Today’s leaders are not the best and brightest. There are no James Monroes, Thomas Jeffersons, Sam Adams, or Benjamin Franklins in our government. I doubt if most of them that are there have read Locke, Rousseau, or Hobbs. Or even the Federalist Papers for that matter. The best minds of the twenty first century are not attracted to Washington.
They need to keep their hands OFF the Constitution.
Honestly, I think the Antifederalist Papersare a bit more relevant and insightful.
I agree completely that the best and brightest are not attracted to D.C.
Which is probably the way it should be...they should be members of the civil society, making their mark as businesspeople, scientists, and (commonsensical) thinkers, not rulers.
BUT a few should want to do a term of service as a Representative the same as people do an enlistment in the Army...but they are not attracted to D.C. because it is such a den of vile vultures, elected with the aid of slanderers like David Axelrod, who could turn Mother Teresa into a demon.
It requires a few believers in constitutional principles to go to D.C. to ensure the Constitution is upheld...and pry the hands of the scoundrels off of it.
My point is: this noble document has been so adulterated by people who lack honor and virtue that its principles need to be reaffirmed in a stronger document...or we are doomed as a Free people.
