" Out of curiosity, where do you derive this? Which federalist papers, or other primary document provides for even one founder, much less a plurality of them to hold this opinion. Or is this your own assumption regarding what they believed? "

My life goal is to become the possible man I can be. Standing by what I believe in, supporting my family, protecting things and people dear to me and sacrificing myself if needed.

Most people my age I meet cannot relate to me this way and so I don't have anyone to talk to on the matter of manliness.
I have my own code and my definition by differ but I believe there are many different kids of men. Be it poets, warriors, artisans or stay at home fathers, there are different kind of men.

This may sound strange but since my father was usually at the office when I was younger, I found comfort and teachings from different sources. One of these sources though unorthodox and childish was Japanese Manga (comics). The common theme of fighting and protecting what is dear to you such as beliefs, friends and family were drilled into me after many years.

I played American Football for five years during high school and have to say that it truly molded me into who I am. The comradeship, the passion and the struggle all were amazing and those fives seasons were the best of my life.
Books
Due the Japanese influence on me, I idolize the Samurai, as such my two favorite books are
1. Hagakure
2. The Book of the Five Rings

Please suggest me books!

Many mangas.
Movies
Tropic Thunder
Ghost Dog
First Transformers
Music
Sabaton and ManOwaR are my two favorite metal groups
I especially enjoy 80's rock
Johnny Cash.

Hunting Big Game if you Could?

So imagine a world where elephants and rhinos and tigers and other big game of the 1800s HADN'T been hunted nearly to extinction.  Imagine we lived in a fictional world where all the big game animals of the earth were not endangered -- they were all of least concern.Holding this vision in mind, would you find it appealing to go hunt them?  It's interesting reading all the Allan Quatermain books because at times, he tells of the hunt with great thrill and excitement and at other times he talks…See More
