Checks and Balances
Checks and balances are of the essence of our constitutional system, which was designed to protect our democracy from autocratic rule. The U.S. Constitution, as amended, is one of the great achievements of humankind, but it doesn’t provide a mechanism for checking a corrupt president who is supported by a corrupt majority of senators of his party, a corrupt attorney general, and corrupt judges in critical positions.
American democracy is on the ropes, and Trump and his allies are doing everything they can to knock it out of the ring, before he is voted out of office and forced to relinquish power.
