According to Madison's notes, Hamilton said in regards to the executive, "The English model was the only good one on this subject. The hereditary interest of the king was so interwoven with that of the nation, and his personal emoluments so great, that he was placed above the danger of being corrupted from abroad... Let one executive be appointed for life who dares execute his powers."

I guess Hamilton would have been in favor of KING TRUMP
My point is laws never totally eliminate behavior, but we still believe they are necessary.

Whats yours?

Trumpism is a test of character. It has revealed, to the surprise of some on the left, people on the right who meant what they said and stood by their values. I wont forget them.

It has also exposed those who were willing to betray any principle for money, power, animus, or tribalism.
