I am not talking about the television show, I am speaking about the society we live in. First, in the sixth grade we learn about civics in the United States and get a brief outline on the powers of government. First, there are three branches of governmental power.
- The first is the Executive Branch, which is a president, governor, or mayor. These are the people who ultimately consider themselves responsible for "attempting to" get the other branches to work properly through dialogue and logical campaigns of cooperation. The president can only direct, advise, and sanction laws and legislation. There are no rulers in government per the United States Constitution.
- The second is the Legislative Branch, which is the people who write and pass legislation into law. They are the ones who are responsible to the public for being "The Voice of the People" in any law, tax, levy, policy, and disputes that our government has with anyone in society. (We can only be responsible for governing ourselves. These people are supposed to be servants of the people, not rulers.)
- The Judicial Branch is the third and final branch of government, and is considered the final word on interpretation of laws, although it is not advised to "legislate from the bench", or make decisions that are unpopular based on personal bias, although judges in all levels of court from Municipal Courts (city courts) to the Supreme Court (federal law decisions) are human and there is apt to be some bias in some cases.
The president can't do what he wants with our country without the complete cooperation the majority of congress.
Those in congress who impede progress in order to further an agenda of blame on the president need to be removed through the process of having a recall election when the people see that they aren't cooperating to cause progress and the benefit of all in our society.
This nation was formed in the beginning by farmers and people who would be considered ignorant and uneducated by today's standards, but the rules were clear set that if the majority of the people demand something then, congress is supposed to comply. It is not their job to tell people what they need. That is called FASCISM and we have no ruling class in the United States, although some wealthy people think that they are going to continue to be allowed to do so. The majority of Americans voted for progress and it hasn't been put into legislation and anyone who is continuing to control legislation and keeping us from said progress is the problem and needs to be removed immediately. Everyone in every state needs to find out what the process is to have a senator or representative recalled from office and do it today with anyone who seeks to stall progress in this country.
