    The right has the military, "defense" spending (on a whole range of things that aren't necessary for defense), and nation building inside a large range of countries that aren't currently a threat and that were taken over by questionable means.

    The left has its social programs for everything under sun they could get passed.

    When it comes time to talk about cutting spending both sides harp on the others wasteful programs and allotments of money in the previously mentioned areas, and neither will compromise. This one of the main reasons the government is as big as it is and has so much power over the people and means the budget just gets bigger and bigger every year.

    with that said... Which side would the founding fathers take, if any? Personally I think they would be distraught at both parties over the last ~70 years and attempt a brand new revolution.

    Neither.

    The demopublicraticans have become the monsters that the framers broke away from.

    I'll play. I suppose if they were absolutely forced to choose between the lesser of two evils, they would go with the one that least infringes on our being independent as individuals. The more people become dependent on government, the more they relinquish their personal freedom and liberties.

    The right tries to lift 3rd world countries through nation building, while the left seeks equality among nations by reducing America to a third world country.

    both bankrupt the country, and the nation building hurts our national security as the people in the country know who is behind their puppet government

    Washington, Adams, Hamilton, Pickney, etc. if alive today would agree with the Democratic programs. Let's move on.
