The political philosophy of America’s Founding Fathers is so thoroughly buried
under decades of statist misrepresentations on one side and empty lip-service
on the other, that it has to be re-discovered, not ritualistically repeated.
It has to be rescued from the shameful barnacles of platitudes now hiding it.
It has to be expanded—because it was only a magnificent beginning, not a
completed job, it was only a political philosophy without a full
philosophical and moral foundation, which the “conservatives” cannot provide.
