If the founding fathers were alive today, I am sure that they would be bloggers. Thomas Paine for sure. A blogger named Enlightened Despot has two blogs worthy of your attention, Thomas Jefferson Speaks and Alexander Hamilton Speaks, consisting of quotations from the writings of the great men. A sample:

Alexander Hamilton:

"As riches increase and accumulate in a few hands; as luxury prevails in society, virtue will be in a greater degree considered as only a graceful appendage of wealth, and the tendency of things will be to depart from the republican standard.”

"The rich must be made to pay for their luxuries; which is the only proper way of taking their superior wealth.”

Thomas Jefferson:

"And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter."
