I love this quote !

Too bad he was a piece of crap

Nice quote though.

that made no sense,

What do you mean?

Why don't you like Thomas Paine?

I hate to do this

But, I need clarification.

You are saying that the man responsible for the philosophy of the American Enlightenment, the man that inspired Thomas Jefferson in all his reasoning of the new governing concepts, the man that detailed the grievances against the king long before the Declaration of Independence, the man that essentially wrote a butress for what is spoken about here every day on Daily Paul - that guy was a piece of crap?

Thanks.
