A quick overview of what I plan to write then I will rewrite it below.
Elsewhere in the world the king was first the strongest, later the strongest leader and by conquering neighbors made themselves wealthy.
Later the king was the wealthiest and largest landowner.
With the advent of parliment commoners could potentially challenge the wealthy by rising to be Prime Minister.
In America the President, Congress and Govornors of the nation were the weathiest and largest landowners. The system being perpetuated by the capitalist mentality.
The President (or King) was either of the Military, intellectual or Merchent classes.
