tom: One of the best things about our democratic republic is our 3 branches of Government.. The first or number one branch is Congress. Congress creates the legislation based on the will of the people they represent. The number two most important branch is our judicial branch that makes sure that legislation passed is Constitutional. And finally the least important branch is the executive branch or the President if you will..Our problem of the past 30 years has not been the President but the weak ineffective 535 representatives we have elected. If they have actually done the will of the people, compromising, negotiating and passing good ole common sense legislation we wouldn't be so divided today.
