The key period is the weeks after Gore conceded the 2000 election and before the inauguration, when the Clintons knew they would be preparing for a Bush presidency. The abuses in that brief period are well-known now: from numerous pardons, including some to campaign donors; to the Clintons' claiming some White House furniture as personal rather than state-owned. Several of the "abuses" claimed by Olson went beyond politics and into policy: from a last-minute change in the EPA definition of allowed arsenic levels; to making the United State a signatory to the International Criminal Court.

It seems as if the president gets more and more powerful as the years go by and if unchecked the president could maybe become so powerful that he would be more of a tyrant then a democratic figure for the people. America would definitely crumble if this were to happen as histories have proven with let’s say someone like Hitler. Also with the president being the Commander and Chief of the United States Military being a positive aspect, it can as well be a negative. The president could use the military to take extraordinary actions on American soil that violate civil liberties of Americans.

Long voiced populist resentments that many depression-era Americans felt toward 'wealthy plutocrats' and 'bloated fortunes.' He promised, through his implausible Share-Our-Wealth Plan, a radical redistribution of wealth: confiscatory taxes would scale down large fortunes, and the revenue would be used to guarantee everyone a minimum annual income of twenty-five hundred dollars. By 1935, he had launched his own national political organization (the Share-Our-Wealth clubs) and was talking openly of running for president the next year against Roosevelt.
