Good points made on the perversion of the Presidency itself.
If you’re worried because a madman may wield the power of the President’s position, perhaps you should think about reshaping the position itself more than being worried what sort of madman you put in the position. If it’s not Trump, then it’s going to be some other madman.
There are some powers in the Presidency that NO ONE PERSON should have. Don’t hate the player. Hate the game. And if you go back far enough, it started with Presidents like Abraham Lincoln who crushed State’s Rights.
Unfortunately, the important questions are being sidelined by the “word police” and virtue signalers making nonsensical arguments based primarily on emotion. Okay. I get it. You don’t like the guy.
Can we focus on the bigger questions? Like why does the Presidency have so much power that letting in one madman like Trump or Hillary could possibly destroy the world?
It’s like Black Lives Matter and Social Justice Warriors getting pissed off at White people, business owners, police, and perceived Racism. To be most effective for change they should be focusing on tearing down the drug laws which are probably the single most contributing factor toward single-family black families, poverty, incarcerations, crime, and community destruction.
A crucial step in preventing a Trump (“literally Hitler”) Tyranny, is to decentralize power from the Federal Government back to the States. Education, Abortion, Marriage, Gun Control, Minimum Wage, etc. If you’re so concerned about Trump starting WWIII, then why are we allowing the Federal Government to have a standing military? Perhaps State militias which can be called upon to cooperate in times of joint national defense is more appropriate.
The Founding Fathers were correct in placing the enumerated powers via the Tenth Amendment. Unfortunately, the Progressives and Warmongers dismantled the controls for their causes of “social justice.”
Well, guess what happens when you create the monster that is the Federal Government? Guess what happens when you diminish State’s Rights? You eventually get an absolute madman in a place of unprecedented power.
The answer is not to replace the madman with a madman you prefer. The better answer is to slay the beast and prevent these madmen from having any power to do any meaningful damage.
Take the power back away from the Federal Government and give it back to the States.
