I’m not sure what they would be disappointed with. Conservatives and libertarians may feel they would be disappointed with how big government became and how dependent we are on it. Liberals no doubt think it would be how a few seems to have influence over the many.

I think they’d be pretty happy that their experiment has lasted this long.

  1. This is NOT the America I grew up in and served to protect….Proud to be American……Not proud of America or what we’ve become.

  2. Our “Founding Fathers” would be disgusted by the influence corporate America, special interests and Christianity have over our branches of government. “We the People” has been replaced with money, power and corruption. What’s more shameful is a lot of Americans blindly follow and fail to question. “We” need to hold politicians accountable. “We” should start with Scott Walker.
