Would it be good for us to elect leaders with the traits of the forefathers?

Washington was not the sort of politician that you just rustle up from some ivy league school. Those men were overturning everything!

Traitors.

Today, we certainly don’t seem to elect that sort of daring leader. Which is strange considering how well we know our roots. So was the leadership style of the forefathers (not the content of the constitution) just a passing fad? They set it up and we just go along la-di-da….

I say no, rather they set a precedent. We should pick our leaders like they have the intestinal fortitude to lead us into that first revolution.

What do you think?
