lol, I think it's funny that you're poking fun at the psuedo-religious nature of nationalism in our country and the sort of divine respect we show for our 'founding fathers' and their 'enlightenment' ideas.

I'm not a big fan of Thomas Jefferson. I'm of the opinion that he's burning in Hell with Martin Luther.

I took offence at the minds irreligiosity. If anything the mind should be equal to the spirit in religious ferver as logical proofs for religion and the divine abound. Reason is the bedfellow of faith. Only Protestant Christianity forsakes reason. Catholisicm is the Champion of reason.

I'm not sure why Thomas Jefferson returned at the end. Did the spirit pray for his 'second coming'? Is this another play on the religiosity of nationalism? and why does the mind pray to the 'God-S'? I'm sure there are hidden meanings here...

I also am not a big fan of Ms. Clinton (I don't consider them to be married in the religious sense). Not because I disagree with her policies (which I'm sure I would), but for the simply reason that she's a woman. It's antithetical to the nature of womanhood to be in a position of leadership. Ultimate leadership such as the presidency requires a certain emascualization of character. But as she's the head of state as well, the moral character of our nation is reflected in our leaders. It would send a horrible message to young women if any woman became president.
