My first impression to the letter, "The real intentions" was are you kidding but thought about it and found I could agree but not the way the writer intended.
I disagree with the writer's view of the intent of the Founding Fathers. Great steps in progress has been made in this country since it's founding and to try and to keep government to an agrarian, thirteen states, 18th century societal style is unrealistic.
Maybe the writer should tell his fellow anti-government patriots who write about the vacations the President takes is making government part-time as the Founders envision. Look how wonderfully the current Congress is doing in being part-timers. Long breaks and vacations leaving the business of the people hanging. Let us not forget the government shutdown. Talk about part-time. Can't get any better than that. But gridlock is good. It keeps the conservatives and the Tea Party from making and passing their hateful damaging bills. Like the ones that have been passed in Republican held states. So I agree the gridlock is good when it keeps conservative intentions at bay.
