Iowa has some institutions that directly enable participation on the grass roots level.
Yep I mean this part of your answer.
Do the US states all get their own constitution?

Yes, which makes things interesting because Louisiana's legal code operates on a different set of assumptions than all the others. All the rest are based in English Common Law, but Louisiana was adapted from the Napoleonic Code. In researching my answers, I discovered that Nebraska has a unicameral legislature and is supposedly non-partisan.

Just a sad state of affairs. Going to get worse before it gets better.
I have to throw in a comment. That's just complete nonsense. Trump's brand has already made him a fortune, there was no need to improve it.

I don't remember the exact year but, during one of the
White House Correspondents' Association Dinners, where they all "roast" each other
, Obama really went after Trump, who was in attendance, and Trump was not happy about it. Trump decided that night to run for President...as much as anything to show them just how big of a bigshot he is. That's why Trump ran for President. And if you think he didn't run to win, you are mistaken.

He may not have much of a brand by the end of his term.
