Checks and Balances
With the passage of each day since the 2016 election, I watch — with horror — as every single aspect of what was once the liberal democracy of America is chipped away by this administration. My only hope is the Checks and Balances we learned as young civics students, will stand the test of time against such a repressive and regressive force as is the oligarchs who seem to be blackmailing our president. I remain hopeful, if not skeptical.
Notwithstanding the obvious intervention by the Russians into our election, I wonder how such a horrible, ignorant, bigoted, and truly disturbed man could be elevated to the position of president of most powerful nation on Earth.
I am left with questions.
