One way to assure that Trump can’t be replicated – from either the extreme political right or left – would be to curb the very presidential powers he exploited. The Pledge to Safeguard the Constitution [] is a petitions which demands that Congress enact legislation to restrict presidential power in the most specific, critical areas which pose a threat to our democratic institutions so that even if there is a return of somebody like Donald Trump, he or she will not have access to the kinds of powers Trump used to threaten our democratic institutions. The Pledge won’t solve the social factors which loom before us as a nation, but it would greatly restrict any future president’s ability to exploit them. Check it out, and if you think the ideas behind The Pledge are good ones, get behind it. We “have some time to prepare” – but time goes by fast, let’s not wait until it’s too late.
