With the recent events down at the southern U.S. border, it seems that President Trump is the evil, maniacal bastard that enjoys ripping children from the loving arms of their parents. Meanwhile, back in the house and senate, it seems that business is happening as usual, meaning no one is there. Whatever happens at the border, it must be law, without a law an executive order only lasts the term of the incumbent. An executive order is easily undone with a new President. If congress wants to sit on their hands and blame trump, they are more than able to do just that, nothing. There is no ownership in government, only finger pointing and blame shifting. Yet, we wonder why nothing ever gets done or fixed, and we keep on voting for the same carpet baggers every time. Why, because we are lazy and we are easily fooled into always blaming the other side. While we are out here fighting amongst ourselves, the “fat cats” up in D.C. and all 50 state capitals are sitting back, counting their money.
A king can decree edicts, a United States President can only enact what passes the house first and then the senate. Instead of our elected leaders demonstrating, filibustering and appearing on “news and entertainment” shows, children are being separated from their families. So, again, what is it we desire, to be ruled by a king or do we vote for what we believe in, do we vote for a person or do we vote for action? If our president rules via executive order, then why do we need the other two branches of government? If our government is deadlocked, then perhaps the wrong people have been elected on both sides. Regardless of your political affiliation, if action is what you desire then action is what you should demand from your elected representatives. If your representatives cannot fix it, then why should the president? They only do what we make them do.
