Default Re: Secret Destiny of America

Kind of hard to believe that from Manly when the nation was founded by a bunch of Gentlemen farmers whose main concern was to keep their tea tax free.

Seriously, the founding fathers initialy wanted to have a friendly cesation from Great Britain and would have been happy to have a mutual cooperation pact with them. It was only after the British rejected their overtures that they need to get financial support from France and Spain and in order to do that they had to show more militant intentions, ergo the Declaration of Independence.

The whole notion of manifesdestiny was only dreamt up by the yellow press in order to build readership numbers.
