    dupont2005 knows the score:

    Ben Franklin's job during the revolution was to go to France and bang as many social elites as he could to drum up support for the new nation.
    Fuck yeah, "Salon politics" at its finest. Ben off at parties making things happen while sour puss John Adams took traditional routes and accomplished zip.

    Exactly...though in a geek filled comic board most of us have probably rewatched some far more recently.

    A lot of the problems and "problems" of today were around Way Back When. The thing is that we talk about them now....

    Much of it is the rural/urban thing. They fear all the menaces of the Big City (including minorities and non-christians) forcing some manner of deviancy down the throat of Real America.

    The thing that gets me is how the clean cut people in suits attempting to fix elections get so much less attention than the black guy in a beret helping old ladies into the voting areas.

    To be fair, Eisenhower did balance the budget. Even if it was by doing the exact opposite of everything modern Republicans want to do to balance it.

    A lot of respected Republicans back then would feel like spitting on today's crew.

    Probably the reason we can call them respected without breaking down laughing.

    We should create a new meme, "We Want the 50's Republicans Back."

    I wouldn't go that far. With the Eisenhowers we'd also get the Nixons and the McCarthys.

    America's public schools used to be the envy of much of the world.

    Queensland used to have a single public school that went past Grade eight.

    State High was regarded as dangerously progressive and arousing unrealistic expectations.
