They pretty much were on a war path to destroy native nations. Just look at Andrew Jackson.

And as far as a Republic? Peeshaw that worked very well for Rome with Caligula, Nero etc...
A little too much time in Public schools? Or just too much MSM?

My question to you is why don't you care about the Founders and the covenant they created? It has allowed a civilization that was as you described, and through a promise of freedom, allowed our people to become what we are today.

Were it not for the ideas and principles of the Founders, slavery may well still exist. That you are unaware of this is YOUR problem.

If you are unhappy here in the USA, I have a recommendation. But don't assume you can change what we are as many, many, many, of us are quite happy with what we are.

Yes. Partisanship supersedes integrity and supplants rule of law.

Precisely. As long as 'our side' increases its power and prestige, damn that pesky constitution.
