Today's Politics are contentious at best and certainly not civil, nor polite. However we just may be spoiled as our founding fathers were even more so belligerent in their politics and yet they had the same goals and objectives. Imagine these founders forged a Bill of Right's, Constitution and acts of war.
Yet these brilliant freedom seekers could not deal with slavery, solved disputes with a slap and pistol duels. The Federalist Papers and oft penned publications by Ben Franklin were circulated to subversively deal issues of the day. Does these publications compare with the media outlets we have today leaning in every other direction?
Polite, Civil, Tolerant, Correct; Not then and not now.
