They also overlooked that a virtual traitor could/would be elected President.. making possible the corruption of the entire executive branch of government.. Not just for his administration but flowing into the next administrations.. with career malefactors..
And if the executive branch was corrupted so also the Supreme Court by his selections there.. thus setting up the federal government for machine politics..
When certain amendments(and the case law proscibed by them) and following legislation stand the constitution on its head.. The constitution then gets watered down and eventually becomes irrelevant..
They didn't think of these things because they never believed the voters would become such cowards and corrupt themselves.. Electing a government that would/could do these things.. The truth is America has NOW a government that represents "the people".. Few would admit it tho..
My friend I think you have accurately and neatly placed this in a nutshell!
