Thermidor is my political blog. My political views are unorthodox, verging on the illegal. I am an anti-imperialist, against almost all American wars, including the Revolution. I am a radical originalist skeptical of most Constitutional amendments and of all Constitutional interpretation since 1865. I am a Burkean, Jeffersonian liberal. I am a man of the 19th century: in favor of progress, private property and the rule of law.
