    I don't think Gordon is emotionally capable of tempering his replies. Even if there were some "smart and knowledgeable" content in there, it's lost in the constant stream of insults.

    Well, they didn't "despise" standing armies, and they didn't equate a standing army to a professional military- e.g. there were no restrictions placed on the Navy.
