While the northern and southern colonies were essentially English, "between 1607 and 1642-a time of political and religious troubles in England-some 65,000 adventurous spirits went out to the English West Indies and the [American] mainland colonies."67 Ultimately there came to pass such a broad range of ethnic variety, the burgeoning colonies were slowly gaining an identity of being American. While the northern colonies of Plimoth and Massachusetts Bay, "were Englishmen of roughly similar social origins,"68 Pennsylvania and New York "came to represent the full ethnic range of Western Europe, while New England and the seaboard South remained essentially English in background."69 Of the political, economic, and religious (spiritual) motivations that brought so many to the New World not one was more or less important than the other. If we look to colonial charters, we find foundations of civil society and government, supporting the English heritage of religion, education, and manners that they brought with them.70 67 Meyers, ed., et al., Sources of the American Republic, 7. 68, ibid. 69, ibid. 70, See Chapter I above, 12.

from Benjamin Franklin: "democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!"
The question itself is not very fair. The founding fathers grew up in a time where male superiority was unquestioned. Most did not believe in votes for women due to the fact that it was not demanded or requested until a later time period. Most did not even address the sufferage movement. But, John Adams ( the first vice president) responded to a letter from his wife where he did not agree with the votes for women movement. In fact he discouraged his wife from pursuing the movement because of the political turmoil that was occurring (due to the Revolutionary War) and America did not need any more division between its citizens. They were probably neutral, but they weren't for it. That's for sure.
Neither. Samuel Chase was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States and a signatory to the Declaration of Independence. He didn't rule any government; his highest position was Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court.
I think this might be the section 8? yes it is near the bottem ...is this a question for a take home test by any chance because i am writting about this right now lol
The Founding Fathers of the United States of America did not have very much faith in human nature, humans are inherently evil and will always take and grab power. Also humans are inherently stupid and don't pay any attention into politics, and were very uneducated and not in any position to vote towards the right way to rule a country. Thus the founding fathers put checks and balances on both the government officials, who would grab more power as well as upon citizens who are stupid. they did not want stupid common man running government, they were far too untrusting of human nature. thus they set up things like the electoral college, a group of people who would be educated and research the candidates and then select the correct path or candidate to vote for.
no.none of the founding fathers have pets
The Founding Fathers of America did not express any views of protocol, but they did not appreciate the protocol of the monarchy.
they contribute to the kitchen brigade and many foods
George Washington FLVS:)
yes both were founding fathers of the u.s
Montesquieu, he was cited more times by the Founding Fathers than any other source except the Bible. His model was based on the Roman Republic and the British constitutional system.
They are Founding Fathers because they played an important part in the founding of the Unites States. However, they are not the only people considered Founding Fathers. There were a great many and any attempt to make a list would surely miss some.
Yes, several were. Washington was the Master of his lodge and had a Masonic funeral when he died.
The founding fathers include in the Constitution of power sovereignty to reinforce and reinstall the idea that the new United States were both soverign and independent. This in turn made it harder for Great Britian to exert any type of influence.
If by founding fathers you mean delegates to the Constitutional Convention then the answer is yes. there was a great deal of vigorous debate over what form the new government should take and everybody had to compromise on something. Ultimately only thirty nine of the delegates actually signed the Constitution. Michael Montagne
The founding fathers had lots of visions for the future United States, and some of them might have liked America to wind up like the European Union. Benjamin Franklin might appreciate the modern European Union.
