“Gridlock… isn’t a bug in our system of government. It’s a feature. It’s built into the Constitution, and for good reason… The generation that wrote and ratified our basic law had just fought a long war to overthrow an oppressive government. They weren’t about to saddle themselves with one of their own making.” — Roger Pilon, inFOCUS 2020

Kenneth Simon Chair in Constitutional Studies, discuss the causes of the American disconnect and, perhaps, a path back to our roots through our Founding Fathers and their founding documents.
