In quoting a tweet from Laurence Tribe about recent SCOTUS appointments, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell tried to spell out where the Founding Fathers got it wrong:
Founders’ design flaws in democracy—electoral college & 2 senators per state no matter the size of population—have created the current Supreme Court. https://t.co/EVvzOnKH4P

Who wants to tell himi?
The Founders expressly did not want a democracy, for good reasons. Try reading Madison. https://t.co/py15ZJENYa

Without these "design flaws" the United States of America never exists. https://t.co/RgUw1Yn3Lm

Perhaps a civics lesson is needed, Senate meant to represent states and insulate from the mob rule you and your progressive ilk crave. https://t.co/mo0HChCEDO

The real “flaw” for lefties like O’Donnell is that things aren’t turning out the way Dems want, so the Founders get the blame.
Not only are these not 'design flaws,' they are literally what perfected the system (prior to the passage of the abhorrent 17th Amendment), and without which our country would never have come into existence. This is so, so, perversely backwards. https://t.co/PjSdyZEiQN

Leftists long for a nice dictator to get rid of this representative republic thingy. https://t.co/px3v41pDBm

It's a feature, not a flaw. It was designed to make democracy hard, so that things required coming to a consensus to pass. So that a majority could not slam their agenda through. Dismantling the safeguards the Founders placed into the constitution will be America's undoing. https://t.co/l0jE6zACDc

This flaw was unknown until Trump became President. What are the chances?

The hammering apparently hasn’t stopped, and might even be getting louder by the hour.
