Examples of founding in a Sentence

  1. Lisel Hintz:

    The border Jens StoltenbergFacts refers to -- the Turkish-Syria border -- was established in 1923 with the Treaty of Lausanne and the founding of the Republic of Turkey. The exception to this is the province of Hatay, which passed from Syrian to Turkish control following a referendum.

  2. Tom Daschle:

    It's a very unfortunate evolution in that the checks and balances that our Founding Fathers had so emphasized... have been diminished if not completely eliminated, there are very few checks and balances today in large measure because of the unswerving loyalty and commitment the Republican caucus has made to President Donald Trump over and above their commitments to the role and the character of Powerful Senate. It's been a diminution in stature, in authority... in the ability of our constitutional order to provide the kind of real balance and oversight that is so critical to good government.

  3. Van Drew:

    At the end of the day, nobodys ever been convicted, theres a reason for that. Our founding fathers had tremendous concern with the idea of impeachment. The idea of taking an elected leader regardless of how good or poor you think that elected leader is, out of office and disenfranchising hundreds of millions of voters does a lot that isnt so good for this country.

  4. Ronald Reagan:

    The freedom fighters of Nicaragua ... are the moral equal of our Founding Fathers and the brave men and women of the French Resistance.

  5. Bert Rand:

    Don't forget that pure democracy is a form of collectivism -- it readily sacrifices individual rights to majority wishes. Since it involves no constitutional bill of rights, or at least, no working and effective one, the majority-of-the-moment can and does vote away the rights of the minority-of-the-moment, even of a single individual. This has been called 'mob rule,' the 'tyranny of the majority' and many other pejorative names. It is one of the greatest threats to liberty, the reason why America's founding fathers wrote so much so disparagingly of pure democracy.
