Nobody's Opinion

Comparing the 1st Congress to the Last

Nobody Remembers

When John Adams went to the first assembly of the Continental Congress, he wrote a letter to his wife, and had THIS to say, about the members of Congress:

I am determined to write freely to you at this time.

The fidgets, the whims, the caprice, the vanity, the superstition, the irritability of some of us is enough to ….” he wrote, and complained bitterly of the position into which Congress had got itself—“between hawk and buzzard” …by its delay and incompetence.”  John Adams

Unfortunately, these letters were intercepted by the British on their way to Boston from Philadelphia, and published.

While, that did NOT make him very popular with the member of Congress, no man was on more committees. He was the real founder of the Navy, and was chairmen of no less than 25 committees, all which had to be invented from scratch.

And the task of forcing the Declaration through Congress fell wholly on Adams.

He was the hardest working member of Congress, and without John Adams, George Washington would not have stepped on the stage.

And yet, no monument for Adams in Washington D.C…which tells you how the buzzards controlled history.

John was the American nobody, who, with hard work, and guts, and wisdom, brought the country to birth. He was the quintessence of the American spirit, which still survives to this day.

This nobody believes, that he would have the VERY same words about our Congress were he alive today.

The very same words. Only, today, they might be worse.

Trust me…. he would make President Trump seem tame.
