The Constitution is not just a document, it IS the country. It is the skeletal structure of this living, breathing creation we call the United States of America. I’m sure you’ve seen this article from April, but I want to call attention to Trump’s use of the word “archaic”. Like all things not inert, our country, and laws, evolve as needed for the times. But, the basic structure remains virtually unchanged. When someone takes the oath of office, for any office, they are swearing to abide by those rules, and work within them. They are NOT given free reign to change the structure to fit their own whims.
Read this definition of tyranny from Britannica: in the Greco-Roman world, an autocratic form of rule in which one individual exercised power without any legal restraint.
This is the essence of what Donald Trump aspires to. He wants to change the fundamental design of our nation to fit his wishes, desires, and personal ‘needs.’ In addition, the Republican-led House and Senate do not challenge him, even when his demands go against the common good, and established law. This makes him a tyrant in the classical sense. Read up on Tiberius, Caligula, Nero, Domitian, Commodus, and Marcus Aurelius Antoninus I and II. Pay close attention. Their reigns didn’t normally end well.
