federalists and anti-federalists....do you think the founders who framed the constitution were LIKE MINDED????
the constitution WAS WRITTEN BY OPPOSITE MINDED PEOPLE WHO COMPROMISED!!!!
and now supporters of the constitution claim there can be no middle ground or compromise?
the constitution was ALSO WRITTEN TO BE AMENDED!!!
many parts of the bill of rights and constitution are vague enough to merit DEBATE. just like any other piece of literature or law. and it has been debated since the founding of our country.....since the beginning folks!
a few facts many constitution supporters want to overlook these days...
the constitution would have never been written if the founders were a bunch of narrow minded people who refused to compromise on anything....they were quite the opposite actually....and their COMPROMISE was responsible for one of the most well thought out and revolutionary forms of government to that day....formed by groups of people who were on polar opposite ends....
but today...no talk...no compromise...no listening....political gridlock...team against team....how would the founders have viewed this attitude i wonder?
i'm afraid they would think we are both morons and cowards honestly. a group of close minded people who have lost both our ability to reason as well as our ability to fight.
"no middle ground"....i think the founders would GREATLY disagree myself...
