Atrayo said:I also believe that the US Executive branch of instead of having a solidtary President. Should actually be split into a tribunal of Presidents, with their vice-presidents in tow. Since only one man as the head of the nation may be too much work or power for the Executive branch to handle. Perhaps each of the proposed tribunal presidents would represent one political party. Such as one Republician, Democrat, and a third majority party which the US very much lacks at present. Where one of the tribunal presidents could strictly handle domestic affairs. The other just handles foreign affairs, with the third doing anything else the other two tribunal presidents need assistance with for agreed upon intiatives.
Rach, i agree! just think how much we would save if we bought services from the private sector.honestrosewater said:Well, I agree, the American political scene is in a mess. But I don't think introducing more diversity at the federal level is the solution. Diversity has already been incorporated into the system, in the form of state and local governments.
I think the solution is to shift the political power back to where it belongs, with the individual citizens, at the local level. The federal government has expanded its jurisdiction far beyond what’s beneficial. People’s disagreement on an issue should signal a further division at local level, not an all-encompassing law at the federal level.
The name says it all, United States. US citizens don’t have to agree about everything. Only agreement on federal issues is required. Each further disagreement is a matter for the different state and local governments. The lower levels cannot contradict the higher levels, which is why the higher level is restricted in its scope, and defers as much as possible to the level beneath it; so that the lowest level, the citizen, retains as much power as possible. That is the whole point of the system. Anarchist that I am, even I think it’s a good system *when it works*.
so many of the problems the government expends so many resources to fix are problems that the government itself has created.- honestrosewater
