"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

I hereby declare it so!

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I told the guys, they liked that, a lot. Though Davies - he's my tac officer in flight - asked if he can be a temporary resident of the most boring State.  :laugh:

I'm guessing Wyoming?

Interesting.  I would opt for one of the central plains states but they are anything but boring when the weather gets angry.  Wonderful people too.

In the movie "Hunt For Red October" I  believe they were thinking Montana.  It could go either way. :patriot:
