Checks & Balances

"The cavalier attitude toward the checks and balance of a democratic society is a pattern with this administration. Bush and Cheney regard Congress and the judiciary as obstacles, not as equal branches of government."

Sounds a bit too close to home? Yeah, I thought so too...

  1. Z,

    You are giving us too much credit by mentioning our political system in the same breath as Montsequieu's notion of how a democracy should be run.

    Never mind the separation of the branches of government; we are not even a democracy to begin with. We are just a big Diwaniya, that's all.

    Happy New Year! :)
