The United States functions absent a ruling King or Queen, yet aristocratic analogs are running the House and Senate.

Oligarchs around the world are seizing power by removing term limits, poisoning adversaries, and contesting established geographical borders.  The United States of America and its officials must maintain the moral authority won through the great sacrifice and expense of previous generations.  American leaders must set the example by resisting the temptations that promote the interest of

 oligarchies.  Autocratic attempts are causing both local and global conflicts through perverse nationalism and declaration of right to lifetime appointment.  Limiting the time an elected official holds office is key to maintaining a healthy democracy.
