Virginia’s Signers – Let us never forget

Virginia’s Famous Signers

” . . . we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

In the crucial decade before the American Revolution, Williamsburg was a training ground for a remarkable body of men. When it became clear that war with Great Britain could not be avoided, George Wythe, Richard Henry Lee, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas Nelson, Francis Lightfoot Lee, and Carter Braxton met in Philadelphia with representatives from other colonies to declare independence from the mother country. On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence and took the first momentous step toward establishing a new nation.

George Washington did not sign the Declaration of Independence because in July 1776 he was in New York preparing to defend Manhattan against the British.

  1. Only the left wants you to forget OUr founding fathers ,they deliberatly try to ignore their word or try and chane their meaning. Always go and get the orignal writtings to see waht the really said.

  2. Keith,

    Kinda dusty here , if anything i’d expect supporters to still be posting. then again maybe after 18 months of the blame game folks are burned out.

    Nevada senate race will be key.

    • nevada will send reid home for good . and you dear leader will be handed his bottom this november . then we can restore the Constitution to its rightful place.

      1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
      2. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong
      3. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
      4. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
      5. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.
      6. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
      7. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
      8. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
      9. You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
      10 You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they will not do for themselves.

  3. 15934 dang it i forgot

    • dang also for got – SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS

  4. You’d think that accident involing the illegal and the nuns would have a thread created here.

    But for some reason there is none.

    Hmm

    Grant 15964

  5. Plus i have also noticed how the current political leadership of Va ( Gov Bob McDonnel (R) ) has been keeping rather quiet about this new story despite it involving an illegal. This is depite his support for Ken Cuccinelli’s vocal comments about the ariz law.

    Hmm

    Grant 15964

  6. Plus the more Ironic thing about the illegal and nuns incident is the fact how the illegal was released post his June conviction.

    Since this happened on Mcdonnell’s watch perhaps he needs top come clean how this illegal ended out of jail and on the roads in va.
    Why do i suspect Ken Cuccinelli will be reminded to keep tabs on the folks his dept oversees instead of goin around making speechs.After all it IS his dept to run effectively ,abd if he is allowing distractions to interfere on his job perfoemance it will in a very short time render him as unreliable.

    Grant 15964

    • McDonnell di not have anything to do with his release , it was a judge that did that ,(if facts be known the judge is probely a judge put in office by warner or kaneor rob or bililes or wilder .)

      • I’m going to love this and so will you Keith. Hey grant, I had the pleasure of running into a homeland security employee at wal mart. according to her, the “catch and release” policy came down from JANET NAPOLITANO”S office. She has seen the paperwork. By the way, her job is DEPORTING illegals which she can’t do and she can’t stand Napolitano nor Obama. And another thing, she’s AFRICAN AMERICAN! When speaking about her C-in-C she dropped the F bomb like a construction worker and called him everything under the sun! But because of UCMJ she can’t speak out about the TRUTH.

  7. And in conclusion as this thread points out , all politics starts on the local level . And if you are ineffective on the local level , you have no hope for any chance on the national level

    Grant 15964

    • “And if you are ineffective on the local level , you have no hope for any chance on the national level ”

      Unless of course you can perpetrate election fraud on a large enough scale.

  8. On a side note

    I wonder what Gov Brewer of Ariz is gonna do about the situation of tohse 3 excapees , and the after effects of their escape.

    Then again i didnt serve on the juries that rendered them their verdicts but it would be interesting to see how this gets spinned.

    Grant 15964

    • you do know that many escapes also have ocurred under democrats here in VA , and you hero (timmie boy)Kane had several ,but i didn’t blame him .

      • Really ?? who were they ?

        Grant
        16090

      • I don’t know the name all i Remmeber is it was in the southwestern Va .
        again I did not blame Timmie boy , It was a failure of the warden and his staff. also I believe there was one under Warner, and Gilmore and Allen still not their falt it was the Wardens and staff.
