Browsing: Founding Fathers

Over the last six years, America has faced intense political divisions. The rhetoric hasn’t helped though it might be good for at least one political party. Last week, the country witnessed what many said was an embarrassment after 20 conservatives united against Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for Speaker of the House.

Today, I’m asking, was what happened last week by design? Did the Founding Fathers intend to use factions to control and limit a majority or the government as a whole?

Over the last several decades, America has watched as politicians and government officials failed the country. Scandals have grown too numerous to count in recent years. Today’s politics has morphed into a seesaw of which political party can race to the corrupt bottom the fastest and take voters with them through bribes and empty promises. The American Revolution sought to unleash merit, competition, honor, interest, and patriotism. It appears we are headed in the opposite direction. Let’s dive in and consider if the Framers better understood our world better than we understand it ourselves.
