What is Happening To America?

People need facts and a civics lesson. Presidencies are limited in power by the other government branches. From 1947 to 1995, the House held a democratic majority for 46 years throughout the terms of five republican presidents. And all but eight years, the Senate held a democratic majority. During six years of Reagan’s presidency, the senate had a republican majority but was offset by a democratic congress.

One branch does not dictate all the power. However, if all three are party partisan, agendas are shoved through the system without opposition. At that point we hope that a filibuster takes place.

When it comes to weakening unions, research the cause and demise of many companies. Sometimes too much want by contracts cause companies seeking other avenues to stay solvent. When profit is lacking, everyone is at risk. Tread lightly when anyone accuses the “republican” congress.

Big government IS the problem. When having problems with your own state government, we should not allow the federal government to intrude in personal issues. In freshman high school civics (1965-1966), the duty of the federal government is to defend our country from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Wasting time and taxes investigating athletes using steroids is not a viable duty.

The American dream is vanishing and as long as our president keeps appointing agency czars (over 30 plus), not only is he gaining power for himself, but he gave those czars power that disregards congressional oversight. Voters are presently disgruntled and we are deep in debt. Do not let our president circumvent our sacred document, the United States Constitution.
