Summary
Americans seem to have resigned ourselves to the exact form of government that the framers and ratifiers of our Constitution feared most: the tyranny of an elected monarch. The executive branch of the United States federal government has grown so far beyond the bounds set for it in our Constitution that Americans can no longer claim to govern ourselves. We only get the chance to pick the man who will spend four years legislating unilaterally with his pen, waging undeclared wars, and usurping still more powers that the people and the states never delegated to the federal government in the first place. But how did we get here? Step by unconstitutional step, as historian Brion McClanahan reveals, ranking presidents on the only true standard: whether they kept their oath of office to 'preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.'
