The Founding Fathers Don't Seem to Matter Much Anymore.

Liberals and moderates alike don’t seem to care what the founders thought about how this nation should be governed, other than to give lip service to the subject.  To them it’s all ancient history and of no value to their ‘modern wisdom’, whatever that is.

Even the continuity of the rational rule of law and the rights and constraints enshrined in our Constitution and the Bill of Rights are just a lot hokum to them. They care nothing of such things and would happily trade them for bench rulings based on arbitrary sentiment. They see the law and legal tradition, ethics and morality, and the lessons of history as expendable annoyances that hamper their ambitions for lucre and their indulgences in vice.  A pox on them.
