They would all say that American evolution can only come through legal Constitutional amendments and the Commerce clause is not a pathway to slavery. They would also like to see Flo from Progressive eaten by a Tiger.

It depends on what was in the hearts of those who died… the fact that our freedoms led us to the point where we now have the first African American President would be unbelievable to the dead - be they a supporter or opponent of it.
Now if they saw how the previous (Bush) Administration manipulated our freedoms in order to circumvent the Constitution with the Patriot Act and lie us into unnecessary wars then they would be beyond disgusted.

But at the end of the day it is future generations that has to build on what past generations did; and correct the wrongs along the way. And as the racist right died off the new demographics of this great country will do just that.

You mean like the clown that did not put his hand over his hart during the national anthem, the fruit loop that didn't salute the marine as required last week..........and the women that say ALL THIS FOR A FLAG..........MEN DIED DUE TO OBAMA'S STUPIDITY, and men died to give us freedom. Only one is worth the price.

They'd be disheartened to see our freedoms for which they gave their lives being trampled on and stripped away one by one by this horrible and corrupt dictatorial Obama Administration.

It is customary moron and if you go back and look at clips from Reagan, Clinton, Bush and Bush they all saluted. Maybe it was because he had the scandals on his mind.

Those same "t baggers" that fought in Viet Nam and Korea. You know. Under the proclamations of the nice progressive presidents who you love so much. You stole their wealth. You stole many of their retirements. You want to steal their social security and their medical. you want to take any dignity they have left from them. And your politicians put up a false wall of shock and defense as they really know the cost is going to be high for the boomer generation and slightly older for the next 30 years. So throw them away so we continue this great progressive experiment. In another decade or so, pedophiles will be accepted as the norm then the beastiality folks will show themselves for equality. it won;t get that far of course, as America will be struggling mightily economically and things will get quite ugly. But enjoy the years left. I am.

t-baggers didn't exist back then. They're a modern day creation of talk radio and bullshitmountainnews. All of those things you pontificate will be stolen, won't be stolen without going through today's t-bagging house.
