THIS ARTICLE IS ALSO IN SEVERAL OF MY ONLINE BLOGS WITH COMPLIMENTS TO THE NEW PRESIDENT AND SOME FACTS ABOUT THE ERRORS OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS. WHAT? OUR FOUNDING FATHERS MADE MISTAKES? YES, THE BIGGEST ONE WAS ADOPTING A CONSTITUTION THAT PERMITTED SLAVERY TO REMAIN INTACT. IT WAS A MINOR NOTE IN HISTORY AND A SUBJECT THAT RARELY RECEIVED ANY CRITICISM UNTIL THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT BEGAN. IT WAS A MISTAKE THAT WAS NOT MENTIONED IN MAINSTREAM AMERICA UNTIL THE 1960S. AND WHEN ONE THINKS ABOUT IT, HOW IN GOD'S NAME COULD OUR FOUNDING FATHERS SIGNED A DOCUMENT WHILE SLAVES WERE STILL BEING SOLD IN THE MARKETPLACE. THAT WRONG WAS RIGHTED LONG AGO, BUT NOW IT IS RECTIFIED IN FULL. CONGRATULATIOS TO OUR NEW PRESIDENT-ELECT OBAMA
- HUFFSTUTTER'S PHOTO ESSAYS
- My dad's dad, my grandfather, was nine years old when President Lincoln died from an assassin's bullet. Most people think I am speaking of my GREAT GRANDFATHER. NO, I am referring to my dad's father, my paternal Grandfather, Robert Levi Huffstutter, born in 1856. What does this information have to do with my profile? It might help the reader understand that I have a sense of being much older than I am in that only one generation seperates me from President Lincoln. This causes me to respond differently to society and many current events. In many respects, this is to my benefit, in other respects it dates my mindset. Perhaps this is the reason I value the moral standards and idealogies of older Americans, the men who were the soldiers and sailors I saw when I was a small boy,the men and women who fought a war for freedom without any doubts posted by a media with a questionable lack of national unity and purpose.
