Founding Fathers

A deist? That's cool. I think many of the founding fathers were deist.

According to Wikipedia..

Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Cornelius Harnett, Gouverneur Morris, and Hugh Williamson. Their political speeches show distinct deistic influence.

Other notable Founding Fathers may have been more directly deist. These include James Madison, possibly Alexander Hamilton, Ethan Allen,[44] and Thomas Paine (who published The Age of Reason, a treatise that helped to popularize deism throughout the USA and Europe).

P.S. Thanks for the video! Sums up the left and right political system nicely.
