Both Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt did some extraordinary things in wartime. But these men knew limits. Would Mr Trump also know limits? Hamilton’s “energetic” executive is dangerous.

    The US Republic won't end even in the unlikely event Trump gets elected President. He probably won't be as aggressive overseas as Clinton and/or Rubio would be and I doubt he'll meekly follow along with whatever crazy policies the GOP wants to implement (he'll owe them nothing). It'll be embarrassing (he is a crude, loudmouthed narcissist) but we'll eventually get over it.

    I am more pessimistic than that. I hope this is an exercise in counterfactual history come the election. What the world would be like after a Trump presidency.

    Many anti-Nazi Germans hoped that Hitler and the NSDAP would become completely
    discredited after Hitler showed his ineptitude (they hoped) in governing Germany.

    Germany's much more generous than the USA in admitting refugees from the Middle East.

    Not an American. A cultural difference would be, for instance, that people will shake hands when greeting in Finland but kiss on the cheek in France. A different historical background might help explain certain differences in culture, but is not, in and of itself, a cultural difference.
