Today the Founding Fathers Were Invoked…

founding-fathers-strip

For never imagining that Americans would demand the right to hunt turkeys

For giving Congress the power to tax

For making “archetypal contributions” to the United States

For their desire to protect and defend local militias

For bestowing freedoms on us

For rejected the idea of standing army

For believing that a free press served as a “watchdog over those in power

For having wisdom to take ideas from the Greeks and Romans

For being unable to predict the existence of AR-15 rifles or the Internet

For being unable to imagine a president who constantly switches residences

For declaring the “all men are created equal

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?
