Just what Alexander Hamilton was afraid of. (but who was he? No royalty; just a bastard kid from the lesser Antilles.)
But the paradox: some Caesar taking over is just what Jefferson feared from Hamilton's Federalism.
How do we get rid of the bloke? Kill one Kaiser; Kaiser jr takes over. King and capable son vs. Babble and consensus - "you gotta wanta": you have to want to do democracy. Like Franklin said, Jefferson gave us a democracy, if we can keep it.
So, Trump jr isn't so capable; and the designated successor, Pence, is not independently minded. Paul Ryan, 2rd in line, at least can think, but he's retiring.
