    It makes every bit of sense to me. And I don't even believe in it.

    Frankly, this kind of rhetoric gets on my nerves every bit as much as those who shout about godless atheists going to hell for not loving Jesus. The difference is that I hear much much more from the former, and haven't really encountered much of the latter.

    They needed to get the Constitution ratified by the South. That wouldn't have happened if they'd abolished slavery right off the bat.

    That's like trying to argue that since the "Founding fathers" were white Europeans, that we therefore are a white/anglo country.

    1. They didn't get slavery abolished even though most wanted to.

    What's the second Founders idea that you disagree with?
