Twitter stocks are apparently down 4% as of 8PM and are expected to drop Monday, heh.
You're asking me to disseminate a topic that could take up an entire university course and several historical documents into 1 post, anon. The entire arguments that the founding fathers created were just a means of justifying criminal action in order to avoid retribution from the crown. Just look at the original
constitution. "The People" did not include everyone, and the people it did include did not have the ridiculous levels of power your average homeless man today has over the government. James Madison, the man who handled all the compromises and negotiations to make the constitution a reality, described governing officials as the natural aristocracy among men.
The idea that all men were equal was a farce. The deep philosophical roots of English Democracy (the philosophy of democracy, not the system, which was Republicanism) originated an idea of "equality" in the sense that no men should be prevented
to the natural aristocracy based on [X] and that no legally guaranteed position of nobility should exist without the consent of man. What the founders defined as those who could vote was left up to the individual states, but was overwhelmingly recognized as being those who owned property or who had a reasonable stake in the nation's future.
Originally only the house of representatives was actually elected by that limited sect of people. The senate was originally elected by an even smaller sect of people who were supposed to represent the interests of the local state governments (thanks for fucking it up, Lincoln). English Democracy was very much a philosophy of natural rulers acting in an aristocratic fashion so long as they were deemed mentally fit to continue to hold their positions and sound of reasoning in their decisions. Many of the concepts that ruined the philosophy of democracy as described by old English philosophers came from the French, funnily enough, who also developed a philosophy of democracy along very different
lines that eventually led to the French Revolution. They would later go on to kill the English philosophy of Democracy through the 1800s until it was basically dead by the time WWI happened. America as its original concept died with Lincoln's power grab and began to fester in the early 1900s. Today's government are just carrion eating what little remains of the corpse. That is why I said the founders would laugh at us since they would not consider us Americans but rather something akin to the mockery that was Charlemagne pretending to be Rome.
