America: An Experiment in a Republic

The Republic is based on a balance of power between 3 branches of government. The founding fathers were very leery of monarchy. America had fought a war against a monarch and was seeking citizen rule. Executive branch includes the President; Legislative, which includes the Congress and the Senate; and Judicial, which are the courts. The Constitution holds that one branch can not withhold or have power over another branch.

We celebrate July 4, 1776 as the founding of the Republic. This lasted until January of 2020 when many in the Legislative Branch colluded and formed a Monarchy with the Executive Branch. The Legislative Branch has been colluding for years to disrupt the Judicial Branch and make it an arm of the Executive Branch in violation of the Constitution.

For these reasons there is nothing to celebrate in the demise of the Republic except of life that lived far longer than many thought it could. The Republic is now just a tool of Capitalism in it’s worst form of greed and money manipulation, or Oligarchy. 150 families in America control 90% of the wealth and resources of the Republic and so a citizen’s voice has long been a whisper in the wilderness.
