This week is the 230th anniversary of the US Constitution. Caleb takes this time to review the inner libertarianism of the Founding Fathers and how much of a libertarian document the Constitution is. While the right tends to deify the constitution and the founders, and the left dehumanizes them, the truth is somewhere in between. While neither are perfect, it is their imperfection that showcases how incredible they are.
Caleb goes over the libertarian elements in the Constitution, some more libertarian Founders, and some who are less than libertarian. Caleb closes with the lessons we could all learn from the constitution this year as we move forward.
