No Paine, No Gain: A July 4th Special

July 4, 2008

An Independence Day look back at the radical influence of Thomas Pain, the often overlooked founding father whose words sparked the American Revolution.

I have very few heroes. But, I unabashedly adore Thomas Paine. I could point to The Rights of Man, Common Sense, or Thoughts on Defensive War, or the many other writings of Paine that have had a profound influence in my life.

Perhaps that is why I despise the Rovian politics of today so much and those who endorse them.

Enjoy the video.



  1. Hi,
    I noticed that you had posted this great video and wonder how you were able to do it as I have tried various ways to post it to my blog without success. Would love if you could share how to do it! Thanks!
