We tried this experiment last week. Let’s try it again.
In the last 24 hours, the so-called “Founding Fathers” of the United States were invoked
For their use of Madeira wine
For limiting the freedom of police
For their apparent opposition to the 16th amendment
For their apparent opposition to the 17th amendment
For their commitment to checks and balances
For their belief in the exercise of personal will and reliance upon God
For their belief in a two-party system
For their support of diversity in the military
For their support of “Constitutional Carry”
For their support of healthcare
And we could go on. The Founders are invoked every day. Isn’t it time we invest in American history so that when we do invoke the Founders we do so responsibly?
