The American Presidency
Gaming the System, Checks and Balances, Higher Order
The Founding Fathers, individually and as a group, embodied a number of attributes. Some of those included awareness, attention, action, resolve, courage and an uncanny prescience.
Gaming the system has been part of the socio-economic landscape throughout history. It seems currently it has taken on the air of something to be applauded.
The Founders’ prescience constructed a system of checks and balances intended to avoid the integrity of the whole from being high-jacked. That balance is significantly out of balance today and appears to be misunderstood by the elected and the electorate. Take a quick look and see what you think.
Then take a look at this sample Ballot and ponder where we need to focus our attention on course correction.
Those Founders also had faith in a higher power and cast their heart, mind, and soul there for guidance.
Here we are on this election eve and once again ‘We the People’ are called to declare independence.
