Really this whole debate is about President Obama trying to mandate equal responsibility for all isn’t it? He says, ‘look, we all use it, one group of people shouldn’t have to pay for everybody else, so we all have to be responsible for ourselves.’

I mention all of these warts and flaws not because these four men didn’t live exceptional lives. Nothing could be further from the truth. No, I bring these facts forward because they were able to sign (and in Jefferson’s case, write) a document that declares the equality of all men, while owning slaves (save Adams) and attempting to eradicate the existence of the indigenous people (minus Adams and Franklin) whom they found on “their” land. I think it’s fair to say, that their interpretation of the constitution was as elastic as the times warranted. Which in some ways, makes them as jacked up as anyone else.
