Actually, I'm pretty sure that we're a nation of laws founded on freedom and law to ensure that freedom.

Very true. However, this notion that our nation was founded by upstanding citizens is also false. This nation was founded by slave-owners and smugglers. People don't like to admit that, though.

I'd like to see someone stand up and say this line: We were founded as a nation of slave owners and smugglers, and as slave owners and smugglers we must stand.
