We must keep the government in check. It has been OUR mission since The Constitution of the United States was agreed upon.
If the people are not vigilant/ hyper vigilant the Government could become too powerful. You don't think so?
(The Mellenials don't)
We, the people of the United States of America, are the ones that must keep it, the government and those who WE elect to run it) in check.
Thank You, Tea Partiers and those who voted for Donald J. Trump, a positive thinker, a business man and someone who cares about MORE than just his own glory/power, (which is true ... despite the slander and lies of the left.) He cares for the freedom and success of our people/this nation/UNION. He is allowed to work for US, thanks to the democratic principles we maintain and continue to maintain in our republic of states. We can be thankful for him and him alone, at this point. He must be elected again or the government will become chaotic and overblown.
Trump is a perverted lying creep who deserves to be ousted as soon as possible.
We The People of the United States of America must bring our governors in check less they destroy the entire earth. The means of doing it began when this nation began The Atomic Age in the 1930s that has come into fruition during the 2000s.
The means of doing that is We The People must study the constitution to see it proclaims the governors are Trustees of The People without any authority to do anything in this nation without the consent of We The People. We must demand, as the constitution instructs via petitioning our governors, that they understand they are governors of the people, by the people and for the people and they are not governed by corporations' money and perks that makes them millionaires. They must know, especially with today's instant communication, that they are required to consult their constituents before making any decision and the will of We The People must be fulfilled.
My POV: Our governors has never implemented the constitution and too few people know enough about it to force its implementation, THAT HAS TO CHANGE.
It has been an ongoing struggle dating back to its inception to keep the Constitution neutral and uncontaminated by special interests. Here are some proposed amendments that were not passed:
1. 1876 -- an attempt to abolish the Senate
2. 1876 -- to forbid religious leaders from holding a government office or receiving federal funds
3. 1878 -- to replace the office of president with an Executive Council of Three
4. 1893 -- to rename the country "the United States of the Earth
5. 1893 -- to abolish the U.S. Army and Navy
6. 1894 -- to acknowledge that the Constitution recognize God and Jesus Christ as the supreme authorities in human affairs
7. 1912 -- to make marriage between races illegal
8. 1914 -- making divorce illegal
9. 1916 -- all acts of war must be put to a national vote, and anyone voting in favor of war must register as a volunteer for the U.S. Army
10. 1930 -- to limit personal wealth to $1,000,000
11. 1936 -- an attempt to allow the American people to vote on whether or not the U.S. should go to war
12. 1938 -- to outlaw drunkenness in the U.S. and all its territories
13. 1947 -- to cap the income tax for an individual at 25%
14. 1948 -- to allow citizens the right to segregate themselves from others
15. 1971 -- American citizens should have the alienable right to an environment free of pollution
So there you have it. Been some whoppers, haven't there? And the beat goes on.

MizB, your numbers 9 and 11 are not literally written but implied when we see all government leaders are "Trustees" of the people, in Article 6, who represent the people. That means with today's instant communicating they should have the people of their states to tell them how to decide every decision they make. That was not available them so I can see why it wasn't implemented then.
Hey, Elijah, I'm not implying anything. Those were actual amendments that were proposed by somebody, and they didn't get passed. I was just pointing out how our congressmen and senators try to get their own self interests amended into the constitution. These all failed. But you are right that the sponsors did not represent the people's will on these.
I did miss word that, MizB, I was meaning but what is written in the constitution imply it when we see all government leaders are Trustees of the people, in Article 6, who represent the people. With today's instant communicating congress should have the people of their states to tell them how to decide every decision. It was not available them so I can see why it wasn't implemented then.
The government has put something in my computer that causes me so much trouble that I'm having trouble just to write something. It must work on all WiFi except Apple's because I'm waiting in the apple store and nothing is happening but I'M GOING TO LEACE IT for them the give in a visual and electronic going over. They must have had to leave in a hurry because 5 screws are missing out of the LapTop.
He cares for the freedom and success of our people/this nation/UNION. He is allowed to work for US, thanks to the democratic principles we maintain and continue to maintain in our republic of states.
If the is not working for us for US,
WHO IS HE WORKING FOR?
Russia. He thinks Putin will put him on a permanent throne in this country.
If he is not working for us US,
WHO IS HE WORKING FOR?
In my opinion, he's working for himself, his wealthy circle of friends, his family, and businesses he has a vested interest in.
Don't forget Vladimir Putin.
Hmm. I wonder why our President hasn't pushed for legislation to block election interference by foreign countries ...
I think 45 openly entertains any an all forces that are willing to help him --whether they be Russians, racists, or otherwise. There is no line as long as he's getting something out of the deal. It seems that is the business principle he brought to the White House. He does want to win, personally, and he treats the country as a tool to help him do so. He won't condemn or address Russian interference, he won't condemn white supremacist groups, and he won't address police brutality. Trump reveled in the results of the Mueller Investigation, but ignored the part where he said that attempts by the Russians to interfere in our elections was perhaps the greatest threat to democracy he's seen in his career.
If people do not let elected officials do the job that other people elected them to do. Then they do not work for anyone. If people do not respect election results then why bother at The Ballot Box ?
If the elected officials were doing their jobs as implied in the Constitution they would ask those they represent how to vote everything they have before them. It isn't stated implied in the constitution.
He is supposed to be working for the people, as all government workers are supposed to be doing, but any and every thing Trump does is for himself. He put his family in positions so he could attempt to "Obstruct Justice" like he and Barr did concerning his investigation.
I thought this laid out the case of Trump's "working for us" pretty well:
https://www.citizensforethics.org/case- … iry-trump/
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington today calls on the United States House of Representatives to initiate a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump. At a minimum, the inquiry should assess President Trump’s obstruction of the investigation of Russia’s attack on the 2016 election (including the investigation of his own efforts to impede it), his participation in a scheme to defraud enforcement of federal campaign finance laws that continued through the first year of his presidency, and his acceptance of profits, gains, or advantages from foreign and domestic governments in violation of the Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution. These three courses of conduct merit scrutiny because Congress could conclude that they were “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” committed in violation of President Trump’s constitutional oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.
