  • He was a slave owner. Why would I want to vote for HIM?

  • I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want a 284-year-old as president. But still, even being 284 years old, he would make a better president than Hillary.

  • He was a piece of crap like all military and political jerk offs.

Washington was a traitor.

@SegBeg Slavery was an institution that was practiced and even embraced by the British colonial overlords. Washington and many other founding fathers however eventually realized slavery was wrong in a society where it was embraced. You have to give them credit for this, and you can't just demonize them over something that they were encouraged to do by the British.

I also find it very disgusting how you could disrespect a man like that who was considered to be the father of our country.

@Triangle.128k, I'm not American- I'm British and i no way am I disrespecting George Washington- i Know he was responsible for the founding of America and I respect him for that. To be honest, I don't know if i would vote for him today. And besides, I'm not American so I wouldn't be able to even if I wanted to.

@SegBeg You're still accusing him of being a slave owner when he was opposed to it and figured out it was bad in a society where it was encouraged.

@triangle.128k, well I apologize. I don't know that much about American history in politics. I only did the American West.

Still better then thomas jefferson who had an affair with a slave woman and had 6 children with her and yet still believed in racial superiority

@DOS *sigh* Why do so many statists hold so much disregard for many of our country's founders? Big deal not every one of them were perfect.

@NLC I mean if he was given time and he adjusted to modern society.

@triangle.128k Sure. I was just joking. He's better than Hillary (and Trump), so why not?
