What is wrong with a dictatorship if it brings stability and consistency?

WHEN DICTATORS TURN BAD IT IS HARD TO GET RID OF THEM

Dictators take away our choice for freedom of speech. With a Dictator in power, you have to do what they say or violent thugs turn up, round you or your family up and send you either to concentration camps, Prisons or death by murdering squads.
We in the West have fought and chosen to live in a Democracy, with legally elected political leaders. We don't agree with dictators and will never accept any such political leader. If Trump continues to ignore the rioting and civil unrest in parts of America, he's likely to lose the elections, to a Party that cares about all of it's citizens, regardless of skin colour, political beliefs or how much they earn!

Your an idiot just go to fricken China you moron. Millions have died for freedom and there are millions that cherish that and them. Your question I understand is just a question but this is the reason this country is in crisis. WE WERE FOUNDED ON FREEDOM. And before you pull the slaves on me their free now too. This country is a republic and if it disappears the light in the world dissapears. There will be no one thats accountable .So like that man who stood in front of a tank in China he would tell you freedom is worth it. And a dictatorship is crap.

Well, first of all, you'd have to start with a president who's stable and consistent - which this one is not, no matter how much he claims to be. Person-woman-man-camera-tv.
All kidding aside, America was specifically designed to not let a dictator declare himself.
Citizens under the American Constitution are entering a social contract of trust with their government. You do certain things, I do certain things. We trust each other.
Here comes Trump. He doesn't trust anybody. And people who have trusted him in the past have ALWAYS gotten burned. But he has a superpower: He has no shame.
He's never had an actual job before, but he's been a hell of an armchair quarterback, and they wouldn't let him buy an NFL team, even with Deutsche Bank's help. He tried starting his own league and that didn't work either.
Then this guy Trump gets a wild hair to finish off his "career" by playing a political game, because he kinda likes armchair quarterbacking the political game too.
He's always thought that anybody who plays by society's rules is a sucker - and he has an instinct for suckers who are just dying to break the rules. He garnered support among an assortment of especially resentful, anti-social, anti-politically-correct people who are not receptive to a changing world, and he rubs salt in their wounds.
TRUMP SUPPORTERS LOVE THE PAIN. (I guess that's the only way they know they're alive.)
I know he didn't read the books, but he lives by the quote from Ayn Rand, "The question isn't who's going to LET me. The question is who's going to STOP me?"
He has searched his whole life for someone who could stop him.

If a man were called to fix the period in the history of the world, during which the condition of the human race was most happy and prosperous, he would, without hesitation, name that which elapsed from the death of Domitian to the accession of Commodus. The vast extent of the Roman empire was governed by absolute power, under the guidance of virtue and wisdom. The armies were restrained by the firm but gentle hand of four successive emperors, whose characters and authority commanded involuntary respect. The forms of the civil administration were carefully preserved by Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, and the Antonines, who delighted in the image of liberty, and were pleased with considering themselves as the accountable ministers of the laws. Such princes deserved the honour of restoring the republic, had the Romans of their days been capable of enjoying a rational freedom.
The labours of these monarchs were overpaid by the immense reward that inseparably waited on their success ; by the honest pride of virtue, and by the exquisite delight of beholding the general happiness of which they were the authors.
A just but melancholy reflection imbittered, however, the noblest of human enjoyments. They must often have recollected the instability of a happiness which depended on the character of a single man. The fatal moment was perhaps approaching, when some licentious youth, or some jealous tyrant, would abuse, to the destruction, that absolute power which they had exerted for the benefit of their people. The ideal restraints of the senate and the laws might serve to display the virtues, but could never correct the vices of the emperor.Source(s): Gibbon, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

Dictatorial governments stifle free thought and therefore decrease things like innovation.

No single person anywhere should have full control. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
