Here's how Conservatives would talk if they were alive in Washington's time: ” Washington is an Elite, easy coast, big government tyrant! His violent actions during Shays Rebellion shows that he will tax us excessively, by force if necessary.”

I'm sure that you're trying to be clever, but I've got news for you -- you missed.
Many conservatives point to great modern men and leaders, such as Ronald Reagan, as models we can follow, and I concur with their sentiments. But I think the best leaders lived long ago, during the founding of our republic, away from the limelight and luster of today's politics and Washington drama.

With Feb. 18's being Presidents Day and Feb. 22's being the actual day George Washington was born, I thought there would no better time to honor the man I consider to be one of the greatest leaders ever born. And I'm going to take a few weeks (columns) to do it.
