I have to wonder these days, where exactly are those checks and balances? Will they save us or not?
I also have to wonder, why don’t we vet our presidential candidates as we do his appointments? Why is the president allowed a free ride? Shouldn’t it be a law that we see his or her taxes? That his psychological health be evaluated? That his business connections be disclosed? Seems all that has gone by the wayside.
Is it also ok to flagrantly disregard our Constitution? I just heard that there is a bill being brought forward to allow discrimination because of religious beliefs and another one to allow churches to support political candidates.
I guess the real question is, does Democracy really work? In the end, will it survive?
