What type of government did the founding fathers really envision? Was it the oligarcic plutochracy of todays government? One with gigantic Jingoistic tendecies. I think not. The advent of the corporation had not been drempt of in those days. Had it been, I'm sure they (The founding fathers) would have built in some protection against them for the populace. They had little Idea that rich capitalists would one day control the government, stealing everything they could from the people. Not only did they not see this coming, when successive government leaders noticed this phenomenom, it was already too late as they had been bought and paid for, therefore they had to cover it up as much as possible as they would have been held culpable. Now we are left with the most corrupt government on the face of the planet. One whos entire reason to exist is to protect the corporations from the people. They even go so far as to use the children of poverty as gunfodder in their wars of aggression to protect the interest of corporations accross the globe. I'm pretty sure the founding fathers did not have this in mind. I believe they had more of a socialistic republic in mind. one governed for the people, of the people, by the people.
