The other day I briefly saw a cartoon that went like this...
"That's not what the founding fathers intended."
"The founding fathers didn't intend women to vote. They didn't intend you to vote either since you are not a landowner, so I don't want to hear anything more about what the founding fathers intended."
In other words, we should throw away any constitutional limits on government power, which is what protects your rights, because the founding of this country was not perfect. This sounds like an excuse to give government unlimited power.
