Because ideology is nice but real world trumps it. He had to get rid of the French colonialists and we wouldn't help him because we were France's ally. Enemy of my enemy is my friend type of situation. We allied with Stalin in WW2 -- does that mean that we liked Stalin? No, he was just the enemy of the Nazis at the right time.
Did the US form a communist government?
Following the August Revolution (1945) organized by the Viet Minh, Ho became Chairman of the Provisional Government (Premier of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam) and issued a Proclamation of Independence of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. Although he convinced Emperor Bao Dai to abdicate, his government was not recognized by any country. He repeatedly petitioned American President Harry S. Truman for support for Vietnamese independence, citing the Atlantic Charter, but Truman never responded.
Well 3 branch's of government for starters, then there is that CONSTITUTION.
Things dictators don't like.
Then why did they create another one during 1913 ?
Can't pin the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 on the Founders.
How can women be property and own slaves?
Really? Cause those 3 branches sure have no problems passing patriot acts, NDAA, on and on.... things dictators love. It's just an oligarchy, which is really what most "dictatorships" are.
If you read the link you would have seen that it was a charter, it was voted to not be renewed after it expired decades later. A 2nd central bank charter was created later on, and then finally the federal reserve.
I never did. I pinned the FIRST central bank of the US on the founders, the one they created and signed into law. Stop deflecting.
Because women were above slaves on the social hierarchy... It would also depend on the women's marriage status and state she lived in. But this is off topic and I'm not going to give an essay on the history of women's rights in the US

Now Obama is highlighting the former dictator of Viet Nam in 'a good way ?' it seems
Read for yourselves, I will not comment other than Ho Chi Minh was a commie dictator.
Jesus Christ, doesn't Obama understand 'perception'
“...we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.”
-- President Obama talking to reporters alongside Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang.
It may come as some unwelcome news to the families of the nearly 60,000 Americans who died in the Vietnam War that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding.
That was the impression President Obama gave on Thursday when he spoke to the press after his meeting with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang. Sang brought Obama a copy of a letter sent to President Harry Truman from Ho Chi Minh in which the communist dictator spoke hopefully of cooperation with the United States.
Uh Ho: Obama Says Vietnamese Dictator Inspired by Founding Fathers
Is anybody else 'Proud' ?

And Have another communist state back him?
