The USA are on the way to a Quasi-monarchy

illusions about the human nature were the US founding fathers. "He who founds a state, and the necessary laws for a government, must assume that all people are inherently bad", believed to be about John Adams, the second President. Therefore, it was considered in the deliberations of the US Constitution in Philadelphia, to create a System of mutual controls, the so-called "Checks and Balances".

A separation of powers, as the French state had supported theorist and educator Montesquieu, seemed to be the in Philadelphia, the tried-and-tested recipe Gathered. "It reflects the human nature, that such devices are necessary to control abuse of power," said James Madison, one of the driving forces behind the Constitution, and later also President.

Evil idea of the founding fathers With the presidency, Donald trump confirmed the prophecies of the founding fathers. Not that Trump would be the first President to attempt the separation of powers and, therefore, the duty of supervision and responsibility of the Congress. The increasing power of the Executive at the expense of the Congress has been a constant theme of the past few decades. If unexplained wars, or the questionable Surveillance of citizens by US worthy of intelligence services: The Congress is increasingly become the extras, its in the first article of the Constitution guaranteed the equivalence of the Executive are in danger.

Now, Donald Trump's direction creates precedents, he denied the duty of supervision of the democratic majority in the house of representatives in a systematic way. The subpoenas for current and former employees of the President not to honour the White house, the issuance of documents, including the tax returns of the President, is denied.

"We fight against all of the subpoenas, because they are not impartial people," reasoned the President for his refusal. The claims of the Congress through negotiations, as previous presidents have done, rejects Trump. He's stonewalling and illustrated the impotence of the legislature.

Parliament you could issues pre-loaded, and not released employees Trumps because of disregard of the legal consequences, such as fines, however, would be low. And no Americans since the 19th century. Century for contempt of Congress in prison have been thrown. The Parliament of the teeth are missing, and Trump knows that. Its walls aims to neutralize the democratic investigations through a game on time: Up to the courts on claims of the Congress, Democrats have decided, could years pass.

Also, in the case of a Amsenthebungsverfahrens against him, the President wants to complain. The Supreme court will want to hardly deal, Trumps concrete tactics could force the congressional Democrats to initiate an impeachment procedure against him. "If Trump is allowed to ignore Congress, then we have no representative system of government, we would be a monarchy similar to" respond to the democratic members Ted Lieu.

On the way to a Quasi-monarchy, but the United States for some time. Too much Power has been left to the President to come, the role of Congress in the Background. "What will it be, doctor Franklin, a monarchy or a Republic?", a certain Mrs. Powell asked the famous founding father, as he left the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. "A Republic, if you can keep because," was Franklin's reply. (Editorial Tamedia)
