn't really apply to them.

    I agree that the US Constitution has flaws, and that the way native Americans
    were treated was sometimes reprehensible, but I'm not sure your criticism is
    well-aimed.
