Thanks mate for the kind words. Down here we have to do a lot for ourselves because our arms industry is crap compared to the US . We do make excellent smokeless powders though but not much else for small arms .
If we were really all that smart down here we would be a lot bigger stronger country by now .
We unfortunately have never had people with the foresight , dedication and patriotism of the calibre of John Dickinson, Governor Morris, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Thomas Paine, Edmund Randolph, James Madison, Roger Sherman, James Wilson, and George Wythe. Who wrote the Constitution to form our national pride .
My Grandfather was an early settler in Hood River Oregon and I still have his citizenship papers. The wording of the document sends a tingle up my spine , it just exudes patriotism and national pride .
