On the flip side, the Founders knew this. They knew that revolutions destabilize, and they created a system of checks and balances and a bill of rights to allow for cultural evolution. That America’s brilliant legacy to the world. No, our Union was not perfect at its inception, but it was designed to have the fluidity to become “more perfect” through slow change from the ground up. There is not more proof of the success of this Great Experiment than the electing of a black man and a women to govern the society — both of whom are members of demographics that were not even democratic citizens until centuries after our countries founding. Bernie’s “revolution” isn’t “American.” Hillary’s rise to power IS.
