As for the current debate over the power that the executive branch should enjoy, this is surely one of the great balancing acts in American politics. As we know, in principle, all three branches of government are equal - they share power. Of course the problem is, what do we consider to be equal? For those who feel the frustration of a Congress that is and will always be implicitly slow and incapable of decisive action, consider that the legislative branch is the people's representation. Corrupt, often inept, slow, fickle, these are the complications of a democracy. Dictators make trains run on time, but democracy is complicated. Don't be a wimp.
