You Are Part of the Checks and Balances (an editorial)


Checks and Balances by Ronald D. Drobeck


Isn’t it amazing how the Constitution of the United States has protected itself and it’s believers?
It’s checks and balances function has stopped a hostile president from rushing himself and the citizens into more trouble than we can handle.
What damage was done happened because our Congress was sleeping and infiltrated with enough damaged and un-American mentalities to truly test the stopgaps installed to prevent just such a dysfunctional Congress.
Much of the damage was done by enough Constitutional tampering that was in some cases innocently installed and actually attempted to defeat the stopgaps in the name of honest attempts to speed up some procedures. These tampered with rules were taken advantage of with an accelerated amount of criminality and negative manipulation. An attack by  a future administration was anticipated along the way, but certainly not expected.  It did happen! Subsidized voting, and corruption outvoted the honest vote just enough to allow truths to emerge as the Constitution defended itself.
Our Constitution is still able to defend itself today because a few good men have stood up and are allowing the ‘checks and balances’ rules to work.
I wrote this to ask those of you that understand why I wrote this, and why writing this is even necessary, to stand up and support those in our Senate and House that are fighting back.
We must better choose those that are voting, to not only repair the damage to our Constitution’s integrity, but reverse the mental downfall of American’s attitudes.
The great American Dream does not transpose down to the welfare system. We must re-instate it as, a dream, creativity, planning, hard work, and sometimes a measure of good luck.
Religion, yes religion! My backbone is mine. My religion is not a crutch. I don’t wear it on my sleeve. I do believe that we need to be strong and make up our mind what our religious rules are as a nation. Otherwise, we leave an open door through which will walk what we see now. They will use their religion as leverage in attempts to elbow their way in. Stop that at the door!
Finally, the best of America is yet to be seen and YOU are part of the checks and balances. Start defending yourself and your country!
