"There's little that's intelligent or informed about Time magazine editor Richard Stengel's article 'One Document, Under Siege' (June 23, 2011). It contains many grossly ignorant statements about our Constitution. If I believed in conspiracies, I'd say Stengel's article is part of a leftist agenda to undermine respect for the founding values of our nation. ... The framers held democracy and majority rule in deep contempt. As a matter of fact, the term democracy appears in none of our founding documents." (07/07/11)
