Not sure where some notions about what the founding fathers believed in are coming from. I've been spending some time reading the original documents and correspondences among them and the idea they were for limited government isn't true.

A good starting place would be to review the The Articles of Confederation, then read the Constitution and pay attention to how the founders wanted more Federal power not less. They struck a balance with states rights, but the trend wasn't away from a strong central government but to one that had sufficient powers to unite a continent of diverse interests.

We don't have hatred toward the president...at least I don't. I do however, hate his principals and his view of America. He doesn't believe in the America that our forefathers wrote up in the constitution. He believes in govt can fix all the problems. He may say he does, his actions say different. He is not a democrat. Do you think JFK would believe in what this guy for
