This country was FOUNDED BY THEM. They FOUGHT AND DIED so that you could freely malign them from the comfort of your private property. Their opinions are not more important, but they are certainly still relevant.Doesn't sound at all absurd to me. Certainly no more so than the idea that the opinions of men who've been dead for 200 years should count for more in how we run our country than the opinions of people alive today who actually have to live here.
You're just a typical liberal ingrate.
That's precisely what you're saying. If you think we should totally disregard the views of our Founders when interpreting the document THEY WROTE then you're throwing that part of our history into the dustbin.I didn't say that.
What's creepy about maximizing individual liberty!? Is there something wrong with wanting to be left alone by intrusive government and liberal busy-bodies?Your views creep me out just as much.
How Orwellian of you...
