Either way, the founding fathers are dead, I am more concerned about your racist comment as shown in the post I quoted."I advance it therefore as a suspicion only, that the blacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in the endowments of both body and mind. It is not against experience to suppose, that different species of the same genus, or varieties of the same species, may possess different qualifications. Will not a lover of natural history then, one who views the gradations in all the races of animals with the eye of philosophy, excuse an effort to keep those in the department of man as distinct as nature has formed them? This unfortunate difference of color, and perhaps of faculty, is a powerful obstacle to the emancipation of these people."

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
His spoken suspicion taken out of context does not matter to what we are discussing.
That is who we are talking about.
If you want to discuss something else, take it elsewhere.
in 2012, one cannot be a Libertarian and yet support peoples' right to own slaves.
I would suggest you go back and reread what has been said again, because you are off base.
If they are considered non-human. Race doesn't apply.
The person I responded to wasn't.We are speaking during the time of the founders and how they viewed things.
Which is irrelevant due to the egalitarian nature of rights laws today. Next time read what I'm responding to.There are no Civil Rights to be applied if one is considered to be not human, not fully human, just humanoid, etc...
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
by modern definitions, anyone who owned slaves during the 18th century, was clearly NOT a Libertarian.
You responded to me. It was what I was addressing.
You fail to realize that.
IOt has no bearing on what I said. And you were responding to me.
So maybe you should read and comprehend that to which you are responding.
