I think Richard Nixon and William Jefferson Clinton would disagree with that statement1

Well done!  I've always loved that format, and wish the US system would allow for it!  

Our founding fathers created a very unique form of government that was "supposed to be" self-correcting.   They did foresee that a dishonest pirate might grab the controls, but the built-in protections from "co-equal" branches of government (Congress and the Supreme Court) were supposed to act as checks upon what we are seeing now.  

However, with all branches of government seemingly beholden to foreign influences, the whole thing is going off the rails!!  There will be no salvation unless and until the opposition Democratic party can gain control of the House and Senate this fall.  

This is really good reading in case you wanted to know what the US founders were afraid of, and why Pres. Trump fits that bill:
