It is funny that the writers of the constituion distrusted the government, which was in large part made up of themselves. There just has to be a little irony in there somewhere. In any case, I still haven't the slightest idea how anyone here would do things any differently. Some even wanted to make Washington a king. Were we the first country to have a president? Do you suppose the government would be any more trustworthy were the members of this forum, myself naturally excluded (because I am not your friend), a part of the government, aside from those who already are?
