"As we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of the opportunity provided to serve self-interest when Al Gore created the internet; and we should also thank Mark Zuckerburg and Jack Dorsey for creating Facebook and Twitter out of the kindness of their big hearts and not the thinness of their small wallets."
-Ben Franklin, Autobiography (1742)

President's Day 2011

Thomas Jefferson once said that, "honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom," we here at 'Lost and Founders' hope that this is the only actual quote from a Founder that you read on our blog. We are dedicated to the idea that the Founders of our country were great people. We are not here to debate their faults or delve into their short comings and inadequacies, many that they had. Rather, we are here to make light of the country that they left us, the freedoms that we have been given: Freedom of Speech, Right to Assemble, etc...we are here to thank them for the fact that they questioned the established order and created a new society founded on the ideals of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. We, at 'Lost and Founders,' would like to dedicate our life (at least part of it) to utilizing our liberty to create happiness for others. We have spent hours upon hours studying with meticulous detail the works and letters of our Founding Fathers. In many occasions we have found that the history books had it wrong. Whether it be several words, or entire paragraphs we are here to set the record straight. In many occasions, as you will see, the Founders discussed and even predicted the future of our country discussing policies, pop culture and much much more. In short, we are here to bring you the Lost Letters of our Founders.
Forever and always,
