Happy Fourth of July, Internet! I have to say, our founding fathers did us a solid with our Constitution. I'm a big fan. Longest continuously operating democracy FTW!
What I do have a difficult time with is people who purport to know exactly what the founders would think of modern day issues. Thing one: "the founders" didn't think one single thing. They thought lots of things. Mutually opposing things quite often. What they gave us is the result of their ability to compromise, which is a skill that doesn't seem to get as much respect as it should in the political arena today.
Thing two: the founders were smart enough to realize that they could never foresee all of the issues that would arise in the future, so they wrote ambiguity into the document to give us freedom to adapt to changing times. Thomas Jefferson wrote:
I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.
So no, I don't believe anyone knows for sure how Jefferson and his fellow founders would have felt about today's issues.
Except I'm sure they'd want to remind you to celebrate responsibly. And remember, red wine with burgers, white with potato salad. And don't forget the sparklers.
