Rich old white guys

We got into an minor debate at work, and my opponent opined that the founding fathers were simply rich white guys who stood to make money from a war because wars always bring money.

He is misguided on a few points, but this was totally off.

I dug up this old video and sent him the link.

I can't watch the video but here is a link summarizing the fates of the Founders. I keep in handy for anyone who would dare state that the "rich old white guys" were in it for the money.

They paid. Dearly.

I correct myself. My link, although good reading, is mostly urban myth. I was wrong.

Here is the corrected history. Research before posting.
