So... The founders, who were infinitely more familiar with, infinitely closer to and the subjects of... tyranny than you will ever be. The founders who cast a long eye to history and its lessons, who correctly identified many common failures to each attempt at government through the centuries... The historical constants of human nature... The funders whose greatness was not that they were smarter, or more moral, or even right... It's that they had the intellectual honesty to say, we who gather to institute a new government are just as flawed and ambitious as all that came before us, and all that will come after.
From that they set out, not to repeat past mistakes of others, but to attempt to safeguard us from ourselves and the tendency for all civilizations to peak and quickly burn out.
We can let a bunch of history channel educated wiki scholars pretend they're going to get one over on the founders by pandering to self interest
But, I'd be open to some negotiation... Like, I'd support your suggestion of elected justices if you supported taking all political donations over $5000 and super PACs out of the equation.
