Should America return to the era of 1776?

Posted by: Varrack

Muskets, carriages, and patriotism for the win. Not to mention the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and rad Founding Fathers. Am I right?

  • 'Murica.

  • If we could go back there knowing what we know now, that'd be good. If we could go back there just because ... and repeat everything ... that'd be good too. At least we'd be guaranteed more good years than bad before the New Deal came around again.

  • Absolutely.

Wasn't China the richest nation during that era?

Probably, but if it weren't for 1776, they would've stayed at the top to this day.

I may be evil, but when I am done fixing all the crap the conservatives have messed us, you will be happy and well fed on bugs.

@TBR - while this poll isn't completely serious (of course I like cars and electricity), I do think there are some ideals from 1776 that America should keep in order to stay great.

@TBR What happens if we hate that new crap and we want it gone.
stargate says2015-09-14T10:35:08.3819647Z
We should stick to our traditions.
TBR says2015-09-14T13:15:51.3522878Z
That's fine, but I can't see objecting flush toilets, or penicillin.

@stargate If by tradition you mean progress, then yeah.
TBR says2015-09-14T14:32:36.8995913Z
If I were going back to 1776, you would be calling me lord Ragsdale...
