"[T]hose white conservative losers who signed the Declaration of Independence and ratified the Constitution."
Those men were not CONSERVATIVES, they were LIBERTARIANS.
This is why the GOP is getting its a** handed to it in election after election. The only liberties that they espouse are economic and religious (which the latter has been perverted into evangelical booster-ism).
The GOP needs to find the libertarian roots of our country. You can't ague against government intrusion and size when you want to force your own conservative worldview on others. The GOP has turned into a bunch of hypocrites as bad as the prog-libs they oppose.
They all hate liberty and individual freedom.
