I think it’s time, if we should get another crack at self-government, to stop electing and start hiring and firing government representatives. Who needs a dictator, or even a potential dictator!

It has been said over and over, that the people (but WHAT? people …the “we the people” who signed the preamble to the constitution? Certainly not “wee the sheeple” of today!, …anyway, these “people, ” many claim, wanted Washington (George) to be their king, but he declined, they say.

But I notice that he did his damdest to see that the Constitution provided him veto power over the states–but in that  he failed!  In fact, it ended up that a Bill of Rghts had to be added to the Constitution in order to get it ratified.

But, apparently, some people never got over their craving for a king, sugar daddy, call it what you will.

Washington was also the first CINC to personally lead a military (militia) in the field against “the folks”–to collect a whiskey tax (to pay off gubmint debt from the war; some things never change. Again, the folks didn’t much go along with that idea.

Congressman David Crockett, some think, said that all politicians are scum, or…words to that effect.

Anyway, here’s a fine article that just happens to delve into this very topic….

The modern institution of the presidency is the primary political evil Americans face, and the cause of nearly all our woes. It squanders the national wealth and starts unjust wars against foreign peoples that have never done us any harm.

It wrecks our families, tramples on our rights, invades our communities, and spies on our bank accounts. It skews the culture toward decadence and trash. It tells lie after lie. Teachers used to tell school kids that anyone can be president. This is like saying anyone can go to Hell. It’s not an inspiration; it’s a threat.

The presidency – by which I mean the executive State – is the sum total of American tyranny. The other branches of government, including the presidentially appointed Supreme Court, are mere adjuncts.

The presidency insists on complete devotion and humble submission to its dictates, even while it steals the products of our labor and drives us into economic ruin.

It centralizes all power unto itself, and crowds out all competing centers of power in society, including the church, the family, business, charity, and the community.

I’ll go further. The US presidency is the world’s leading evil. It is the chief mischief-maker in every part of the globe, the leading wrecker of nations, the usurer behind Third-World debt, the bailer-out of corrupt governments, the hand in many dictatorial gloves, the sponsor and sustainer of the New World Order, of wars, interstate and civil, of famine and disease.

To see the evils caused by the presidency, look no further than Iraq or Serbia, where the lives of innocents were snuffed out in pointless wars, where bombing was designed to destroy civilian infrastructure and cause disease, and where women, children, and the aged have been denied essential food and medicine because of a cruel embargo. Look at the human toll taken by the presidency, from Dresden and Hiroshima to Waco and Ruby Ridge, and you see a prime practitioner of murder by government.

Today, the president is called the leader of the world’s only superpower, the “world’s indispensable nation,” which is reason enough to have him deposed. A world with any superpower at all is a world where no freedoms…………….

    “Congress has given in on point after point, eventually even granting the presidency most of what it demanded in health-care reform, including mandated equal coverage of the mentally ill. Chalk it up to long-term planning. They came into office pledging to curb government, but are as infatuated with the presidency as Clinton himself. After all, they hope their party will regain the office.

    Then the Republicans had the audacity to ask in bewilderment: why did the president beat Dole? What did we do wrong? The real question is what have they done right? James Burnham said that the legislature is useless unless it is curbing the presidency. By that measure, this Congress has been worthless. It deserves to lose its majority. And its party deserves to lose the presidency, whose powers they are so anxious to grab for themselves.

    The best moments in the 104th Congress were when a few freshmen talked quietly of impeachment. Indeed it is their responsibility to talk loudly, openly, and constantly of impeachment. Today’s presidency is by definition in violation of the Constitution. Talk of impeachment ought to become routine. So should ridicule and humiliation. For if we care about liberty, the plebiscitary dictatorship must be reined in or tossed out.

    John Randolph had only been a Senator for a few days when he gave an extraordinary speech denouncing John Quincy Adams. “It is my duty,” said Randolph, “to leave nothing undone that I may lawfully do, to pull down this administration. . . . They who, from indifference, or with their eyes open, persist in hugging the traitor to their bosom, deserve to be insulted . . . deserve to be slaves, with no other music to soothe them but the clank of the chains which they have put on themselves and given to their offspring.” John Randolph said this in 1826. This was a time, writes de Tocqueville, when the presidency was almost invisible. If we cannot say this and more today, when the presidency is dictator to the world, we are not authentic conservatives and libertarians. Indeed, we are not free men.”
