The entire internet is all over Sarah Palin again. People are pissed at her comments on Paul Revere, when she said, that Paul Revere did the midnight ride to warn people that the British were coming. My thoughts, that I think she is probably right. She’s a smart woman who knows American history better than anybody. That is why people are mad at her, because she is right.
When you want to be a politician, you have to know American history well. So they are not going to make things up about our past. Those who thinks she’s wrong are probably uneducated people themselves. This whole thing was blown out of proportion, I think. People misunderstood what she was trying to say.
Everything she says is right.
Straight from the wikipedia itself:
As a result, his “midnight ride” to warn the people that the British forces were coming is a legendary part of United States history.
The British were going to destroy weapons from Concord and all military stores. Paul did the “Midnight Ride” to try and stop that from happening, by warning people. The British were also going to capture Sam Adams and John Hancock.
What Sarah means, that if Paul Revere didn’t do what he did, then we would have no 2nd amendment rights. Paul Revere was the one who inspired the 2nd Amendment rights . The British would have had taken control of the weapons. Things would have been different today if Paul didn’t do the Midnight Ride. He did it to fight for “freedom” like she said.
Think long and hard on how she is right about everything she said. He’s the founding father of the 2nd amendment right. If it wasn’t for Paul Revere, we wouldn’t have our rights to bear arms.
She still gets my support.
