I'm not sure if one man should have the power to rebuild our government though. It took a lot of smart men a long time to get us to this point. I'm not anti-trump, but I am anti-autocracy.

Same here, but this is just my hypothesis as to why so much effort was put into the last election.

One bit of good news, is that peter thiel funded the top 3 republican candidates in the primaries. I suspect he is playing a part in all of this, and that would explain why they know all the dirty secrets.

When a system is as corrupt as this, one autocratic man has a better chance of changing it.

Placing 100 people "in charge" will always fail because the majority will get corrupted and subvert the rest. Placing them one by one will, eventually, result in a candidate who'll flip the table - if he can survive the deep state.

Are you an American? This is the exact opposite ideology that America was founded on. As I've said before, you may like this president, but who's to say you'll like the next one. Perhaps Chelsea Clinton will take office some day. Will you still feel that one autocratic leader is what you want?

Too many people here are short-sighted and have shirked their duty to fight corruption because they think voting one man in office has exempt them from all responsibility. Don't be ignorant.

I agree that one person shouldn't hold that much power, but it's incumbent on everyone in a country to make sure that this doesn't happen. We've been shirking our duty on that front.

Why? Do you believe that a multitude of people is better suited to leadership? If so, why? You wouldn't want a committee piloting your plane, or commanding the crew on a ship, or commanding troops on the battlefield. All of the greatest leaders throughout history were autocrats, or as close to it as possible.

The strongest and the best should lead, not the most popular. And above all, they should all follow a hierarchical structure of command.

It sounds like you might be in the wrong country. America was founded on democracy for a reason. While you might like this leader, there's no guarantee you'll like the next one. It's not about a romanticized heroic leader. It's more about corruption and rampant abuse of centralized power.
