One of the most hotly contested political debates of modern day goes like this: What would Founding Fathers do if they were alive today?

The problem is most Americans aren’t taught truthful history about founders any more. So the divides on the topic grow wider.

And the divisions in America — about court decisions, about proper legislation and proper executive leadership, about the role of the government in general — grow wider, as well.

Democrats and Republicans have completely different views on how Founding Fathers would apply the Constitution to today’s matters. And there seems little chance to find common ground.

Michael Barone, longtime political analyst and pundit, has a new book that might help clarify how framers actually thought. It’s called “Mental Maps of the Founders: How Geographic Imagination Guided America’s Revolutionary Leaders.”
