Despite the fact that millions upon millions of people have such abysmally low standards (and/or intelligence) as to consider two of the most detested people in the country suitable for the Oval Office, there are are some smart people stockpiling enough Ambien to get them through the next election cycle.
One of my favorite smart people is Richard Feynman. He said, “The first principle is that you must not fool yourself – and you are the easiest person to fool.” “ He also stated, “This is the philosophy that guided the men who made the democracy that we live under. The idea that no one really knew how to run a government led to the idea that we should arrange a system by which new ideas could be developed, tried out, and tossed out if necessary, with more new ideas brought in — a trial and error system.” This is the ‘original intent,’ not the blathering of an unlamented Supreme Court Justice. This perspective destroys the entire concept of conservativism: idealizing the past and wanting to hold on to what you have when there is every hope that we can create more and better.
