Were the Founding Fathers Socialists?

Posted by Troy on 2nd March 2013 in Political

A Liberal commentator thinks that the Founding Fathers were actually Socialists.  I will take the simple approach at refuting this charge.  Madison, specifically, stated that we would only have budgetary trouble if we placed no limits on the provisions that they were to provide for the common defense and general welfare.  Well, the Republicans have gone out of control thinking about defense…but the Democrats have gone to a different stratosphere on the general welfare.  In fact, they don’t even advocate general welfare.  They are advocating INDIVIDUAL welfare, which is truly limitless.

Long Live the Constitution!
