    Amazing how he could predict something like that about 230 years ago.
    I think America needs to re-look at some of the things Washington did, and said.

    And stop using the Constitution as just a guideline. It's the country's platform. It IS the law.

    George Washington also said never form long term alliances with other countries... Yes he was right on many things but we must understand this is a changing world and some of his advice is out of date.

    The advice in it's original context may be out of date, but the concepts are still (or at least should be) the same.

    If I remember correctly (based off like 4th grade history), the original makeup of Congress was supposed to be the farmer down the road or the local area's baker. It was not intended to be a paid job, but more of a collection of opinions in order to decide an appropriate course of action. I agree with Atex; they should all quit/be fired.
