BALANCE? WHAT BALANCE?


William Andrew Dillard

I do not propose to be a constitutional lawyer, but I feel deeply that I understand more about that foundational document of the United States of America than a lot of “so-called” lawyers do, and much of what now makes up congress. If possible, I want to present some thoughts on balance of power in government without digressing too much on so many tempting thoughts.
Our republic is the expression of tremendous wisdom on the part of our founding fathers. The three branches of government: Executive, Judicial, Legislative are so designed to create a balance of power offering good governing actions, licenses, restrictions, etc. on the part of the governed: the citizens of the nation, most certainly including those who make up and staff those branches. In the simplist of terms, the legislative branch has the responsibility to make laws, and fund their implementation. The judicial branch has the responsibility of determining whether the laws the legislative branch makes are constitutional (not contrary to the meaning of the constitution as originally written). The executive branch has the responsibility of executing those laws, and of protecting by the power of his actions the citizens of the nation. Excuse me, but I am searching in vain for balance in the way the branches of government are operating today.
Congress refuses to make necessary laws for the good of the country. Judicial courts issue edicts blocking the actions of the executive branch. The process seems to be a designed program to bring the function of government to a halt, and swinging the doors wide open to lawlessness and chaos in other matters as well.
When will the judicial branch discipline itself? The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is obviously staffed with left wing liberals whose decisions are overturned most of the time. Yet, they have the power to stop the actions of the executive branch? It should be dissolved! The legislative branch revels in its own quagmire of do nothing but feather their own bed. What will happen to our beloved country when it becomes largely dysfunctional? Where are the statesmen? Revolution will undoubtedly occur, but the ensuing form will not be pleasing to those clamoring for its present demise, nor friendly toward freedom loving people. God’s people should be much in prayer for heavenly help to thwart the designs of the socialistic communists who are doing their dead level best to take the republic down. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
