Joe, more more time, maybe you missed my question? Some Founding Fathers (example: Alexander Hamilton) made the argument that Civil Rule under an elected autocrat for life would create an economy that was extremely stable. Obviously without having to deal with a Senate seeking re-election time and time again, such a system WOULD allow from must more control over the economy and be much more 'Stable' when compared to the Democratic Republic we currently live with. If 'Stability' is so important to you, then Autocratic Rule must be very compelling to you as well? So, my question is: If an unelected autocrat was as good or better than an elected autocrat, and given the prime important you place on economic stability, over civil liberty, wouldn't you therefor be in favor of autocracy?
