The American founders’ philosophy

First Thoughts - Debating Deneen by Gabrielle Speach (Check out the links on this post.)
How should we understand the American founders’ philosophy? Did they choose principles that could only lead to America’s demise? Or, have those principles today morphed into new ones that they would find objectionable? Or, did they successfully unite the best parts of the Western philosophical tradition, and so create a political philosophy that could withstand its own worst tendencies?
