    Nowhere close to what the Founding Fathers envisioned or laid out...

    I think Republicans will be able to gain seats in congress in the next few election cycles and put checks and balances back into this government. I think any damage that will be done will be done in the next year. After that I think it will be business as usual. Not much difference between Democrat or Republican presidents with a divided House and Senate IMO.

    Presidents really don't wield much power without a congress that will rubber stamp their desires.

    I'm not sure exactly how to take your comment brother.

    I must admit I am only 34 but I went to elementary school, high school, and college in conservative states under republican Governors with Republican Presidents in the white house with the exception of the first few Clinton years. I had straight As in my Government and History classes in High School and went on to study in college to be a High School History teacher. I went to conservative churches and lived in coservative communities with conservative values. I also trend Republican in politcal elections although I like to think of myself as Libertarian.

    So if you are somehow insinuating I am the product of a liberal education and I don't know how the government operates I am afraid you are mistaken.

    I am pretty sure the bicameral legislature and the checks and balances between the Legislative and Executive branches exist the way I described them for a long long time now. I suspect that they are the same now as when you were taught about them in school...
