It seems perfectly evident to

It seems perfectly evident to me that a system of "checks and balances" coupled with a monopoly use of force is an untenable situation. if the history of this country is any lesson, it's that the best intended constitution cannot be protected from the perpetual flow of quislings and fools seeking to erode it. "eternal vigilance" is simply not a viable option. there will always be 1,000,000 self-serving politicians for every statesman. it's a process you can slow down, but probably never stop.
