Our political culture has degraded to the point where it encourages the worst presidential temptations—and we’ve made waging war nearly as easy as firing off a tweet.
If you’re teaching your kids that the president reliably tells the truth and does the right thing, then the future citizens you’re raising may turn out gullible and easily led.
Early American political culture held that anyone who seemed to relish the idea of wielding power couldn’t be trusted with it. No longer.
Nearly every other GOP candidate has expressed views more imperial than Donald Trump’s—but is that a good thing?
President Obama goes around making war without so much as a nod to Congress, and GOP leaders respond by complaining his wars aren’t extensive enough.
We should recall James Madison’s warning that ‘No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.’
