Listen To The Voice of Reason

A pathetic ignorant crook in the White House

Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay were right. They wrote in Article 75 of the Federalist Papers the following:
…….might sometimes be under temptations to sacrifice his duty to his interest, which it would require superlative virtue to withstand. An avaricious man might be tempted to betray the interests of the state to the acquisition of wealth. An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents. The history of human conduct does not warrant that exalted opinion of human virtue which would make it wise in a nation to commit interests of so delicate and momentous a kind, as those which concern its intercourse with the rest of the world, to the sole disposal of a magistrate created and circumstanced as would be a President of the United States.
The Federalist Papers warned us about putting people of Trump’s character in the office of President of the United States of America. What is so significant about the writings? Thinkers (Political Scientists) of this era, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay Penned the Federalist Papers in 1787. They made it perfectly clear that the character of the individual entrusted with the power of President is of utmost importance. Current allegations facing President Trump is exactly about what they wrote. They write about the possibility of treason. Arron Hill opined about treason: ” The man who pauses on the path of treason, halts on quicksand, the first step engulfs him.”
There is a Latin Proverb. Nosicuter Ex Sociis, English Translation “ He is known by his companions.” Pay attention to the people surrounding Trump. Look at Trump cronies dating back well before he ran for the office of President of the United States. He has been running with people of questionable character for decades.
Another Latin proverb says “ Qualis Vir,talis Oratio. English translation” As the man, so his speech.” It is hard to imagine how a person with such poor command of the English language and serious character flaws could be elected President of the United States. Many people voting for Trump admitted that his behavior was less than expected of the President of the United States. Most people voting for him, felt given time, his behavior would change for the better,. They forgot one thing according to De La Bruyere “ In a wicked man, there is not wherewithal to make a good man.”

    Current Lawmakers, especially those of the Republican persuasion should take a minute and visit the Federalist Papers. Article 75 spells out in detail their concerns about electing an individual with Donald characteristics to the office of President of The United States. What Jay, Hamilton, and Madison surmised, is exactly the behavior Donald Trump displays. It is as if Article 75 of the Federalist Papers was written with him in mind. Factor in his apparent subscribing and adherence to the philosophy of the leader of Germany in the Thirties and Forties and you will get a clearer picture of how this man think and what are the root causes of his behavior. His behavior has all of the markings of an unhinged and irrational individual, incapable of making rational, well-thought out comments and decisions. It is time for US Lawmakers to do their elected duties and remove Trump from the office of President of these United States. Many Lawmakers, especially Republicans see him as a deranged and unstable individual, yet are afraid to let their true feeling be known to their constituents. it is time to let him know that he is not above the law and he works for the people, not the reverse.
