Just wondering but why does it matter what the founders intended? Even if what you're saying is true. It's been over 240 years, I don't think anyone should take their word as infallible anymore. The world is too different.
I don't believe that the people who created one of the most important and intelligent documents known to man should have their ideals tossed to the wind as casually as some people like to do.
Also, you're not even responding to what I've suggested. You're merely taking issue with the parties I'm using as sources. That's kind of stupid.
Well I agree with what you said I was just curious as to why you're invoking the founding fathers rather than letting the idea stand on its own. Also, those man didn't even follow their own ideals, so it's fair to say others following them shouldn't be the be all end all.
True enough. I'm not saying we follow them because it's what they said, merely because what they intended was actually a pretty good idea.
