Our founding fathers also had slaves. So what they may have envisioned is not always what we should consider as good. But what they wrote and passed for our nation should, and it does not prohibit social programs.<quoted text>
I concur. I find it hard to believe that our founding forefathers had the debacle of what we call America now in mind when they wrote the Declaration of Independence. I also find it strangely perculiar everyone wants things done now, fight wars where no one gets hurt, gays to "marry" and want to redistribute wealth meanwhile having the straightest face or acting like those social agendas/ideas are ok. I have all ideas the founding forefathers and alike colonials didn't factor in any of those social ideas when they wrote the Constitution or Bill of Rights. Since the majority of Americans feel differently or feel the republicans are the ones with the problem, I will compromise and do what is in the best interest of my family.
Fortunately for my family I was prudent in my choice of higher education. I think our road is leading us to Singapore instead of the Carribbean. No capital gains taxes and I know a guy in Janus Corporate Solutions.
The founding fathers lived in an age that was somewhat primitive in relation to today. What someone may have predicted or envisioned in such primitive times is relative.
Good luck in that nation you move to that holds your values more so than modern America. Maybe you can find one that allows slavery.
