Why is he so revered to this very day, apparently, even by the left?
Perhaps President Washington can help us Unify as a Country and get on the same page to resist the influences that threaten to destroy The United States of America.
Forget about us being "great" and all that stuff. We just need to be able to maintain our HOMELAND and its founding principles!
What does George Washington stand for? What is it about our very first President that we revere?
Is it merely a witty coincidence that the word 'Washington' sounds so similar to the compound noun, 'Washing-machine'?
Okay fine, The greatness of President H. Clinton. Why would she make a great President?
or maybe I should ask ...
because the basic principle of both of these two are that of washing out.. good and bad stuff, in their own order ;-)
… okay, can you elucidate further? what "own order"? what "good and bad stuff"? Or do you not know and you are just being poetic?
- are you a Democrat, Progressive, Liberal or Moderate? or none of these? Or is party affiliation irrelevant to your emerging explanation, (if you have one,)?
there need to be a (peacefully conducted) revolution, or something like that, frankly speaking.
The Genesis ~ and The Bhagavad Gita - though not even remotely related to each other, in terms of their production and producer(s) - speak of radical measures to 'balance' radical 'imbalances'. So, I guess it's a fundamental force latent in every consciousness, maybe?
My guess would be when I personally check out all the places on earth which are 'protected' from such imbalances. The ant colonies in the nearby forests, for example.
Well, funny you should mention that! From a local news paper:
"Recently, one native ant population in northern California actually developed a chemical secretion that kills other invasive ants." The author's commentary: "You can never predict the natural twists and turns of natural selection." :-)
Maybe native groups, such as the 'Native Americans', have a lot to offer us about learning what causes 'radical imbalances' ~ and how to cure them?
We are all learning, and becoming aware.
I wonder what the oai people have to say observing all of this and watching us fail. Its all so pathetic, it makes you want to cry.
I could never understand why they just didn't join us. Now I know why.
one of the many good things about Natives is that they never refuse to embrace :-)
These type of problems are of the mind, heart and soul. Perhaps only someone with an equally tender mind, heart and soul should ever dare to solve these
These pure and tender souls (in there exists, any) should become presidents. Not the other way round: we need not expect Obamas and Clintons to become pure and tender.
President Washington was like that, from what I have read. He was a man of his day as far as owning slaves, (edit: and dealing with the Indians,) but he had much compassion for them (edit: He had much compassion for Indians too, in the beginning.) and allowed their families (slaves) to stay together. He freed his slaves, (those he could legally free,) before he died.
He would go from church to church to get a sampling of what other denominations were preaching. He taught himself how to read/write and worked everyday in his library. He prayed every morning and every night. He asked God for guidance.
He was not afraid of bullets in battles. He'd be on his horse with bullets whizzing by, but never took one.
Those were the days, I'll say!

I wonder how Hillary would have dealt with the "Indians" back in the day.
Its amazing how the white man just moved right in and took over, isn't it?
And now look what we've done to this continent.
I am sad.
If President Washington came back to take a stroll through this country today he would probably wonder if all his efforts were worth it ...
He might go to every reservation and apologize.
He might ask the desendents of the original Asian immigrants how can we fix this mess.
They were here for centuries and we've messed things up in such a short time.
I think God is crying too.
One of the things I've always wondered is on the ways the Natives Indians cure the physically sick. I had to undergo a hernia surgery when I was 8 years old. I wonder what they might have done to me if I were born to a Native Indian community.
Apart from that ~ I really admire their culture, and might live happily as a Native Indian for the next ten years of my life.
You could have/probably would have died. Or maybe you wouldn't have had a hernia at such a young age on a more natural diet!
Really? How? Living as a "Native Indian?" Some can't stand the words Native or Indian.
I call them OAI People. Original Asian Immigrant People. They called themselves "People."
Today they are descendants of the OAI People. Some say, "indigenous" people
I too had thought about that point, and find it valid, upto a certain extent. My own personal experience in life has taught me that many physical diseases occur as a rebellion of the spirit, against the contractions that a 'modern world' imposes upon us.
That said, considering the makeup of the human anatomy, I do not find it realistic to believe that no one of the Native Americans had ever had a hernia or such diseases (that required surgery). I've always wondered how they manage such cases.
They were very fit and strong.
The California Indians worked to find and locate what they needed and once they were satisfied, they would play, relax, have a good time, make love … and gamble! They loved gambling!
Californians (in the 30's- 70's) used to have a good time. Now they (we) just work. Work or die.
So on that happy note, good night. Thanks for the prompts, GS.
Excluding their medical expertise ~ their culture is excellent.
One last thought - perhaps I wouldn't stand being a Native American for more than 10 years. I'd be missing helicopter rides and internets!
God shet has been banned from HubPages?
Did I miss something?
That's too bad , he was a little edgy but hey , he commented on a couple of my hubs , I think we could have brought him around to being perhaps a bit less edgy . What is this banning thing anyway ! Aren't we all adults here ?
You know Kathryn , I found that I carried the same feelings about GW. many years ago and being a semi- pro historian LOL, I find that the more I read about our first president , the more I admire him too ! The years of pre-during -post revolutionary war[s] was extremely trying , politically . Yet not only did he handle the military side of that , but he excelled at the political part AND the people just loved and admired him as well , it seems anyways
I had relatives that served in the French and Indian and Revolutionary War, I have also found that my great, great grandfather was named for him as were many, many soldiers sons and grandsons ! In fact there are so many George Washington Smith's and Jones named for him it actually makes genealogy a bit difficult at times .re
I actually have a distant cousin or an uncle that was on G.W 's Life Guards AND kept a journal ! The Life Guards were about two hundred hand picked soldiers chosen to guard him all during the war ! I have read his journals and they are in print . Yeaa - he's my hero too.
Wow, ahorseback. I have a distant cousin on my mother's side that fought in the revolutionary war.
I have a picture of him in a locket.
We come by our patriotism honestly.
Yes we sure do , and rightfully so . You know , I figure how can a simple man like me ever question patriotism when I look at my own family history , the French and Indian wars , King Georges War , the Revolutionary war , the civil war , WWI, WWII , Viet- Nam and now the gulf wars , my families history is far bigger that I am ! And certainly far bigger than all the nay - sayers . ..........:-}
