Your ancestors before you? Would that be the Indians, Primates, or Slave owners? Which ones were yours?
Farmers, Ranchers, Pioneers, Colonists, Soldiers (Redcoats, Bluecoats, Union and Confederacy), Frontiersmen, Gold miners, Lawmen, Clergymen, Puritans, Huguenots, Businessmen, Politicians and Founders from both the North and South. Three of the signers of the Declaration of Independence are possibly distant cousins to my family. While I am not proud of it, yes, some of them were infact slave owners. And yet there is a twist, my people on my Asian side were slaves to the Japs before WWII. While I don't aprove of everything that they did from both blood lines, they are still family, and <snip> proud of 'em! Before you try and label me a racist, I could care less about someone's skin color, the only thing that matters is if they have good character.
So... what do you know about your own ancestry? Progressives, Liberals or Marxists?
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. ~Ronald Reagan
"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." ~Wolfgang von Goethe
"It's preferable to be harmlessly paranoid than fatally stupid." ~Anonymous
