    Our country is like an aircraft carrier and not a jet ski. It takes us a long time to make a turn but we eventually do.

    So we will eventually get rid of these crooks and men with no honor. It just takes a while.

    Hopefully it will take one day next November, then another day in 2022 and they we'll have the Presidency, the House and the Senate

    Re: The Constitution Relies Too Much On Men Of Honor

    Good question and the answer is not an easy one. First, the founders did envision a nation ruled by honorable men, men like themselves for instance. But they also saw that honorable men can abuse power so they put in checks and balances and the impeachment clause. They also feared factionalism which is another way of saying political parties. Why? Because they believed that if we split into camps, the truth and the law and morality will be sacrificed to the tribe sooner or later. But yet they themselves formed tribes almost immediately proving their point about honorable men turning into something else fairly quickly. So the answer is yes, with a big "but". In essence, this question is at the heart of the Trump impeachment.

    I agree with you under one slight change; women of honor is far more likely to happen.

    How many men of honor are in the government? Not very many. The men of honor are run out after one term.
