The Founding Fathers knew that sooner or later we would end up with scoundrels running the government. That’s why they set up a separation of powers, to make it more difficult to implement tyranny. Needless to say the anti-American statist authoritarians who run the “mainstream” media don’t think much of the system. Listen to the odious Fareed Zakaria bleat about the alleged superiority of crumbling Europe’s parliaments:
Given the sickening caliber of our leadership in Washington, this may seem to be an odd time to take pride in the American system. But it allowed us to survive Woodrow Wilson and FDR, both of whom would have been full-fledged socialist dictators in Europe. It may even allow us to survive Barack Hussein Obama.
