If we're going to have a monarch or a dictator, do we even need a Congress?

After all, he will tell them when he wants the kids to go back to school.

He will tell them how much he wants to spend on defense and how much he wants to transfer to his wall.

He will tell them what he wants with the people's healthcare,

He will tell them what countries we should have relations with and which ones should be castigated and ignored.

He will tell them how much money he wants in a special fund without any oversight, to spend however he wishes.

He will tell them to keep their nose out of his business when he is giving intelligence information to our enemies.

He will tell them there are no limits to his powers, per the 2nd Article of the Constitution.

He will call the free press the "enemy of the people".

He will do whatever the hell he wants and nobody will do anything about it.

So why do we even need a Congress? Aren't they just a waste of money?

2. You need a congress to rubber stamp Dear Leader's edicts...

lends a little gravitas and respectability.

3. Same for the Supreme Court

If they're just going to make judgments that favor the dictator, what purpose would they serve?

While we're at it, get rid of all the States' governments. They're a waste of money and space and the dictator can run things better from a central location.

In all seriousness, too many members of Congress are a waste of money.

4. Hopefully, the next dictator will not be as malevolent as this one.

Or a sick f*ck.

8. The system we have is not designed for somebody like Trump and McConnell

We need to make several corrections.
