    **** the Founding Fathers

    If they were so smart, how come they didn’t foresee where the US finds itself today?

    Tough day? Shut off the computer and just relax!
    Attorney General William Barr: “The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of 'Resistance' against this Administration,
    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.”

    There was no way to cover every contingency.

    The FF never envisioned someone as corrupt as Donald Trump as president nor a Senate as ethically emasculated as the GOP majority 116th.


    Has Trump expressed any sympathy to the families of the COVID dead yet?

    The country only had a population of 4 million people back then, they couldn't even envision a toaster never mind foresee the type of corruption on a scale that's only been possible because of the modern era. The founding fathers did their best but there was no way they could envision that the country would grow to 327 million people and bring with it all the progress, industrialization, regulations, and men with evil intent. Progress and growth led to greed and corruption of the sort that could only be realized by men living in the modern era.

    You can vote them out in a few months if you so choose. See the forefathers already gave you the ability to change things. The problem with lefties is essentially this. You have no idea how to cope with the reality of not getting your way. Sorry the forefathers did not plan for participation award leaders.
