    In articles and speeches, on radio and TV, conservatives are working to redefine major turning points and influential figures in American history, often to slam liberals, promote Republicans and reinforce their positions in today's politics.

    The Jamestown settlers? Socialists. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton ? Ill-informed professors made up all that bunk about him advocating a strong central government.

    Theodore Roosevelt ? Another socialist. Franklin D. Roosevelt ? Not only did he not end the Great Depression, he also created it.

    Geez...that's a really good article, Flex. Thanks for posting it. Scary stuff.

    I've been ranting over on another thread about the need to teach our own kids spelling and grammar because the schools aren't stressing it any longer. Now it looks like we'll have to teach them history, too.
