George Washington
Thomas Jefferson (I generally liked his philosophy, but he loses points for the Louisiana Purchase)
Abbie Hoffman
Norton I (For the hell of it)

Abbie Hoffman should have been shot for treason along with the rest of the antiwar protest leaders and thousands more jailed for years.

Why does he lose points for the Louisiana Purchase? Would you rather have it populated by Frenchies? :wink:

Well, it was the first major act of U.S. imperialism, which strikes me as ironic since the country was founded by a bunch of people who wanted freedom from an empire. Jefferson was there - why didn't he care? :roll:

Bill Clinton... people only remember him for being horny, and leave out the point that he provided the US with 8 years of sustained economic growth, as well as the only budget surplus in modern times (i think in the entire history of the US as well, but not sure)... so much for "tax-and-spend"... Now if only he could talk some sense into that wife of his...

If they didn't like it, they should have gone to russia and joined that side.

Our military had them creamed after TET failed and if it wasn't for the traitors the war probably would have ended a lot sooner and fewer people would have died and the POW's would have come homes years sooner.

Pol-pot and the khemr rouge wouldn't have killed millions of people, the hippies caused millions to die in southeast asia. That is why they want us to fail in Iraq, if we suceed they all look like the scum they are.
Hippies turned yuppie scum are the scum of the earth.
Vermont is full of traitors, yuppie scum hippies everywhere up here.

:P

It's difficult to win wars like Vietnam and Iraq because lots of times the other army doesn't wear a uniform - they're only associated really in their beliefs (communism, terrorism, etc.)

And Johnny, you really think that hippies would enjoy an authoritarian, militaristic country like the USSR? :P The only thing hippies wanted that could be (theoretically) found in the USSR was class equality, which was kind of offset by the government's power. Hippies were about peace and love, they didn't want to hurt people. Yippies...a bit rowdier :lol: but I'm not sure they actually wanted to harm people (just make a mockery of the establishment).
