#MakeAmericaSmartAgain Read about Benedict Arnold

In the revolutionary war, Arnold "turned coat" against the Americans, and essentially joined the British, thus being called a traitor to his country. 

But the story isn't quite as simple as that, and is worth a read.  He did attempt to aid the British by turning over West Point, where he held the head post, and then snuck out of New York.  He ultimately made his way onto a British ship and sailed to England where he lived out the remainder of his life.

The lame list

I can put up with differing points of view, but be prepared to defend your premise; don't just throw something out there without supporting evidence.

And don't bother even starting a conversation if you doubt science, believe in flat earth, doubt the moon landing, or just generally believe in fairytales.

Keep an open mind and maybe get off the internet once in a while....
