Letter: Trump usurpation

Given recent political developments, this admonishment from Founding Father James Monroe seems quite relevant:

“It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising the sovereignty. Usurpation is then an easy attainment, and an usurper soon found. The people themselves become the willing instruments of their own debasement and ruin. Let us, then, look to the great cause, and endeavor to preserve it in full force. Let us by all wise and constitutional measures promote intelligence among the people as the best means of preserving our liberties.”

— First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1817

Beware of usurpers. And by all means, don’t enable them.

JM Jesse
