Most Americans who have graduated from high school, were exposed to a class in civics and American history. In that class, the history of the American Revolution and it’s importance to the establishment of our Constitution was paramount. The class emphasized the basic tenets of our government, such as the separation of powers among the branches: executive (president), legislative (Congress), and judicial (Supreme Court).
The concept of “checks and balances” within our government was emphasized as to why our Constitution has proven to be very beneficial to our nation’s growth and fairness. It may be concluded that our Constitution was written to limit the powers of the branches, so as to pressure them to compromise to follow the will of the people for their own governance.
Today, such limits have been devoured by the executive branch, wherein it has decreed that it has the authority to change an existing law. This is tyranny, plain and simple. If such actions continue, we will experience a silent American coup de’etat.
