    They intended it to be a nation based on Western priorities and sentiments. How ever imperfectly the country got its start. That was the intention.

    No and I think you know that.

    They didn’t even consider the “white people only” concept, it didn’t exist. Whites were already in charge pretty much all over the world so it never even came to their minds that people of color would ever be considered equals.

    The Founders were excruciatingly clear about not having a state religion and rejecting the notion that religion should drive the Constitution or our laws. The First Amendment couldn’t be clearer about that. And personal documentation, plus formal documentation, also clarified that fact.

    No, the constitution clearly states all men are created equal with equal rights.   "men" has since been interpreted to mean all people, not just males BTW.

    When the founding fathers founded our nation, it was not decreed that the USA remain a Christian and White person only population. However, at that time, citizen's were all white and primarily Christian. I believe that the fathers did not have any idea of what the future would bring and assumed it would always stay that way. unfortunately, as we see here, one can't assume anything.

    They intended it to be a Republic 

    • And so it is.  You are correct but pretty much off topic and a distraction from the actual question.

    No the founding fathers intended that the United States of America be a nation under God that was a republic! that's why the pledge of allegiance says to the republic for which it stands one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all

    • The Pledge was written by a socialist. and God didn't get into it until the 1950's

    Heck, no.  It's democracy proof.  It's an oligarchy of wealth.

    actually, yes they did. not a christian democracy, though, but the founding fathers were indeed racist slave owners who were scumbags

    No, nothing in the Constitution says that.
