Abolish the Presidency!
The office has devolved and degraded along with this Nation. As the men of leadership produced by this country have become squalid and corrupt, the office's powers have become more and more autocratic. It is a matter of great shame that we have let this situation arise.

No one person should ever be given the amount of power that the President has. Humanity's greatest mistake is that it continuously allows systems where one and only one person has the real power. The President can do anything with Executive Orders now, thanks to Bush, and supplemented greatly by Obama. The President can start undeclared wars without a peep from Congress. And lets not forget, the President can start WWIII if they really want to (and they have had that power for 60 years).

Why should any one person ever be allowed the final say on matters of such great importance? I find it foolish and the cause of our National ruination. Generally, only the most corrupt or controllable or insane people get elevated to even the possibility of nomination, let alone the Office. If you can blackmail the President, you can do anything. Concentrating that much power in one person is a recipe for disaster.

So I say, let us correct the second biggest error the Framers made, the only sensible solution going forward is to abolish, by Amendment, the Office of the President of the United States. No single human being should be given all the powers of that office, it is completely impossible for any single person to responsibly use them. There must be a better way, and I think it's time to find it.

ABOLISH THE PRESIDENCY!

But seriously, some sort of group with rotating or randomly chosen leadership.

The best leadership IMHO is Retired Generals.

A Council of Retired Generals.

That's not a terrible idea! I don't know about outside military affairs though.

Re: Abolish the Presidency!
Obama is the most "Common" man leader in a LONG time.

So enjoy what he is trying to do for you.

And notice how much of his vision he is able to accomplish (or not accomplish)
 Quoting: Open Your Eyes


Obama is no common man, he ran on the common man meme, but he is no commoner. No commoner has a heraldic symbol.

There is no replacement. There was never supposed to be a president in the first place. When your founding fathers set out to create your constitution, in total secrecy, they were not even supposed to be doing that. They were given the job of proposing amendments to the Articles Of Confederation in order to improve it; not cook up some fucking federal constitution, in total secrecy, behind everybody's back.

You need to scrap that piece of shit and go back to the Articles. No fucking president, no fucking federal government. Just a loose collection of independent states bound by what was essentially a free trade agreement and a mutual defense compact.
