How could the US turn into a dictatorship?

How could the US turn into a dictatorship?

Nikolas Campos, I look at wikipedia, and try to figure out the most likely scenario

Actually, the mathemetician Kurt Gödel, when studying to pass the US citizenship test, found an inconsistency in the US constitution that could turn the US into a dictatorship. Most people believe that this flaw was with Article V of the constitution, which deals with amending the document. This could be used to amend all of the different parts of the constitution, most likely starting with amending Article V itself so that the President has full amending power. He/she then works to get rid of every freedom found in the constitution and establish themselves as the supreme leader of the nation.
