While I agree with much said here about the Founders, it is worth noting that the United States evolved out of a Constitutional Monarchy formed over centuries. The Founders then incorporated large chunks of the British Constitution into our own. We did not overthrow a dictatorship.

At no point were the colonies in America, whether deemed British or American, not Constitutional. Taxation without representation is a Constitutional complaint.

Even with thoroughly ingrained Constitutional institutions, formed over centuries, the Founders moved from a system of separation of power between the parliament and an unelected ruler to a situation involving national elections of a President with great caution and trepidation.

Wilsonian democracy promoters would do well to remember that.
