A Revelation

Several of the founding fathers (and, subsequently, early Presidents of the United State) were land surveyors. Throughout its infancy, though plagued by foreign agitation and internal disagreements, the country remained cohesive and cogent.

Only after the people began electing lawyers and accountants to the highest office did things begin to rapidly decay. Suddenly, men who had not done an honest day's work in all their lives were commanding authority over an entire country.

Perhaps if a few more states elected surveyors and engineers, men of character and ethics, those states would find the strength to deny the federal government and form a new, liberty-minded country based on the framers' designs.
